ABSTRACT
The article presents the role of argument, reasoning and logic in tacit, incomplete and indirect communication in Japan. The tacit communication is acquainted with several Japanese peculiarities. Incomplete communication is the binding factor in messages which are not directly related. Indirect communication is where the language of the message does not literally say what is means because the meaning is vague and dubious. However, Japanese anthropologist Masao Kunihiro asserted that language used as a tool for debate and argumentation is prohibited in Japan.
