People say that no Japanese in the service industry receive a tip. It is incorrect.
It is unnecessary to tip to people who are a worker of a company. They are a taxi driver, a waitress/waiter of a restaurant, a hotel worker, and so on. They get enough monthly salary and a bonus twice a year in a long life employment system.
However, it is common to tip to the tour guides because they are freelancers, not under a company's wing with fringe benefits.
