"There are two japanese words you should know, Tatemae, the way things appear, Honne, the way they really are.
When you look at Japan, you see the most modern and westernised of Asian countries, but this is Tatemae, the surface.
Honne is the true heartbeat of my country which is more than 2.000 years old. It has nothing to do with the west.

(from the movie “Emperor”)
