  1. 立派な気持ちで日本にいらしたんですね。なんか嬉しい気もしますw私も半年ほどイギリスにいたときは寂しい気持ちと親への感謝への気持ちと、いろいろやろうっていう気持ちが混ざった気持ちでした。

  2. Through my school I can go to Japan over the summer for 6 weeks and stay in a host's house as an exchange. I asked my mom, and she was agreed immediately. however, I have bad health and need to do 2+ hours of physical therapy. it's not something that I could bring to Japan, so I told my mom that I decided that I wouldn't go. It sucks because my parents had no problems, but I myself did.

  3. 日本は世界に類を見ない程に安全な国であり、とりわけ女性にとっては安心して活動できる国だという事が暮らしてみて分ったでしょう。
    それを御両親に説明してあげてくださいね。

  4. Hey, can someone tell me something? I would love to go to Japan someday, but I'm still pretty young. Is there like a certain minimum age when people can go to japan like this or with some sort of exchange program? I'm just curious because I would really love to go.

  5. I have a question please read this ok so my friends wants to know this as well are japenese high school boys really perverts?

  6. First off, I would like to thank you for making this video! It's been the highlight of my day, honestly.. I've been having a hard time believing in my ability to study abroad to Japan for a year. As you mentioned in the video, your first encounter or experience with the application process, I too was in a similar situation. In fact, I'm a type 1 diabetic from Seattle, Washington. I am also taking my 3rd year of Japanese in my high school. I recently applied to a program, but even before officially applying, I told them my concerns on behalf of my illness. Of course they proceeded with it being absolutely supportive. I especially planned a year in advance for this particular program, so I had finally applied (in fact I was one of the first few to finish months ahead), and unfortunately was in the dark for a long time since they had not given me any further instructions. On the last day of the deadline, I was told to receive additional blood work from my doctor.

  7. +Strawberry Mochi My grandparents are unsure of letting me go to Japan next year because "Japan is so far away." I pretty much doubt the high schools in my area have classes where you can take Japanese. My grandparents are so old fashioned that they don't even trust me to stay home by myself when they go out for a couple hours. I'm thinking of doing the same as you did, writing a long letter as to why I want to go. (Which is wanting to be an english teacher when I'm older, which is one of my dream careers.) Money isn't much of a problem, just that I feel like the attempts I'll put in doesn't seem enough to me to convince my grandparents(more like my grandma cause honestly my grandpa doesn't mind really). And my grandmother is very paranoid about other countries. She sorta has an "America is the safest place on earth" belief. Any advice?

  8. my parents are the exact same! i asked to join the exchange student program at my school and go to south korea years ago, and my parents said no because they think it's some kind of dangerous third world country. i've tried to explain it to them dozens of times, but they don't understand. it is kind of frustrating when your parents deny you experiences simply because of their own "ignorance."

  9. I've wanted to go to Japan since high school. It was the combination of not having the money, me being the youngest that my momma didn't want to let me go, and it being a far away country. Even though it's been about 13 years now…I still want to go. I'm just going to find other means on going.

    Good for you that you managed to go sooner in your life. I wish I can say I'm jealous that your high school offered Japanese but there's no sense now. lol I did wish my high school offered it but they didn't. Oh well…

    Love your videos!

  10. I'm so glad things worked out in the end for you to come to Japan! It can be so difficult to get here sometimes, but you pushed through!!

    If you do end up moving to Tokyo I would love to meet up and chitchat a bit 🙂

  11. I know you are, coming from such a quiet farming place as Michigun you must have been so scared or adrenalin rushed. What would be better, just go back to your fukin plantation when you're homesick on here.

