 2/: Juku. 

In PHOBIA POWER! you read: 

“In Junior high school I was able to enter the honors class - simply by self-study, and without relying at all on tutoring, or going to a Juku [Cram school] [ CULTURAL POINT].” 

CLICK! The POP-UP FOOTNOTE appears....

[CULTURAL POINT. Juku: 学習塾. In Japan, it is considered ‘normal’ for most school children go to extra tutoring classes after (and sometimes before) their regular school. There is considerable pressure on students to get the required academic points needed to go to the school or university of their choice. Many students suffer stress and sometimes feel unbearable pressure]. 

3/: Kansai-ben. 

In PHOBIA POWER!  you read:

“This is a popular saying in our local Kansai dialect, called ‘Osaka ben’[関西弁: Kansai-ben. LANGUAGE POINT]” 

CLICK! The POP-UP FOOTNOTE appears....  

[関西弁: Kansai-ben is the dialect spoken in the ‘Kansai’ area around Osaka. Kansai-ben is also often called Osaka-ben. In Japan, there is competitive rivalry between different regions, particularly between major cities; such as between Tokyo and Osaka. So each area’s local dialect is a point of many jokes by residents of neighbouring or competitive areas. Australians might think about ‘Sydney versus Melbourne’ jokes. Los Angeles versus New York for Americans.]
