Duty in Japanese is 義理 which is read giri. The Japanese word giri is commonly translated as "duty" or "obligation" and refers to the feeling of obligation one has (should have) to repay what one has received from others - from parents, friends, bosses, teachers, and so on. giri is what one is duty bound to do and is often contrasted with Humanity (ninjou) which is what one should do because it is the right thing to do. For more information see the Wikipedia article article Giri.
