Japan - the electronic country
#1
With broadband connections ten times faster than the US and 90% of the population owning mobile phones, it is not surprising that Japan has its own "Electronic Town".

The Japanese found a clever way to recompense the absence of land…..they started to develop and to defined brains possibilities! Nowadays almost everything is based on gadgets and almost all of them are invented in this small but strong country! For them it was the only way to show that not only the land can reach a country! And they did it perfectly! I tried to find an excuse for them or another way of living but I realized it’s not necessary! Maybe someone else it’s able to do it! Success! Smile Smile

    Tokyo is Japan's capital and the country's largest city.

Tokyo is also one of Japan's 47 prefectures, but is called a metropolis (to) rather than a prefecture (ken). The metropolis of Tokyo consists of 23 city wards (ku), 26 cities, 5 towns and 8 villages, including the Izu and Ogasawara Islands, several small Pacific Islands in the south of Japan's main island Honshu.

The 23 city wards (ku) are the center of Tokyo and make up about one third of the metropolis' area, while housing roughly eight of Tokyo's approximately twelve million residents.

Prior to 1868, Tokyo was known as Edo. A small castle town in the 16th century, Edo became Japan's political center in 1603 when Tokugawa Ieyasu established his feudal government there. A few decades later, Edo had grown into one of the world's most populous cities.

With the Meiji Restoration of 1868, the emperor and capital were moved from Kyoto to Edo, which was renamed Tokyo ("Eastern Capital"). Large parts of Tokyo were destroyed in the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 and in the air raids of 1945.

Japan is a very beautiful country as we all know and a very old tradition which is preserved from generation to generation and now. They also say it's about Japan "Rising Sun Country" because Japanese considered to belong to a solar kingdom of sun goddess Amatersu - Omikami , named Amatersu "Great Goddess" bright sky, was so beautiful that the gods have decided to instigate a ladder climb the sky, where to remain forever and it would shine forever belong to the earth. For those foreign call "Rising Sun Country". Japanese are very civilized with a great culture and a respect that can not express in words.

For Japanese population word "promise" is above to all, you will never meet a Japanese delays in a business meeting or in other problems, are very punctual. Workers are very, very good at all, for them work ranks first and then family.
Generally Japanese do not think only about tomorrow, they look ahead over five years, and put their question what I will do? or another example, if he does not work today put in discuss other problems, today I could not eat, not I could dress, and many others who they think.

They are so careful and capable that family and children to not miss anything. For them there are no words (not) family offers all comforts, without anyone to suffer. Are very sensitive, very sufletist, if you ask them their help will not refuse, never like to be lied to, someone to have them clear.
For them it is a pride to be called Japanese. But what impressed me very much not like to tell someone they are Chinese, I met many people who see how much suffering in their soul, without giving any explanation.

You will not meet a Japanese citizen to argue with someone or have to be angry, unless they have agreed not like something you would never say directly in front, will tell you that everything is OK but only they know what think in that time * smile as if nothing happened . Never a stranger from another country will not understand the true heart of a Japanese than they between them.
Time for a Japanese is very precious, do not like to lose a second without doing anything, all the time you hear the word (NAI gikan were Sugo isogashi) *** *** I have no time to lose ** * I am very busy *** For them there is a rule, that can make now, will not let for another day. They are very organized in all the areas of activity, that organization consists in mutual respect and confidence.
Life of a Japanese look to be a computer so without using the word stress, and every second time are minutes were scheduled, for those are called ** Computerized Life of a Japanese **
There are plenty to say about this country Japan and the true origin Japanese.

Religion in Japan is otherwise understood than in other parts of the world, at least different than in Christian countries. This interconnection living in a strange three broad categories of religion: shintoismul - Japanese domestic religion, Buddhism - religion of Indian origin who has made entry to Japan as Chinese influences, as well as Christianity represented a minor, but still present here in Japan. Nevertheless, if you ask which is a religion to some Japanese, there is a strong probability that it was your answer that has no religion.
In this article I will try to exemplify how these religions have made their way to Japan and how they interact in Japanese civilization and managed to coexist in relative peace. Although, as explained above can be said that there are only three significant religion in Japan, will add to this list a branch of Buddhism - the religion of zen, as rarely being considered and treated separately, fascinated me its philosophy in a certain period of my life, always wanting to discover more about the subject.

