Anti-Japanese bumper sticker, Qingdao, China

anti_Japanese_Qingdao_China
Anti-Japanese stuff, usually bumper stickers, aren’t uncommon in Qingdao, but neither are they something we see often.
We’ve come across similar ones before: “Japanese and dog no nearing”

And then of course there’s also Our neighbourhood’s anti-Japanese restaurant.

Well, at least they’re honest…

We’re playing a Taboo-style English exercise where I give a student a word and she has to make her classmates guess it, but she can’t say the word or certain specified related words. I give one mid-20’s female student Japanese, along with China and island.

“Who do we all hate?”
“Japanese!”

It was the fastest correct guess all class.
