    Japanese Public Bathing Exposed: The Naked Truth ★ ONLY in JAPAN no.26

    I remember when I first came to Japan and a new Japanese friend invited me to a sento, a public bath. My first thought was “WTF dude! I’m not going get naked with you in the same bath and pretend you aren’t some naked guy next.” I grew up bathing in private, usually with just a quick shower and have considered nudity as the first step to … you know!!

    TBS ひるおび 2014年07月31日

    I appeared on TBS ひるおび program on 07/31/2014 to talk about the increase in foreign tourists, especially from China and how foreigners want to “do” things in Japan, not just “see” things. ひるおび (Hiruobi) is a live broadcast and I was a little nervous at first, but the host Megumi-san was very nice and I saw it as a conversation not a TV appearance. TBS sent a private car to pick me up from my house! That was really amazing! […]

    John Daub (ジョン・ドーブ) and Nishito Akiko (西任 暁子) broke down Masayoshi Son’s speech and highlight his strong points and weak points. Giving a key note speech, presentation or talk to a group in English requires connecting with the audience. It’s important to understand the culture of the people you are talking to.

    John Daub at TEDxTokyo Teachers: Set Silly Dreams

    John Daub spoke at TEDxTOKYO TEACHERS 2013 about his trip from Japan to the top of Kilimanjaro … with a can of coffee. He enjoyed drinking GEORGIA’S KILIMANJARO 50/50 canned coffee so much that it inspired him to set an unusual goal of taking a can of that coffee “home” to the top of Africa’s highest peak. Along the way, he met many fantastic people and had tons of little adventures. The point of the talk: Achieving or reaching the […]
