AuViv ,

Great conversations!

Really enjoy the personalities & different viewpoints of the three hosts. Great conversations about interesting topics.
Helps me understand Japan a little more when hearing the discussions of people who actually live there. Thanks for all the work you put into your podcast.

Good Stuff!

I'm a bit of a podcast addict, it helps time go by faster at work. I prefer any that I can actually learn something from, whether it's lectures on tech or podcasts like this one. Japan is definitely my top favorite subject matter, so when I found this one a couple months ago, I was super excited. Love listening to these, and the fact that they're usually pretty lengthy in time. Great content and further insight into life in Japan! I'm now a dedicated listener of the Just Japan podcast :)

Everything about Japan

Kevin O'Shea is my go-to content creator for information about Japan. He has a long list of contacts that he brings in for interviews on everything (about Japan) under the sun.
