Ha! This is pretty funny. We do this all the time of course in the entertainment industry, but to be this sloppy is really bad.

One trick we often use (one particular vocaloid talent especially) is to put mirrors on the walls and shoot from low angles. A crowd of 100 will look like a few thousand in a dark room with fast moving cameras.

smithinjapan - actually it's probably about 95% about religion for us. Showing proper respect for the ancestor. The very small political element is that Japanese politicians understand that they are elected by the people of Japan. If they go to Yasukuni and show respect, they get votes. The leaders of China or Korea do not cast votes in domestic elections, and so their opinions are not important.

It's the way to keep the old boys network in place and for guys to go out and screw around on their wives and families under the guise of work.

There's no need to say that out loud! Let's stick to the tatemae, ok?

Japanese people do have the chance to buy American cars. Guess what? The steering wheel is on the wrong side! Japanese makers have been successful in the states because they adapted the product to suit the US market. US car makers haven't done the same. If you want to talk about non-tariff barriers, I think the mentality of the American automakers has to be the #1 barrier.

There is simply no way we are going to buy non-Japanese made cars in large numbers. We already have great cars that suit our needs.

When I was in America, I saw "Buy American" campaigns all over. Here people tell me we shouldn't "Buy Japanese."

Why in the world would Japanese people buy American cars? We support our domestic makers and jobs here in Japan.

She is correct, but maybe for the wrong reasons. It is meaningless to protest nuclear power in Japan because it's not going anywhere! Even if we elected an entire parliament of anti-nuclear politicians, they won't be able to do anything about it.

I love Otoshi. It shows the personal touch of the chef who is making your food.
