I've posted this link before - check it out; there really are significant cultural ties here (the Amaterasu counting game thing is just an amazing and wonderful discovery): Israelites Came to Ancient Japan - www5.ocn.ne.jp
I digress but it occurs to me the Japanese spoken language (not the Chinese characters used for writing, but the language system) is just as much a gender-codified language as Latin. Although Japanese words themselves aren't masculine and feminine, there are different sets of words and phrases to be used by men and women. The difference is that the designated speech for feminine use is decidedly more honorific towards men, older people and other "authority figures", and that message is not only depicted all around through images and moving pictures but embedded in the psyche of the collective Japanese culture through simple everyday conversation.
On a happier note, it has a lively dotted meter-type rhythm to it, much like Italian, with the double tts allowing for measured rests within beats in such words as "motto" (more) and "chotto" (a little). It can sometimes resemble Russian with its cluster consonants in words like doushite (sounds more like doushte, making me hungry for borscht).
