When socializing with the Japanese, like when having a drink out in bars or restaurants, or in someone’s home and you get to taste some of their excellent whiskey or sake, make sure you remember the Japanese etiquette concerning the pouring of alcohol. You can refill the glass of your companions but don’t make the mistake of pouring a drink for yourself as this is considered a rude gesture. This should be in turn done by one of your companions. Also, when pouring a drink, make sure that you hold the bottle with both hands, no matter what size it is, as this is the custom.
