Go Matildas.

And while I'm here, a polite inquiry to JapanToday. How about reporting some news from the other world cup currently in progress? You know, the global tournament for one of the most watched/played sports in the world? How much news about rugby, soccer, and baseball does this site need?

ahhh, drinkers of Yona Yona (and other Yoho Brewing beers) beware...the Getsumengaho is a very very average tasting beer. If you like Yona Yona and Ao-oni, don't bother with this one - probably not up your alley.

Posted in: Chef Jamie Oliver urges compulsory food lessons worldwide See in context

As much as I applaud Oliver's efforts to educate kids about healthy eating....I am totally against mandatory enforcement of education about food. Everybody has different ideas and diets...and we must not let those in charge decide what is good or bad. Food education is good...yes, but it must not be influenced by government, which in turn is influenced by big Agriculture. Thomas Jefferson summed it up a long time ago:

"If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny."

Never believe anything Monsanto says. Arguably the most evil company on the planet.

Posted in: Tokyo gets a taste of authentic British fish & chips See in context

I tried this new place the other day. Not too bad. Chips were fantastic. Fish could have done with a bit more batter- and was a little bit oily overall. All up a 7/10 score from me. Hope they improve the oiliness. As I work just across the road, I will definitely go there just to get some chips!

Mass produced, commercial mayonnaise is unhealthy with its use of vegetable oils (usually soy or canola), numerous additives, preservatives and sugar. Mayonnaise made at home with whole egg, olive oil, dash of mustard, vinegar and salt is very healthy and aids in the better digestion of raw salads, etc.

Posted in: The Kong Show - Week of Jan 12, 2014 See in context

I suppose the new format is better...but could you please ditch the silly background music and audio samples? It's corny and makes it harder to hear people talking! Just have a discussion for god's sake. I'd put the radio on if I wanted music.

Posted in: Japan Today presents The Kong Show See in context

Ive been listening for a couple of weeks now. Some thoughts on this podcast.


Short duration. 15 minutes is perfect for focusing on the top issues. Many podcasts drag on too long. Good source of information for things happening in Japan. Professionally produced.


Too many "kamasami kong" sound snippets - sounds like the guy is in love with himself. Silly sound excerpts and try-hard sound FX. Unnecessary. Makes me cringe. Unnatural start to podcast with self-introductions. Probably don't need this. The host should just introduce the (regular) guest and let them speak. No need to talk about what they are going to say when the podcast is only 15 minutes long.

Strange. It's more fun to stumble drunk down to Shibuya from Roppongi in the early hours nursing a traveller and acting like an idiot with ya mates!

Hold the meeting while standing - i.e. no sitting down on chairs.

It would be very dangerous if full or even half full, if it landed directly on a young child.

Very decent podcast. I hope it hasn't been cancelled, seeing that it's been a while since any new episodes.

Baird Brewery out of Numazu, Shizuoka has been doing a great job

Yes, the Baird Brewery beers are great. I also like the Yona Yona pale ale as a tasty brew I can drink at home.

Should that caption read "sliced", or am I entering an unfamiliar realm of expensive fruit jargon?

Considering that the letter C on the keyboard is next to V, I dare say that it should read "sliced".....

Posted in: Japanese comedian barred from Olympic run for Cambodia See in context

majority of runners are crappy runners... zero form and just injury waiting to happen. To be able to qualify for any Olympics he has to be DAMN GOOD runner which he is

Well, going by the massive hell-strike he is about to make in the article photo....it appears as though he does not have good running form! That kind of running is an injury waiting to happen!
