Hi!
My name is Micaela Braithwaite.  I was born in Canada, but I came to Japan as a highschool exchange student at the age of 17,  and I’ve been building a life here ever since. I live on the southern island of “Kyushu”, in a lovely port city called “Fukuoka”. The beaches are nice,  the people are friendly, and the food is great. It’s a great place to relax and get away from the hectic buzz of Tokyo, where I am often working.

I started working for an entertainment company called Yoshida Masaki Jimusho in the summer of 2012, following my graduation from Fukuoka School of Music, a music and entertainment college here in Fukuoka. Throughout this past year I’ve been exposed many new experiences which have helped me form a clearer vision of who I am, and what I aspire to be.

I run a popular channel on Youtube with 130,000 subscribers and over 21 million hits. I’m fortunate enough to have had big name brands like  JVC, PUMA, LG and NESTLE sponsor some of my work. I also work, from time to time, with the Canadian Tourism Commission to create content and promote travel between Japan and Canada–a role that I thoroughly enjoy and cherish.

As a general hobby, I operate this blog bilingually in hopes that language learners like myself can gain something extra from reading it. In addition to this, my two friends and I also operate a bilingual Youtube Channel called, “Afternoonの昼下がり“, which features bi-monthly situational skits in both English & Japanese. We enjoy it, and luckily 5,000+ others do too.

Screen Shot 2013-06-15 at 8.30.37 PM
Aside from what I do independently, I do appear on TV occasionally as well. As much as I enjoy it,  I do not feel as though this is my main platform. The content that I am the most proud of appears online. I love having total control over an image or a product that I create.

It is partly due to the nature of the industry that I work in, that my direction, interests and ambitions are in perpetual motion.  I’m always looking to further my skills, and try something new, and therefore, my content, style and presentation are always changing as well.

Admittedly, as a foreign-born “alien” to Japan, I do find it tricky trying to fit in with a Japanese society, and there are days that are better than others. If I’m certain of anything, though, it’s that being here has helped me develop a strict work ethic and a spirit that could not have been obtained in Canada.

Every experience is a valuable one, and I’m taking it all in stride as I navigate through foreign waters with ambition and loads of やる気。

よろしくお願いします♫

    ちなみに、自分も福岡に住んでおり、福岡市に住んでいます。
    facebookに友達申請をしたので、ぜひカナダのことなどを教えてください

  9. Hi, I accidentally found your YouTube video while I was searching about something else. There are many Gaijins in Japan uploading YouTube videos, but what I found special about you is that I was born/raised in Fukuoka, too(Now, I’m Canadian since last year) :-)

    I’ve only lived in Quebec and haven’t really visited to anywhere else outside of Quebec except Ottawa and Toronto, but B.C. looks like a nice place, too(and everyone is speaking ENGLISH!!! wow!!!) from what I saw in your video.

    Anyway, I sent you a friend req. on facebook, so add me if you would like :-)

    Ciao Ciao

  19. Hi, I’m from Taiwan, and I’ve become a new audience member of your Youtube channel a few days ago.

    I’ve learnt Japanese for about 2 years but still at a so-so level. Kind of envy you guys that can live in Japan. The best way to learn a language is to live in that country by oneself.

    I decided to learn Japanese with your Youtube videos. It’s a good way to enhance my listening comprehension ability of both Japanese and English, and the best is they’re all free of charge. :)

    By the way, I found a misspelling in your self-introduction in the Japanese part. “Music” should be 「ミュージック」, not 「ミューシック」.

    Wish you a good day

  20. こんにちは、ミカエラさん。
    アメリカからですが日本人です。
    異国にいる日本人の僕が、日本にいるカナダ人のブログを楽しませてもらっているのは少し不思議な感じがします。
    母国語でない言語を自在に操るミカエラさんを見ると、まだまだ英語で苦労させられる僕にとっては、大きな励みになります。

    日本を楽しんで下さいね。

  21. That is a really nice picture of you. I listen to your vlog for a long time. And I like it.
    I hope you will achieve all your goals in life.

    I was surprised at your Japanese.

  27. Hi!

    I just saw your video on YouTube, and I was surprised by how you speak in Japanese very fluently.
    I’m Japanese myself, but I am currently studying in Kamloops, B.C. as an international student. I almost flipped out when I realized that you were born in Kamloops. lol

    I’m so jealous you are in Japan. I love Japan. Of course I love Kamloops too, but nothing can beat your home town right?

