Okay, does your answer hold true when Tokyo-to is compared to comparable geographical regions containing populations of comparable demographic distribution then? :D

Does your answer also hold true when Tokyo is compared to other cities of similar size and population density?

Does it mean that you can't find them at supermarkets in Japan? Seems like if you can buy it online then there should be shops selling them too?

@MarkMayo where do you think the best places for seafood would be? The Tsuikiji fish markets in Tokyo? Hiroshima?

comment Is it generally true that Japanese people are more reluctant to help Asian compared to Western foreigners?
@Relaxed Thanks for pointing it out, it was a little bit tricky to ask the question so I probably just got a little bit mixed up. I fixed up the question :)

comment What is a typical Australian dish which can be considered a “must-have”?
@happybuddha The original question was just about what a typical Australian dish is. I guess there might be a need to split it up into indigenous versus contemporary Australian dishes... I hear that many of the 'bush tukka' is quite good and I probably should try some out :)

comment Does knowing Japanese help in neighbouring countries?
There are actually quite a few Japanese-speaking Koreans these days, as well as Korean-speaking Japanese. It is difficult to pick as there are similarities in sounds and grammar.

@jmac You'll find that many older Taiwanese people know Japanese, mostly as a result of the Japanese occupation of Taiwan around the time when they would have been either children or students.

comment When should I bow in Taiwan?
If you are at hotels or luxury goods shops then the staff will bow to you. But in general it is not that common and you would not be expected to return a bow.
