OMG HE WAS SLEEPING WITH HIS NOSE JUST ABOVE WATER LEVEL
Japan > Everywhere else
This is Japan in a nutshell. Forget all the crazy stuff with the weird tv programs and the cosplaying—that’s just the outer shell that gets attention because it’s unusual. This, this is the beauty of the country. I’ve had little grandmothers chase me down because I dropped my shinkansen tickets. In amusement parks, the attendants do their upmost to get lost items (usually cardigans or kids’ shoes) back to the owners—before the owners even realize they’d lost said item(s). I’ve had complete strangers not only give my thorough directions but have offered to drive me to the place I needed to go.
It is so, so, so hard to go back to the States after you get the J-treatment. I mean, Japan has its downside (“What is this madness you call pizza???”), but the general attitudes of everyone—even the so-called hardcore yankees (two of whom who, on a blazing summer day, helped me find one of my schools when I was heinously lost in the labyrinth that is the neighborhood in which said school is located)—is the epitome of the mindset that I wish everyone would adopt. Because yelling at people gets you nowhere. And being able to empathize with people kinda helps make this country a really nice place to live in.

THIS IS THE MOST ACCURATE POST I’VE SEEN ON TUMBLR
I now want to visit Japan even more.
I always heard though that they treat anyone outside their race like shit though.
^ No? If they seem scared or ask questions it’s because they’ve never seen someone of that race probably. It’s more ignorance(lack of knowledge of a race OR the Japanese stereotype of a race) than it is “treating someone like shit”
Also there’s always bad people in any country so maybe you’ve only heard the stories about the bad people.
Aw thats really cute then and makes a lot more sense then people being treated improperly.
I had a great hour long conversation with some 80 year old man who just approached my friend and I at Asakusa temple. We talked exactly about this and he was like “I love people! I love meeting people! Japanese are just shy we don’t learn about people in school, that’s why I learned English after the war, I want to be your friend” it was a nice talk, and the younger generation has TV & internet now so they’re less ignorant imho.
Tons of schools do exchanges as well, it’s definitely different now than it was say 20-30 years ago.
