Why is Japanese an important language to learn?

Imagine flying halfway around the world to use a newly learned skill while experiencing ancient traditions, seeing modern influences, wandering through the mountains, meeting new people, and eating cuisine that changes with the seasons. This is completely possible when you take the time to learn Japanese and then travel over to Japan. At least one hundred and twenty-eight million people speak this language and most of them live within Okinawa. While you will see many Japanese speaking people over in Japan, you will also find yourself encountering them on a daily basis back home. Whether it is for work or as you go about your day, meeting travelers who are exploring the area near where you live. Once you take the time to learn Japanese, you will find that your skills are going to be in demand, especially in the business world, because Japan has the second largest economy in the world and there are numerous business opportunities there. You will also begin to learn more about other Asian cultures, because there are similarities between all the cultures within Asia. The good news is that Japanese is not that difficult to learn and since it is a different language from what many others choose, you will instantly stand out from all the other people who know at least one other language.
