Term Oriental: is used as an adjective akin to "eastern": for
example, the Philippine island Mindoro is divided into two provinces
whose titles include the words "oriental" and "occidental"
respectively. Traditionally, the Orient referred primarily to the
cultures and countries of what are now considered Eastern Europe,
Northern Africa, the Middle East, and Western Asia. This
particularly included Persia, Mesopotamia, Asia Minor, and Egypt. As
awareness of the countries of Eastern Asia grew in Western European
and American consciousness in the late 19th century, the term came
to refer primarily to China, Japan, and the surrounding nations.
Remnants of the older conception of the Orient still exist in the
English language in such collocations as "Oriental rug" and
"Oriental harem". In popular usage, the Orient is most often used in
reference to the countries of East Asia, including China, Japan,
Taiwan, Korea, Vietnam, and sometimes the rest of Southeast Asia.
The term "Oriental" refers to people, goods and culture from those
areas. Asian countries such as India, Afghanistan, and Sri Lanka are
no longer generally considered by some people to be part of the
