The terrible fate of Japan Quote of the day

“Alas! Japan could be another New Zealand” Shiga Shigetaka writing in 1886, unfortunately not about the chances of being overun by sheep or bungee jumping but rathe being defeated by the British like the Maori, but made me laugh anyway.

From “The History of Japan”by Kenneth Henshall pg 75
