here’s a good question that i have, when is the next chapter of it takes two going to be broadcasted to the entire world
This is a very good question - but I believe the next broadcast will be just with me 😔
Also for everyone else, this is a chat where you can ask me ANYTHING ! Let’s start a thread about fun things ☺️
This weekend I had the chance to find a record from Masayoshi Takanaka! Anybody knows this artist?
I knew him!!!
Many years ago, I encounted his song for the first time because my uncle's PC starting song was 'Blue Lagoon'
Awesome ! The Album I found in the record store is also fantastic
I've never heard of the artist. What kind of songs does he sing?
Hey Yumi ! He does not really sing actually. It’s mainly instrumental - kind of Soul/Jazz from the 70s/80s. You can find some of his music also on YouTube 😉
Hi, Ari! Thanks for sharing the information! I'll check it out on Youtube later!
By the way, I just finished listening to your webinar but I was able to listen to it only for 5 minutes😅It was still interesting though😊I'm looking forward to joining your next webinar!
No worries ! Thanks for tuning in ! Let me know if you have any questions about it anytime ☺️
Yumi san, we'll try to make it a video on YouTube later so you can actually rewatch it even with subtitles😉✨
Wow! Thank you Natsu san❗️That must be helpful for me❗️I'm looking forward to it☺️✨
I know that person actually；> and Maria Takeuchi is my favorite in city pop😌 let's form a band together! hahah
A LanCul band would actually be amazing ! 😄 I love Takeuchi Mariya too. My friend bought me her record as a birthday present last year !! ☺️
Also, if you guys like video games, I will be playing a game called Life is Strange at 7PM on LanCul’s YouTube channel. It’s a game where we have to make decisions together that will influence the ending of the story! Tune in and help me in the live chat ! ☺️
I love Takeuchi Maria! プラスチックラブ is sooo good 🤩
29th in April is a holiday called syowa (era) no hi " 昭和の日". I listened and sang syowa song that was tuned on the radio yesterday. Mariya Takeuchi and Taturo Yamasita, too.
Hi, we talked about Will Smith slapping Chris Rock. I understood people react that differently each their own country due to differences in sense of humor. So I wanna watch you mates think of that!
LanCul mates are from various countries but can speak English. Do they feel same or different? I believe we can watch YouTube video about that in the future.
Hey @Ken.Y, that’s a really good question. While here in Japan most people supported Will Smith, abroad (US, EU) it was a very mixed reaction.
Mixed? So we can hear wide ranged-opinions!
Yes, exactly !
Is there anyone into Simpsons or Rick and Morty? I’ve always wondered if the humor of those adult cartoons is popular in Japan 🤔💭 ?
I love Rick and Morty! but hmmm living almost 4 years in Japan I think that show would not be considered popular or funny for the majority here 🤔
I don't think neither of them are popular in Japan. Because until Netflix arrived in Japan, only a few pay televisions show them, and almost Japanese had no chance to watch any cartoons.
i couldn't understand Rick and Morty humor at all before i moved to the states. but after living there for while, i could see why it's so funny. like soooo funny lol
Hello Ari looking forward to seeing your live tonight!😁
Thanks ! I hope you liked the content 😉 Can’t wait to watch the second episode of Friends with you guys ☺️
Hi Ari! I've heard you feel under the weather on Natsu san's webinar! Are you ok?? Get well soon:)
Yes Haruka ! It’s one of those days… I’m sure I’ll be feeling better tomorrow ☺️
wow look at you! you just used “feel under the weather”from tonight's webeinar! way to go!🙌🏻
Sounds good Ari:) Take it easy! I'm looking forward to taking your session!
Yes Natsusan! I tryed before I forget😵 I was enjoyed and learned a lot from today's webinar:) Thank you as always!
get better soon, Ari! 🙌🏻 gotta have some rest!
Thank you Keni - san ! this means a lot !
