    Lol I always get a kick out of the Japanese equivalents of English words. Specifically for "McDonalds" it sounds like such a funny bastardization - "Makudonarudo"

    Does anyone know what does the word "Kawasaki" look like in Japanese characters?
    It might make a nice emblem for decals etc.

    [EDIT] Google translate to the rescue...

    Yes Davy....'Kawasaki' is a name......eg Mr Kawasaki...Mr Honda...Mr Yoshimura..,etc..
    川崎 [かわさき]


    Shozo Kawasaki is the founder of the brand and after his family name was named Kawasaki. Keeping the classic tradition of the Japanese names, “kawa” means river and “saki” means cape. As it is with Yamaha, the nature presents in Kawasaki as well. This gives us a good lesson about the naming in Japan.

    One of my biggest regrets when my Wife and I went to Japan and did a little 10 day tour with my Son and Daughter in law was to miss going to the Kawasaki Museum in Kobe (which is one of the places we were..)

    Thanks for the history and background of the names... too cool! Learned something new today I can go home now

    As always, you have nice pictures to share.

    The last picture the guy behind the counter seems to be checking out the blonde lady. I'm sure blonde's get a lot of attention there... yes I know, just ask your wife, right

    Thanks again Brian!
