  • 2. Religion
    Shinto believers believe in Kami (a spirit or god). Shin means (in Japanese) the word for god. So Shinto means “the way of the god.” Shinto was japans main religion before world war 2. Most of the customs are still done in Japan now, but not as often as supposed to, and normal not religiously.
    (The Shinto symbol)
    Buddhism is supposed to teach people how to reduce their suffering and understand themself better. Some see it as a religion and others see it as a philosophy and the rest see it as a way of finding reality.

  • 5. Japanese Games
    Japanese Children’s games:
    Or “lucky laugh” (in English)
    Fukuwari is a game played by Japanese children. It is kind of a “pin the tale on the donkey” but you have to pin the mans eye’s, nose and mouth onto his head. Hen they look at what he looks like and laugh at the weird looking face.
    Or “tag”
    Onigokko is basically the Japanese version of tag, they choose someone to be “it” then the it person gives them an amount of time off, than he chases them. The person that is tagged is then the “it” person and hey count and the game starts again.
    Does not translate to English
    Hanetsuki is sort of a badminton played with no net and rectangular wooden paddles. It is also played with a brightly coloured shuttle cock. It is normally played by girls on new years eve. The main idea is that the longer you keep it in the air the better mosquito protection you will have in the next year.
