James Bond vs. Yellowface: revisited

I noted in the last post that Dr. No (1962) is using white actors in Chinese makeup, but by 1967 in You Only Live Twice they are using actual  Japanese actors from Toho studios (which was a smart move IMO).  Then they go and screw the whole thing up by doing the Japanese makeup on Bond.  I forget if that was part of the book or not, but still pretty unforgivable.
