I've always been fascinated by the Japanese culture. Ever since I was a kid, I always marvelled about samurais, sushi, anime, tanabata and everything connected to the Japanese culture. There are even days I wished I was born Japanese! ^_^ I am not Japanese but I can speak their language quite well. What do you think of Japanese culture?

Yeah. After two atomic bombs dropped onto their major cities, they have risen up to be one of the most successful countries in the world today. I really like your way of describing it as like a phoenix. It suits it very well. =) You get a best response for that. =)

I'm fascinated by their gardens, the bonsai, The use of stones and waters to symbolize so many things. I also love their foods but too costly in Japan. I would also like to learn to speak their languge but have no time.

i think that is what they call 'Zen'. It is really soothing ang stress-relieving. =) The cost of living is Japan is quite high. But it is also from Japan where the oldest people come from. Japanese lifespan is longer than your average person. =)

Learning the language is fairly easy if you ask me. It isn't as complicated as other languages. =) Give it a shot. It's definitely worth it. =)

i find japanese culture one of the most interesting around the world. japanese people are really hospitable, loving and disciplined. The food, really great sushis, nabe, sushimako everything..very healthy and delicious. Their art really amazed me those origamis, manga even the way they see nature as shown in their paintings in one of the art gallery i visited. They are really talented. they have a really captivating culture but im still proud I am pinoy..LOL

I think they're very traditional when it comes to family and work. They cling to those traditions until now and they are very proud of it. Unlike in other countries that doesn't even know the value of culture.

Yeah. They still hold festivals that were done centuries ago. It gives them the atmosphere of being modern and historic at the same time. Japanse people are disciplined and polite. =)

I really don't know much about their culture, but from what I've heard and seen, I have to say: 1. They are polite and that's something I really appreciate. 2. They can be formal and I think that's needed because being overly casual or familiar just seems rude sometimes. 3. I like their discipline. You will find them dedicated to what they do and I think that's admirable. 4. They think as a group - as in you don't find people just thinking of their area, or their house, but of a larger picture of their entire country itself.. you know, that basic thinking for everyone else as well. And well, I am not sure if this is relevant, but I love their imagination and their talent. I mean, their mangas, their stories, their animes, their music.. I really like it!

The Japanese culture really is unique isn't it? Maybe thats what you became when your country secludes itself for years. =) A bit of history there.. :D
