    Emperors, anime icons and porn stars show up in six-nation survey of famous Japanese

    Emperors, anime icons and porn stars show up in six-nation survey of most famous Japanese people

    Originally posted by Japan Today
    Over the last few decades, Japanese media and celebrities have been making inroads into popular culture overseas. South Korean audiences follow trendy Japanese TV dramas, American youths marathon anime through online streaming services, and sports fans cheer on Japanese athletes at venues around the globe. Amidst this evolving media environment, the Tokyo-based Japan Pres Research Institute has been carrying out annual awareness surveys, asking people of other nations what they know and feel about Japan. In the latest iteration, the organization spoke to roughly 1,000 participants each in the U.S., the UK, France, China, South Korea, and Thailand. In one part of the study, respondents were asked to give, if they could, the name of a famous Japanese person, living or dead, that they knew.

    I love how nearly all of them have fictional characters I wonder what New Zealand's list would be... I get the idea that people here don't know much about Japan
