you can marry your cousin in pretty much any country though i think, America and Canada included. also is it true the age of consent there is 13 if so... why? i mean really.

User avatar #56 - bizengaust (07/12/2014) [-]
That to which is what a lot of families from noble lines used to do and there are a lot of families in Japan that have been around since forever. These are the ones that tend to live in the traditional houses that you think of when Japan comes to mind, as they are passed down through the family. some tear down the old ones in favor of making new more modern ones though only leaving the original gate with the family name in place.

you pay for them in yen and they are around 10,000 yen each. That's about $82 American currency. I just stick to regular watermelons

In romaict situations OP is right, however, While making an anthropology documentary here in Tokyo I have found that Jpanese Poeople are much more touchy-feely than I thought.

1) Moms and daughters still hold hands even when the daughter is in here 30's. I mean, Tokyo has a fucking lot of people in it, but i see at least two mom and daughter groups a day talking and holding hands with one another.
2) High school children are a lot more comfortable with touching members of their own sex. (if they are best friends) I see both boys and girl leaping and jumping on the backs of their friends to say hello. I see guys hanging all over one another (in a friendly way- that while it would be considered fabulous and sparkly, it isn't in japan)

Here's an example: In Elfen Liedt there is a scene where MC asks his sister to go bring him a seashell or whatever. In return she asks to be patted on the head. Is that like some kind of reward system in there? Like instead of a cookie they give a pat on the head
User avatar #16 - bizengaust (07/11/2014) [-]
Japanese people are very formal and don't just go around hugging and touching all willy nilly so a pat on the head is a somewhat intimate gesture that shows they are very very pleased with you.

My father was offered a very good job and he wanted to give me a better life then I would have had in Russia so we moved to the states in my pre teens. It's one of those things that I understand more now as an adult then I could when I was younger. I really do appreciate the schooling I was able to get in the states.
User avatar #24 - mrsnowballs (07/11/2014) [-]
yeah gives you a new perspective on life doesn't it? But I moved to the states when I was in my teens so I guess our experiences might've been different.
User avatar #25 - bizengaust (07/11/2014) [-]
I think everyone has a different one. I came from a community where my family was all pretty much high five distance from each other so the change struck me very hard and I was unhappy for a long time which hindered my learning of the English language. Eventually I got better about it and continued to learn and found happiness in where I was.
User avatar #26 - mrsnowballs (07/11/2014) [-]
So I have to ask.... Do you still have a Russian accent or is it more Japanese now?
User avatar #28 - bizengaust (07/11/2014) [-]
I have a bit of one still yes. I don't hear it but everyone else around me can hear it as clear as day. To them it's very obvious that I'm a Russian trying their hardest to work their tongue around a Japanese accent. They can understand what I'm saying just fine but they know I'm not from there (obviously)

yeah they do....it doesn't bother me until someone points it out then I feel a wee bit embarrassed. I met him here actually when I went to tutor for a summer at his high school (he works as a science teacher) and we hit it off really great the rest is wonderful history)

I disagree. The Russian Government knows that if we were to absorb any former-soviet country, there would most likely be an armed conflict with support from the rest of Europe, as well as the problem of dealing with rebels and terrorists.

And you think that a country that could potentially end up being a staging area for NATO is NOT in one of Russia's interests?
I'm not saying that Russia needs to go in and take over the whole goddamned region, it'd be more trouble for us, but I am saying that pressure needs to be applied from both sides in order to prevent the wholesale killing of civilians in Eastern Ukraine.

Oh, and btw, I just noticed your comment about dakimakuras (the body pillows) and the loli/lolicons.

Just wanted to clear up, the term loli is misused on every occasion now. It actually refers to the 'small body frame' and can be used in reference to adults, of course. Also, in anime there are often characters which seem underage, but are actually of legal age. The term 'loli' is also connected to a dressing style (and it's absolutely not something a child would wear, believe me...). I don't know why it bugs me when people associate loli with pedophilia (which is totally gross, absolutely disgusting and omg kill it with fire). Because... it doesn't have any relevance, right?

That's what I noticed, at least. I haven't been to Japan, so I'm not an expert.
#51 to #50 - bizengaust ONLINE (08/20/2014) [-]
My knowledge of the subject is actually very limited. The only time I've been exposed to it is when I see it in anime stores  my cousin loves anime so I send her stuff often  or when I see people cosplaying. I did have some prior knowledge to lolita fashion since it's actually a retro fashion trend in Russia  although it's not as popular as dolls are associated with being stupid and empty headed . When I came to Japan I was actually very interested in girls dressing in Lolita fashion. I'm a sucker for Victorian era dress or anything so that sort of thing was right up my ally. I cannot lie though, when I first saw grown men fawning over underage girls I was very unsettled. I think part of this was because 1.) I've had times when I tutor junior high and I've had to call the cops because grow men were harassing my students and 2.) Because I just didn't understand the culture.   
I've since learned a ton about the fascination with "cute culture" and the fact that the age of consent is very different  it's 13 for anything that isn't intercourse which is 18 but you can get married at 16. It's very sticky business     
Since I come from a culture were sexual violence is a big issue I do get a little freaked out but in learning the culture I'm starting to see that It's not all associate with pedophilia. After all, the story Lolita wasn't about that sort of thing at all either. It was simply about a man trying to relive the memory of someone he lost in his youth  I get angry when people associate that story with him being a pedophile to. I feel like their missing the bigger picture.

