Japanese would rather leave this world than live in shame
This is the kind of nonsense people believe after having seen the film Shogun. Actually the average japanese does not live according to bushido or samurai ideals.

FYI .... Shame culture does exist in Japan
I am not saying that no japanes feel shame, but I say it is nonsense to generalize this kind of old-fasioned bushido culture to explain how japanese are behaving today. It is really stereotypical nonsense!
