I don't get how people are defending this notion without having witnessed it themselves. Japan isn't a bad place, I had a wonderful time and everyone I know who went had a great time too.

But I'll finish with this, we have a concept of "we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone". Now it's OK for us to say this but if it's Japan then it's racist. That's dumb.

I have been there once and i have traveled to many places around the world and i have never encounter racism at least not directed at me.

but yes refusing to serve someone simply because they are not locals or nationals is RACISM or at the very least DISCRIMINATION.

and the sign that says they reserve the right to refuse service. is not the same as no foreigners allowed.


the sign mean that they can refuse to serve more liquor to a drunk person. or to anyone causing problems but that does not mean you can't go in. it just means that if you cause trouble they wont serve you and will probably kick you out.

in japan its different you wont even be allowed to go in no matter if you are well behaved or not. that is discrimination no matter how you put it.

but it seems that you kuro kiri are defending even those aspects of japanese culture blindly just like a crazed fan girl (groupie) defending their favorite band even if they are the worst human or have the worst personalities

New York City. Just always admired that the city is so active. Where I live is completely dead and empty. I just want to be somewhere you can actually meet people in places other than social networks and have more locations to spend your time in.

I have never been to where you live but I am from a small town. I moved to NYC a while back. At first, I hated it here because it smells worse than where I'm from and I wasn't used to a lot of the differences but I have grown to like it here... There is a ton to do and you're never alone. I have had girls try to pick me up grocery shopping and at the mall(turned them down because I was with my gf.) I had a co-worker come on so strong I couldn't say no...I mean really couldn't say no... I'm not a great looking guy but it is very easy to find a girl here. I've also found racism seems less here than where I used to live. NYC is more diverse so I guess they don't have such small minds about things, which I like...and finally you see actors and stuff in Manhattan pretty much daily.

Look at me going on and on like I'm selling travel tickets. I'm just tired and saw NYC. Goodnight!

Not really, I got the part where you're calling me a fangirl and I'm blindly defending something.

But I'm calling you out on that. I don't think you went, I think you're bullshit like I think the that other girl is bullshit. The US is the most racist country on earth, you live in it so I'm sure you're desensitized to it enough not to notice it happening right under your nose but it's naive to say the Japanese are racist simply because you "heard about it" or "saw a video".

End of story.

you are reading but i don't think that you understood my post, so go and read my post again, and during my stay in japan i got called a gaijin almost anywhere i went. with the exception of the hotel i stayed at and businesses(stores or shops) they were all very respectful but on the street its a different story. one of my friends got nasty looks pretty much anywhere he went. (he is black). i don't really know where you live but if you don't live the the US of A then what you are saying is basically hearsay and pretty much makes all your opinions worthless since you have nothing to base them on but what you hear from someone else, or read somewhere so saying that the USA is the most racist country on earth is a fallacy.

Good point jer5000 - you haven't seen racism until you've been to SE Asia
