Fuji Television’s International Department Launches Japanese-language Course on YouTube for Global Viewers

Fuji Television Network, Inc.’s international department has started its new internet program in September. After a worldwide “Stay home, stay safe” track, people are getting accustomed to working at home, social distancing, and higher hygiene standards. During these times, “Mind Blowing Tips! CRAZY JAPANESE LESSONS — A compulsory course for our global friends –,” an educational show to enjoy while staying at home, aims to introduce interesting facts about Japanese to the world.

Japanese is a difficult language to learn with its plethora of polite expressions, metaphors, words with double meanings, differences in private and public speaking, etc. This one-of-a-kind educational program will entertain and teach crazy Japanese expressions to global viewers, including: words that change meanings with a single letter, weird names for things, and phrases that animals would make complaints about if they knew their meaning.

The program’s MC Nobuyuki Tsuchiya from Knights, one of Japan’s top traditional-style comic duos, and the show’s mascot Peruri will spice up each lesson. Renowned TV writer Mitsuru Kuramoto, aka the “Japanese-language stalker,” is writing the show and is doing the voice of Peruri.
