Quote Japan

Interesting, odd, outrageous or informative quotes about Japan

Japanese nationalism quote of the day

“One day one of the Korean students asked me if I knew Takeshima, the island in the Sea of Japan that is claimed by both Japan and Korea. There were two or three other Japanese students there, but none of knew about the place… When the Koreans said that Takeshima belonged to them… we just said, ‘Sure, go ahead. Take it.” Say what you like about the materialism and apathy of Japanese young people, but it is better than the rabid nationalism that the LDP would like to teach them…
