Japan is an island country in East Asia. Located in the Pacific Ocean, it lies to the east of the Sea of Japan, China, North Korea, South Korea and Russia, stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and Taiwan in the south. The characters which make up Japan's name mean "sun-origin", which is why Japan is sometimes identified as the "Land of the Rising Sun".
It is one of the member states of Interpol.
Warriors of JapanEdit
The Steel Samurai and the Jammin' Ninja are fictional characters in their retrospective television shows. Both samurai and ninja originate from pre-industrial Japan, with samurai being the military nobility who followed a strict set of rules and ninja being covert agents or mercenaries who specialized in espionage, sabotage, infiltration, and assassination. Thus the two were contrasts, as were the Steel Samurai and Jammin' Ninja, who were from rival television studios.
Misty's Japanese garbEdit
Godot describes the vandalized scroll depicting Misty Fey in Hazakura Temple's Training Hall as her wearing "stunning Japanese garb surrounded by the hue and aroma of Western tastes" (the latter part being his way of saying the scroll was covered in gravy).
A bloody HinomaruEdit
When Quercus Alba murdered Manny Coachen, as Coachen had attacked in self-defense, a drop of Alba's blood fell onto a box of Samurai Dogs. By chance, this spot of blood colored the sun on a black-and-white Japanese flag (Hinomaru) on one of the boxes. This led Wendy Oldbag to think that it was special, and it turned out to be a vital piece of evidence that finally proved Alba to be the culprit.
Capcom, the company responsible for the Ace Attorney series, is headquartered in Osaka, Japan.
Since the games are Japanese-made, the original setting was Japan and so originally featured many references to Japanese culture. When the games were translated into English, the setting was changed to Los Angeles, California and the cultural references were changed to make sense to a western audience.
Despite the setting being moved to the United States, a number of artifacts from the original versions remain. Examples include the presence of Japanese temples, Furio Tigre's collection of Japanese items in his office, and the Kitaki family still having a distinctly Yakuza feeling to them.
