The American Dilution 15 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: -583  
I get frustrated with the dilution of Japanese culture with American influences.
(I suspect it is happening to many countries..)
Most Japanese I have spoken to think America is cool.. and yet have never been there and seen the reality of it..
Their entire perception is from TV and Hollywood.
Baseball (and the ubiquitous baseball cap) are everywhere, T-shirts with American logos, American accents anytime we hear English (radio DJs, public address systems), the occasional huge American car, American flags in the wierdest of places..

It is disappointing because Japan is a great place with it's own unique old and modern culture and it is a shame to see so many young people thinking another country's culture is "cooler" when they don't actually know the reality of it.. just a facade image.
I suppose it is irreversible and will only get worse...
