    Um, I lived in Tokyo for five year (and loved it) and I live in China now. Rather surprised to hear Beijing is a sister city of Tokyo. From what I’ve been able to gather, the Chinese aren’t that interested in promoting and spreading Japanese culture. They tend to think the Japanese have already tried that once…
