Former sumo star Konishiki on U.S. troops in Okinawa, road safety and weight loss


Join me on the JPOD this week as we discuss the latest news and gossip about what’s happening in Japan. We chat with former sumo star Konishiki who gives us his opinions on the future of U.S. troops in Okinawa, road safety, weight loss, the end of the world (yes, that’s right), the state of sumo and his many charity activities.

We are also joined by Japan Today editor Chris Betros, movie critic Don Morton and Tokyo Comedy Store stand-up comedian Chris Wells.

Travel writer Vicki Beyer recommends some day trips from Tokyo, while contributing lifestyle/food writer Maki Yasuda tells us where to sample some of the best cakes in the world. Maki also previews the Palace Hotel and Design Festa.

Plus Johnny Depp and Tim Burton will be in town. We’ll let you know where to see them.

All this and lots more on the JPOD!