    Well, I wish you a successful journey in Japan, and maybe see you sometime:d

  34. Hi, I found you on Yahoo! Japan web site, which was top page today!, and you were the one of movie topics that recently checked by many people :) I was so surprised your Japanese speaking! How fluent it is!! I have been learning english and living in Canada for 1 year and half, but I still feel tough to speak it fluently! Anyway, what I wanted to say is that I am actually living in B.C.! Have you ever hard about Salt Spring Island( a freaking boring island haha), yeah that is my little island! I have been Vancouver, of course, was my favorite city by now:) Also, some of my friends are living in Kamloops!

  36. ユーチューブで拝見させていただいて日本語の上手さにびっくりしました。プロフィールを拝見してKamloops出身だということで、私も去年の夏に1か月Kamloopsに滞在してました。kamloopsという共通点に思わずテンションがあがってしまいました。
    今後悔しているのはpurdy’sチョコレートをもっと買いだめして日本に帰ってくるべきだということです!

  37. Hello Micaera
    I just saw your you tube about “souvenior” from Japan.
    I used to lived in Kentucky, and always bring “Home pie”, “Hi Chu” and coke flaver candy.
    I always wonder what is good for my friend there, and as long as I know, “Home pie” is best.

    When I return to Japan, I was asked my sons to purchase “Chips Ahoy!”,”Goldfish” and “Rollups rolls”….

    Anyway, it was good to seeing your web site to know what is intereting in.

    Thanks

  38. こんにちは、Mikaera!

  42. こんにちは!
    YouTubeからこちらを拝見させていただきました。
    昨年交換留学生の受け入れをして、日本に興味のある外国の方に興味をもちました。
    ブログも楽しみにしています。
    またお邪魔させていただきますね(^_-)-☆

  43. 偶然YOUTUBE見ました。日本語すごくうまいですね☆
    私は福岡出身でカナダのバンクーバーに住んでいます。
    日本からカナダのお土産は日本食、特にマヨネーズ、お好み焼きソースなどこちらで買うと高いので。あと、お菓子もたくさん買ってきます。
    逆にカナダから日本に買っていくものはオーガニックの食品や、アイスワイン日本で買うと高いスパイスなどです。

  44. I am taking Japanese at my high school, and a couple of months ago a college from tokyo (TUJ, Temple University of Japan) came. It seems so much fun! I was a little nervous but then I saw the video that you made called HOW TO GET TO JAPAN, it inspired me. Thank you, I will try my best to get to where I want to be. Please do me a favor and stay awesome!

  45. Hi Micaela :3 One of my friends directed me to your blog while we were talking about living in Japan and I found it really inspiring. I don’t know if you’ve already answered this or not, and if so I’m sorry, but how exactly do you go about moving and living in Japan? I’ve always wanted to visit, but I have no idea how to start. I’m hoping to even live there one day. Do you know anything about getting a work visa in Japan? Can you only apply for one up till a certain age?

  46. Hi Micaela,
    Just wanted to let you know that I’ve used a few of your Youtube videos in the Japanese classes I’ve recently started to teach at an Australian high school. My students are all beginners around 11-13 years old, and I’ve watched their faces as they become captivated by you speaking in Japanese. (It was a great coincidence that you used some of the phrases we’d practiced like ありがとう/おめでとうございます). The other great thing about your videos is that the students can instantly see a benefit of learning Japanese. I’m glad I stumbled on your site.
    Thanks, and keep up the good work please.
    Kevin

  47. Hello!
    I just wanted to say that you inspired me in a way. I’m currently trying to move to Japan to attend 関西外国語大学 as soon as possible. It’s nice to see someone living the same dream I have. It makes it seem all the more possible.

    Best of luck to you and everything you wish to accomplish! I hope someday we can be friends!

  48. Hi :)
    I don’t know if you’re reading this, buried under all the other lovely comments, but I had to comment myself. I was watching ‘How To Speak Fluent Japanese Without Saying A Word’ when I saw one of your videos on the side.
    I love your blog, I love your hair, I love the fact that your life reminds me of drinking cold milk because it’s so yummy and refreshing.
    Have a great year and good luck :)
    sakR9~

  49. Mikaela♪

    YOUTUBEで偶然見ました。
    私は福岡出身で、いまワーキングホリデーでVancouverに住んでいます。カナダに来てもうすぐ6ヶ月ですが、ミカエラと違い、なかなか英語力がつきません・・・どうしたらいい?
    ドォーモが久しぶりに見れて、懐かしかったです :)

