@snailboat, thanks! According to that book it sounds like [hw] is very widespread.

Thanks! So I guess the answer is: no, the topic is not obligatory, even in polite speech.

Thank you, I get it. As for the casual speech, do you guys mean the「おはよう」there?

comment Siri's pronunciation of ふ
Thanks, @snailboat! The article mentions: «Saito Yoshio (2003, cited in Watanabe 2009) states that [ɸ] always appears when followed by a voiceless vowel [ɯ̥] mentioning examples such as as [ɸɯ̥kɯ] (/huku/ “clothes”), and is therefore significant when examining the pronunciation of /hu/.» I should try making Siri say "ふく".
