If he does, he'll be mobbed by lots of fangirls. Maybe one of them can do us a favor and put super glue in his green tea.

i love this excerpt from the Japan Expo 06 website:

"[DANCE Real-life Geisha]
Speaking of real Japan, there was a movie about Geisha called "Sayuri" or "Memoirs of Geisha" last spring from Hollywood which created some controversies about what and how Geisha really is.

At Japan Expo 2006, we are going to show you a real "Geisha" we support and is show casing a documentary movie call "Hannari, Geisha-modern" Directed and Produced by Miyuki Sohara."

-------------------------------------------------------

In other words you won't see three faker ass geisha that speak Engrish with Chinese accents..... hehe hehe hehe

so that's where the kogals got idea from...it harkens back to ancient times as they pay tribute to traditional japanese culture......i'm sure that's exactly how they're portrayed at the Japan Expo.

1) Japanese cultural fact: Japanese women have blue eyes. That's how Scandanavians got blue eyes...by interbreeding with the Nihonjin. Take notes, kids.
