Here is the second half of our earthquake special. We hope you don't mind that it's a bit long. Although it's almost been two months since the earthquake, the recovery efforts are still ongoing. Please continue to keep Japan in your thoughts.

t's been one month since the big earthquake in Japan (referred to as 東日本大震災 (Higashi-Nihon Dai-Shinsai) here in Japan). Aaron & I finally had a second to sit down and discuss what it was like before and after the earthquake. We ended up having WAAAAAAY too much to talk about and couldn't fit everything in one episode. In fact, I had to cut out over half of it just to keep it down to a 2 part episode. Part I is all about the earthquake itself--what it felt like, what we were doing, etc. Part II (which will posted in the next week or two) will be all about what happened after the earthquake--the food shortages, power outages, radiation, etc. We hope things here in Japan will return back to normal soon and we continue to send our thoughts to those who have suffered so much over the last month.

We are BACK with our latest episode of HHJ! In this episode, we wanted to respond some viewer requests to showcase Japanese game centers. It's pretty loud and the video's a little shaky, but I hope you get a sense for what it's like. We even show you what's it's like inside a Japanese Purikura booth. We had a totally Sweet Sugary time (...you'll get what we mean when you watch the episode).
