Japanese name for a Japanese shop?
I will be opening a small shop selling vintage items from Japan: kimonos, dolls, ceramics, dishes, lacquer ware, iron samurai helmet replicas, artwork, etc. Any ideas? Thanks for any help or ideas you have! All suggestions welcome.
Nihon-ya (Japan shop)
Are Japanese people more peaceful than Koreans?
Now don't get me wrong. Both countries have very low crime and murder rates, but Japan still ranks at the top above all Asian countries as the most peaceful in the world, and number 5 on the global scale. They say that the yakuza in Japan who are right wing work with the police on maintaining social order that helped make Japan a very safe and peaceful country, but the yakuza are not peaceful.
Generally, what I have noticed is that Japanese people do not get angry that easily as I have seen with Koreans. Most of all, in my expereince as an EFL teacher who worked in Korea and now works in Japan, I noticed that Japanese boys are not so violent minded as boys in Korea. You give a Japanese boy paper and pencil crayon to do art, and most times it will be something that represents peace. For most Korean boys they will draw images of violence. I guess that is because military service is mandatory for all Korean males, not here in Japan. That is why boys in Korea are more numb and desensitized to violence.
Also I saw a youtube clip of art from Japanese kids and Korean kids. They displayed art by Japanese kids that sends messages for world peace. They also showed artwork from Korean kids displaying messages of hate and violence against Japan. That is because too many Korean teachers and parents are corrupting Korean kids to believe that Japan is their number 1 enemy when North Korea is a greater threat!
Also what I have learned from my teaching experience today, is that it is very bad for teachers here in Japan to teach kids anything that has connotations to violence. Well it is bad to teach that anywhere. I once played a game called Hangman with my grade 5 students, and one of my co-teachers told me not to engage my students into playing that game anymore because the name of the game, and the image of a man being hanged (after they guessed all the wrong letters for the secret word) is one that connotates violence. Because the fact of the matter is, most Japanese people have very strong value for peace after what happened in 1945. BTW My Korean students enjoyed Hangman and I got no compalints.
Anyways, I am not saying that Japan is a utopia, there is no such thing as a utopia on this earth. But Japan is ranked 5th place as the most peaceful country in the world. Yes, I have met Koreans who are also peaceful too. But you see, the fact that most Koreans still reguard Japan as the number 1 enemy goes to show why a lot of Japanese here are fed up with the attitudes of Koreans, and so are most other Asians.
So again my question is, are Japanese more peaceful than Koreans?
I believe Japanese are generally more peaceful than koreans but maybe it is becuase the don't have much to worry about anymore and just have pride in themselves, leading to a more peaceful nation

Is Japanese Anime overrated, and why?
I admit I get a few pointers from the basic anime style in my own artwork, but I personally find anime annoying, probably because it's the lowest-common-denominator Dragon Ball Z-type stuff that ruins it. Also, just how much bigger and more watery are those eyes going to get, and if they're going to make noses so tiny, why don't they just get rid of them, altogether? It seems like when you remove the hair and clothing details, a lot of human/elf anime characters essentially look exactly the same, narrowed down to 4 or 5 basic "types" per gender.
I will freely admit to finding anime creatures a lot cooler than anime people, though . . .
Like everything else, 90% of anime is crud. The fact that vast piles of terrible, or even just depressingly mediocre anime exists, does not exclude the fact that some of it is genuinely excellent. Ghost in the Shell, and its derivatives, for example.
I feel exceedingly sorry for those poor souls unable to resist the lure of crappy anime.
Are there websites that take words from a English dictionary and give the Japanese Kanji equivilent?
I'm in the process of creating a piece of artwork on the computer that I would like to include Japanese Kanji symbols in. I don't know the first thing about the Japanese language so I was hoping to find some help. Does anyone know of any websites that could take a common English word (mostly interested in nouns like fire, soda, fruit, water, etc..) and convert it into the proper Japanese symbol/symbols as text? I absolutely love how artistic the Japanese language is, if all else fails I will choose my favorite Japanese Kanji characters copied and pasted from the web based on their look (intended audience does not speak or read language) but I'd hate to have to do this and would really prefer to have it mean what I intended. Thanks in advance!
Note: My Vista PC came loaded with Japanese fonts. I can view pages in Japanese (both Kanji and Katakana) and copy and paste the characters into my applications. What I need is a page that lets me get the symbol I want so I can copy/paste it.
Thank you spookysickness that page is exactly what I was hoping to find! Will give you best answer as soon as yahoo allows me to
You'll need Japanese fonts supported.
