Why My Family's Cost of Living is Cheaper in Tokyo

7 days left to back the documentary! https://igg.me/at/lwif-being-japanese-documentary/x

Here’s the thing. I moved from Vancouver, Canada, to Tokyo, Japan. In Canada, I used to make more money, yet my quality of life is somehow better across the Pacific ocean. This is largely in part due to the cost of living being cheaper for my family. How could this be, in one of the most expensive cities in the world?

I’ve made a playlist of all the videos I’ve made that illustrate the quality of life that I talked about in this video https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLwBDd34gIIWm7pg8ZdqHPjfXxjxE1Z75q
