The Japanese covet important symbols - their heroic past as enshrined in Yasukuni, the Imperial family which has never been sullied by scandal.
F. Sionil Jose

The most beautiful thing that I learned, I learned from my kids. They were eight and ten - and they were playing with Moroccan kids in these humble villages, and they were playing with the Japanese kids... because they haven't built those walls that we have as adults. They are basically pure, and they understand each other with their eyes.
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
