The Japanofiles Podcast

Welcome to the Japanofiles, a podcast about Japan. This podcast, which began in 2009, presents interviews that have been recorded in Japan. Most of the interviewees are native English-speaking foreign residents of Nagano Prefecture who live in the greater Matsumoto area. They share their stories about living and working in Japan. The host of this Japan podcast, Dave Carlson, is a long-time resident of Matsumoto.

In Episode 78 of The Japanofiles Podcast, Dave talks with Alistair Ramsbottom, "a Brit who's been living in Asia for many years and experienced many cultures, (and who now) works in Tokyo, but still enjoys coming home to Nagano." Alistair explains about how he switched from living and working in China to being in Japan, about his connections to the Matsumoto area, and about the challenges of settling into a new Japanese living and working situation.
