More about the Contributor:
We first encountered Jeremy's Tokyo-based YouTubing in early 2014, and as he progressed, we became more and more interested in and appreciative of his quirky, funny, dare we say ‘French’ perspective (yeah, we dare). Jeremy has now returned to France where he continues reporting on Japanese culture. 
In his own words:

From 2008 to 2013, I lived in Gunma Prefecture, drove a Nissan Silvia S14, and found that the best parts of the prefecture - and, in fact, the country - are more often than not the places that are a bit of a drive past the typical destinations, and the best experiences you can have are the ones that you share with the amazing people you meet on the long, winding road.
