Pros and Cons of Shinkansen 新幹線

thread
Pros and Cons o... Pros and Cons o... I was doing 160 mph ... That i... I was doing 160 mph ... That is fast.
Connecting Tokyo and Osaka (500 km or 320miles) in about 2 and half hours, Shinkansen is a very reliable and fast and comfortable transpiration even when you compare it to the airlines. Jets fly from Tokyo to Osaka in about 50 minutes, but you need to take train, bus or taxi to get to the downtown area whereas Shinkansen gets you to the middle of the city. That is all good.

But there is one drawback I have to mention. Because Shinkansen has no competitor, the price is fixed and it is rather high. Unless you buy airline ticket at the last minute, airlines offer cheaper transportation between Tokyo and Osaka.

One more thing. Shinkansen have not accident since it started operation back in 1964. That is over 53 years without an accident.

A Different Look at Japanese Language and Culture

thread
A Different Look at Japanese L...
A Different Look at Japanese Language and Culture

It is a fact that learning a foreign language is very challenging. Many learners attest that Japanese is of the languages that give English speakers a hard time. There are many reasons to learn the Japanese language, personally and professionally. For one thing, Japan has the world's second largest economy. It is a gateway to other cultures and languages in Asia. Knowing Japanese can provide several business opportunities. This is also a reason why Japanese language translation services are in high demand. As Mr. Sean Hopwood of Day Translations once mentioned, "The little nuances in words are beautiful, in much the same way that cultural beliefs and nuances make people unique, thus language and culture should be respected, celebrated and preserved."

It's a good thing that there are some excellent resources online to augment formal Japanese lessons. A lot of people also suggest that to learn the language faster, it is better to immerse oneself into Japanese culture. They call it as being ''culturally fluent.'' Moreover, the learners must keep in mind the reason why they decided to learn Japanese.

The Japanese language and culture are both fascinating, intriguing and challenging, so let's learn some things about these that you may or may not know.

Japanese culture

The culture of Japan is multifaceted and steeped in traditions that span thousands of years. Yet, Japan is also a country where you will find the latest fashions, changing fads and innovations in technology that are far advanced than other countries.

People

Japan has always been considered as a homogenous society and was practically isolated for thousands of year. The isolation stopped in the mid-18th century. Although it seems that the Japanese people are one huge ethnic group, there are other ethnic minorities in Japan, which for centuries were completely ignored, such as the Ainu people residing in Hokkaido, which was colonized in the 19th century by Japan. There is also the Ryukyukan people, who are indigenous in southern Okinawa.

Immigration and the influx of foreign workers are factors that contribute to the increase in Japan's population, which is now about 126.3 million. Japan's census system does not recognize its citizens with mixed heritage that they call ''harufu.'' About 750,000 Japanese of mixed heritage live around Japan, and around 1.5 million are permanent residents who are foreigners.

Major ethnic groups in Japan come from Brazil, the Philippines, China and Korea. In fact, about 5% to 10% of the population is made up of Brazilians of Japanese descent. Many of them came to the country to work but some have gone back to Brazil.

Majority of the population live in the country's capital, Tokyo. The second most populated area is Osaka-Kobe, followed by Nagoya, Kitakysuhu-Fukuoka, Shizouka-Hamamatsu and Sapporo.

The Japanese are extremely fond of matsuri or festivals, and they do have plenty because of their traditional religions, Shintoism and Buddhism. There are quite a number of Christian festivals as well.

Food

It is also a paradise for foodies. There is no doubt that Japanese food is widely popular, from the traditional Japanese fare to meibutsu or regional delights to fusion cuisine. Many people have tried Japanese sushi and sashimi, ramen, tempura, shabu, yakitori miso soup, okonomiyaki, kare raisu (curry rice), udon, soba, onigiri and desserts such as the too-good-to-eat mochi, namagashi, higashi and the old-time Japanese favorite, castella.

When it comes to food, trust the Japanese to provide you with such a variety of entrees that you'll end up popping shirt and pants buttons. We have not mentioned what Japanese chefs and cooks can do to fish, poultry, meat and seafood. Desserts and sweets in Japan are some of the most insanely creative as well. Funny thing is, despite their wide variety of culinary delights, the Japanese favors KFC chicken as their main dish for Christmas Eve.

Customs

One of the most important things a visitor to Japan needs to learn is the art of bowing. A bow is done when one says hello, sorry, thank you or goodbye. Bowing is a sign of greeting, respect, gratitude and remorse. But there are some instances when you do not need to bow, such as when restaurant or shop employees bow to you after shouting irrashaimase that means, ''Welcome.'' You can however acknowledge them with a casual head nod.

Japan has several forms of bowing. A 45-degree bow or saikeirei is to either show the highest form of respect or offer a very sincere apology. A 30-degree bow, which is called keirei, is showing respect to superiors and other people, and the type of bow that visitors should know and use, especially when conducting business. .

The type of bow that visitors will often use is the eshaku or the 15-degree bow that should be given to people you meet for the first time. But do not worry, as Japanese are now very familiar with handshakes.

Footwear is traditionally removed before a person enters one's home. It's a custom that started because people did not want to spread dirt on tatami-covered floors where they eat, sit and sleep. The tradition was carried over the years for the same reason and mostly as a sign of respect. While you may not be entering many homes while visiting Japan as a tourist, there are establishments where you have to remove your shoes.

Socially, you show your respect to people you talk with or refer to by adding –san to their last name. So instead of saying Mr. or Mrs. Yamada, you'd say, Yamada-san. It is not applicable to you when you are the speaker and should use your name as is.

