SYNOPSIS - The pursuit of harmony and manners, sometimes count more than the aim, and Japanese people grow up assimilating the subtleties of this unique culture throughout their lives, respecting the varied and invisible rules of the society.

Japan has a fascinating, multi-faceted culture and 'WA' (in Japanese), a value based on the principle of avoiding discord, is perhaps the term that best characterizes the Japanese way of life. Although Japan is known for its time- and energy-consuming work ethic, the Japanese people attach the most primary importance to social cohesion.

This is certainly a reassuring characteristic, but it is not without consequences, since, under the pretext of not breaking the balance of things, it can be common to observe an alienation or even a repression of unexpressed feelings.

On the one hand, influenced by the deepest traditions dating back thousands of years, and on the other hand, a society in constant evolution, Japan is proof of a cultural development that constantly pushes the limits of what is possible.
