I should also like to add that only 10% of the posters on this forum have actually been to Japan, and probably only about 3% have ever lived there for a reasonable amount of time. It's terribly difficult to get a good perspective on Japan if you've never set foot on one of their islands. Point is, even though there are some people here who know a lot about Japanese culture, only those that have lived in Japan should be the ones that you trust regarding 'living in Japan' questions.
Despite their good intentions, many people get skewed perspectives about Japan either from media or just from heresy and rumor. Just because AnimeDude22 says that Japanese fear foreigners, doesn't mean it's true.
