I give props to Japan because after losing WWII they could build themselves back up and become one of the top technological countries.

Japan has the best food, great shopping and unlimited and top quality choices of entertainment. And the boys aren't too bad either.

Japanese people seem to be very hard-working and I think that's acknowledged all over the world. And Japanese music seems very conservative.

My impression of Japan is of this great car-making, car-exporting country. And the people seem to be pretty smart over there.

Japan has a really good customer service ethic. The food's also great and, of course, there's a lot of stylish fashion.

The fashion is very eclectic. It's mixed and layered. Japanese people are very polite -- that's my first impression of Japan.

I like Japanese animation and also Japanese punk music and fashion. I'm actually planning to take a trip to Japan soon.

Japan is a very safe country without much crime. Japanese are very modern, but they still respect and hold onto their traditions.

For what's considered to be such a conservative country, the Japanese people don't seem to be afraid to express themselves.
