Other mistake: On the flight to Okinawa, Daniel is reading a map, looking for "Tomi Village". Mr Miyagi tells him to find Naha and go south. Daniel replies, "I keep hitting Kadena Airbase". Kadena Air Base is NORTH of Naha.

Suggested correction: And then Daniel calls himself stupid for holding the map upside down. Not wrong at all.

Obviously Daniel would have had to have failed geography to hold the map upside down. All of Asia would have been east of Okinawa, and Japan itself would have been south of Okinawa. Also, if he didn't realise that he was reading all of the city names upside down, he may have already suffered irreparable and irreversible brain damage in his last tournament.

Also, the book would have been upside down.

Factual error: There is no Bon-festival in Okinawa. Okinawa has a traditional festival called Eisa festival.

Suggested correction: There is an Obon festival. It's very different from what's shown in the movie, and is Japanese versus Okinawan, but that's not an 'error'.

Continuity mistake: When Chozen hits Daniel in the stomach, on the bridge by the village, one of Chozen's friends kicks the drum under Daniel to the other side of him, but when the girl hurls the vegetable at Chozen, it is back where it originally was. Also, when the girl hurls the vegetable he looks over his shoulder to his left, yet in the closeup he is looking over his right shoulder. (00:55:25)

Trivia: During one fight, Chozen manages to hit Mr. Miyagi across the back with the handle of a spear. This is the only time in the original series of films when someone managed a successful strike on Miyagi during any fight he was in.

Question: Throughout the film, are there a series of deliberate 'Back to the Future' references? I noticed two straight away - Daniel says 'If you put your mind to it anything is possible, you can do anything' which is repeated several times during BTTF. Also, when Daniel and Kumiko are at the dance, the song 'Earth Angel' can be heard. The song at the climax of the dance in BTTF. Are these deliberate, as BTTF was a year before this movie?

Professor Lazarus

Chosen answer: No it is not deliberate. what Daniel says is a common saying, and Earth Angel was a popular song. coincidence at best.

MasterOfAll

Answer: Also, Daniel's "put your mind to it you can accomplish anything" (before painting the fence) was used in the first film from 1984 - a year BEFORE Back to the Future came out.
