I got invited to Japan! The Japanese TV show called “Who Wants to go to Japan” finds people who have an interest in some part of Japanese culture and invites them to Japan to experience that culture in person for the first time. They found my YouTube channel, Solid Gold Aquatics, and reached out to me about being on their show because of my interest in fancy goldfish, which originate (in part) from Japan. This meant an all-expenses paid trip to Japan for me to experience goldfish culture in Japan, so it obviously was a no-brainer! This video is the first in a series about my trip to goldfish farms, goldfish markets, and goldfish cafes in Japan. Tune in next Friday to see me land in Japan and make my first stop- the Koriyama Goldfish Museum in Japan.
I’m so happy that I got invited and was able to film everything I experienced. This is not the kind of thing most people ever get to experience, so I’m happy that I can share it with you guys through my videos! If you want to watch the full episode from the TV show (there is no version available with English translation though) here is a link. I’m not sure how long this link will remain active, because I believe this is an unofficial upload of the TV show that may get removed eventually. Link ► 世界！ニッポン行きたい人応援団 6月8日
