    ARUDOU DEBITO ON NATURALIZING IN JAPAN.  Writeup from KQED-FM, San Francisco NPR:

    “Pacific Time correspondent Arudou Debito in Sapporo, Japan, gives the first of three talks on the why and how of the process he underwent as a Caucasian American to become a naturalized Japanese citizen — which was officially granted on 10 October 2000.”

    Duration four minutes, broadcast on KQED-FM’s Pacific Time weekly radio segment December 14, 2000.

    This is a time capsule of attitudes a decade ago, mere weeks after becoming a Japanese citizen.  Enjoy.  Arudou Debito still in Sapporo

    1. ABC Says:

      It made a lot of sense to me, Debito, but the music? What was that? I my mind you’d dressed up as a performing entertainer in a bowler and red nose, making the kids laugh…

      …oh, you are Japanese now, and no longer either help or trouble, right?!

      – I didn’t choose the music. KQED’s Pacific Time did. It’s their show. When it’s my show, I choose Duran Duran, natch.
