About This Book

Japanese Proverbs: Wit and Wisdom is filled with universal truths as well as uniquely Japanese sayings and folk wisdom which may seem cryptic and difficult to understand until you know the entire proverb that it refers to. All the proverbs are presented in Japanese script and Romanized form, along with direct English translations. Witty illustrations illuminate the proverbs and expression, and equivalent proverbs in English are given to demonstrate how, in so many ways, human nature is the same the world over.
