Customer Reviews

Good information

This is a good supplement to the Japan Today website. Kong is great with entertainment and I enjoy the other speciality shows like Tech and Real Estate.

Refreshing take on Japanese current events

For podcasts out of Japan, especially news, this weekly roundup is well produced, relatively fast paced with an occasional bit of insight (and sometimes snark). The inclusion of Japan Today readers' comments on the stories makes it not all one-sided commentary. Definitely worth checking out for your train commute.

英語のリスニングが楽しくなります。

まさに生の英語トークが詰まってます。英語の教材などでは、ゆっくり丁寧なスピードで話しているので、聞き取りやすくて当たり前なのですが、実際にネイティブと話をすると、???と何を言っているのか分からない時があります。そういった意味ではこのpodcastが自然と聞き取れるようになると、結構ヒアリング強くなるかなと思います。
トークの内容も日本の話題満載で、外国の方がどう思っているかなど、率直な意見も聞けて、文化的な違いも分かるしで、非常に勉強になります。
オススメですよ~!
