    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!)

    1. Abroad in Japan

      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.

      1. Marcus Draper

        I really want to go to Japan and become a teacher there but I don't know how, I am young and have a few years left in school but what road would I have to take to have the required skills,

      2. xNico

        Congrats on 2M!!

    3. burningphoneix

      Eating bears is such a cliche in anime that I assumed Japanese people just eat bear all the time.

    4. Mikias Leulseged

      I have never had apple pie in my life and would love to have one.

    5. Ash

      I think the title of the video should’ve been, “I Ate Bambi’s Dead Mom Raw.”

    6. welcome to the rice fields

      two years less for eating tasty things.... totally worth it

    7. Swldn's Story

      Ryotoro just took the piss out of u in his video 🤣🤣

      All Apple lovers from now on must now make a pilgrimage to Aomori to do the apple pie map tour.

    11. kani_mar

      I don’t see a reason not to eat bears... they probably damn tasty.

    13. Kdan

      Seriously food in Japan looks so unappealing, except curry:-)

    14. Sarah Fenstermaker

      The apple pie map is the equivalent of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail in the US. 🤣 Cheers from abroad! 🥃

    15. Ichidoodles 010101

      honestly, I'll try all the dishes featured :3 they look tasty

    16. Joss Nguyen

      You're so mean to Ryotaro :(

    19. Alasdair Trench

      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!

    20. uglyorc

      I need a Natsuki rap right now

    21. Langa Makes Music

      "I ate Bambi raw" I have a gutter mind so that didn't paint the prettiest image in my mind.

    22. Brendon B

      I'll try it all

    23. Les Notestine Jr

      I look so forward to your videos Chris...it is a joyous moment when I see an Abroad in Japan notification in my notification bar.....thank you for the good entertainment an knowledge your videos bestow upon us...and your friendship with Ryotaro is one that everyone should have..I've ran outta nice things to say no so bug off an make us more videos

    24. Rotcrawler

      9:12 Texans:.... Yeehaw fuck bambi lemme get that deer boi!

    25. Superluminal Speed

      "oh hello there" sounds familiar...

    26. Duskraven377

      Difinitely the cider and apple pie for me. Though I won’t turn down a serving of deer sashimi

    27. Benjamin Damien

      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. ;-)

    28. Nemo Amphiprion

      Apple Pie Maps. Still better than Apple Maps.

    29. JPS 3ESOA

      #ASKABROAD Chris, what is the japanese people's view on WWII, and, is it tought in school?

    34. musicality

      Hi , just a suggestion but could you do a video about Muslim friendly restaurants in Japan for people who are Muslims that want to also experience Japanese food ?

    35. piziskewl

      Ryotaro sold me on the deer.

    36. Razmi Ihsan

      Ryotaro makes the video more entertaining. Like adding seasoning to meats that about to be cooked.

    37. Giraffinator

      There's only one thing worse than bears, and that's ROBOTS _and guess what there's a lot of in Japan...._

    38. Uncle Sasuke

      I love these videos so much! The humour, beautiful shots, interesting locations, and respect for the culture are all perfect. I hope to see you continue making these for many years to come.

    41. Iceman

      People are surprised people at bear? I guess i just live in the south lmao

    42. Kk Creativity

      Literally my role model

    43. Intishar Alam Misbahul

      Are there any cat areas or island or something in Japan? If so, why don't you go there?

    44. Atharva Kokaje

      This was an amazing video❣️ And heartiest congratulations on hitting 2 million subs🤩🤘🏼🔥

    58. Francis Charette Migneault

      So basically, Aomori is a Japanese-ish Canada. Good to know.

    59. Aseel Said

      that apple curry looks so good!

    60. Fruiitpunchsamurai

      Mista is correct

    61. 1r1shm0n1

      Apple pie.

    62. Takara Hayashi

      the only time i had bear was in a can... doubt it taste the same fresh lol. Also I notice they put gelatine in their apple pies... I need to try that.

    63. Bacon


    64. WifeBot

      I want to try that apple curry.... yum

    65. Smartfork

      The only food from Japan I wouldn't eat was horse. I can eat almost any type of food but I grew up raising horses so it would just feel weird for myself if I ate something that I saw as a friend growing up.

    66. Rhayr Harry

      Super super bitchy mode On. Hahaha

    67. April Rants

      Ryotaro is adorable

    68. derMemory

      Sounds like Aomori is great place to live

    69. Marseilles Vieux

      I want to try them all! 🤤

    70. shawn purcell

      Do bears have trichinosis in Japan

    71. Plebasaurus Rekt

      Still think the next journey should be called ”Chris-crossing japan”

      1. dannyLEE

        @Plebasaurus Rekt actually it´s the R.Z.A-Taro

      2. Plebasaurus Rekt

        @dannyLEE Rissotaro* ;)

      3. dannyLEE

        with rapping Ryotaro

    72. eka nanda

      Fun fact : even though Aomori people has the lowest average life expectancy in Japan, they're still way higher than the other countries have. According to the government's most recent statistics, the average life expectancy for men in the prefecture is 78.67 years, and 85.93 for women

    73. Hans TheGamer

      I guess Aomori is the promise land of Exusia

    74. ash0787

      I like how chris is actually respectful of the country whereas connor cdawgva not so much !

    75. ash0787

      Are you at the town that has the dolphin statue ? I found that on google earth ages ago. There was also this photo taken from some sort of tower / lighthouse / mountain around there which had awesome view ( some sort of tourist spot ). Also found this video on youtube years ago of this seaside village that was really cool but its one of those things where I will never find it again, very quiet village that had a lot of old wooden objects / old stuff.

    77. Siffe 333

      Bears are super avoidable, you just have to make yourself known, for example my grandma always talks to herself loudly to avoid meeting one and she lives in a place where they sometimes leave the forest and walk around her lawn.

    78. Gusti Subagja

      no kidding frut price is so ridicilous in japan or maybe is because its sub tropis country btw i live in tropis country

    90. insurgent of the watermelon rebellion

      honestly, the only thing i knew about aomori is that yoshie shiratori escaped from a prison there.

    91. insurgent of the watermelon rebellion

    94. Slyder81

      I'd be more interested in trying the Deer sashimi. That apple pie looked so good too! I'd definitely try about a dozen of the variations! :D

    95. Lars Sandgaard

      I would like to taste the curry :)

    96. Varim Kadas

    97. Kawehi Cabuzel

      The 2M looks so clean

    98. Shee Vang
