slurp is good in Japan but not in U.S

We all enjoy eating food. This is a boon. People should enjoy what they eat. Some squeeze, some make a sound, some people gasp while eating. Any objection to you if he enjoys his food? Definitely not. But, one should while eating if not for personal reason but for the sake of people sitting beside you who may be from the U.S and other countries who treat this as irritating and rude. But, in Japan slurping is accepted. This is not viewed as a rude method but looked as an appreciation of the Chef who prepared it. Next time when you visit Japan, try to learn slurp....but not elsewhere...

@shivamani10 If you finish all the food from your bowl or all dishes are empty, the hosts may think that the food is not enough and you may be still hungry. And leaving a little bit food on the plate is a kind of good manner sometimes. As somebody may like it but nobody wants to take the last food because they also worry others want it, too.