  50. Hi Micaela. Just discovered your blog while doing some research for the radio station I work for. The topic of my research – the horrible tsunami and the heartbreaking misery of the affected people – is certainly a sad coincidence, but still I don’t want to miss telling you that your blog really is a wonderful way to understand Japan. It is one of the best blogs I have found in the internet in a long time. To me as a European, you bring Japan closer and let me understand the exceptional strength of its people better than anyone else so far except my good friend Kazumi who I studied with. But she was in Sendai before the earthquake, and I haven’t been able to contact her since then. I am confident, though, that everything will be fine. Anyway, keep up this wonderful blog, even in these hard times. Keep care, best wishes, Michael from Munich.

  51. はじめまして!you tubeから飛んできました!
    21歳のランです☆
    私は小さい頃から英語に興味があり海外旅行や去年1年はオーストラリアに滞在してました!
    東京に戻ってきた今、スピーキング力は落ちてしまうと思いますが、リスニング力だけでも落ちないように海外で買ってきた洋画の英語字幕をみながら日々勉強して、来年の留学に向けて勉強しています☆
    you tubeにupしていた日常会話の日本語と英語の違い(特にスラッと)は「へぇ~!!!」ととても勉強になりました。
    Micaeraさんが東京在住だったら一緒に遊んだりガールズトークしたりできるかなと思ったんですけど。。。
    でもこれからも色々教えて下さい★

  52. hey Micaela
    i just recently started watchin you on youtube and wanted to say that was awesome and your right. it was hard trying to figure out what to do and didn’t have much inspiration… but after hearing what you were doing i feel i can do the same …just saying thanks and hopefully i can visit Japan whenever i get free time it looks like so miuch funnn any good places you suggest to visit??

  53. I watched your YouTube message for the Japanese people who suffered from earthquake and tsunamis. Thank you very much for caring about us.

    I posted your message in my website (Sorry for doing it without your prior permission^^;). Please come to see http://www.sanctio.jp/archives/3118.

    Thank you^^

  54. Hello Micaela,
    I don’t know whether I should post this in English or Japanese as I’m a student from Japan studying in the UK and it feels refreshing to hear about the someone who has gone to Japan to study. I think it was the video about スラットしている which was interesting as I would have never thought about what Japanese could sound like!
    Keep it up as people enjoy watching the videos!

  55. I just want to let you know that you’re pretty much living my dream…kinda. I really want to be able to live in Japan and become a manga artist. However….I know it’s not going to be easy. Hearing your stories fill me with hope, and it makes me happy to know that there’s a chance I can achieve my dream.

    I’ve thought about teaching English to start off….but in reality I really don’t want to go to school in the U.S. I understand you went to a music school after graduating NILS. Do you think there are any good art schools over there that don’t cost an arm and a leg?

  56. こんにちは~
    私は長年ハワイに住んでいる(pre)大学生です。
    日本には実は小さいころにしか住んだことがないけど、来年から東京の大学に行くことになりました。
    あなたのYoutubeチャンネルを見て、少しでも良いから日本はどんなところだったか、ちょっと勉強しています!
    I LOVE how you posted videos about things that ALWAYS caught my attention!
    Especially the Engrish shirts!
    Thanks to the writings on those shirts, I have to put some shirts back sometimes… T^T
    I really hope that you keep posting more awesome, random, and funny videos x)
    And maybe one day, a video of you singing? ^^
    I’m sure you’ll become a wonderful artist!
    And when that happens, I’ll make sure to buy your album!
    (You should also go and do a live in Tokyo (; )
    Aloha~ (hehe I don’t feel local enough to say that…)
    かざねより。

  57. 初めまして!14歳です。僕は最近ミカエラさんのことを、知りました!!
    僕は、カナダ人、アメリカ人が大好です。ユーモアがありますよね?

    ちなみに、私は今大学生です。
    micaelaさんはカナダ出身なんですね!!実は私、カナダに留学するのが夢なんです。
    だから、そのために今がんばって英語を勉強しています。(特に発音に苦労してます・・・)

    外国人の方から見た日本人ってどんなかんじですか??知りたいです!(^w^)
    あと、カナダについていろいろと教えてください!

