What the stamp says.

Japan is not what you see from anime, children. Get cultured and get less ignorant.

I'll admit, Japan has some good stuff, like the food, the traditional music, the technology [I wonder what it would be like to spend the night in a capsule hotel], the scenery, and while I do like a few anime, the rest of the time I don't see what makes it so spectacular, especially those that yell "FUCK LOGIC" by giving female characters--some of them appearing to be children, mind you--unrealistic chest sizes. As for the food, I'll say this much about weeaboos and what they consider "wagashi" [I appologize if this is the wrong word for "dessert", I found it in The Manga Cookbook]: Flan is a SPANISH CUSTARD, not a JAPANESE PUDDING. I don't care if you saw it in fan art or an official manga/anime, flan has been from its creation and will remain a Spanish dessert.

Also, the language used in anime is very informal, so if you try to apply what you learned from it in public in Japan, don't be surprised when they punch you in the face.
I personally want to go to Japan to see if it has any traditional operas. Their traditional music is beautiful. The country itself is beautiful. I don't get what's so special about it's cartoons.
I actually had the privilege of seeing an opera when I was in Japan. It was a western-style opera but with a unique Japanese twist (it was written by a Japanese playwright). Best money I've ever spent.

and likewise, I don't get it either.

NO IT ISENT !"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love Lolita fashion and Japanese music, but it's not the only think I'd go to Japan for. I want to try all kinds of foods there, like manju, takoyaki and sashimi, as well as wanting to try the culture and manners out for myself: shoes off when you enter, speak quietly, verb conjugations for politeness. Also, the scenery is another big aspect, and I would like to see a traditional Japanese tea house in person.

People seriously need to get their facts straight. I've always wanted to visit Japan since I was little. like 9 or 10. I didn't even know what anime or otakus or Stuff like that was when I was that young. I found the culture interesting, and I remember when I was in 7th grade in my geography class, I would head straight for the index in the textbooks to look up Japan, and look at the pages that showed the culture of Japan, and you couldn't get me away from the book for a second to talk to me. But I never knew what anime was until I was late 12- early 13. I'm writing this as I'm 14. sure, I love anime and all, but Its not why I like Japan. not even close. I've always found Japanese holidays like Tanabata very interesting, and the history- I can't tell you how many times that attracted me so much.
So those weeaboos or whatever you call them need to fucking learn more. they need to study REAL culture instead of judging a country from what they heard about it from some random dumbass instead of doing actual research.

Anime is good, but I'm more into the culture, food, language, fashion, and building :) I find them more interesting.
