Looking for the origin of the innumerable loanwords in the Japanese language, this thesis gives an overview on how English influenced Japanese language and culture throughout history and today. Beginning with a historical overview starting from early language contact, the role of English and other languages in the Japanese culture is observed: in pre-WWII times as well as during and after the war, until today. An analysis of the current status of English in Japan follows, covering the fields ESL, business and the media. The last part focuses on the loanwords themselves, how they function, and what reasons for using loans excessively the Japanese might have, making a connection to wa-sei eigo, the so-called English-made-in-Japan.
