    3) Hijiki - N
    4) Oden - Y

    6) Umeboshi - Hmm, not really.
    7) Takuan - No. I like most of the tsukemono(pickles) but not Takuan.
    8) Fried fish - Yes. I don't like fish much either, but I like it if it's fried ones and raw ones. Oh wait, what's fried fish? Yakizakana? or real deep-fried fish, like ones you can get at Mc'Donalds(in Japan) or one in the Fish and Chips???
    9) Whale - Hmm... No, I guess. I haven't had them for ages.
    10) Miso soup - N

    So, 3/10 LOL
    I don't really like Daizu except for Edamame, and accordingly, I don't like things made of it. I'm so picky...and looks like I don't like healthy food much, eh.

    5) bow when you talk on the phone - Y: I don't notice me doing it myself but prolly I do.
    6) buy omiyage for your colleagues, friends or family when you go somewhere (even for a few days) - Y
    7) nod or make little sounds agreement showing that you are listenning to someone - Y: I seem to have a habit of saying "Sounan'ya." while listening to others.
    8) avoid telling people directly what you think - Hmm, Yes, I guess.
    9) avoid putting soap or foam in your bath - No. Only bath powers sometime.
    10) refrain from eating in the street or while standing/walking. - Yes. But it depends. Not in the street around my neiboughor or on my way to work, but I do eat and walk around certain places... like when I'm strolling in the China town.

    Heh, 9/10. ^^;

    Cultural adaptation
    Can you :
    1) Sleep on a futon - Y
    2) bear Japanese TV programmes - Hmm, not interested much
    3) ride a bicycle with an umbrella in one hand - N

    Can you eat/Do you like (if you don't know what it is, then "no") :

    1) Sushi - It would take death to get me to stop.
    2) Natto - Dunno, but stay tuned, because when I visit Japan on the 3rd of July we shall find out!
    3) Hijiki - Hi-jack? I thought that's why we had airmarshals.
    4) Oden - Meh, I'll eat them when I'm hungry.
    5) Tofu - Fried, in soup, battered, bruised, you serve it I'll eat it!
    6) Umeboshi - Haven't crossed that bridge yet.
    7) Takuan - Nor that one.
    8) Fried fish - Fish 'n' Chips mate!
    9) Whale - I'm a little too environmentally conscious (read: haven't had a chance to give it a whirl yet)
    10) Miso soup - I am a preferred instant miso customer at my local Japanese food supermarket, does that count?

    5/10

    Etiquette

    Do you :

    1) remove your shoes before entering your own house - I'll remove your shoes when you enter my house, whether you like it or not.
    2) slurp your ramen - only when alone, but yeah, I do.
    3) excuse yourself all the time even when you are not wrong - somewhat, so 1/2 a point I guess. Please excuse me for taking the liberty.
    4) bow (even slightly) when greeting or seeing someone off (in formal situations) - we Germans invented it, the Japanese perfected it.
    5) bow when you talk on the phone - no,I am an over-polite rigid German on the phone - must be seen to be believed.
    6) buy omiyage for your colleagues, friends or family when you go somewhere (even for a few days) - my 'colleagues' aren't worth it, well some of them anyway.
    7) nod or make little sounds agreement showing that you are listenning to someone - 'aha......hmmmm...yeah....ahhh....yeah....hmmmhmmm m..."
    8) avoid teling people directly what you think - well, I...did you see that?
    9) avoid putting soap or foam in your bath - I don't fit in a bath (6'6")
    10) refrain from eating in the street or while standing/walking - to do so would demonstrate ones lack of respect for th food...respect the food DAMMIT!

    6.5/10

    Cultural adaptation

    Can you :

    1) Sleep on a futon - I sleep where I am at, so yes.
    2) bear Japanese TV programmes - I PAY to watch animes etc. So, yes, again.
    3) ride a bicycle with an umbrella in one hand - been there, done that. Doesn't keep you dry much though.
    4) sit in "seiza" - what "seiza" do they come in?

    3/4

    Do you :

    5) like J-pop - yep.
    6) like kabuki - no.
    7) read manga - only in English (1/2 a point I guess).
    8) like sumo - yep, and I am jealous of what they get to eat all day ong...lucky S.O.B.'s.
    9) like everything that is cute - to quote my girlfriend 'PUZZONI!'. In addition, I once had a 'conversation' with a kitten. Dedication to cuteness eh?!?
    10) like "onsen" (hot spring) - if it is big enough, yes.

    4.5/6

    So..let me see...carry the one...total equals

    19/30

    I guess I'd better buy a kimono to compliment the rice cooker I just ordered.
