Our special guest this week is Steve Burson, president of H&R Group, who explains all about the new residence registration cards which foreigners in Japan will have to apply for after July 9.
On news issues, we hear from NPR radio host and journalist John Matthews and Japan Today editor Chris Betros on Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda’s cabinet reshuffle, Aum fugitives, and an Atomic Energy Agency ad comparing radiation to an angry wife. Tokyo Comedy Store’s Bob Werley talks about Hooters, “diet glasses” and a few other oddities in the news, while adventurer John Adams recommends some festivals to visit in Tokyo this week, as well as the best places to see hydrangeas.
And of course, Don Morton tells us what movies to see and what movies to miss
