Japan, with the third-largest economy in the world, is an island where ancient wisdom embraces cutting-edge innovation. High-rises exist next to historical structures, temples, and shrines, and a deep relationship between past and future is an integral part of culture and society. More than 200 years of isolationism (Sakoku), a period when trade and relations between Japan were severely limited, have significantly contributed to its cultural traditions such as haiku poetry, kabuki drama, tea ceremony, cultivation of bonsai trees, and more.
Japan has a highly developed and sophisticated market, characterized by advanced industries such as automotive, electronics, and machinery. Japan is also known for its precision engineering, high-quality manufacturing, and cutting-edge research and development. Japan is also at the forefront of advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals. From providing financial assistance for supporting SDG-related projects in developing countries to leveraging its technological advancement in areas such as renewable energy, clean technology, and disaster management, Japan has made significant contributions to support the achievement of goals.
Japan’s capital city, Tokyo, is the most populous city in the world. Despite that, you will find Tokyo spotless and litter-free. The city’s pristine cleanliness is a testament to its remarkable commitment to cleanliness and the strong cultural values in its society.
Japan has a rich and vibrant pop culture that has been gaining popularity worldwide. Japanese animation (anime), comic books (Manga), and J-Pop and J-Rock have become global phenomena. Japan’s breathtaking beauty, such as cherry blossom-filled parks or historic temples, captivates the senses of locals and visitors alike. However, the beauty of Japan resides not only in its natural landscapes but also in its people, who exemplify grace, humility, and an unwavering commitment to excellence.
