I am a german boy and many of my friends are interested in cars 2, but me not. That are only machines! People are yery much more interesting

I am interested in Japan, because it is yery different than Europe or America (Usa). There is not only another culture i guess. The people there live in another system.
But i dont know yery much about japan (thats why i search people from japan).
Japan is great but it have (like every country) his weaknesses.
That are points, i am interested in.
Of course things like Manga, anime and the typical japanese art of humor i am interested too. Cu
