They say "Ittikemasu" before eating, something to excuse themselves after eating, they stand up, bow, and sit down during homeroom (:D), they say a certain phrase before opening a door and entering, they say something like "Onegai shehtrenobh..." to say that they will be in someone's care, like when they are at someone else's house, or visiting, they address people with formal titles pretty much all the time, it seems that there are tons of pre-modern families that take on many older traditions (Maybe it's just me... and this isn't a tradition, but I felt like adding it)

There's a lot of other stuff I forgot to add, but I'll do it later when I remember.

xD I know, I have absolutely no life.

Traditionally Japanese people cut their hair to symbolize that they were heart broken.
i'm not sure if that exists in other cultures. who knows, maybe. But that's the first i've heard of it when i watched Shinigami no ballad.

Another one is when sempias give kouhias their 2nd button it means they are giving them their hearts. sweet.

Japanese students take off their shoes even in school, I guess leaving your shoes on at someone's house would be an offense

many Asians do these kind of things too... I'm a Filipino and we have to take our shoes even in school too... some schools don't follow this though... leaving your shoes on someone's house is also a major offense...

I learned their tea ceremony thingy, it's so important to them... and their suffixes after the names- i don't think it's tradition but oh well....

school customs (ie. wearing uniforms, changing shoes etc)

and it's 'ittadakimasu' before eating, 'ittekimasu' when leaving the house, and 'itterashai' when wishing someone a safe journery (like 'leave well' kinda) and 'onegaishimasu' can be used under many circumstances. usually its used as a way as 'please take care of me' or 'please help me' but the literal translations would be 'i beg of you'. xD
