Windhoek - Namibia
Windhoek Food Tasting Tour: Private Guided Tour
Avoid the number 4 at all costs.
In Japan, the number "four" is avoided because it sounds very similar to the word for death.Just like how 13 is “unlucky” in Western cultures, 4 is unlucky in Japan. If you’re giving gifts, avoid giving anything in groups of fours because it will be perceived as ominous. Elevator labels will often be missing a fourth floor, and while it may seem strange, this fear of 4 is actually common in many East Asian and Southeast Asian regions.
In fact, if you don't eat loudly enough, it can be mistaken as you not enjoying your food, so slurp away!
Hostess gifts are expected.
In Japan, it is an honor to be invited into someone’s home. If you are lucky, be sure to arrive with a gift for your host. If you are given a gift, it is good practice to strongly protest the gift at first, but never refuse the gift in the end.
