Part of that is the language problem. The other is because Japan is wacky. :)

One of the things I've noticed during my international travels is that the countries that criticize us the loudest are also trying their best to adopt the worst parts of our culture for themselves.

I lived in Japan for 2 1/2 years back in the late 60's early '70s and had quite a collection of Japanese cultural and linquistic faux pas. My favorite was 1970's Seiko watch Season's Greetings which were plastered all over Japan .......... a purple backgound with watermellon pink Star of David enclosing "Merry Christmas." One would think with all the gazillion hours that the Japanese spend on learning English that they could produce a few competent translators. Well, at least the directions for the products have improved!

All over Europe you see T-shirts and apparel with meaningless American words and/or phrases.

And all over this country are similar misuses of Oriental characters (they apparently rather look like art to us...). Those who are fluent in the language will point out similar hillarity.

The thing is I don't think Japan does criticize America, and they embrace your culture... no... they worship and impersonate it more than any other nation on Earth.

Apparently only the intelligent tourists come here. The stupid ones go somewhere else. Birds of a feather and so forth...

For those that haven't, try www.engrish.com lots of funny stuff. I have some Japanese injection molding machinery written in Japlish. Good thing the machines work better than the spelling/phrasing. Of course, I used to have some German machines and those manuals are in Germlish. (worse than the Japanese manuals).

If I had the means to spend a couple weeks in Japan I'd already be on the plane right now. The whole culture over there, both historic and pop are just too cool......

I used to repair printing presses in a commercial printing shop. Of course the presses were German so the manuals were in German. Luckily we had a German expatriot working there so we'd go to her for help. According to her, even in German the manuals didn't make sense. She'd literally translate and then we'd try to figure out what she'd just said.