Shintoismul
Because it lacks some features considered by researchers needed a religion, there are still doubts whether or not to be considered as such. Basically, Shintou (read 'Shinto') is the name given to the Japanese credinteler indigenous, native rituals dedicated to the spirits, daily practices and traditional way of thinking.
Although Japanese are not constiozitate shintoisti, many specific customs are still practiced, in which I would like to enumerate some considered reference: visiting a shrine (Shrine) during New Year holidays, participation in festivals, prayers to the deities shintoiste for success in school exams, binucuvantarea children by gods in the festival Shichi-go-san (7-5-3) and more. It should be noted also that most weddings are celebrated under the tutelage of the religion. In general, the Japanese use of this belief for material success or success in life, and the Buddhist religion for happiness in the afterlife. At the beginning of history, each clan (Uji) was a deity governors and many of these deities is referred to as the yaoyoroz no Kami (in translation. 8 million of god).

Prayers to these gods, which often were personifications of nature, were dedicated to direct their tireless followers of this religion is to build altars to around centuries III and Iven. It was not until the 4th century, when Japan was unified under the Yamato clan (see Kofun period), shintou religion began to form a hierarchical structure with the gods and Emperor Yamato - the high priest in the lead, and other local deities continued hierarchy. Early Japanese history is that the efforts to legitimize the king's blood line as belonging to the gods, myths and legends about gods stirring mythology Yamato clan. Not formed any doctrine shintou truly up in the middle of the Heian period, when stipulated shintou idea that the gods were manifestations of Buddhist deities, thus linking indigenous beliefs Buddhist teachings.
During the medieval period and early modern period appeared a few sects which teach Shintou easily and independently. Of these, the most important is Ise Yosida and Fukkon Shintou. After the Meiji restoration, the government made an effort to support this religion, in order to increase the political power of the emperor. Local shrines and festivals have been revived to get in line with national doctrine. All this disappeared immediately after the Second World War, when state and religion have become two separate things and shintoismul became just another religion among many. Today there are more than 500 sects shintoiste, ad for a total of 7.15 million followers. Shintoiste practices are connected with local religious practices and family. Worship deities of harvest, trees, animals and all things close to home is still a part of local customs today.

Buddhism
This religion was officially introduced in Japan in 538en of the ancient Korean Paekche (for more information see Asuka period). However, various guests have introduced Buddhism to Japan much earlier, there are followers of this religion since the beginning V. Way Buddhism in India that followed - the native country of this religion and to Japan through China - the central state in that time. In Japan, it came just in time consolidation of Japanese rule, the new unified nation rather quickly adopting Buddhism and adapting it according to its needs. Since the end of the sixth century, Buddhism became the main faith of the imperial clan and other local leaders, is considered, at least in terms of nobility, national religion. Prince Shoutoku (574-622en), one of the most ardent followers of Buddhism, has initiated the construction of numerous temples, incepad with Houryuuji (the oldest wooden building in the world) and continuing with Koufukuji, Toudaiji, Yakushiji and Toushoudaiji.

This religious philosophy is first introduced in Japan, Buddhism had a strong cultural and philosophical impact. Architecture, metallurgy, medicine and even farming techniques were heavily influenced by Buddhist concepts. Many other streams of Buddhist teachings introduced in China continued to shape Japanese culture and subsequent periods, since the Heian period and ending with Edo period.
Political and social unrest, and increasing importance of caste soldiers during the Heian period, have led to an apocalyptic Buddhism, who founded a new periodic in the history of Buddhism in the Kamakura period would begin. This revival took place against the background of the Nichiren sect appearance, Joudo, Joudo Shinshuu and Zen (which is the currently most important Buddhist sects), which teach salvation of the soul by grace, concept different from the Buddhist philosophy of the nobility of the Nara period. These sects claimed that mere repetition of words Namu myou houren gekyou (I put my faith in the Lotus Sutra) or Namu butsu amide (I put my faith in Amida Buddha) or meditation if Zen sect, were enough to save someone's soul. With this popular look, new Buddhism spread rapidly and is reinforced in the Edo period dank system, introduced by Shogun and asking all families to register at one of many Buddhist temples in the country. Set up a system to remove Christianity, also helped the government keep track of people.

