Another example offered in a media of stereotyping Japanese culture from an outside-in perspective. Yes, I am tire of hearing this type of cliche. Media is another source of gathering information (gaining knowledge) whether it is obtained quickly as it is today or 500 years ago. How this information is digested is one's business! This commentary is a typical myopic view of Japanese culture that is negatively perceived. Every person in the world demonstrates his/her attitude and behavior individually or as a part of group. Simply being a high tech junkie does not qualify himself as an accepted mature worldly person as this author implies. I suggest that the most important aspect of understanding other set of cultural groups is to experience one on one relationship with each person and enjoy what each person offers without defining what a group sociological culture is. Another problematic delivery of this commentary is that offering one example of one's experience does not qualify or justify his points of view. Therefore, this commentary is extremely nearsighted.
