Estonians originate from the East and in the course of times many other people have come here to stay as well. It would be naive to think that Estonians have no connection to the Rising Sun. Within the ancient and closed world there is another world full of emotions, surprises and exotics. Estonians’ sense of hospitality has come from the East. The Eastern influence can also be felt in the modern-day educational level of Estonians. We understand civilised East better than many Western nations. The influence of the East can also be interpreted as Estonians’ international or multi-cultural feature.
