Of the 3000 castles that once dotted the Japanese landscape only 12 remain in their original condition. From old ruins to modern replicas, on this show we talk to Daniel O`Grady from Japanese Castle Explorer about the historic and modern significance of Japanese castles.
I also post a mini review of the new Sony Playstation Vita. This new gaming machine from Sony has been eagerly anticipated by fans and is an important product for the profit challenged company. Does the Sony Playstation Vita live up to the hype and would I recommend it as a portable gaming device?
Also this is the last show for 2011 and I wanted to thank everyone who listens and supports the show and a special thank you to all my guests who have been on. Without your support Tokyo Podcast would just be me talking to myself and so I thank everyone for making it a huge success.
