Best podcast on Japan!

Very entertaining podcast on Japan! A pleasure to listen to Chris and Pete every week.

Great podcast

I started learning Japanese a few weeks ago to learn a new skill during lockdown in the UK, hoping to visit Japan in the future! Great podcasts giving insight into living, working and visiting Japan.

Disappointing

I enjoyed it at first, then gradually realised that Chris doesn’t really understand the Japanese people or culture. He often misinterprets Japanese words, customs, etc. It’s a real shame, as he is fortunate enough to live in Japan, yet he hasn’t truly understood the people, language, or culture.
