Why do some Japanese think they are superior to Han Chinese?

I doubt the premise of your question,because a great many Japanese businesses now prefer employing Chinese college graduates to employing Japanese ones.
I sometimes talk with a 20-year-old Chinese student. She speaks Chinese, English, French and Japanese. She is able to do atthe age of 20 what I am barely coming to be able to at 47. And unlike me, sheis not a linguistics major.

Actually, just today I experienced something like superiority over Chinese from a Japanese.
A japanese customer of mine received his shipment late due to the Chinese National holidays. In his email to me, which I translated using google translate, it says
“You Chinese are only so so. Not efficient at all compared to us Japanese. There is no excuse for being late. We Japanese are always punctual.It is an insult to customers when we give excuse for being late. Chinese have along way to go before they learn what it is to be at our level of existence.”
Now, firstly I’m not chinese, I’m Singaporean. I just operate from China that’s all. So I explain to him in myreply to him that I’m Singaporean and the delay is due to the Chinese National holidays where everybody is not working for a week.
His reply (which again is tranlated bygoogle)
“So sorry for the misunderstanding. It must not be your fault then, Idid not know you are not Chinese. I know Singaporeans are very professional.You would not have delayed the shipment if you do not have to. The chinese are really unbearable. It is so inefficient to have 1 week holiday. Japanese will never allow this to happen, it is a disgrace. Chinese is really only so so. It must be difficult for you to work with such people.”
