The Dream of Living In Japan

Living in Japan is a dream held by many.

Escaping the rat race and starting a new life in an incredible country like Japan is easier now than it has ever been.

In this interview with J-Vlogger JaDan, I share some of my personal insights on escaping, living in Japan and tips on travelling in Japan.

From my first visits to this amazing country, to my lifestyle choice of splitting my time between Japan and the UK, through to my travel plans for this year.



JaDan – Dan In Japan

Dan’s YouTube channel – JaDan – Dan In Japan – chronicles his everyday life in Japan.

Aside from the peek into what he gets up to, via his ‘day in the life’ style videos, he offers tips for those looking to live in Japan, videos about Japanese language, travel VLOGs and his love of (mainly J-punk) music.

I recommend subscribing – I do!

Warning! Language wise, not all of Dan’s content is safe for work or young ones.

Dan and I first met in November last year and we instantly hit it off. Which I guess was no surprise, since I was already a fan of his entertaining channel. So I’m delighted to now feature on it.
