What is tradition

Tradition is the transmission of tangible or intangible lines such as ancient traditions, styles, tendencies, and bloodlines.[1], Faith, customs, institutions, ideas, scholarship, art, or the spiritual way that forms the center of them, which have been cultivated and passed down by peoples, societies, and organizations throughout their long history.[2]And so on.

In different fields, there are different traditions of different origins.

Created tradition

What is not originally "tradition" may spread as "tradition", and these are called "invented tradition", "invention of tradition", "fabrication of tradition", etc.[3][4][5][6].Eric HobsbawmとTerence RangerThe concept became widely known by Invented Tradition, edited by 1983.

(English edition)And someCultural anthropologistThe traditional events created by social and political demands are modern, justifying ethnic groups and classes.nationalismPointed out that it is closely related to, and tried to distinguish between what is truly traditional and what is not.[7].

The argument that the traditional events created by political demands are not authenticCultural anthropologyAs well,First ResidentResonated with activists in the rights restoration movement[7].. For example,HawaiiOf the indigenous movement(English edition)Criticizes the Invented Tradition as an attempt to undermine the power of the rights restoration movement, and is robbing cultural anthropologists, including Keezing, of Hawaii's sovereignty as well as the US government. Decided to be[7].

The following points can be mentioned as examples where tradition is a problem.

Example in Japan

Marital surname problem

Marriage surnameIs not a Japanese "tradition"[3][5]..The same surname for married couples was stipulated1875(Meiji8 years)Ordinary name for compulsory name for commonersIn the latter half of the Meiji era, well after the establishment of the national surname system by1898(Meiji 31).Prior to that, the married couple's surname was notified to the woman in 1876 (Meiji 9) except when inheriting the husband's house (when inheriting the husband's house, the name of the husband's house is referred to. )[8]..Furthermore, there is a study that before that, there were various name systems that were not limited to the same surname and different surnames of married couples.[9].

Japanese culture


Folk training related to shrines and Shinto

  • New YearNew YearToShotoIt is pointed out that it is not an old tradition in Japan, but a new event established in the middle of the Meiji era.[16].
  • (Kiyosu Sannomiya Hiyoshi Shrine priest, Professor of Japan-China College of Culture and Arts[17]) IsEmperorEnshrines only those who are allegedly dead forYasukuni ShrineIs not a tradition[18]..In Shinto, which is a polytheistic religion, it is not possible to distinguish between an enemy and an ally.[18].
  • Japanese eraIncorporates the Chinese system and is not a tradition unique to Japan[19].
  • Grand SumoThen because of the relationship with ShintoRing TheFemale ProhibitionHowever, it is not an old tradition.Also in the Muromachi period and the Edo periodWoman sumoThe record remains, and women were excluded from sumo wrestling at the end of the Meiji era due to modernization and the establishment of a family system.[20].

National character

It is not the traditional Japanese "tradition" that there is little garbage[3]..It has been pointed out that the fact that there is little garbage in Japan today is due to various postwar efforts, not "tradition."

Family view

  • In postwar Japan, there are opinions that the "traditional family" was broken, the family ties were weakened, and the educational ability of the family was weakened, but in reality, educational know-how etc. appeared in Japan. Around 1910, a new middle class such as wealthy people, officials and intellectuals began to focus on home education, but it was not popular among the general public, and children were generally left alone.[6][21].
  • It is sometimes said that "family ties are weakening" and "family is collapsing", but in fact, a 1958 government survey cited "family" as the "most important thing". Is only 12%, while in a 2013 survey it rose to 44%[6].
  • It is sometimes said that "large families of three generations were found everywhere in Japan in the past", but in a 1920 survey, 54% of all households had nuclear families, and 3% of families lived together for three or more generations. It wasn't too much.In some regions, it was rather taboo for multiple couples to live together.[6].
  • It is sometimes said that "housewives are a Japanese tradition", but until around 1970, the employment rate of Japanese women was higher than in Western countries, and it was during the high-growth period that housewives became popular. Diversity was erased in the process of enforcement and modernization of the Meiji Civil Code of 1898, emphasizing the Confucian and authoritative Chinese-like family image and Western gender division of labor.[6].

Evaluation of classical works

ManyoshuWas not traditionally highly evaluated, but in the Meiji era, the songs from the common people to the emperor were included, so value was created for the formation of a unified national view of "Japan".Yoshikazu ShinadaPoints out[22].

Example in England / Ireland

Tartan check・ SkirtEur-lex.europa.eu eur-lex.europa.euNot the "tradition" of[4]..Originally, tartan check was made in Scotland in the late 17th century.HighlandsIt has been pointed out that the people who lived in the area started as a "tradition".

Example in India

yogaSpeaking of unique poses (Asana) Is associated with the practice scene, but yoga centered on this pose practice is not an ancient Indian "tradition". Western style developed in the West from the late 19th century to the early 20th centurygymnasticsHowever, it was imported into modern India and completed.[23][24]..Most of the "yoga classes" currently held in Japan belong to this school.
