It’s Japanese tradition to have dinner and afterward gatherings with clients and partners. Japanese businessmen make connections with others through casual and informal appointments. However, this time we had dinner by ourselves alone. We did enjoy the great dinner together.
After dinner, we met with one of our president’s friends, also our partner. I truly experienced Japanese tradition that night. That was an unforgettable and impressive memory.
The other day of the business trip we participated in an industry expedition with similar technology to ours. The experience taught me a lesson why similar companies have to make connections with each other.
