'Scousers in Shibuya'
14 March 2024 3 mins 18s
The Far East stand.
by Andrew MacGregor

It's a good time to be a Japanese Liverpool fan. Takumi Minamino made history when he signed in 2020, followed by Wataru Endo in 2023—two players who made Scousers in Shibuya proud. They should also be flattered by this Expedia commercial, which jumps between Liverpool and Tokyo with considerable verve.

The latter is home to Moby, a podcast host and music lover who watched Liverpool play Independiente in the 1984 Intercontinental Cup. "The team from the city of music came to Japan!" he beams. "From that moment on, it was love."

It's also where the Epilogue pub shows matches—time difference, be damned. Expedia love that Japanese supporters can sample Liverpool at home, but they also want to help fans see Wataru Endo in the flesh. That's where the company's Live football platform comes into play.
