Japan is one of the world’s leading cultural superpowers, with some of the greatest contributions to animated film, art, fashion. However, Japan’s unique society and culture is both a product of centuries of isolation and separation from the international community and a result of a specific selection of Western and modern aspects since the 19th century onward. This means in practice that Japanese cultural norms and social mores are exceedingly characteristically Japanese and difficult for Westerners to understand. This page shall provide a brief overview of some of the specific characteristics relating to Japanese society and culture, which will hopefully be of some assistance in increasing your understanding of and interest in investing in Japan.
