Nice glimpse of the life
This podcast features a good variety of scenes from all over Japan. It has that kind of TV documentary feel! You just watch Japan kinda roll by you, plus you see many spots or things you've never known about before! So I reccomend this podcast if you've got some extra space for it, it's worth it! Bad news though, I don't think it's going to be updated anymore...
It makes Japan interesting. Not that it isn't interesting already. This makes you wanna visit it.
Like I'm there.
I love to play this on my ipod as I dirft to sleep, its like you're actually there. Its quite relaxing and the footage is breath-taking.
