But they also have things like the Shamouti Island festival, and I don't know about you, but that island looked like it was full of Inuit symbols to me, the way all the art looked. And Shamouti is what, 100 miles off the Kanto coast? It'd still be "Japan", but it's decidedly un-Japanese. It doesn't even look Ainu, as rare is it is for Japanese media to include Ainu trappings in their stuff. And Snake Bandage, that was the confirmed version. The myth was that 4Kids or someone on the English end *told* them to do it because they thought a character who looked like Brock wouldn't be popular.
