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!
Moving to Japan? That’s a big decision, but maybe a good one! Jason Brock has been living in Tokyo, Japan for the last two years or so. He decided to put together a list of his top five reasons for living in Japan.
X-Factor’s Jason Brock starts Vlog on YouTube. YouTube Vloggers are everywhere, and Jason Brock wanted to join in. Watch his video to see his personal life in vlog form.
I just wanted to let you know that my 8th Annual Christmas Holiday show is on December 20th at 7pm (Japan Time). You can watch it virtually (online) OR in real life in Tokyo. You can get tickets for either option here.
If you come to the show in real life, it is in Roppongi, Tokyo, Japan at a piano bar called MyScotch. The information about the show is all here.
I hope you can make it, and have a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Kwanzaa!
I decided to do another reaction video to my own performance on the X-Factor USA 2012 (Season 2). This is the one where I did that J-Lo (Jennifer Lopez) and Pitbull song. It was my first performance on the live shows.
This is also the show where I got my “glitter explosion” that I had talked about on my initial audition. It wasn’t as noticeable as I’d hoped.
Simon Cowell, Britney Spears, Demi Lovato and even L.A. Reid give me their feedback on my performance (and it wasn’t as great as I’d hoped).
On the plus side, I get to stand between Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez and grab Mario’s butt on national television. lol I also get to run my hand down the body of a HOT Japanese dancer. So it wasn’t all bad.
Why did L.A. Reid choose this song for me? The world may never know. But anyway, I hope you enjoy my reaction.
This is my review of four Japanese LGBTQ+ films as requested by my fans on Patreon. In this video I review the following movies:
1. Close Knit (彼らが本気で編むときは, Karera ga Honki de Amu Toki wa)
2. Taboo (御法度, Gohatto)
3. Kakera: A Piece of Our Life (カケラ, Kakera)
4. To Each His Own (ちょっと今から仕事やめてくる, Chotto Ima Kara Shigoto Yamete Kuru)
I hope you enjoy it, and I hope you get a chance to see these films, as well! If you’ve already watched them, please let me know in the comments your thoughts. I’d love to chat about it.
People often leave me comments that I should have gotten a record deal or gotten more famous after the X-Factor. Well, it would have been nice, but unfortunately that’s not how it worked out for me. I’m very grateful for what I got, though, and what I have now (people like you watching my video, for example!).
Anyway, this video will explain my experience with fame and why I’m not famous “anymore.” lol I hope you enjoy it. Have a great day!!

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!
