    I agree. Be yourself and all should be fine. Whatever you do, don't fart in front of them...

    definitely be yourself but ill also add be as polite as possible. japanese people are incredibly polite so i assume this would be the case for your future family. id pull out all the stops and treat them like royalty.

    dont forget to bow!

    I would definitely wear a Wookie costume, or dress up like a Samurai. If you really wanna make an impression, wear a Pearl Harbor memorial costume.

    Be yourself and just have manners.

    No need for a "costume." That's just ridiculous.

    You're marrying her, not her family.

    I'm in favor of the Samurai outfit. You should also set up the Ninja Warrior obstacle course in a room in your house.

    Make them all dinner. Gather them around the table, and using an electric skillet make "choppy choppy" noises and yell a lot.....maybe toss an egg in the air and catch it with the spatula

    Dude, I'm totally surprised that you aren't telling this guy that he's making a huge mistake by getting married. Is this a new, more marriage-friendly P.O.E.?

    Um, have you tried asking your fiance? I mean, she would know the customs best, and what standards her family holds to. She would know the do's and don'ts better than a bunch of random people on the internet.

    I wanted to put some costumes up to add to the Japanese decor, I mean my house looks pretty Japanese as it is and since I have some mannequins I thought I might use them...BTW dont correct anyone if u also make mistakes while typing.
