Back by Popular Demand: Now You Know Your… P-Q-R’s. Commentary with Jesper Koll, Dave McCaughan, and Bill Hall. Moderated by Patrick Newell.
Announcing the sixth year of this very popular annual panel event where three of Japan’s most seasoned experts are placed in different corners of the room and try to top each other from three different perspectives about Japan while using letters of the alphabet, random numbers, and unmarked graphs. This year the letters are P, Q, and R. Topics include economics, health, culture, education, and whatever else spontaneously emerges.
The earlier ABC, DEF, GHI, JKL, and MNO events sold out quickly and garnered overwhelmingly positive feedback. Make sure to register early. Don’t miss this chance to hear the latest thoughts from these Japan experts!
