Exclamation Know your Japanese!

Japanese bowing carries different meanings at different angles.

- A bow at an angle of five degrees means "Good day"

- A bow at an angle of fifteen degrees is also a common
salutation, a bit more formal it means "Good morning"

- A bow at an angle of thirty degrees is a respectful bow to
indicate appreciation for a kind gesture.

- A bow at a forty-five-degree angle is used to convey deep
respect or an apology.

And a bow at a ninety-degree angle with a slight wiggle means
you are welcoming another baboon.
