Japan: Odd Survey

What Japan Thinks is a blog that translates quite interesting Japanese public opinion polls to English, such as on the popularity of mobile phones as gaming platforms or the market for RSS readers in Japan. Yet his most popular post appears to be this one, now ricocheting off various Asia blogs: a survey of Japanese husbands on how long their spouses waited after marriage before breaking wind in front of them.

  • Have you ever wondered how the Japanese really lives? What their towns and villages are like? The image of Japan and the Japanese through movies and animes are far from the reality. We intend to show the true face of Japan to the entire world through an English language portal called http://www.cooljapan.org.
