i like that it is in the northern hemisphere.

i also like how they can not pronounce the letter "L".
eg: "they hold their erections every 3 years" (they hold their elections every 3 years)

"due to the abundant rooting, rocks have been made raw in the city" (due to the abundant looting, locks have been made law in the city")

when a japanese girl returns from her childhood in the middle east and is asked to describe her experience there she says "Iraq Arabia!!" (i lack a labia (genital mutilation))

passionate people there describe themselves as "rusty" (lusty)

they like to live "wrong " (long)

etc....
there are so many semantic ideas that can be considered if you substitute an "l" with an "r".

there is " much lice in her labia" (there is much rice in arabia)
(i know that is a corruption of an earlier one i said)

i am getting tired.

i like how japanese people copy other peoples ideas and mass produce them so they are affordable.
i like how they deep fry lettuce leaves in a tempura batter so that i can eat healthy lettuce with some level of satisfaction.

The author Haruki Murakami, who comes from Japan. I stumbled across The Wild Sheep Chase and after reading that I made it my kission to read every book he has ever written. I now have a little Haruki Murakami library. Amazon alerts me every time he writes another book so I can keep up.

I love their clothes - these new and kimonos. They have great style and fashion sense.
I like Geisha make up. Sometimes I do similar (more gothic, but still in Geisha style).

I became interested in general with the asian culture when I was far too young to understand it. Japanese culture and indian culture especially. I didn't know Anime existed until I knew Toonami existed. But I enjoyed the fantastic colors and culture of the upmost respect for everyone. However, I prefer to adapt a much more open mind to people's beliefs and culture with this respect, where as this isn't really considered necessary and the japanese have a class system, something I'm not fond of. I just really enjoy the spiritual aspects the most.

i like their gardens, especially all the symmetry they contain, because i like gardening in general. i also think the paper houses they used to have are interesting. i wonder who originally thought of them :?:

i used to have one of those about ten years ago and used to prune it every month to keep it small.

i love taking care of plants. plants always give instead of take and they are always so peaceful.

well, i just love japan. i mean...they're my favorite humans. i love the fact that they kept me safe in vietnam. while in basic training i was shown a film captured after ww2. it was japanese torture techniques. just little things, like sticking a high pressure hose up a guy's butt and watching as they swelled and literally came apart. and, and, how they would have prisoners tied down tightly and would skin them while they thrashed about. oh the creativity. no way i would let myself be captured after seeing that.

i love how they treat animals. along with norway, japan kills whales for fun and profit. they even carve before they're dead. such lovely people. and let's not forget dolphins. the only country that allows wholesale dolphin slaughter. what other group of humans could pull that off. dolphin appetizers....yum, yum.

such lovely humans.

what don't i like about about the japanese? i don't like the fact that they gave up so easily after only two little bomb attacks! surely they could've held out for 20 or 30 little explosions. in fact, ww2 could've lasted for 10 or 15 years longer.

i
