So 2015 has only just begun and already Tokyo Fox is looking back!! For about five years now there have been exactly ten new posts on here each and every month and these are the ten from 2014 which got the most hits. The ‘TF Top 10……Music Videos Filmed In Japan‘ article was by far and away the most popular thing to appear last year but I have excluded that and the other top 10 lists from entry in this feature. Of course those entries from earlier in the year had more time to accumulate hits which may explain why so much of the top 10 is from the first half of 2014. Oh well!
1. The Hairy Bikers Asian Adventure – South To Kyoto
This was the 5th episode in the series and thanks to its repeats on the BBC, it continues to bring in the hits. More details here.
2. Leicester City Shop In Bangkok Airport!
There are thousands of Foxes fans and no doubt enough of them were curious enough to search for information about this. More details here.
3. Tokyo Daytripper: Gojira-Koen (Godzilla Park).
The radioactive lizard was very much on the minds of people in 2014 thanks to the latest incarnation being released in the Summer and I guess news of this park stood out amongst all the other Godzilla-related stuff. More details here.
4. On The Trail Of John Rain (雨) Part VI.
Author Barry Eisler tweeted this link to his thousands of followers guaranteeing it to get an incredible amount of hits back in June. More details here.
5. The Charlotte Crosby Experience – The Furisode-San Of Tokyo.
Love or hate reality-star Charlotte, she has many fans which is surely the only reason this programme on such a minor channel made the list. More details here.
6. Cycling The Wolverine Tokyo Trail…In One Day.
This was posted just ahead of the latest X-Men film release and obviously hit a note with people wondering about the Wolverine’s journey around Japan in the previous movie. More details here.
7. Tokyo Daytripper: Kameido Tenjin Shrine Wisteria Festival.
Before attending this festival I couldn’t really find anything online (in English) about it so I jumped on that opportunity and it worked out well. More details here.
8. World’s Busiest Train Station: Shinjuku.
Another TV programme about Japan to make the top ten. Given that I reviewed it nine months after it aired it’s a little surprising that a few thousand people were interested enough to seek out info on this Channel 5 show. More details here.
9. Walking From Garden To Garden In Komagome.
Probably the most surprising inclusion to be honest. Again, there’s not too much about this on the net in English so proof maybe that if you put something fairly original out there then some people will read it! More details here.
10. C*ck A Load Of This – Kanamara Matsuri 2014.
What better way to round off this list than with this quirky festival which continues to grow and attract attention from all around the world. More details here.
