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.
It’s been a while since I’ve shared my videos on this page but since I’m feeling sick and much too tired to write up an actual post today, I’m just going to round up some of my non-written content over the past couple of weeks or so, mainly from my youtube channel, on which I usually just eat food and occasionally talk at a camera.
I got a new mic and to test it out I made a couple of videos. These were the result:
Stephen Eats Weird(ish) Japan
In this long series of videos, I pretty much pull stuff from off the shelves of my local convenience store and claim it’s weird and then eat it. Not very exciting but if you’re into junk food, this is probably in your wheelhouse.
For more videos and stuff featuring me in general, just check out (or subscribe to… or both) my Youtube Channel page here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChj5O1kpXH4kxVQqQBFuPVg
Or not. I honestly don’t really care. #BOSS
