Recap of Konnichiwa Podcast December, 2020.

December brought a wide range of topics to the Konnichiwa Podcast. Kicking it all off was Yurie with an introduction to some unusual daikou services. Daikou services basically act as a proxy for you when you want something done but are either unable or unwilling to do it yourself - like apologizing ^^. In “A Long Tamago” we welcomed TV personality and fellow podcaster Bobby Judo on the show! It was a lot of fun getting to hear some of his experiences as a foreign talento working in Japan. We even got to try our hand at some puns in Japanese - some with more success than others.

Next, in Moving on Up! My gave us some of the backstory on a couple of local Fukuoka restaurants that made it big - Ippudo and Ichiran. With locations all over the country, they are bringing Hakata’s take on ramen to the rest of the nation as well as overseas!


And finally, to close out the year, Dan introduced a talented mask maker in “Face Off”. A Tokyo shop will begin selling photo realistic masks at the beginning of 2021. The Konnichiwa Podcast talked a bit about the pros and cons becoming masters of disguise.

Looking forward to a fun-filled 2021 - Happy New Year, everyone!
