Quote Japan

Interesting, odd, outrageous or informative quotes about Japan

Gambarimasu spirit quote of the day

“Before I left he told me how the fishermen of Hokkaido exemplified the Japanese character. ‘Foreign fishermen,’ he explained, ‘will take only the fish they know they can sell and throw the rest back. But Japanese fishermen will keep fishing till their boats are full, even though it means they’ll have to sell their catch at half price. We Japanese are waakaahorikku (workaholics). We do everything with a vengeance.” Alan Booth in The Roads to Sata, pg 14
