My Favorite Commercials from My Time in Japan

I love Japanese TV, which you might’ve noticed, so of course I ended up watching a lot of TV shows during my time in Japan (at nights I spent at home). And when you end up watching TV, you end up watching commercials, a lot of them. But Japanese commercials are often highly entertaining, so here are my three favorite commercials from my month in Tokyo.

Sony Damage Insurance CM with Miori Takimoto

There are a couple of other versions with Mi-chan but this one is my favorite. I’ve completely fallen for her, and I love reading her blog! She’s just sooo cute!

Kishiri Crystal CM with Miki Maya

Miki is a always somewhere up there among the best, she’s always being imitated and made fun of by Japanese comedians, and rightfully so^^ Mayottenaide~!

Nissan NOTE Trapeze CM

I don’t know how many variations the Nissan NOTE commercial come in, but there are many of them! If anything they’ll make you go “WTF”! The “nani sore!?” gets me every time.

What’s your most recent favorite Japanese commercial?
