Discover what Japan is REALLY like. Every week, join Burke and Ben as they share their personal experiences and opinions about living in Japan, covering all topics such as working, studying Japanese, customs, holidays, current events and much much more. Whatever you want to know about Japan, you can find it here.


Ben, an Englishman of Chinese descent, came to Japan in 2007 to shred the legendary Hokkaido powder, with the intention of staying for a year or two. Many years later, he is still there. Burke, a half-Japanese and half-American, arrived in Japan in 2002 to discover his roots, and woke up 17 years later on the VIJ podcast sharing all the secrets of this enchanted land!
