Posted 7/5/12 , edited 7/5/12
1. I love the Foods! I make some delicious Yakisoba, Teriyaki Chicken, Onigiri and Ramen.
2. I love the Language. I like how it sounds. The writing System (Kanji, Hiragana, Katakana..) are beautiful.
3. I like the customs, I like how you bow instead of shaking hands (prevents germs) I like how people address others with
San, Chan, Kun... Etc..
4. I love Anime & Manga (Obviously)
5. I also love Japanese music.
6. The Night Life is beautiful.

for me it started with anime. but after watching a few shows i became gradually more interested in the rest of the culture and traditions. what i find really interesting is their food culture. so simple but also really nice on the eyes and tasty.
i also like how they, at least it seems so, try to preserve a lot of their own culture even though theres a lot influence from the west.
and respect and manners still seem important in japan.

Hi.
I make new community "Japanese Culture Art and Design"
http://www.facebook.com/JapaneseCultureArtAndDesign

Introduce Japanese local craftsmen, artist and designers to the world.
I help this community as volunteer translator.

I would like to introduce more Tohoku artists, from the area that suffered most in the earthquake and tsunami of 2011.
Please, encourage the artists and designers by commenting on their work if you like it!

Also, If you have a friend who is interested in Japanese culture, please invite them to this community.

Really thanks.

I must say some of you sound, quite silly. Ignorant even, and not in an innocent way. I think it would be safe to say many of you are modern Liberals (not classical). Japanese society/culture is quite Conservative, and when I say Conservative, I'm not talking about the type an ignorant person would imagine. Like some redneck country bumpkin who is also a sunshine patriot, meaning they talk about how great America is, yet really do nothing, and will bash other cultures.

I grew up in a classical Conservative home, where honor, RESPECT, discipline, and love for good traditions that empower one mentally, and spiritually (even physically in many aspects), were important. My family raised me to be courageous, to help others in need, and yes I even learned what heroism is... Sounds pretty cheesy right? That's the problem with western culture today, many people see these virtuous things as "outdated", "cheesy", and lame- which is all part of why western culture kinda sucks now. I do know the idea that was behind America, and the term "All American". Its a noble thing, very difficult to live up to, something else many people today do not care for. That is real American culture, combined with the cultures of many who have come here.

In Japan it is quite different, and some are somewhat shocked when they see a westerner behave as I mentioned above. I remember when I moved to Japan for awhile, I immediately fell in love with the culture, because most of it mirrored exactly what I grew up with, and I thought it was funny for many Japanese to tell me "For an American, you're very Japanese". Japanese people who I think are awesome, are ultimately people like everyone else, no more no less, and I ran into loud mouth disrespectful idiots there, like I've run into loud mouth disrespectful ignorant idiots in America, Europe, and Canada. Basically there are sucky and cool people no matter where you go lol.

I will say though, there is something very particularly disgusting that I find in western culture- and it primarily comes from those who ignorantly call themselves liberals, or progressives... Its the "gimmie gimme, me me me first" type of attitude. Its a very disgusting entitlement behavior, impatience, and quick to complain about everything. I was amazed that this was extremely extremely small in Japanese society. People who would work hard without expecting praise and adulation, or a "prize". That was something else I had grown up in my classic conservative home.

Of course there were some aspects that did annoy me, like I'd often run into prudish people, who reminded me of modern conservatives. Growing up nobody in my family cared about race, or someone's sexuality- the only thing that matters is the person's heart, and their actions which reflects what is in their heart. One other of many things I found interesting, is that even though I seemed very Japanese to everyone I ran into. If I decided to live there for the rest of my life (which I almost did, but I missed my family a lot), I'd never be seen as Japanese, but a foreigner. In America its quite different, an immigrant can become, and be seen and thought of as American, not entirely the same in Japan lol.

Things I don't miss about Japan, would have to be high school girls being a bit too forward and annoying, and old people touching me on the trains and such lol... But it is a great country, I love it, and I love America as well... But I don't like how stupid and un-serious we've become.

With the Anime thing... Not everyone in Japan is into Anime, or video games. My friend Eiji's parents forbid him from having any of that stuff, and I kind of corrupted him with it LOL., now he and I are working on a graphic novel, and video game... Hmm now for some reason I have a huge craving for nachos, must get some lol.

Well I never been to Japan but I love their technology and also its the place where anime/manga was born. There is also one other thing but I don't like to admit it but oh well here it goes, I love the sceneries of cherry trees of the parks or well anywhere else its just amazing.

I don't know, I just do... It's an immensly strong feeling. Maybe a past life in Japan. Most likely.

But I like the meeting of the traditional and the modern ways in Japan and it's culture. :)
I'm impressed by Japan's beauty. I think, it's a neverending love.
