Greetings, programs, from all of us at J-List!
English grammar is sometimes too difficult for Japanese to accept, so they “reduce” it to be easier for all Japanese to understand. If you buy shampoo in Japan, you’ll have many brands of “rinse in shampoo” to choose from. (We’ve also got some “Vitamin C In Candy” in stock today.) Movie titles are sometimes “trimmed” in this manner — You’ve Got Mail was released as You Got Mail, since it’s easier for Japanese to digest in that way. Many Japanese words get similarly “adjusted” when they enter use in English, with the original meanings changed. “Hara-kiri” is ritual Japanese disembowelment that was done in the Edo Period, but it somehow managed to enter English usage pronounced “hairy carry,” meaning to commit suicide. In Japan, a hibachi (hee-ba-chee) is a kind of heart that was built into houses 100 or more years ago, for cooking or warmth, but in English it’s a cute little barbecue for apartment-dwellers. Language is fun.
I am a big fan of sushi, and eat it whenever I get the chance. As you can expect, sushi is pretty popular here in Japan, although in land-locked Gunma Prefecture, right in the middle of the main Japanese island of Honshu, we’re as far from fresh fish as one can be. There are many sushi restaurants, including expensive restaurants where a licensed professional chef cuts the fish for you (you have to have a license to prepare sushi in Japan) and “mawari-zushi” (where you wait for your sushi to come along on a conveyor belt). But the best sushi in all of Japan (at least in my experience) is a place called Edokko, in Narita City (near the airport), a fabulous place with “neta” (the fish part of the sushi) so big and fresh it falls off the rice. If you’re ever laid over in Narita, stop by for some good sushi. (To get there, go to the train station and say “Edokko sushi?” to any taxi driver, and they’ll point you in the right direction).

J-List has many unique products for fans of Japan, and one of the most wacky are our own Wacky Japanese T-shirts, which contain funny messages in Japanese like “Looking for a Japanese Girlfriend” or “Hen na Gaijin” (‘m a Strange Foreigner). Wearing these funky shirts are great ways to shock Japanese people you run into, who will wonder why you got a shirt like that (they may want to take a picture of you). Please note that we’re always closing out our current stock of shirts to make room for new designs, so most of the shirts we have in stock now won’t be available in the future — so you should get yours now while we have the design and sizes you want. The shirts are all printed in the USA and all sizes are American sizes, and we have size M through XXL in most of the shirts.
