The more you know about Japan culture the deeper you can see beneath the touristic surface of Tokyo.
A quick background for understanding the unique traditions of the culture of Japan.
As a Gaijin (foreigner) you are not expected to act according to the culture of Japan and nobody will be offended from your lack of Japanese social manners, but if you do make an effort it will be very much appreciated.
Life In Japanese Culture developed under the influence of a basic reality of Japan - it is a very crowded nation. Japanese must take into account other people in everyday life. In order to live peacefully in a crowd, there must be harmony which will make life more tolerable. Harmony is a very central theme in Japanese society. The harmony principle is also responsible for the quest to make things small, by making things tiny you leave more space for your neighbor. Dependence on others and Harmony are key values in the culture of Japan . Individualism is viewed negatively and associated with selfishness. Japanese children are taught to act harmoniously and cooperatively with others from the time they go to pre-school.

Japan Culture
One of the main highlights of your Japan tour should be getting to know Japanese culture. It is a unique and rich culture which will impress and entertain you at the same time. It is a hodgepodge of a variety of cultures forming one all its own. Japan exhibits a singular blend of Asian and Western cultures. The main features of Japan culture include: Ancient performing arts still in practice in Japan: Kabuki is Japanese classical theater dating back to the early 17th century. It has no female cast member as the female parts are played by male actors. Makeup is used with extravagant costumes for creating mood. Noh is the Japanese musical theater in its oldest form. It is the primary performing art of Japan’s traditional culture. Dialogue, singing, dance and musical accompaniment are used. The lead character wears a lacquered wooden mask. Kyogen is Japan’s comic theater which was originally staged between Noh performances. Now it is even performed on its own. Kuogen is synonymous with the ancient Japan culture. Bunraku’s popularity dates back to 16th century Japanese Puppet Theater. Music on a three stringed instrument (shamisen) and singing are used as accompaniments. Bunraku is considered the world’s finest puppet theater.

Japan has absorbed many ideas from other countries over the course of its history, including technology, customs, and forms of cultural expression, and has developed its unique culture while integrating these imports. The Japanese lifestyle today is a rich blend of Asian-influenced traditional culture and Western-influenced modern culture.
Traditional Culture
Traditional performing arts that continue to thrive in Japan today include kabuki, noh, kyogen, and bunraku.
Kabuki is a form of classical theater that evolved in the early seventeenth century. It is characterized by the rhythm of the lines spoken by the actors, extravagant costumes, flamboyant makeup ( kumadori ), and the use of mechanical devices to achieve special effects on stage. The makeup accentuates the personalities and moods of the characters. Most plays draw on medieval or Edo period themes, and all the actors, even those playing female roles, are men.

Our Discovery of Japan
And Its Culture
Our daughter was teaching English in Japan during 2001-2002, so my wife and I took advantage of this to visit her from Dec.22nd to Jan.2nd and stay in her home (in Katsutadai neighbourhood, Sakura City, Chiba Prefecture to be more precise). Since Jackie had become quite fluent in Japanese, and had adopted a Japanese lifestyle, this was a unique opportunity to really start to understand a people very different from the European backgrounds with which we are familiar.
I've divided our observations, with accompaning pictures, into the following sections: Enjoy!

ANo.1 In Japan, gifts are given on many occasions:
Oseibo and Ochugen
Twice a year, in December and in June, it is common for co-workers, friends and relatives to exchange gifts. The gifts are called Oseibo and Ochugen respectively. On average, they are worth about 5000 yen and may be food, alcohol, household items or something similar. The gift giving seasons coincide with company employees receiving a special bonus in addition to their monthly salaries.
Temiyage and Omiyage
In order to thank somebody, one often presents a gift (temiyage), such as Japanese sweets or sake. Similarly, when a Japanese person returns from a trip, he or she bring home souvenirs (omiyage) to friends, co-workers and relatives. In Japan, tourist sites are generally surrounded by many omiyage shops specializing in souvenir gifts, often in the form of beautifully wrapped and packaged foods.

Results In Second Thomas Blake Glover Aberdeen Asset Scholarship Award
Two students awarded Scholarships to Study In Japan This Summer The short list for the 2010 Thomas Blake Glover Aberdeen Asset Scholarship, which enables one Scottish student to study the Japanese language in Tokyo, was so strong that two scholarships have been awarded. Twenty four year old Carolyn Ruxton of Ellon in Aberdeenshire has been awarded the 2010 business scholarship to study at the International Christian University of Tokyo this summer. However, interview panelists were so impressed with 19 year old Glaswegian first year student Lloyd Conaghan that a second award was created to enable him to study at Yamaguchi University in Yamaguchi. Carolyn Ruxton (24) is currently studying for a Master of Architecture at Scott Sutherland School of Architecture at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen. Born in Dingwall, Carolyn moved to Ellon during her primary school years and later became deputy head girl at Ellon Academy. Carolyn has previously spent a year in Shenzhen in China on professional work experience in an architectural practice as part of her degree course. Glaswegian Lloyd Conaghan (19) was born in the city and is currently living at home with his parents while he completes his first year studying psychology, business and management and economic and social history. On top of his degree studies, Lloyd is teaching himself Japanese for up to four hours a day via a programme of self study.
