Oh the NHK man. I think every foreigner in Japan has a story that involves the NHK man. For those not in the know, Japan has is own National broadcast channel which is government funded. Like CBC in Canada and BBC in England. Like in England there is a fee for television in Japan, and like in England a government representative will come by your home and ask you to pay for your NHK viewing. Unlike in England, if you politely tell them you don’t have a TV then you really don’t have to pay anything because they don’t argue and can’t fine you.

Hope you guys are enjoying the ride.

cheers,

Jeff
