The Japanese culture is a multi-layered and complex system that has been developing within itself and forming new-layers for thousands of years.
Modern Japan consists of an evolved culture with influences from Asia, Europe and North America.

Pride of place and identification with local cultural patterns remain strong. Japanese people often attribute personality traits to people from particular regions, and regional identity often is expressed through local culinary specialties.
