New Episode!

Keeping Commuters Safe during the Pandemic

January 29, 2021

 

The coronavirus pandemic has changed the way people live and work. While many people are now working from home, many others are still commuting to work. Because of this, several companies have begun working on solutions to reduce crowding during rush hours. Keio Corporation and Tobu Railway have both begun working on reservation systems, while JR East has developed an app to check train congestion. Train companies are also considering changing fares during peak and off-peak times to ensure passenger safety and peace of mind in these challenging times.

Struggling for episode ideas. Better go check if I have watched the last few episodes.

Yep, would be difficult in the current environment.

Does anyone have any episodes archived?

 

Looking for the episodes focussed on the Hiroshima and toyami lrt systems, they aren't on nhk, and all YouTube videos there were have been removed.

Is she a weeb?  Those single 35yo males living with parents will love the change I guess.

Seems like a strange choice to me but they must be aiming for a new demographic.  From her You Tube channel:

"I am Cathy Cat! I am just a foreigner girl living in Japan working as street reporter. Come join my channel so see what goes on behind the scenes with videos about my life in Japan, japan travel tips and guides of how to live in Tokyo. I feature my everyday as well as Japanese fashion, kawaii Japan goods, Anime, Manga, Hauls and events and more."

I couldn't make it through her Big Announcement about this even though it is only 3 minutes and 51 seconds long.  But since I can be described as very low key I am probably not the best person to judge.  Wonder how she will fit in with Ryo.

Ciao,

Tony Galiani

She has made some cool videos about the Tokyo Subway and other railway related topics. Probably one of the reasons how she got the job. But I wonder how this will change the overall atmosphere. I wish her luck and will keep an open mind.

 

 

 
this was probably her biggest “train” topic video, shared before also.

Very impressive linguistic skills! I'd be interested in learning her story.

Woooaaaa where is the energy dial, quick get me the remote! Wonder how she will be on the show.
 

One of the reasons I like many of the nhk shows is their calm nature. It’s soothing in a world of tv culture here with even documentaries have to have dire catastrophes just before each commercial (oh no the train is going to crash if the engineer can’t do the thing he has done a thousand times of using the brakes!!!) — the calmness is appreciated. But I’m an old fart that watches for content not drama.

First Russel, now Nathan.  I hate to be morbid but realistically the clock is already ticking on Cathy.  Grim stuff.

In Cathy Cat’s “defense,” her style seems more typical of what Japanese television is actually like.

 

YouTuber Chris Broad has some thoughts about Japanese television:

True. It also remains to be seen whether she'll do the show "in-character". She may well tone it down a lot for this show.

There are aspects of Japanese pop culture I think are awesome and aspects I find absolutely bewildering.

Honestly, visiting Japan was like being whisked away in a spaceship to a world on the other side of the galaxy.

It is a study in contrasts! NHK channel here is always highly reserved. Even the news is now more reserved than the bbc!
