When it comes to entertaining shows barely touching the line of sports, the weirder the better. Fortunately, Japan seems to have a monopoly on the stuff we now get to enjoy.
What follows is a brief snapshot of some damn fine programming, complete with obstacle-course mastery and human bowling ball shenanigans.
Now, we do have to note that some of these video clips come via YouTube with scant details in tow. We will try to track down the names of some of these shows. However, if they are missing or listed incorrectly, please do not hesitate to correct us below.
Also, if you know of any Japanese shows we should have included, please chime in as well, because we just can't get enough of this.
