Top Ten Reasons to Love Japan

The Japanese are often a subject of bad things-- like for instance, harakiri, "racism" issue and the like-- but I'll prove everyone wrong that the Japanese aren't the way you think.

The Top Ten

1 Respect, courtesy and politeness are rooted and instilled in their language.


Excuse me, person who said that people are rude. I am Japanese and I lived in Japan for most of my life and the people their are so nice to me. I go back to visit there once a year and I never get sick of it. Even if Japanese people do curse, they wouldn't do it in front of tourists or guest because they know it's impolite

Japanese are the most respectful, polite, civilized, and modest people that I have known so far. No wonder when they go everywhere, people like to see them with awe.

Japan is just amazing, everything is clean, professonnal. I love japan for all

2 The environment is almost Utopian.

I love Japan too!

I used to live in Japan and let me tell you it was Utopian to me. Shootings at school almost never happen and it's so safe that students from first grade normally walk to school with their friends. The culture is awesome and you should try the food even though they sound disgusting

I love Japan! It's my lifelong dream to go to Japan. There is so much I'd like to know about their culture! - Discord

No graffiti, clean streets, beautiful sights... yep that's Utopian.

3 Anime

Anyone, I don't care how old you are, can appreciate manga style animation. The creativity and character structures make things like One Piece honestly put things like Star Wars to shame.

I'm going there once I move out my moms house!

Man I love me them anime there 100 times better than American cartoons. - ZZDOORAL

Ahh-Nahh-Mayy! I love ir!

5 The Japanese people are one of the most beautiful in the world.

I have seen a lot of Japanese and I can say that their beauty is very kind and makes you want to feel very comfortable. Plus they are very polite and are the most stylish people I have ever met. Even if they don't wear extreme cloths.

100% true. Even the elderly dress well and look beautiful.

Their beauty will make you insecure~even at the most simple way of their style, you can see that they don't need to decorate themselves heavily. - sdravenson

Personally both men and womenthete are angelic looking

7 Rudeness is a taboo.
8 Sushi

One of the world's most tastiest foods, but it's simply just raw fish and rice. It's so tasty yet so simple. - ethanmeinster

My brother and I LOVE sushi! It's our favorite food!

Never ate seaweed and don't want to really or octopus or clams

Best sushi anywhere!

9 Tokyo
10 Theft or stealing is a rarity.

I always feel safe in Japan and don't need to worry about closing my bag properly or something getting taken from my pocket. It's great to feel so safe and just enjoy the country.

I heard that an envelope containing 50,000 yen ( $ 500 ) was dropped at a bus stop. It was turned in anonymously to a police station and the person who dropped it was able to retrieve it. Any rewards offered to the anonymous hero was turned down. There are many cases like this- wallets forgotten on train seats are turned in, cellphones are still there if you leave them on a bench. I personally had an experience when I was younger. I dropped my toy on the ground in front of someone's house without noticing. On my way home, it had been propped up on their fence, instead of still being left on the ground for people to trample on. Japan is an awesome place!

I haven't lost anything in Japan...ever

11 Technology

Japanese technology is amazing! - PositronWildhawk

Japanes technology is mind-blowing, advanced, well-made, well-engineered, well-maintained, refined, quirky, and reliable. Japanese technology is one of my favorites alongside with American and German technologies.

American technology is creative, innovative, stunning, mind-blowing, cool, inventive, and outstanding.

German technology is well-made, well-engineered, durable, high quality, superb, and well-maintained.

The technology kinda looks like space technology! (i'm still just a little kid, so I have... Well, imaginations)

The best technology in the world! - Ananya

12 The Japanese are very disciplined in every aspect of life.

I'm Japanese and I don't know if I'm disciplined properly because I lived in Australia for most of my life. For all I know, the schools discipline you a lot and so do your parents

I wish American children could be like them. I'm Laotian American and I try so hard to be disciplined like the Japanese. I could both be proud of my heritage and try to be disciplined like the Japanese.

13 They gave us Nintendo

Without Nintendo, I'd die

Nintendo is life. Nintendo is love.

Rosalina & King DeDeDe are the two greatest Nintendo characters ever!

Nintendo is so awesome!

15 Japan created some awesome characters like Princess Daisy, Yoshi, Link, Rosalina and more.
16 Funny hair commercials featuring clapping mohawks
17 The Japanese are nature-loving people.

Never mind the bad sides of technologies~they're making some ways to make it eco-friendly and etc. - sdravenson

They always keep their environment as clean and as lovely as possible. I love on how the way they make their environment looks so comfortable.

Everything about them is great! - Ananya

18 Naruto, One Piece or Bleach

Naruto is the best classic manga ever. I love Sasuke

The big three of Shonen Jump.


19 They have a very unique entertainment and culture

I love the Japanese people who appreciate art and culture.
However, they are incureable racists that hate all non-Japanese people. They teach racism in their schools and the News shows call all foreign people GaiKokujin which means "Outside Person. " So they think that others do not have any rights (like we are animals not people). If you don't believe me, go to Osaka. They are the worst most violent people I have met in my life.

Hey! I'm Japanese and I have many friends from different cultures. And also "GaiKokujin" actually mean "other country person"

"gaikokujin" simply means "foreigner". It doesn't have any positive or negative meaning, it's just plain "foreigner". When we say "gaijin",it's short for "gaikokujin" but it sometimes has a bad meaning.

20 The Japanese are food-lovers.

Visited for a few weeks in April! The quality is outstanding...the food is the best I've ever had!
Sushi restaurants everywhere...I was never disappointed! I'll be going back for sure!
