Hi! I come from Japan and I am very proud of my country.
If you are asking why am I so proud of being a Japanese, the answer is that there are many reasons. One of which is that Japan is very advanced in technology. What to talk about the recent inventions like Video camera, Digital camera, DVD, CDs etc., let’s go back to WWII. In WWII, Japan made the world’s most powerful airplane of that time. Japan was also the most powerful country in Asia in that time! For me the reason behind this success is that we Japanese are a very hardworking nation.
I love to play soccer and I feel so proud that Japan won the world cup in soccer 4 times in 1992, 2000, 2004 and 2011!
Have you ever heard of ‘Katana’? It is a sword that can cut through a lot of things. It can cut through even a 0.6 mm steel plate. And yes Japanese were the ones who made this powerful weapon during Samurai period (15th century). By the way, my brother has a small Katana called “Ko-Katana” which he uses for arts and crafts.
I love to eat Thai food but I consider Japanese food to be very delicious. It also has lots of health benefits. And I think that is the reason that our traditional cuisine has been added to the United Nation's cultural heritage list.
Whenever I visit my country I love to travel by bullet train called “Shinkansen”. It was once the fastest passenger train when it was released. The Shinkansen goes all around Japan. It also goes to the different main islands of Japan.
Speaking of islands, Japan is also full of amazing tourist attractions. For ex, Himeji, Kyoto, Osaka, Tokyo, etc.
So these are just a few things to be proud of being a Japanese.
