Uchi-soto is a Japanese social custom of making a distinction between your inside people and outside people. The purpose of this division is to humble your in-group and honor your out-group.


This concept can apply to family, social, and work situations. The tricky part is, the in-group and out-group often changes depending on the social situation.
