Japan is one of my favorite countries, not only by tegnologia, it is by its culture, traditions and social development.

In each town they have its own traditions, they take care and respect to the old ones and they look for to promote the childhood.

In addition they worry about environment and they look for the form to solve the environmental and space limitations from the country.

I really want to go to Japan, of course in Spring because The Japanese cherry trees are in flower, and I dream see Japan in this season!!!

And I like the Animes, an the J-Pop.

I believe that Japan is a wonderful country

I have some friends who are Japanese, they are so nice and polite. In my impression Japan is a well-developed country with high technology development. I do love to Japanese language in order to know some Japanese girls, haha~ Taking to this point, when I went to Japan, I almost can not communicate to anyone, the local people, because of the very low degree of people can speak in English with me. I think itís the things which Japan needs to be improved.

I think it's a fantastic place (been there three times), and I've liked Japanese people wherever I've met them in the world.

Japan is currently killing 1000 whales a year for "research". They are not fooling anybody. The whales are being killed for meat that is sold on the market.
Until they stop killing whales, I have stopped buying anything made in Japan.
Apart from this one dishonorable blot on their nation, the Japanese are very admirable, interesting, courteous and friendly people.

Of course it's for research. They are researching which tastes better.

I love Japan, I visited there a couple of years ago and it was absolutely beautiful. There is such a big difference between the cities and the smaller towns - cities like Tokyo are so modern and full of new technology, but the smaller towns are more traditional and peaceful. It was such an interesting country to visit. I hope I can go back soon.

people from there are always very polite as I meet.But I prefer the english gentlman. Japenese politeness, I think, is a kind of too much.and many people in China hate Japan for the massacre in Nanjing in world war II.

I don't like Japan as the regard of their dishonesty to the history.I don't
mean that all Japanese are not good,i like most of them as they are good
mannered and hearted to everybody.However there are minority of them who even haven't the courage to envisage the past and refuse to apologise to the crime they have done.That really hurt our feelings.
I advise you to take up your so-called warrior spirit and admit the history
which will never ba changed and erased.
