Planet Japan Podcast: Ep 180 – Tadpoles From Heaven
CLICK HERE TO LISTEN NOW!
The iPad has finally arrived in Japan, and Doug takes it for a test drive.
Our Dick of the Week is a doctor who was less than supportive of his girlfriend when he found out she was pregnant.
The debate over American bases on Okinawa has claimed Prime Minister Hatoyama as a victim, who resigned over his lack of leadership in the matter and the confusion he caused.
This week’s Nihongo a Go Go includes the idiom “me ga takai” – which literally means “high eyes” and is used to talk about someone with expensive tastes. Our onomatopoeia is “peko peko,” which means “hungry” or also can refer to a head-bobbing motion.
And finally, we examine the mysterious case of tadpoles falling from the sky in Japan. I’m guessing it’s because of global warming, but I could be wrong.
That’s it for this week. Thanks for listening!
