Google Doodle does not mirror region settings for language

This is a small (but obvious) issue with Google doodles.

I live in Japan, but my Japanese isn't amazing so I prefer to use Google in my native language, English.  Whenever I visit www.google.com it redirects to www.google.co.jp.  That's fine and normal, so when I want to search in English I usually type in www.google.com/ncr for no country restriction.  That changes everything to English EXCEPT the Google doodle mouse-over text and the related search once you click on it.  (See image for visual explanation).

There was a post about this back in September two years ago... can we get a fix?
Thank you,

Paul
