Is it the Encyclopedia of Everything Japanese, or is it Everything's Japanese Encyclopedia? It's both!

After 1662 entries, the EJE grew too big to fit in a single e2node. After consulting with several editors, a plan for breaking up the Encyclopedia was organized. It has been broken into sub-nodes by content. Three sections were not liberated; "Other", "Social Life/Leisure", and "Tales from Japan" will be kept in this writeup until they get large enough to merit their own nodes. The "Food" section has been split up: the Cookery project has absorbed the listing of Japanese Recipes into that node, while other aspects of Japanese cuisine, such as general dish descriptions and etiquette, may be found in Japanese Food.

If you see one of your w/u's that is missing, or have come across one that isn't listed here, please /msg us.

For questions about node-naming conventions and other Japanese noding standards, consult E2 Japanese Conventions. Otherwise, feel free to address other questions to the bakufu usergroup.

Changes of note:

  2. Japanese Food and been added to supplement Japanese Recipes
  3. The Great Breakup has occured.
  4. Category "Tales from Japan" added to hold true stories of Japan's encounters with noders. Categories reordered alphabetically.
  5. Category "Literature/Art" reorganized to better indicate what things are
  6. Category "Geography" reorganized to show hierarchy of political divisions.

Nodes marked with a "(*)" contain links to many, many other Japan-related nodes; I have chosen to not list these other nodes for simplicity and size issues because I haven't gotten around to it yet.
Infinite props to gn0sis, Jeeves, mauler (Apologies to mauler for not adding his Nihon-noding self sooner), Pseudo_Intellectual, sekicho, Sensei, superfly, tokumei, and Wintersweet for their many Japan-related write-ups, and to the indefatigable Shro0m for helping me pull them all together.
