All cultures are a mix of the indigenous and the assimilated, but Japan is singularly defined by its ability to preserve the ancient while thriving amidst the modern. Thus it is a land where the national sport, Sumo wrestling (dating back to 200 AD as a Shinto rite to produce an abundant harvest), vies for TV time with the post WWII-era baseball craze. Highly ritualized yet simple, elegant yet bold, traditional yet evolving, static yet dynamic, Japan's contradictions are utterly fascinating.
