My definition of my ethnic group, well mostly, will and might be different from other people's definition. I know that a lot of Japanese people, well, a lot in Japan are prejudice to other Races, including the people who are part of Japan, which includes Okinawans, which is what I am, Okinawan/Japanese, and a tiny bit of Chinese. I was born in Hawaii, mind you, so my facts won't be totally straight. There is the language, and the people. The language consists of Hiragana, Katakana, and the hardest of them all Kanji, Kanji though, has different levels. But, Kanji was taken from the Chinese, or the Chinese style of writing, as was Korean, if I'm not mistaken. Hiragana and Katakana are certain strokes taken from Kanji, and you usually want to do it in the correct stroke order, yes, there is a stroke order.

Now, if we're talking about the ethnic group, we have many spread out all over the world. America, Japan(obviously), China(maybe), South Korea(maybe), Europe, Russia, Canada, e.t.c, some are mixed, while others are close to full, and some, are just..yeah. Not all Japanese people are ugly mother fuckers, that is just a stereotype that some have come up with. Yes, they were a bad people, and losing their way during WW2, but why stereotype it on all people of Japanese ancestry? Didn't the Japanese-/Americans/ help out with fighting against their own ethnic group? And hey, Japanese people aren't the only one's that have done things bad. Americans have done a lot of bad things. So have Europeans, and Chinese, and Koreans, and all the other ethnic groups, some just more then others. Yes, Japanese think lowly of Koreans, Okinawans, and all the others, at least some, that does not go for all. My two best friends in the world are White and Korean. Amazing isn't it? When you open your mind, the friends you can get. And a better personality you will have. Yes, the Japanese did rape a lot of Chinese women during WW2, yes, they did bomb pearl harbor, but Americans annexed the land of Hawaii, Americans with some other foreigners also made Hawaiians the minority of their OWN land. I, in my mind, would think that just as bad. Do not blame us for things we HAVE not done, if someone has DONE something, sure blame them. But, it is rude to group all of us together. Even if you group us as Asians, it's still rude and offensive. Maybe not to all, but to some it is. Eh..that's it. Also, it is offensive to call someone a "Jap"..

One thing that is mostly connected with Japan, or Japanese people is/are anime. I doubt that many people in Japan are like the people in America with anime. :/
junk, adult, prostitute, ass, nasty, evil, scamp, excrement, somebody's definition. Very rude, and not all Japanese people are like that.

apparently this has become a place to diss the japanese which, speaking as an english-japanese, is quite funny actually as obviously some of you are incredibly ignorant and have probably never been to japan in your life. It is an awesome country which has an amazing unique culture like every other country in the world...and yes, that includes China and Korea. It has very beautiful temples, yummy food, quirky gadgets that make you re-think the japaneses' sanity and some very cool people...some japanese people are reserved, but sometimes, once you get them to open their shell they can be as fun and crazy as yourself. However most are not overly affectionate and seem to think it’s necessary to say ‘please’ and thank you’ as many times as possible. Some adore manga and anime, drinking sake, karaoke bars etc. The Japanese are proud of their country, but haven’t they a right to be? I think many work way too hard, but I guess it hasn't really harmed them as they have made Japan one wicked place to go and visit. In all, it’s difficult to quite sum up a Japanese person without mentioning their culture...it seems to go hand in hand.
japanese ads are the worst ever, but bless them, they do try!

Something that is from Japan, i.e. people, products, language, whatever.

Abroad from Japan, Japanese people can be easily distinguished by the camera they ALWAYS wear around the neck. They appear mostly in clusters taking pictures of some old unimportant buildings some travellers' guide told them about.

Japanese products are also easily distinguishable, as they are ALWAYS technologically superior to the equivalent product in your own country. Especially Japanese toilets are the shit! XD

The Japanese language is kewl as well and comes with sub-titles most of the time. They pretend not to have the letter 'L', but actually speak the letter 'R' like an 'L', so that in the end they suck at pronouncing the letter 'R'.

Non-Japanese dude: Meet my dog! He's great, but it's annoying when he barks and chases cats.
Japanese dude: I programmed my rittre dog to ignore non-human creatures and not to bark at arr.
Non-Japanese dude: O_o

Non-Japanese dude: WTF?! Why isn't here any toilet-paper?
Japanese dude: You don't need toiret-paper, the toiret creans your ass automaticarry.
Non-Jap: SWEET!!

Non-Jap: Hey, wanna play with me some games on my brand-new PS2?
Japanese: My PS946 > your PS2
Non-Jap: Ahh, fuck off!

People or objects that originates from Japan.

...and if that definition gets a thumb down, it’s probably because you are racist against them; usually for no reason other than your unwillingness to accept their economical success (or envy in some cases), hatred from what they have done in the past when you yourself are ignorant about what many other countries have done to Japan and other countries (I am not saying what Japan did in the past isn't wrong, but seriously, don’t base your opinions on tales of some drunk before actually checking its reliability from a good source), and trying to look cool by trashing the Japanese produced entertainment (such as animes or Video Games) without ever experiencing them or knowing that there are more to Japan’s culture than what you see in stores and TVs (Venturing into the outside world or researching helps), that is called being shallow.
That person is Japanese.

the state of considering oneself nihonjin, a person of the empire of the red sun, or the language, nihongo日本語, tongue and pen of the red lighted kingdom below.
Nihon, or, Nippon, is the Japanese word for japan and all its brought about chains of colonies and kingdoms descended from conquerors and immigrants dating back some millions of years, or thousands, according to western references descended from European book burners and historical thieves and counterfeiters, as the Japanese would say, for using their OWN historical archives, and storytellers. The idea that a million million authors like the ref., 'greek, Homer' would not be credited by Japanese people, is unheard of, or mocked or responded to violently and vehemently, by these said japanese historians and scholars.
"To speak Japanese, nihongo, one must forget the use of one set of dictionary definitions, and learn to read and listen in kanji ideals, likening to the fact that one word, in the course of others, beside it, can paint infinite definitions, for its use not alone, but often well associated with olde japanese poems and ideals."
"The Japanese people, nihonjin, have long believed themselves to be the really, really, really interesting counterparts to everybody else's idea of broken languages, for in theirs will repair yours, quite readily, and many and more japanese people believe this to be true, always, for their languages have existed for untold, by some, but existed for millenia uncounted for countless ages, outside any modern calendar"
