There used to be boards here for asking questions about the Japanese language or sharing thoughts on Japanese culture. I guess they've been closed. When did that happen, and why? And if they're not coming back, can someone point me to a nice, welcoming board like this one that has similar topics?

Anything that existed for Tourism / International / Culture was merged into General Discussion with the last set of forum changes:

As asharka said, we merged the Tourism/International/Culture forum with General Discussion.

We also added an all-purpose Advice, Info, Recommendations forum.

So, for discussion on Japan and Japanese culture, use General Discussion. For advice regarding travel and language learning, use Advice, Info, Recommendations

BTW, I think that's first avi use of anything from World Fool News that I've seen. That was an odd but fun little show!
