Welcome to The Nihon Sun

Oct 30th, 2008 | By | Category: Featured Articles

No matter where you are, or what you think about Japan, one thing can be said with certainty – people are watching Japan – they want to understand it and they want to emulate the best it has to offer. Today it is fashionable to pick up sushi at a 7-11 in California, to read manga in Manchester, or to buy the latest from Hello Kitty in Hawaii.

But Japan is often portrayed as a destination for sightseeing and there is a lot more to this county than temples, shrines, sumo and sushi.   While there are, without a doubt, beautiful and breathtaking sights to behold in Japan, the centuries of history and tradition that they are built upon runs much deeper than any snapshot can portray.  The Japanese culture is one of the oldest in the world and one that has taken influences from other countries like China, India and Korea and then moved on to influence western and European cultures with its food, technology and fashion, to name a few.
