Quote Japan

Interesting, odd, outrageous or informative quotes about Japan

Japan and the world quote of the day

“Among the rumors that went flying around the city was the imaginative one that an unnamed country of the West had developed an eathquake machine and was experimenting upon Japan. There were,nevertheless, no outbreaks of violence against.. westerners. Instead..,the nation turned on Koreans. The government urged restraint .. because the Western world might disapprove.”

Edward Seidensticker in High City Low City: Tokyo from Edo to the Earthquake. To be fair to the Japanese, as much as anti-Korean and anti-Chinese feeling still have a big impact on their day to day lives in Japan, there are much more likely to be racist riots in either of those countries, or even most European countries, than there is in Japan nowdays.
