Working With Japanese Customers
Before you begin communication with Japanese clients and customers, it’s important to be aware of the cultural differences and familiarize yourself with Japanese telephone etiquette. After all, you don’t want to lose customers because they don’t like your phone manner. Although many of your callers will be speaking English, it makes things easier if you can at least answer the phone in Japanese. “Moshi moshi,” meaning hello, is the usual way to answer a phone call.
It is important to remain courteous to your Japanese callers at all times. When you are making a call, avoid calling during early morning hours, during lunch hour or around the time when you know your client or customer may be busy. Between 5-7 pm is a reasonable time if the call is not urgent. If the person you are speaking with is a customer, always let them disconnect the call before you put the phone down.
When you are answering a call from a Japanese client or customer, try to answer the phone as quickly as possible once it starts ringing. Ideally, this should be within three rings. If you need to pass the call on to a business associate or employee, always put the caller on hold, so that they cannot hear your conversation. When the caller is on hold, don’t make him or her wait too long. If you cannot handle their concern at that moment, take a message and ask them to call back later or ask your associate to return the call when he or she is able to.
