Who’s behind GaijinLife


That me

I’m Yugo a guy in his mid 20’s  born in Montreal, Canada now living and wondering around Japan.

I always had a passion for Japan, that mysterious and enigmatic culture captivated my youth. A lot of people who are passionate about japan have a general point of interest. For some its the martial arts, for others it’s the architecture, mangas, the technology and so on… But for me it was its history, its philosophy it’s culture. Old tradition that shaped a nation of wonderful people. A world that share old customs with modernist. With a growing and growing interest I kept on reading and studying about Japans history, the old philosophy anything i could get my hands on.

Here I am now 4 years after still in Japan.

I certainly hope you will enjoy. Feel free to comment and share with me If you want to reach me email me at gaijinlife@ymail.com
