Quote Japan

Interesting, odd, outrageous or informative quotes about Japan

Nihonjinron quote of the century

“The reason Japanese people are so short and have yellow skins is because they have eaten nothing but fish and rice for two thousand years… If we eat McDonald’s hamburgers and potatoes for a thousand years we will become taller, our skins become white, and our hair blonde”

McDonald’s Japan founder Den Fujita in 1971, quoted in Kansai Scene magazine (www.kansaiscene.com) December 2008
