Star Wars and Japan: Part 2

In Japan, you can find Darth Vader or really anything Star Wars on almost any product.  Darth Vader on sides of buildings trying to sell cell phones or R2D2 trying to flog Coca-Cola six-packs. On my most recent trip to Japan I was delighted to find a Darth Vader handkerchief to add to my collection (not my Star Wars collection, but my handkerchief collection, which is probably more nerdy I know.....).  Notice the Japanese style pattern to it, but still with a nice Star Wars dark-side touch. 


Just a quick side point: did you know Mark Hamill actually grew up in Japan, going to school there for a few years as his father was in the US Navy and traveled around a lot?
