Today’s Word: tradition

☆  tradition 伝統


A tradition is a custom or belief that has existed for a long time. This is one thing that I love about Japan; there are so many amazing traditions that still exist today, even though society is changing and globalization is now a part of everyday life.

How do you think Japan manages to maintain these traditions so well? Do you think that in the future all these traditions will continue, or will some (or many?) disappear as the younger generation moves towards a more global lifestyle? Without people carrying on the tradition it is hard for it to continue, right? How do you think this will affect Japan?
