Field researches were made mainly in the countries of Latin-Europe and Latin-America such as Portugal, Spain, Brazil in addition with U.S.A. The purpose to survey how exist the Japanese life cultures in these countries were attained through field watching and consulting the Japanese Embassy and JETRO.
It can be concluded that the most important Japanese life culture expanded in these countries are TV game, Bonsai and TV animation program.
Japanese TV game machines are displayed in the shopping window of the toy shop and sold much in Latin-European countries like as in other developed European countries. They occupy high ratio in the commercial trade between Spain and Japan.
The diffusion of Bonsai culture is remarkable in the popular culture of Latin-Europe and Latin-America. And the fondness for Bonsai expands deep in the people of the area, so that the societies and clubs are not organized and managed by the Japanese but by the Latin-European and Latin-American people themselves. Bonsai culture should be taken notice in the research of the cross-cultural feature of the Japanese life culture.
Japanese TV animation programs have the majority in the animation program telecasted for the children. We come to the conclusion that there is no distinction between developed European countries and developing European countries by selecting the telecast program for the children. Japanese animation are loved and chosen for telecasting by the catholic countries rather than by the protestant countries.
