China's national character

Beijing Shijingshan Amusement Park

Beijing Shijingshan Amusement Park

China is the country which often comes to an issue about making fellows. For example, Beijing Shijingshan Amusement Park was said that it was in imitation of Disneyland. When I saw the news at first, I was shocked very much because the characters in there were such funny figures.

I often feel unpleasant at Chinese culture which imitates others without hesitation. But I became aware of something that Japanese people have also imitated China. We Japanese often use kanji, but it was originally from Chinese culture.

Recently, I watched a Chinese interview on TV. He said that Chinese culture was sharing something good for everyone. I think it may be necessary that more Japanese people understand Chinese culture.

More Japanese people should understand Chinese culture
by: Gary Wolff

Thanks for your nice story, Yuka.

Before I moved to Japan I used to think that copying & imitating took place just in Asian countries, but now I'm pretty sure it happens worldwide.

Recently I read that Samsung & Apple have filed lawsuits against each other because of the theft of smart phone technology from both companies.

Perhaps it's just the sign of our times and something we may not be able to do anything about.

Thanks so much for sharing your viewpoint !
