The host is American actor Arnold Chun. There are probably many Japanese actors who could manage the role, but for some reason they've flown him over twice (nice gig if you can get it) so he could sport an accent and a quizmaster's outfit.
On a different topic, can anyone help with the signs? With any luck we can pinpoint them.

The sign on the right says Oyodo Kyu-un. It's a delivery company.

The sign on the left says Wakou Biru. Wakou is a Japanese name & biru means building.

Thank goodness there is only one of those in Osaka and it has street view. Here they are.

First post but thought I should contribute as I can read the japanese there!

Found where they are!! It helps when you can read the japanese :hoot:

This is where they are in osaka, 5-2-9 Nakatsu, Kita Ward, Osaka around.

Are they going to make them finally go to the Itsukushima Shrine and then take the train all the way to Osaka? ??? Seems impractical.

I guess Davechel has just gotten off the train when they are fighting? Maybe they are trying to get a cab.

Located in the Seto Inland Sea, ten miles (6 km) southwest of the city of Hiroshima, the small island (12 square miles) of Miyajima is a sacred site of both Shintoism and Buddhism.

So this is where Hiroshima makes its appearance!

So it's gonna be Hiroshima (route info) and Osaka (rb & detour) in this leg? Maybe they'll finally visit the floating torii we're always seeing in the intro caps. Prophet is right though, seems impractical.

I guess they won't be visiting a tea house or do a geisha/maiko related task then. How sad.  :'(

We know they were leading after the RB, so is likely.

If they can prove the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus exist, they can have a redo.
