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.
Japan? is basically used in replacement of I don't know?
it's just better to say becuse japan is cool, i first heard this used by kezza.
"What are you up to later?"
A nation in east Asia composed of 4 main islands; and hundreds, if not thousands, of smaller islands. Much of the land is mountain, so people are largely restricted to limited areas to live. Current population is approximately 127 million, with a per capita GDP of $29,400 (2004 estimate). This places it as the 21st richest country per capita, just behind the Netherlands.
Japan's history is long, with a ruling family which has been in place longer than any other in the world. Japan was an isolationist country until Commodore Matthew Perry presented Japan with Fillmore's letter. Afterwards, Japan quickly modernized and militarized, and won the respect of Europe after it defeated Russia in the Russo-Japanese war. In the following years Japan invaded Manchuria, Korea, and eventually parts of China. During this time, the Japanese came to be known and feared for being especially brutal (examples include the rape of Nanking, where the Japanese killed over 200,000 civilians and noncombatants) The United States cut off trade with Japan in response, which hurt Japan's military ambition. This led Japan to bomb Pearl Harbor, and bring the United States into World War 2. The war ended with Japan surrendering unconditionally after nuclear bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and with the Soviet Union invading Manchuria and the Sakhalin Islands. Japan was left a ruin, with its economy a shambles. However, the following four decades saw a time of tremendous reconstruction and e...
Japan, a country often not seen for what it really is. It is one of the world's largest powers, however, many think everyone wears kimono, watches anime, practices karate everyday, and eat only rice. There is much more to it than that.
Due to being an island, Japan's main source of food is seafood. Sushi is one of Japan's specialties and can be made in a variety of ways. Popular dishes include Nigiri, Gunkan, and Norimaki. (source : japan-guide.com)
Another type of popular Japanese foods are its sweets. Some of the most famous are Pocky (bisquit sticks covered with a type of icing), Pucca (sea-creature shaped pretzle-like snack filled with chocolate), and Ramune Candies (made after a popular drink called Ramune that's very sweet and comes in a glass bottle with a marble in the neck). These items are shipped around the world and can commonly be found in a local store.
In the common Japanese household, many things are different from what you may be used to. When you enter one's home, you take off your shoes at a front square, switching to slippers (common colour is green).
When you need to use the restroom, there is another type of slippers available called "Toilet Slippers". They are often decorated with cute characters but I believe the most popular ones I've seen have a silhouette of a man and woman.
There is a kind of Japanese toilet that a lot of people aren't used to. Most of it is "in-ground", so for use, you must squat, fa...

The only country in the world that has masturbating
A guy masturbated for 9 hours during a masturbating contest in Japan.
Japan is a very strange but interesting country. A country that has ugly-looking cars, vending machines that sell porn(or hentai in some cases), underwear, or supposedly internal organs, has the largest metropolitan area in the world(Tokyo), anime, has pachinko, and has seafood. Lots and lots of seafood.
Person 1: Come on, we need to catch our plane and head home.
Person 2: No! I want to stay in Japan so I can keep playing pachinko!
(Verb) To splash someone non consensually with a large amount of water, sometimes to the extent that they have a meltdown over it.
I got Japaned on my run today. An 18 wheeler going by me went through a puddle and I didn't move away in time.
Kid at pool: Yo watch me Japan Kevin! (jumps in pool next to Kevin who is sunbathing)
Kevin: What the hell kid!?
Kid: Don't have a melt down over it.
