Pay for what?

We are preparing new system for consumption tax in Japan.  Tax rate is rased 10 % in this autumn.  However, some commodities such as food and daily papers are not the target of tax boost.
In Europe, there is a relatively long history of consumption tax, so the tax rate is higher than other areas, and there are various rates in every countries.  However, the history of consumption tax is not so long in Japan, so we are confused that there are diffirent tax rates which is applied for our shopping.
We do not have a custom to pay tips to waiters in restaurant.  Japaness have a custom to pay money to a commodity itself.  On the contraly, people in Europe tend to pay money not only for commodities but also services which further includes public services to buy it.
Many Japanese are confused of paying for such services when travel abroad, so some do not pay tips, some ask whether the account is accurate.  But even if consumption tax rate is rased and complicated, foreigners who travels Japan will be easy to accomodate to this new system.
We Japanese have to know world standard of shopping before preparing for new tax syatem.
I hope you will have a noce time this week.
