Here are some body language meanings which can help you understand what other people are conveying.

JAPANESE  BODY LANGUAGE

Communicating with a Japanese can be very frustrating at times. If the rapport hasn’t been developed, they tend to communicate in brief, but meaningful sentences, and a lot of times can be very ambiguous in their answers or wants.

Silence is more integrated in their customs as a form of communication. Also, the Japanese tend to be passive resistance. Therefore, it is very important that you understand the Japanese body language. Coupling the knowledge of the Japanese body language with verbal communication will help avoid misunderstandings between you and your Japanese conversationalist.
