Yep,  I  feel  the  same!!  And "Tokyo" works best for me too. Another
problem  for  russian-speakers  is  that  еnglish  "T"  is more voiced
(tensed, stressed - hope one of them is the correct word) than russian
"T".  I had real problem with english "two" for the long time, even on
the air, and even now, maybe :)

"Tea to two" :)
