I Think I’m Turning JapaNEWS 3.31.14 Edition

Hiho there folks!  Sorry for the recent lack of updates.  I was in Tokyo for most of last week for work stuff and then, when I got back, I was sicker than a slug.  Couple that with the insanely beautiful weather right now and it’s really any wonder that I’m writing something at all!

Anyways, since I am doing my best to keep the JapaNEWS as a weekly-ish show, I pumped out a March 31st edition of the thing, no matter how unprepared or sick I was.

 

On this week’s/ last week’s show, I discuss:

A dude is released from Japanese Death Row after 40 years.

A Fukushima cleanup worker dies but not from what you think.

The Japanese tax hike and its fallout.

And finally, the big Tokyo Youtube Hanami thing happening on the 5th.  Also promoted here

 

As always, if you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to leave them either here or on the youtube channel OR on twitter (@STEPHEN_TETSU).

 

And with that, expect this week’s installment to drop in a few days.

PS Sorry for the total lack of updates.  I have been really busy with work and sicker than fish.  I promise to be better going forward and if I’m not, you can shoot me.
