Vertical Society

I don't know all that much about other cultures in Asia, but I know Japanese society is supremely concerned with hierarchy and social status. You don't even say good morning to someone without considering the status of the relationship between the speaker and the adressee. Foreigners who stay in Japan inevitably find that that it is very hard to determine exactly where they rank. Well, they need wonder no more. All they need to do is consult The Japan Hierarchy.
