We’re leaving Japan soon, but I have a lot of work to do related to Japan over the next couple weeks. I’ve recorded a lot of video, and there will be videos uploaded to YouTube for almost every day we’ve been here in Japan. But that’s not all. There are some other things I have planned (not related to work, that is):
- Edit and upload all Japan vlogs.
- Catch up on comments on this blog.
- Star a Star Trek blog for my episode reviews.
- Write and record science videos.
- Resume the Read the World series.
- Resume Worldbuilding blog posts and videos.
- And play SimCity 4. Just because I really want to.
There are a lot of other things to do, but these are the big things. I probably forgot some things, though. They’ll come to mind!
Canada, here we come!
I just wanted to give you an update on things. We’ve been in Japan for three full days now, and our main objective has been completed (this sounds like a video game). We have six more full days here, including today.
Our first couple days were mostly just shopping, staying at the house, and visiting family. Our third day was our reason for coming, and that was yesterday. It was a very solemn moment, but gave me some big insights into Japanese and Buddhist culture. It was very interesting to be involved, but I was also a bit nervous about it, because I didn’t want to do anything wrong. I’ve recorded video for all of the days we’ve been here so far, though one video covers two days. I’ll try edit and upload as soon as I can, though my time with my computer is limited.
The next few days involve going to a few different places, mainly Tokyo and Yokohama. We’ll be visiting friends and former coworkers. We’ll also be spending tomorrow night in Yokohama and a couple nights later in the Tsukiji area of Tokyo, which is famous for its fish market, and of course, sushi.
I’ll update you when I can, upload videos when I can. Things should be back to normal next weekend.
I’d just like to let everyone know that for the next couple weeks, regular posting will not be happening. I’ll be in Japan, and I have no idea if I’ll be able to make any blog posts. But I will be trying to post videos, and if I’m able to, I’ll post them here on the blog. If I can’t, you’ll know why I’ve disappeared.
I’m going to try to do a vlog about our trip, and here is the first video.
I hope to post sometimes, so keep an eye out for blog posts and videos! If you want to keep up on my travels, then please subscribe to my channel.
It’s been a long time since I’ve worked on this, but I’ve finally resumed working on A Taste of Japan. It’s a video series that I started last year, and then intended on doing for every place that I went with my sister when she visited us in Japan. However, I only did six videos, got to a video that turned out to have many parts to be edited together, and stopped.
Well, that intimidating video has been done. It wasn’t actually difficult to do! I enjoyed editing the video! I posted it on my main channel, and here it is:
I absolutely love Enoshima. It’s a place I’ve been to a few times, though most of the time, I stayed on the mainland. Although it’s a bit long, I encourage you to watch it. There are a lot of interesting things to see there, as well as many beautiful views. I’ll be doing a new video in this series every week. Next week is Enoshima Aquarium.

Continuing my From East to West video series, I talk a bit about Japanese pirates. Actually, my daughter was pretending to be a pirate in the park while I talked about packing and throwing out garbage. Enjoy the video!
I’m going to try to get these videos done over the next month. Once I’m all caught up with these, I can work on the more travel-related Japan videos that should have a much broader appeal.
Let me know what you think about these videos in the comments below. If you want to see the entire playlist, you can go here. It’s in reverse chronological order.
Originally, my YouTube channel was dedicated to Japan videos. Now, I’m working on Booktube videos. But I’m still doing Japan videos. Do you think they go together? I explain in this video.
Oh yeah, my daughter makes an appearance. What do you think? Let me know in the comments.
You may remember some videos I made about our move to Canada. The last one I did was exactly two weeks before our move. I found it difficult to do the other videos because of a lack of time and motivation. However, since I’ve been working on my YouTube channel quite a bit lately, I’m feeling the motivation to get those videos all finished. So, here is the next video in the series.
In this video, we visited Kamakura for the last time. It’s probably my favourite place in Japan, especially since I lived there for four years, but also because of the history and beautiful places. Enjoy the video!
