Come join us as we give a tour of our newish Japanese home and show how we furnished it. For example, did you know that a new home doesn’t come with heating, cooling, or most of the lights? Our home is located in Tokyo and in a style I’ve heard called a pencil home (straight up).
While Pokemon is still a big thing in North America, for kids in Japan, it’s been eclipsed by Yo-kai watch. With this half let’s play, half walking tour, see what Yo-Kai watch is like on the Nintendo 3DS and in real life.
In this episode, we visit Azalee Nursery School (Hoikuen) and take a tour of the childcare centre. In Canada, we’d probably call this a mix between a daycare and preschool.
There’s some differences in the way that Valentine’s Day is celebrated in Japan than in Canada, one of them being tomochoko (friend chocolate). Aiko explains what it’s all about.

Coming to Japan from Canada (and the crazy housing market that is Vancouver), I was surprised to find out that the average family could afford a brand new house, even in the city of Tokyo. In this video I explore how this is possible. Thanks to all my patrons who support me making mini-docs like this!
In this episode, join Mae, Aiko, and Shin to see how you get ready for Christmas in both England and Japan! Have a Merry Christmas everyone!
In this episode, Aiko, Shin, and their cousin Shoko make bento boxes for a picnic lunch. Since it was a bit cold outside, they held the picnic inside our home. What’s a picnic lunch like where you’re from?
Come along as I ride the trains of Tokyo from first to last train! And here’s the quick little prologue/preview for the video.
