At times, I realize that I support Japanese sports teams or players because I know that some players are challenging at overseas. I experienced similar things before,. Also I have proud to some Japanese foods. ( I can not stand to see westernized Japanese foods)
I always cherish the beauty of Japanese culture which you can’t see/feel nor experience in the western culture. Certain things about Japanese culture, I don’t accept nor appreciate, but as a whole it’s great culture. It’s nothing to protect, it’s in part of my nature.
Protective, no! I am an American born citizen. What I have a hard time with is when the Olympics are happening and we challenge Japan. I get just a little torn, because I love Japanese culture.(;*
Yeah I hate it when non J-friends try to educate me on Japanese food or culture I already know about…
all the time!
I just love every aspect of Japanese culture or tradition!
Especially, now that I am living abroad, I tend to do so even more…:)
I like the fact that everyone starts eating at the same time. Also “gochisosama” to show appreciation to the person who cooked the meal either at home or in a restaurant, and to the person who paid for the meal.
