「和」 Soul of Japan

 

 

「和」  Soul of Japan

Harmony

Japan’s traditions evolved in the context of a collaborative agricultural society.

 

 

 

 

People had to work together on a limited amount of land to raise the rice crop,so the needs of the group were given priority over those of the individual.

 

Harmony of wa is about understanding and accommodating other people’s point of view to ensure that the group can take action smoothy and effectively.
