Quote Japan

Interesting, odd, outrageous or informative quotes about Japan

Japanese and gaijin quote of the day

“We sat next to a family that continually stared at us and whispered about us. I didn’t feel they were being unkind, I think they were simply intrigued by us, particularly by my attempts to eat… “No, not a Japanese family staring at gaijin but a British family fascinated by a woman in an Islamic full face covering struggling with a sandwich. Does sound very familiar to many gaijin, some of whom might be surprised that it happens back home too, I think.
