MEANING OF JAPANESE FLAG

The Japanese flag is called Hinomaru, which means


"circle of the sun.“

This flag has been used for over a thousand years,


and no one knows who designed it or when. It was
officially adopted as the flag of Imperial Japan on
January 27, 1870.
SOCIETY
DEMOGRAPHY
During the last 150 years of industrialization and economic
development, the population has grown from around thirty
million to its present size.

The country is heavily urbanized, and urban areas have


extremely high population densities.
LINGUISTIC AFFILIATION
The official and predominant language is Japanese
(Nihongo).

Although spoken and written forms of Japanese are largely


standardized throughout the nation, there are several
linguistically distinctive ethnic and regional dialects.
RURAL LIFE
Rural areas, because of their growing depopulation, find it
difficult to educate children in each community because
there simply aren't enough children in many small towns to
justify maintaining a school.

The population of rural areas is increasingly an aged


population, which requires special social services,
particularly relating to medicine.
FOOD
Historically, the Japanese avoided meat, but with the
modernization of Japan in the 1880s, meat-based dishes such
as “tonkatsu” became common.
Japanese cuisine, particularly sushi, has become popular
throughout the world.
A characteristic of traditional Japanese food is the sparing use
of red meat, oils and fats, and dairy products
CLOTHING
THERE ARE TYPICALLY TWO TYPES OF CLOTHING THAT THE JAPANESE WEAR: THE JAPANESE CLOTHING ,
SUCH AS KIMONOS, AND NORMAL CLOTHING
RELIGION
Shinto and Buddhism are Japan's two major religions. Shinto is as old
as the Japanese culture, while Buddhism was imported from the 6th
century.
Religion does not play a big role in the everyday life of most
Japanese people today. The average person typically follows the
religious rituals at ceremonies like birth, weddings and funerals.
EDUCATION
SCHOOL SYSTEM
School year starts in April and ends in March.
Special schools are available for physically/mentally-challenged children
who may have difficulty in studying at general schools.
School lunch is provided on a standardized menu, and is eaten in the
classroom.
Every class is responsible for cleaning its own classroom and two other
places in the school.
