Why is valentine's day more popular culturally in Japan than in America?


Or is it just anime propaganda to stir up shit for romcoms?
>>
It is not just Japan. In Korea, Taiwan and China it is kinda big.

I still think that is because it is far easier to market ideas/products to asian than to western people.
In Japan especially if there is one restaurant shown on TV, it gets popular, no matter how shitty the food is. I experienced it quite often that some of my japanese friends wanted to go to restaurants just because they were shown on TV:

Thats why I guess that its quite easy to market Valentines Day to them.

Really?

Though Christmas doesnt seem as big. Sony didnt release PS4s for them before christmas/new years

Are you kidding? It's huge in America too. You need to get out more. There's more people at places like Walmart, local grocery stores, and mall from a couple of days before until after V-day itself buying valentines gifts.
