One serious problem here is simply the pronunciation and sometimes of course the confusion that goes with it: Swedish 'nypon' - English 'Nippon' as English doesn't have a long voiced 'y' as Swedish there's a major obstacle here.

'Nippon of course meaning the native name of Japan= great land of the rising sun.


At a business lunch in Sweden, or anywhere else in the world for that matter, trying to impose or introduce the outstanding dessert consisting of lukewarm rosehip soup with vanilla ice cream and grated hazel-nuts might create more than an obstacle.
