Germany and Japan in WWII were BFF's, with Japan continuing to fight to the bitter, nuke-filled, end.
Now, let's say a German citizen wanted to check out Japan, for whatever reason:
Firstly, could they do so at a time when both countries were otherwise suspicious of foreigners? If so, how would they get there, and would they have been restricted to some formal travel program? And if not, what about the two nations relationship would prevent this trip from happening and why?
Secondly, if Germans did manage to get to Japan in a legal way, what would the locals be like? What would they have thought of this gaijin having come to their country? Would their open or (more likely) quiet natural distrust of foreigners be overcome by the fact that their two peoples were brothesr in arms against their nations common enemies?
I've been studying Japan recently, so I'm vary curious as to if/how something like this would play out.
