      You spend a couple of thousand years refining a culture and cuisine, it's a hard call to leave. Unless, you know, NAFTA isn't working out for you, then it's all "Hey, let's get the hell out of here!"

        Since Japanese culture was largely imported from Korea less than 2000 years ago, they wouldn't have to worry so much about that.
