A mention of table manners in another part of this forum sent me looking on the 'Net for insight into Japanese manners. I tripped overthis antique book on Japanese manners. Enjoy!

Taikun, meaning great prince. Somebody can confirm that it's 大君?

I received a message to confirm that yes, it is 大君.

Ercan, are you planning on time travel, too?

this what happens when you think in Turkish and write in English. You sholud have the same problem with Japanese sometimes. Yes, I meant 2008, I am eagerly waiting but got my ticket already.

Hi all

this book is a real treat IMHO. Thank you so much for sharing, Liz.

On the related note, I have experienced several very small but interesting patterns of behavior during the party tonight. I admire how many of the Japanese customs have been "designed" to promote harmony and the sense of community. By looking at the patterns of behavior being promoted, one can actually learn a lot about the essence of human nature and maybe even further.

peace
