Section 3. Appropriate Manners in Leave‐Taking

1. When parents, teachers, mentors, elders, relatives or close acquaintances travel far or move away, each person who is related should send them off at the appointed place, or should, before the departure, give a farewell party to express their regrets.
2. When a foreign guest of honor, or a leader in an organization, society, or nation travels far away or moves away, representatives of a related authority or social organization should send that person off at the office or residence of that person. Depending on the situation, either the public at large, or its representatives should give a farewell ceremony or banquet before that person.
3. A farewell, a ceremony, and a banquet should always be given appropriately. A ceremony or banquet, if appropriate, may be omitted, and instead a farewell gift or farewell money may be presented.