  12. こんにちは♪ ♪ ♪ 日本に来てくれて ありがとう!
    日本語を、英語に、正しく訳すのは難しいですね。

  13. My parents love me to much to let me go so far away.. I am 22 and can't imagine living so far from my family .. My siblings ,cousins,aunts etc.. My family is to great to leave.. Especially holidays

  14. Like you, my daughter feel in love with the Japanese language in junior and senior high school. Between her junior and senior high school years, she spent the summer at a Japanese language school in Fukuoka. She also decided she wanted to attend college in Tokyo, but not in an English language program, which many big Japanese universities have. She wanted to take all her classes in Japanese. To succeed, she had to raise not only her speaking and listening skills, but writing as well. Thanks to her summer in Japan and self-study, her Japanese was good enough to get her admitted to a university in Tokyo. So two days after she graduated high school, she moved to Tokyo at age 18 and begana nine month Japanese language program in Tokyo which prepared her to begin her freshman year in college one month later after that program ended (the Japanese school year begins in April). That was nearly four years ago. In April she'll begin her collegiate senior year. She left California as a teenager thinking Japan had few faults. Now, as she would tell you herself, she knows that not to be the case. Japan is a passive aggressive patriarchal society with a very healthy porn industry that seems to focus on middle aged men fantasizing about pre-pubescent girls. That said, she also realizes the advantages of living in Tokyo – the best mass transit system in the world, an incredibly clean city with a very low crime rate, especially gun crime, due to draconian punishment for illegally owning a gun. An excellent health care system that is incredibly inexpensive compared to that in the US. And I can attest it may be the best food city in the world. But maybe the best reason for a young person to live in Japan is the steeply declining birthrate has forced the Japanese government to realize they need foreign workers. Though my daughter is a full time student, she gets offered jobs all the time, no doubt thanks to her excellent Japanese skills. My point is that no place is perfect. Strawberry Mochi may paint a bright picture of a life in the Land of the Rising Sun, but let me admonish anyone who is considering such a move, to do your due diligence. As I said, there is much to like living there. But it is a homogenous society that can be hard on "gaijin" (foreigners).

  15. If you have a peanut allergy you must carry an epi-pen with you all the time, and you would obviously know how to use it. I think that was very ignorant and just plain reprehensible for the teacher to not allow you to go. Also, I don't get the impression that Japanese cuisine uses peanuts a lot. Maybe tempura could be fried in peanut oil, but you can always avoid thing like that. Really odd.

  16. 後進国の日本にようこそ アハハ   日本の事を知らない人が多くても驚かないが、何処に在るかも知らない人も多そうだ   そりゃ~親にしたら見知らぬ国へ娘が行くのは心配だよ   安全な国かどうかも判らないだろうし、大事な娘に変な虫が付かないかも心配だろうしね   ケリーが母親を日本へ招待したらと思うけど、遠くてお金が掛かるからな~   コンクリートジャングルの眠らない街、東京へ引っ越すの?  あそこは遊ぶには良いけど住むには名古屋のが良いと思うぞ  東京は田舎から出て来た人が多いからマナーが良く無いし、変なのが多いよ  そう言ってケリーを名古屋に引き止める俺がここに^^  終わり。

  17. I have had a desire to go to Japan is learning the language going to help I have work exp at schools here in the USA I hope to go live one day love the place it's my dream

  18. First, I think it's really admirable that you chose to study Japanese in HS, with the plan of eventually becoming a teacher of it. Second, I think it's fantastic that you persevered and did manage to get to Japan. Third, nothing enables you to understand the world better than experiencing other cultures first-hand, and an exotic and advanced culture like Japan – which will forever be a mystery to Westerners, as all of Asia – will give you a very special perspective on things. You will never recover!:)

  19. Great advice. I was touched by what you said about your allergy preventing you from going. My brother is a diabetic and he has been prevented from many things due to this. I admit his courage to keep trying despite people's misconceptions of his issue.

  20. Be proud of yourself and your achievments. And that applies to everybody reading this comment.
    If you're planning on making your dreams come true on the other hand – good luck! Just have faith.

  21. so you first landed on Aomori,  the most snowy city in the world.  It's nteresting. Were you ALT at those days?

  22. I'm leaving in 3 months for a college in Tokyo.

    Is there anything I should know that people don't usually tell you?

