Sharla is a pioneer among foreign YouTubers introducing Japan to the world. She started her channel way back in September 2011 and began making videos that focused on Japanese culture, food, and travel especially in the Tohoku region. Together her channels Sharla in Japan and Sharmander have over 100 million views and over 890,000 subscribers. With her upbeat personality and undeniable charm, Sharla is the perfect tour guide to this alluring and sometimes elusive country. Starting in February 2017, she'll be based in South Korea sharing Korean culture, language, and travel content in addition to periodically continuing Japanese content. Sharla’s channels are a great place to find out more about such subjects as onsens, restaurants, and even tutorials on how to be a Samurai (because we all secretly want to be a Samurai).
