    Episode 47– Tim Bunting, The Kiwi Yamabushi

    Episode 47– Tim Bunting, The Kiwi Yamabushi

    To quote J.R.R. Tolkien, “He loved mountains, or he had loved the thought of them marching on the edge of stories brought from far away…” Meet Tim, a Yamabushi; a Shinto ascetic mountain monk who aims to share the values of what the mountains of Yamagata Prefecture offers. I want to help him open up an ancient custom that he has dedicated his life to. Here is his story and I hope it can be a worthwhile pause from our daily hustle to reflect on.

    Episode 46– Divafresh Yuri, Japanese Songwriter/Artist/Singer

    Yuri caught my attention not only by her flawless control in her singing but also her tasteful approach in crafting songs through respecting musicianship. Although our paths crossed in an unexpected way, the power of strong music appreciation will overcome any genre, label and culture. You can listen, follow or contact Yuri here:

    Episode 45– Allie Sakakibara, Professional Weirdo, Digital Content Creator

    Episode 45– Allie Sakakibara, Professional Weirdo, Digital Content Creator

    What do you get when you genetically mutate a wedding MC, Bill Nye, Bear Gryllis and a model together? You’ll soon learn that the person’s name is Allie. From Google Japan, Discovery Channel Japan and her own YouTube Channel, Allie has carved out her own piece of the Social Media Pie. However, I didn’t bring her on this podcast to solely focus on her success in Japan. I brought her on the podcast to know what it means to maintain integrity in the digital content realm and help me find my favorite brand of microwaveable popcorn.


    You can find Allie on various platforms here: www.alliesakakibara.com

    You can watch the Wild Allie & Dbox episodes here at Discovery Channel Japan: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLgMKK0HeoFAVw2LK6l4c6B67SEbmbPTkJ

    Episode 44– Akil, Ki, Walter: A catch-up with an OG Tokyo Trifecta

    Episode 44– Akil, Ki, Walter: A catch-up with an OG Tokyo Trifecta

    On this episode, I thought it’d be a nice switch up to reconnect and reunite three former guests of my podcast. Ki (ep. 5 & 6), Akil (ep. 12) and Walter (ep.20) graced the mics and indulged me on what was going on in their lives during this pandemic. Albeit, it was my excuse to have them on again because I enjoy their company. We discuss what have we been doing as well as our thoughts of how Japan has held up during these times. But more importantly, we like sharing good memories and smile.

    You can find more about them and their passions here:

    Akil— check out “Japan according to Akil” on wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts as well as his YouTube here: https://youtube.com/channel/UCD2bB4Mf2CyZnjFF2xt0Veg

    Episode 43– Yumi Takano, Academic Nomad & University for Peace Alumni

    Episode 43– Yumi Takano, Academic Nomad & University for Peace Alumni

    International travel and Digital Nomads are commonplace these days but I rarely hear the experiences of Academic Nomads. I believe the future of Japanese society will see a rise in youth expanding their education throughout different parts of the world; making a difference for the better. Fortunately I found Yumi to share her adventures. For the jaded and fatalistic, who are concerned about the young adults of Japan, Yumi is a prime example to give them hope.

    You can contact and chat with Yumi on IG: @yumi_the_greenie and Clubhouse: @yumitkn

    Episode 42– Eto, Reggaeton Rapper, Singer & Producer

    Episode 42– Eto, Reggaeton Rapper, Singer & Producer

    I am back with another musical guest that hails from the island of Puerto Rico yet is making a big splash here in Japan within the past year. Eto has been involved in many musical ensembles in Japan for the past decade. However, the pandemic has constricted him to start a solo project that showcases his cultural heritage of Reggaeton; a Latin Urban music genre that actually is beloved here in the Japanese underground scene. Since July 2020, he has surprised the local music scene with the release his debut ep, “Island Hopping’, two music videos and several singles. His unabashed, sincere energy is clearly shining through his songs and I’m sure will rejuvenate the identity of Reggaeton for the unaware and the curious.

    You can find Eto here: https://linktr.ee/boricuaenjapon Music Videos:

Sent your way by Japan 2.0. Really nice to find another show that hits upon the less talked about. Can’t wait to explore your back catalogue.
