A Visit to Nintendo HQ in Kyoto, Japan - Nintendo Minute

  • Published: 14 April 2018
  • Hi Everyone! Today is a special day for many reasons. First, we got to go on a really exciting trip to Kyoto, Japan to visit Nintendo HQ. This is really the trip of a lifetime and we’re so happy to get the chance to share it with all of you. It just so happens that this video also marks 250 Nintendo Minute episodes! We truly love this show and we’re so grateful for all your support. We hope that we can make many more episodes and continue to share all things Nintendo with you. As always, thank you so much for watching and we’ll see you next week!

              Hey, love you guys! My son has made some hard levels on Mario maker. We’re new to this and we’re wondering how he could submit his levels to you for one of your episodes.

                  They said global HQ, does that mean Nintendo works outside of earth, which is why the couldn’t show us anything?!?

                              Thank you soo much. Was nice to see where the magic happens. To me, Nintendo is like Disney, the things that come out of that building is just pure magic. Love my Nintendo Switch soo much. A fantastic traveling companion. I only wish Mario 3D world would get ported over to the Switch.

                                  I never realized that circle around the Nintendo logo was a racetrack.
                                  Also, I expected way more red color at that HQ.

                                            I walked past this place a few weeks ago accidentally, and I could have sworn the i in Nintendo was missing on the building.

                                                      I love nintendo so much. Though I feel the buildings architecture compared to the other companies like sony and microsoft are somewhat less what i expected. Though the company shouldnt be judged just on the architecture so don't hate me. I really love the company and it still is really magical heading into the building.

                                                          cool tour. 4 minutes of lobby and outside grounds footage. an empty room with no furniture. and 10 minutes of playing nintendo switch on planes and trains. at least we got to see you guys eat.

                                                            Interesting video, but the two hosts' Japanese pronunciation is just...bad.
                                                            I work as a localization director and every time I heard them try to pronounce anything it made me cringe.
                                                            Their pronunciation was pretty much always bad, but sometimes it was just flat out wrong.

                                                            Mr. Yabuki's name was pronounced in any one of the following ways, all of which were wrong:
                                                            "Mr. Yabooki"
                                                            "Mr. Yobooki"

                                                            "Hanafuda" was pronounced as "Hana-food-a".

                                                            Also, during one transition, it says "Kansai to Kyoto". Kyoto is in Kansai. Kansai is a region, and Kyoto is one city in that region.

                                                            It might be worth having someone at Nintendo HQ actually review your videos first.

                                                              Well Japanese pronunciation isn't that easy for some people I guess??? LIKE e.g. I'm German and I have some probs with some English words, but I consider Japanese relatively easy, so I think it just depends on the person's ability to learn a new language and how used they are to their mother language (German pronunciation is pretty close to Japanese for example)
