Episode 74.- Kabuki at the Olympics

Hello everyone!!!

We have a new episode for you! Finally, after almost 6 months (more or less) we get back to our original format, commenting on three different news that caught our eyes. First, we talk a little bit about the Onsen Theme Park in the city of Beppu, which this month show a little bit of what it will be built to the people who backed up this idea through crowd funding. Our second topic is socializing parents, specially mothers who are being pressured to be the perfect mom, giving small space for relief or meeting friends. Finally, we discuss the role of Traditional culture in the 2020 Olympics’ inauguration, after the declaration of some members of the organizing committee that emphasize that things like sumo or kabuki should not be part of this event.

Join the discussion. Would you like to go to an Onsen theme Park? How do parents get help in taking care of children so that they can socialize in your country? Should Japanese traditional culture be part of the Olympics’ inauguration? Let us know in the comments!
