Someone with a prominent interest in japan or japanese pop culture. Whether through music, japanese drama, anime, manga, language, art, history etc..

Being a japanophile does not make one a sociophobe or one without other interested -.-'

It can be someone who begins enjoying japanese popculture and extending themself to learning the language and more about the culture and way of life. Many even hope to live or visit the country.

Can even be one learning the japanese language for a considerable amount of time, into fluency.
-------------------
Japanophile: I'm really interested in japanese culture
...I think i'm going to self learn the language :D
Perhaps even go teach english there...what an experience!

Person 1: Woah your playlist is full of random characters...uh...what?

Japanophile: they are some really good bands/artists..have a listen :)

If ur someone obsessed with japanese culture or anything that has to do with japan then ur a japanophile.But,it dose'nt mean that u r a looser or a reject,watch anime every day,have friends that r only japanophiles etc.U can have allot of friends and not be reject or a looser and still be a japanophile,get my point?People often tend to think that a japanophile is somekind of reject who has a room filled with anime posters and accesories and also wears anime clothes...but that's not true!!!That person should be treated like any other person the difference is that he/she has different tastes...that's all!!!

One who praises Japan. A japanophile might listen to Japanese music, enjoy anime, surf 4chan, and maybe even have a fetish for hentai.
For example, me. I do everything listed above, and more.
1: I call myself 'Hand Hanzo' as a hip-hop recording name and street alias. Hanzo is a Japanese name.
2: I love anime and have a hentai fetish myself. I'm especially a big fan of yaoi.
3: I love Japanese music, my favorite band is L'Arc~en~Ciel, a pop-rock band that sounds WAY better than any band in America. Seriously, they fucking rule.
4: I am a resident of the 4chan imageboards, usually /b/, the Random board.
5: I wish to one day go to Japan, and see it all for myself. The dope ass bands, the yaoi, the penis festivals, everything.
