Japan is a country of immense cultural and historical significance. Its culture has been shaped by its geography, politics, religion, and language. Japan’s history stretches back to the earliest recorded times and spans many centuries. It is a country that has developed its own unique identity, which can be seen in the way it looks at life and interacts with the outside world.The traditional culture of Japan is closely linked to Shintoism and Buddhism. Shintoism was introduced to the Japanese archipelago in the 6th century BCE from China and Korea. Buddhism arrived in Japan from China and Korea in the 6th century CE. Both religions had an immense impact on Japanese culture with their beliefs about rituals, ceremonies, festivals, architecture, paintings, sculptures, music and literature having a major influence on how people lived their lives during these times.For centuries samurai warriors were at the heart of Japanese society as they were considered to be protectors of society’s honor and loyal servants to their rulers or lords known as daimyo’s or shogun’s . The samurai code of bushido (the way of warriors) governed a warrior’s actions which included bravery in battle but also loyalty to one’s lord even if it meant sacrificing one’s life for them . This code was not only limited to warriors but also extended into art forms such as Haiku poetry where a sense of honor was held paramount above all else . In modern times Japanese culture is still very much steeped in tradition while embracing new technology advances such as robotics that are now becoming commonplace within everyday life . Traditional sports such as Sumo wrestling , martial arts , Go (a board game) , archery , calligraphy , ikebana flower arranging are still practiced today along with modern innovations such as anime manga speech contests & cosplay costume play .
