For those of us in the UK or who have access to iPlayer, I recommend taking a look at the BBC3 documentary Coming Here Soon. It gives an interesting insight into the lives of young people in Japan: ultra-conformism, homeless people sleeping in internet cafes, graduates getting jobs as security guards and being put through a tough boot-camp, 14 to 18 hour days for some restaurant workers, 20 counter-culture types living in a one-bedroom flat. Very interesting.
Not a bad programme, but she's hardly our best investigative journalist. Still, she made it through the Japan episode of the programme without crying. That was the most interesting thing about it.
Haha, she's an airhead, but her heart seems to be in the right place. No crying? I'm sure I saw some suppressed blubbing from her when those security guards graduated!
So you knew all that about Japan already, Xiongmao? Maybe you should be making documentaries instead of fiddling about with dating sites?
Yeah, I've been to Japan 4 times and I've seen some stuff. Incredible stuff. Like I was actually inside the Tokyo stock exchange on the day in 2008 when the market fell 10%. I don't even know if it was open to the public, I just sort of wandered in lol.
I went enough times that I found the wierd stuff like shops selling school girls panties and whale meat. But I won't profess to understanding anything I saw out there.
I did take a load of movies in Japan but I haven't go round to youtubing them up.
She didn't blub as much as she did in her Thailand documentary. Maybe she's battle hardened now.
I did like that Japanese girl she went to the speed dating with though. Wow, she had some exotic looks. I need to find a Chinese girl who looks like her.
I do miss Japan but I've found it a lot easier to engage with the locals in China.
Upon looking this show up I found out you're talking about Stacey Dooley. I previously made a thread about her: http://www.happierabroad.com/forum/view ... hp?t=12450

it's interesting what you said about japanese girls vs chinese girls.
I have only limited experience with japanese girls, I went to dinner with one once, I've only dated a chinese girl.
if I went abroad it would probably be to china, as it's the best place from me to get a job to supplement my living and expenses.
What was the main difference between the Chinese and Japanese girls, throw me a pm if you'd like I'd be interested to chat about this.
