“What Americans think of Japan”
This video shows several Americans answer to the questions about Japan.
The number of people are not many, so it’s just reference, but this video is very interesting.
I was so surprised people are so naive. I’m 16, but I can answer to these questions correctly. +43
I don’t understand how come they can answer like this.
We should consider the knowledge of respondents.
Only blacks can answer correctly. We still have hope! We still….. +56
Japanese have triangle shade, kimono and tie their feet to make them small… I have pain on my ears! It’s the mixture of stereotype! +4
Recent young generation surprise me. They even don’t understand who Kim Jong Il is… +3
People who say “Americans are ignorant”. Ask Japanese about US in Tokyo! We can’t have wit and smart answers!
Idea is very nice! It’s a nice entertainment! On contrary, “What Japanese think of US” should be interesting, too! :D
I was surprised one person didn’t know Japan is islands. Even they don’t know about atomic bomb, either!?
It’s a nice video, but at the same time, I felt a little sad. I want you to ask Japanese about US. I’m interested in the difference! :-) +3
One person have only stereotype… -_- +5
Aghhhh… I felt so bad about ignorant living in my country.
Living in Japan
It’s the end of the world….
Is it possible they don’t know Japan got the atomic bomb during WWII?!
Q If you go to Japan, what can you see?
A Many Japanese people…
I worked in Japan for a while. Standard Japanese don’t know about western well.
It’s sad. I think many Americans can answer correctly. But I know there are also many ignorant, too. As a comparison, I wanna know their knowledge about the other countries! It’s a very interesting video!
Oh no… People think Americans are idiots!
OMG. This video is too severe for Americans… +3
Only these people don’t know many things. If you ask the same question in Arabic countries, everyone should answer correctly!
I think the respondents are…. w It doesn’t mean all Americans are like the! +14
They are not ignorant. They just don’t know about Asian culture and history. +36
Girl with a straw hat is just tricking us… +4
I felt so bad by listening to the answer. America needs to fix the education system! +6
To be honest, I can’t judge who is Japanese, Chinese and Korean by appearance. It’s same if we can judge German, Russian and Austrian by appearance. They live in the same area, so they look similar. It’s normal. I think I can understand the difference of name, but I sometimes get confused between Chinese and Korean. Well, I should say that. I love Japan! +3
If I was American, I would feel very bad because they represent my own country. +5
These are not difficult questions. I felt so bad when I listened to their answers. But please understand. Not all Americans are like them! +8
That’s why many people hate American. There are many ignorant. They are not interested in the other countries! +21
For Asians who don’t know how Americans are ignorant, it should be a nice video. THis is a good medicine for nationalism, too. Many Asians have US as a standard, right? They should understand Americans’ knowledge about Asia, they can change their minds, “My country is the best”. +5
I just laughed a lot… They seem to be ignorant, but it might be because I’m interested in Japan and Asia. I may not know about other things they know. +6
