Last month, folks who've been itching to visit Japan were given some hope (mixed perhaps with a dash of envy) as one of the most popular and influential YouTubers ever to hit the platform relocated to an undisclosed area near Tokyo.
In a video titled "It finally happened!," YouTuber Felix Kjellberg, better known as "PewDiePie," opens with a drive to the Japanese Embassy in London before excitedly showing off his visa to the camera.
“We’re going ... we’re going! We got approved,” he says. "I'm so ready." From there the video documents the final steps in the move from England to Japan, a process that has been nearly five years in the making. Kjellberg and his wife, Marzia, bought a house here in 2018.
