What do you hate about a Country/destination you love?
Posted 12/25/13
I love Japan and Japanese culture, but there are also things about the country that I can't stand.


Most of the movies and tv shows there(in my opinion) suck, don't get me wrong, the anime is great, but the movies/tv will leave you thinking "what on earth did I watch". They are really dark,corny or boring a lot of the time. I mean, Japan has the best technology to date, so why do a lot of their music video's match america's 1980's version/quality of video's. It's a little difficult to learn Japanese from watching Japanese TV when I'm weirded out by the sometimes horrible story lines, god awful special effects, and bad acting.

Anime is better there than anywhere else. Now before I get hate comments I must say that I love many things about Japan, but the reasons I mentioned earlier and a few more I can't stand.

So what do you hate about a place you love otherwise
?

I love Japan, but really can't stand how alot of animals are treated there, it's a country without any laws when it comes to animal cruelty, so there's so much more of it there than other places in the world, it's just disgusting to me.

OP all those sound like Entertainment issues. Do you have other complaints besides what everyone can see? As for me South America(Colombia,Peru,Brazil). Hated the cheese all of it tasted like it was spoiled. Well I'd have to sayost of the food sucked. Except the street food surprisingly.

Hmmm don't know enough about other countries really to comment on them negatively... hope to change that someday by being able to visit more countries.

US is a bit big to lump into one denominator so... I will just say in the area I live in... I hate how public transportation is next to non existent... and everything is just spread out enough to not warrant riding a bike everywhere (or maybe I am just too lazy to go the few extra miles on a bike).

When I visited Germany public transportation was everywhere, and you could easily get to other cities by train or bus. Where as here where I live, it's more of a hassle I think to use buses to get anywhere... passenger trains are non-existent... cabs are on-call only or at the airport... you get the idea.

Japan I know has a big public transportation/biking deal as well... just something that doesn't seem to exist where I live and I don't like that.

I'll limit it to where I actually live because I don't wanna start judging a place that I've never actually spent time in.

Country (US): I love what we are supposed to be, but hate what we actually are. (Vague, sorry, don't feel like diving in to this one.)

State (Maryland): I love the history, love the water, love the food (blue crabs, bitches). Hate the politics, particularly our ridiculously gerrymandered districts, and I hate that we were so slow to do something about the Bay's pollution and overfishing issues. I also dislike how expensive it is to live here, but that's a minor issue in comparison to others.

I'm born in the USA but live in Canada so I'll do one for both.

Canada(Alberta): The weather in winter sucks and the roads and sidewalks are always the worst. Also a lot of "black people" movies don't come to theatres. Everyone also seems to hate Americans :/ Other than that it's a great place to live. Also no anime show on Cartoon network and stuff but thats how I discovered Crunchyroll :D. #IwantToonamiback

USA(Georgia): A lot of pollen(had really bad allergies). Red ants were the worst. . Got really hot at times. (Not as much as Canada but I was only there till I was eight.)

Likes:
Multicultural/Ethnic diversity
People here are laid back
BBQs
Alcohol
Beach

Dislikes:
Racism and clear distinctions between ethnic groups (e.g. group of Aussies hanging out all together, group of Wogs hanging out all together, group of Arabs hanging out all together - sometimes they cross over and come together but very rarely and generally with undertones of racism. At my age, anyway.
I was raised with typical European ethics/standards/culture therefore sometimes people here are too loose with theirs ethics treatment and I can't get used to it/understand. However, there are people like that in every culture.

Edit: I live in Australia.

I lived in Japan for a few years (read: worked in japan), and one thing I hate about it is how everybody keeps to themselves. No eye contact at all, no greeting strangers you pass, when they walk by you you could be doing cartwheels and on fire and they'll pretend you aren't there (they are really good at not looking, too). They're super nice when you interact with them (at least in the areas that get foreigners, not so much in the middle of nowhere), but will avoid confrontation at all costs if they can lol.