  23. I checked out your mom's blog, she wrote so beautifully about you on her Japan visit post, you could definitely feel the immense amount of love she has for you. And tell her that her fall decorations are perfection!

  24. you have to be really lucky to have japanese language in highschool. … in my school they only teach spanish… just like every other schools here in both middle and high school.. and everyone there is basically Hispanic so all of them already know spanish… why can't there be another language other than Spanish . ,_,
    ( besides the fact Spanish is the 2nd major language in America)

  25. たくさんの情熱を持って、困難を乗り越えて、日本に来てくれた事を嬉しく思います。
    Thank you very much

  26. My half brother lives in Japan and I want to go there. I'm still trying to convince my parents to let me go and live with him. I even told them I could quit my sport team and travel because I want to become a(n) English teacher in Japan.

  27. hey girl, i know this is going to sound really weird, and way past the fact of being relevant now, but i saw you at the Tokyo train station near the Ghibli store this past April. I didn't approach you because I wasn't familiar with your channel at the time. I actually thought you were someone i met in the states before, so i sat there staring dumbfound-idly for a minute trying to figure out how i knew you. Totally don't mean to sound creepy also, just thought i'd share the fact that our paths have crossed before ! Take care !

  28. Go easy a little on the liquid liner. You've got round eyes and might consider making the line on top a little thinner and more extended to the side.

  29. I'm saving a lot of money so both my older brother and I can do a 2 week japanese language school trip in 18 months

  30. Hi I'm japanese man.
    you were talking about your Peanuts allergies,
    The back of the commodity of supermarkets and convenience stores in Japan have indications on allergies now(egg,wheat ,soy and pork).
    If you could read it I think that you can live even more comfortably in Japan.

    P.S. I think that you're so beautiful.

  31. I am wondering i want to go to japan now and i am 14 and u have to be 15 i cant get a job and we dont have alot of money and i want to go to japan a coulpe weeks after my birthday so… What should i do.

  32. So glad to have found your channel! I'm thinking about going to Japan this summer, so your videos will be very helpful.

  33. With the age of 14 I heard about high school exchange for the first time. I already learned Japanese and I planed to do this with 17 or 18. I talked to my parents and they agreed. I worked really hard for this exchange. But then, a few years later, I wanted to apply to the program and my parents didn't allow it. It was not a money issue. They "just" (really hard thing for parents to go through) were afraid to let me go and live my life. Now I'm an adult and I'm still very angry with my parents. I didn't felt good for a few months. It was my dream and I worked for it so hard to turn it into reality. It was such a long time I focused on this one thing. This is really depressing…
    Thank you for your video. Hope your mom feels better now.

  34. Right now I've started secondary school (which I think is middle school in America) I know I'm young and only at the age of 12 of course my parents won't let me go, and I'm fine with that. Though I'm young I'm very mature in more ways than one, I understand the consequences of moving to another country with a different culture, language etc. So I've told my parents that since I'm not allowed to go to Japan at the age of 12 to begin with (I think it's against the law to go out of the county unless u have an adult with u, or ur going for exchange u need to live with a host family if ur too young, right?) so I want to go to Japan once I leave collage which is not anytime soon. I'll be 18 then so I'm allowed to leave the country, so I want to got study abroad in university and that all gives me around 5-6 years to actually learn the language so I'll not have any problems with that and I'm chill with living with a host family, not that I know that u can still live with a host family at the age of 18 but who know. So the reason I want to study in Japan is to learn about health and stuff to become a doctor because I've heard about all the stuff about Japan being very knowledgeable about the topic and that is what my parents have wanted me to become their whole lives and so of course I'll want to do what my parents set out for me to do, but only time can tell. More than the uk at least, but to be honest I also want to explore the culture because it is so different to the British culture.

