一言居士
– A person who has something to say about everything

Many people say that the Japanese value the harmony of the group, as opposed to the American sense of individualism. But if that were true, Japanese city streets would look more harmonious than they actually do. In fact, the Japanese sense of individuality is very strong.

– Matsunaga Shingo, author and lecturer on disaster economics at Kansai University
