PewDiePie Reveals His Favorite Thing About Japan

While PewDiePie has been the center of some controversies in the past, his move to Japan seems to have mellowed the YouTuber out a bit. Part of this seems to be due to the fact that he — along with his wife Marzia Kjellberg – is finally living in Japan, only a few years after he announced the move. After many setbacks and a global pandemic, the couple was finally able to make the move to Japan, fulfilling PewDiePie's long-time dream. Now, after getting to spend some time fully living in the country, PewDiePie is sharing a few of the reasons he likes living there, including one that some fans might not like.


In a Q and A video about why PewDiePie moved to Japan, one fan asked if he enjoyed getting recognized less in public, or if he misses the attention. Prior to this, PewDiePie and his wife lived in the UK and were recognized in public frequently, including one incident where people mobbed him while the couple was at dinner (via Dexerto.) "That's also, honestly, part of the reason we like Japan. No one knows who we are here, and I really enjoy that. As much as I like meeting you guys, I do also enjoy that. But also, don't misunderstand me. I also appreciate people coming and just saying hi for a bit," PewDiePie said in the video. That doesn't mean he isn't appreciative of his fans, though.

PewDiePie does appreciate people saying hi

PewDiePie did clarify that meeting fans in public randomly can have a positive impact on his day, but it also means that he has to have his guard up at all times. Later on in the video, PewDiePie told a brief version of how he and Kjellberg ended up living in Japan. The short version is that after staying in the country for a month in 2018, at the end of the trip they both realized they really enjoyed their time there and didn't really want to go home.


PewDiePie also discussed how the move has impacted his content. He said that he has really enjoyed making vlogs about both the journey to Japan and actually living in Japan, despite not being someone who wants to share details about his personal life. He said the reactions have been very positive so he plans on continuing the vlogs in the future.
