In Palauan language, there are approximately 1,000 Japanese originated words, which are used as Palauan even today.

Japan and Palau are celebrating its 25th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations this year.

The two countries are tied with its long history, and various Japanese influences can be seen in Palauan language and culture.
