Japanese ArtJapanese art covers a wide range of art styles and media, including ancient pottery, sculpture in wood and bronze, ink painting on silk and paper and more recently manga, cartoon, along with a myriad of other types of works of art.
Japanese LanguageThe Japanese language has always played a significant role in Japanese culture. It is an agglutinative language and the sound inventory of Japanese is relatively small but has a lexically distinct pitch-accent system.
Japanese is written with a combination of three scripts: hiragana which were derived from the Chinese cursive script, katakana, which were derived as a shorthand from Chinese characters, and kanji, imported from China.
