Good post. Timecrimson. Merry Christmas to everyone!

The Japanese always had a lingering admiration for Chinese culture. Their own culture was profoundly shaped by Chinese civilization specifically the Tang Dynasty and their writing system is basically an importation of the Chinese system. Even though the spoken Japanese language isn't really linked to any other language on Earth in a profound way. It appears to be evolved on its own.

Even when Japan invaded China in the 30s and 40s. And it was a brutal occupation needless to say. The Japanese claimed they were helping the Chinese regain their the culture which they lost. Japanese believed themselves to be the true inheritor of the great lost Chinese culture.
