The traditional dress of Japan is a kimono. Kimonos are usually made of silk and have large sleeves that reach from the shoulders all the way down to the heels. They are usually worn on special occasions such as festivals, weddings, and graduation ceremonies. In everyday life, young people tend to wear t-shirts, jeans, polo shirts, and sweat pants.
A traditional Japanese meal consists of a serving of plain white rice, fish or meat, cooked vegetables, soup (usually miso soup), and pickled vegetables. They eat most of their meals with chopsticks instead of cutlery. At a Japanese restaurant you will be served with both though. The Japanese also eat food from Europe, North America and the other parts of Asia.
Map of Japan
In Japan homes are small but comfortable. In a Japanese family the mother plays a large roll in the lives of the children and spends a lot of time playing with them. Cleanliness is very important in Japan. Since the home is pretty small, they sleep on futons. They are pulled out of the cupboards at night and are put back the next morning. People do not wear shoes inside because it is a sign of respect to take them off outside. In Japan, it is common for three generations to live under the same roof. Bathing in Japan is a part of life. Every member of the family will bathe in the same water.
