I always enjoy hearing the perspective of places from the natives. Often, foreigners come to many places with rose colored glasses (including Japanese people's views on Western countries) so it's nice to see an honest perspective. No place is perfect, and there are good and bad points. What's good is people have the freedom to choose where they live in the world and freedom to move around. Especially now. Great video!

+OkanoTV Too bad we got more of Chippy Chirp In's perspective than Ayaka's. Here's a tip, Chippy...Next time you ask a woman's opinion, let HER give it

I don't find the word offensive. Most foreigners in Japan refer to themselves and each other as gaijin anyway. The biggest job site for Japan is called gaijinpot and no one bats an eye at that. 

The only time I would have a problem with it is if I'm at a shop or restaurant and referred to as "gaijin-san" instead of "okyakusan". Thankfully that has never happened to me before. I've always been referred to as okyakusan/sama or Robaatsu (Roberts) san. Great topic, and as always, great to see the Japanese perspective on it.

Looking for great study materials for speaking Japanese? I bought both of these books and they helped me a lot!
Hey guys! Here is another video review of some Japanese language study materials I've used and continue to use. In this series of books, the primary focus is on conversation, pronunciation, intonation, and general flow of s...

If one starts their own school, it can be a very lucrative career.

Yup, I try to stay as positive as possible while still being realistic. There are too many negative people making videos and while they might feel they are telling the "truth", they are really just expressing their frustration with themselves more than Japan. In my opinion.

When this happens to me I just use only Japanese with them. I get to practice my Japanese and they practice English. If they ask me to correct them or teach them something, I use it as an opportunity to set up a private lesson if I feel they'd make a good student.
