Midaregami: The Japan Hierarchy. The stratified hierarchy of Japanese society is mirrored onto those foreigners who choose to live in Japan. Inspired by The Geek Hierarchy.

I like it. I may have to cobble up a Korea hierarchy as well, except it would have to have another inverted tree beside it, to try and show all the ways in which Koreans simultaneously think they're superior and inferior to a whole range of people (which makes them so endearingly insane), and how that mirrors itself in the freaks-and-geeks expatriate community here.

On the other hand, that sounds like too much work.

Is there a name for Americans who are obsessed with Japanese culture? There are "anglophiles" .. Japanophile? Seems like a lot of MeFi.

I couldn't find my group: "People who loiter in front of the nearest beer vending machine until it closes and then migrate to the 24 hour beer vending machine".

Maybe its a hybrid group, or something.
