Due to major changes to the Tokyo Powder website, this blog is now dedicated to the KONA RADIO. I really wanted to change the address to podcast.tokyopowder.com, but it would have been too difficult to link the existing data, so I had to compromise.
From now on, we will only post updates of KONA RADIO episodes on this blog. For other announcements, etc., please visit our new website or click on “NEWS” in the upper right corner of this blog.
I messed around last night and I’m not sure if all the past podcasts can be heard properly. If you notice anything, please DM me on twitter, email@example.com
Although there has been a long gap in KONA RADIO since Covid-19, we will continue to work as if we were crawling on the ground, so please keep up the good work. Thank you for your continued support. (Mitsuo)
Kona Radio is a well-known English conversation resource. For this episode, Vitaly-sensei went back to basics and chose an orthodox theme. He brought about 15 items as essentials for climbing, but due to time constraints, we have five this time!
Since last year, Tokyo Powdered Foods has been developing a nutritional food product mainly based on protein, which is scheduled to be released this spring or summer. You may be thinking Why?, but we have our own reasons and thoughts, which we have learned from our own failures.
Importance of Protein
“My nails break easily,” “I’m the type of person who has trouble building muscle…” When my skins split, it takes a long time to heal.” “I can do the moves, but I don’t feel like I’m getting stronger…” I am sure you have heard these conversations or can think of your own experiences. In many cases, these are signs of protein deficiency.
KONA Radio, Episode 83 is a chat session between the factory manager, the landlord, and Hakase, and we received a lot of letters from Twitter and e-mails. Among other things, we will send you a story about muscles.
Happy New Year to all KONA RADIO listeners! This is Hakase. In episode 82, we talk about everyone’s favorite topic. Yes, climbing shoes. We welcomed Mr. Tachibanazono-san, who is involved in the development of Unparallel shoes, and talked about various topics related to climbing shoes, including the new Souped UP shoes and shoe demos, while looking back on the year 2022.
If you feel that your current shoes are not right for you, or you are not sure about your size, or if you have any other shoe problems, this is a must listen. (from around 1:15:00)
We invited Daisuke Kasahara, aka DK, as our guest for the first time in 4 years, since 2017. We hope you enjoy this episode where we chat about route sets, holds, and funny stories with DK, who is now bursting with happiness after overcoming knee surgery last year.
Thank you for your patience. We have decided to re-release the Garage and High Garage due to many climbers’ requests. Shipment will start around March 5th.
It has been about a year and a half since we stopped selling it. It has been a long and hard road, but we were able to change the ingredients and manufacturing process to improve the friction effect and make it last even longer than the original model.
THE WATER SEPARATION
The original model of the High Garage was defective due to a large amount of water separating from the surface, but when the water separation was removed, the unique texture was lost, which was a very annoying problem.
This is Ep. 79 of KONA Radio with Mr. Tajima (@tajippei), owner of a well-established climbing gym in Kurume City, Fukuoka Prefecture and a researcher for Tokyo Powder.
Tajippei, who only climbs rocks, and Hakase, who stays in the office and takes care of his hobbies by the minute, were afraid that we hadn’t gained any interesting stories to talk about since last year, so we asked our followers on Twitter for some questions.
