One thing to note, however, that when working with people from Japan (or most other East Asian countries), it is a grave insult to write on their business card. You also do not place the business card loosely in your shirt pocket or pants pocket, but into a sleeve in a notebook or your business card carrier. Google has many good resources on the peculiarities and particulars of Asian business card etiquette.

Jason Jacobsohn

Good point Joe. This is one reason why you shouldn't write on the cards in front of people. At the same time, you need to respect the culture of other people so in this case, you may just need to takes notes on paper. If you do it this way, then you should take the notes sooner than later so you don't forget.
