Sushi, ramen, tempura, yakiniku... The list goes on. We love our Japanese food (we know you do too!) and there's nothing more amazing than enjoying authentic halal Japanese food in Japan. [iframe src="//giphy.com/embed/ye24nNs3FeWfS" width="480" height="260" frameBorder="0" class="giphy-embed" allowFullScreen][/iframe] But like every other country out there, there are some dining taboos that you absolutely have to know, especially if you're planning to indulge in a traditional Japanese multi-course meal, also known as kaiseki! Thanks to Denise Kim and Gourmet Society Philippines, you can now easily learn the basics of Japanese dining etiquette! So as we always say, when travelling, do like the locals do! いただきます itadakimasu! [P.S Check out the dos and dont's in Japan with this travel etiquette 101!]
