In this episode we get musical as we’re joined by Robert Rÿker, the founder, music director, and conductor of the Tokyo Sinfonia, to talk about his life in music, why he created the Tokyo Sinfonia, what he hopes to achieve through music education in Japanese schools, the group’s upcoming concerts that will honor Mozart’s birthday, and more.

In addition to our featured interview, we preview what’s coming up in the February issue of Metropolis, and chat about DARS’s attempt to conquer the chocolate world. We also bring you Audio Lingoist Japanese language tips, and once again make a few trips to Classifieds Corner.

This week’s segments were recorded at Tokyo Midtown and Roppongi Hills.
