Little Canada in Big Tokyo

Little Canada in Big Tokyo

1Dru Tang is a Canadian blogger and honorary Tokyoite. The man behind HinoMaple’s Guidebook and their concierge service that helps travelers find their way across the sprawling metropolis and the rest of the country. Born and raised in Vancouver, B.C, Dru has lived in Tokyo since 2005. During the first 6 months of living here, he set out to explore every corner of Tokyo, getting lost hundreds of times while gathering a vast array of knowledge of the immense megalopolis’ unique culinary and cultural offerings. Dru takes us on a crash course through all the haut-eats in Tokyo, with one catch—they all have to be Canadian!

 

We first meet up to catch a coffee and an early bite at The Canadian Coffee House, or literally カナディアンコーヒーハウス (Canadian Ko-Hee House) in Tama city. This local staple, with its distinctive building and roof, has been a namesake of the area for over 34 years.

The Contributions of Expats to their Host Societies

           Expats give a lot to whatever society they live in; they do so economically, socially, and culturally. They shop, pay taxes and make donations. They create and perform art, entertainment and business. They support each other, share information, explore, worship, celebrate, and by and large practice good health, social behavior, family life and multiculturalism principles. In sum, they generally enrich the societies they inhabit.

For those itching to explore distant cultures in far flung places, the easiest way to get to see the world is to study abroad. For Kyla Humphreys, an MBA graduate hailing from Maple Ridge, a sleepy suburb of Vancouver, the process allowed her the ability to sharpen her tools and skillset in a way that, as she states, beneficially granted her an edge among her peers. Even though the experience took the former student in an entirely new direction, eventually setting up an unrelated business venture in the process. As she logged in hours at SFU’s advertising program, for Kyla, the dream to travel was always in the back of her mind.

Pastel Pink ‘Babe’

petra collins feature rex 2If you haven't yet heard of Canadian Expat Petra Collins you might have missed the Time magazine article she was featured in, the Adidas commercial she directed or the Levi's one.