  60. hi Taqです。 たまたまTshirtのビデオみてMicaelaのブログにきました。
    ヨロシク halo (∩´∀`@)⊃
    ところでprofileのところのsentenceで翻訳されてにないこの
    ~ media, and to get a dog.ってexactlyに犬欲しいって意味??
    それともスラングとかidiom?
    ちょー気になるので教えてください

  61. I watched your video about T-shirts on which there is weird english. I’ve been feeling the same thing in Toronto because I am japanese and studying english. I quite often see those people who have tattoo written by strange japanese words. Actually, my landlady is gonna get tattoo in japanese so she asked me if the words she checked up by herself were right or not. There were some mistakes so I corrected them. By the way, she is gonna get these words; brave(勇気), passion(情熱), truth(真実or誠実).Such beautiful words they are.

  70. こんにちは。youtubeから来ました。
    九州の生活を楽しんでいるみたいで、日本人としてうれしいです:)

    Im living in tohoku area due to my hubby’s business, although i had never been here before, :o
    but its kinda/pretty much different from the west part of Japan.
    including the local people…!

    もしチャンスがあれば東北も来てみてください。
    九州の暖かい気候・風土とは違った北国の日本の良さがあります。

    keep making fun videos!

  72. Hey honey, by the way, you are a ROCK STAR! You are a real inspiration for me and my plans/dreams/goal to travel and work in Japan. I am a Canadian as well and currently trying to become an English teacher. I watched all your youtube videos and I read your blog, you are a true artist in my eyes. Thank you for all your posts and for your sugoi videos! By the way, I’ve seen pictures of you and this random guy… is he your boyfriend? hahaha, just wondering because you two look so cute together! I am going to try my best to get to Japan, I have loved this country every since I was little. I will stay motivated each step of the way and I won’t give up no matter what (also thanks to you)! God bless, and I hope you live the rest of your life happy and healthy… that’s all that matters!

  73.  どうもはじめまして,今日たまたまyoutubeであなたのビデオを見つけました。とても感動しました。勇気をもらった気がします。そこで、実は1つ気になった事があります。それはなんで九州を選んだのかな〜と思って?!っというのは、ほとんどの海外の人は、日本に行くなら東京エリアもしくは京都を選ぶと思います。もし差し支えなければ教えて下さい。
    ちなみに私福岡出身です。今は理由があってバンクーバーに3年ほど住んでます。
     VANCOUVERからあなたのご活躍楽しみにしています!頑張って下さい!!

  75. 【Power-Spots in Kyushu:series 1 is Kashii-shrine(香椎宮)】

    Hi!! Michaela Chan
    From Today,I begins a series to introduce the Power-Spots in Kyushu.

      (Mikaera:Don’t begin ! You’re selfish!)
    I hope that your boyfriend Ryuhei is interested in Japanese ancient
    history and the Power-Spots.
      (Mikaera:I don’t know about Ryuhei, but I’m not interested in such things.)
    Kashii-Shinto-Shrine is located in Higashi-ku, Fukuoka.
    Shinto(神道) is oldest religion in Japane. In somehow it is similar to Native American beliefs.
    In Shinto beliefs, God exist everywhere in nature.
    In a mountains, rocks, rivers, trees, birds, animals and peoples.
      (Mikaera:I became interested in only a little.)

    Special mention about Kashi-shrine is eternal youth water(anti-ageing-water:不老水).
      (Mikaera:Anti-ageing-water!!.)
    Once upon a time there was the legendary old man called TakenouchinoSukune(武内宿禰).
    He served the TENNOU(天皇) of five generations of Keikou(景行),Seimu(成務),Chuai(仲哀),
    Ohjin(応神)and Nintoku(仁徳) as a minister.
    Because he drank eternal youth water, he lived for about 300 years from about 100 in the Christian era.
      (Mikaera:Wow!! Awesome!!.)
    The eternal youth water still springs out how near Kashii shrine. Please drink with dragon-flat(竜平).

      (Mikaera:amazing!! Dragon-flat! take me there.)

  76. 【Spiritual-Power-Spots in Kyushu:series 2 is Munakata shrine(宗像大社)】

    Hi!! Michaela_chan.Are not you tired ?
    Please take care of yourself.(お疲れ様んさ束さ。)

    This is a 2’nd description of the Power-Spots series.
    Munakata shrine is located in Munakata city, Fukuoka.

    Special mention about Munakata shrine is Three-Systers-God.(宗像三女神)
    Three systers are Tagori-Princess(田心姫) enshrined in the Okinoshima-island, (沖ノ島)
    Tagitsu-Princess(湍津姫) enshrined in the chikuzen-ooshima-island,(筑前大島)
    and Ikichishima-Princess(市杵嶋姫) enshrined in the Tajima.(宗像市田島)

    They are the God watching security of the marine traffic of Genkai-Nada leading
    to the Korean-Peninsula.
    In addition, they are also God of the ground transportation, and the lucky charm
    of this Shinto shrine is a required item for the car driver.

