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.
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.
