I've been learning Japanese on my own for going on 8 years, have passed JLPT N2, and can do day to day tasks in Japanese comfortably. In this video, I talk about why learning Japanese using romaji is not the way to go, and why learning the hiragana and katakana first is much better!

Went to Tsukuba again with Kevin Crocker. We initially intended to go to the Space Center and climb Mt. Tsukuba. But crowds and weather conditions got in the way. We did make the best of it by visiting Costco and ran into some robots along the way. This is actually a continuation of our previous trip to Tsukuba, which will appear in Season 5 of Kevin Crocker in Japan.
