Japan is, and always has been, seen as a group of mysterious islands, of which people knew little about, due to its far location from Europe and America. Indeed, 250 years of almost complete isolation of the country, which started in the 18th Century (Tokugawa Era) did not help the world to increase its knowledge about this society. As a result, the Western vision of Japan stays inaccurate, even caricatured sometimes. This caricature is mostly applied to the Japanese people, who I will focus on in the first part. In the second part, I will deal with the Japanese culture, whose influence is growing in Europe and the United States. And in the third part, I will briefly talk about the image of Japanese organizations.
