The difference is those gaijin speak fluent Japanese.
I don’t hate foreigner. Only fun thing counts, not nationality.
Ah, and language skill…
Well, you shouldn't go to Japan if you don't speak Japanese.
I agree, but the JET program pulls in heaps of people who can't.
Japan is for Japanophiles...
Eh, everyone has their stupid obsessions. Anime, Video Games, Sports, Cars, Liquor, Idol/Actor Worship, Sex, etc. And to some degree, we all needlessly belittle each other because we don't conform to the "norm" of society perpetuated by the media which in itelf is pretty shallow and stupid. Just do what you want to do and damned if the people around you don't like it. As long as you'e enjoying it, noone else matters. It's not like you actually care about the nameless masses anyway.
Hop on a plane and go. Airfares aren't that expensive. You'll have fun. Just go for a holiday.
Holy crap, this thread again.
Thanks >>130, now I'm all nostalgic for 4-ch's early days.
This entire thread. I have no words.
