Hi everyone! Welcome to my official blog.
If you want content about Japanese pop culture and life in Japan, this is the place for you! I’ll talk about everything from how to get a job in Japan to how to organize your Japanese idol goods. My goal is to bring Japan culture to the world by explaining how life really is like here for an expat and how pop culture is the ultimate soft power.
The name nihonchique is a combination of two words: Nihon means Japan in Japanese and chique, which comes from chic which means to be fashionable in french or elegant and sophisticated.
I started this blog initially right before I studied abroad at Kansai Gaidai University in Osaka, Japan my last year of university in 2011. I wanted to document my time in Japan and some thoughts. Today, it has turned into more than that. This blog is about my experiences in life with loving and living in Japan, working at Japanese company, Johnny’s and Associates ( a talent agency in Japan), Japanese Entertainment, Dramas, Movies, Fashion, and much more!
