After earning degrees in English and Business from the University of Kent, Chris Broad embarked on a transformative journey when he joined the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Programme, relocating to Sakata in 2012 as an Assistant Language Teacher. Under the pseudonym 'Abroad in Japan,' he began creating videos chronicling his unique experiences in the country, rapidly gaining online popularity. In 2015, he left the JET Programme to fully dedicate himself to producing YouTube content, and in 2023, he released a book bearing the same title as his vlog, skillfully documenting his life in Japan and its rich culture with a blend of wit and charm.
