"Kuzo thought Kentucky Fried Fish matched up to English fish and chips quite smashingly"
I hope Kuzo has tried real fish and chips in Britain, rather than the noxious substitutes in so-called British pubs in Japan, because the description he gives of them here doesn't sound at all like the real thing. I doubt that KFC could actually make a tasty version of anything if their chicken is anything to go by.

kwatt, of course there is an Indian summer in Japan (we have just been experiencing one) -- that's what we call it in English. What you said is like saying there is no zansho in Europe -- there is, but we call it an Indian summer!

I'm amused that my first comment about upskirt photography and the Japanese police bulk-buying this product was removed after 10 minutes because your editors said it was "off topic", when all the other comments on this subject have been about this "topic".

This kind of product should not be allowed, as it could possibly facilitate ease of clandestine usage in what can only be termed secret pornographic recordings on, for example, trains.

The Japanese should grow up and not worry about visiting countries that hate them. After all, if only visiting countries that like you became the norm, there wouldn't be any British tourists anywhere. The Brits, however, don't care if the natives hate them as long as they can get English beer, milk tea and all day breakfasts.
