So how do people generally feel about Oda Nobunaga today? I get the feeling he's treated as a charming underdog/Caesar-like character but also evil due to the whole monk thing.

It has its roots in the fact that in the interior period, the Japanese were doing what China is now, selling cheap labor in order to entice American companies to outsource production. When japan's infrastructure was destroyed during ww2, most notably the fire bombing of Tokyo, they reinvested in tech mainly, thus avoiding the conflict with American industry. Americans aren't a hivemind, and in my experience, the average American opinion of Japan is very positive

OP, I have a few questions for you.

First, how much do you study about the world's history in Japan? Per example, here in Europe, history lessons were so extremely focused on Europe, and I don't remember myself stuying at school something about China or Japan until the second world war lessons. Apart from the Japanese history, which I have nowadays a lot of interest in, do you study something about us us?

Secondly, how is it actually the dayly life of a Japanese student? I'd like you to tell me everything you can, because it should be really different from any representation in anime/manga.

Thanks in advance)))

2 question for you, OP.

1. Since Japan is largely racially homogeneous with few immigrants living there, do you harbor a hostile feeling towards them in the sense of "who are they, they don't belong here, they're not us" or are you delighted that there are foreigners in Japan? Do you find joy in interacting with them? What's the societal reaction towards them overall? And would you travel overseas to explore all the world's culture, if you could?

2. Is Japan mostly a conservative society akin to Vietnam or China with no-nos towards homosexuality and bisexuality, etc..

Hello! I am a Chinese!
When i was young my mother told me a story about the origin of Japan. The first emperor of China Qin Shi Huang sent a bunch of people to Japan to find an potion for immortality, and then those people sent there did not find the potion for immortality.

Because they were scared Qin Shi Huang would be angry and kill them they stayed in Japan. It actually makes sense to me because the time period lines up with the End of the Jomon period. What do you think about this story?

I hope you have a nice day!

Fuzzy_Logic

@CouchChiller
I am not OP but I think the story that you were told is plausible, because I remember something about Japan having a Chinese origin. If you watch the video "History of Japan" by Bill Wurtz, you can see the first settlers coming via the Korean peninsula. I don't know if that is correct information or something that has happened in real life, but I think if people ever walk to Japan back then, they would go through the Korean peninsula.

Why did Ishida Mitsunari insult and ignore Shimazu Yoshihiro before Sekigahara and preferred to listen to Sakon Shima instead? Yoshihiro was probably the best living general in Japan at the time, wasn't he? And Ishida Mitsunari who oversaw the Korean invasions knew full well his capabilities.

Ah, that makes sense. Ishida would be crazy to completely ignore and insult someone like Yoshihiro. Because even if he won the battle, there would be bad blood between them and most of Shimazu's soldiers were safe far away in Satsuma under the capable hands of Yoshihisa.
Are there more myths created to smear the reputation of Ishida and other samurai?
