Are there tips to doing the Japanese bow?

For the life of me I can’t bow low enough. And then I feel rude because the other person is bowing so much lower than me.

    If they are bowing lower than you then it's on purpose. For some reason they are giving respect.

    If you are not Japanese, they don't expect you to know how to bow correctly.  Just do the best you can.
