I’m not too sure we’ll be lucky enough to get discounts.

I thank you a lot for those very precious informations directly from Japan.

I made a very short translation in french of your article, with a direct link to your original post.

In case you don’t like or you don’t want this translation, I can delete my post.

Best regards.
