In Japanese culture, blood groups are very important. Many people believe what blood group you are denotes your personality and people play games trying to guess what you are and might even pick a husband/wife according to it. People may even get discriminated against because of their blood group.

“It sometimes manifests itself as prejudice and discrimination, and it seems this is so common, the Japanese now have a term for it – bura-hara, meaning blood-type harassment. There are reports of discrimination against type B and AB groups leading to children being bullied, the ending of happy relationships, and loss of job opportunities.”http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-
