perhaps a Toyota would have been more appropriate than a Ford?

America is the country that amazes me.

You would never see American day in Japan. Never.

You would never see American day in Japan. Never.

Every day is America Day in the America Park neighborhood in Shinsaibashi, Osaka.

Yokota Air Base is hosting one of biggest American Days next weekend.

I imagine that the cue to get into the base will resemble Gas Panic on a Saturday night.

There are a million and one events all over Japan that promote US culture.

This weekend you can checkout the 3 day Black Ship Festival in Shimoda, that celebrates the establishment of trade with the US.

I hate when I see cosplay and stupid characters representing Japanese culture. Come on - Japan is more than that!

Nothing wrong with having the lowbrow stuff in there along with the middlebrow and highbrow stuff.

Nothing wrong with Hello Kitty. People like it. It sells.

There was a queue outside of the main gate but it kept moving, 5-7 min. and we were in. (2023)

Various international festivals take place in Japan, primarily in Tokyo and Osaka. These festivals serve as a platform for cultural exchanges between different countries. For instance, last September, the Rome Opera House performed in Tokyo for a month-long event. Additionally, the Tokyo Opera is scheduled to visit Italy for upcoming performances.

It is much more than Hello Kitty.

Kitty White, to use her full name, is actually English. She was born in the suburbs of London and is one very rich little kitty indeed:

Not just a Ford. A Ford Mustang that came out in the late 80s.

Great picture. I don't know anyone who doesn't like Hello Kitty. Well, there are Nihonphobes, some here on Japan Today, but they don't count.

America isn't threatened by other cultures. We welcome and celebrate the best of every culture.

I've never understood anything about Hello Kitty. From ZERO knowledge, it seems dumb. Perhaps just my ignorance, which is fine. I've never understood virtual pets either. If you enjoy it, it doesn't harm anyone else or their property, I say enjoy yourself.
