IRL Twitch streamer ‘JakeNBake’ had an emotional farewell moment as his final stream in Tokyo came to an end.

Jake, who had spent three years in Japan, was relocating back to Los Angeles to be with his family and friends and get some more foundation in the United States.

As his final stream came to a close, the emotional streamer thanked his viewers for being a major part of his life these past few years.

“Thanks for helping me get to where I am right now, whatever stage this may be,” he said. “Hopefully we go back and this is the right move – to get our foundation and continue to grow. Not only as just a streamer, but in life.”

Jake’s time in Asia has included some really cool moments such as experiencing Halloween in Tokyo with a man dressed as Dr Disrespect and hanging out with fellow streamers like HAchubby.

“Thanks for being part of the journey,” he added with sadness in his tone. “Just remember this is not like a ‘goodbye’ to Japan, we’ll be back,” he sobbed.

“It’s just weird to leave behind a pretty big chunk of life, a big chapter of everything,” he added.

As Jake explained in a YouTube video in March, the long story short of why he decided to leave Japan was to be with his best friends and family.

“Long term for the stream stability-wise, it’s going to be the right decision,” he said. “Instead of living in Tokyo because situationally a lot of things have changed in the past few years since I came here, I think it’s better to be back home, have a home base and travel from there.”

As he explained, his original plan was to move to Japan for one year and go back, but things changed when he started streaming and it changed his life.

Hopefully, JakeNBake can return to travel the world on his adventures soon.