In 1994 there were 89.8 million of sutine as followers of Buddhism in Japan. Traditional sects are still strong in rural areas, but new sects founded after the Second World War, based on the philosophy of Nichiren have won many adherents in the urban environment as Sōka Gakkai sect says he would have about 8 million followers ; Rissu Kouseikai - 6.48 million and Reiyuukai, 3.07 million.
Concluding, we can say that the old and new Buddhist sects coexist in ecumenical harmony, preaching peace and actively helping refugees.
Zen
Zen practitioner seeking enlightenment through meditation and discipline and waiting for his salvation and all beings endowed with consciousness. Meditative posture of zazen ancient times was a Buddhist technique for achieving enlightenment. However, Zen sect, originally from China, was first to say that every element of life, food, sleeping, walking or rule could be applied to contemplate.

The monk Eisai brought the Buddhist Rinzai sect in China to Japan at the end of century XII, and Monk Dougen introduced what is now called the School of Buddhism Soutou immediately after that, the early Kamakura period. Trying a random zanen and kouan (paradoxical riddles that the issue raised by a master of meditation), Rinzai sect was extremely popular among high-ranking samurai and noblemen.
Some Rinzai temples still exist and are quite famous: Daitokuji and Nanzenji in Kyoto and Kamakura Kenchouji and Engakuji on. Probably one of the most famous formulations kouan is: What is the sound made by a single hand that cheer? Soutou sect, however, says that zazen meditation is enough to achieve enlightenment. Monk Daugen has no interest for power and fame, establishing monastery in the mountains, close to the prefecture of Fukui, far from the capital. Teach that anyone can achieve enlightenment, has attracted many followers among the lower class samurai and ordinary people. Another sect Zen school in China Oubaku was introduced much later, in the early Edo period. These scripts are read in Chinese sects and rites and scenery keeps color pure Chinese.

Zen had a strong influence on Japanese culture. Rinzai monks played an important role in introducing Chinese culture. Gozan Literature - writings priests of the five major Zen temples, have contributed greatly to the development of literature in Japan. Also, is remarkable and influential Zen painting, helping to produce masterpieces painted with ink and religious portraits.
Gardens with rocks and sand, considered typical in Japan are creations of Zen. Tea ceremony, too, has its origins in the introduction to Japan for tea powder by Eisai, of course brought from China. Famous tea ceremony masters, including Sen no Rikyuu remember, was a follower of Zen philosophy. Today, almost 3.32 million registered for Zen followers, at just under 4% of all followers of Buddhism in Japan. Of the approximately 77,000 Buddhist temples in Japan, 21,000 belong to the Zen sect, of which 14,700 sect Shoutou. The temple sponsors a variety of activities for propaganda, among which organize study camps on zen, zen philosophy introduction in the West, as well as in Europe.

Christianity
Christianity was brought to Japan by a group of missionaries led by Francis Xavier in 1549. This religion spread rapidly, due to open arms policy of the feudal lords who appreciated the fact that missionaries brought not only a new religion, but also new opportunities for trade. However, this period of rapid propagation of Christianity proved to be very brief, because in 1587, Toyotomi Hideyoshi suddenly banned the religion. After a census done a few years after this event is said to apoximativ 200,000 Japanese were Christians, but it is suspected that this amount was only half of the real. Suppression of Christianity has become more strict under the Tokugawa (Edo period), reaching a tragic event in 1637, when a Christian uprising at Shimabara was suppressed without mercy. Prohibition Christianity continued until 1873, when freedom of religion was reinstated by the Meiji government, but nevertheless flame almost extinguished Christianity in Japan, supported only by a few close grupulete. Including Catholics (448,000) and Protestants (527,000), Japanese Christians are currently number about 975,000. There are also some new religions waving the banner of Christianity and claiming around 550,000 followers. However, as a percentage of the population, are less than they were in the XVII century.
