Description

What if someone close to you just … vanished one day? That happens to tens of thousands of families a year in Japan, and it happened to Jake Adelstein, too, back in 2018 — when his accountant disappeared, just before tax day. Adelstein, the author of Tokyo Vice, and co-host Shoko Plambeck go in search of that missing accountant, and take us on a journey into the fascinating and bizarre world of Japan’s johatsu, or “evaporated” people. A Campside Media & Sony Music Entertainment production. Want the full story? Unlock all episodes of The Evaporated: Gone with the Gods ad-free right now by subscribing to The Binge – All Episodes.
