internationally national

Too often people here complain that Japanese TV programmes rarely feature non-Japanese. For me it's not such a big surprise, considering this is Japan.

Well anyway, after watching television last night, I won't here these complaints a minute more.

For I saw before me a show of international proportions. It was as if the United Nations had convened right in front of me on a Japanese light entertainment show.

There was an American, a Chinese woman, an Indian guy, a Mexican and a bloke from Russia. Not a single Japanese person in sight, even though they were all speaking with thick Japanese accents.


Don't let the false noses and wigs trick you into thinking these are Japanese actors playing the parts of people from other places.


A true real life man from Mexico. He must be, I mean, look at his hat and his poncho.


International people getting along together in a sushi shop.


The Russian man talks about his Japanese ancestors.


Here the Mexican gentleman eyes up a ball of sushi.
