Japanese Culture Meets Online Education

by Steve McCarty J apanese educators considering distance education as an alternative learning medium face many obstacles in what is traditionally a face-to-face social system. Periods of foreign borrowing have alternated with long periods of Japanese national isolationism, reflecting an ambivalence toward Western ways that still remains. Some Western culture had been adapted from the U.S. following its generous treatment of Japan after World War II, yet during the 1970s and '80s, Japan's remarkable economic success revived old notions of Western technology with an exclusively Japanese spirit. But the children for whom the post-War generation worked so hard now have grown too complacent to rebuild the economy from the unexpected recession of the 1990s. Enter the Internet, and Western assumptions will continue to be confounded as new media are adapted in terms of Japanese culture. Japan currently ranks second only to the U.S. in the number of Internet users, but very few of those more than 8 million people are communicating with the outside world. The Japanese-language Net is huge and has its own Web search engines for those who can read Chinese characters and have the appropriate software. Although writing English is not as difficult for the general public as speaking it, the language barrier will continue to be the most intransigent obstacle to using the Internet for outside communications.

History of Japanese Cuisine
What makes Japanese Dishes Japanese? The Relationship with Rice The Sense of Season Even the color of the chopstick counts We think of Japan as a single island, but it actually is four large islands and thousands of smaller ones. The volcanic and mountainous terrain boasts lush forests and heavy rainfall, much of it from monsoons, and the scarce farm land is used predominantly for rice. As one would expect, fish plays a major dietary role, both fresh and preserved. In the third century BC, Korea's already developed rice growing techniques were passed to the Japanese by the Yayoi, a migrating tribe that settled in Japan. Rice came to be used for more than eating, including paper, fuel, wine, building materials and animal feed. During the development of Japan, the Chinese contributed soy sauce, tea, chopsticks and imperial rule. Other influences arrived in Japan via Korea, including Buddhism, which, despite the pre-existing Shinto and Confucian religions, became the official religion in the sixth century. For the next 1200 years, meat was officially forbidden to the Japanese people, Then in the sixteenth century the Portuguese, followed by the Dutch, came looking to corner the trade market with Japan. The westerners introduced fried foods, which is why the breaded, fried tempura seem so very un-Japanese; while the Japanese enjoyed this type of cooking, it was not something that evolved naturally. Tobacco, sugar and corn were also brought by the traders.

Japan Introduction Back to Top Japan, constitutional monarchy in East Asia, comprising four large islands, as well as the Ryukyu Islands and more than 1,000 lesser adjacent islands. It is bounded on the north by the Sea of Okhotsk, on the east by the Pacific Ocean, on the south by the Pacific Ocean and the East China Sea, and on the west by the Korea Strait and the Sea of Japan (East Sea). In Japanese the country's name is Dai ("great") Nihon or Nippon ("origin of the Sun"), hence, Land of the Rising Sun. The Japanese islands extend in an irregular crescent from the island of Sakhalin (Russia) to the island of Formosa, or Taiwan. Japan proper consists of the large islands of Hokkaido, the northernmost; Honshu, the largest, called the mainland; Shikoku; and Kyushu, the southernmost. The combined area of these islands is about 362,000 sq km (140,000 sq mi). The total area of Japan is 377,750 sq km (145,850 sq mi). Tokyo is Japan's capital and largest city.
