What is the response to a sneeze?

Postby Jeimuzu on Tue Mar 31, 2015 7:23 pm

I'm getting bored of saying Bless You or Gesundheit when someone sneezes, so what response is usually given in Japan?

:blowup:

I think people politely ignore it.

Sneezing is a faux pas in Japan, like farting in the West.

According to Wikipedia:

... it is very rare for anyone to acknowledge a sneeze in Japan and it is customary not to say anything at all.

In some places in Japan if somebody sneezes and boogies come out the person to first see the boogies has to bow and apologise.
