If shop staff bowing you, Should you do?

When you enter a shop or restaurant, staff will bow and say irrashaimase (welcome) as a sign of respect, but they don’t except a foreigner to bow back but instead a head nod can be use to bow back.

But if some one greeting you, you better also bow back .

So many situation having different manners…

Not too easy…
