Sushi Art I decided to create this page to share some of my favorite things I love about Japan and the japanese culture; good food, delicate sushi, beautiful music and colorful cartoon characters. I hope to include a little of each in this page while providing some interesting sushi information and beautiful music by Japanese composer and musician Inada-no-Umahijiri, who graciously allowed to me use of his music for this page is a member of the Tokyo Shakuhachi Ensemble and plays the "shakuhachi" which is the japanese bamboo flute.
Turn your speaker on now for the ultimate experience Hikari-no-Haru - "The Light of Spring Sun" is the title of this composition - .
Hakari means "the light of the sun" and haru means "spring". Sushi Origin Sushi originated as a way of preserving funa -a type of fish. The fish was salted and allowed to mature on a bed of vinegar rice, after which the rice was discarded. Before long vinegar rice came to be eaten together with the fish and then other ingredients. Thus the word sushi was derived: the marriage of vinegar rice with other ingredients. Many different combinations of sushi and ways of serving them evolved. It is not surprising that most people mistaken or associate the word sushi to raw fish. It may be because many sushi varieties are prepared using some type of fish or seafood and the raw part just happens to stick in peoples mind. But actually, sashimi means "raw fish". Sushi is the marriage of vinegar rice to other ingredients.

Is Amae the Key to Understanding Japanese Culture?
Herman W Smith
UM-St. Louis Takako Nomi
UM-St. Louis *To be read at the Asia and Asian American Studies Section of the American Sociological Association for presentation at the Annual Meeting in San Francisco, August, 1998.
Doi asserts that European languages lack an equivalent word to amae. His argument is that the lack of an equivalent word implies lack of social recognition and need of feelings of dependency and the desire to be loved in the West. The closest Western equivalents might be the classical Greek concepts of eros, which assumes the child's immature need to be loved, versus agape, deriving from the mother's need to give unqualified love (Tillich, 1957).
Identity-Confirmation and Affect Control
When a human engages in culturally inappropriate behaviors, or with culturally inappropriate counter-identities, he or she experiences negative affect. Heise (1991) has empirically derived a measure he terms the Deflection Score, which measures the discomfort felt by a person who finds herself in an identity-disconfirming event. An event such as Mother Hugs Child is probably highly identity-confirming for both mother and child in any culture, leading to low deflections. Mother Scolds Child is likely to increase anxiety in both mother and child, but is typical enough that only mild increases in deflection should result. Mother Batters Child specifies a very high deflection score. The abnormality of such an event raises questions such as: What kind of mother would batter her child? What kind of child would cause a mother to child batter?

1. Japanese culture is structured around black and white norms for acceptable (harmony-producing) group behavior . People who don't function by these norms are viewed as outsiders who lack legitimate status. Black and white expectations of behavior produce equally clear cut conformity, resulting in high harmony and certainty of outcome Trust is earned through continuous conformity Harmony is the number one priority in Japanese interpersonal and social behavior taking priority over frankness and honesty. 3. The Japanese have few, if any, universal rules for behavior. Everything depends upon the context one is in : working with those with higher status, work with peers, meetings with mixed status participants, a client visit, after-hours drinking or communal bathing for men, etc. Appropriate/proper/acceptable Japanese behavior is determined by 4 key factors: A. The context of the behavior : the status of those interacting, the setting of the interaction, etc. B. Following the

Bioethics and Japanese Culture: Brain Death, Patients' Rights, and Cultural Factors - Masahiro Morioka International Research Center for Japanese Studies
3-2 Oeyama-cho, Goryo, Nishikyo-ku, Kyoto 610-11, JAPAN Eubios Journal of Asian and International Bioethics 1. Brain death and Japanese society The word "bioethics" appeared in the United States in the early 1970s, and spread to other advanced countries in the 1980s. Japan was no exception. Through powerful patients' rights movements and fierce debates on brain death in the 1980s, Japanese society has realized the importance of bioethical ideas and bioethical ways of thinking. Today, "informed consent" is a key concept among human rights activists in the field of medical care. At the same time, however, Japanese society seems to have showed reluctance to, for example, organ transplants from brain-dead donors In this paper, I will illustrate how the Japanese have responded to newly imported bioethical ideas by examining their discourse on brain death and patients' rights. Through the analysis the reader will encounter a typical Asian response to modern "Western" medicine and culture. First, let us take a brief look at the important events concerning brain death and transplantation in Japan. In 1967, the first heart transplant in the world from a comatose patient was performed in the Republic of South Africa. The next year, in 1968, a similar heart transplantation was performed at Sapporo Medical School by Professor Wada. The recipient patient lived for 83 days after transplantation. However, a citizens group accused Professor Wada of illegal human experimentation, and also of exercising dubious judgment with respect to the donor's (brain) death. After this incident, the phrase "heart transplantation" became taboo in Japanese society, and remained so for fifteen years.
