To enculturate conversational interfaces it is indespensable to gain insights in culture specific differences of interaction patterns. Information found in the literature is often very general or more of an anecdotal character. In this paper we present a corpus of culture specific interaction patterns that was collected under standardized conditions in Germany and Japan and thus presents a rich source of data for developing interfaces that are tailored to specific cultures.
