The first team eliminated will not be going to Elimination Station.  :'(

And Lisa looks like Pheobe from Friends....in a way..lol

Lisa looks like Lisa Kudrow? :funny: And as for the tasks, if they just match the Japanese word, then I do think it wouldn't be that hard.
Matching symbols if you haven't seen them before, specially Kanji, is quite hard
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

"They Thought Godzilla Was Walking Down the Street (Japan/Vietnam)"--Dan performs a Detour in Vietnam in which teams must fill and carry buckets of mud to nearby marked fruit trees in order to receive their next clue during the season premiere of THE AMAZING RACE 15 on Sunday, Sept. 27 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network



Can you guys confirm if the mud thing was an unaired detour or really a route info?

Was the Tokyo Tower edited out, or was the studio we were looking for not the NHK Studios?
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Yeah, some interesting editing. Here's a floor plan of "Foot Town." I don't see a studio on any floor, but something might be jury-rigged I suppose. What you suggested is more likely: the actual filming was at Shibuya NHK. (and despite what Phil said, none of it was in Shinagawa).

Could I request a cap of the airport flight information screen when the teams are leaving Narita? Could help us narrow down a date!

Thanks. The sign does look like "tower studio" (タワースタジオ). Now we have to get them to the middle of Shibuya.

I was SO beyond THRILLLLLLED that Meghan and Cheyne won the first leg!!!! Here's the story that Meghan & Cheyne were actually at Season 14's Finals Casting.  They and my mom & I were in same group for whole week. We knew they would be a pretty strong team and we hoped that we would get on the race together and form an alliance together but they got cut at very last minute before the finals' over :-(   I adore Meghan to death - we got in contact when the Season 14 cast was announced and became really good friends ever since. I'm just SO beyond thrilled that they got to compete on new season!! Root for them!!!