Also thank you Meya, I’ll try to relax 😉
Ari~ get better soon~ 🌿 いつもありがとうー 😄
Ari, thank you for today's session! please take a rest and have healthy food like okayu with ume!!（´-`）.｡oO
That's good for your stomach !
I live Okayu ! Fantastic when having a cold ☺️
Ari,I hope you are feeling better. take care!!!
flowers are beautiful, has anyone been to ashikaga flower park ?!
I went to Ashikaga a few weeks ago! Truly beautiful! I made a video on my IG and have so many other pics to edit 😁
I went there last week and I fell in love!! 💜💜
i heard about it!! It’s popular for wisteria, i think. But i missed my chance to go this year tho :))
yeah maddie, it’s all dead now, don’t go. the website said it was “available” until may 22nd, so disappointed to see it all gone. debbi i guess i was 7 days late !
Yeah flowers outings are tricky, you never know when they will bloom and disappear 🥲🥲 i had to cancel my trip to Hitachi seaside park for the same reason…
Maddie, sorry to hear that...But you still have a lot of options to visit!! Enjoy planning for the next trip!
I heard that, on top of the tricky timing, many flower places were ‘cut down’ during the most serious time of the pandemic to stop people from going out 😭 such a waste of beautiful nature…
Hi,Ari!I found GAP has collaboration T-shirt with FRIENDS now!You can waer that during the webinar🤣✨Anyway I'm looking foward to joining the webinar🥰
No way ! 😄 @Yui I see if I can find it 😄 Please all, join tonight’s webinar where we will be discussing Episode 2 of FRIENDS! See you all there 😉
Thanks for your always entertaining webinars.
Can you please create a waiting room on Zoom for all webinars? It is hard to press the enter button at the same time as the start time, so we are a few minutes late for that webinar, every time.
This is not a severe request. If it is technically easy, please☺️
Hey Honda-san ! Thank you for your request :) As far as I know there already is a waiting room. So if you join a few minutes earlier we will let everyone join at the same time
I'm not the host of the meeting but I will make sure that you guys can join in time ! Glad you enjoy my webinars so far! :)
Thanks for the thoughtful reply. The smart phone app shows "not yet start time", I cannot enter before that time.
I will try that under different conditions, by connecting from my PC instead of my smart phone. Thanks.
Give it a try ! If you encounter the same issue please let us know ! ☺️
Meetup was fun ! Thank you for coming by you all ☺️
I wished I could join the meet up!🥲
sounds so fun!✨
No worries @Ayaka ! There will be plenty more in the future 😉
For all those who love video games 👾🕹 or also just love watching them. You can follow my channel on TWITCH where I often stream myself playing games in my free time. I will link the channel down below 😉
Hi! I will join Ari's online session today!
I’m glad you made it in @Misato ☺️ Hope to see you in the next one too 😉
Hello Ari! I just wondered what Netflix show do you like. I saw your Friends LIVE show and it got me wondered 🤔✨
I just watched Stranger things on Netflix the latest season 4🍿 Any recommendation?😊
Stranger Things is really fun! They're a little different and they're not shows, but movies like Stand By Me, It, and Summer of 84 are kind of similar. Though It and Summer of 84 are kind of scary lol.
@Brennnen I started watching Stranger Things from this morning.
@Ari How about you?
Hey ! Stranger Things is definitely super fun to watch. I’m a huge fan of a show called Peaky Blinders. Very different from Friends and Stranger things, but fantastic acting and cinematography !

lI love sunny mornings in Japan !
I would like to ask you something.
I’ve just read this article about health and diet.
There was term “free radicals”
So I googled it and came up “フリーラジカル”😂
what does free radicals mean?
free radical/an atom or group of atoms with at least one free electron, which combines with other atoms very easily
It is thought that free radicals can damage cells.
Congratulations on the opening of Osaka branch!

I’m going to post some food Journeys from Osaka here, have a look:
Amazing かき氷 !
Great lunch at Namba Station 🚉
Cold “lemon beer” and 焼き小籠包
Fantastic 巻き寿司 !
