The country is very homogeneous from a linguistic point of view: 99.2% of the inhabitants have Japanese as their native tongue. The Japanese family still counts about ten ‘small’ languages, in danger of disappearing. The Ainu language (Hokkaido) is in decline: 15 speakers in 1996. Korean is spoken by 0.5% of the population; Chinese by 0.16%. English-speaking Japanese can be found without too much difficulty in the big cities.
The Japanese language is considered a complex one: the complexity of its vocabulary and writing is unique. Its graphic system is formed by kana and kanji (phonetic and symbolic alphabet) and Japanese writing is based on Hiragana (to transcribe foreign words), Katakana (endings, suffixes, particles), and Kanji (to represent words of Chinese origin).
The language of respect: the country of the rising sun has long attached great importance to politeness and respect for manners. Japanese has a number of specific suffixes used with different forms of politeness or ‘Keigo’.
The language of commerce: Japanese is the language of a country that holds an important strategic position in international trade, with a vast maritime domain and a great power in the robotics, technology, automotive, and renewable energy sectors.
Being the 11th most spoken language in the world, the Japanese language is also the 6th most used language on the Internet. The importance of Japanese is growing internationally, being the language of a country that is the third-largest economy in the world
