Japanese Culture

A Closer Look

On this site we will introduce a few unique traditions of Japan and hopefully answer any questions you might have about Japanese Culture. It is also important for us here at to demystify Japan. Movies and mass media portray a very strict image of Japan and Asia in general. It may seem that one incorrect gesture or a miscalculation in the angle of your bow will dishonor your family for generations to come. This is far from the truth.

Just like you and me!

It is important to know that the Japanese are just like you and me. They are not the serious "bound to protocol" people that we are led to believe. Although there are certain DO and DON'TS in Japan nothing is so bad that you will be deported.
