Japanese journalism quotes

“in 50 years his biggest published scoop, [Toshiya Matsuzaki] boasts proudly, was spotting that the Emperor Hirohito had acquired a Mickey Mouse watch after a visit to Disneyland” pg 129
“It’s not that the Japanese media are as aggressive as, say, Fleet Street in full cry can be… Being pursued by Japanese newsmen is more akin to being caught up in a flock of sheep softly nuzzling you to death” Princess Masako pg 136

“I never called my writing criticism because I could never write anything bad or nasty” The ballet reviewer Prince Takamado, quoted in Princess Masako pg 144, but that pretty much sums up all critics in Japan
