Squiz the World goes to… Japan

Each fortnight, we give the world globe a spin, and see where we land. Then we take the kids of Australia on an audio excursion to visit that country and its people.

Join your captain, Amanda Bower, on an audio adventure, where kids in Australia explore different countries each fortnight! Today, we’re heading to Japan, the land of Hello Kitty, sushi, and sumo wrestling. Our Super Fast Supersonic Jetliner takes us to the bustling city of Tokyo, lush forests, and unique islands. Learn fun facts about Japan’s geography, culture, and language, with cool videos and interactive activities. Experience Japanese school life, including delicious kyoshoku lunches, and plunge into the world of sumo wrestling. Get ready for an exciting trip to the Land of the Rising Sun!
