Episode 71.- The Princess Got Engaged!

Brent opened this week’s conversation by asking Motoi and Edgar about their thought’s on the recent arrival of Carl’s Jr. to Japan, specially because their presentation is very different to the image this fast food chain has in Japan. Next, we talk about our main topic, the engagement of Princess Mako and the debate about the role of women on the Japanese Imperial Family. Finally, the gang discussed about some weird posters with a nationalistic message that appeared in Kyoto.

Episode 70.- Tokyo-Tokyo

Greetings from the Living Japan Crew!

Apologies for being late to upload this new episode. This week, Motoi, Brent and Edgar discuss about what they did during the Golden Week, the different celebrations for Children’s Day that exist in Mexico and Japan, as well as explain a little bit of the folklore behind this celebration.  Next, Edgar talks about his experience attending the Tokyo Rainbow Pride festival, to celebrate the LGBT community and create awareness of sexual diversity and inclusiveness. Finally, we talk about our main topic which is Tourism. Recently, Japan has made a great effort to bring more visitors from abroad, but the Living Japan crew questions if their marketing approach has been the best. Join the discussion, have you visited Japan? Have you seen any of the tourism campaigns of Japan? How does your country attracts international tourism? Let us know in the comments!
