Question about Japanese

So recently, I found a very good channel on YouTube done by a Japanese language teach by the name of Nobita. in one of his videos that I recently watched today he made a very excellent point. He said "in order to learn the language you must first learn the culture" and I couldn't agree more. from what I've read about the Japanese culture the society is based around politeness and modesty and that the society is about fitting in more not standing out. please correct me if I'm wrong.

So for awhile I have been trying to get use to Japanese customs in my own house, like taking off shoes before I enter for example. That way when I plan to travel in a few years I'll already be use to it. I know there's a lot more to get use to, that is just one of them I'm doing.

What are some other customs I can practice ?
