Japanese TV Adverts #51, #52 and #53

Our new post with the best TV adverts from Japan is now here! I could watch Japanese adverts all day. They always bring a smile to my face and I always find a product that think I’ll have to pick up next time I’m in Japan. In this selection of adverts you will find some of the following: talking dogs riding a train, an ad from AKB48, a bunch of gaming apps (a few I must try out), Strong Zero drink (I have to try next time I’m in Japan), cotton snow candy from Mr Donut, Sofbank has a robot hover on sale, a cat on holiday and a lot lot more. Enjoy!

We can’t get enough of the wonderful and lot of time the wacky TV adverts from Japan. We just love to share them with you and we hope you enjoy this great selection of adverts that have been shown on TV in Japan recently. We have ads from SoftBank as normal (which has a bit of a cross over to the world of Disney this time), a cat driving it’s Yahoo! van around the streets like cats do, a fun ad for the theme park Fuji-Q Highland, an advert for Green Aroma featuring Perfume, and also an ad showing some of the cool looking robots from Murata.

Japanese TV Adverts #43

This time we start off the first advert in a typical Japanese bath with an ad for a bag of sour sweets that I would love to try one day. We also find lots of other great ads, some being a cool advert from SoftBank making a 3d figure appear from a mobile screen, the Pocky devil is also back with a new advert sharing Pocky with someone in heaven this time and a whole lot more to enjoy!
