these will be asked

If you come to live in Japan, I can guarantee there are certain questions that Japanese people will ask you, probably within seven days of your arrival. A word of advice - if you don't know your blood type, take a test before you come. You must, at all costs, know your blood type. Anyway, be prepared. Here are the most likely questions:

1. Do you like natto?
2. Can you use chopsticks?
3. Do you like Japanese onsen?
4. Can you ski backwards?
5. What is your blood type?
6. Why is your nose so tall?
7. Can you speak Japanese?
8. What is your favourite kind of puppy?
9. How many toes do you have?
10. Have you ever flown in the baggage hold of a 747?

Natto tastes good and is very healthy.

A bloke in the Japan Times described it as sneeze beans which I liked. It`s not so bad with some rice though.

11. Are you a Christian?
12. If not coming from a mainstream white country such as the US or Australia, you are asked every now and then what race people are in your country. (Nani kei desuka? Surabukei desuka? Ajiakei?)

11. Have you met Beckham?

A quick muck around with some pictures in Photoshop proved conclusively that, yes, I had, and yes yes, I know my head looks twice as big as his, but it's just a trick of the light. Honest.

11. Do you have 4 seasons in your country?

12. What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

I need to know in case I ever come to Japan, is skiing backwards a requirement? Also how many toes do most people have over there? I thought 12 was an average number.

Japanese Person: What's your blood type?
Me: C minus.
JP: C?
Me: Yup.
JP: But that doesn't exist!
Me: Actually, it does, but not among Japanese. Only gaijin have it.
JP: Ah, I see.
