Way back in 1973 three of us went on a business trip to Japan and our hosts gave each of us a camera. /QUOTE]
The Japanese have always been very keen on photography. I once took a group of Japanese businessmen on a short tour of central London. They were taking occasional photographs until we got to the statue of Eros at Piccadilly Circus. I told them that this had been regarded as the Hub of the British Empire. They went crazy. Aaah "Hub of British Empire!". They had to have a record of this and every camera was furiously clicking. Dave.
