I went to a screening called HAFU. Japan is a developed modern country but it seems like they are struggling to identify the identity as Japanese. Is it so important to look the same to be Japanese? It made me think to be Japanese and what is to be Japanese.
More than 70% of Japanese women are not called by her name once they become a mother. POLA made an experiment. What happens when they are called by the name instead of Mum?
People are talking about Japanese girls look all the same and call them Ryosangata Joshidaisei (mass production female university students). They even call these girls creepy. But does this happen only to Japanese girls or in Japan?
Today is Doyo no Ushi no Hi in Japan. It´s the day Japanese people consume eels the most during the year to beat the summer heat. Why eels? And what does Doyo no ushi no hi means?
