Youtube is an entertainment and social networking powerhouse that has been known to steal hours away from my day as I view video after video covering the things I am interested in or just what has become interesting and viral at the time. I have been trying my hand at my own Youtube Channel with plans to get a more capable video recorder in the future, hopefully just before I leave for Japan.
Check them out and share the ones I missed
There are myriad of Japan related Youtube Channels covering everything from learning Japanese to cooking to anime figures. I follow many of them and surf into new ones from time to time so I thought I’d make a post containing a big fat list of Japan related Youtube Channels. In case one or more of your favourite channels in missing from the list, leave a comment with a link to it (spammers will be nuked), I will look over it and if it’s Japan content and/or power level is over 9000 I will add it.
