There is a characteristic model of "old style Japanese" which is featured by like "organisation is more important than individual" or "behave like as the others do".

This kind of model make the people average level and keep people away from creativity.

Most of Japanese know these tendency is not so good and think Japanese should go out from these "old style".

When asked, Japanese would reply "I do not think the old style Japanese is good" like as you see in the girl in the video.

However, these "old style" is deeply exist in every Japanese's mind.

Though a Japanese think the old style is not good, he would be happy and peaceful among the "old style Japanese atmosphere". Even the younger generation of Japanese have such tendency.

Language makes Culture and Culture makes Language.
