A handshake, lots of smiling and bowing, and a expensive Sushi and Fugu dish courtesy of the taxpayer. But that's all. No Antonio, they won't accept refugees. Didn't you hear? Japanese DNA is different from foreigners. We are a special society. We have to fix our own problems. Japanese people are not good at communication. Moshiwakegozaimasen ne! (scratching back of head)

This is a honorable gesture. The people of Japan know manners better than any other country. Good for them to be generous.
