"Only in Japan" with Guest Host Yumi!
Play • 50 min

Back by popular demand, Yumi joins Ben and Burke to discuss things you might only see in Japan. The conversation starts off innocent enough covering overpriced fruit and a hideous crime recently committed  against such fruit. But it quickly devolves into a discussion about monster-sized shochu jugs, "kitchen drunks," the appeal of maid cafes and hostess bars, push-up bras, sexy vs. cute Japanese idols, vending machines selling illegal drugs, expectations on women in Japanese society, and much more. Be sure to listen to the end to find out Yumi's very important question to the guys about women's underwear, and please remember to leave a rating for Voices in Japan on Apple Podcasts.