    I saw Bobbyjudo’s blog.
    Congratulations Bobbyjudo and Yuri_san.

  100. youtubeのLady GaGaのedge of gloryを見て、初めてミカエラさんの事を知りました。とても歌がうまいなぁと感じすごい興味を持ちました。また、調べていると福岡のスクールミュージックに留学?しているらしくすごいなぁって感心?いや、尊敬しました。(笑)自分のやりたい事に突き進む。すごい勇気のいる事だと思います。
    いろいろ、ミカエラさんについてもっと知りたいので、もっとブログやyoutubeを更新してほしいです。
    単純にどのような音楽が好きなのか?なぜ福岡のスクールミュージックなのか?(すでに、どこかで紹介していたらすみませんm(_ _)m)などなど色々気になります。

    私は今東京で普通に仕事をしている人間ですが音楽が大好きです。もっと、Lady GaGaのedge of gloryとか色々見てみたい!!

  101. Hi Ms. Mikaera

    Nice to see you. my name is Kaz.
    I love your movies and blogs. I’m learning English, but it’s tough, lol
    Your movie is very good to study English, because we can hear clear and real Canadian English, and first of all it’s funtastic!!!

    I hope you continue to make this programs.
    And you should be an English teacher in NHK before to be a talent like sherry.

    Sincerely

  102. すげえなあ あなたは こんなに日本語が上手なんて夢まで見られないんださ、あること聞いていい? 日本にいつ来たか教えてください

  103. 始めましてミカエラさん。突然ですいませんが今日カナダで南京大虐殺の嘘が広められている事を知り驚きました。
    ミカエラさん、中国人と韓国人は嘘吐きです。北朝鮮と合わせて危険な国です。どうか良く調べて本国の人に騙されないよう教えてあげて下さい。
    彼らと関わる事はカナダにとっていい事など一つもないのですから。
    美しいカナダの自然を略奪されてから破壊されても遅いんですよ。

  109. 今自分は17歳の男です。
    しかし、今は学校を辞めて英語を学ぶために海外に留学しています。
    自分は最近毎日ミカエラさんの動画を何回も同じ物を見てリスニングの勉強をしています。
    ミカエラさんは凄いと思います。尊敬します。
    なぜなら家族を離れて日本に来て生活してるからです。
    カナダの友達と会えなくて辛くないですか?
    日本の文化に違和感を感じませんか?
    自分は今友達に会いたくて仕方ありません。
    また、今住んでいる国の文化にもなれません。
    学校が9月からなので学校も行ってなくて友だちもできず、気持ちが参ってしまっています。
    どのようにして乗り越えましたか? または、特にそれはそうと割りきりましたか?
    メールしていただけたらとおもいます。

    I am 17years old boy.
    I left the school then I am studying abroad to learn English .
    Recently, I watch your movie again and again everyday to grow my listening ability.
    I respect you.
    Because you are living Japan without family.
    Aren’t you hard that you can’t meet your friends ?
    Don’t you feel anything to different culture?
    But I quite want to meet with my friends of Japan and I am not accustomed to live in here.
    What’s more, I can’t get a friend because school starts from September.
    So I am very sad and lonely.
    Then I have a question.
    How did you get over your difficulties?

    I am sorry that there are a lot of mistakes in these sentences probably.

    I am looking forward to your reply.

    Best regards.

    from Tomohiro Mikuriya

  116. Hi Micaela,
    I have been trying to contact you, but I don’t seem to be getting through. I am a photographer/journalist from England and I am planning an overland adventure from London to Japan which will produce a book and a vlog. I am looking for some help to get an insight view of Japan and I was hoping for you to get involved. If you are interested please get in touch and we’ll take it from there.
    Thanks,
    Mike

    I heard about you from one of your fans at Hollywood North, in Vancouver. I am also from Kamloops, well, Pritchard, and seem to relate to you in a lot of ways, I bet you sing a wicked Utada Hikaru or Kiroro… If your ever in Vancouver, lets go to Karaoke together! I love the way you build so many bridges in what you do, you are a fine ambassador for Canada.

