Quote Japan

Interesting, odd, outrageous or informative quotes about Japan

Encyclopedia Britannica- Japanese quotes from a very fat book

“…in 1952… The Republic of China (Taiwan), the People’s Republic of China on the mainland, the Republic of Korea (South Korea), and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) all possessed military establishments far larger than what became Japan’s Self-Defense Forces” A statistic that puts a bit of sense behind the rearming of Japan during the Cold War, CIA conspiracies aside.

“Japan’s post-occupation relationship with the United States was founded on the 1951 security treaty. Part of the understanding that lay behind this treaty was that Japan would have access to the U.S. market in exchange for the maintenance of American bases on Japanese soil.”

Quotes above from the Encyclopedia Britannica Japan’s International Relations page
