@MNBlockHead:

As one married to a Japanese I can relate to all that.

My wife had to be written out of her Father's household record when she married me - I was under the impression that those household records was uniquely Japanese, but live and learn :-)


And yes, customization is always a nice thing to have.

(And new word for the vocabulary: perpetuation)

Funny, I was actually added to my wife's household record. More funny is that in Taiwan, there are families that have no sons who will pay a young man marrying one of their daughters to join their household to keep the family going. My wife had no brothers so there were a lot of jokes about that, though it was really just a matter of convenience, as I was not a citizen and not eligible to establish a household there, but was a legal resident through marriage.

The Hukou system goes back to the Xia Dynasty, so has been around for three and a half millennia or so. When Taiwan was part of the Japanese empire the Japanese koseki system. My understanding is the that modern system is closer to the Japanese system than the Chinese, but I don't know enough about the similarities and differences between the two household registration systems.

I am pretty sure, that the Japanese was inspired by the Chinese system and then twisted it 'slightly' so it became uniquely Japanese.

Japanese history - especially early history - is choke full of such examples.

I believe my wife was written out of her Father's household records, as she literally left his house (never mind she has lived elsewhere for years). I don't have a household record being a henna gaijin (=strange foreigner) and living outside Japan. I believe I am mentioned in my father-in-law's household record.

And as in Taiwan, having a household record (not just being mentioned as a side note) means you have Japanese citizenship.

And... how do I get this back on topic? think-think...

Oh right... Siblings. The Japanese (at least my family) take it very serious, that we are now one family - for instance my brothers-in-law simply consider themselves to be my brothers - no distance or difference.

I know, poor attempt at getting back to the thread...
