A video blog or video log, usually shortened to vlog /vlɒɡ/, is a form of blog for which the medium is video and is a form of web television popular on the video sharing platform YouTube.
JVlog refers to a community of video bloggers, known as vloggers, that live in Japan. The JVlog community is made up of foreign and Japanese nationals that make videos for YouTube. The JVlog community has many get togethers across Japan throughout the year. The biggest parties being the cherry blossom viewing party, called Hanami, in Tokyo in the early spring, and the yearly get together, also in Tokyo, in late summer or early fall. The Tokyo get togethers bring in over 100 people each year with some guests flying in from as far away as America and Europe just to join in. Other notable get together is the Kansai meet up, usually in early winter, in Kobe.
jvlog.org is a platform for aggregating Japan-related vlogs, but we also encourage content from other surrounding areas such as Korea, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, China, the Philippines, etc.

By uploading materials to any Forum or submitting any materials to us, you automatically grant (or warrant that the owner of such materials expressly granted) us a perpetual, royalty-free, irrevocable, nonexclusive right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, publicly perform and display, create derivative works from and distribute such materials or incorporate such materials into any form, medium, or technology now known or later developed throughout the universe.

When participating in a Forum, never assume that people are who they say they are, know what they say they know, or are affiliated with whom they say they are affiliated with in any chat room, message board, or other user- generated content area. Information obtained in a Forum may not be reliable, and it is not a good idea to trade or make any investment decisions based solely or largely on information you cannot confirm. We cannot be responsible for the content or accuracy of any information, and shall not be responsible for any trading or investment decisions made based on such information.
We will immediately terminate any account which we believe is being used to transmit, or is otherwise connected with, any spam or other unsolicited bulk email. In addition, because damages are often difficult to quantify, if actual damages cannot be reasonably calculated, then you agree to pay us liquidated damages of $2 for each item of spam or unsolicited bulk email transmitted from, or otherwise connected with, your account. Otherwise you agree to pay our actual damages, to the extent such actual damages can be reasonably calculated.
