Don’t hand over or receive things using just one hand as this is considered rude so make an effort to free both hands during these situations. This applies to giving or receiving gifts or other items, regardless how small they are, such as business cards or meishi. Speaking of which, business cards should not be kept right away as they are meant to be examined or looked at for a while to show your appreciation or interest in the person giving the card. Only after a few moments can you keep it, just don’t place it in your back pocket. In addition, never remain seated when accepting a business card from a Japanese.
