In this video I talk about my first 6 weeks in Japan. I have been living in Fukuoka, Japan and it's going good. I like Japan a lot, but I have had some challenges or difficulties with the place I live.

I talk a little bit about some of the things that I am doing like jiu-jitsu, learning Japanese, how I am living cheaply in Japan and then I talk about some of the things that I like and the flip side of the coin.


The light side of the coin

  • Japan is very clean and orderly
  • People are very polite
  • People work very hard

The dark side of the coin

  • Some people can be pretty rigid
  • Some people will not tell you how they really think so they can seem two faced
  • Many people work way too hard. Some may say it's a workaholic culture.
