     Perhaps for the people of Japan, the concept of money is slightly different from many other places in the world. They see money as a result of labor, so if you put extra money off the list they will feel insulted because they feel like they are not paid enough so they need a tip.

     Therefore, Japanese service providers will not accept tips from customers. According to them, customer satisfaction is their duty and responsibility. Even Japanese restaurants in foreign countries do not accept customer tips. Tokyo Diner in London recommends that customers don’t tip and any extra money is left to the homeless.

Unlike the practicality of thanking money, this is a beauty in Japanese culture, full of sincerity and warmth.

      In some other countries, when you go to the supermarket without a few cents, the person next to you can take you freely and you can accept and thank them. But that won’t be in Japan. The Japanese don’t like to disturb others, and especially money is a sensitive issue. In Japan, if you want to give someone money, you need to be higher than them.

      If you can wait to get some change back when shopping, nobody will be upset or laugh at you. Even if it is your money, you have the right to do whatever it takes, but the attitude that is considered honorable and disrespectful of that money will be judged bad. Do you show your arrogant attitude to the effort you spend and if you do not appreciate the small, you will not be able to create and bigger ones.
