I suppose that I look at some of the supposed origins. It may be that the Japanese borrowed the expression but it seems too wierd that they would pronounce Okane so close to Okay and use the same hand sign.

On another topic I think "go-go" comes from Japanese too. As in "go-go girl". In Japanese, "gogo" means "evening" or "PM". Again it just seems to be too much of a coinicidence for them not to be related.
