謝罪 – Apology

Japan has some fixation with Apologies.
Although “sorry” is used quite often, an apology , bowing down is respected.

Recent sexual harassment story was followed with an appropriate (?) apology , covered extensively in news reports this morning.

To me it doesn’t look real, especially when he denied all accusations for several days and seen smiling going out from the room.

This reminded me a movie I saw (on a plane) called 謝罪の王様 (”The Apology King”), of an apology expert helping his customers getting away from their mistakes/misdeeds.
