This is a thread for anyone interested in Japanese people, culture and history. Like my thread about Korean culture this thread will have a general feel to it. I hope you enjoy the videos, articles and whatever else I can find to share.

Udemy link
I registered for the full course at Udemy. Which is similar to any class online, though it's more flexible. The course offers all the videos, PDF files, and MP3 of the music featured in the videos; if any of you are ever interested in registering for the class.

Hosted by Peter Barakan, this program explores many aspects of Japan, both traditional and contemporary: arts, sports, entertainment, food, technology, nature, etc.

Don't mention it! I have several links I plan on sharing later tonight, involving ninjas and how Japanese castles are uniquely equipped in dealing with them.

I saw a really interesting, although a bit depressing, video the other day about 'internet cafe refugees' in Japan, it's apparently something that got big in the late 90s because it's cheaper to pay to stay there than rent your own place. They have wash/shower facilities and everything. It was just a crazy little slice of life into part of their culture.
