Just Japan Podcast 4: Snowmageddon in Japan

In episode 4 of the Just Japan Podcast, I interview Ben Mortensen, a teacher living in Yamanashi Prefecture, west of Tokyo. On February 14th, 2014, that part of Japan received a crippling and record-breaking amount of snow. Ben recounts his experiences in one of Japan’s biggest snow falls ever. I also talk about some recent news in Japan as well as last weekend’s Tokyo Marathon.
