If you love Japan, you should know or at least ever heard of the word "Kawaii".
For you who don't know what the term means, it is a Japanese term that means "cuteness." Culture wise, it means the Japanese practice of celebrating all adorable things.
The kawaii culture is said to have started in Japan in the 1970s. That time marked an era when Japanese teenagers developed their handwriting style characterized by childlike strokes.
From there, the culture spun from how it is done today anywhere in the world. That is, through fictional characters. One example would be Sanrio's Hello Kitty, which was first introduced in 1974.
