Good manners of taking your shoes off

靴を脱ぐ時のマナー 

I will show you the proper rules for when you must take your shoes off when visiting Japanese homes, Ryokan(Japanese style hotel) and restaurants.To put it simply, take your shoes off in the entrance(玄関Genkan), turn your body towards the door and squat down on the floor. Place your shoes tidily together and turn your shoes to point to the door. It is done.

Please see more details below.
1, When visiting someone’s home, after the host says “Please come in”, you should reply “Shitsurei shimasu” or “ Ojama shimasu”,which are common Japanese greetings.
2, Look toward the host and take your shoes off,and step up to the hallway.If you have a bag or a coat, put them in the corner of the hallway,and then take your shoes off.
3,Squat down and go your knees on the floor , then turn your shoes to point towards the door after you have removed them. At this time, squatting down diagonally, keeping your buck away from your host, is a very polite behavior.
4, If someone’s shoes aren’t placed properly, arranging them makes you an expert.
Keep in mind that it is never polite to face your back towards your host, when you are taking your shoes off. You should always be facing them directly.

個人宅、旅館、料亭などに訪問する時の正しいマナーをご紹介。簡単に言うと、玄関に入って直進。そのまま靴を脱いでからくるりと体を返す。そしたら、斜めにしゃがんで靴を揃えると完了!詳細はこちら
①まず玄関先で「どうぞお上がりください」と声をかけられてから、「失礼します」「お邪魔します」と言って玄関前に進みます。
②そのまま迎えてくれる相手側を向いたまま、靴を脱いで玄関にあがります。コートや荷物がある時は、玄関の端に置いてから靴を脱ぎましょう。
➂次に横向きにしゃがんで膝をついてから、手で靴の向きを変えます。扉側に靴の先を向けて揃えましょう。この時の相手に背中やお尻を見せないように、体を斜めにすることがポイント!
④さらに、自分より前に家に入った人の靴が揃っていなかったら、揃えてあげると上級者。
相手に背中を見せたままで靴を脱いで揃えてあがるのは失礼なので、気を付けましょう。
