Quote Japan

Interesting, odd, outrageous or informative quotes about Japan

Tanizaki

“…since seeking beauty in this city of Tokyo is useless, can it not be said that the most agreeable place to live is Asakusa, where ugliness bares its essential form?” Unfinished novel by Tanizaki, quoted by Donald Ritchie in “Tokyo” (Reaktion Books, 1999). Now more true of Kawasaki.
