I remember this from about thirty years ago. My employer (a Japanese) and I had been invited to the wedding of a student of mine. My boss asked me discreetly how much I was going to be putting im my envelop[e as a gift to the student. I thought nothing of it at the time and told him. I then mentioned it to my wife (a Japanese) and she was a bit taken aback. She said he had asked because it would not have looked good on his part for me to have given more than he as he was a higher position in the school than I. I only wish that I would have fibbed and told him about three times as much as I actualy gave !

I still remember some of the U.S. "stars" trashing the dorms after their appearance in the 1998 Games in Nagano. I believe some of them were made to pay restitution.
