Saw this in late August in Shinjuku Station.
Japan v.s. Korea Nike ad for The Human Race Worldwide 10k Run
Japan is represented by Natto. Korea by Kimchi. I really liked this ad.
It says “Let it be settled by running”

Do you like Nattou and / or Kimuchi?
I like both…especially together over rice! キムチ納豆ご飯！ One of my favorites for lunch.

I wrote it that way because in Japanese it’s spelled 「キムチ」…”ki-mu-chi”.
(Some people spell it “kimchee”) ;)

its good that nike is confirming kimchi as a korean dish, given that fact that japan is trying hard to cheat people that kimchi is a japanese dish.
