    This week, we're starting off a month of Sengoku-themed content with a look at one of the remoter areas of Japan: Tosa province on Shikoku, now known as Kouchi Prefecture. Specifically, we'll be diving into the history of the one-time lords of the area, the Chosokabe family, who rose from minor status to lords of all of Shikoku in two generations, and were then annihilated in the very next.

    Episode 376 - The Nectar of the Gods

    Episode 376 - The Nectar of the Gods

    This week, we're exploring the history of Japan's most famous drink: sake, or Japanese rice wine (though it turns out, 'sake' in Japanese doesn't necessarily refer to what we think of, nor is it actually a 'rice wine' in the technical sense). We're covering everything from tax laws to how to make your own sake using nothing but your own spit, so buckle up! It's gonna be a fun one.

Perfect Podcast to Spark Your Interest

This is a great series that perfectly condensed important topics in all aspects of Japanese history. It really is a great gateway to start researching further on certain subjects. It even cover topics that average Japanese tend to ignore, or fails to teach in school!
Thank you very much!
