The non-verbal communication and courtesy that you receive in Japan, a country of curtesy  and non-verbal language, guide you to be authentic

Mari Cecilia Murata

Japan, the Land of Civility

Why is it beneficial to learn from Japanese culture?

Did you know why the world’s leading experts learn about Japanese culture?

In today’s global society, the necessary skills for communication are often considered to include soft skills, non-verbal communication, acceptance of cultural differences in cross-cultural communication and courtesy.

On the psychological side, the importance of perseverance and persistence is frequently expressed these days all over the world.

In fact, all of these are undeniably communication skills, concepts and principles that have been valued by Japan ever since the ancient times.

Consequently, international protocol and etiquette, as well as intercultural understanding, are of great value to be learnt from Japan.

The international etiquette and protocol we impart was originally certified in the UK.

In the course of our research, we discovered that the underlying spirit and civility are the very ideas and customs that Japan observed through the ages.

For instance, while it seems to be common in Western countries for people to be more self-centred than considerate of others, Japan is a culture that has a basic mindset of being considerate of others and giving priority to others.

Japanese people are also skilled in non-verbal communication and are able to read what others are thinking even without using language.

Many people from overseas argue that it would be impossible to read Japanese body language, especially that of men, but in fact, it is more complicated to read women’s true intentions in Japan, and men give signs relatively simply.

Once you are able to read the facial expressions and body language of the Japanese, who are known as the ultimate poker face, you will be able to accurately decipher messages from almost any person in the world.

As well as observing the civility of caring, the art of non-verbal communication allows you to read thoughts accurately and communicate smoothly while avoiding potential risks.

In addition to being recognised worldwide as specialists in their field, ICPA participants are able to learn these skills specifically as our experts are from Japan, the most courteous country on the globe.