When eating, you'll find the Japanese putting their hands together and saying Itadakimasu that means, "I humbly receive" and say "Thank you for the meal" by saying Gochiso sama deshita.

Although you may not be too proficient is using chopsticks, do not stick them into a bowl of rice or pass food around using chopsticks because the actions are relevant to a funeral ceremony in Japan. Rice is food that the Japanese are very proud of and should not be doused with soy sauce. Moreover, avoid walking while eating when you are outside in a public place.

However, you should remember that tipping is not required in Japan as the Japanese strive you give you the best service possible and they are very proud of their jobs. They think that they are not doing their job or their service is lacking when they are given tips.

Language

Language experts say that it is not difficult to learn Japanese, which is contrary to what language learners say. Technically, it is difficult for an English speaker to learn the language because there are almost no similarities as English and Japanese belong to different language families.

Teachers explain that some students say that Japanese is difficult because Japanese people speak very fast. This is a fact but that is because the pronunciation of Japanese words is simple. Likewise there are only five vowels and few consonants. However, it is very rare to have one syllable words in Japanese, and the language do have longer words because it's to compensate for the fewer sound elements. All Japanese verbs are free from gender distinctions. The language only has two irregular verbs, suru or ''do'' and kuru or ''come.''

Most learners will balk at written Japanese, because the characters have different formats. The writing system is Kanji and learners have to deal with two alphabet sets, Katakana and Hiragana. Kanji is the set of Japanese-adapted Chinese characters. This is used in combination with hiragana, which is a syllabary used for naturalized or native Japanese grammatical and word elements and katakana, the other syllabic pair which is used mainly for loan words or gairaigo. The simplest way to recognize the difference is that hiragana characters have smoother and rounder strokes whereas katakana characters are straight and have sharp corners.

Here are some tips to understand the Japanese writing system:

Kanji represents a concept, so kuruma or ''car'' is written as 車.

Katakana, which is mainly used for loan words, such as テレビ (terebi) or television, is also used for foreign personal names, foreign places and names of countries. Moreover, katakana is used for words that represent sounds (onomatopoeia), scientific and technical names, transcription of names of Japanese companies, like トヨタ for Toyota and スズキ (Suzuki) and used for emphasis on advertisements and signs. It can be taken as using ''italics'' to emphasize certain words.

Hiragana is used for writing phonetically and represents sounds, grammatical modifiers and particles and to alter the pronunciation, tense and add more meaning. When writing ''kuruma'' in hiragana, you can use the sounds of ku, ru and ma, or くるま.

Another example is miru, a Japanese verb meaning ''see,'' which is written as 見る.It is a combination of the kanji mi and the hiragana ru. The past tense is ''saw'' or mita. When writing this, the kanji character stays while the hiragana part is replaced with ta or た

To explain further, while it is possible to write some words in hiragana or katakana, using kanji is to honor the tradition and show respect for it because it was developed before the other two.

It is also because the language itself is limited in the number of sounds. It does not have an ''L'' sound and it is not often that consonants go together well. Also, each Japanese syllable has to end with an ''N'' or a vowel.

Without kanji, many homonyms would be confusing. For example, koutai can mean ''retreat'' (後退),''antibody'' (抗体) or ''replacement'' (交代). Combining kanji with hiragana helps in making the clarification.

The Japanese writing system normally does not put spaces between different words, thus combining kanji with katakana and/or hiragana allows the reader to spot the breaks. As an example:

Watashi ha kuruma wo mita in English means, ''I saw the car.'' When written in Japanese, it looks like this: 私は車を見た

Breaking it down, you'll get:
私は – for Watashi (I) and ha, which is the subject marker
車を – for kuruma (car) and wo, the object marker
見た – mi is for the verb (see) while ta indicates that it's in the past tense

These examples alone might trigger you to put more effort in learning the Japanese language. As you continue learning, you're bound to discover more.

There is beauty in any language and translation makes you appreciate a language better. However, some words in any language do not have a direct translation in English. Here are some examples in Japanese.

Komorebi – the effect of scattered and dappled light when sunlight shines through leaves, branches and trunks of trees
Bakku-shan – this is a combination of the English word ''back'' and the German ''schoen'' that means beautiful. It is used to describe a woman whose back looks beautiful which turns out to be the revers when the woman turns around.
Tsundoku – means leaving books unread after purchase
Kyoikumama – refers to a mother who pushes her children to achieve academic excellence
Age-otori – a Japanese term to describe that someone looks worse after getting a haircut
Wabi-Sabi – the acceptance that it is natural for things to be incomplete, imperfect and beauty is transient
Shinrinyoku – the description of enjoying a walk through the forest and soaking in all the green light
Kogarashi – the withering winds at the onset of winter that blow off the remaining leave on trees
Mono no aware – sensitivity or sadness you feel when you realize that life is brief and momentary
Otsukaresamadesu – a greeting Japanese use when arriving to work, during the day and when leaving the office. It's telling your colleagues that ''work has been tough and you must be feeling tired.''
Natsukashii – an adjective that describes a sense of nostalgia for something beautiful that happened in the past.
Mottainai – an expression of regret over waste, such was wasting your time.
Shoganai – an expression or acceptance of something that is beyond your control. The closest explanation is the English expression, ''it cannot be helped.'' It is a mentality that can be described as both fatalistic and realistic, which may explain why Japanese people deal with natural disasters without too much complain.

In the present context of global business, it pays to learn a foreign language. Japanese is an important language in the world and can open many doors for you. Be culturally fluent in Japanese culture, which in itself is interesting but also for you to wholeheartedly embrace its fascinating language.
