      was a very popular Japanese "travel" program back in the 80s that should have been translated as "Peculiar and Embarrassingly Stupid Japanese" for a number of their shows.  Quite an entertaining show.  

      "Out of Many, One Nation." This is the great promise of the United States of America -9.75 -6.87

        and Japanese local color.

        "Stupid Foreigners Behaving Badly" recaps what the 70s/80s original was up to.

        In Japan, the mentally ill are institutionalized, overwhelmingly. The Japanese really didn't know what to make of other cultures' OCDs, schizophrenics, etc. They hardly ever see mental illnesses face to face. So the show did quite well.
