Business Culture of Japan:

In Japan, business cards are called "meishi." It is important to give and receive meishi with both hands. Your business card should be printed in your native language on one side and Japanese on the other. Business cannot begin until the meishi exchange process is complete. The customary greeting is the bow. However, some Japanese may greet you with a handshake, albeit a weak one. The business card should be given after the bow. Understand that the Japanese prefer not to use the word no. If you ask a question they may simply respond with a yes but clearly mean no. Understanding this is critical in the negotiation process.
