When you learn the proverbs of a culture, you become closer to the spirit of that culture. These are a beautiful selection of proverbs courtesy of Mitsuhito Fujita, our friend (and wonderful Mightyverse engineer) in Japan. Fujita-san recited these proverbs from memory, and they should be familiar to most native Japanese speakers. They were recorded across from his office at Knowledgelink
in the Akasaka prefecture in Tokyo, on a very hot Summer day, with the sound of cicadas almost drowning out his voice.
