Event in Japan sees grown-ups and kids alike wandering into a giant Anus

No, there’s no visual trickery at hand here; you are seeing that image right: a person really is walking into a giant, inflatable butt. At a children’s event held in Saitama City, just outside of Tokyo.
If you are wondering what a giant inflatable butt is doing at a family-oriented event, you’re not alone, as the scene has a number of people concerned for the future of Japan.
This rather graphic scene is actually a part of an exhibit geared towards children about bodily functions, called Karada no Fushigi Daibouken (Mysteries of the Body Adventure), which you might better know as Grossology, an attraction that has gained popularity at science museums across North America.
The biology-themed event is aimed at teaching kids the science behind all the gross things about our bodies, like boogers, burps, and yes, even poop.
Of course we all know that everybody poops, and it’s also important for kids to learn about how our bodies work. Teaching science in a fun and exciting way that keeps kids interested and entertained is crucial to building a love of learning, and Grossology does just that. However, the verdict is still out about whether walking into a giant butt-crack is entirely necessary for that.
If you’re in the Tokyo area and would like to do some, um, learning for yourself, the Karada no Fushigi Daibouken will be at the Saitama Super Arena until August 22, open from 10am to 5pm (last entry at 4:30). Tickets for adults are 1,600 yen (US$12.87), and 900 yen for children. Don’t forget to bring your sense of potty humor!

Do you hate Japan, /jp/?
I'm not talking about your precious doujin games and visual novels, I'm talking about the post-Meiji era nation, culture and its people.
The blatant propaganda in the media, ranging from convincing otaku to get married to real girls, to other more delicate things like radical right-wing jingoistic and revanchist military propaganda made with the sole purpose to either get people to join the JSDF or increase the support of radical right-wing parties.
The degenerate work culture that drives you to an early grave where you live to work as opposed to work to live.
The massive xenophobia and hatred to anything that is considered 'not normal'.
The hivemind-like society where no one is an individual with his own opinion but rather everyone is an exact cell living in the same body; you will never hear an 'I' from a Japanese person, you will always hear 'we'.
The huge number of suicides committed by young people due to depression and not being able to fit in with the hivemind mentality.
The massive number of unreported crimes which gives Japan the false image of a safe country.
The sheer number of corrupt politicians, some who aren't even afraid to admit their crimes.
The hypocrisy among the Japanese when it comes to Hiroshima and Nagasaki, where they treat it as the worst tragedy ever and pretend to be victims, while acting like other tragedies like the Nanjing Massacre are nothing in comparison, and some go as far as to consider it a heroic deed.
So, do you hate Japan? Why or why not?
I am curious about all the different opinions and views on this subject, and please, let's have a civil discussion without resorting to ad hominem.
