    Interesting.  Never having been to Nippon I had no way of knowing that. 
     
    Still yet another reason to question what one reads/sees on the net.

    And vast credit to the people of Pittsburgh for resisting such tragic results from losing their core industry.  Talk about "the tale of two cities"!
