Interesting, odd, outrageous or informative quotes about Japan

Japan as Discworld quote of the day

“What’s behind the new lawlessness and aggression? Ironically, much of the problem stems from the highly publicized police crackdown on organized crime and Tokyo’s naughty nightlife, according to [Friday Journalist Ikko Ono]. As the police have driven professional criminals and sleazy touts out of the nightlife districts, university students and other young people have moved in. Without the looming presence of the gangsters, they feel safer — and thus more brazen — than before, he says.”
