Understanding Japanese Sense of Humor Through Media

If you want to laugh at Japanese comedy shows like a true native, you should know the cultural context behind each story.  Professionals from Japan Visualmedia Translation Academy (JVTA) in Tokyo will be introducing and analyzing some of Japan’s most popular comedy shows, comedians, and entertainers on the air right now. You’ll see just how much culture, planning, thought, and context goes into a single head bop and the slightest of side-eyes.  When it comes to comedy, you need more than just language to laugh along with the natives!
