Thank You!
The Japanese love flowers! Their country is blooming with Cherry Blossoms, Plum Blossoms, Wisteria, Lavender and even Bamboo! Japan is also filled with forests and streams. Animals live in Japan too! There are foxes, bears, racoons, deer, antelope and so much more! There are 160 different types of mammals, 700 species of birds, and 32,000 species of insects. Japan is full of flora and fauna!

Japan is a very interesting place and has lots of landmarks! The first one is the Hiroshima Peace Park!Before the bomb was dropped, the Peace Park was the heart of the city. That was the reason the pilot dropped the bomb there. Four years after the bomb was dropped, it was decided that the Peace Park would not be redeveloped, but instead, be a Peace Memorial Facility. Next is the Jigokudani Monkey Park! This is a place where snow monkeys bathe in the hot springs. It is located in the forests of Jigokudani valley. Then, it's Mount Fuji! Mount Fuji is the highest mountain and volcano in Japan, measuring 3776m. It is a popular tourist attraction for people who like hiking.
Japan is a very well-developed country and the Japanese are very smart too! They have popular brands, such as Toyota, Sony, Fujifilm and Panasonic. The Japanese are great at making goods(especially machinery.) and import raw materials. There are lots of oceans in Japan, so Japanese people go fishing. Japanese people have invented lots of useful things that Australia hasn't made yet. Those include washlets, robots and so much more!

Japanese people sure like dressing up! Their traditional dress is the kimono. It is mostly made out of silk and is now worn on special occasions. They usually just wear normal t-shirts and shorts on normal days, though.The Japanese also have fancy houses, apart from our three-storey houses! The first room you would see will be the entryway. You are permitted to put your shoes on the floor, point them to the outside and put on slippers for indoor use. Next is the kitchen. There is usually a refrigerator and microwave in this room. After that is the Washitsu. It is a traditional japanese room and the floor is covered with tatami mats. Then, it's the bathroom. It usually has a shower and bath in this room. Next, is the toilet. The toilet is always in a separate room.
Clothing and Housing
Japanese food sure is yummy! Their most important type of food is rice. Since it is the most important food source to the Japanese, meals are also called the Japanese version of rice(which is gohan). Japanese people mostly use chopsticks to eat their meals. Today, Japanese people eat food from all over the world, including pasta, bread, meat, fish, vegetables and lots more that we eat in Australia too! There are two different types of Japanese cultures. They are the traditional culture and the modern culture. The traditional culture, include kabuki and bunraku. Kabuki is a type of classical theatre that include costumes, lines, makeup and special effects. Bunraku is a type of puppet theatre that include music played on a three stringed instrument(called a shamisen). There are also other Japanese arts, such as the tea ceremony. The tea ceremony is when people prepare green tea for either themselves, or other people. There is also flower art, which is when you decorate flowers and give it to Buddha as offerings. Modern culture include different things from traditional culture, like concerts and animated shows. The concerts are held all over Japan. Shows like Pokemon, Astro Boy and a whole lot more, are Japanese productions. They are loved from all over the world. Including me!

There are three types of characters used to write japanese. Even though japanese is a totally different language to chinese, japanese characters originated from the ancient chinese. It was said to be made thousands of years ago. These characters are called kanji and first looked like pictures. Over the years, the pictures changed into words or parts of words. People now regularly use about 2000 kanji-1000 in primary school and 1000 in high school.

The school system for japanese students is primary school, middle school, high school and university(primary school 6 years, middle school 3 years, high school 3 years and university 4 years). Primary and middle school is compulsory, but you don't need to go to high school or university if you don't want to. Only 98% of japanese children go to high school and university. Children have to take tests and exams to pass to high school and university. There are about 30-40 children in a normal class in primary school. The subjects they learn are Japanese, mathematics, science, social studies, music, art, physical education and home economics. They also teach english at schools too. Children also learn some traditional japanese arts, like shodo and haiku. Shodo is dipping a brush in ink and using it to write kanji in an artsy style. Haiku is a type of poetry using a short verse of 17 syllables divided into three lines. The first line has 5 syllables, second line has 7 syllables and third line has 5 syllables.
