I studied abroad in Japan and I recently spent 3 months there. I've been from the southernmost point to just shy of the northernmost point of the country. I took 2 years of Japanese in America. I have spoken with hundreds of native Japanese people in their own country and have participated in several cultural events (not anime conventions or stupid shit like that). I've heard 2 different native Japanese college professors (one in America, one in Japan) discuss the generally milder tastes of Japanese people in their lectures. I have heard it from other native Japanese people numerous times as well. I have visited amusement parks in both America and Japan with native Japanese friends who have commented on the differences in tastes between the two cultures when it comes to rides. Of course a few of them have mentioned that they like more thrilling rides better, but most don't.
There are differences between cultures often involving tastes, perspectives and trends. Understanding these differences actually helps a person to form cultural awareness.
