But isn't it a bit over rated? I mean, yeah you watch an anime but that's not what Japan is really like. Oh wow jrock, I wanna go to japan. You aren't just gonna see some jrocker right off the street. I mean sooo many people take it tooo overboard when it comes to these japan issues. Japan is like everywhere else. It's a home, it probably has walmart and mcdonalds, and electronics eventually get over here. What's with the infatuation? No offense really it just ticks me off sometimes like people saying I wish I was born japanese because they're cool. You don't just get born that way. You work your way up. the end Opinions?

I have to agree, if Japan didn't have any of things that make it well known, Japan would probably be viewed as another country.

they dont have Walmart.. they have own kind of shopping place...like Daiei(idk how to spell it)..

I am Japanese, raised in Japan.. and from my point of view, i kinda agree with person who made this thread.... because people here are like they want to go to japan! for anime! miyavi! kat-tun! kyaaaaaa!!! ....like that.. but in reality, you can't really find anything except big buildings, some strangers, and some shopping and tour spots...... and im sure some people here are just joking around..

They need to PLAN when they go to Japan, like get tickets to Otsuka Ai Concert, go to Akihabara and buy bunch of electronics and anime figures, eat REAL Japanese food, or perhaps just go around the big city of Tokyo...

I call bullshit. I ate at McDonalds in japan and it tasted exactly the same. Everyone told me the same thing too (that it tasted it better). The ONLY difference is the the food looks just like the damned picture over there. They even arranged it on my tray for me. At least for stuff that we both have on the menu.

Only thing I noticed that really tasted different was the coke. I thought it was a lot sweeter than it is here.

I agree David, they think Japan is like the best country. They never grew up there and they think the life there is so awesome. Like for example in US people think High school is soooo good you get your own lockers and a great campus... WRONG my high school and others i went to are nothing like it.
