Was living under a self-imposed isolationist policy for centuries the reason that the Japanese are so fucking weird?

    That particular parade only dates from the 60s.
    That being said the Japanese consider westoids to be uncultured and weird.

      Those look like some pretty modern camera phones in that picture. The festival of wiener is still taking place to this day.

    The norse pagans had rituals involving horse penises, and phallic symbolism was pretty common internationally until Christianity and Islam pretty much shut it all down since they consider modesty a virtue.

      The specific text that you're citing is pretty clearly some kind of bizarre joke, but the Romans and the Greeks had lots of phallic ritualism and in the Germanic world Freyr was frequently associated with his huge dong.

      Practicing bushido.

      Carrying around a big penis, duh. This is a human universal, and it used to be a big part of Saint Cults in Europe.
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phallic_processions
      That specific big pink penis was donated by a local crossdressing club, and the whole festival involves giving money to STD charities (the God and Goddess worshiped during the festival are smithing Gods who were associated with curing STDs in premodern Japan). A local industrial conglomerate donated a solid steel penis, and the oldest of the three (yes the festival involves parading three giant penises around) is an ancient wooden one.

      There's another phallic festival where everyone drinks sake out of barrels as they follow the penis around.

        It's women carrying the phallas, they are ones who adore wiener. This should be obvious.

    My family on my father's side is Japanese and my 4th great grandfather wrote a diary when he lived in Kyoto in which he describes a time he was arrested and beat up by a group of Shinsengumi samurai due to a case of mistaken identity, and his mom and dad had to come get him out of jail. One of the samurai who beat his ass visited him afterwards and apologized by gifting him some tea cups and tea.

        idk m8 his diary is from 160 years ago and even with my fluency in Moon I could not translate much of it because the way they wrote kanji back then was like fricking scribbles.

        My father and his friend could only translate excerpts of it because it's old as shit and some pages are illegible or falling apart.

        They translated the passage from when he describes getting beaten up as something like "The men knocked me down in the dirt and stepped on me over and over again while taunting my intellect" lmao

        it's funny cause he ain't even a samurai just some pussy leather worker at the time whom they mistook for some political rival.

    Partially, sakoku did let things develop in strange directions, but it's partially just East Asian Civilization in general being different from what westerners are used to
