Takeshi's Castle

I was surprised at knowing Japanese TV show is (was ?) on air in Argentina and Spain. Do you know "Takeshi's Castle" ? and have your watched it ? "Takeshi" is Takeshi Kitano, Japanese comedian and he is famous as a movie director in the world.
The program "Takeshi's Castle" was on air in Japan about 20 years before. It was very interesting and I have watched it. Ordinary people can participate in games of the show. It was a popular TV program.
There is a similar TV show and it was a special show in a year. This is Sasuke and it is on air in some other countries.
I like other program. The title is "Kinniku Banzuke" . Some athletes , models or actors challenge some original games in the show and the one who gets best score in total becomes No.1 athletes. I like a game "monster box". Monster box calls "Tobibako" in Japanese. Tobibako is one of gymnastics for students. I have done it when I was a student. As I explain simply, we jump on the springboard and stride over the boxes. Moster box is a game that how many boxes we can stride. World record is 23 boxes ( 3m 06ch.)

I am glad that other countries people enjoy these programs.
