Something or someone hailing from the Orient. Absolutely NOT an offensive term, only considered so by the uptight, ultrasensitive PC crowd in America. In Europe, the term is widely used without any connotations of insult. Using "Asian" for a people within the continent of Asia is selfish and self-serving to undermine other non-Oriental people.
Akinori is from Japan, thus he is an Oriental.
The Oriental rugs were imported from China.
