What is the most impressive experience in your life in Japan.Part time JobShe was surprised of the high wage and the job is not so hard.She was a teacher in elementary school in China. It was a heavy burden for her. Just like volunteer. In China, over 16 years students can be a teacher in official school.Train be filled to the doors. Chinese people use bicycle, but Japanese people like using train. Before I got used to, it was very hard time for her. Horroble!! She said.

I will write some comment about this later.


I interveiwed a student studying abroad from China

What is the different image about this countriy before come to Japan and after come to Japan.

About people,
She had thought Japanese people are not friendly and don’t like China, but after come to Japan they realized that we are kind and active than they thought.

About life,
She had thought Japanese life style is simple, but in contrast, Japanese people like drinking and playing. This surprised her most.

This is our theme of the group project. They have own special history. So we have some problems about that.
1@@ Does the Japanese gaovernment have the responsibility to protect them even now?

In the past, the Japnese governmnet take them from their own land to this countiry. But now, those who live in Japan as Japanese-Korean are thier descendents. They don't want to go back thier own countiry. And they don't want to become as real Japanses. I think that we can traeat them as normal foriegners becasue they are not the victims of the war. OR It is OK to become Japanese if them want. The government should show the two way for them to choose.

As a result, they have realized.
The border will be disappeared, then what can be the boundary of us. Oh! We have own cultures and ethnics which has been forgotten in nation-states age. So we should protect this!

I believe this is the story of the change into the new world.


Two reasons of the cahnge.

First, the development of technology has made countries depend on each other deeply. The development of technology enables us to communicate with people who live in abroad cheaper, faster and easier than what used to be. This reduced cost of communication has increased the number of transnational participants. Then, it leads to the complex and very wide network of communication. Through this networks, in economic, political, social cultural field, have come to the network of interdependence.
Second, especially each country tends to depend on each other in two kinds of fields. First one is the economic field. Distance is almost nothing as for stock or currency deal. And such as Multinational Corporation contribute to many countries economy. These factors deepen the interdependence of economy. Second one is the political field. This good example is EU. Though to some extent the figures of nations exist, it is free to export, import, and move etc. Thus, economical and political globalization is remarkable under the status quo.

New world.

I read the papers about nationalism. The author said thanks to the change of the world, the nationalis has been changed. Then I will think about the reasons of this change.



What is the result of melting pot. I belieave this neglect policy leads to gap of income or social position. I think I can show the slum problem as a good example. Since the government didn't respect them but just insist that they should live as one nation, slum has made up. The happy society which is mixed up with many different cultures is a just ideal. It is impossible to understand each other completely and respect each other without governmental policy, mosaic. Compared to the US, Canada take mosaic policy and the government take the policy that respect nations' each culture, laguage life-style. As a result, they can respect each other. I think this is proved in the differences of crime rate between the US and Canada.
