Japanese Language

Over 130 million people worldwide speak the Japanese language, though Japanese is spoken mainly in the country of Japan where it is the official language. The area that has the highest number of Japanese speakers outside of the country of Japan is Brazil, where there are around 1.5 million Japanese immigrants living today. There are also a significant amount of Japanese speakers living in Hawaii, Peru, Australia, the U.S., and the Philippines.

The Japanese language is a very old and traditional language, it originates from the Japonic (or Japanese-Ryukaan) language family, but is the only branch in this language family. There have only been two strong influences in the past on the Japanese language: English and Chinese.

In the early part of the last century, the Japanese language had a definite split between the written and spoken versions of the language. Bungo, or literary language, carried a very different form to colloquial language, or kogo. The former is considered to be a very formalized way of speaking, and is barely used today, with the more informal language now being used in writing as well.
