Who is The ExOtaku?

Honestly? Just your average guy.

My name is Brian, a college student studying in Japan. Starting from middle school I had a strong interest in Japanese Anime which fueled all my decision making towards studying abroad. Now, after living in Tokyo for 2 years, I’ve learned to appreciate everything that just wasn’t.

Through my photos and articles, I want to share the side of Japan that most of us were either not taught or didn’t seem to care. This blog is to debunk foreigners what think they know, and replace it with discoveries that a tourist might never find.

So why an ExOtaku? Because loving only one side of Japan just isn’t worth it.
