A Zoom Seminar: "What’s On Now in Hokkaido and Fukuoka"
Delaina Miyazaki
Producer: "Anything Goes! Hokkaido" Podcast
Nick Szasz
Owner and Publisher "Fukuoka Now"

18:30-20:00, November 11, 2021

Throughout Japan, foreign print and broadcast media owners and producers provide uniquely local or regionally-focused foreign language news, information, and entertainment. For FCCJ members on assignment in these areas, or writing about them from Tokyo, they are also a rich resource of local knowledge and contacts. Join us for a Zoom meeting with two long-term foreign residents at opposite ends of the country as they discuss their media activities in Hokkaido and Fukuoka, and what their readers, listeners, interviewees, and advertisers are talking about.

Delaina Miyazaki is a 20-year resident of Hokkaido and the inspiration behind the “Anything Goes! Hokkaido” podcast series that spotlights the Sapporo and Hokkaido foreign community. She is also the recorded English voice for announcements by JR bus, Hokuto bus, Sapporo Art Park, the Sapporo Snow Festival, and Hokkaido University, among many others, and has done voiceover recording for NHK and video narration for JA Obihiro. Television work includes appearances on TV Tokyo and NTV, as well as on the Ustream program “Iibesa Hokkaido”.

Nick Szasz, a native of Toronto, is the owner and publisher of Fukuoka Now, a multilingual magazine, website, social media, and video creator. He's also the Chairperson of the Fukuoka International Business Association, a Cool Japan Ambassador, and a recipient of the Fukuoka Culture Prize. In January 2021, Nick launched “Kyushu Live”, a YouTube channel sharing live-streamed narrated walks throughout Kyushu. Later this month, his company will launch “Itoshima Now” a website dedicated to the seaside area just outside Fukuoka City where he lives.
