His experiences have made him a sought after voice on life inside Japan, featured on the BBC, Tedx, NHK and the Japan Times.


A chortleworthy look at the land of karaoke, cat fanatics and chocolate-coated fries.
*The Times*

From wide-eyed exchange teacher to seasoned youtuber, Chris Broad explores Japan in all its quirky glory, surviving earthquakes, North Korean missile alerts, cat cafe allergies and Love Hotel evictions. Endlessly fascinating!
*Will Ferguson, author of Hokkaido Highway Blues*

Fascinating, fact-packed and very funny. Broad's wry humour, in-depth knowledge and adept storytelling make him an engaging guide to the bewildering Japanese experience. Accurately captures the excitement and dream-like disorientation of a foreigner discovering Japan. An excellent and enjoyable read for the Japan-curious. I loved it and learned a lot.
*Sam Baldwin, author of For Fukui's Sake: Two years in rural Japan*

Chris Broad's wry, self-deprecating memoir carves a unique path across Japan bringing him into contact with far too many cats, heartening renewal in Tohoku, and even pizza with Ken Watanabe. This is a thoroughly contemporary book, a memoir of life in Japan that couldn't have been written at any other point in history.
*Iain Maloney, author of The Only Gaijin in the Village*

This book seeks to unravel a culture that can often seem distant to visitors, charting his life over ten years and countless quirky anecdotes.
