This is a fine instance of a certain characteristic of the Japanese of which I must speak more fully in another connection, but which, for convenience, I term "nominality."
This, for the sake of simplicity, I venture to call "nominality."
"roundaboutness," it seems to me that "nominality" is due to the nature of the old social order.
