This is good news for both countries. And though it'd be nice if we could see lots of British foods and brands in the shops after this, and at a reasonable price, I know not to hold my breath!

As anyone in Japan knows, time is on Japan's side as they can wait for eternity, e.g., long endless meetings with no point. The UK is well-advised to hold out for a good deal and not sign in haste.

Not going to happen in a hurry. It's not time is on your side it's more to do everything to avoid the population from realising there is actually nice foods, not just curry rice. Or bland sliced cheese. The JA will fight any opening of markets.

Absolutely right! Plus, not wanting the JP population to realise that good food doesn't have to be so expensive either.

I don't know about you guys, but I tend to eat a lot of chicken, pork and beef, and find the Japanese quality very good and fresh. I have no real complaints about access to good food.

Good to see the Brexit fear mongerers wrong yet again.

There is more than a whiff of desperation in the British negotiating position.
