Japanese "Rirekisho" Resume Forms

One useful way of understanding Japan as a whole is using the idea of kata, a word that can mean "mold" (to shape things), "model" (as in the model number of product), "type" (for classification, also used for blood type), the customary postures taken in martial arts, or (in this case) "pre-defined customary form." While people looking for work in the West will write a resume or C.V., in Japan you always use a rirekisho (履歴書, ree-REK-sho), a standardized "employment history form" that serves as both job application and a personal resume. When you want to apply for a job in Japan, be it for a truck driver or sushi chef or computer programmer, you get one of these forms from the stationery store (or J-List) and fill it out by hand. Virtually everything that's important about you is recorded on the form: name, address, school and career history, what special certificates or qualifications you hold, as well as your hobbies and interests. Some information isn't recorded, of course, such as anything related to religion or political affiliation, and there's no space to fill in your blood type, to avoid "blood type bashing" (unfairly discriminating against people based on this odd Japanese superstition). The standardized employment history form is very different from the resumes used in America, which have no fixed format and can be plain or fancy, short and to-the-point or extremely detailed, printed on paper stock of any color and so on. The Japanese definitely prefer the kata (pre-set closed form) of a Japanese rirekisho to the open-ended American resumes.

Japanese job history forms are very set in stone, with little flexibility.

Random "Nihongo" from J-List on Twitter

I like to post various things to my Twitter feed, including various observations about Japan as well as info on new J-List products and various cool images I come across on the Internet. I'm also fond of randomly throwing out nihongo (Japanese) related tweets when I think of something unique or interesting to post. (Random nihongo: the Japanese word for "jail" is rouya, pronounced "lawyer.") Twitter is a great tool for reaching out to people, especially for getting quick feedback on ideas or for just exchanging opinions with people interested in Japan. (Random nihongo: the Japanese version of "the customer is always right" is okyakusan wa kamisama or "the customer is God.") It's also a great way for customers to ask questions and give us feedback on the products we sell, or what they'd like to see us write about here. (Random nihongo: a popular way to express "yes, you are correct!" in Japanese is atari, just like the video game company, a term that comes from the game of Go although Japanese are unaware of this connection.) Using Twitter has had a strange side-effect for me: I'm generally aware of what time it is everywhere in the world, when they're having breakfast in London or when folks in North Carolina are calling it a night. (Random nihongo: in Japanese, "arm wrestling" is called ude-zumou, literally "arm sumo wrestling.") If you're on Twitter or Facebook, please check us out there -- you might get some random nihongo!

Randon nihongo: arm wrestling is called "arm sumo" in Japanese.

When It Comes to Using English, "Nothing Venture, Nothing Win!"

Japan is a unique language in that so many of its words come from English or (depending on the era) from other European languages. Sometimes it's simple words like "glass" or "camera" or "chance" that have been imported as-is, and sometimes things get more complex, like the way the Portuguese word confeito (meaning confection or candy) morphed into the awesome Japanese star-shaped candy from Spirited Away. The Japanese language has changed rapidly over the last few decades, and it's not uncommon for previous generations to have no idea what all these new katakana words are -- referring to the writing system used for foreign loan words -- and there are actually "katakana dictionaries" for older Japanese to look up foreign words in. There's a certain kind of Japanese person who loves peppering their speech with English phrases, in part to show how smart they are. The Democratic Party of Japan is famous for this, using words like "manifesto" "populism" "innovation" or "new millennium frontier" despite a significant number of voters being unfamiliar with these English terms. In the anime Hanasaku Iroha, there's an annoying consultant who shows up, spewing English slogans like "there's no time like the present!" or "nothing venture, nothing win!" [sic].

My new manifesto is, "nothing venture, nothing win!"

Of Rain and Grammar

One observation I've made about the Japanese people is that they often don't pay close attention to their own language, and in the course of writing these slice-of-life posts I often ask linguistic questions of J-List's Japanese staff that completely stump them. Japan will soon be entering one of my least favorite times of the year, its month-long rainy season, when it will rain most every day and generally be dreary. This rainy season is called tsuyu in Japanese, written with kanji for ume (Japanese plum) and rain, but when I ask a Japanese person where this unique kanji name comes from they will often shrug and say they never thought about it much. Or when I observe that the ben kanji in bento (弁当)is the same as the one in Osaka-ben (大阪弁), they'll say something like, "You're right! I never realized that!" The ben character means "speech," but the word bento comes from a 12-century Chinese word meaning "convenient" which got corrupted over time. Incidentally the to (当)character in bento is atari, meaning "to hit" (either to hit against something such as a car with another car, or to "hit a bullseye" and get the correct answer), which is where Atari got its name and the idea for its corporate logo. Of course, we English speakers don't always think so deeply about our language, either, and Japanese are frequently disappointed that the average person on the street can't explain grammar related to gerunds, infinitives and prepositions to them.

Rainy season is my least favorite time in Japan. Though I like this picture plenty.

Buddhist Hospitals and Preschools in Japan

Although only around 1-2% of Japanese report themselves as Christians, the cultural footprint of Christianity in Japan is much larger. When I first arrived in Japan I found myself pressed into service playing "Santa-san" for a friendly local Baptist church, and there are many Christian hospitals and "mission-kei" schools in Japan, too. (My daughter attends one.) They're less common, but there are similar Buddhist facilities in Japan as well. Once I had to go to the hospital because of a knee injury, and the one we chose to was a nearby Buddhist hospital, which was interesting to me specifically for that reason. I also used to teach English at a Buddhist preschool, which was a learning experience. It was just a preschool, the same as any other, but one that exposed the kids to the teachings of Buddha and respect for their ancestors. When Christmas rolled around I also played Santa Claus at that school, too, which made the kids happy, though it felt really strange to mix cultures like that.

The Mystery of "Touhou"

Japan certainly has the power to confuse us with strange and wonderful things, and Japanese popular culture can be very perplexing. One of the best examples of this is Touhou, a complex world of subculture centered around a series of indie shooting games first released in 1998 by a guy named ZUN. It's hard to explain why Touhou -- no relation to the Toho Movie company, though it's fun seeing people try to figure where Godzilla comes in -- went from being a mild-mannered "bullet hell" style scrolling shooter to one of the primary engines for creative doujin culture today, but I'll try my best. First of all, the Touhou shooting games are of outstanding quality, with great music and graphics, and this got people's attention early on. There's a huge cast of characters who appear in the games as protagonists or level bosses, and no matter how hard you try, a few will start to appeal to you for different reasons -- I fell in love with Patchouli Knowledgebecause smart girls who read a lot are hot. Many of the inhabitants of Gensyoko (as the Touhou world is called) are youkai, a kind of Japanese folk spirit/ghost/monster, and the Touhouverse benefited from the general "youkai boom" Japan has experienced over the past decade or so. Another theory about how Touhou became so popular: "It's the hats." Most characters feature extremely cute headgear that becomes hard for fans to resist, try as they might. (Of course J-List stocks many Touhou products, including all the popular shooting games for Windows including the new game for 2011 which you can preorder, the official Touhou manga, and many other awesome products.)
Who's your favorite Touhou character? I also like Cirno (naturally), Remilla, and Marisa/Reimu.

Touhou is a complex world of Japanese subculture.
