    Sushi is an iconic Japanese cuisine beloved by nearly all. But what’s it like to own a sushi restaurant in Japan? I spent a week with the owner of a top sushi restaurant to uncover life behind the scenes and discover the one thing NEVER to do in front of a sushi chef.

      NOTIFICATION SQUAD: Now I know the secrets to owning and running a sushi restaurant, get ready for "Abroad Sushi", the sushi restaurant London doesn't deserve. Thank you to Satoshi and his wonderful staff for letting me run around the restaurant for a couple of days! We met about five years ago at a party and often talked about making a video together in the years since. As the years passed and we just never got around to it, I never expected we’d actually make it. But being stuck indoors for many months this year ignited some resolve and I vowed this would be the year we filmed it - no more excuses. So unsurprisingly I’m delighted we finally got to hang out and film the video together. I hope you enjoy the video and remember if there’s something you really want to do, don’t just talk about it. Actually get on with it! It’s so easy to become your own worst enemy. Now back to planning my sushi restaurant.

    3. SancLunatic

      Have you done a video of a sake brewery?

    4. Roly

      I thought the chef was like early 20's then he said he's turning 36!? WHAT

      1. Abroad in Japan

        I know right!

    5. Jim Ketting Olivier

    6. Kara Canis

      As much as I love Bluefin its endangered. I hope they dont fish it to extinction. Is JApan like watching the numbers? Not shaming anyone I was just curious.


      radioactive wasteland.

    8. Re:ZeroReaper

    10. GoldFishBoy1337

      My gosh Chris, this was an incredible video! Informative, entertaining, just fantastic. Every time I watch your videos it makes me want to go to Japan more and more. Maybe I'll even be able to get around to this place!

    12. David Liao

      Its Japan, I am sure they can come up with a Wasabi grinding machine cmon.

    13. Truonghuynh Minhvuong

      Poor dog I liked my own commet how sad.

    14. 경상도말씨연구회

      I feel sad that JP government is planning to release contaminated water by nuclear. I want to have sushi for long

    15. Le Rédacteur

      Wow, I am glad Satoshi has the foresight to ensure a future supply of fish by planting trees! Amazing. No wonder his father put him there. Wise.

    16. Mark Wuahlbuargg

      Dammit... You shouldn't watch this when you're broke as fuck. Really makes you wanna eat sushi.

    17. Audi Malvin

      damn, i will never waste wasabi ever again

    18. Supreme Repairs

      ಅದ್ಭುತವಾದ ಸುಂದರವಾದ ವಿಡಿಯೋ ❤️😍 amazing and beautiful video 👌😋🍰🎉

    19. Luke Hebert

      Chef: "The most important part of being a sushi chef is reading the customer." *two seconds later* "Chris, you should try this fattiest part of the fish." Chris, he's throwing shade.

      1. A7mAD579

        He just sized up his customer well :p.

    20. Snuskedundret

      Welp I need sushi tomorrow

    21. Snuskedundret

      Wow, those fish markets are so cool. I'd like to visit one some day.

    22. Galina G.

      is it common for Japanese restaurants to be closed off with no windows?

    23. Justin Vidal

      I’m eating 711 food while watching this

    24. Riley

      I heard it’s as “A few years ago when I moved to the city of senpai...”

    27. Дониер Эргашев

      Satoshi san made genius example. "If forest sufffers, the ocean suffers and soon we wont be able to eat sushi" and his company planting trees for whatever reason is great example of buisnessman understanding the environment and looking into the future

    28. Holgast

      I have never heard of anyone taking the toppings off and putting it in soy sauce...

    29. unemployed64

      nice double handshake from Satoshi Ueno san at the end. means so much more than a "regular" handshake.

    30. Luke Skywalker Jedi Knight

      The guy in the thumbnail looks like he wants to poison the camera man with the sushi.

    31. kisuna mayan

      me: i put soy sauce first in my mouth next to sushi

    32. JapanischErfahren - einfach online Japanisch lernen

      anything japan related is so freaking overrated

    35. Joe Oppman

      First vid I’ve seen of yours, keep up the great content man, I was so intrigued throughout the whole vid!!

    36. Lawrence L.

      Everything in Japan is expensive, uggh. I'd rather eat Chinese food in China. I'm losing my appetite watching that chef touch my food.

    37. Colton Henry

      12:57 Who tf does that?

    38. The4thaggie

      Does anyone know the name of the music played at around 17:12?

    42. Illi Zizon

      Sushi, one of the most exaggerated food in the world. The chefs speak about it like they ve found the world formula.

    43. eddie tiongson

      Why are sushi chefs allowed to handle food with bare hands while other restaurants are not allowed by the Health Department especially in the US.

    44. Shiralyn

      why am i watrching such stuff when im hungry? >.< nothing beats some good sushi!

    45. ShebaLover333

      The chef is 36 and looks like THAT?! secret to youth is become a master sushi chef

    46. Unsuccessful

      It needs to be so cool to own a sushi restaurant.

    47. Nat Helm

    54. Rob Rybin

      how long does the 20k buy at the sushi market last at the restaurant? how often is he buying that quantity?

    55. Jose Medina

    72. Eric858

      i'm so glad he added the part that the health of the forest is linked with the health of the ocean and fish. This is an environmental topic of the North American Pacific Northwest as well.


      Почему это у меня в рекомендациях? Warum kriege ich das als Empfehlung?

    74. DFS Notify

      I'm from an E.U. country and also used to live in Australia. I saw so many Chinese restaurants in the Western countries suddenly turning into Japanese Sushi restaurants just to make more money. As this chef said, you need at least 2 to 3 years to learn the basic as a suhi chef. Some people I know said they went to a Sushi restaurant and they didn't like it. I guess they went to those fake ex-Chinese Sushi places. Pity...If they only ate at those authentic ones like in this video, their opinion would have been different. Notice : I'm not saying you must be a Japanese to become a good sushi chef. One of the best sushi I've ever eaten outside Japan was in SaiGon/Vietnam and the Chef was a local Vietnamese. But this guy was properly trained by a Japanese chef for some years (unlike those ex-Chinese restaurant's fake Sushi chefs who never got a proper training.) I hope we can find more authentic sushi restaurants outside of Japan, served by a local chef who got a proper Japanese style training 🙂.

      auctions aren't all that much different anywhere in the world, are they? well in dutch flower auctions they don't yell, they just have a big clock and a button for everyone to press at the right time

    91. Hyun Woo Ma

      good luck eating radio active seafood.

    92. Xyzen

      I can understand how peeling it feels like youre punching the chef... He just did all that just to get it like that, and you just peel it off? Just eat some rice with some fish if youre gonna do that

      1. brick wall

        Raw rice with fish and lots of Soy

    93. Xyzen

      Not even 10 secs in and im reminded that japan takes their sushi very VERY seriously...

    94. Darketernal_666

      My question is, how are you supposed to add the additional soy sauce prroperly if you're not allowed to dip it?
