Japan - The Strange Country

Check out this video!

"This is my final thesis project. I created info-graphic, motion piece.
My objective is to make Japanese people to think about that everything happening here in Japan, isn't that normal.
So I created this video from foreigner's point of view, rather than Japanese people's point of view.

Both English and Japanese versions are available.

By the way, please don't call me racist, because I am one of short, small eyes Japanese.

大学の卒業制作で制作した映像です。(日本語版)
日本で生活していると、当たり前すぎて気づかない「不思議な事実」を、海外で生活した経験も生かし、外国人の視点から統計とともに映像化しました。
笑いつつも、「なんか不思議だな」と考えてもらえれば幸いです。
日本語版と英語版を制作しました。 "

THanks for the video. My japanese skills are quite rudimentary but I understood the context. Plus some of the jokes the author put in it about his society.

Very creative thesis.

Ah, I've watched this video probably 20 times already XD, I show it to everyone I meet...
I do love the fact that the author is Japanese--he can dodge all those distracting accusations about him being racist. I'm sure he probably upset a lot of viewers by mentioning the dark sides of Japan, but I think it's admirable and necessary.
And I agree, CC, he should make more of these clips about other countries! I'd love to see one of Korea or China.
