For the 24th episode of Private Parts Unknown, your hosts Courtney Kocak & Sofiya Alexandra, welcome reporter Hiroko Imai & video producer Marina Yajima Taylor for the 3rd episode from our Tokyo, Japan series.
Hiroko (@hirokotv) is a 32-year-old freelance producer & reporter for Asian Boss who grew up in Japan & lives in the Tokyo area. Marina (@marina__taylor) is a twentysomething video producer & recent transplant from Seattle to Tokyo. Marina’s mom is Japanese, so she was raised having a strong familiarity with the culture.
We chop it up about gender equality in Japan, the endearing term of "loser dog" for unmarried women over 30, the 5 levels of Japanese sex & intimacy work, inadvertently discovering that friends are sex workers, “I’m sorry for hurting you” divorce pay-outs, deeply entrenched discrimination against people perceived to foreign in such a homogenous society, the M-curve, how understanding of the kanji for girl power changes as girls get older & so much more.
