Hajimete no Otsukai, Genius Japanese kids out in the real world
Thanks to Japanese Probe, I’ve just discovered “Hajimete no Otsukai” (First Errand). Its a Japanese TV show that follows kids as they carry out errands for their parents on their own. The kids perform tasks like going to the store buy ingredients for the kitchen, and one even gets on a train alone to deliver clothes. Although these kids are obviously watched carefully by crew members disguised as pedestrians, I am rather impressed and its quite cute to watch.
