China Bans Japanese Clothes… In Japan


China has seen to it that Japanese clothing is banned from an upcoming APEC summit to be held in Japan.

The APEC summit, to be held this year in Yokohama, will see Asia-Pacific leaders gather to discuss various issues, primarily economic.

Traditionally the summit location rotates through the member nations and a noted part of the event is a photo opportunity in which leaders dress up in the national costume of the host (as can be seen above with the premiers of Japan and China embracing each other whilst dressed in traditional Chinese clothing).

This year however, Japan has once again succumbed to Chinese pressure and cancelled the leadership cosplay event entirely.

Some sources connected with the event have tried explain the change as “in order to show signs of economy amidst a financial crisis” but others have frankly admitted “it was because China disapproved.”

Wearing traditional Japanese clothing, or even clothes which can be mistaken for it, is on occasion enough to provoke attack by mainland Chinese, and Hu Jintao probably did not wish to be shown so dressed, although this does not explain why he did not simply refrain himself.

    Rather, China should be the only one not in traditional Japanese clothing. Make it easier for the snipers to find them.

    And they would be the only oddballs there not wearing the Japan traditional clothes ( but I doubt about it, since Japan'se government has already succumbed to China and now licking its ass )

    you don't need tradition be an honorable person all you need is absolute justice which consists of fairness, honesty, integrity, mercy, and a good heart.

    and @Tex_Arcana china is putting their proud history to shame too at this rate.
    if they were really honorable they would respect the autonomy and traditions of other countries instead of trying to scare/threat them into submission

    what does that have to do with anything if you have even a sense of justice its good enough for one to be honorable but if somebody had absolute justice then they would the epitome of honor.

    and if you are looking for an example of absolute justice I got one and its the mean of two extremes, selfishness and selflessness. If one can attain that perfect balance of selfishness and selflessness then they are absolutely just.

    Well guys, I have to admit what anon @12:08 said was true, that China is a bully but not an admirable one. But my point is even if they are the bullies, what can Japan do? Nowadays, almost anything that is related to money must go through China, and this includes America. If China were to get pissed off by Japan, Japan is screwed. But as you can see Japan is try to act as mature as possible(unlike China which is nuts) trying to avoid conflict. Why you ask? Simple. Japan is putting their people first, and from WW2, they know all to well that pride is useless and their people is most important and they will give up their pride(although not entirely). Whereas China has never felt this kind of power and this feeling of pride before. And now that they have it, they are enjoying every moment of it, just like Japan during WW2.

    Yes, it seems that Japan is making dumb decisions, causing them to lose their pride but it is not because their are stupid, it's because it is for the greater good of their country. Before long, it will be your turn too America.

    But I also believe that this is only the first phase. If I am the strategist in this I will give a weak impression to the enemy. If they continue to harass you. You finish them off with one decisive blow. You learn that from zen lolz. But by looking weak, your enemy will let his guard down and all his weaknesses will be shown(like how China is too full of themselves).

    Besides I believe that the Sengoku36 thing was a conspiracy. I believe that the government let the video to be "accidentally" leaked. They probably paid him tons of cash and secure a future for his family.

    Well this is only my point of view. Who knows what the Japanese are thinking. Have you seen their weird advertisements?:
    They are crazy I tell you!

    @Anon 20:58 Not at this level or this kind of power. Look, in WW2, the Japanese kill the Chinese as if it was as easy as breathing(that was how weak the Chinese were). But now you can see that not just are they capable of avenging their ancestors, they can pretend this has nothing to do with revenge but it is "justice" because of the Senkaku incident. And on top of that, the Japanese can't say anything. Decades ago, if this were to happen, China and Japan will have an all out war. Clear and simple. But now, because of China's control in the economics, Japan can't touch them(for now). They can't even back talk them.

    You see, to China, it's like killing without the need to pull the trigger. Has China ever have this kind of power before? Nope. The best weapon is the weapon that you don't have to fire. Hey, China now owns this weapon. That is how powerful China is. Not to mention,in history China was only powerful around the area of Asia but today, every country in the WORLD that hopes to succeed have to go through China. China was never this powerful and arrogant before.

    In history, China was powerful around Asia. Today, the whole world. I think that world > Asia. No doubt they were powerful and arrogant before. Just not as much as today.

    I agree with Yama-jii's line about deception, no matter how you look at it, it's really awkward to see that a powerhouse like Japan is being so submissive and docile.

    " Hide your fangs in plain sight and wait for the target to show it's soft underside then pounce on him like a bolt of lightning out of a clear blue sky. " => Something you shouldn't underestimate.

    Are they taking out their grudges slowly on a country which nearly decimated half of their own lands over half a century ago when most of the people who lived through that era are either six feet under already or walking wilted prunes as of now? If that's the case then their government is the biggest sourgrape regime in the history of mankind...

    Wait, let me get this straight - the GOVERNMENT of your native homeland acts in a disgraceful way, causing you to be EMBARRASSED to be called CHINESE? Being CHINESE is so much more than what CHINA does; what do you expect from a GOVERNMENT that clings onto empty Marxist rhetorics; some Chinese believe that Russia is still the USSR from back then. It's ABSOLUTELY NOT their fault. I went for an exchange program in Beijing and found the Chinese to be very welcoming, kind, and the articles I read on Sankaku that pop up every so often (ie. condom hairbands, architecture failures, etc) are simply one facet of the country. People who judge an extremely complex country like China, especially today, by simply looking at one facet aren't even worth arguing against.

    You know, OP, China has a long and proud history. Just because douchebags like to invoke it doesn't reflect on you.

    More functional policies will necessarily require economizing of ceremony.
    Whether that's China's purpose or not, they make a valid point.

    The chinese living like fucking monkeys for a couple thousand years does not make a "long and proud history".

    Not only the Chinese, perhaps there were worst ones, e.g. the countries who brought slaves to the Americas must have been proud, right? In history, humans can be beings that are lower than monkeys; monkeys wouldn't "do genocide/holocaust" on others, but humans would.
