Quote Japan

Interesting, odd, outrageous or informative quotes about Japan

Reuters- Japanese quotes from the most famous news agency

“People have a view of the Japanese as quite conformist, but the number of people asking us to do something we’ve never seen before is the highest in the world.”Matthew Bennett, general manager of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars in Japan, Quoted by Reuters 7 January 2008

“Those people hanging around Ginza, they are just showing off. If someone has it, other people want it. That’s Japanese. The group mentality.”A 45 year old Japanese super rich business owner, as quoted by Reuters on 7 January 2008. It seems even people trying to be different can be explained as a Japanese herd mentality!??

Both quotes from the article “Japan’s New Rich” on 7 January 2008
