As a fast growing country in Asia, Japan is placed on higher country, neither in government
rule connected with social community or in the economy system. The growth of the country has
attracted public attention that makes people want to learn the Japanese language. Many high quality
of Japan products are enjoyed by the Indonesian people, especially the ones that connected with
media, such as comic books, anime, and play. The problem is whether the students of Japanese
language that learning the Japanese language in the university are interested in studying it because of
the influence of the products. After doing field research on four different universities that having
Japanese Departments, it can be concluded that the influence does not exist. The students choose
Japanese Literature because they like Japan and want to learn the language.
