LWIF EP42: 私のラーメン屋 (My Ramen Shop)

On a visit to YouTube Space Tokyo, we were shown the set for the ramen shop. The kids thought it was neat, so we gathered up some family members and the kids made a mini-drama (ドラマ) out of it. It was all for fun, so don’t take the acting too seriously 🙂 (behind-the-scenes footage down below!)

LWIF EP41: Hakone: Where you ride in, look at, and soak in a lot of stuff

LWIF EP39: Your Videos + New X Channel – Update v1.0

We want your videos! What kind of videos? Videos of your living room. We had previously asked for your videos in general, but found it difficult to make a video out of comments, pictures, and videos that had no central theme. So, we’re going to try and ask for a very specific video, which is a video of your living room. How to submit? Contact us and we’ll go from there. We don’t know how many submissions, and from which countries, so we’d hate for you to record something and then have us not use it. So if you let…
