The Japanese have a long tradition of enjoying the calls of various Orthoptera, both in the wild and as caged pets (Lafcadio Hern, 1905, Exotics and Retrospectives, Little, Brown and Co., Boston). These customs have been popular with both the Japanese Court, which probably introduced some of the customs from China, and with the common people. Visiting places, known for the abundance and high quality of their singing insects, was one of the seasonal pleasures, such as cherry blossom and autumn leaf viewing. Although many of these customs have been lost or simplified with Japan's modernization, there remains a fondness for the "cries" of certain species of crickets (Gryllidae) and long-horned grasshoppers (Tettigonidae). The following illustrations and notes show various aspects of Japan's cricket culture. The cricket cage peddlar ", Kiyonaga, ca. late 1700s, (courtesy of The Art Institute of Chicago). Cricket sellers were members of an organized guild recognized by the checkerboard motif used on the cloth of their stands and kimonos. These mobile merchants sold diverse and beautifully crafted cages, including ones that resembled fans, boats and country cottages, to house the singing insects. The singing insects of commerce were both reared and collected from the wild. Cricket cage made of twigs, wire and the sheath of a bamboo shoot, ca. 1950 (courtesy of Kyushu-Tokai Univ.). This wire mesh type of cage was used for smaller crickets. The finely crafted cages of the past are now rarely made; most modern cages are clear plastic terrariums with ventilated tops. These terrariums are sold to keep and rear a few species of singing Orthoptera (mainly the bell insect, Homoeogryllus japonicus de Haan), which are also sold along with specially packaged bell insect food and soil in pet shops.

oshiro Mifune, the popular actor famed for his characterizations of quick-witted, taciturn samurai, never uttered a word about it. Akira Kurosawa, the well-known movie director, kept inscrutably mum. Not one of the many hundreds of samurai movies made in the past century even as much as hinted at it nanshoku, the
The samurai often called it bi-do,
Known also as wakashudo, highest lord. Indeed it has been said that it would never have been asked of a daimyo, In its key aspects, wakashudo (often abbreviated to shudo and synonymous with nanshoku, classical Greece . Like pederasty it was a relationship between an adult man and an adolescent male. Like it, it ended or transformed into platonic friendship as the youth came of age. Like pederasty, it was a pedagogic relationship fired by the energy of mutual erotic attraction. And in like fashion, it was not exclusive of the love of women. Samurai married, though usually later in life, just as the Greek warriors did. The Japanese as well as the Greeks equated the love between a man and a beardless youth with all that was best in human nature, seeing it at times as the path to such ideals, and at other times as the goal itself. Simonides, in a famous drinking song from the fifth century

93. Hemp & Japanese Culture Hemp japanese culture. from Brett Paulhus 314-4 HEMP culture IN japan japan, has long been a land of mystery to outsiders.
from Brett Paulhus
I thought that I would provide you with some historical information which involves the US occupation of Japan and the Post WW2 abolition of Industrial Hemp.
Circa Post WW2: The Dupont's and the Cotton Cartels of the time wanted Hemp off the map, it was a matter of strategic economic importance.
"Industrial hemp is just way too much of a ubiquitous product to be grown by the common man". "It just makes too much $cents$ for the average farmer" " It would displace pulp towns and the Cotton clowns" " It would create a paradigm shift" I know Jeff hates that term, but the big boys don't like change if it doesn't fall into their pockets!!!!!!!!!!1st
Just to give your readers an idea on how well regarded Hemp was in the Japanese culture:
I'll provide you with the following:
Hemp was traditionally used by Shinto priests, including the Japanese emperor himself who acts as a kind of chief priest of Shintoism. Several hemp fields are cultivated on Shikoku, one of the four main islands of Japan, to make ceremonial linen clothes for the Imperial family and for Shinto priests.
Hemp is also grown in some parts of Nagano prefecture by farmers with a hemp license and the fibre is used for bell ropes and noren (ritual curtains) for Shinto shrines as well as in sumo rituals.

Japanese Culture A Primer For Newcomers
Culture Shock 101
NO!! This is not another site on Japanese Zen and rock gardens, nor fantasizing about pretty *Important* : Japan has a lot of positive traits, and a lot of negative ones also. You'll find Japan captivating, bewildering, enchanting, enraging, humorous, frustrating, loose, uptight, accomodating, and anal-retentive sometimes all at the same time. However, the contents of this site center more on the negative aspects than the positive ones since these are what make life for westerners more difficult here. They are meant to show more of what culture shock is experienced and are * NOT * to be taken as an accounting of the number of good traits vs. the bad.
    Here are a few basic traits to remember

  • The Gaijin Complex

(from the series "Scribblings on the Wall of a Warehouse", c.1840's, by Kuniyoshi) Silence In Japan, silence is just as important as speaking. It is a designated moment to understand what has just been communicated. It is a moment to think and an opportunity to respond in a well thought out manner. In the West, silence is considered as an awkward moment and we try to mask this uncomfortable feeling with words. It is best not to try to break the silence as you might appear insincere. It would be better to relax and appear patient with your Japanese counterpart. You should be considering the value of what has been said. Silence or what is not said can be just as important as what is said. If one point is said, the listener is expected to understand the others points that are not said. You must read in between the lines or pick up on what has been implied. Often the subject of a sentence is not stated in so many words; it is just understood "who" or "what" is being referred to.

100. Language As A Window Into Japanese Culture
Language as a Window into japanese culture. by Steve McCarty. Professor, Kagawa Junior College, japan. Originally published by Bismarck
Language as a Window into Japanese Culture
by Steve McCarty
Professor, Kagawa Junior College, Japan
Originally published by Bismarck State College, North Dakota, in
an electronic literary magazine: Webgeist, (1), 12 January 1997.
"Notes from the Pacific Rim" column, second installment.
Language is much more than the semantic meanings of a lexicon.
This becomes clear when studying a foreign language and culture
quite contrasting to one's own. Looking at the Japanese language
from the vantage point of an English-speaking Western culture,
many aspects of language are set in vivid relief, which helps us
better understand language itself as well as our own culture.
This essay will therefore outline some basic aspects of any
language, with sometimes amusing examples where Japanese
differs strikingly from English. Everyday Japanese words that
have no equivalent in English will be featured for what they
disclose about Japanese culture. Then cross-cultural
communication problems will be touched upon, with the
addition of biculturalism to bilingualism suggested as a
challenging solution.