#52 to #51 - bestfoxgirl (08/20/2014) [-]
Well, grown men fawning over underage girls is a totally disgusting, inhumane act which doesn't really have anything to do with liking 'loli', right? Cause, you know, in many 'loli' cases the girls are actually adult, or sometimes even ancient (when it comes to mythical creatures, etc. Picture related to that btw) only looking young (or 'petite' as some people call it). Grown men harassing your students? Was it back in Russia or in US? I know that US has a big problem with that one, I mean, you know about US and the crime rate. They're all ****** up degenerates who don't understand the concept of morality (I've had some unpleasant experiences with them, not only their manners are pitiful, they're also very noisy and rude).

Actually, the age of consent in Japan was a mystery to me. 13 seems like too little for me, and intercourse at 18 is a bit... unrealistic in nowadays societies. Of course I know that Japanese are far more moral when it comes to relationships and don't start their sexual lives at 15 like most western kids (I'd love it if more societies took example from Japanese, the 'Sleeping in one house? But we're only in highschool!' lines are just too cute. Totally not like the moral failure of the US and a good deal of Europe), but I can't help but notice the great dissonance between 13 and 18 when the... interactions could be perceived in various ways.

Also, doesn't getting married automatically mean you are treated as an adult? I know legal systems like that, where normally you have to be 18 to do something, but when you get married, you are treated as if you were 18.
#53 to #52 - bizengaust ONLINE (08/20/2014) [-]
Like I said the consent rules are very strange and there is a lot of fine print and it always throws me off, especially since your considered a legal adult at 20 which is when you have your coming of age day which takes place on the second Monday of January after you turn . They say it's helped crack down on a lot of sex crime in that age group but I don't know the gritty details of it.
The harassing of the students happened about two years after I came to Japan and it was the first time I was offered to tutor Junior high. We had just finished up and let them go when another student ran over to me and told me there was a creepy guy in the school yard. When I got out there he was trying to give them money to lift up their skirts for him these girls were only 14 mind you . I was so horrified that all I could think to do was run over and hit the guy with my bag over and over while someone called the police. It wasn't long after this that I learned that there were establishments in the cities where you can go and see school girls and do lewd acts with them their ages range from 13 to god knows where and it's all perfectly legal.
This is why I always tell my students to go home in either pairs or groups and to carry something that they can defend themselves with if they have to. Even if it is acceptable in establishments I simply cannot stomach the concept of someone asking that of a child legal or not.
#54 to #53 - bestfoxgirl (08/22/2014) [-]
Oh, I guess it is kinda strange. I don't know how it 'helped', since that course of actions always work just to cover up the problem with inaccurate statistic than avert the social issues themselves.

So it was in Japan? I didn't know such things happen there, I mean, Japan society seemed far too... moral to do such things.

Yeah, asking a child to do that is more than disgusting... and I hope they still treat it as harassment if someone asks for that outside these 'legal establishments', otherwise there would be no way of defending against such... creatures (sorry but I won't call them humans)
#55 to #54 - bizengaust ONLINE (08/22/2014) [-]
Japan is very moral but they are also very traditional which I don't think is horrible considering I come from a culture where men are gentleman and woman are ladies but in Japan they take it as an excuse to treat woman as second class. Things have gotten better though and they crack down on sexual harassment more then they used to in the past. People actually get jail time whereas in the past they would have to simply pay a heavy fine and they've created woman only train/subway cars to avoid the groping problem. In my eyes it's one thing if someone comes up to me and slaps my ass I'll just turn around and slap the **** out of them but to do that to a child is just disgusting. It's like....whats wrong with you? Do you have no sister or mother? How would you feel if someone treated them like that?

It's just good that he didn't suffer. You know, there was nothing that could be done, so there's no blame on anyone.   
   
That's why I wouldn't bear to have a pet. Other than the fact that I'm not responsible enough.

Funny enough I used to think the same. Before I got him (his name was Oskar) I was a pretty selfish person and I cared only about myself. But I found him one day at shelter where he was a runt and my father convinced me to get him to teach me to be responsible. It was really 						******					 at first and I hated how much work he was, but over time I grew to love him and when I came to Japan he was my rock when I got nervous or scared. Looking back I am glad for the time I had with him and I wouldn't have changed it for anything.  I'm a firm believer of everything happening for a reason

こんにちは, random Japan-interested anon here. I really liked you're comps about Japan and I was wondering about something. When I went to Osaka 2 years ago, I was really shocked that there were hardly any free wi-fi spots anywhere (which doubled when I found out there weren't any at McDonalds or Starbucks either). Did you have a similar reaction when you first moved to Japan?

P.S. Could you include vending machines in a future comp? I'm still a little confused as to why they seemed to have one at every block.
#27 to #25 - bizengaust ONLINE (07/15/2014) [-]
I was at first yes, especially in the cities where you'd think it would be all over the place. The reason for this though is because they have special wi fi cafes where people can go and use computers or a wi fi connection. They are pretty much cyber cafes. They also have book shops like this to. I plan on working the weird vending machines into a comp in the future. I just want to get enough photos of them together first.
