No its the fact that they are so objected towards the concept of someone of a different culture coming to Japan and polluting the Japanese culture that they turn to robots that is the problem. Japan has a really horrible track record of destroying any aspects of other cultures that "may pollute" their culture. Hence why the Ainu langauge is dead and the culture is literally on the brink of extinction after the Meiji government forcibly made them citizens of Japan and made it illegal for them to speak their own language and practice their culture. The only reason they practice it now, is because the government exploits it for monetary purposes. Most Japanese dont even know who the Ainu are, even though they are the major minority group in Japan.

Its not cool trust me. You may think it its "cool" but its not. Most of my Japanese friends at my Canadian University also agree that its not cool. When you have to work overtime for work because your expected to out of 義理(giri:duty) to the point you are unable to have a life outside of work and slaving away for piss poor wages its not cool. The amount of suicides in Japan that are caused by the coldness between certain people is horrific.

Trust me, when you are talking to someone you thought was your really good friend, and they still talk to you in Keigo (polite speech) or refer to not using your first name, it really sets you back in thinking about your relationships with that person. Its extremely hard for foreigners especially to understand the social climate and their relationships in that kind of environment. It looks cool from the outside for you, but once you get on the inside you will not enjoy it.


ah gotcha that does sound awful to objectify people of other countries.
Working for piss poor wages is awful but working overtime out of duty sounds normal to me since i don't care about a social life i just want to work.

I do understand that its an awful culture but it has some positives to it even though not many but hey i can understand i mean i live in country that has more negatives then positives so

Japan is NOT the greatest country in the world. No country is the greatest in the world. Countries are just as flawed and imperfect as their citizens. I'm sick of people praising their country like it's great while ignoring the faults that it has.

A couple of interesting points that I picked up from watching the young lady explain why she quit her part time supermarket cashier job.

In America, if an employee complained to their boss that a customer groped them, the boss is obligated to reprimand the customer (politely tell the customer not to do it again or they'll call the police).

Where I work, if a patient gropes a nurse (depending on how sick the patient is), that patient may get kicked out of the ER. Or police may get called. But seems Japan have no such requirements for employers to protect their workers.

Also, Japan's aging problem seems to be creating a situation where there are not enough young people to watch over them, so it seems that the elderly are getting into all kinds of trouble (getting lost, getting hurt, etc.)

She also seemed to imply that the elderly have a lot of political pull, and had a lot of advantages over the younger generations, in legal situations. Meaning that if an elderly groped a young woman, and she pushed him away in self defense, and he got hurt, she will lose in court - even with video evidence to back up her claim. The fact that he got hurt nullifies her own victimization, and that would open her up to civil lawsuits.

Maybe I heard her wrong. What do you think?

There's nothing wrong with being proud of one's own country. There's nothing wrong with telling people that you think your country is great.

I watched some "travel guide" show last night where a bunch of wogs and barbie doll women went to Japan to experience the culture and give a review on it, but they pretty much ruined it for me by messing around and not taking it seriously. I'll still go eventually but I'll be thinking twice before saying or doing anything.

You can be proud of your country just don't let that pride go to your head.

There is no such thing as a "greatest country in the world." Pretty much all of them are a constantly evolving work-in-progress, only ceasing to change when overtaken by another or experiences a full societal collapse.
