Title: Tanuki Magazine- Japanese Culture Worldwide
Author: Ortland, Kathryn Ruth
Abstract: Rich with tradition and ripe with nostalgic imagery, Japan captivates the Western mind. Japanese culture was almost unknown in the West two hundred years ago, yet its influences today permeate entertainment media worldwide. Though the popularity of Japanese music, movies, and animation is increasing cultural exposure to Japan, few resources exist to provide honest and educational information on Japanese ways of life. The unfortunate result is that the average American is far better acquainted with Hollywood stereotypes of Japan than with the real thing. TANUKI is a magazine that fills the deficit in coverage of Japanee popular and traditional culture outside of the entertainment market. It is designed as a travel-centric cultural interest magazine for readers who seek the hidden influences, new trends, and lingering traditions of Japan.
