You are the reason JAPAN Forward launched The Week – a podcast for busy people who want to keep abreast of Japan’s culture, politics, business, economy and research worlds, and sports, too. Hosted by Arielle Busetto.

In our fifteenth episode, we spotlight the funeral of Shinzo Abe, and the ongoing investigation of his death. 

It was an eventful week in politics, with Prime Minister Fumio Kishida mapping out his policies going forward after a successful election for his party.

Further forward, we look into some summer events coming back to Japan as the country learns to live with the ongoing pandemic, like Gion Matsuri, and the ongoing Nagoya Basho sumo tournament. Find the related articles list below.

Join us wherever you get your podcasts — on Spotify, Apple Music, Google Podcasts, or directly through our website at JAPAN Forward. Reach out and stay in touch on Twitter @ariellebusetto.

New podcasts will come out every weekend, and remain available for listeners on your own schedule. 

We have a library of podcasts available on our landing page, including Real Issues, Real Voices, Real Japan ー in both English and Japanese, and Sports Talk
