japanese grammar is learned from portuguese people

Look into Chinese Wu dialects. Of course Chinese has no advanced grammar, but the Japanese also did not have much grammar in their language before the Portuguese came. The Wu dialect's pronunciation on places like Wuxi for most of the Kanji is very similar to Japanese. The current mandarin should never be taken as a yardstick for research on Chinese language because it's originally a Manchu dialect from Northeastern China. generally China does not have a homogeneous language. Every small town has it's own dialect. Along the Yangtse river most people can understand Wu dialect. But further off they have totally different dialects or even entire languages.
