When purchasing gifts, why do Japanese shop workers give you an extra bag within your bag?
If your main bag gets damaged via transit, you can put the gift in a clean bag to present to the receiver. It’s always these small thoughts that count! In Japanese we call this “Kizukai.” Japan has a strong gift culture, so it’s a good idea to show appreciation through gift-giving.
A great way to get started? If you’re going on a holiday, pick up some local snacks and gift them to your coworkers and friends.
