IT’S A GOOD PLACE TO TRAVEL • Japan offers a very wide range of attractions, from historical and cultural treasures to modern and futuristic sights and beautiful forests, mountains and sea coasts. • http://www.japanguide.com/e/e623.html
Japan is a popular travel destination in winter and early spring for those seeking snow. Whether you are a die hard skiier or come from a country where the coldest it gets is in an air conditioned room, Japan offers something for everyone within easy reach of Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka. While most of Japan's major cities, including Tokyo and Osaka, receive only small amounts of snow, there are many places in Japan that get covered by lots of snow each year. The snow season in Japan is long and in some places begins as early as November and lasts into May with the peak in February.
Most Chinese people know the picture of Fuji Mount .The snow on the top attracts many people to travel there .
I like the lavender scent and the pure snow. If I have a chance ,I will go there and enjoy !
LANGUAGE Popular kanji symbols There are some Chinese characters in Japanese . So some Chinese people can read some articles without translation . http://www.japanese-name-translation.com/site/kanji_symbols.html
What symbols are used to write Japanese? • There are four kinds of symbols that make up four Japanese "alphabets" : • Kanji characters - complex Japanese symbols originally from China • Hiragana characters - simple, rounded Japanese symbols developed in Japan • Katakana characters - simple, angular Japanese symbols derived from kanji in Japan • Roman characters - the English alphabet
The history of Japanese kanji symbols • Japanese is thought to be related to the Ural-Altaic family of languages that includes Turkish, Mongolian, Manchu and Korean. An early form of Japanese existed from about the 3rd century AD. However, it wasn't until later that the Japanese gained the ability to write. The writing system they began to use was Chinese, imported from China and Korea along with a variety of technologies, political concepts and Buddhism. These imported Chinese characters remain in the Japanese language in the form of kanji characters. However, the difficulty in adapting the monosyllabic Chinese script to the polysyllabic Japanese language resulted in the development of hiragana and katakana symbols that are now used alongside kanji characters in written Japanese.
