China and Japan are close neighbors who belong to the same East Asian Chinese character culture system, and have many similarities in language and folk culture. This thesis takes folk culture as a research perspective, and compares the similarities and differences between Chinese and Japanese cultures in terms of food culture and taboo culture respectively. Firstly, the article explains the definition scope and classification criteria of folk culture; secondly, the two points of food culture and taboo culture are selected for comparison from material folklore and spiritual folklore. Food culture focuses on table manners, cooking standards and eating habits, and analyzes the reasons for the formation of food culture from three aspects: economic development, geographical environment and social culture. Finally, the scope of taboo culture is large, so this paper selects two representative differences in numerical taboos and color taboos for discussion, showing the preference of Chinese and Japanese folklore. Finally, a short summary of the significance of folk culture for cross-cultural communication is presented.
