As someone who was born and raised in Japan, it makes me happy when I see or hear things that remind me of Japan when I travel abroad.
Once upon a time, I was thanked by a stranger in Cambodia for the Japanese government's help in building a road, and in Jordan, I was asked to shake hands with the Japanese government for donating a lot of agricultural machinery. I was happy to see such a thing even though I didn't do it. However, I didn't feel happy to see Japanese cars because there were too many Japanese cars on the road.
What I saw here in Jakarta made me a little happy. There was a man sitting on top of a large waste container at the side of a construction site. And he was wearing the uniform of the Japanese national football team.
The front of the uniform has a red line in the center, so it looks like a 2012/2013 model. I didn't know why this man was wearing the Japanese national team's uniform. But the fact that he's wearing the Japanese national team's uniform instead of his country's must mean Japan's national team become a brand of sorts here.
That makes me a little happy as a football fan. At least, I was much happier than I was to see a Toyota.
