Wacky myths about Japan

My sister's work supervisor told her a good one on Friday.

The Japanese are so polite, they NEVER get drunk.

It's true because a friend of his went to Japan on holidays once.  It comes second only to the person who, before we went to Japan for the first time told us this one:

They eat babies in Japan.  It's rife!

Again, true because she saw it on a documentary.

Have you ever been told anything wacky about Japan or Japanese customs?
