    My interest for Japan come thanks to the music and mangas .
    Without them I couldn't know the culture of Japan, which <I'm interested in .
    I'm also interested of the people, they look to be really nice and helpful .
    That attractive me to go in Japan .
    The food too, I would like to know more about food . Because it's not only Sushi, Maki ..etc it's more than that!!

    It can be really nice to see the gardens, temples ..etc
    I really want to go there .

    I love lots of things about Japan, but if there's one thing I can't stand it's the food.

    Well, it started classicaly, with anime and then manga. Butr soon my interests spread...because I studiet fine-arts. I am interested in japanesse painting but as well in modern graphic and proiduct design, because the ideas are so fresh and intraditionall and japanesse traditional in the same time. And I am interested in japanese history, mostly the heian time and then the bakumatsu and meiji-revolution-times.Well and I love japanese food, I have chopsticks at home and I eat just everything with them. I like, how the food looks like, but I also like the taste, it is not so sharp as the chinese or vietnamese kitchen, but delicious.
    And lately I listen to j-rock, but I love the traditional music too, but it is really difficult to find.

    I like Jupan culture. The themes is liked me:
    Manga & Anime. - Is not all, but some ideas from that. It`s may be not standaring and some unexpected.
    Video games. - May be, may be... But it is not my own interest.
    Culture in general. - Yes of course! It`s not ordinary
    Japanese people (friendship or more). - Yes. But I have not yet friends from Japan.
    Japanese language - try to learn it (Nihongo no benkyosite imas. Ima va sita des ).
    Religion (shinto, buddhism, zen...). I have interest to it. No form but internal ideas.
    Want fly to sky. But must sit on the ground...

    I'm interested in most of the above. But the thing which attracted me the most was the language. After learning the language, I got interested in anime and manga and from there, it branched off to all different fields like Japanese Rock Music, tradition and culture, food. As for Japanese Religion, I'm more interested in knowing what's the difference between Japanese Religion and our own local religions =)

    It's funny my dad say's Nissen with the short i, and not Nisan I try to correct him Nissen is a bread company from where I'm from and Nisan is the car company from Japan. My dad loves old cars and he has a collection of them. The only Asian car he owns is a Korean sports car that the name for it means Shark in Spanish. Since some of the Biggest car companies going bankrupted in my country we gonna have to look to Asia to get our cars because the Japanese and Koreans know how to make their cars. But what about the Japanese men? This is not all a mans world There are girls out there who like boys.... And I do find the boys in Japan very Good looking.

    Culture. No other interest really. When in Japan, I do enjoy watching Sumo Wrestling though, when they televise the tournaments.

    What do you mean "when they televise the tournaments"?

    When they bring TV cameras into auditoriums during national Sumo Tournaments, like in Tokyo and Nagoya. I've been in Japan at the time some of these tournaments have taken place. They were televised (apparently) on a daily basis.

    Right, ALL of the annual pro tournaments are televised. I guess your wording is what confused me.

    The main thing that interested me in Japan growing up was technology. Then I started to study the language in college, and the interest grew.
