I remember a comment a few years ago about Perl6 picking up the Japanese style quotation marks「 and 」for some purpose. Might have been tongue in cheek.

「 and 」are indeed used in Perl 6 when textually representing a Match object (the Match.gist). See https://docs.perl6.org/language/unicode_ascii for other acceptable unicode characters (and their ASCII counterparts) in Perl 6.
