It's just that I've heard more than once that the term "oriental" is considered racist these days.

tell me about it, everything is racist these days, a sports commentator was fined because he said that "di maria's behaviour was too latino". Di Maria is Argentinian, so yeah, people are evil and they love to start shit.
soon enough they'll ban the word "European" too, but I'm straying

The earliest textual references to Japan are in Chinese classic texts. Within the official Chinese dynastic Twenty-Four Histories, Japan is mentioned among the so-called Dongyi 東夷 "Eastern Barbarians".
