      @Haziel x Choosing what soup base the customer gets when they order mystery flavour Ramen could be done by a dice roll.

    The more I watch these, the more I appreciate how Natsuke is so damn *clever* with the English he knows. Let's review some of Natsuke's greatest one-liners:
    - "Nobody monkey" : a perfectly logical portmanteau of "nobody here" and "no monkeys," upped by the fact he opted to become Somebody Monkey to entertain his friends (and unsuspecting livestream viewers).
    - "Spider trash" : what could better describe the anger we feel at the inconsiderate way spiders string their webs right where we'll walk into them?
    - "Let's cooking!" : the off-kilter syntax and goofy enthusiasm perfectly matches the funny and haphazard guest "perk" of a lone rice cooker in an empty cabin.
    - "Fucking electric!" : succeeds in both cursing the electric sign that burnt him, and a sarcastic British slang response describing something boring or worth missing.
    The most that an average language learner can hope is to get their point across, but Natsuki does it no problem and adds a stroke of genius to boot.

      ​@Abroad in Japan Well... Those are not exactly empty. There's authentic air inside, and that's... something.
      What's more, this air was used in creation of your epic studio, doesn't it make it worth 100 yen?
      Alternatively, you could just say that you're selling disappointment, which also shouldn't count as 'nothing'. Come, get your own disappointment! Just 100 yen! Cheap like a magic~!

    This is truly spectacular! The vision in your head is idyllic and seeing this come to fruition is incredible and exactly what I want to see in Japan. The grimy back alleyways with graffiti, the neon lights and lanterns…. just wow! I would spend all of my time in there! The designers earned every penny with this phenomenal job! I absolutely love it and wish I could see it in person! 😍

    You have been the catalyst for my aspects of my life. I learned how to cook Japanese food better. I learned Japanese…. Well, (learning).
    Even though I am from Arizona, and live vicariously through your videos, you have been the reason that my first trip out of the states, simply must be Japan.
    Thank you, and I cannot wait to see what you do with your new set.
    /cheers, my friend.

    This video just appeared in my recommendations. I had watched several of your videos over the last few weeks including some on this set. It looked so real that I wondered if you had made an arrangement with a ramen shop to film there during closing hours.
    I think this is an absolutely amazing set and a very creative idea to film videos here. Congratulations!

    Congrats on your amazing new set, Chris! Can't wait to see all the new videos made here, it's gonna be freaking awesome! Personally I feel like you gotta start an Abroad in a Pan cooking show or at least do some food-themed challenges in that iconic Ramen shop of yours. 😁

    OMFG! I have been watching several of your videos recently in no particular order and I had no idea this was a set! Upon initially seeing it, I thought to myself "Wow what a cool Blade Runner-esque ramen shop, I wonder how he got them to let him record in there on a regular basis!" (having been asked not to take photos in shops in Japan several times when I was there.) Also, how did you explain this to your landlord?
    I am truly gob-smacked! This is just incredible! What an inspiration for nerds (like me). I am in the process of turning my basement into Moonbase Alpha from Space: 1999 (quite the opposite of what you've done here!) Would you mind sharing how much you spent on it? I imagine quite a lot, but whatever the amount, it was well worth it. I wish you many successful years recording in this great space!

    Hi Chris - set looks truly amazing! I know this is the foodie in me speaking, but it would be really cool to have some cooks/chefs in to make something (doesn’t have to be ramen haha!) I’m sure you could steal some cooking ware from Tokyo Len’s camping supply!! 😉😂 All the best! Hoping you still have a very merry Christmas! ✨🎄 ✨ps: decking out the set in Christmas decor/lights with friends could also be a lot of fun. Also going out to find a real Christmas tree is loads of fun! Important to end the day with hot spiced apple cider. ☺️

    Amazing set!!! Feels like you can film a movie there! Is an awesome set for very interesting interviews ! I love it! As a viewer rod your channel since (can’t remember because it’s been too long) I’m truly happy to see you accomplish this! This is another level!

    Guys! I have been in Japan, and as far as accuracy of this build goes, I can only say it's spot on - because in Japan there IS ramen. Honestly awesome set though, can't wait for content filmed here.

    Much love!!! I’ve been watching for some 5 years now and the content keeps getting better and better. I even got my dad to be a fan and he also regularly watches now. Here’s to many more years of Abroad in Japan!!

    How about a Doctor Jelly commercial in "Blade Runner" scene style (with Sharla as a replicant)? Congratulations Chris... no one deserves it less.

    Hey Chris, I was watching Joey's video about your set and I came up with a video series idea I don't think you've done yet: In the next year, you should try to go to every festival in japan, even the small obscure ones in small obscure towns. I think it'd be very fun to watch, specially if you do it in the format you do your usual trips where you take Natsuki or other guests.

    I'm so amazed by the studio and I'm not even there, I bet you would feel like some character of a movie if you were in there
    Btw Pete and Natsuki as ramen chefs are hilarious I definitely would be a regular if they had a ramen shop

    I've been watching you since I was 13 and I just recently started university, I guess my question would be do any japanese people recognise you in public, if so what was the strangest interaction? Love the content and good luck with the new studio!
