日本の形 (The Japanese Tradition)

So it all started with Yiwen sending me the link to this video on how to use hashi (chopsticks). I thought it was really funny so I searched for more in the series (apparently there’re quite a number, although I’ve only found a few that are subbed).

Since I’m in Japan and all it seems only fitting that I watch (and blog) about this, though watching them all has effectively killed about an hour of my life. Haha.

They all start relatively seriously (I actually thought it was a real documentary at first), but get progressively ridiculous and funny. Watch them if you have time – they’re really quite a hoot!

This is a list of episodes and links to the few subbed versions I’ve found online, hopefully I’ll be able to see them all one day ([J] links to the unsubbed versions I’ve found, you can try watching if you’re bored or if you actually understand Japanese).
