You’re the reason JAPAN Forward launched The Week – a podcast for busy people who want to keep up to date with Japanese culture, politics, business, economics and research, as well as sports. Hosted by Arielle Busetto.
In our sixteenth episode, we spotlight famed skateboarder Yuzuru Hanyu and his recent retirement from competition.
We also present a six-part series on Judge Radhabinod Pal, a jurist particularly renowned in the Tokyo trials who examined Asia’s experience in World War II from a different perspective.
Further on, we take a look at the lavender fields of Hokkaido, which have just reached their peak season. Find the list of related articles below.
Join us wherever you get your podcasts – on Spotify, Apple Music, Google Podcasts or directly through our website at JAPAN Forward. Contact us and stay in touch on Twitter @ariellebusetto.
New podcasts will be released every weekend and will remain available to listeners on your own schedule.
We have a library of podcasts available on our homepage, including Real Issues, Real Voices, Real Japan ー in English and Japanese, and Sports Talk.
