Overview: The Japanese are a unique blending of several racial streams that converged on the Japanese archipelago since 500 BC. Their civilization owes much to the influence of the Chinese, from whom they learned to write in the 5th Century. In addition to the large Japanese ethnic majority, this people cluster includes a number of smaller people groups whose origins lie in one or more of the 6,852 islands that comprise the archipelago.
