Full one-hour video of the first episode of Culture Japan. It’s a TV show produced by blogger Danny Choo and broadcast by Tokyo MX and Animax Asia. Video in Japanese but with English subtitles.

Danny Choo runs a popular blog here, and looks like he’s working to build a media franchise of his own. Beside this he also made global headlines a few years ago as the Tokyo Storm Trooper.
