I have visited and travelled throughout Japan over the last 6 years and when i discovered this podcast i wondered what information it could enlighten me with. I have not been disappointed!
Each week i have listened to a tale, folklore or history about some of the places i have visited , and others i shall visit in the future ( fingers crossed). The podcasts always starts with lively banter between 2 friends who apparently live 3 hours apart by shinkansen. What a commitment. Lively and at times funny as they are happy to acknowledge they don't have a clue sometimes, but willing to go and discover more for our benefit at a later date. I really enjoyed the live episode in Ueno park when they had the opportunity to get together. MORE PLEASE. The poems are particularly lovely and spoken in wonderful Japanese. I look forward to sitting down each sunday to listen to another episode.
Good luck with future episodes.
