What should I know about Japanese greetings?

ohayo gozaimasu gives a sense of belonging

Ohayo gozaimasu is what we usually say in the morning, before switching to konichiwa.

But it is also used as a greeting among members of a community, or at the office, usually a community that will perform some tough job or sports together.

It gives a sense of belonging. This ohayo gozaimasu is not unlike the give-me-a-five.
