This week, we welcome to the pod an old friend, known to some as ‘Tokyo Marathon Man’, ‘Sakuraman’, or, our personal favourite, ‘The Running Christmas Tree’ – Joseph Tame. Jospeh tells the podcast team some amazing tales, including living on top of a mountain with a terrifying Swiss lady, being caught on CNN running around Tokyo inside a Christmas tree, and gradually building a successful creative agency. Plus, Joseph explains why he came to the podcast recording wearing 4 massive pinwheels – the answer to which kind of explains his whole Japan trajectory.
And this week on our Tokyo Stories, Chris ‘hogs the mic’ to tell Greg and Taryn what it was like to attend the Fuji Rock music festival in the middle of a typhoon.

There are certain times in the year that can make your visit to Tokyo less than idea.
