Q.  Is it ever appropriate to tip at a Japanese restaurant in Japan-?  How about a sushi-ya?

~Claudia

 

 

 

 

A.  Nope!  Japan is a land where tipping is an alien concept-- it's not done to anyone there, ever, which makes it an easy rule to remember, and even easier to follow.  Instead, everyone- including people in roles where we in America would normally tip- is paid a decent salary.  Incidentally, The Food Virgin once tried to tip some especially helpful hotel staff, but that just ended in a lot of embarrassed Japanese-style giggling, and the return of my money.  So relax, and enjoy your next trip there!  P.S.  When in America, tip as per usual at Japanese restaurants, like you would at any other.
