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.

I am now struck with that hollow feeling inside as if I've just watched an jaw dropping Anime and it's now finished. Watching this channel go from British bloke in a flat in Japan with one camera to all of this awesome mind blowing top quality content has been a sheer joy! I have loved every minute of it and I can't wait to see what Chris has planned for us next! Bring on Journey Across Japan 3! Thanks Chris and the team you guys are like a magic!!! Oh and thumbs up if you want to see Chris take the life expectancy food tour! Hmm what to do now...? I know! Time to go and watch Abroad Perspective!

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! ;)