    I'm not even actually even absolutely certain that I want to become a doctor or that in 6 years I would want to go to Japan or not, but as much as I want to become a doctor, I love the culture. So I want to check it out and I live anime and manga so why not? Even if I don't want to go to study being a doctor but I'll still want to go and study there cuz the education over there is probably way better than anything we've got in anywhere in the west. (I know my name is anime girl and my profile pic is an anime character, I'm not a weeb, more like otaku to be precise)

  35. When I'm 16 I wanna attend high school in Ottawa with my twin
    How should I convince my parents
    I'm dying here trying to be responsible and saving up money but I haven't talked to my parents bout it
    I hope they will be all yes and yes like yours were after convincing

  36. woow really?!?! so having any allergies and having an autoimmune disorder like diabetes type 1&2 can affect your application that sucks!!!! i don't see how that would affect one's application as long as they have there medication.

  37. When I turn 16 next year I really would like to go to Japan to study and work I like to draw anime and cartoons but I have no idea on what I want to do ? please help me ?

  38. My story is very similar to you when I was in high school I got rejected to study abroad for 1 month to Korea.. for another stupid reason.. I was a top student and the most enthusiastic one on learning..I am 23 years old I am studying to be a Tour Director but I really really wanna move to Korea to work there.. I have 1 job but I am applying for another one to make more money because I am serious about what I want unfortunately my mom doesn't approve that I go.. I will have one of my Tour Director teachers speak to her so she can understand what I want I been studying Korean also learning about the culture and country and everything about that country and yes I know my parents are not rich but I can make it happen I believe I can do it . Still I have to make my mom understand what I want for myself

  39. I can barely speak to my parents. They're just too intimidating. I can't tell either about my problems or dreams. I mean I wanted to be a chef but then my mom said that I should chose a more high paying job like a doctor or lawyer.

    I'm not an open person because I'm just not. I'm a very closed off introvert at home cause my parents are too damn intimidating. I cant speak to them one on one. I even lose my voice when I ask for allowance. Gah it's only a dream. I'll just dream about it. They'll probably shoot down the idea anyway.

  40. My situation is difficult. Every time there is TV program that exposes serious scandals in Japan my mum gets put off.

  41. I'm 14 and am Indian so I lived in any Australia until I was 12 and we moved to India cause my mum didn't like it there but I really want to move to the US or Australia and tips

  42. I found ur YouTube channel four hours ago iam continuously watching it eventually I fell in love with ur vlogs.ur way of life style being so inspirational.

  43. I thought so! Twenty five. Same age as my niece. If she told me she were planning to move so far away I'd get really worried. Then get used to it and relax as I did when she went to university. You are so good at this. Your blog reminds me of my other favorite. "Sailing La Vagabonde". Elayna and Riley have been at it for over four years now and guess what? She is a singer songwriter too. Drop them a line, share some notes. I bet they have seen your work.

  44. I just noticed this is a three year old post. Well I am old. Geez old people are slow. Oh wait! You are old now! Just kidding.

  45. I'm glad I found this video. My parents are very strict, and to a point, controlling. I cant even walk to the gas station 5mins from my house. I'm leaving for college in just half a year, and I'll be finally learning Japanese. My parents know I want to study abroad, but when I mention it, it always leads into harsh arguments which then morph into a lecture. I've kept my dream silent, and quiet now for 6 years of wanting to live in Japan. My parents envision me becoming a doctor, or a lawyer. I've been thinking on changing my major from biomedical sciences, to nursing just in case I find Japan isnt for me, I still have a career here at home. I'm scared, but so interested in such an odd way with Japan that I cant ignore it… essentially, I wish my parents would listen to my dreams without anger and without the need to feel they have to constantly control and manage my life, and my future…

  46. Do you know it's kind of funny I think I wrote to you once but I don't know if she hasn't responded back I don't exactly know where the response would go but I'm just assuming you probably miss my last one anyways been wanting to talk to you got some questions I'd rather just asking to you like I really face-to-face or anything like that but like I write you and then you acknowledge go ahead and ask your question there's just so much little details and small things that I want to ask my name is Edward by the way

  47. I’m trying to convince my parents to let me go to Korea next year for my senior year. They said no because I’ll be away for a long time and it’s dangerous but I’m trying to convince them. I’m visually impaired too so that might be hard😂
