Why This Japanese Town Eats BEARS

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!)

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.

Please try to be nicer to Ryotaro, his face always seems a bit sad when you unleash the full force of British humor on his gentle Japanese soul :( It's hilarious but at the same time I can't help but think that Ryotaro doesn't really like it; i might be wrong, if so I apologize.

We love your videos and how you get out and and see Japan while providing an awesome dialogue. We're getting ready to move to the UK and are trying to find the same sort of channel related to living in the United Kingdom. All we found are people sitting in their living rooms and droning on in front of the camera for a half an hour which is frustrating. Can you recommend anyone that does videos like yours about living abroad in the UK? Thanks.

This is literally the real "Black Bear Diner", I guess. Aomori is a hidden gem. There are museums (Towada Museum and Aomori Museum - That's where artist Yoshitomo Nara is from), Osamu Dazai Museum if you like Japanese literature, Shuji Terayama Museum if you are into Japanese avant-garde poetry. If you wanna talk to your dead Grandpa, you can go visit Osorezan to see a Shaman. Ultra crystal clear Towada Lake is also a great spot to visit. Needless to say, seafood there is AMAZING. BTW, Aomori isn't the only place you can get bear meat. It's called Gibier in French (local "wild game meat"), and you can still find some exotic food throughout the country. It's not that popular, but if you find one, you should definitely try dear, bear, boar, etc.

Matagi, another thing that Golden Kamuy taught me. Most anime series are not true to the real world, but Golden Kamuy is really well researched and you can learn a lot of cool stuff about Hokkaido Ainu and hunting etc. Anyways, sreat video, as always. I'd like to try some of that meat one day, just to be able to say I did :D
