What to tip: The Japanese are way too polite to accept tips (good service is standard), so don’t even try.
That means: If a Sapporo and some Yakitori at Birdland sets you back 6,960 yen in Tokyo, shell out 6,960 yen. Simple!
What to tip: The country's been gringo-fied, and the expectation sits at 10-15% at restos. For anything else, you can get away with 10 to 20 pesos (70 cents to $1.50), but keep in mind the minimum wage is under $5/ day.
That means: If the chicken wing platter sets you back 280 pesos at Señor Frog's, leave 310 and you're good to go. Wait, why are you ordering food at Señor Frog's?
