Transcript of Japanese Culture Project

By Katie and Marie-Claire Japanese Culture Catholicism was introduced to the Japanese when St.Francis Xavier arrived in Kagoshima city. He stayed in Japan for two whole years and converted the book (gospel) of Matthew, the Apostles' Creed, cardinal church teachings, and various prayers into Japanese with the help of a native Japanese convent named Anjiro (Yajiro). Catholicism Religions in Japan
- Shinto (60%)
- Buddhism (35%)
- Other (5%)

Christianity is at about 0.7% in the 'Other' section Religions Geography Food Japan has many traditions and celebrations like festivals, ceremonies, annual events. Traditions and Celebrations Clothing Art Music Architecture Language Politics References Thanks for Listening! There are many varieties of food in Japan. One popular dish is ramen. It is like a soup, but varies by what you put in it.

Another popular Japanese dish is sushi. Like the
ramen, it varies by what you use.

A third popular dish is fried rice. You can just have your rice in the dish or you can add all kinds of
different ingredients to it, it all depends
on what you like to

As you can see in the pictures, many Japanese
people eat by using chopsticks. The origin of chopsticks
is unknown, and have been is use for hundreds of years. Ramen pic Oct 3

There are no religious restrictions on how to dress because religion doesn't play much part in their everyday life, but on special occasions some women choose to wear a kimono and some men choose to wear a hakama.

Through the years Japan has come up with many unique fashions trends and styles such as
Gyaru
Onii-kei lolita
Stlye Decora
Stlye Japanese
Street wear gothic lolita
Harajuku fashion
Punk
Sweet lolita
Visual kei Japanese have many styles of music such as:
Modern Japanese style music;
J-pop
J-rock
Visual Kei (Rock)
J-synth
Ska
Punk
Traditional Japanese music
Gagaku
Noh
Shakuhachi, Shamisen, and Koto
But one genre of music that is very unique is Enka. Enka is quite popular amonst elders, but lately it has begun to become more popular due to the appearance of new young Enka singers. Enka singers sing in a particular way with a 'warble' and they often wear traditional clothing when on stage. The lyrics of this music is mostly of "tragic love" and is often written from the veiw of a woman, mentioning her grudge, regret and lingering affection. Traditional music is also quite popular these are the different traditional Japanese instruments:
Shamisen
Koto
Shakuhachi
Biwa These styles may look strange to many but are actually quite popular among the Japanese, and even some other people around the world. There are 3 main alphabets in the Japanese language:
- Hiragana
- Katakana
- Kanji こんにちはこんにちは Hiragana Chart St. Francis Xavier was able to turn some of the Japanese to this faith while he was visiting Kyoto. In those few years he had estimated that he had about 800 Japanese people turn to this faith. They also became close to influential men such as the Buddhist monk Ninijitsu and Shimazu Takahisa, Lord of sStsuma, and Otomo Yoshishige, Lord of Bungo who later had changed to Xavier's faith.

Japan Location: 35.41°N and 135.83°E
East of China and Korea

Population: 127,368,000 (July 2011)
Capital: Tokyo
Climate: Like Canada, Japan has 4 seasons. Humid summers and mild winters. Honshu Hokkaido Shikoku Kyushu Japanese houses are built with thin walls because of the mild climate and have over laping, slanted and slightly curved roofs because there is a lot of rain fall especially during the early summer. Timber is a traditional building material for the Japanese houses. This makes the buildings airy, which is a relief to the humid summer months. Religion doesn't play a big role in the everyday life for people today. An average person follows religious rituals at ceremonies like birth, weddings, and funerals. They may also visit a shrine or temple on New Year's and participate at local festivals, which most which have a religious background. The top 10 famous structures in Japan are:

Akashi Kaikyo Bridge(1)
