    My dad has been to Japan, Korea, and China quite a few times for business. He said that Japan was the most fun. He told me that they work hard but play even harder, even on weekdays. They went out one night and his American colleague that went with him was a competitive drinker in college, so he could down an entire beer in about 3 seconds. The Japanese guys there were trying to learn how to do it and weren't about to let an American show them up. Two of the Japanese guys got so drunk trying to suck down a beer that fast that their pissed off wives had to come pick them up. One of the funniest things my dad has ever seen. He also said that they take their karaoke VERY seriously. He's got quite a few very interesting stories of his travels.

    So here is s story,
    In my english class we were learning christmas songs in different languages for whatever reason (We did dutch, Swedish, Traditional Chinese, and danish) and of coarse, Japanese. Here's why it was the best (These are the basic translations for Rudolph the RNR):
    Rudolph had a shiny nose
    Nobody liked him
    He cried every night
    Then one Christmas it was dark
    Santa decided Rudolph's nose was convenient (FUCKIN' CONVENIENT)
    Rudolph was useful.
    Yuh-huh.

    I can relate to your story on New Year's - when I was in Osaka, I asked a random guy on the street if he knew where I could find the next sushi restaurant - he just said come with me and ended up inviting me to a high class sushi Restaurant. Japanese people really are fantastic!

    I got back from a week in Japan on Sunday last. Thanks for your videos. I can't say I went to many places from your videos, or that they gave me specific inspiration, but what I can say is that they made me feel assured in my visit that that I'd be comfortable in Japan.
    I really was, and enjoyed it a lot. Keep up the videos!

    Actually your videos have sparked an interest, for my son and I to save up for our trip to Japan. We plan to spend atleast two weeks in Japan on our visit (whenever that is) Working on learning the language as much as we can, and always watching youtube about it. Thank you for your videos, they are very entertaining and informative AND inspiring!

    • Keyon Hutson
      Keyon Hutson 6 years ago +25

      Fun story about language in Japan: My parents went there before I was born (my dad was on a trip for karate), and there was a bus that was supposed to pick everyone up after a grueling journey up and down a mountain. My mom, of course, remained at the base of the mountain because she wasn't learning karate and sure as hell wasn't going up and down a mountain.
      Turns out they brought the bus up, and the whole point was to make them think there was more ahead of them then there actually was. So here's my mom, sitting and waiting for a bus that isn't coming, when a car pulls up and this lady rolls down the window. Neither of them speak a common language, and after figuring this out, the other woman just says "Karate? Karate?" And my mom said "Hai" which was the only world of Japanese she knew. And thanks to those two words, this woman managed to get my mom back to the hotel where everyone was staying.

    There's so much comedic relief in your videos. I can't remember the last time I've laughed so hard. Every kind of laugh from a chuckle, to knee slapping, crying, and/or peeing or dying laughter. What makes it so funny is, the marketing in Japan is taken very seriously and with so much pride in what they do (things that in the US or in the UK is hugely embarrassing or just absurd) is just so well done that you can't help but laugh. What I mean is, this type of laughter is just genuine hilarity. It's not in any way making fun of, offensive, or looking down on Japan. Although, some of of their marketing is a bit...well....weird and *sometimes* embarrassing, but for the most part, it's just funny. I'm not expressing myself quite as well as I want to, but I just want to say thank you for your hard work, and, cheers to Japanese marketing.

    Ever since I started learning about Japan in junior high, I've been consumed by a growing fascination with Japan as well as some other parts of Asia. I shall certainly visit one day. For now, I shall try and learn the language and more about the incredible culture. In fact, it was a Japanese lady (my professor) that gave me the inspiration and support to gain the self-belief and extra boost to graduate from my university with good grades. She probably doesn't know but my whole class truly loved her and I owe her so much for her incredible heart.

It wasn't good for much except playing this weird game that I forget how it went, but it was very, very kawaii.
    The key to going to Japan is, get someone else to pay for it. US Army, US Olympic Committee, doesn't matter.

    back in the day when I touring with UK bands in Japan, there was a cool little club called Edge End in Shibuya. It was proper tiny, no bigger than a council flat bedroom, with a bar at one end, a tiny DJ booth and a wall which every famous 90s indie band had signed. Mr Endo ran it and apparently I was the only person he served free tequila shots to, ever.

    #1 Especially true! Many people so easy to talk to and help. One instance, my wife and I were on a train that was diverted because of heavy rainfall. We didn't know where to go, and a schoolboy who was already late for is classes, took the time to show us how to get to the train we needed to get to and even walked us to the station. If you go, BRING OMIYAGE to show your appreciation to people who help you! We wish we did!

    Mate I think you've been in Japan too long. Karaoke has made it's way around the globe. I live in Ireland and I have been to several Karaoke parties just like this at Japanese or Korean karaoke bars,. I have been to karaoke parties in homes with philopinos. It's not just Japan, and yes I see this video is from 2014 but even then this was true.

    Going to Japan soon with friends. This video really did give me a good heads up on what to expect. Bright flashy lights, tall buildings, mind numbing commercials and randomness. lol.

    I think that Japanese marketing is so
    Eccentric, colourful and exciting (that's another thing )
    Is giving the commitments you must give to work and the removal of overall childhood joy and it's relatively frowned upon to act in this manner in many situations
    (I am not Japanese and do not know anybody who is these are just from my observations )

    My great Uncle Scott was a POW during WW2. He was piloting a bomber plane and was shot down, parachuted out and was found hiding under his parachute. Almost 2 years later, he came home. He was forced to endure in humane living circumstances, and weighed 100 lbs, but survived and did not hold a grudge. He returned to Japan in order to forgive, at the age of 95, during 2016. I’m going to Japan in a few weeks!

    I'd love to visit. my only concern is the necessity to learn the language. although I'd love to learn, I'm not great at learning languages, sadly.

    It comes down to trust, in Japan you can meet total strangers and you don't feel threatened or worried about your safety, therefore partying with them comes easily.
    People are generally very nice, there is however a minority of middle aged racist Japanese guys who don't like foreigners and show it in the funniest of ways. It should be noted that they are very tiny minority and they come off as odd, not threatening.
