BEGIN Japanology invites you into the world of Japanese culture, both traditional and modern, explaining how traditions evolved and the part they still play today in people's everyday lives.

This is a really interesting series that I hope you will enjoy.  I will have the episodes posted below as well as the download links. Files hosted on Rapidplayer.org will require the latest DivX Plus Web Player and/or the latest version of Adobe flash player.

    As i want to study Japanese studies, the video is quite interesting, but i don't like the narrator at all/or format.I'm not quite comfortable with it. I have some similar videos about Japan, the culture etiquettes etc. I'd like you to link this, so that people can understand and comprehend a little bit more about the land, in which I'd like to live some day =)!
    Anyway Zuru, thanks for your great engagement.

  23. All the YouTube links are gone because your first channel is gone. Will you be loading them onto your new channel? Thanks.

  24. Gonna buy the DVD's one at the time. This show deserves to be watched on a much bigger screen with an appropriate ration of popcorn and some friends.

  25. There's another show called Sense of Japan. It's short episodes focusing on specific cultural differences. I think it's a little bit cheesy but still contains interesting information.

  27. I have both DivX Plus and the latest Flash player but the videos STILL dont work. Cant download them either.
    I hate this player.
    DDL links on this blog would help me actually watch many of your great videos, would you please add some?
