I think I've probably mentioned before the funny story a colleague told
me about his stay in Japan ten or twelve years ago.  It was when Takeshita
was often in the news.  The tv station that offered news in English once
a day, done by Japanese newspeople, got on a kick of trying to anglicize
Japanese names.  They did it with Takeshita's name for about two days
before suddenly switching back to the Japanese pronunciation.
