Oh, dear. So even the Japanese younger generation is awash in western culture. I never thought of the awashi as being small - just sumo wrestlers being big... And to think that in the early 60's I used to wear swimming trunks (bought in Carnaby street) that resembled the bottom half of a small bikini. Anyway, lycra cycling/sprinting shorts are totally shape-revealing....

This shows my lack of culture and class I suppose, but I've never liked looking at those big bums. If I look in the mirror in my bathroom there is one that looks as bad... :oops:

It was compulsory (and indeed compulsive) viewing in the late '80s on Channel 4. Commentary was by everyone's favourite Mr Shouty, Brian Blessed. :D
