    Well guys, IF you could try one dish at the market that we either ate or showed on screen, WHICH one would you go for?
    - I have to say, the Grilled Eel on a skewer stole the show for me.

      I actually never liked dried fish like mackeral, because it looks dry and unappearly. Plus it is a boring traditional homecooked meal with rice and pickles, to me it is a world of boring. But after your juicy presentation, you have shine a new light on this very common fish. I believe I must venture there to get my taste of aboard in japn. Thank you Chris from Abroad in Japan Channel.

    First, we were blessed with Natsuki.
    Then, Chris used a Comment Stone to evolve Ryotaro in to Risottoro.
    I thought it couldn't get any better, but after an extended period of time with Sharla, I realise I was wrong. What an utterly delightful person she is.

    It's a pity you weren't able to explore the city - Kanazawa is magical. You'll have to go back some time. However, it was a mater stroke to film the market - it's a great market.

    I'm curious why the woman was mad, maybe because of the filming or if she thought Sharla was like in the way or something haha? Is that a common occurrence in japan for some people to do that or be against filming or whatever it was she was upset about?

    Chris can you make a graph and rank, the total amount of debt in Millions of Yen/USD these "Fish Market" had to pay for PR each year for the past 5 years. Because I don't see a way, the street vendors can have a sustainable business model selling mochi for 300-500 yen + everything else.
    I don't want Abroad in Japan to suck up all the money from the locals and line their wallets, by the time we readers or viewers go there, only zombies mama and zombie mochi existed. Because they have become a desert town or charge us tourist an extra-ordinary amount.
    I believe a A3 Meat skewer for Y1000 is too expensive, I will pay Y320 for a cheapass A3 Meat skewer, with less fat and more beef/protein.
    Honestly, Chris, what can you get for Y1000, I can get a hot breakfast with soup, rice, beef, pork, kimchi, cold barley tea and a half boiled egg for Y560. I will have Y440. Let say I want to drink with my friends and get a tall beer at a Tax-Free Place, thats Y118. I still have Y322.
    I can take my tall beer to a Y300 private onsen and spend my night doing nothing, but enjoy the glorious Mushi coming from the Mountain Hotspring Piped Layline.
    For Y22, you might be able to get a blanket at a second hand store and play with some fluffy cat before sleeping in the truck of your support car!! "Chris from Abroad in Japan" "I challenege you to live like a Homeless Person for a day and a night in which ever large city you will go next!! "To live a joyful life with only Y1000, include transportation, 3 meals, a bathhouse, an anti-gravity massage chair equivalent, meat skewer, fried chicken katsu, a beer, a small cup of sake, a smart takeaway from a famous sushi on rails express train chain (try some 5 or 10 Yen sushi), to do all this in front of the Camera" We want to see it for the longest time! Live a bit Chris! I want to see you sticking out your neck for us viewers and for yourself for once more, before coming to Hong Kong and taking the high life for 2 weeks, please don't bring family, just you and cameraman crew, offer not for ladies. No Facilities for her, on a cool yacht. The Asian Meka for super cool Jame Bond type yacht.

    They recently introduced cotton candy grapes in Australia too. The first few taste amazing and really do taste like cotton candy but then after that your tongue adapts and they taste just like normal grapes and leave you wondering why you payed extra for them

    I'm just gonna ask what most travelers are afraid to ask when planning to go to Japan: How are the restrooms specially those who have IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). It's great that you share so much places to eat, but, those suffering IBS may have concerns more than other travelers. Thanks

    • peko
      peko 3 months ago +1

      Train stations even the smaller ones have restrooms. There are some that have both the western toilet and the squat toilet so look at the door which may have a picture of a western toilet on it if that's the case. Department Stores or malls are a safe bet for public restrooms. In places like food markets like this, there's a public restroom available for use. Just have to look for it. Most public restrooms don't have hand dryers so bring your own mini-towel or handkerchief to wipe your hands dry.
