China's national character
by Yuka O.
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.
