At first, I was going to ask if you took a Nissan plant tour but then realized you'd already been one before. Since fruit came up, did you see any square watermelon (http://www.snopes.com/photos/odd/watermelon.asp
" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;)? I've been to Japan 4x before but never saw any (but didn't know to look for it).
Ok, you didn't see many Leafs but did you see many J1772 or CHAdeMO charging stations?
Just checked with my ActiveE driver (wife) and she said no weirdly shaped fruit. I went to a couple of Farmer's Markets (in an unrelated matter) and saw nothing unusual, except myself. Now weirdly shaped Baseball food, I've got for you. Prize in Cracker Jacks? Hell boy, this here's got an Octopus Tentacle piece in each and every Fish Ball!
I took the factory tour again. Because I'm boring. The tour is not. The people are extremely friendly and my son is enjoying his tiny Nissan Leaf model he received as a gift (gave mine away, sorry). The factory is so festooned with Leaf stuff (and Ghosn's photo) it reminded me of a ChiComm plant I visited in the bad, bad old days, just much nicer and with Ghosn playing the role of Mao.
CHAdeMO? Just the one at the Oppama plant visitor's center. There's another one in Oppama but I don't have enough suck to get into the Special VSP Grand Drive area (i.e. I can't convince someone that my internet presence is more than 6 page views per annum) to check it out. Supposedly there are a bunch of them at the ENEOS chain of gas stations, but the several I checked didn't have one.
