National Identity

Japanese preserves their culture and their uniqueness to the world. In the beginning, the Japanese people are by natural means are isolated to all other nations and cultures in the world. But in the later, they have self-imposed their isolation up to now. Japan is known in securing the welfare the groups and not by individual welfare. This means that a Japanese individual is working for sake of the family, the local community, the corporation, and the country but not for himself/herself.
Nihongo is the the distict language of Japanese with distinct characters. Among their culture is wearing of kimono especially during traditional Shinto wedding. Among their famous tradition is Geisha, where Japanese entertainers have many myths about their lifestyle and history. Koto is a famous traditional musical instrument while Samurai were warriors of pre-industrial Japan. Japanese maintain their pride and distinctiveness that is why they discourage marrying their children with other nationalities. Further, only a handful Southeast Asians can be allowed to immigrate in Japan.
On the other hand, China is known for The Great Wall of China and Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism. Mei and Zhenzhi (2007) cited that, ‘red lanterns, dragon dancing, kung fu, Peking opera costumes, Chinese musical instruments, Oriental women in modified changshan, etc. are among their symbols’. Mandarin and their characters are less complicated than Japanese but are more complicated than Korean characters.

Chinese are popular for their zodiac with animal characters and Feng sui. Mei and Zhenzhi (2007) added the traditional holidays like the Chinese New Year, Lantern Festival, Dragon Boat Festival, and Moon Festival. The Chinese New Year is also different from the rest which is determined by the Chinese lunar-solar calendar. Chinese calendar divides a year into twelve month of 30 or 29 days. Architecture, customs, values, family structure, and cuisine are very unique.
