Total Consciousness


Thank you for your support — you're officially helping me create original skits in Japanese every week! You'll receive access to basic Patreon updates (release schedule, embarrassing old videos of me speaking Japanese, etc.) via the feed, and moreover, learn the secret to total consciousness — a trick I picked up while serving as a Buddhist monk in my previous life. Namaste!

Thank you, ありがとう, धन्यवाद. You're directly helping me create longer and more interesting content. With your support, I can begin to create videos based off my essays and novellas!  You'll receive access to not only Patreon updates, but also occasional Patreon exclusive livestreams! Topics will include Japanese linguistics, cultural taboos, meditation advice, and more! Ask me anything. Let's sit down together and celebrate Japan.  (Note: since the birth of my twin daughters (September 13, 2017), I've had to put livestreams on hold in order to keep regularly releasing phonetic lessons. I intend on streaming again after my kids start preschool, but this may not be for a while; for the time being please consider joining the $1 tier, or the $10 tier for access to Japanese Phonetics. Thank you for your understanding!) Welcome to the Temple of Eternal Peace.


The more you know: Temple of Eternal Peace is the name of the Temple Dogen Zenji founded in Fukui prefecture.

Linguistic Enlightenment


土下座 (the deep bow). Thank you. With your support I can begin making the transition from office employee to full time content creator; you're providing me with every artist's dream — time and creative freedom. In addition to all tier one and two rewards, you'll receive complete access to Japanese Phonetics, my Patreon video series that teaches advanced Japanese pronunciation and intonation concepts in easy to understand terms. Use Japanese Phonetics and take your spoken Japanese to a higher level! This is the tier of linguistic enlightenment. Thank you again, and please enjoy Japanese Phonetics!
