List of English Media In Japan

When I got back to Japan after three years in LA last Aug, I have realized the growing number of foreign workers, and foreign-language media in Japan even in-and-around my hometown.

8 years ago when I first left for LA, there were mostly so-called “blue-color workers” since my hometown is very famous for oil refinary factory, and stuff.

Now I see more white-color foreign workers resides in my hometown. This circumstances completely makes sense why there are rapid growth and demands for English media (or foreign-language media) in Japan.

I did a quick research what kind of English media is popular in Japan. (Only English though).
