'Queer Eye' heads to Japan for four international makeovers
outinperth.com -- Oct 11
The Fab Five are heading to Japan for another special mini-season outside of their home country.

Last year Antoni, Karamo, Tan, Bobby and Jonathan came to Yass, Australia for the first Queer Eye episode outside of the US – and this time they’re heading to the Pacific Rim for We’re In Japan!

The quintet will be joined by model Kiko Mizuhara and comedian Naomi Watanabe, who will serve as the team’s cultural advisors and translators during their visit.

“Queer Eye has become a global phenomenon once again and the Fab Five are truly the ambassadors of self-care and compassion that the world needs now more than ever,” creator David Collins said.

“Filming in Japan is a wonderful opportunity for us to work with four deserving heroes that will help showcase the incredible traditions and customs of their country.”

The five bodies have yet to be identified but police say the family occupying the house in Gojo is currently unaccounted for. Takayuki Teranishi, 32, an employee of a nearby welfare facility, his 33-year-old wife and their three sons, aged 2, 6 and 8, moved in last year. The bodies were discovered in the same room on the second floor after a neighbor reported smoke around 10:05 a.m. to the local fire department, officials at the department said. The incident comes as schools in many parts of Japan, including Nara, remain closed and some businesses implement telework in line with government efforts to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic in Japan.
