I chose the country of Japan for my project. I chose this country because I’ve always been fascinated by the Asian culture and everything about it. I’m also very interested in the school systems they have there and also what kinds of food they have their. I expect to learn about the Japanese culture and the types of people they are grown up to be. I want to discover more about the ancient ways of their people and what made them who they are today in the modern world. Some questions I have about Japan are where they got their name, how their country came to be, and how they progress in their culture daily.
