The first recorded writing for Japanese is Chinese characters and dates back to the 8th century. Scholars brought the Chinese written language over and it became the language of nobility. But written languages existed in the world before then. Was there an original written form of Japanese that was lost to time? Scholars have debated this for ages. They call one such possibility Jindai Moji. Though, they believe the supposed evidence to be faked or destroyed. Ironically, in recent years the idea has resurfaced only in a stranger, more magical context. Look at the following report.
I spoke to a man—at least that's the form he took. When he spoke the word lotus, writhing lines popped right into existence and they settled onto the page. I could not read the bizarre living character, for it didn't look like modern or even ancient Japanese. But when he picked it up off the page, a lotus flower shimmered in his hand. I consider myself a man of reason and had to touch the flower to believe it was real. When I glanced in the window that shone with the lamplight, I did not see a man in the reflection. It was an ancient dragon, and my knees shook so hard they knocked together. He waved off my terror and said the flower was the manifestation of the old, pure Japanese by the ancient kami. His ancestors passed it down to him.by justicon
