A big stereotype that people give to other people who have a strong interest in the Japanese culture. I am a Japanophile and I don't do/am the following:

-Eat sushi every day
-Watch anime
-Pale and overwieght
-No life
-Cosplay
-Think that if I go to Japan I will be welcomed as a god. I am perfectly conscient that they are racist.

Japanophiles with the above caracteristics should be called Wapanese instead of Japanophile because they are a shame to the people who really like the Japanese culture for the GOOD reasons.
-Hey man, I really like the Japanese culture. I would like to live there someday to see how it is. I guess I am a Japanophile.

-YOU FUCKIN WAPANESE ANIME LOVIN' NO SOCIAL LIFE BASTARD GET OFF ME! GO EAT SOME FUCKIN TOFU STUPID IDIOT AND GET A LIFE.

-Eww....Ok

Japanophilia refers to the appreciation and love of Japanese culture, people or history. In Japanese, the term for Japanophile is "shinnichi" (親日), with "親" "shin" (しん) equivalent to the English prefix 'pro-', and "日" "nichi" (にち), meaning "Japanese" (as in the word for Japan "Nihon" (日本)). The term was first used as early as the 18th century.
Lafcadio Hearn, also known as Koizumi Yakumo, (1850 -1904) was a notable scholar and author well known for his strong interest in Japanese culture. He could be regarded as a Japanophile.
