Special Guest: Jonathan Gartrelle of Niji Iro Ninja (Rainbow Ninja), a group organizing flash mobs and fighting for the right to dance in Japan.

It’s that time of the year, friends; when Tokyo is so bearable that even the two grumpiest guys in Japan are actually something resembling content!  But we’ve still got serious issues on the table today; Justice Minister Tanaka is out, Japan’s gender equality and ease of doing business is down, Softbank’s buying Sprint in a bold maneuver, and there’s still a war to fight for the right to dance!  Listen out later in the show for a very last-minute interview (we weren’t sure if it would make it into this episode) with the head honcho of Niji Iro Ninja, Jonathan Gartrelle.

Breaking: After this episode was recorded, our dear friend Shintaro Ishihara announced he would resign his post as Governor of Tokyo!  Break out the confetti!  (Unfortunately, he’s also trying to put together a political party.)

  1. Just thought I’d let you know, your japanshowpodcast.co.cc feed seems to be down. Great show, and I look forward to future episodes. 🙂

    • Hey there, we’re indeed having trouble, it seems co.cc decided to close its doors. We’re working on the site now, so stay tuned! (and thank you)