  123. I watched your movie about Miyajima, In Hiroshima in YouTube and I think it is wonderful. Oh… My age is over 50… But I have many younger friends. I think your goal is to become a famous actor or singer in Japan..Is it right? oh I live in Nishinomiya, where there is the Koshien baseball stadium, with my family including my wife and 2 sons.
    Take care, Takami

  132. Hi There,

    I have decided to study Japanese and Linguistics at university (in the UK)… I was wondering if you would have done the learning part any differently? (I’m still int he applying to the course stage though). Are there any disavantages to having learnt the language?

  133. Hi
    I’m really interested in seeing a video on mixed cocktails and what they are like in Japan and what sort of cocktail bars are in the Fukuoka prefecture. I”m an amateur bartender in NZ and i would like to shift to Fukuoka prefecture and continue cocktail bartending there and take my skills and knowledge there and open a Kiwi Cocktail bar. any videos you could make would be amazingly appreciated. also feel free to comment on my Facebook profile

  137. いろいろ日本のことを紹介していただきありがとうございます。
    でも日本、危ないよ。放射能撒き散らしたし。

    今さら?って思うかもしれないけど私が親なら『カナダに帰ってこい!』って言うけどなぁ(-_-)

  138. ネスレの動画、楽しいですね。
    クリスマスには間に合わないかもしれませんが、
    3.11の被災地の子供たちに、kitkatなどのネスレの製品をとどけて頂けないですか?
    ミニコンサートや英語教室などもいいですね。
    お友達のKatさんは、被災地をおとずれてようちえんでミニコンサートをやったり
    していますよ。

    自分のサイトにも紹介させて貰いました。

  142. 初めて、ミカエラさんのYoutubeを見てから
    ずっと繰り返し見てます。日本での生活を海外へ発信し
    夢を追いかけている姿勢に感動しました。
    私も今は海外に住んでいますが、そこまでの余裕もないので
    ただひたすらに感動してます。英語の教材としても見ることが多いので
    アップロードいつも期待してます。 がんばって下さい。
    あ、ツイッターもフォローさせてもらいます。

    僕も祖母の家で飼っていてついつい時間を忘れて遊んでしまいます…笑

    次のブログUP、YouTube楽しみにしてます✨

  144. Hi Micaela,
    I found you on Youtube when I was looking at videos about Japanese bread commented by other gaijins in Japan. By the way, Is okay to say gaijin? I don’t even know if I offend non-Japanese people who live in Japan by saying that… I am sorry if it is not ok. I myself live in New York since 2000. So I am a gaijin here.
    I just want to tell you how impressed I was with your Japanese skill. I know it is not easy to learn new language. Can you write Kanji as well? I can’t anymore. I seriously forgot most of Kanji! It is embarrassing… :(
    I was born in Oita and lived in Fukuoka (near 博多駅) for about a year. I loved Fukuoka. I remember great food (miss ramen!) and warn hearted people. I tried to sound like 博多っ子and failed miserably. I lived there in 1997. I am sure things have changed a lot since I left. Yatai, Canal City, Tenjin and Nakasu… miss them!
    Anyways, I am your fan. I like what you do on YouTube, Facebook and your blog. I like hearing your opinions about Japanese culture very much although I found your videos to be bias. You like Japan a little too much? Maybe you are being nice on videos. Very funny and informative for sure though! Again I am your fan and will be looking forward to your updates!
    Thanks!

  145. ich esse gern natto, du auch . wir sind natto mitglieder. bitte , kommst du yu mir un natto zusammenn essen. von der schweiz. liebe Grüsse. max.

  161. Hello Micaela, I watched 1 of your video’s “Jobs in Japan for students”. I plan to head over to Japan in the near future to explore the place and look into the countries popular culture’s and traditions. I hold a TESOL (Teach English to speakers of other Languages) certificate, finished school but did not attend a university. I am not fluent in the Japanese language but I do know enough to to get around, I know this because i stayed there for two weeks with my school 2 years ago =D.

    anyways…

    I am a 20 year old Male, hard working, pretty outgoing and possesses multiple talents. I believe i hold the resolve to soldier through any job, I’m also a professional when it comes to saving money. You said in the video that “If you have the balls to move to the other side of the world you’ll probably be capable of taking care of your self”. I know i am capable to taking care of myself well i hope i am…. also, i am pretty shit scared about living by myself for the first time in a completely different country, not knowing anyone or anything about the place.

    anyways i’ve got a ton of questions to ask, i’m not sure if your supposed to email me or something, cause i can’t find your email address.

    and

    thanks for reading =D
