  1. I think because most japanese people don’t talk english, higher monetary custs, geographic distance and underdeveloped infrastructure to international tourism. But i think internal tourism can be very higher.

    • Good points! plus Anime, biggest Japanese cultural export, now is mostly broadcast one day at night in Toonami! ,in my country Mexico Dragon Ball remains a HUGE hit, but is like the only anime broadcasted in mainstream TV and at the morning … .Korean dramas may be less known in America, but in Asia many of them get the primetime, in China, Indonesia, Taiwan, etc. Most watched videos on youtube are music and at that too, Kpop is more popular than Japanese music. We will see how things change until the final of the year, when I graduate from my college 🙂

      • Yesterday i saw by television, the chinese movie, The Blue Kite. I like Dragon Ball too but i prefer Saint Seiya, because its story is divided by Sagas. This anime is well organized than Dragon Ball, little confuse to follow. Same thing about Naruto.
