Show Notes

There are many quirky things about Japan. On this episode we talk about three such things. You will see people wearing face masks everywhere in Japan. There are a number reasons such as preventing colds, keeping their faces warm, and women sometimes wear them when they cannot be bothered to wear makeup. Even Burke has worn a mask to hide his stubble at work!

Monster crows are everywhere in Japan. They are huge and quite frightening. They are very intelligent, so do not ever attack one because they will remember you! Be very wary around crows.

Many Japanese people believe in ghosts, more so that in the West, and actually, talking about ghosts is a bit of a taboo subject. However, your podcast hosts are more than happy to share their opinions and their creepy experiences in Japan.
