I’m going to be starting a Korean study session in Shinchon (Seoul, South Korea).We’ll meet once or twice a week and use the middle school Korean literature textbook that all schools in Korea use.Also, if you like Korean on Facebook, you can contact me directly or leave questions there too.
Japanese women, especially young Japanese women, are obsessed with self-help.
A recent Japanese government study showed that 25% of all females were active in self-improvement programs, but the percentage of young women who read personal development books or are active in some sort of self-help or education program probably approaches 100%.
Maintaining traditional family roles has been easier than in many other countries, because Japan only opened direct contact with the rest of the world following United State Navy's 1854 expedition to Japan and the final decision to embrace the Western world did not really occur until the 1870s.
Although the country is an overwhelmingly urban society that produces some of the most modern technology, it is only about 150 years removed from a deeply entrenched traditional culture that remained largely unchallenged and barely changed for at least a millennia.
One of the biggest Asian dating sites on the web is Asian Beauties, but currently they have a lot more hot Chinese girls than Japanese girls.
So, if you absolutely must have a Japan girl, then don't waste your time with them.Though it may seem strange to Americans and Europeans, most Japanese women make an effort to conform to these traditional values.However, trying to be a traditional wife and mother in a modern, wired society is not easy for most Japanese women.Japan is a modern Westernized country and Japanese girls are heavily influenced by both American and European culture and their own pop culture in movies, television, and the ubiquitous manga comics.These modern influences have tempered Japanese girl's view of their roles.The tradition that the wife was submissive to her husband was a central tenet of that culture and the tradition that a wife's primary goal in life is to obey and pamper her husband still runs deep.
