If it's Saturday, this must be Scotland

Zenko Kajiyama thought that he was on the bus to Edinburgh airport.

He wasn't:

... instead, he found himself touring the city's pubs and clubs on a luxury double- decker party bus.
The bus had been booked for a mobile birthday party:
"They lifted my bags onto the bus, sat me down and I was very pleased with myself. But then the bus stopped and everyone went into a bar. "I thought that was strange, but I was enjoying myself too much. They all asked me to join in their party.
Mr Kajiyama didn't realise that he was on the wrong bus because he had "much difficulty understanding how people speak in Edinburgh". Just as well he wasn't in Glasgow, Dundee another city or he'd never get back to Tokyo.
