This week for my RocketNews24 W.T.F. Japan article, I wrote about the top five ways to get rid of the annoying door-to-door NHK guy.
The NHK guy is the annoyance feared above all others in Japan: he’s the door-to-door “salesman” who tries to get you to sign a contract with NHK, the Japanese public broadcasting service, so that you will pay them money every month.
Even though the NHK guys (and NHK themselves) claim that paying this fee is mandatory for all TV owners, nothing ever happens to those who don’t pay, so it’s usually a fairly awkward encounter to say the least.
This article was inspired by my recent visit by the NHK guy. I used one of the methods on this list with him… which do you think it was?
