The Ainu have their own culture, language, and religion that have been fostered in harmony with nature (Tsunemoto, 2001).

In the past, they survived through hunting, gathering, and fishing (Tsunemoto, 2001).

Prosperous trade with Japan, Sakhalin, and Asian Continent further enriched the Ainu culture (Tsunemoto, 2001).
