Shit like this is why I wonder why people want to live in japan so much. Pretty sure westerners fetishize it and don't realize that it's actually a kind of shitty country for non-japanese, and hard on native japanese too. They keep to themselves too. It's not that they're openly racist as much, but come on, it's obvious that they are at the very least in a supremacist mind space. Easy way to illustrate is the fact that japanese is one of the few widely spoken languages that never stemmed from another and has no transitional languages, only a straight line of japanese. That kind of culture hasn't left. Just because they sell shit to the west doesn't mean they are really friendly to us.
