    What is your favorite foreign culture and why?



    My Favorite foreign culture is probably Japanese.

    Japan is one of the few countries I know that still has strong family values.

    (all though I'm not a huge anime fan I only watch some).

    Note: Tied with Ireland and Russia.

    Didn't have time for all countries and some didn't appear. I also forgot to add other as a choice.

    It is impossible to pick just ONE.
    Where five hamlets are the unit for judgments, supremacy is attained; where ten hamlets are the unit for judgments, there is merely strength.

    Fine...
    French - for Louis XIV., gothic architecture, poetry, wine, food and petanque and simply for being so wonderfully French.
    English - for various reasons - literary tradition, architecture, gardening, Monty Python and for being so wonderfully English.
    Icelandic - just watch some movie by Fridrik Tor Fridriksson and you'll get the idea...
    Russian - the folk tales, the vast lands, all those wonderful songs like Oi moroz moroz and the whole bewildering complexity that is contained within the word "Russian".
    Chinese and Japanese - for being sexy and exotic... And complex. And *different*. And for the martial art flicks and the horror movies.
    Romanian - I love the language and like the music... Romania is quite a unique and alluring country within the European context.
    American - for the incredible internal diversity and the blurring of the borders...
    Canadian - the geography, Lexx and Voaden's "Wilderness" are good enough reasons...:-)

    And so on and so forth... I would probably have to list any culture that I am at least vaguely familiar with... Would take a lot of time. Generally, I am probably somewhat more drawn towards France, Britain, Scandinavia and the Balkans than to other regions of the world - but come to think of it - the more you know about a culture (any culture), the more fascinating it is...

    Japan.

    yep, that sums it up for me.

    Their animation rocks (anime/manga). Their clothing style (Kimono). their language (Hiragana/Katakana/Kanji).

    in fact, i'm sorta trying to teach myself Japanese. :D

    hmm, how about everything?

    yeah that'll do.
    More disturbing than your creepy uncle...

    Katanas are totally cool, but I like yatagans better...
