Citrus fruits are considered too sour by most Japanese — except for mandarin oranges (mikan), which are prized for their sweetness and are very easy to peel. The agriculture ministry says that per-capita consumption of fruit in Japan is about half that of the European Union.

Since 2002 I have been to Thailand 11 times —8 of those times were for strictly recreational purposes which I ’ll be happy to enlighten you on if you are interested.
