"thought control" has been an important and integral part of how Japanese society, including its culture, has been trained by its rulers. TV is a big part of that nowadays.

The association of doves with peace is a western idea. In Japan the dove is a symbol of Hachiman, commonly known as the God of War.

the sentos stopped being mixed in the meiji era because the rulers of Japan wanted to appear civilized, not because of foreign pressure. The onsens were mostly mixed until the 80's when the "onsen boom" began and younger people started visiting them. before that it was mostly old people and they were quite comfortable with mixed bathing. trying to blame the US occupation is off base . 20th century Japanese had learned to be prudish and believe it to be "traditional"

When the rest of the world made a complete ban on asbestos Japan waited ten years because of the harm such a ban would do to the economy. It is estimated 15,000 deaths can/will be attributed to this wait.

Not sure that it is so true for all English-speaking countries.... the U.S. for sure.... also, a year or so ago they ran an article on the huge reduction in subtitled movies in Japan.....
