- Japanese Londoners

Michiru and Yumi
Michiru and Yumi
 
In this edition we meet two Japanese Londoners. They've lived in the capital for years so are they more Japanese than English?

Their children speak English, but Japanese is spoken at home, so their kids are bilingual.

Michiru and Yumi talk about how there are a lot of stereotypes about Japanese people and why they are not true!
