Japanese has many words borrowed from other languages. For example, the word for thank you ‘arigato’ is said to be taken from the Portuguese word for thank you ‘obrigado’ because of the early Portuguese settlers in Japan.

The names of the famous high speed Japanese bullet trains are very poetic. For example, the Hayabusa (peregrine falcon) , the Hayate (gust of wind) and the Yamabiko (mountain spirit).
