  • Japanese culture may be one of the hardest for people from the U.S. to understand. Thanks for the presentation. It’s really insightful.

    I also like your idea that there’s no need to become Japanese, but it’s essential to keep in mind “why” when doing business with a company from Japan. In the globalization era, a lot of us have clients from various countries, and this idea helps you overcome cultural differences, yet still maintain your individuality. We at Wrike have clients from 50+ countries, and we’re definitely going to keep this useful rule in mind! :)

    We recently did an interview with one of our Japanese customers about the features of their business communications. What she told us correlates a lot with what you mention. It takes a lot of time and effort to build and maintain business relationships with Japanese people. Another difficulty is to understand the underlying message that is often not said directly. If you’re interested, you can check out a Japanese point of view in this post: http://bit.ly/HXDZfF.
