The Kentucky Fried Chicken fast-food chain started their operation in Japan in 1970. So this year is Kentucky Fried Chicken, Japan‘s 40th anniversary.
They are offering some specials to commemorate the occasion.
When I was growing up in America, I didn’t really like Kentucky Fried Chicken.
It had an image of being greasy, inferior fast-food.
But Kentucky Fried Chicken (or simply “Kentucky“, as it’s often referred to in Japan) is popular in Japan.
For good reason…their food and service is much better in Japan than it is in America.
At Christmas-time in Japan, it is popular to eat Kentucky Fried Chicken.

In Japan, Kentucky Fried Chicken has, among other things, delivery service,
a breakfast menu,
and 「レッドホットチキン」 (“Red Hot Chicken“).
