my teacher and one of my acquantainces said that in fact all Chinese,Japanese and Korean came from China.
my teacher said : a long long time ago,the emperor of china wanted to be immortal.thus,he sent 300 boys and 300 girls to search for the pill of longevity.the children could not find the pill however long they tried.they figured out that they would be sentenced to death if they returned without the pill and settled on an island which is present japan and after that they grew up with families,some of them even went to korea.



is what he said the truth?

Nope! Japanese are a much older breed with heavy cultural influence from the continent but still older.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_Y-chromosome_DNA_haplogroup

Group C and D are at least 60.000 years old whereas N is about 15.000 -20.000 years old and O about 20.000 - 30.000 years.

China is probably the oldest high culture of mankind but even China isn't that old.

My mom told me a story kinda related to this. She said the Japanese were created because there was a group of Chinese people who didn't agree with the Chinese ways of the time and so they broke off into their own race or whatever. I believed that until age 10. Anyways, I'm not sure, but perhaps that may explain the similarities in the characters used in the writing. If we are descendants of the dragon emperor though, maybe i don't want to have an Asian girlfriend anymore....

All Asian countries branched out from somewhere, and it doesn't really matter whether or not they're from China. Now, they are all independent nations, so no, they aren't the same. To say they're the same would be pretty ignorant.
