Don’t Shake Your Legs When Seating Down

Some people have a habit of shaking their leg or knee or tapping with their leg when sitting down, and nobody really knows why they do it. But more often than not, this is an unconscious habit. However, when in Japan, avoid doing this as it is considered rude. Their term for the shaking of one’s leg is known as bimbo yusuri, and for them it indicates or means that the person doing it is impatient or nervous about something or lacks self-control, and this can have a negative effect on their social or professional life. You’re unlikely to be told to stop shaking your leg by a Japanese because they tend to avoid conflict and it would be considered embarrassing for the person doing it.
