Woman-to-woman conversations twice a day, with regular repeats to aid listening skills!
Wide range of topics: wartime shortages; cooking; sardine fishing; my father did black-market business with American G.I.'s; the health benefits of oranges; how to grill fish bones; child labor in wartime Japan; knitting with younger siblings hanging off you; knitting V-neck sweaters; how my husband choked on a fishbone.....
....and return to start again.
Catch it all a second, third time and then try our special service: Blended Stories. Can YOU tell where one story ends and another starts?
Come on up to snowy Sapporo - and get snowed/frozen in with a real-life Japanese old lady.
Enjoy hours and hours of one-on-one time to hone your Japanese language skills.
