Japan Treasure Hunters 


I have watched many metal detecting videos and one thing I noticed was there was a few people doing detecting in Japan.  So November of 2017, I decided to create my youtube channel Japan Treasure Hunters document my adventures.  Like the home page says treasure means different things to different people.  I am one of those that believe just being here in this incredible country is a treasure. To me, it is not about gold, silver, money or that elusive artifact but the journey of discovery is the ultimate treasure.


私は多くの金属探知ビデオを見てきましたが、日本で探知をしている人が数人いたことに気づきました。 そこで、2017年11月に、自分の冒険を記録したYouTubeチャンネルJapan TreasureHuntersを作成することにしました。 ホームページが言うように、宝は人によって異なることを意味します。 私はこの素晴らしい国にいるだけで宝物だと信じている人の一人です。 私にとって、それは金、銀、お金、またはそのとらえどころのないアーティファクトについてではありませんが、発見の旅は究極の宝物です。

Hi, I’m Josh. I’m one of the team’s videographers and its primary photographer. I shoot a lot of the footage and stills you see on the channel in Japan. Working with Jon and JTH is a lot of fun and getting to travel around and practice my hobby is wonderful. JTH has given me a chance to learn shooting video, both on the ground and in the air, and I’ve been able to have fun learning on the various excursions. I’m from Kentucky, originally, and have been in Japan for quite a while teaching.
