The first time I watched this program I was still in my country. I came to Japan because I love Japanese popular culture. But through watching this program I found that many popular cultures originate from traditional cultures. This helped me to know more about Japan and Japanese people. It has also made my life in Japan more colorful!

What DON'T I love about being on Cool Japan?! It's really great being around people of all sorts of backgrounds and learning about their country as well as the one that brought us together (Japan). It's also really fun to watch with my husband (due to the duel language), we get to discover new things about the world that we probably wouldn't have gotten to otherwise.
