              Japanese Street Life


Japanese city streets are
  very much like any
  American city streets.
  Busy, bustling, chaotic,
  and full of unique sights
  and sounds.
             Japanese Tea Fields

The Japanese love tea.
  They drink it with
  almost every meal.
  Here is an example of
  one of their tea fields.
  This is where they grow
  the tea plant. Look at
  how expansive the
  fields are.
             The Imperial Palace


The imperial palace is
  located in the center of
  Tokyo, the capital of
  Japan. The palace was
  destroyed during World
  War II, but built up
  again afterwards in the
  same style.
                Bamboo Forests

This bamboo forest is a
  magnificently big forest
  made entirely up of,
  yes, bamboo. It is a big
  tourist attraction.
  Bamboo itself is just a
  fast growing grass that
  has woody stems.
  They're just very tall
  grasses.
              Japanese Gardens
Gardens are very popular
  in Japan. Japanese
  garden designers use
  the essential elements
  in their designs: water,
  stone, and plants.
  Water is believed to be
  the life-giving force;
  stone to be the “bones”
  of the landscape; plants
  to be the tapestry of
  the four seasons.
                      Mount Fuji
Mount Fuji is the largest
  mountain in the Japanese
  Alps and all of Japan.
  Mount Fuji is 3776 meters.
  What most people don’t
  know is that Mount Fuji is
  actually a volcano. It’s last
  eruption occurred
  November 7, 1707. The
  highest temperature the top
  of Mount Fuji ever reaches
  is about 43oF in the late
  summer months. Usually
  the temperature is around
  18-20oF.
           Japanese Silk Screening
Silk screen paintings are
   a very popular form of
   artwork in Japan. It’s a
   very detailed art form.
   A lot of the time, when
   Japanese people have
   folding screens
   (dividers to separate
   rooms) in their home,
   they are silk screened.
   It’s a practical use of
   the beautiful art.

            Japanese Architecture

Japanese architecture is
  very stylized. Architects
  always think about
  pattern, design, surface
  texture, scale, proportion,
  and hierarchy. Most
  buildings in Japan, like
  the one to the right, are
  very grand and beautiful.
  A well-known Japanese
  architect trait are the
  sloped off roofs.
                Japanese Writing

Japanese writing is very
  complex, and very
  beautiful. During the
  4th century AD they
  developed their
  writing system,
  partially from their
  Chinese neighbors.
  Modern Japanese
  usually uses hiragana
  and katakana, but
  some kanji, too.
                   Sumo Wrestling
Sumo wrestling is a very
  popular Japanese
  sport. It takes place on
  a “dohyo”, an elevated
  ring. Originally sumo
  wrestling was created
  to entertain the Shinto
  gods. The rules are
  this: the first wrestler to
  touch the ground with
  anything but the
  bottoms of his feet or
  exits the ring before his
  opponent loses.
                 Japanese Cities

This is a photograph of
  the cityscape of Tokyo,
  Japan. Tokyo is the
  capital of Japan and it’s
  population is estimated
  to be over 12 million.
  That’s 10% of Japan’s
  population! Japan has
  many crowded, busy
  cities like Tokyo.
                       Sushi

Fish and rice are the two
  main ingredients in
  most Japanese diets.
  Japanese people have
  rice with practically
  every meal. Sushi is
  made with specially
  made rice, fish, and
  vegetables, and then
  rolled up in a seaweed
  wrap. Delicious!
                     Mochi


Another example of the
  Japanese diet. Mochi is
  a chewy patty that is
  entirely made up of
  rice!
