Episode 7 - Cell phones and Orientation

Sorry it has taken us so long to get this latest episode to you. Hopefully the it will be useful to you as we cover all your cell phone questions and we have an argument in Japanese (Colin H was right - it is shomesho!).
We also blow the lid off orientation and Chris has a confession about his first few days in Japan.
Until next week.......

Episode 6 :Girls only beyond this point

That right, the podcast this week has been taken over by women. Perhaps only relevant to those of the female sex, this week is a 101 to living in Japan for the girls.
In all seriousness we think that there is loads of useful information in here and we hope our listeners enjoy it.
Guys, by all means have a listen however you might to go chop wood or fix a car afterwards, just to cancel things out.

Remember to email us your questions at

Mini Podcast: Colins Homestay story

Hey whats up just dropping off a quick story about my time with my host family. Our prefecture arranges host familys on a volunteer basis and Im lucky enough to have a host family who lives in a 400 year old buddhist temple, how cool is that. Even though I made myself look stupid at the home stay family halloween party, I really love my homestay experience and If you get a chance to do one, you should really give it a try!
