3026The national character of Japan

What kind of image of Japan do you have? For example, samurai, Mt.Fuji, cherry blossoms and so on. Japan has a lot of nature and historical things. However, this time I want to talk about the national character.
Generally speaking, the Japanese are a peace-loving people, so we avoid struggles. Now, we don’t like to resolve international conflicts by force nor arms. We don’t kindle another country’s flag. I think that we have a spirit of selfless hospitality. For example, almost lost articles can return to an owner. I have lost my pass case twice. Someone brought to the office of lost articles. In foreign countries, lost articles seldom return to an owner. Japan is safer than others countries.
However, Japanese are difficult to express their opinions to others. In an international conference, Japan receives the least amount of praise in the world. We Japanese need to push themselves about the power of voice. If Japan remarks actively, the world will change something.

    I think Japanese people have many good points. But Japanese people have to tell others what do they think. Japanese people have many points to change.
