Like a Magic

If you are after a podcast discussing the tranquility of the matcha tea ceremony, latest crazy mocha flavours, Shibuya scramble crossing etiquette, bidet technique or ASIMOs latest adventures then this may not be the podcast for you.

If you want to hear an intercontinental podcast between a hipster from London (Pete Donaldson) who suffers from Japanophilia and a young British Expat Ex-JET programme turned number one foreign Japan film maker currently living in Japan (Chris Broad) then you may be about to finally tune into an Japanese auditory experience to rival the visual assault of the Robot Restaurant.

Some listeners sympathise (most laugh in hysterics) at Chris’s endless quest to see the glorious Mt Fuji, the majestic Japanese scenic icon that he has only to date seen in books and on a screen, despite living in Japan for over 8 years.

Enjoy a perspective on Japan like no other.

Japanophiles will love it

Great podcast, now even better that it’s twice a week.

A_Ueki ,

The reigning supreme podcast about Japan!

After searching high and low for Japan-related podcasts, Abroad in Japan is by far my favourite.

Really interesting topics, anecdotes, opinions, cultural insights + great hosts w/ great voices (not too high pitched > complement each other).

I eagerly wait for new episodes each week; they make whatever I’m doing a whole lot better!

Thank you :)
