A video blog or video log, usually shortened to vlog /vlɒɡ/, is a form of blog for which the medium is video and is a form of web television popular on the video sharing platform YouTube.
JVlog refers to a community of video bloggers, known as vloggers, that live in Japan. The JVlog community is made up of foreign and Japanese nationals that make videos for YouTube. The JVlog community has many get togethers across Japan throughout the year. The biggest parties being the cherry blossom viewing party, called Hanami, in Tokyo in the early spring, and the yearly get together, also in Tokyo, in late summer or early fall. The Tokyo get togethers bring in over 100 people each year with some guests flying in from as far away as America and Europe just to join in. Other notable get together is the Kansai meet up, usually in early winter, in Kobe.
jvlog.org is a platform for aggregating Japan-related vlogs, but we also encourage content from other surrounding areas such as Korea, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, China, the Philippines, etc.
Japanese Politics 101: The Opposition
Unlike Britain’s parliament, Opposition parties in Japan infrequently hold enough power to effectively sway the Government's agenda. In 2016, the LDP's primary source of resistance, the Democratic Party of Japan, fractured into sub-parties, leaving unimpeded the path for the Abe Cabinet. Recent years have amplified these schisms, with new rules favoring smaller political parties; it is now harder for a single opposition party to coalesce their throw-weight. Join Micheal and host Timothy as they dissect Japan's Opposition parties and their role in Japan’s government.
