This is a picture of a Japanese building. The customs in Japan for dining etiquette are when you get in somewhere to eat, it is tradition to take off your shoes. When you come to the table, you should bow and be seated quietly. You shouldn't talk or shake hands with people while you are eating. When you seat down you are servered a small piece of cake before your main meal. Crumbs from the cake can't fall anywhere but the plate. You can only talk when not eating food ( be quiet!). When you are done your tea, you put the cup in the seam of the tatami (the tatami is a mat connected to the floor). Finally, you never put your legs directly infront of you, you want to kneel or sit sideways.
