The first gods summoned two divine creatures into existence, the male Izanagi and the female Izanami, and they commissioned the creation of the first land. To help them do this, they gave Izanagi and Izanami a spear decorated with jewels, named Amenonuhoko (spear of heaven). Then, the two deities were the bridge between Heaven and Earth, Amenoukihashi (floating bridge of heaven) and stirred the ocean with the spear. When drops of salty water fell from the tip of the spear, formed the island Onogoro (self-made​​). 

They descended from the bridge of heaven and made their home on the island. Since we wanted to join a pillar called Amenomihashira built around it and built a palace called Yahirodono (room whose area is 8 arms). Izanagi and Izanami circled the pillar in opposite directions, and when they met, Izanami, the female deity, spoke first with a greeting. Izanagi thought this was not the proper way, however they joined anyway. They had two children, Hiruko (infant water) and Awashima (island of bubbles) but were poorly made and not considered gods. 

They put the children on a boat and sailed the sea. Then they were asked the other gods a response to what they did wrong. They said that the male god should have initiated the conversation during the marriage ceremony. So Izanagi and Izanami went around the pillar again, and this time, when they met, Izanagi spoke first and their marriage was successful. 

From this union were born ohoyashima, or the eight major islands of the Japanese chain

The most important dresses of Japan are KIMONO and YUKATA. 

Kimonos: are made of silk and generally tend to be very expensive and for that reason are used only on special occasions  as funerals, weddings, tea ceremonies, among other; these dresses are used as a formality or as a tradition; the color and the design of each kimono depend of the occasion, the age and the marital status, also must be accompanied the right hairstyle, underwear and socks appropriate, and a small bag where women keep their stuff.

Yukata: is not a sophisticated dress and is used for free time activities, it is a comfortable dress and is much cheaper than the Kimono; are made of simple cotton.

Japan was the first Asian country to join the capitalist market by industrialization
Japan is one of the three largest economies of the world. They have factories for different products, mainly electronic products factories.
Japan have high imports, gor this reason it has the highest per capita income.
It hasn't problems of unemployment, because it gives a lot of jobs; In adition, the workers in high positions have a rhythm of hard work, as a result they have many health problems.
However, after World War II Japan has evolved and it is one of the major potencies.

In this moment   Third World countries have sought Japanese history in a magic bullet or a role model to escape from underdevelopment.

on other hand Japan has focused on humanitarian support. For example Japan has participated in Iraq's humanitarian mission, support of African countries.
