DO NOT Violate The Ninja Code By Falling In Love

If you’ve ever been to Japan, you know that it is a country of obstinate politeness. It’s not optional, and is executed with such intensity and skill that the casual tourist is often caught up in a whirlwind of faux pas and shame. To help visitors to the empire of the sun out, we’ve found this handy video laying out which kind of bow is appropriate for every occasion. For instance, I was especially interested to learn the Deep Bow, for instances when “yours is the only child to make the grade” or “you’ve eaten all the food.” (The latter being especially relevant to me). Watch, learn, and stop being being a bumbling American fool.
