Same here. I was never really into anime [even though I do like how they draw it, it looks cool], I just really respected their traditional culture. I like how considerate they are of others [even if they hate them on the inside], how they treat their elders, how they can make simplicity beautiful and how they appreciate the aesthetics of nature. It dissappoints me how people, or at the least the people I know here in the US, just sign the Japanese off as some kind of cheap, for-sale culture. Like the whole geisha thing for instance. Why in the world do people think they were whores? They were high-class, respectable entertainers - way above some sell-out American celebrities. And the belief that sushi is raw fish. What the heck? Anyway, all I'm saying is that I like the Japanese and I think people shouldn't judge until they are mature enough to see it from the other person's [/people's] point of view.


ahw, nicely said. :D

Well, I learned a lot about Japan growing up because of my aunt. She had grown up there and used to try to teach me a word here or there but I would never pay attention. Till now that I'm older and have picked it up as an interests. I regret not trying to learn the language and stuff growing up so now I just try to make up for it by learning as much as I can. My favorite part about the culture has to be the food. Yummiiee!

I think that they put so much more effort into their work... I don't know about you... but it seems as though, in America, everything is done for money... And while I don't know if that's also the major motivation for Japanese culture, however from what I've experienced it seems as though, their love for the job is what drives them more so then the money...

Plus, I tend to like their culture more so then American culture. (in some cases, not all) For example, the direspect that people have with in America astounds me every time... so I have always grown to admire how the japanese language inputs a defalt ground for building respect. Especially for their elders... how they have to call them, sensei... or ~san. etc.

Also.. their entertainment industry is always what I have to go back to when compairing a large cultural difference between America and Japan. It seems to me, that people in the American entertainment industry only have one talent. An actor is good at acting and that's pretty much it... (and they are not even that good at acting). Where as in Japan.... you wouldn't be able to survive like that... you have to be able to be multitalented... which ends up resulting in better productions of work as well. Additionally, in the consideration of comedies... i like Japanese comedy over American comedy.. I just feel like American's tend to repeat the same exact jokes just with a tiny bit of differentiation... however the Japanese tend to get more creative and unique with their jokes.... One more thing that I've noticed... When it comes to movies, television, and dramas and such... I think that American shows are always (or at least normally) plot driven... Where as Japanese shows are always (or at least normally) development driven. They are more concerned with how the main character develops or changes.... Which personally, I prefer or watching cars explode...

ok... so that was kinda long, but that's just my own personal opinion. Sorry if i offended anyone....

I agree with this reply 90-100%.
Like said above, people mainly look at their pop culture and not at the rest. This is probably because it's so popular. Now, if you take the time to look in what else they have in store then you will probably like the rest of Japan too.
Their food is good, unique, and creative (not only with their style of cooking and ingredients but also how they turn their food into art).
Pop culture...Well this web site mainly focuses on that doesn't it? So why would I be posting this if I didn't like it? Heck. Why would anyone else be here if they didn't like it? Besides talking to other people and whatnot.
The Japanese culture altogether is great. Working together in groups, their language, customs, etc.
Of course, I don't entirely like EVERYTHING about Japan, I like most of it. My final reason why I like it is because it's different!

A sociological cesspool of problems that reflects the collective mentality of people in a developed nation, with regards on a cultural influence of materialistic capitalism.

I love it because it is one part Japanese, and ninety-nine part Chinese. What makes them truely unique is their ability to sell it off to foriegners who delights in the 'exotic' and 'oriental'. I also admire their ability not to question anything and their continued worship of WWII War criminals.

I don't know why I like Japanese culture. I guess it's because compared to my own, Japanese culture seems very exotic and interesting and exciting. I just like the Japanese way of life; day to day living, sort of thing. I adore of the festivals they hold; I would kill to go to those. And I just love the country in general for being so much nicer than mine, haha.

What is the 穂垂れ/hodare/penis festival, to "ensure a good marriage, fertility, or good fortune." Aside from the usual Japanese shrine festivities of food stands and games, the tradition demands the ritual of young girls mounting and bopping on top of a 2.2m@600kg wooden penis idol.

What's 援助交際/Enjo Kosai/compensated-dating and other expensive male-dominated Japanese erotica, when that's not for foreigner's(namely you) personal amusement. Because all that steam from the Japaneses being exploited by their capitalistic and materialistic culture had to go somewhere, however since you're not Japanese you're not allowed to exploit them by default.

There is no exploitation here, due largely to the fact that they sell there products.
It’s an open market my friend, and I’ve made a few purchases.
