What behaviour to avoid in Japan?

Posted in Japan forum

I have never been outside of Europe before, so I would like to prepare myself before going to Japan next month. What are the common mistakes tourist do in Japan? What should be avoided? I already know you shouldn't blow your nose in public, walk on a tatami mat wearing shoes or leave the chopsticks standing upright in a bowl of rice.. What more should a tourist know so that they don't embarras themselves?

    Japanese know that foreigners don't know, they'll let you know. : ) Just be cautious when not sure what to do and they'll help.
