Never happened - in 30 plus trips to Japan - from Hokkaido to Kyushu and Okinawa.

Invited to Graceland.....not Congress! Do you hear me laughing in Japan? (I'm in New Jersey, USA)
Actually Elvis was "the King" - thus a "Royal" invitation to the Japanese PM
US Congress - with its Netanyahu-game - is the real joke...but thanks - really hearty laughter alone at a computer is a rare treat!

"Nobody Knows," Japanese movie about 4 kids - all with different fathers - left alone by a Japanese mother...with enough cash for a week - but mom never comes home.
2 kids always sneaked into the apt. in a suitcase (only 2 children allowed in that apt - not 4)
when I leave or arrive at Narita, I sadly recall the scene where the older children stuff her body into the suitcase and leave it somewhere in the expanse of the airport.
I also - sadly - recall whenever I see Christmas Cake on Dec. 25. In the film the older kids wait outside a conveni for the price to be cut in half on Dec. 26.
Supposedly based on a true story, the older siblings are caring and competent. But the youngest climbs on a chair to reach something, and falls - possibly not a serious injury - but under these tragic circumstances, she dies.

Is this the Ishikawa Danjuro who appeared at Lincoln Center in NYC in the 1980s?and Nakamura Kanzaburo - both too young, too much time to broaden the appeal of Kabuki outside Japan - they should have had 20 or 30 more years. I live in NY, but had the privilege to see them both. ANd to interview Kanzaburo.
