THE JAPANESE CODE OF THEN AND NOW
For the past 1100 years, Japan has what we call the Samurai warrior code, the Bushido code. This code has been followed during the feudal system in Japan.

Here are some of the codes that have followed:

1). CHU........... Duty and Loyalty

2). GI ........... Justice and Morality

3). MAKOTO........ Complete Sincerity

4). REI .......... Polite Courtesy

5). JIN .......... Compassion

6). YU ........... Heroic Courage

7). MEIYO ........ Honor

But times has changed now, Japan is now in the mainstream of the western culture, so they now have:

KARAOKE
............ Oke is orchestra. literally translated as Music
............ without the lyrics. so you supply the Lyrics on
............ your term of voice and melody. this is how Japan
............ has brought its culture to the west and vice versa.
