A country that's very much overrated or misunderstood.

Japanese school system isn't 'superior' to American system--in fact, it's more harmful than benefitial to the nation. With such an emphasis on reaching the next level of education, the only thing that the school focusses on is to get into the good high school or university. The amount of pointless studies is so ridiculous that frankly, it's ruining the country.

Do you really think that Jyuku is a good idea? Well... let's look at the youth suicidal rates again.

The government is so tangled with yakuza that it's not even funny.

Let's not go into the music as it happens to be the second cousin of shit. Sorry, five robotic men standing in a line with a mic in their hand and odd hand motions with monotonous songs isn't quite music. And I'm talking about SMAP.

Perfecting the art of toilets might be funny, but it also quite ironically shows how warped the country is. Did you know that the Tokyo area has a Jesus-themed cafe? With bloody crusifixes? How does that NOT show how corrupt and ruined the country is?

The language also has three systems of reverence. Obviously, this has done nothing to strengthen the Japanese people's backbone. Blind, mindless worship, that's what it is.

Quite simply, Japan is a country that's been in trouble ever since Matthew Perry came knocking so politely on their door so to speak. With cannons.

Oh, and he was a yank. Go figure. Bloody xenophiles gotta learn to stay in their own fucking turf--ruin your own country, and keep out of the rest of the world!
Matthew Perry was an American who opened up Japan. Look at where it's now. God bless America.

An East asian country famous for its technology, cars, pop culture and animations. Maintains a lively music culture. has a number of high quality merchandises which must be found among much of the garbage that also resonates from their companies. a once eastern nation it is now becoming increasingly westernized. responsible for many past atrocities and the world's leader in child porn. however they are not worse than america, they are just more known for it. a large amount of their negative qualities can be said to come from their forcede opening of borders by america and their westernization. they have alot of positive qualities and alot of negatives, like any other culture
Japan is a cool country.

To cheat, especially in football (soccer). Derived from Japan's games in the 2006 World Cup, when the Japanese team always pretended to be injured so the referee would help them.
Those Italians really japaned the Socceroos when the referee gave them a penalty kick! That guy was really selling that foul.

A country where a lot of the best video games, tv shows, and technology come from. Many things from Japan either never got translated or were deemed "inappropriate"(cough, bullsh*t, cough). Take yugioh for instance, there was a season 0 considered too violent for children.( WHY NOT JUST AIR IT ON AT NIGHT?.) Graphic novels, or manga and anime also had to be edited before getting here.
1: Hey dude, you know a lot of anime and manga that came from Japan had to be edited before gettin' here?
2: Japan makes some of the best things and we get the edited crap? Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, bullsh*t.

An island nation located in Northeast Asia.
History begins with what is known as Yamato Japan, thought to be established by the colonists from Southeastern Korea, after they crossed the seas to Japanese islands around 4th century. Stayed in constant internal wars and in isolation from Korea and Japan after the early Yamato period, establishing eventually its distinct system of bakahu and samurais. There was not much interactions outside the island, except the two invasions from the Mongols and Koreans in 12th century and the Seven Years War against Korea in 15th century. Modernized and rose as a "Great Power" in the 19th century, invading China and Korea. It was completely destroyed however by WWII, but recovered as a result of the Korean War of 1950s and now stands as one of the world's major economic powers.
Japanese people can't pronounce any word in any language except Japanese.
