Podcast by Tsukuba Blogger

Salamin, a blog by a woman from the Phillipines who lives in Tsukuba, has started a podcast. Salamin is the same blog that gave us the insightful post on Ten Japanese Habits Worth Emulating, so I'm sure the podcast will be interesting.

Ten Japanese Habits Worth Emulating

I read a top ten list by a Tsukuba blogger that I thought was really interesting, so I thought I would share it with you.

Ten Japanese Habits Worth Emulating by Filipinos - Part One
Ten Japanese Habits Worth Emulating by Filipinos - Part Two

I found it interesting because I learned some things about life in the Philippines and I was also able to see Japan through the writer's eyes.

Bloggers in Tsukuba

Here is a list of blogs I have found that are written by people who are (or have been) in Tsukuba.


This list will update itself as I find more (and add them to the Alien Times' del.icio.us account), so keep checking back here if you are interested in reading about life in Tsukuba from real Tsukubaites.

If you have a blog and you want it to be added here, please contact us.
