Abroad in Japan

14 days ago

In Japan's northern region of Aomori, the locals regularly eat bear meat. But why's it popular and how does it taste? We travel across Aomori to try 5 dishes and uncover why it has the shortest life expectancy of any prefecture in Japan. (And no it's got nothing to do with the bears!)

Abroad in Japan
Abroad in Japan 14 days ago
NOTIFICATION SQUAD: On our 200km journey around Aomori we ate our way through five local dishes. WHICH ONE do you want to try the most? Also, don't miss Ryotaro's absurd rap. He truly outdid himself this time. Jokes aside, it's good to be back on the road together. I always enjoy these little excursions and I hope you guys enjoy coming along the ride! (ESPECIALLY now Abroad in Japan is in 4k). Right, I'm off for a liquor breakfast.

Bear? HARD PASS . Not sure about this...I wonder how humane the kill was. Japan shoots bears....China bans them ;)

I used to watch this channel a few years ago, then I stopped and for some reason youtube recommended me this video today. I was shocked to see this guy again because he looks like he's aged a lot in a small period of time. What happened to him? Not hating on him just curious.

Having binged all of this channels videos over the last few days, I now feel empty and I don't really know what to do now. I forgot how to be productive. Also with every video I wanna return to Japan even more than I already did. I lived there as part of an exchange program for six months and apparently missed out on so many things... Go away covid, I want to travel again!

I just noticed a bunch of similarities between Aomori and where I'm from, Austria in Europe. We have a famous apple pie (Apfelstrudel), we have a lot of different kinds of alcohol (especially wine), there is all kinds of meat (including deer - no bears though), traditional food is often quite salty. And our life expectancy is 81 years. You might like it here! ;)
IronFreee Day ago
Loosing just 2 years of life expectancy to be able to eat ramen and pies whenever you want? Seams like a good deal to me.

Although I thought the weird meats was...really weird as an American, the fact that I'm orally allergic to apples leaves me to choose Boar as the one thing I'd try. Northern Japan looks so lovely and tranquil, I wonder if that's why it doesn't seem like many people film there compared to Tokyo/Kyoto/Osaka where thing's always something happening.

It's been about a week since I discovered this channel, and since then I've binge watched pretty much all the content since about mid 2016... Its been thoroughly enjoyable living through your adventures in a country I'd love to visit again - particularly in the middle of a British lockdown! Thanks for continuing to provide really interesting and engaging content, I look forward to keeping up to date. Also, as if I wasn't already hooked on Japan, an apple pie map would have sold me!

Great! I always wanted to travel to Japan, and (partly thanks to your excellent videos), I have finally booked my summer holidays in Japan. I'm watching all your videos to prepare for my trip. So I'll be painfully disapointed when I'll have to cancel due to COVID. ;-)
