Really enjoyed this story. Not the usual subject you cover but it was fascinating to learn about the corporate culture of Japan.

Katie Scott she is pronouncing it correctly, the Japanese way. if it were supposed to be Neesan, they would have spelled it that way. but they didn't, because the name Nissan comes from Nihon, an alternative name for Japan. Americans trying to tell someone named Motoko how to pronounce Japanese... smh.
