A Realist : In Hinduism, the symbol (not tilted) with arms pointing clockwise is called swastika, symbolizing surya (sun), prosperity and good luck, while the counterclockwise symbol is called sauvastika, symbolizing night or tantric aspects of Kali. These have existed and were used since 2000 BC.

The NBN : "It looks like it could be the logo of a band." Hans and the Flammenwerfer.

Maja_ Milla : Basically in germany you would went straight in jail just by drawing it. so for several years.

Ruvbx : I don’t think the Japanese should accommodate or stop using that manji symbol because they don’t mean harm and it is part of their culture (1600). BUT do think they should be aware of how it also represents the swastika... it is part of their own history with ww2 and should not forget just because it paints them in a bad way.

SCP 096 : They forgot there allies that fast?! EDIT- I bet in Japan , they don't teach how they took a big L in WW2 .

Shahar C : I'm SHOCKED they don't know what a reverse swastika means.

aaria chaudhary : I wonder how foreigners react when they see swastika symbol at temples in india???

Dawood Williams : The old timer got it right. He makes the most sense

Cat Hell : I’m Japanese and I think the editor of this video picked up only idiots or low-education people in Japan. Most of us know the history. Mass media can control the images of the fact and people be easily misinformed . That’s why I really hate them
