See below for a wonderful animated infographic on the “Land of the Rising Sun”. It was created as a final thesis project by Kenichi Tanaka, a talented 23-year-old graphic designer raised in Nagoya, Japan. He has studied both in his home country and in sunny California, which enabled him to experience a different point of view on his own culture, as it is perceived by foreigners. In his short, Kenichi wanted to point out that while his countrymen take pride in the uniqueness of their culture, it also has its downsides.
