There is a very popular YouTube creator named “Sharmander” who makes some pretty interesting, and very personable, videos. The commentary is very upbeat and cheerful, very friendly, openminded, gregarious, and easy-going.

I like this style very in that if you are considering coming out this way for a trip of a life-time you can really see yourself alongside the host, eating cool and different foods, wearing different clothing, trying new activities, and having a really unique and special cultural experience. There are things to see, fruit to shop for, onsen baths to jump into, and a myriad of incredible things to see.

I like Sharla a lot and I hope we can see more and more of her terrific adventures, and not just because she is a Canadian like yours truly. She is a marvellous host and a great ambassador for Japanese culture and experiences!
