Soundseeing in Akasaka

Warning: This episode is neither work safe nor podsafe. It will corrupt your children and jeopardize your career. And if that weren’t bad enough, it’ll probably hurt your eardrums too.

Last night I had fish & chips with cider at an English pub in Akasaka, took a stroll, talked with a few kyakubiki (customer pullers), and finished up the evening with karaoke. Recently I showed off some photos of me when I was younger, and a friend told me I looked like Freddy Mercury when I was in college, so I chose a song from Queen to sing.

  1. Your karaoke singing cracked me up! I mean, laughing out LOUD! Especially when you started cracking up yourself. Good fun show.

  2. Hey rich, I really enjoyed this podcast. Each segment was fun. The first one was in simple enough Japanese I could follow it, the second was strange and funny, and the third was great too. I enjoy the videos, but I also like it when you talk to people on the street.

    I hope you open that business someday.

  3. Damn that was funny. But you’re really not that bad of a singer, so keep it up. Just let the real Freddie Mercury rest in peace, man, for God’s sake. šŸ™‚

    I love all your content. I’ll be in Japan for the first time in late Aug and Sept and you really are giving me some great images of what Tokyo is like. Keep doing what you’re doing.
