    Thinking of Leaving Tokyo (also... All about Camping in Japan)

    Been thinking about moving out of Tokyo lately... Perhaps its been all the camping (which we cover in great detail in this episode) or perhaps its just the appeal of a new lifestyle and adventure. Oh... This episode is mostly about Camping in Japan because.... it's awesome!

    Moving to Japan THE RIGHT WAY | A Case Study

    I've long spoken of the "right way" to move to Japan, and today we are looking at a couple. They have offered to share their time with us and their experiences in the hopes that maybe others can learn from their successes and mistakes~

    And what's more... is they have a podcast of their own!

I LOVE THIS PODCAST!

I’ve been a fan of this podcast for a couple years now and it has been such an incredible escape (and great way to feel like I’m back in Japan)! The At-Home series has definitely been my favorite so far and would love more episodes but I also can’t wait to see what Norm will come up with next!

Jonathanツ ,
