Japanese Street Wisdom Podcast Episode 4 [Un Kon Don 運根鈍]

Hello everybody! Hope you are safe and well!

Welcome to the 4th episode of the Japanese Street Wisdom Podcast.

In this episode, I will introduce a Japanese saying “Un Kon Don” (運根鈍), the Japanese secret of success!

I had never really thought hard about this saying before, but I found it interesting that it is actually heavily influenced by Japanese fatalism and our effort to defy it!

Please do let me know what you thought about this episode and/ or your suggestions (for improvement, future content, etc.)!

As in the thumbnail above, this podcast is now available both on Spotify and Apple Podcasts!!!

You can also listen to it on my YouTube Channel if you prefer.

Thank you always for your continued support!

Japanese Street Wisdom Podcast Episode 3 [Kissa Kippan]

Welcome to the 3rd episode of my Japanese Street Wisdom Podcast!!!

Today, I will be talking about a zen saying “Kissa Kippan” (喫茶喫飯 きっさきっぱん).

Please listen to the episode to find out what this maxim means, but this wisdom can be applied to literally everything we do in our lives.

Please do let me know what you thought about it in the comment section below.

I am an actor/ storyteller so find it quite challenging to just narrate, so if you have good advice to improve my presentation style, please let me know as well 😀

This Podcast is now available on Apple Podcasts as well as Spotify!!!

Japanese Street Wisdom Podcast Episode 2 [Shimizuno Jirocho]

Hi all, Eishi here!!! How’s everything going?

As I mentioned in another blog post, I was voiceless for a while, but my voice is now about 90% back!!!

It’s about time for Episode 2 of my Japanese Street Wisdom Podcast.

In this episode, I will be talking about a very famous yakuza called Shimizuno Jirocho.

If you still remember what I said in the first episode, I did promise that this podcast would not be about yakuza, but here you go.

Me being me, I couldn’t resist it! Hope you’ll enjoy it!

My podcast is now available on Spotify as well!!!

Eishi’s Podcast Available RIGHT NOW!!!

Hi everybody! Hope everything is well with you! 😊

I am letting you know that my new podcast is just about to go live… as soon as I post this blog entry!!!

The show is called ‘Japanese Street WisdomA Rakugo Performer’s Musings’, and I will be talking about Japanese wisdom from the past that I learn through my rakugo practice.

As you can see, it is still a rough-cut, but I NEEDED to post the first episode asap as it is the first step nonetheless, and from now on it will force me to keep posting new episodes.

The bright side of posting the first episode anyway, regardless of its quality, is that from here onward, it will always be up and up!!!

It will be also available on Spotify, iTunes, and YouTube.

Thank you always for your continued support!!!
