Please offer our newest journalist a warm welcome!

Two Kyodo News reporters -- Yamaguchi-san and Peter -- ask Nakanishi-san, who recently joined the news agency's English-language service section after two years at the Utsunomiya bureau, about the differences between Japanese and English articles. Listen as they discuss what points are emphasized depending on the language, and the challenges of translating certain phrases for English language users.
