Hare Hare Usagi?
Whoo. Since the C-blog has been getting all the attention, I have neglected the worthy Japanese blog here! Never fear, I've been working on a project...
Being the auto buff that I am, I usually like to look at collectible vehicular merchandise.
And this caught my eye.
The 1955, Sports Cars Illustrated. Which, although a magazine about cars, features an article that discusses the sports car phenomenon sweeping Japan, but doesn't much talk about cars. Rather this is the story of a man on a car club race, and his conversation with his honorable, young Japanese navigator, with both of them wondering, "what does HARE mean anyway?"
It's a story about cultural barriers, having fun, sunny days, and... stomach tumors?
Be especially sure to check out the part where the author lists out the Engrish "Rules of the Road"!
You might not be able to write a story like this today, especially with the changes Japanese culture has faced in this, some half a century later.
But, I'll let you be the judge. I have retyped the article as it was written in the pictured issue of the magazine.
