It is time for the concluding part of our interview with Rice Bud, John Ogawa! We look at more pictures to learn about other cultural norms in Japan like first grader yellow caps and the countless steps that make-up the grueling elementary school graduation process. There’s also time to talk about weird Canadian television and John’s PikaInu Youtube channel. The other 2 parts of this show can be found here.
