Japanese culture

  • "BushidoIs not the "tradition" of samurai from the Edo period[5][13]..

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 efforts after World War II, not "tradition".[3]..The image that the Japanese are mild-mannered has been around since the present age, and until the early modern period, even the non-samurai class wore swords for fighting and self-defense because they could develop into fights from trivial matters.[19][20].

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 3 survey, 1920% of all households had nuclear families, and 54% of households 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].
