trade with Nippon, those good old days (XIX century) has

Sorry for not having the time to update this thread, maybe i will do it later. Thanks for the comments everyone!

Here is one more traditional japanese thing

Akomeogi

The folding fan was invented in Japan in the 8th century and taken to China in the 9th century. The Akomeogi (or Japanese folding fan; 衵扇; Hiôgi) originated in the 6th century. These were fans held by aristocrats of the Heian period when formally dressed. They were made by tying thin stripes of hinoki (or Japanese cypress) together with thread. The number of strips of wood differed according to the person's rank. They are used today by Shinto priests in formal costume and in the formal costume of the Japanese court (they can be seen used by the Emperor and Empress during coronation and marriage) and are brightly painted with long tassels.

In Japan, we've changed so much favorite taste for both genders as much as we've accostomed to foreign customs and changed a skill of makeup even their body flames dynamically.
Now, woman trends have moved from a mature woman to more skinny like an europian fashion model and younger woman which is a quite unique point compared to other countries.
I guess, at the last picture of Japanese woman wearing traditional costume is not hot nowaday, but also you can consider there's nothing problem because if you look at by what is like
a historical beautifull woman, she is kind of perfect. You can find how Japanese has changed. In addition, women wearing traditional traditional costumes like the picture are
good entertainers and have another virtue from modenizm.

I like Japanese gardens and temples, they look very cool. The more historical/traditional stuff in Japan looks a lot better than some other stuff in Japan. The Buildings and Trains are bland, but functional, IMO :).
