Continental Drift for March 12, 2012 — Japan

This week, we take a journey across the other, bigger pond (the Pacific, silly!) to listen to Japan, a country whose history and economy have a significant effect on our lives! We take a night to explore the sights and sounds of Nippon-koku in ways we might normally not get to! And it’s all here on the Drift.
