Whether you’re in the fields of business, engineering, manufacturing, research, economics, or politics, chances are you will be competing with, if not working for, a Japanese entity.

Japanese is a gateway to other Asian languages and cultures.

Throughout its history, Japan has been shaped by the influence of Asia’s great civilizations: India, China, and Korea. While the cultures of these Asian countries do differ, Asian cultures together share many similarities that differentiate them from Western ways and norms. So a study of Japanese can open your perspective on the values that other Asian nations share with Japan, including religious beliefs, ethics, and aesthetics. A familiarity with Asian cultures also allows you to step outside the culture you live in and see it from a fresh, new perspective.


The Japanese are innovators.

Considering that Japan is a geographically isolated island nation that is densely populated and poor in natural resources, the strength of the Japanese economy seems even more impressive. The Japanese have relied on their creativity and scientific know-how to succeed not only economically but also in ecology- and effiency-oriented ways. The Japanese are known as high-tech leaders in fields such as optical media, semiconductor manufacturing, industrial robotics, and fermentation processes. Their drive for innovation has made the Japanese the world’s leaders in patent filings, with 420,000 applications annually.

Japanese cultural exports are exploding.

From anime to sushi bars, karaoke to manga, bonsai to origami, Japanese culture has become part of international culture. Learning the language will give you direct access to Japanese films,animations, and comic books; give you insight into the special terminology used in your favorite martial art; help you understand the cultural basis for kamikaze training and the origin of the samurai warrior; and develop your ability to order sashimi like a native at your favorite Japanese restaurant!
