On June 26th, the John Daub * ONLY in JAPAN channel becomes the newest channel in the ONLY in JAPAN series. It is a channel I created in 2011 after the Great Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami and it has now become my home for the a new generation of video content about stories in Japan.

In this video, I talk about why I started ONLY in JAPAN, about myself – my origins and Japan and why I stayed. All things are born from an idea. This was mine born from a great love of my second home and the kindness that has been given me. This is my gift.

I learned video editing in 2003 when I produced a Hitchhiking in Japan video. For the last 17 years, I’ve been producing video content about this country and reporting on it as a reporter for NHK World’s Tokyo Eye, Journey’s in Japan and Destination Kansai programs. Please join me on adventures around Japan in search of stories that will open your eyes to the Japan I know so well. Channel: http://youtube.com/johndaub
