We are trying to start 2017 with the right foot and working hard to have a new episode for you every two weeks. Since Motoi had to travel abroad for work, we decided to record a new Nerd Talk episodes, because without her, Edgar and Brent are not cool, just a couple of Nerds! Haha! Our favorite nerds talk about the announcement by the Olympic committee of the new Ambassadors for the Tokyo 2020 Games. Brent and Edgar give their thoughts about them.
Join the discussion, let us know what you think. Do you think these characters represent the spirit of Japan and the Olympic Games? Who would you have chosen?
The Living Japan crew is back this week! Join us while we discuss about the arrival of Pokemon Go to Japan and how people has been reacting to it. We also talk about the moving of the Tsukiji Fish Market, is it happening? Finally, we also talk a little about the next Tokyo election.
On the latest Episode of Living Japan, we congratulate the team Twin Cosplay, who represented Mexico at the World Cosplay Summit 2015 and got the first prize for their Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask performance. Later, Motoi, Brent and Edgar talk about some of the problems that the organizing committee for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics are facing, specially the copyright issue surrounding the event’s logo; the cancellation of the construction of a new stadium and the possibility of the appearance of an idol group on the inauguration ceremony. Join the discussion, do you think Tokyo is ready for this even? Do you think that having an idol group performance an the inauguration will portray a good or bad image of Japan? Let us know in your comments!
We are joined by friend of the show Graeme to get a little insight into what it means to be gay in Japan. This is a large issue and we can only explore so much in one show. If you have any questions or comments please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will include them in future shows.
