Japan 2.0: A Fated Meeting

I was walking to Mmm Que Rico (one of my favorite cafes in Nakatsu, Osaka), when I received a message from Jordyn and Mike, a couple of fans of the Japan 2.0 podcast. They said that they were visiting Osaka and asked me for directions to the cafe. When we realized that we were both headed to the same place at the same time, it seemed like fate was trying to bring the three of us together. It was an amazing coincidence and also my first opportunity to meet fans of the podcast. After a short while they arrived and they made a great first impression. We talked over lunch and they told me about the experiences that they have had since arriving in Japan. It was clear that they were a fascinating couple and I knew that their unique perspectives would be perfect for the podcast. Lucky for us, they were gracious enough to agree to do an interview!

In this episode of the Japan 2.0 podcast, Jordyn and Mike share highlights from their month long excursion in Japan. We discuss Tokyo, transportation, safety, tattoos, English speakers, and much more!

I’m always glad to meet people who are as enthusiastic about Japanese culture as I am, and these two were no exception. It was a pleasure to interview them, and I’m happy to induct Jordyn and Mike as honorary members of the Japan 2.0 crew. They are always welcome back to the podcast and I hope to visit with them again when they return to Japan.

You can follow both Jordyn and Mike on Instagram where they have been posting incredible picture of their Japanese adventures. Find Jordyn and Mike on Instagram at:
