Extremely popular J-vloggers (Japanese vloggers) Rachel and Jun take to the streets to ask Japanese University students their opinions on foreign countries and foreigners. The two vloggers ask the students a series of questions about what they think about certain foreigners and their opinons on diferences between those foreigners and Japanese people.
They asked them about things like politeness in Japan vs the rest of the world and who they thought had the most polite people in the world. Most of them picked Japan as the most polite country, which honestly doesn't come as much of a surprise. Japan does have completely different styles of talking depending on the respect level between the speaker and listener.
When asked which foreign countries they'd like to go to and why, there were actually some pretty interesting answers. One girl said that she'd like to go to Morocco in order to ride a camel. Another girl said she was interested in going to America in order to learn more about dance.
One of the tougher questions they asked was about mistakes that foreigners make in Japan and how they felt about them. It feels like that many of them may have held back on their answers here to be polite. But one thing they did say was about foreigners often say "Sumimasen" or Sorry too often. They say that it gets to the point where they have to tell them its ok.
It seems like Japanese people especially the younger generation is very welcoming and interested in foreigners and foreign countries. There is a strong language barrier still in Japan, but hopefully with more students becoming interested in foreign countries and foreign languages, that barrier will be destroyed and we can learn more from each other.
