Japanese Culture

What does Japanese culture mean to you? For some, it is manga and anime and perhaps J-Pop, the most recent manifestations of Japan’s popular culture. In the broadest sense, however, it can include any aspect of everyday life. So we may look at food, the Japanese counting system, cinema, board and card games and much more.

No prior knowledge of the Japanese language is necessary.
