"Why is it fair to ask foreigners to work in a Japanese style environment? Just because we're in Japan?" You're here. Its Japan. Get used to it.

"How about not calling non Japanese people gaijin, it sets a bad example to people wanting to learn english." Again. Get used to it. That word isn't going to magically dissappear from the lexical stock any time soon.

"Start fighting for the very people you are supposedly trying to speak for here." Again. This is Japan. No fighting.

"No I don't know what speaking Japanese has to do with teaching or learning ENGLISH." Ahem. Right. Try dealing with non-English speaking staff for one. Try minding unruly kids or those that can't comprehend a word you've just said using only English. Just learn teh Japanese.

Relating to Japanese in business and daily life is not brain surgery if you become as astute and observant as "they" are of "us."
