Hi SwissLemon,
I'm on tanuki's side: Lindt is my favourite. Kind of expensive, though :(

Welcome! :)

Rice, tea and sugar

My grandmother (now 75 years old) told me the other day about her youth and how she often visited her japanese friend(s). She told me about her and the family eating rice with tea, something I never heard of until that day (few weeks ago). Today, I saw the Otaku film :o (Train man) and there was thi...

Hair and society

I have been wondering about: 1- The acceptance of a hairy body in japanese society. How is a hairy person perceived in a bathhouse for example(or anywhere)? Are any discriminatory remarks to be expected (Someone like Chuck Norris, only without being a celebrity)? What about a full beard? 2- If someo...

RE: Flying Saucers

For example a common theme is that you can telepathically call UFOs to you (sometimes with the aid of suspicious ceremonies involving groups of people). Oh, I see: A parody of this was shown in the movie "Sakigake!! Cromartie Koukou" (not the anime). Then again, the whole movie is strange, as japan...

RE: Wishing to be Japanese

I do not wish to be Japanese, I rather wish to be accepted as the person who I am. I am "mixed" (or "blood-mixed", which is a very strange term that I just invented) with (1/8)Italian, (1/8)Spanish, (1/4)Portuguese, (1/4)German, (1/4)Austrian. But I have to say that I do not consider myself good-loo...

RE: Obesity In Japan

Since the question of "obesity in Japan being a big problem" was mostly answered with "there aren't many obese people in Japan (specially compared to US)", I would like to know how obese people are seen in Japan. I always heard rumours about Japanese people admiring really fat people; since everyone...
