  • Hey guys!

  • I had some free time this afternoon so I asked you guys

  • on my Facebook page if there are any questions you wanted to ask me

  • um about myself or Japan or just whatever.

  • Um I haven't done many of these Q+A videos so

  • I get lots of Youtube emails that I don't have time to reply to

  • so hopefully I can answer some of those questions in this video

  • What is your favourite Japanese snack of all time?

  • This is very difficult there are so many good ones to choose from

  • but my absolute favourite would probably be Black Thunder

  • What's your favourite Pokémon?

  • Um this is so hard to choose too

  • I really like Raichu

  • Um... I like Paras

  • which is a really weird choice

  • I'm sure you're all thinking

  • Um I just really like its voice I think. I think it's really cute

  • Where is your favourite place to eat in Tokyo?

  • I went to a really delicious vegan place the other day actually

  • I think it was called Journey in English

  • Um...

  • The rest of the name is really weird

  • I will put it right here

  • Cause I can't remember what it was called

  • But that place was so yummy

  • even if you're not vegan I think you would love it

  • Um I had a hayashi rice dish

  • which is kind of like a stew I guess with rice

  • and their pancakes were so good

  • they had like a cream and a fruit topping

  • oh it was so yummy

  • Which city in Japan do you like the most and why?

  • Hmm...

  • I used to live up in Northern Japan in a city called Morioka

  • It's in Iwate Prefecture

  • Um I really liked it there,

  • I think um the main reason is because it's very similar to my hometown, Victoria, in Canada

  • Lots of nature, um a little bit cooler weather than you'll find in Tokyo since it's pretty far up north

  • and... less people

  • definitely less crowded

  • but it wasn't like a super countryside town it was kinda a nice balance between city and countryside

  • Um I'm gonna say so far my favourite place would probably be Morioka

  • Other than the Kanto Region where do you want to take a trip to in Japan

  • Um well actually I have never been off of the main island of Honshu

  • So I would love to visit Hokkaido or Shikoku or Kyushu

  • Um anywhere

  • actually

  • I've done lots of traveling all up and down the main island

  • But so yeah I haven't been off of it

  • so I would definitely love to visit any of the other islands

  • I think that would be really cool

  • Hi Sharla what is your favourite thing about living in Japan and why?

  • Ah... This is really hard to pick just one and I'm just gonna say the first thing that comes to my head

  • I really like how people in Japan kind of just let you do your own thing

  • so if you're walking down the street you won't get lots of people yelling at you or coming up and talking to you

  • um unless they wanna practice their English

  • I do get that sometimes

  • but um what I mean is kind of like in Canada I'll walk down the street here and I'll have guys yelling something at me

  • or um if you're sitting at the bus stop strangers will start talking to you

  • and sometimes that's cool, like sometimes you know you're in the mood to talk to people

  • but other times you just like wanna be by yourself and you don't wanna you know you're not in the mood to talk with random people

  • and that doesn't happen often in Japan

  • so I really like that

  • it's always very um people just mind their own business and they let you do your own thing

  • and i just feel a lot more comfortable going outside in Japan because I know that many people won't bother me

  • What is your favourite Japanese store?

  • I'm assuming they're meaning like clothes for shopping

  • in that case I would say probably Spins or Wego

  • I can't choose one they're very similar

  • um they're both in Harajuku they have very like cute street fashion and I just love both of them

  • Do you plan to stay in Japan for as long as you can?

  • Also, what sparked your wish to study and get into the Japanese world?

  • It would be interesting to hear

  • Um... Hmm...

  • That's kind- I- hm...

  • I do plan on staying in Japan for a while

  • I don't know how long that will be, I'm pretty... random

  • If all of a sudden I feel like moving to another country one day

  • I will do that so I can't really decide on my long term plans yet

  • um at the moment I'm really enjoying living in Japan

  • I have a job which I will talk about in the future

  • Um I wanna make like a proper video about it

  • but um long term wise, I'm not sure yet

  • And what sparked my wish to study and get into the Japanese world... hm...

  • Er... I first started studying Japanese when I was I think 13

  • Um I think I mentioned this in a really crappy video that I made a long time ago about like how I started studying Japanese and stuff

  • but that video like sucks I don't even want you guys to go watch it

  • so um I will say it again

  • But I... In Canada you have to choose a third? Third language I guess it is

  • We study French

  • Um it's mandatory to study French up until grade 8

  • and then in grade 9 you can choose another language to study

  • you can either continue on with your French or you can choose another one

  • And I thought I already have like a basis of French down so I'll move on to another one

  • and we had I think Russian, Spanish, er... Japanese

  • um German? There might have been German

  • No, maybe not

  • um anyways we had like 3 or 4 languages to choose from and I just thought Japanese sounded cool

  • so I picked it randomly

  • And um as I started studying it I really fell in love with the culture and the language was fun to learn

  • I wasn't much of a book studier so I got pretty bad grades

  • in my Japanese classes actually

  • er in high school

  • but I still really enjoyed the language and I made lots of Japanese friends

  • through um like a Japanese club we that had at school and I just yeah I guess I just fell in love with the culture and the people so

  • that's why I stuck with it

  • Now this is an interesting one

  • Do you wear a mask like a lot of people in Japan do?

  • Like in flu season etc? I've never seen you in one

  • Um well the reason you haven't seen me in one is because um if I wore one

  • in my videos you wouldn't be able to hear me talking cause it really muffles your speech

  • but yes I definitely do wear a mask

  • There are actually several different reasons that I would wear one

  • I wear one when I'm sick um I wear one when I'm going to like a crowded area say like hm... if I'm gonna go to like maybe Shinjuku Eki

  • and I go shopping there all day I might wear a mask just so that I don't catch a cold from someone

  • And I'll also sometimes wear a mask if I'm not wearing makeup

  • I know that's silly but um that's a thing in Japan

  • People will wear the masks if they don't have time to do their makeup in the morning and they feel awkward out in public without makeup

  • Um which I do because lots of people look at me because I'm different looking I have blonde hair now

  • which makes me stand out even a little more than I used to

  • so I feel very awkward when I'm out in public and I'm not like, I don't have all my makeup on

  • so sometimes I'll wear a mask for that

  • How do body mods go over in Japan? Do people look down on them or do people not really care?

  • Um... It really depends like what you're doing

  • If you work in the fashion scene then you can totally get away with having tonnes of piercings and tattoos and crazy hair colours

  • it wouldn't matter at all you see lots of that when you go into like say Harajuku or um even areas in Shibuya

  • It depends what you're doing like it's some of the store workers will have tonnes of piercings and tattoos

  • and er it doesn't matter because that that's fine for their job

  • Um but in general yes they do look down on piercings

  • which is why I don't have mine anymore

  • I used to have um three in each ear

  • ear piercings aren't like err looked down on at all here actually so don't worry if you have tonnes of ear piercings

  • that should be fine but I-I ended up taking those out anyways

  • I had my tragus and my nose and my lip

  • and yes I took them all out because I wanted to get jobs in Japan and it's really hard to do that um when you have piercings

  • it just really limits your choice of jobs so that is why I took those out

  • I find that really sad because I love piercings and I really want them back

  • My job now is very... very... how can I say, not Japanese

  • they don't really care what I look like, what I wear, and I don't think they would mind if I had piercings

  • so maybe I will put them back in the future

Hey guys!
