There is no tipping practice in Japan, which is rooted in the concept of full dedication to the work assigned. The waiter at your table is expected and inspired to anyway do his/her best. Secondly there is a strong sense of collective responsibility towards the whole establishment with very little tendency to individually stand out or expect individual gains.
