Af»AN Japan ... a nation where Geisha girls were real . . . a nation where we would soon learn that ohio now meant " good morning; " that many of the women loved yen more than they did the sailors; yes, we were to learn much from these smart industrious people. We would soon understand why they read boots from tack to front; why they loved Mt. Fuji as much as we did our Statue of Liherty ; why Sukiyaki the fried meat, raw egg dish tasted hetter with a hottle of wine called saki ; why honey buckets didn ' t smell like honey; why hot Laths were so popular; why rickshaws could never replace the Ford; and why their Coal miner Dance-Tanko-Bushi-could lie a threat to our Funny Hop. We watched crowded cities of crowded souls push into crowded homes. We warmed our hands over hihachi pots. We taked to mama-san, bargained with girl-san, and photographed baby-san. It didn ' t take long to find out that benjo didn ' t mean banjo and that San Diego blondes were not to be bound. And before we were to bid our sayonaras many or us would become American-Asiatics and be squared away to the ways of Japan and the Orient.
