I survived the lesson pretty genkily; we had a discussion about what it means to be Japanese, and of the original list from which we later culled about 2/3rds of the items, we had

  • believe they are Japanese
  • grow up in Japanese school system
  • like to wait in long lines
  • watch NHK on New Year’s day
  • are proud of Mt Fuji

That last one intrigued me; I had not predicted it.
