Learning the Language of "Hug"
Japanese men don't hug. Even women rarely hug eachother, in my experience. Even so, everyone, (including every Japanese person I've ever met) loves hugs. I think most Japanese are relieved that Americans actually want to hug them and that (in this case) it is okay to "break" the cultural norm.

Well, if you ever want to be close friends with an American, (I'm speaking to my Japanese friends here) then you need to learn the language of the "hug". My good friend Mark Rood (living in Tokyo) instructs the BEST club here well. Go ahead, take some notes...
