Why is it called "cultural festival" if only Japanese school/pop culture is being represented?
>>
Because Japan, unlike America do not feel the need to worship multiculturalism.
>>
>>100594374
Apparently they don't feel the need to worship their own real culture.
>>
Because Japan knows their culture is superior. Just look at OP's pic.

Indeed, the lack of diversity is appalling.

>>100594424
Do you see much niggers walking the streets of Japan?
They must be doing something right.

Doesn't matter, in the end it's always haunted house or maid cafe
>>
Maids and bunny girls are an underrepresented culture
>>
because cultural events are always about local culture. Of course since USA doesn't have one whenever they try it it's about foreign stuff from their immigrants population.
>>
>>100594374
What does it have to do worship? At my former school the kids would just bring some of their traditional food from home and sell it to the visitors.
Other kids could still choose something "normal", but in the US everyone has roots to some non-american culture.
In Japan it is different of course...
>>
>>100594463
And? I'm talking about something completely different. Their culture festivals are about cheap popculture, not real culture.
>>
>>100594424
They certainly do in anime. We already have two shows with "Nobunaga" in their name already this year.

Because it's about their culture. Do you have brain problems?
>>
>>100594536
Oh yes. And both shows have nothing to do with real Nobunaga.
>>
>>100594319
It's a Japanese school, why would you be surprised that its cultural festival celebrates Japanese school culture?
>>
>>100594424
What is "their" culture? Maid cafes and haunted houses?

I am pretty sure both were brought to Japan from the US
>>
>>100594553
What's so "theirs" about haunted house? I give you maid café but haunted house?
>>
>>100594643
>haunted house
Maybe not. They have their own ghosts. But the idea can be foreign.
>maid cafes
Obviously Western.
>>
>>100594643
They have a sports competition where boys carry girls and girls have to fight for a flag or something, just to name one example.
>>
>>100594319
Maybe it's more of a meta-culture or something. Cultural festival is a part of their culture so they do it and it's called like that.

Also, cultural festivals aren't really about "culture". Rather it's a way to "display their artistic development".

Enjoy all those mcdonald's, eurocunt

Glorious Nippon

Glorious Nippon steel folded a 1000 times

/pol/ please go
>>
I'm not even from USA and I find their culture fascinating. Probably because I've seen many film dealing with it.
>>
>>100594643
Yeah, maid cafes are all the rage stateside.
>>
>>100594835
What's an example of their culture that you find fascination?
>>
>>100594844
The general idea of mixing women/prostitution with fast-food comes from the US.

All those 70ies roller skates diners, Hooters etc...

Their culture is deeply rooted in American history. Westerns, prohibition era, great Depression, first pioneers, Civil War and so on.
>>
>>100594962
Just like how modern Sweden is deeply rooted in its paganism and expansion.
>>
>>100594471
>I've seen it in my animu, I'm sure that's how it always go there
>>
>>100595061
Somalian paganism and expansion maybe.

What are serving wenches? Pretty girls and restaurants have always been a winning combination.
>>
>>100594919
Maid dresses are designed to be cute not revealing though.
>>
>>100594698
Haunted houses are the traditional thing to do, you faggot. You're complaining that Japanese school culture is actual Japanese teenager school culture. If you want old fashioned Yamato, go to a festival at a shrine, not a high school.
>>
>>100595061
Well, every culture can be fascinating.
>>
>>100595115
Japanese girls are so ugly, they have to act cute and put on childish animal-ears to attract boys.

In the west a beautiful face is all you need to fall in love.
>>
>Japanese culture
>haunted house
>maid cafe
>not reading Japanese poetry or painting ukiyo-e
Plebs without the spirit of Yamato.
>>
>>100595196
It has been only a tradition for like 10 years, when fucking moe-shows became popular.

Japanese were not complete faggots in the 70ies, 80ies and 90ies.
>>
>>100595239
Western girls don't show their faces. They just stick their asses in the air and shake them.
>>

Let's talk about why Kirie is best girl.

Japan has no culture, it was all but destroyed in World War II.

This isn't really true. A lot of people only have roots to modern TV culture. A lot of America is really fucking shallow.
>>
>>100595611
don't forget the much more extensive conventional bombing across Japan
A bit like Berlin Japan has had to build completely anew with almost everything of historical and cultural value lost.
why do you think Japan's culture is so centred on superficial and commercial shit like anime?
>>
>>100594437
>superior culture
>cheap incomplete copy of Chinese
>>
>>100594319
Because it's a cultural festival, not a multicultural festival.

nigga, please. the number of sluts is the same in the west as in japan. the equivalent of that girl toin japan would be ganguro.
>>
>>100595711
What is your definition of culture again? Because as far as I can see, Tanabata, Visiting shrines on New Year, hinamatsuri, and a whole lot of other things are Japanese culture.
>>
>>100595790
I didn't say there's nothing like that in japan at all. But if this holds true for ugly women, then it should hold true for beautiful women too.

That anon was arguing: beautiful west > ugly east, when ugly west < beautiful east also holds true.
>>
>>100595929
why cherry-picking? on average, western women really do look better than japanese ones.
>>
>>100596022
I have a major in otaku culture and I am inclined to disagree with your opinion, sir.
>>
>>100594319
Why does America call themselves free when their government spies on them?
>>
>>100594463
Well, they didn't enslave and ship them in droves, so I guess they did.
>>
>>100594585
That's how culture evolves. Take things about the past and adapt it to the present.
>>
back in highschool I tried to get a cultural festival going but no one wanted to do it going to school where 80 percent of the population is all niggers sucked ass, I missed out on so much, the anime club was just me and this goth chick who wasn't even into anime
>>
>>100596327
She was into you.
>>
>>100594319
The culture the festival celebrates is the culture of the school.
Specifically, the culture clubs, although everyone else participates as well. It's distinct from a festival which celebrates the sports clubs.
