Society & Culture

Japan is one of the world’s leading cultural superpowers, with some of the greatest contributions to film, art, fashion and international politics originating in the Japanese archipelago. However Japan’s unique society and culture is a product of centuries of isolation and separation from the international community, which means in practice that Japanese cultural norms and social mores are exceedingly peculiar and difficult for westerners to understand.  This page shall provide a brief overview of some of the peculiarities relating to Japanese society and culture, which will hopefully be of some assistance in increasing your understanding of and interest in investing in Japan.
