Japanese culture has many aspects.

In this blog, we will focus on many of the ones you can’t see or have a natural influence. So less focus on anime, manga, and geisha.

People are the most important part to every culture but we’ll also try to focus on the priorities those people have and what they love the most within their own heritage and what they get excited about throughout the world.
