Have you studied abroad? No, I've never studied abroad. I really want to though. Can I survive in Japan even if I cannot eat seafood? No, you should never, ever come to Japan if you cannot eat seafood. Just kidding, you can definitely survive. Don't worry about it. What's the average height for Japanese men and women? The average height for adult male is about 172cm which is 5'6 and for adult female is about 159cm which is 5'2. Can I bring birth control with me? Yeah. Can I bring weed with me? Yeah. But you'll go to jail or be deported, though. Good luck! How come you have British, Australian, Tasmanian, American accents? I don't think I have any of those accents. I don't know... do I? Well I just try to pronounce things as best I can. We also received a video response from Jeremiah Henderson, who asked us a few specific questions. Have you been to Osaka? How was the atmosphere? I've been to Osaka once to go to the Universal Studio Japan with my family when I was a kid. I think the atmosphere was really nice and also people are very kind in general. I think many of them will be helpful to foreigners as well. How are the rent and utilities in Japan? It depends on the area and quality of your apartment, but the average of the rent my foreign friends in Japan pay every month is somewhere between ￥40,000 to ￥50,000. About utilities, I don't know if it's reasonable for you but it cost us somewhere between ￥7,000 to ￥8,000 per month when we were renting a small apartment. And it gets lot higher in the summer and the winter because of air conditioning and heating. It costs us more than ￥10,000 per month. How do you save money in Japan? Besides saving electricity? You'd probably spend the most on food, right? In many supermarkets in Japan, the items that don't last long get discounted a few hours before the store close. And some items would even be half of the original price, so I often get those discounted items to save money. How long does it take to learn Japanese? It completely depends on how much effort you put into it and how you study. Some people study for years and years and are never really able to hold a conversation. But I've known others who were conversationally fluent within a year. So you should immerse yourself while in Japan. All the people I know who speak Japanese well learned it while they were in Japan. Rachel studied for two years before she came to Japan but she wasn't able to speak Japanese at all. But by the time she left five months later she could have some conversations. Should I visit Japan in high school or college? If you can, why not do both? But if you cannot, both Rachel and I think that studying abroad during college is better. In high school Japanese students are really busy with schoolwork and cram school and club activities and things like that. So they don't have much free time at all. But once they get into college they have a lot of free time and they don't have to work as hard until their last year when they're looking for jobs. I hope that helped, Jeremiah. Thanks for watching and I'll see you next time!
