I'm a Japanese high school student and I'm 18, so I cannot talk in English well, sorry.
In Japan, people say "We have good culture, technology and our characteristics is nice!Our country is loved around the world!". However, one day I heard that foreigners talked about "The things I hate Japan and Japanese"...
I was so sad when I heard it, but I want to know the reason because Japanese too love our country to talk this topic.
Well,can I make you understood by my poor English?:(
I do! It's so cute and cool. Also, Touhou is my favorite series of games.
One american told me that japanese appeared to be loving the foreigners but in deep down japanese are hating foreigners so much. I don t really know as I am also an asian (currently in Russia). However from the perspective of Asian, Japanese is super self-protecting. Discriminating against asian speaking Japanese with thick accent in the working environment. Only the Japanese will get promoted. But surely this kind of self protection is not a bad thing tho.
One more thing, Japanese certainly produce tons of creepy porn too. I also think that as a Japanese male with normal appearance is fucking hard to lose a virginity too.( same thing happened in HK, I lost my V when I was 20 )
I think it tend to that young people love foreigners. My friend wanna marry foreigner because of cool!
But Japanese elderly people do not like because they are scary for elderly people...
