  5. There isn’t an appropriate law, but it is an established order in Japan always to serve men first. At the restaurant man is the first to make an order and he is the first to be served. In the shops they greet men first.
  6. It is also interesting that in Japan the concept of tips is absolutely not accepted. If there is established some fee for a certain service it means that the service costs that much.
