The President on Japanese Democracy

As you embraced democracy, you adapted it to your own needs and circumstances. So Japanese democracy is different from American democracy. You have a prime minister, not a president. Your constitution allows for a monarchy that is a source of national pride. Japan is a good example of how a free society can reflect a country’s unique culture and history while guaranteeing the universal freedoms that are the foundation of all genuine democracies.

–President George W. Bush, Kyoto, Japan on 11/16/05
