On Japan Probe

Posted on May 12, 2007


Since I have a 100+ unread entries from Japan Probe’s feeds, I’m only going to post today’s entries only.

First off, read about why Americans and Japanese Read Faces Differently. Is it really due to tatemae? and probably it will help you figure out those Japanese emoticons.

Still via Japan Probe, another study that found a Perceptual Divide Between Asians and Americans.

If your not up to some scientific studies stuff for today then checkout Japan’s “top three” of almost everything you can think of starting with a group of hundreds of islands called Matsushima.

And for fun, create your own Toro(the Sony cat) from paper. It’s a limited paper-folding project offered in downloadable PDF or JPEG form until June 30th.
