Having gone back and listened to all your backcasts. Also having lived my entire adult life in Japan it’s good to have some exposure here.

  • Michael Bury kindly send us this, also about Episode 41 (39:00)

Just sent the link to my son, Jack Bury he’s off to Niseko for the season

It was really great to listen to your Japan expert though – fascinating! Do note that our trips to Japan are of variable durations, so they can be longer that a 7-nights should guests prefer.

  • In our ‘Ask Jim & Iain’ feature we tackled the question ‘How do I spot a good looking helmet?’ (41:00)
  • Safety and fit is more important than how it looks, but there was a divide on whether sunnies should be worn with a helmet! (43:30)
  • The ‘punter gap’ issue was more clear cut (42:00)
