No Japan's media made a huge fuss about the fact that he was born in Japan, that it was Japan's victory. Their media merely address Ishiguro as a British novelist who won the Nobel Prize for literature (2017). This is the complete opposite of prc media and dalurens' behaviors should something similar occur with one of theirs.

 

(update) This is an example of what I am talking about. Mari Yamaguchi, Associated Press Updated 12:01 pm, Friday, October 6, 2017

Perhaps it's related to their desire to modernize 140 years ago instead of 14 years ago...

Because the Japs are not insecure, they know how totally awesome and attractive their country is worldwide, be it the traditional aspects (samurai, temples, geisha, etc...) that are cool as fuck, the modern culture is hyper-sophisticated and civilized, even subcultures such as all the otaku stuff have dozens if hundreds of millions of followers around the world.

 

Meanwhile, how is modern China attractive to the rest of the world? And what does it have...? Pandas? LOL