Super great Italian food in Nara !
和牛 Udon at Tsurutontan !
油そば at アメ村
And my favorite.. Izakaya nights 😍😍😍
Jaws Hot Dog at USJ 😄
豚骨醤油ラーメン at the legendary 金流 Ramen shop in Osaka ! すごい美味しかった 😉
Wow, how is USJ Ari, I have never been there :((
saaame! I really want to go there but the crowds and queues are kinda discouraging me 😅
There is the same shop in Mikan Shimokita.
Ari 😮!! You enjoy eating in Osaka way more than me 😂lol What's your top 3 so far? 🍽✨
And Meya, I can totally relate to that, I hate being crowded place 😅 But you can enjoy observing people (there's a strange tendency that we would see same groups repeatedly even in such a huge area)
and しりとり with your company while waiting 👍🏻 My friends and i added some extra rules to make it more fun 😘 We call it the extreme しりとり, which makes us feel the time goes by so fast 😆
Ari I was planing to go your settion today but Í arrive at osaka at 8 Ím Soory I will be Osaka by sunday do you have some.recommend restaurant?
the pasta from Italian place in Nara was absolutely fantastic!!!!
Hey @Tsune ! That’s totally fine. I already imagined something must have happened. Definitely try some Takoyaki called Kogaryu. I think it’s a good start into the Takoyaki scene here in Osaka 😄
Yesterday I went to Osaka on a business trip. However, I could not join the session at Lancal Namba. Maybe next time!
金龍！What a nostalgic .. That remind me of my 20's when I was in Osaka.
金龍ramen made me like tonkotsu ramen♪
I gotta try that 金龍 the next time I be in Osaka, first time trying tonkotsu ramen in Fukuoka was not as good as I expected :D
Oh really?? @Tam That’s sad to hear - my expectations are super high though.
金龍 is definitely a must try when coming to Osaka!
Well the taste was good but the smell, not so much Ari 🤣
Glory to those who challenge!
omg i loooooove 金龍!! i ate there 2 or 3 times when i went to Osaka with my family. i ordered 2 bowls for myself, it was THAT good 😍😍
Hi Ari, today thank you for your webinar. It’s so fantastic for me!
And nice to meet you!
I really wanna know the places or foods which are you recommend .
Bc I’ll go to Kyoto and Osaka in Sep :-)!
I LOVE how this became a food AMA 😄
Hey @Reika - Please definitely try Takoyaki at 甲賀流 in Amemura. It’s a must eat when coming here. Also if you feel adventurous please try Okonomiyaki at Chitose (ちとせ). You will not regret it 😉
Thank you for your reply!
Of course i will try it bc i enjoyed youtube a lot !
And i am looking forward to next one maybe USJ🙌🏻🙌🏻
Btw i wanna try かき氷 in your first post of your Instagram!!
If you like, please tell me where is it 🍧🏻
I don’t remember the name of the place 😭😭 Maybe @Natsu remembers…
So I ask Natsu san about it maybe next livestream 💓
Ari, you tired korean choco pie banana flavor? (of course?) nowadays I can find it easily in Japan. I liked it.
@Reika sorry I don’t remember neither 😭 we both didn’t pay attention cuz we were too forced on the かき氷 lol BUT! it was in Namba station! near namba komejirushi👍 hope it helps!
@Reika now i got myself so curious, I searched and found it! it was this place called 茶想 もりた園🍵 !
You are so sweet 🥺🧡✨
I definitely go to eat there next month 🙌🏻
Actually,I'm going to Germany in September☺️
Do you have any souvenirs to recommend?
Hey @Mao !
Do you mean souvenir for Germany or from Germany?
Sorry, I'm on my way, but I don't think I'll make it in time for the lesson! Please let me be absent this time😭😭😭
I mean,I want to buy some souvenirs for my friends in Japan, so if you have any recommendations for snacks or beer I should buy in Germany, let me know😉
