    I take it you have never been to Misawa? I did 2 6 month deployments there, and when I was there I ran into A LOT of places that didn't let in Americans. Best time of my life and I want to move there. Any recommendations were I should go? Kyoto was going to be my first choice it was so beautiful there.

    I can really relate to that moment in the bar, when you at some point realize, you have been using the foreign language, without even noticing it. It's one of the best feelings when you are living abroad.

    Foreigners are not integrated into Japanese society. This is a fact. Sure, some deluded fools like to pretend they are now At One With Japan, but they're really not, and never will be. It's just the way it is.

    About face masks in Japan: 1. You don't want to get the cold from other people. 2. If you have a cold and you don't want to give it to other people. 3. To prevent hay-fever (cedar trees produce a lot of pollen). Thanks.

    This illustrates to me why I am so into Japan and it's culture. My natural personality matches it pretty well despite my being an American. Aimai is something I know I've embodied a lot in my life out of a feeling that I need to be respectful despite knowing that I'm being too ambiguous. I also relate to the shirt button thing too.

    I think it's ridiculous that they can't just give clear directives on some things. I would tend to interpret those indirect comments as passive aggressive, like your mom trying to make you feel guilty about something until you do what she wants.

    Accidentally stumbled onto your videos and just can't stop watching. 😩😂 The funny thing is I don't even really care about Japan even the slightest 😅 I just find you massively attractive. 😻 The cheekiness, your funny facial expressions , the British accent ❤️🤤... it's all definitely working for me. I wonder... 🤔 are all the girls, watching your videos, just drooling after you? 🤔 I feel like I'm in a win-win-win situation watching you: 1) you're funny and light up the mood 2) great to look at 😉🤤👌 3) I learn something new and feel like a more intelligent and a better person every time I watch a video of yours. So ... I guess ...(are you single? Planning on coming to Estonia anytime soon? 🤔😉😂😁) thanks for being pretty to look at and educational at the same time. 😉😁☺️❤️😘

    I once entered a bar when the owner screeched at me shouting, "Hey, no droids in here". Unfortunately two of my companions had to leave but I stayed for a drink. I was attacked a few moments later though by a couple of yobs with short man syndrome.

    As an American living in sunny Southern California, I am in love with both British and Japanese culture. Your show is now my favorite show on RUclip. You have inspired me to learn Japanese and move to Japan. I actually have an uncle there. If you could visit him in okanowa and feature him in your show and give him a hello for me, it would mean a lot to me. Also.. disregard my username. It was a video game name from "the good Old days"

    Love the vids...autumn is the best and I love the sarcasm and love your friends too...Natsuki and Ryuotaro....sorry about spelling.....im Canadian French first (not quebec) then English then learning Japanese lol. #AskAbroad I've got a master's degree in teaching and was even in administration. Would I have to go still as a teaching assistant or could I be an actual teacher? I saw in 1 video that the jet program you went with a degree but was a support teacher. Just curious with a teaching degree and masters degree are the rules the same? Thanks

    Honestly once you become conversationally fluent in a language it's pretty easy to learn the rest, as you now have a contextual baseline to use. That being said, languages that tend to have a word for every concept can take considerably longer to learn

    I'm confused by your affirmation that the UK workplace communicates in a direct way :p ime, your "your lesson is rubbish" example would be expressed in a rather oblique way such as "hm... this is interesting..." or "oh, that's a great idea" or something along those lines... quite like you mention about Japan

    I have only been in Japan two weeks and I ran into "Sorry, Japanese only" quite a few times. I also saw another variant that said "Only people who can speak Japanese", which I reckon supports Chris's explanation about some of them being nervous about communicating with foreigners. Other reasons I thought of may be that I sometimes was a bit drunk already or that I was doing a tour mostly of SE Asia and my attire would be seen as normal in the warmer countries but in Japan may not have been considered so classy, specifically singlets haha
