Danny Choo, the intrepid Japanese reporter on all things Asian-Pop, was recently filming a segment on high schools in Japan for a TV show he is producing named Culture:Japan at Fujisawa High School. They were kind enough to let him film at will, including the much talked about, but little seen scene of Keion-bu (after school music activities). Danny has a knack of taking about three billion photos for every tiny possible thing he is interested in, then posting them to his award winning blog as a ongoing document to Asian culture. Below are just a few pics form this new series, but you can see much more at his website here. Originally from the UK, Danny has been working in the Japanese Internet since 1999. You can read more about his amazing life and writings right here.
And, as an added bonus, here is a short video of some cute Japanese school girls explaining why they do not like their teachers. No translation, sorry![video src="http://theendofbeing.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/teacher-complaints.mp4" /]
