I know 8 or 9 years ago, maybe still, it was a thing for non-Christian Japanese couples to have two wedding ceremonies, one a trad. Shinto, another a fake Christian wedding in Western garb and I Do, Forever Hold your peace and so on. For the second, you didnt need a real minister but you did need a real white guy to perform the ceremony.
Also, a Japanese Santa is low rent. Classy stores need a white guy.
