The Japanese leader allows you to build multiple technologies in one action, all at a 2 gold discount. If you also have one of the buildings that you can activate for discount on a tech, I have 2 questions.

1) Does "tapping" that building allow you buy a technology at a combined discount of 2+whatever the bldg gives?

2) When you use the bldg activation action, can you also buy multiple tech on that same turn? If so, depending on the answer to question 1, would you get the first tech at a combined discount, and all further at just the -2? Basically, we were unsure if the part of the Japanese power to buy multiple techs applied if you were using a building activation rather than the standard builder action.

This came up in a play tonight and we had some debate about how it was to be handled. Would be curious to know if anyone else thought there was any ambiguity here.
