I have been following this blog (https://bit.ly/2Hwf7PD) for several months now. It is actually a video blog, very capably produced by a young woman named Angela. She is of Japanese descent, but grew up in New Zealand, but decided to return to Japan to live. She posts substantive videos of between 10-15 minutes, each one telling a different story about a travelling throughoutJapan. I like this blog because Angela seems very sweet, genuine and conscientious in her posts as she chronicles all aspects of Japanese life, from what foods to eat, to where to go all over Japan. Clearly it must be working, because she has an amazing 175,546 subscribers! Most of her videos get 25- 50,000 views – some are as high as 1 million!!
So, the post I want to comment on today is one where Angela goes for a 70km bike trip, across 6 islands in southern Japan, beginning with a bullet ride from Tokyo to Hiroshima:
Hello, Angela! I loved watching your post today! How great is it that you can cycle through the beautiful Japanese countryside so easily. I loved all of the small details you gave like what bike rental to choose, and the maps along the way. I especially loved the the way you built suspense in your post, by splitting the video in two just as you were looking for somewhere to stay for the night – a great way to get people to come back for more, and see how things turned out! Also, a really great way to demonstrate Japanese hospitality. As one of your followers so aptly said:
I think the more I watch your videos, not only do I learn a lot about Japanese culture and cuisine, but also it makes me want to go there. Your posts are refreshing, and I love the way you find ‘off the beaten track‘ things to show us.
I thank you for your posts, and wish you success.
