But dealing with Japanese people on personal level is totally another story. For example,if I had to choose a roommate from another country, I would definitely choose Japanese. Japanese people are very friendly and courteous. I haven't met a single Japanese people I dislike.
I would not live with a Japanese, unless I know him very well.
Usually Japanese people don't tell you what they really like or dislike, so problems are never solved. Therefore, you may think you are doing perfectly well but get hated.

these are just the nationalists of course....
That's what I heard a lot before as well. The only foreigners that the Japanese like the most are white people, except for the residents in Okinawa Prefecture.

At least, things Japanese roommate won't do:
- leave dirty plates in the sink for a week
- make excessive noise at night
- bring a dozen of his buddies to party day and night
- mess up the bathroom and never attemp to clean the toilet

Japense people are anything but annooying douchbags. I don't expect too much like genuine friendship from a roommate, all I need is someone who doesn't make troubles.

Americans are usually friendly, not trying to do any harm, but inconsiderate. Being selfish is the norm.

anyways the only ea group that hate on all those groups you mentioned are chinese
Most Chinese have no idea who Cambodians and Laos are, and there is absolutely no hate.

Chinese may be arrogant but generally speaking they do not behave like Nazis.

Mmm. I'd like to point our something.
You're looking at this matter from Japan's point of view.
Yes, Japan did help Korea somewhat in industrial means. But they wouldn't have come that far if Korea's BaekJae helped them in the past. Korea also had a longer history (dates back to B.C. 2000, with evidence), meaning that rather than Korea following Japan, Japan followed Korea- this was mainly thanks to the fact that Korea had trade relationships to China. Then again about the other things about korean names... they were actually banned, but WW2 happened soon enough. Also, while the Japanese slaughtered both Koreans and tons of Korean traditions, they also killed plenty of the tigers in the Korean mountains. They are now extinct.
Also, Japan's reign lasted barely 20~30 years- and while that wasn't enough to establish lasting monuements or anything, they destroyed Korea's most important SukGulAmm, sold off the very first copy made from metal lettering, and abused women.
I'm not trying to sound anti Japanese or anything, but they did do dome horrible stuff.
For all that 'evidence', Koreans actually had rebel forces- and these people were those who made those stuff. And if you haven't noticed, all those pictures are atually Chinese characters, not Korean.

Not true. The vast majority of high-tech Chinese workers in the Bay area are from Mainland, probably over 90%.

Jerry Yang although born in Taiwan is practically an American because he moved to California at the age of 10.

I don't think many Chinese hate Singaporean... how is that possible. There is nothing to hate about Singapore. There are only who hate or strongly dislike Japan among all the Asian countries.

However, there are many Singaporeans and Hong Konger who act all superior with the Chinese, and that probably causes some spite, especially when they act all civil and polite once a white person talks to them (the arrogance disappears all of a sudden). -- that is truly despicable.

Of course Chinese in China do not hate Singaporeans, most know little about Singapore and HK actually. People in Mainland China do not know much about the world like the Singaporeans. Singaporeans are very global. And you are right the people in China very dislike the Japanese, but a small minority of Chinese are into Japanese culture and language, the number of people is small. Production from Japan are almost never broadcasted on tv channels of China. But there are quite many production from South Korea, Taiwan Hong Kong and US on tv.

South Korean popular culture has some fans in Japan. But I will say K-pop is currently more popular in China than Japan. The Japanse understand well the causes of tensions between their country and Korea & China. Taiwan is not as fussy as PRC and Korea over the islands dispute with Japan. Taiwanese are very into Japanese culture. Speak Japanese to youths in Taiwan, high chance they will reply back in good Japanese. The percentage is probably 5% only for the youths in HK and Singapore, who value English much over the Japanese language.

And for the Japanese and South Koreans. Russia is a country very close to them but not familiar just like North Korea. Russians and Chinese are more familiar with each other.
