Overview

The Japanese people have always seen themselves as a nation uniquely apart. Their exquisite art forms, elegant culture, military prowess, and technological precision have long been the envy of friend and foe alike. Today, even as Japan adapts to a rapidly changing world, its traditional culture and consensus-based philosophy have proved remarkably resilient. Culture Smart! Japan will broaden your perception and understanding of this complex, rich, and dynamic society. It provides practical tips and invaluable insights into people's attitudes and behaviour to help make your visit a more meaningful and successful experience.
