Emma Felice aka Tokidoki Traveller is a YouTuber, Host at Tokyo Creative, Twitch Streamer and all-round Nintendo gamer girl.

Representing Australia in the most important category of “J-Vlogger”, this Paul Rudd-loving former emo from Brisbane is what we all need in our life. 

She’s my equal favourite YouTuber in Japan (along with Chris Broad), and has given both Lauren and I a perspective on Japanese life, that no one else has. We couldn’t help but want to pick her brain on our latest trip to Japan. 

In this episode we covered:

  • Loving Paul Rudd

  • Expat life in Japan

  • Emo phases

  • Finding her voice

  • What she loves about Japan

  • Her creative process
