Top Ten Worst Things About Japan

The land of sushi, anime, Takeshi's Castle, and the rising sun!

The Top Ten

1 Racism

We all agree that Imperial Japan was a very brutal country (in the worst way, because I feel very sorry for people who were killed), but the Japanese have apologized to other countries of Asia. However, other countries were on the same level once, like the Soviet Union and the Ottoman Empire. - BorisRule

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.

To all of those who are talking about japan being bad back in world war 2, I agree that Japan has done some awful things but they changed. Do you guys understand that things can change from bad to good or enemy to Ali? I know that they did some awful things like bomb Pearl Harbor but they changed.

2 Hentai

This is why Japan should never exist

Hentai sucks. Even if you look past all the sex and tentacle stuff (how the hell did something like THAT become greenlighted? ), most hentai anime/manga have very shallow, empty plots, usually low quality art and/or animation, bland characters with no development, and tend to be too short in length. Sadly a ton of doujinshi (fan manga based on popular anime/manga usually) are like that too, and I fear exposure of that could ruin/taint one's perception of a beloved series, like I've even seen people do this out of Miyazaki's work like Nausicaa and I say whoever drew that, may they be condemned for the rest of their lives. - SailorSedna

Is the worst Anime & Manga.
Why is Boku No Pico so popular its about a pedophile, and it only had 3 episodes.

Do not on any circumstances watch this. It will probably make you throw up and ruin your childhood. - ethanmeinster

3 Suicide Rates

I watched a politician saying that the suicide rate for gay and bisexual guys here are 6 times higher than straight people. And she was just smiling when she was talking about it.

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

This is the biggest problem!

This is so upsetting, the pay should be higher :(

Why everything is expensive

5 Crowds

Indians don't hate the Japanese. That guy is a troll.

I am from india and I hate japan, not only me, every indian hates japan very much, we indians are more superior than japanese. Japanese don't know to speak english. Japanese are stupid idiots.

Almost every indian I have ever met are the most stupid and uneducated people I have ever come across - LunacyLuna

Welcome to Sardine Express where all of the Crowds in the subway act like sardines all because of the train's stuck.

In Tokyo, subway stations have "pushers" that pack the passengers into a train like sardines in a can. Shinjuku Station is the most crowded subway station in the world. - ethanmeinster

6 Population Decline

Most Japanese will not have children because of how economically damaging it would be to care for another person. Also, a lot of people are now choosing to not get married or reproduce. - ethanmeinster

7 Disasters

Japan sits on the Ring of Fire, so it's vulnerable to earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, landslides, and liquefaction. There's also typhoons, such as Typhoon Tip, the largest typhoon in recorded history. - ethanmeinster

8 Participation in World War II

Well, yeah. Nobody likes Imperial Japan. :/ - BorisRule

Whenever I mention to the anime addicted people that Japan sided with Hitler in the war, they act like they didn't know. maybe it's not Japan which is at fault, the Australian education system better get on this.

Reminders of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the brutal attacks of other Pacific nations still haunt the Japanese today. It's taboo to talk about it. - ethanmeinster

Come on.. that's so long ago

11 The Language

It's really difficult to learn. That's why there's all those mistranslations to English on signs in Japan. - ethanmeinster

26 Boku No Pico Boku No Pico Boku no Pico is an anime series of three OVA episodes created by Katsuhiko Takayama. It was released to DVD on September 17, 2006.

I know the 4kids dub can be Pico becomes a girl, Chico stays as a boy and Tamotsu is the father of the daughter. Its about high school love, the daughter has a crush on Chico but he thinks she is disgusting, but he befriends her later on.

It was legal to make three episodes.

27 Disturbing Children's Entertainment.

Now that's the point of 4kids even if you hate it.

I once saw the uncensored version of the 1980s Dragon Ball which looked completely inappropriate. I saw a young Goku napping on a girl's beaver (you all knew what I meant by that) and then slapping it. And in another scene I saw Bulma flipping the bird (it also doesn't that there's one episode where she's barenaked despite being 16).

All I can say is I'm proud to be a kid who grew up in America.

35 Fugu Fugu Fugu is the Japanese word for pufferfish and is also a Japanese dish prepared from the meat of pufferfish. Pufferfish are deadly and if the fish is prepared incorrectly it can lead to death (in fact there are numerous deaths reported in Japan each year from the consumption of this delicacy). One pinhead more.

Hey lets eat poison.

36 Tamotsu (Mokkun)
37 Pokemon Pokemon Pokémon, abbreviated from the Japanese title of Pocket Monsters and currently advertised in English as Pokémon: The Series, is a Japanese anime television series, which has been adapted for the international television markets.
