If he was to use those IPA characters, how would
he type them?
Also, how would Tanaka-san write his full name in
Japanese? He has an English first name and Japanese
middle and last names. I hear the Japanese have no
middle names, so my guess is he is an immigrant and
adopted an English first name to fit in, his Japanese
given name moving to the middle position as a consequence.
