Japan. I would have vastly more freedom, an uncensored internet, the power of having actual opposition parties that have meaning, and the power to criticize the government without penalties.
The old regime may be gone, parts of capitalism have been implemented - but the communist party is undoubtedly still in control of the nation, with all the problems that causes.
China is horrendous.
There is CCTV footage of a toddler being run over repeatedly in China whilst groups of people just walk past looking at her with disinterest. Yup, that actually happened in China. Likely the most awful thing I've ever seen.
If you take someone to hospital you can be liable for their bills so people just pretend not to see you.
Chinese guy here who returns to China from Australia annually to visit family, although I do feel at home at China with all my friends and family there and I adore my heritage as well as Chinese culture, Japan is objectively more suitable for me due to my western upbringing and customs, it definitely feels more modernised compared to China which holds onto a lot of dated political and social ideals.
