The Top Ten

1 Racism

Remember what did Japan have done to China, North Korea, and South Korea back in World War 2? They believed that invading them is to make them feel more superior and rich. They viewed Chinese and the two Koreans as inferior people and stealing their natural resources to Japan to make factories across the whole country is to make their economy increased up to building more military firepowers including navy ships and warplanes and to make their country to feel more richer and superior in the world. But that got change since the United States dropped the two powerful atomic bombs because President Harry S Truman believed that is to make Japan to surrender quickly. After Nagasaki and Hiroshima was both being nuked, Japan decided to end the war by signing the treaty with America. I'm Japanese, and to the people of China and the Korean peninsula, I am very sorry for what my country has done to make all of you people feel very suffered from the brutal Japanese occupation. Today, I'm very ...more

To the people of South Korea, there is something that I wanted to tell you about. Don't get mad at the user name nipponnjinn. He just trying to make you looked like a fool and that was just a lie. We, the younger Japanese generations, do not hate all of you. Please understand what we feel very sorry about your country being invaded by us back in World War 2. I'm not lying, there is no reason to hold your grudges against us. Blame the government for that. They are the one responsible for that. I'm Japanese, but I was born and raise in America. I'm much more open minded person and I like to learning Asian foreign cultures. I'm not one of these rude arrogant stupid people from Japan. I love and respect Korean culture. I will do anything to help all South Korean people like you and be on your side no matter what. Just forget it about them. They just trying to make them feel more superior and make their country Japan to feel having more power.

Japan is the worst country to lived in. I am black and shame on the Japanese people. They always think themselves as superior to other races and think that their country is more advanced than America. They always have deep hatred towards Korean people and I feel deeply hurt from that. Japanese people are just the worst human beings in the world.

To the people of China and South Korea, do not visit places in Japan like Osaka. Because people in Osaka has a very strong hatred towards Chinese and Korean people. There is one incident last October on 2016 one year that a 13 year old Korean boy name Shin was beaten in the public by a Japanese man in his 20s for speaking Korean to his family and there was another similar incident that two Korean female tourists were being harassed by Japanese men on camera and one of them yelled "She speaks Korean! Die Korea! ". To all people of China and South Korea, please visited Tokyo, because it is very safe and there are so many foreigners living in Tokyo like you guys. I'm white American person and I feel deeply hurt and feel very sorry for you guys when South Korea, one of America's closest allies, getting mistreatment by other Japanese people and don't respect and don't treat you guys like human being.

So please, AVOID CONFRONTATION WITH PEOPLE IN OSAKA! Because you will likely lose ...more

2 Suicide Rates

Japan's suicide rates are some of the highest in Asia, along with South Korea. This is because of stress caused by overworking in both adults in children. The education system is more strict in Japan, and things cost much more there, leading to the overworking problem. - ethanmeinster
