Why we typical avoid being negative 

Elevator culture 

High prices on used goods 

Banking

Long work hours 

Annoying business hours”

“Japan 2.0 Hack” – Tabelog and Gurunavi 

Petty crime 

Repressed anger 

“monoculture”

Osaka vs. Tokyo Podcast

The age old question is pondered: Osaka or Tokyo? We are still on our mini-episodes, but get ready for our return to our more conceptual shows this summer.
Notes:

rivalry between the two big cultural hubs of Japan

Underdog spirit in Kansai/Osaka

Are rockabillies dead?

New York/L.A. analogy

Listen to our previous Nishinari episode if you want to hear about the rougher side of Osaka

Risk takers in Tokyo

Why don’t a lot of Western franchises come to Osaka!?

-Right after we recorded this, Shake Shack announced they are opening in Osaka 🙂

“Disrupting Japan” podcast
Japan is slow to adopt Western ideas/businesses, good or bad?

Tokyo, the land sub-cultures, collaborations, and niche shops
-Kapital clothing in Ebisu
-“The Parking Ginza”

Tokyo – the land of opportunity
Does English make a difference?
What Osaka has that Tokyo doesn’t
