1. I’m obviously late on this one, but here’s my attempt to convey how insane this past year was for me and the people and places I’ve come to love here in Japan.

    遅れたけどこのビデオで2013の中に私の感じとかやばい経験とか大好きな人と所を伝えてみてたね。みんな明けましておめでとうございます!ことよろ!

    さようなら、2013!

  3. Sometimes a summer is just so epic, it’s almost impossible to capture it or put it into words. This summer in Japan was like that for me. Here’s my attempt to convey what it was like. In the end, you just had to be there.

    Filmed mostly in Nagoya, Hakuba, Tokyo, and Ishinomaki. Watch it in HD in 1080p (sorry youtube isn’t the best, by the way).


    Thanks, friends, for the best summer of my entire life.

  9. Japanese dude figures out how to play the cabbage like a flute. Is this the definition of boredom?


    His Youtube description explains it pretty simply:

    I made musical instruments from the cabbage. 
    A very high sound is heard.

  15. Thought we could all use a little Mexinese in our lives today. Happy Friday! 

    Japanese snack company Koikeya has long produced the best-selling spicy snack Karamucho, whose name is a mix of the Japanese word “kalai” (spicy) and the Spanish word “mucho” (very). Given the Mexican origin, and similar phonetic sounds in both Spanish and Japanese, Karamucho has created a great commercial shot in Mexico with a mariachi band. Listen closely, and you’ll realize that they’re all singing in Japanese, not Spanish.
