Concerned foreigner responds

Date Posted: 2001-06-16

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I wish to address your replies to my article regarding the restaurant that refused my entrance based solely on the fact that I'm a foreigner.

First, my original letter contained the word "incidentally," not "accidentally." Someone editing my letter mistakenly inserted the word “accidentally”.

Second, to "Been there, Done that," and "Got the Tee-shirt," I can appreciate all opinions and I thank-you for your "get tough" advice.

Third, I don't think I'll be the next Rose Parks, (yes, I do know about her), and I won't drag the restaurant through the Japanese legal system. I only hope that through education and awareness (i.e. the forum of Japan Update) we can reduce the prejudice attitudes, even if it's only in our small corner of the world.

Thanks for your time,
Still a concerned foreigner
