About me


Nice to meet you! My name is Pan. Pan is just my internet name. The reason why I use Pan is because I like baking bread, and bread means “pan” in Japanese.

Oh, by the way I am Japanese ;)


Why am I in the Philippines?

When I was in japan, I heard the news that many Japanese and Korean people go to the Philippines to study English. After I heard the news, I became interested in the Philippines. Before that, the only things I know about the Philippines are banana and pineapple..
After I searched the Philippines in the internet, I learned that Filipinos are hospitable and they are very happy people.
I want to see Filipinos and I want to know Philippine culture more, and this idea became stronger and stronger on my mind.
When I was an elementary teacher, I was fulfilled at work. But I had a lot of stress. Working is very hard in Japan. Every one is very serious.
People say Japan is a stressful society. As of now, more than thirty thousand people committed suicide in Japan.
I thought that my life will end just being a teacher.
Of course being a teacher is a good job. Teaching and educating children is a respectful job because children plays a big part of the future of the country.
I only live my life once and it is  very precious. You also feel the same, right? So I decided to quit teaching and went to the Philippines.
To tell you the truth, my foreigner friends, an American guy and a Swiss guy who have been to the Philippines said that Filipino women or Filipinas are family-oriented and they are always concerned about family. So it makes me more interested. And I will be very happy if I get married to a Filipina. LOL


It’s very hard to live in other country

The first thing I was surprised with was when I came to the Philippines and found their high ability in English language. I can communicate in English. But….
When I watched a movie in a movie theater, many Filipinos laughed and enjoyed it, but me?
Just bitter smile :)
I can not understand the movie. Movie is still difficult to understand.
I decided to study English again and started to look for English teacher. My teacher was very kind and helped me a lot. For example, she helped to open a bank account, to apply for an internet connection, and how to pay my electric bill.
When I traveled to Cebu, I met a lot of kind people. I met people who work in Shangri-La Hotels and went to Karaoke together. When I walked around without reason, some guys invited me to play basketball. And they took me to a good beach in Mactan Island that most foreigners do not know yet.



I would like to repay Filipino kindness

I have a lot of memorable experiences in the Philippines. I’m really grateful. So how can I repay to Filipinos ?
Then I decided to make Philippine Channel.
I can find full-time job in the Philippines but I can not find part-time job. I think even some university students look for jobs but they can not find it.
I don’t own a company to pursuit profit. So I can not hire a lot of people. But I can ask few people to improve this blog together.
I heard minimum lease payments per day is around 500 peso in the Philippines. I am going to pay three times of it. This is my minimum lease payments per day. Therefore, I am looking for the someone who :
1. works hard
2. shows the talents / skills you have
3. wants to try new activities
I want to manage Philippine channel with the person above.
If you want to join me in managing this blog, check this URL …..
Just an example of what I am thinking is that they will help me improve my blog. Of course, I will be happy if my blog is improved. Then they get their payment and they can use it for their school expenses. I think they will be happy too.
I want to have a relationship that makes both of us feel happy…a win-win relationship.


By the way, what kind of website Philippine Channel is?

Philippine channel is a blog that introduce useful and interesting information like sightseeing, restaurant and food, etc to everyone all over the world.
Do you know what nationalities visit the Philippines ?
1st – Korean
2nd – American
3rd – Japanese
4th – Chinese
So I manage blogs in English, Korean language and Japanese language. Moreover, I ask writer to make Tagalog blog. If I get profit from these blogs, I want to share it to charity. For example,I want to support orphanage. I was a teacher so I like children :)


Thank you for reading to the end

I am a Japanese and I don’t know the Philippines that well yet. So I study about the Philippines more and more so I can share useful information to you.
I will be glad If you share this blog, or movie of Philippine channel through Facebook and/or Twitter. I also have a Facebook page. If you click “like” to the Facebook page, I will be happy.
Thank you for reading until the end
