It's the other way around too. Was drinking with some friends in Japan and one of them was Korean. According to him, it was mostly Japan who argued with every little thing that happened between the two countries. Personaly I don't know what to believe. I just calmed him down and told him, "Dude, this is not the best place to bring that up".

World War II aside, Japan and Korea have been fighting over a piece of land called 'Dokdo' for years now - mostly for the fish surrounding the area. If you tell one of your Korean friends that Dokdo is Japan's, they'll have a fuss which can get old pretty fast. I've also witnessed a few Korean's hating on Japanese people just because of that reason alone. It's what their parents taught them, and it's what their school taught them, so naturally they latch on to that idea.

it's all about nationalism. Koreans and Japanese don't just dislike each other, they disliked any other ethnicity out there. Of course not every single Korean and Japanese person has that mentality, some of them are very nice and open minded people, but we are talking about the masses here.

Japan doesn't hate anybody. They just think they are superior to everyone else, why I have no idea. The last war they won was against the Czarist Russians back in like 1906 or something.

Neighbouring countries will tend to hate each other because of past conflicts or cultural differences or whatever. It's like how Americans hate Mexican "illegal" aliens, and those Northeast European countries hate each others' guts.

That's why if you love someone, stay away from them, the more you live with them, the more you grow to hate them.

Japan does seem to judge people on their race a lot. Meaning (Westerner, Japanese, Other Asian)

In the US we mainly judge people on how well they can speak English.
That is club membership. If you can speak English natively, you have full respect. The less natively that you can speak English, the less people think of you as a person.

Japanese nationalists have denied some of their atrocious from WW2. Specifically to korea was the issue of comfort women. Many korean women were held captive as sex slaves by Japanese soldiers during the war. Japanese nationalists and right wing politicians believe that they were prostitutes and deny that they were held against their will.

To be honest, Japan and South Korea don't have the best relationship. But then again, I wish Germany and EU could teach them a lesson about reconciliation. It's not only Japan and Korea. Taiwan and Japan may have a strong diplomatic relation, but there still some issues involving comfort women:

Taiwan again urges Japan to apologize to comfort women

Taiwan 'should be included' in comfort women talks

"white people" problem that concerns the inability to distinguish different Asian cultures. It's common to hear people confuse a Japanese person for Chinese or Korean, etc. and vice versa.


The thing I don't understand about this is I understand the are Asian cultural differences, but it still seems to me that this is a problem mostly made up from the other end. Yeah there are racist white people that can't tell the difference, but that still doesn't change the fact that no other group of people on Earth will get that butt hurt if you say the wrong country. If you call a German a Frenchman they'll probably just think you're stupid. If you call a Saudi person an Iraqi and they'll probably think you're just stupid. If you call a Taiwanese person Chinese and you're going to get yelled at and called a racist. It's like people from these areas are more racist to each other than you're average "white person" is.
