    I just came back from a two week holiday and have been searching all over for Big Boy but sadly enough we didnīt find any place called that. In which town did you visit that chain? Did the name maybe stand in Kanji?? Just want to know for our next visit.

    Some great pages and pictures. I think you have slightly misunderstood the meaning of 'tourist trap' though. In Japanese it means something like 'kankoukyaku ni takai ryoukin wo fukkakeru mise' or 'kankoukyaku wo kuimono ni suru tokoro'.
