Natsuki's Story

@natsukitheman

From humble beginnings as a wannabe rockstar living in rural Japan, who never quite clinched his lifelong dreams, after bumping into British ex-pat Chris Broad down a street one night in Yamagata they struck up an immediate friendship. Natsuki went on to become a hugely popular face on the Abroad in Japan channel, with thousands of loyal fans tuning in to hear his hilariously unfiltered opinions on the world. Whether you want to see him react to discovering English swear words or tasting marmite, join him and Chris on one of their many adventures around Japan, or hear his life story in the 50 minute documentary Natsuki: The Movie, here you’ll find every episode featuring the man himself, with cheeky persona and infectious sense of humour on full display.
