In Japanese, all the vowels are pronounced thusly:
A as in aww (rhymes with law)
Sean, from my vantage point (living in Japan for a year now, surrounded by native speakers) this isn't quite right. The 'A' vowel sound is pronounced 'ah', not 'aww' and it doesn't rhyme with 'law'. It's more like the 'a' in 'arch' unless my ear is deceiving me.
