In this vein, does Japan see memes in the same way we do 'in the West'?

Do the same memes migrate across to Japan? Or does pop culture there have its own?

So funny you should mention that. I was talking to a Japanese acquaintance of mine who asked me what "memes" are. Although meme-like ideas do circulate on social media, it's usually just facebook type posts to news stories. They do post funny animated gifs but compared to us, there aren't that many memes going around the Japanese internet-o-sphere in the way we know them. (i.e grumpy cat, Sarcastic Wonka etc.)

In fact, here's an article in Japanese explaining to Japanese people what a meme is. It is titled 海外では当たり前?!インターネットスラング “meme”とは? - It's obvious to Westerners but what is an internet "meme"?
