In episode 7 of the Oscar-nominated A Year in Japan, Joseph brings to you the sounds of Japan. It’s election time, so anyone who thinks they can enjoy a quiet day in the office has another thing coming. We also hear some sound-bytes from my favourite shoe-shop workers, and a Mac and PC battle it out in pursuit of the title “Worst Japanese language speaker”.

Theres some groovy feedback, and more tips for your life as a student in Japan.

All this and more on the tremendously exciting 7th episode of A Year in Japan.
