One of the biggest draws of Japan is the exceptional girls the country has.Unlike k-pop, if you look at Japanese media and then travel to Japan you will be able to find girls that look and act almost EXACTLY like they do on TV.As a Chinese, single woman in the UK - where I have rarely come across racism – my East Asian friends and I have encountered a fair share of men with telltale signs of yellow fever.But it's subtle, and of course, few would admit to surfing online dating sites for Chinese women, yet when the only girls they date are Chinese, then the probabilities are in their favour.I find it really ironic that Korea has managed to create media that connects with and excites the masses in a way that living in Korea …just doesn’t.In fact, Korea is far more inhospitable to foreigners than Japan is.This is one of the factors that makes it such a fascinating country to watch and to live in.
It’s as if the Chinese are so foreign it doesn't count.
In the UK, Sherry Fang, a 26-year-old British Chinese student, tells me she's had strangers say to her “you look just like his ex, she was also Chinese”, and argues it would be wholly inappropriate if she were black or Indian.
In Britain, while significant rates of intermarriage between the Chinese and white Caucasian population have demonstrated social integration, the trend is nevertheless heavily skewed towards Chinese women and white men, rather than the other way around.
This obviously means that they really know how to unwind from the stresses of daily life. They love to dress well and look their best at all times. They love it, or pretend to love it until you work out what really pushes her buttons.
They also get into all sorts of niche hobbies and sub-cultures that keep them quirky and your interest sparked. I know of no other country where girls can look so cute and cuddly and so sexually alluring all at the same time. Japanese girls are up for it, so long as the guy they like likes them back.
