I have not...but before I die I know it is a place I need to go. I understand it is a very difficult journey to the top.

it is, this may sound corny, but I just ran out of there.. the first floor was a showcase of the epicenter and some show, but the second floor are some actual remains and lots of picture of the victim... it was really an eye opener. It is so different from just reading it in a book that actually seeing the real thing..

most japanese are not too dumb to hate americans in 21th century, past is past, but there are still japanese around the age of 40 that still hates americans, because their relative or friend or pet died...not every japanese wanted a war, i don't know if you readed the book of the memory of Geisha?
the true story, that girl tells her story, what happened...see? she was just doing her job and then her career was over, what did she do? NOTHING!
so that's why, think clearly before you say something...

[qQUOTE= - But I wouldn't want to see a Japanese person at Pearl Harbor.
well where has been more victims? Pearle Harbor or Hiroshima?

"At that time, Hiroshima's population was 400000, of which 140000 died by the end of 1945"

"The following is a list of how many people were killed on Dec. 7, 1941 as a result of the Japanese attack upon Pearl Harbor. Total 2,403"

Source Wikipedia

so don't be selfish, if you act like this, then you will get a bad view about yourself, japanese people will see you as an racist, why bother to come to japan?

... Better.
Ever heard of the Nanjing Massacre? Unit 731? The Bataan Death March? It's not like the Japanese were innocent in World War II, either.

By the way, your obvious hatred for Americans is a real great display of immaturity. I've seen your type plenty before - the kind that like to lump people into groups and make biased judgments against them. Clearly you've let stereotypes cloud your judgments. Americans can be a loud, uncultured bunch - there are more of those types of people in America than in other cultures/countries, but they are by far not the norm here. Grow up, mate.

It just seems like you have been baiting for a fight...especially when you say you haven't heard of Nanking.

I was just about to make that point. Good one .
