I found this interesting show on TV the other day. It is supposed to be a pay streaming show but I was able to watch it for free limited time or something.
But I think it is very interesting because I learned a lot about Japan and Japanese culture and other stuff that I didn't know about from watching this show.

Of course it is a TV show, so he goes to places and does crazy stuff that "regular" people don't get to do.
Dress up like a boy band.

Japanese people have this strange obsession about robots and stuff I don't know why but this translation robot is so bad, it is so funny!

I learned a lot of weird stuff from this show, or through his perspectives...
He uses "Sumimasen" a lot. Which means like "I am sorry" or "Excuse me", but he says that a lot for no reason and then he follows with "Arigato" which is "thank you".

Japanese people use this word a lot and apologize first to start a conversation or do something and I think he picked up on that. And I say "I sorry" a lot too in English.
My friends often ask me why I am apologizing... I am not sure but it is kind of like my habit.
I just do it without thinking about it too much.
I think its similar to "I love you" in the US. People say that a lot, maybe too often so that it doesn't mean anything sometimes?!

But anyway, it is a very interesting show if you have access to it, you should watch it 🤣

Sumimasen Tomoyan san, do you know about Chris Broad? He's a British youtuber that lives in Japan. He's lived there for quite some time, maybe you'll find his content similar to the one on this show. This is his channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/AbroadinJapan
