Etiquette in Japan

Jump to last reply

We are going to Japan next month and I have an etiquette question regarding tours. We have several tours planned.One is a paid tour and several others are conducted by volunteers. For the volunteer tour guides, we are expected to pay their public transportation expenses, admission fees and the cost of any meals. In addition, we are bringing some small, inexpensive gifts from home (USA).

My question is should we bring some similar gifts to the tour guide who is being paid for his services? Would it be a breach of etiquette to not do so?
