I'm slightly curious about the way Japanese teenage boys, or at all the Japanese population express their feelings. Can you help me?

I'm very interested in the Japanese culture, so please try to help me out as much as you can, thanks!!

From what I heard, its essential for a Japanese to appear calm and polite at all time. Personal emotion must not be shown, except to close family members. Its seen as rude to bother strangers with personal feelings.
Thats why sometimes Japanese report about how they lost their family, the house, the dog and everything else, with a facial expression as if they would speak about last weekends picnic. Very puzzling for westerners.

According to studies that have been done on Japanese culture, the expression of emotions is considered to be a collective thing. This means that Japanese people share their feelings with the outside surrounding rather than themselves. Check out v for more details on this.

Japanese people are friendly and are fun loving people who love electronics.They have their own distinct culture and have true faith on God.
