茅ケ崎みなみ

    Chigasaki Minami is a Japanese YouTuber, whose vlogs focus on traveling Japan via motorcycle, camping, and other outdoor activities. Chigasaki leans into her similarities with Shima Rin from the anime series ゆるキャン△, invoking the character at different times through her appearance and actions, so fans of the anime or manga or similar series should definitely check it out.

    Beyond being an entertaining YouTube channel, Chigasaki's videos are also great listening practice. She speaks relatively slowly and clearly, and like many Japanese videos, there are subtitles covering almost every line. While a lot of the vocabulary is hobby related, from camping gear or motorcycle parts, there's also a lot of daily life and Chigasaki's commentary to even things out.

    Given the specific focus, Chigasaki's videos might not be for everyone, but for anyone looking for a relaxing way to immerse themselves in Japanese, look no further.
