Studio 360 in Japan: Lisa Katayama and Roland Kelts help the Studio 360 crew make sense of Japan. The website has videos and photos and the podcast is here. I especially like Yoshioka Tokujin‘s explanation of Japanese design using tofu. They also interviewed Yoshiharu Tsukamoto as well as Shigeru Ban.
I thought that Katayama and Kelts did a great job of sharing the current Japan, and parts of Japan that mainstream America does not normally see in the media, with the NPR audience.
