Since Barack's coming round to Yukio's this November, may Our Man offer some free advice to keep everyone happy:
10. Yukio: Don't ask if his travel insurance includes health care.
9. Barack: Don't offer to say a few words on behalf of Tokyo 2016.
8. Yukio: Do blame the translators if anyone mentions the America is the great Satan speech.
7. Barack: When Yukio takes you to a swanky sushi restaurant, don't remark that Flipper was your favourite TV show.
6. Yukio: Two words: Peach Cobblers.
5. Barack: When Yukio does his Eddie Murphy impression, just smile politely.
4. Yukio: Why not try your Different Strokes "Watchya talkin 'bout Willis?" impression. That one won't fall flat.
3. Michelle: Don't tell Miyuki, "Your dress is out of this world!"
2. Miyuki: Don't tell Michelle, "We're having a whale of a time!"
1. And all of you, for christsakes - Don't mention the war (Pacific or Afghan)!
