  • Although Japanese uses Chinese characters, the Japanese language was born in Japan and is not related Chinese - or any other language for that matter.
  • Japanese people actually call their country にほん (Nihon) or にっぽん (Nippon). This roughly translates to "Land of the Rising Sun". The word "Japan" is a foreign word originating from early Portuguese explorers in China.
