Japanese: YouTube resources for Japanese learners

I'm sure a post like this already exists, but I wasn't able to find one so I created a new one.

These are channels that are not only about the language, but also the culture. All of these channels are helpful in my opinion.

Japannel ( ) - A youtube channel featuring three Japanese students who introduce Japan from various aspects such as language, food, culture, customs, etc. Their videos are fully in Japanese with English subtitles.

Life Where I'm From ( ) - A half Canadian half Japanese family living in Japan. This channel gives educational insights into the everyday, special events and uniquely Japanese aspects of life in Japan. The majority of videos are in English, however, do feature some Japanese being spoken every once in awhile as the nieces and nephews of the channel owner are sometimes featured on the channel and speak no English.

KemushiChan ロレッタ ( - This channel features a polygot who moved to Japan from New York City. Her videos are typically about the Japanese language and her personal journey, as well as study tips, and more. Most of her videos are in English, with a Japanese intro and outro.

Japanese Ammo with Missa ( - Is a youtube channel that gives beginner lessons in Japanese. Within her lessons, she gives a through explaination that could help with learning. Her videos are mainly in English with the intro being in Japanese with subtitles in Japanese with Furigana and English.

あかね的日本語教室 ( - Is a youtube channel about the Japanese language mainly. Her videos are completely in Japanese with Japanese subtitles. In addition, she speaks very clearly which can help with listening comprehension.

internationally ME ( - Is a channel featuring a New Zealand raised person currently living in Tokyo. Her videos are mainly about the lesser known areas of Japan as well as the lives and cultures that surrond it. The videos are completely in English.

Will add more as I find more!
