Japanese influences on the Filipino culture


Japanese influences manifested our love to work. Dignity of labor and working hard were one of the values that Filipinos were widely known, love for cartoon/anime series also, their being respectful because as you can observe Japanese people loves to bow their heads in giving respect and acknowledgement to another person and sometimes we Filipinos do the same, taking off slippers or shoes when entering your or other’s house and also, the prevalence of Japanese restaurants in the country is one proof that we’re also being influenced in our choice of foods.
