Japan Current Situation
While ancestry research might not be as widespread in Japan as it is in Europe and the United States, the importance of family has always been deeply cherished throughout its rich history. In fact, in recent years, more and more people have become interested in their ancestors leading to increasing popularity.
Japan is a very unique country
Japan lags behind in the digitization of records, resulting in a multitude of records that can only be accessed by visiting museums and libraries, even to this day. Furthermore, Japan’s ancient documents are intricate and challenging to read, making it difficult for most Japanese individuals, let alone foreigners, to decipher them.
Ancestral research in Japan is unique in the world. Factors such as the family registry system and the complexity of the Japanese language contribute to its uniqueness, but the biggest is Japan’s status as an island nation with its distinct culture and history.
