The characters that make up Japan's name mean "sun-origin", which is why Japan is sometimes referred to as the "Land of the Rising Sun". Japanese culture dates back to the Upper Paleolithic period. Its traditionalistic heritage has helped maintain cultural habits. Some of them, like sushi, have crossed borders and become highly successful abroad.
