Most Saturday mornings I try and watch some children’s TV. The idea is that I might learn some Japanese but I’m not really at that level. Still, it is quite fun to see some of the stuff that Japanese kids watch.

The best program is Oshiri Tantei. This is literally “Bum Detective”. It really takes the biscuit.

I also watch E Dance Academy. Sadly the thin walls along with Japanese neighbourly etiquette mean that I can’t join in the dancing.

I also watch a program about learning English. That might seem a bit strange given I can speak English but it actually provides a handy insight as it involves translating phrases from Japanese into English.
