NOT EXACTLY THE BEST MARKETING SLOGAN

It looks like Japan needs a new tourism slogan. "We hate foreigners but come anyway" just isn't cutting it. As reported in the Syney Morning Herald, Nariaki Nakayama, the new tourism minister, stated that the Japanese were "ethnically homogenous" and "definitely … do not like or desire foreigners".

The Japanese government probably needs to stay out of its economy. This is another example why.
