Living in Japan is awesome, and X-Factor finalist Jason Brock is doing just that in a super tiny apartment in Tokyo (near Shinjuku) that is just 180 square feet (16.7 m2). But even though it’s small, it still gives an American foreigner a comfortable place to live in Japan. Jason only pays ¥60000 (~$550) per month for rent, and for him that’s a great deal!

Japanese Hand Gestures – they are often different from the hand signs used in other countries. Since Jason Brock is an American, he made this video to compare hand gestures between the United States and Japan. You can see Japanese hand signals for things like “OK” and “bad” in Japan (among many more). Then, you will see the US version of that gesture. It’s an interesting comparison!
Japan vs USA – each one responded to the coronavirus pandemic in different (and similar) ways. Has the US done better than Japan in handling the outbreak? What has Japan done well?
