Japan and America/Britain are an opposing positive field, meaning that both cultures are fascinated with each other, such as Beckham in Tokyo, or Nintendo. Japan is just like any other place, so i dont feel that i should think of the people any differently, or that they're better or worse.
They're just like you and me.
By the way, using chopsticks is such a pain. i dont know how asian toddlers can do it but i can't!
