    It's hilarious how hugging is considered a bit awkward but touching stranger's stomachs is just fine

      @Waku Waku Idk man, hugging is like expressing affection since you do more body contact. Prodding, depending on how you do it, can be seen as being playful. I mean come on, compared to shouting "fucker" to random stranger like it's normal in the west, prodding is the least of our worry.

    I’d love to visit Japan, but as someone prone to eating disorders I ruled out moving there long ago. I know it’s normal to point out weight gain there, but that would send me spiralling back into anorexia very quickly.

    As of the time of me commenting this, I have lost 30 kilos, I’m Filipino and I’m currently 16, everyone who saw me always became an expert at losing weight, it got annoying but I didn’t care, but i did lose the weight because almost a year ago I became extra conscious of my health and realized that i wanted to live long and live my dreams, my weight was probably gonna prevent that so i started losing weight, I’m not on my goal yet but I’m almost there

    Amazing, my experience living in Japan was the complete opposite. I am a skinny dude that lost a dangerous amount of weight living in Japan for 4 years. I commuted 1+ hour to work every day (one way) including a 20 minute walk, a 30 minute train ride (standing), and a 15 minute bike ride. Combine that with small portions at restaurants and a small unusable kitchen, with very small refrigerator… I felt like I was always operating at a calorie deficit

    • RiRin Desuyo
      RiRin Desuyo Year ago

      @Organ HARVESTER Thankfully I wasn't that fat to have issues with the body while doing so. Now I'm on my normal weight levels and I maintain it via the same activities along with some recreational activities from time to time (swimming mostly). But I get your point, the extra weight will definitely put stress onto your knees (if you're form is wrong) if you're really overweight.
      Can't really comment on that since I thankfully didn't reach that big (just had really low stamina), but I do say it's important to develop the exercise activity (swimming, jog etc...) a habit first. The main roadblock for many is likely consistency or motivation to continue doing it. Once something is a habit you get that consistency part done which helps alot as it's not a chore anymore and your mind doesn't really think about it much.

    • Organ HARVESTER
      Organ HARVESTER Year ago +2

      @RiRin Desuyo If you are totally out of shape and possibly very fat, jogging can seriously be "inneficient" ask your doctor about the shocks to the knees and intestines. It's better to do aquagym or just swimming and biking (not motorbike obviously)

    • RiRin Desuyo
      RiRin Desuyo Year ago

      @Max Goldberg You don't need to go full exercise mode, the key part is to slowly make it your habit. I in the past hated jogging or any cardio in general, I couldn't survive in the gym for 2 weeks. I'm working as a software engineer so like you my physical activity at work was low.
      One thing I did was instead of jogging, I started to just walk a bit more everyday in a park nearby where I live before going home. Overtime it became a habit of mine and before I knew it I was walking miles without issues and then I started slowly jogging on weekends until it also became a habit. It also feels pretty good after such activities when you get back home and makes it pretty easy to sleep early as your body is tired.

    Chris, I love your channel! I've discovered it recently and I can't stop watching.
    I have started learning Japanese a few months ago due to the love for a certain band and I've been trying to consume anything Japan related.
    Your channel is very informative and fun, I love your sense of humour and the issues you've been adressing. It's a really enjoyable way of learning about the Japanese culture.

  • That's_What_SHE_Said!

    When I was in Japan in 2004, I couldn't find escalators anywhere! And definitely not elevators that were suitable for human travel. There were stairs and more stairs! The only escalator I found was at FujiTV (or was it NTV?) that was so steep and terrifying, that when it suddenly stopped, we all almost fell down like dominos. I found the country very much inaccessible to handicapped needs. I had difficulty with stairs because my knees bend backwards, and now I am using a wheelchair because the issue has been complicated by degenerative joints. Has it changed at all since?

      @Electro-Cute I don’t think you can speak for Sweden as a whole when you say that they are all sensitive to weight issues. After all, Pewdiepie is Swedish and he went on an on about how disgusting Jake Paul’s friend was just because he was fat. You and your close circle may be sensitive to weight issues, but no country is full of nothing but kind and open-minded people. And I’m not picking on the other commenters because they are jokingly demeaning their own countries rather than trying to put them on a pedestal.

      There's nothing more likely to make me not do something, than to blindly demand of me and lecture me.
      Especially when, not A until you B, doubly so when A affects the person demanding of me. My inner spite will let us both starve. I once had a mentor tell me it in a telling way, "Most people reluctantly get forced to fight and do so to win. But you, you get forced you fight and will 110% toss self-preservation out the window as long as it means the challenger loses. It makes you a dangerous enemy to have, particularly to yourself."
      Took me years and some drastic life changes to change my mentality.
      But I legit would be more likely to do something if fucking children were poking me and mocking me. Because there is no demand to change, but rather the truth of, "you made this decision, we simply feel the need to loudly observe it." Because there is no external demand I do something I don't want to, it doesn't trigger that hyper-defiant part of me. Because at the end of the day, that hyper-defiant part of me would say, "fuck you, I'll make the change when I fucking decide to." Which ironically, is all the weird indirect shaming highlights, my own mentality.

      @半蔵まさし there is an ongoing problem with doctors diagnosing weight-related problems and prescribing dieting and then it turns out weight had nothing to do with it, anything from pre-existing issues, inflammations, cancer, even saying issues are caused by obesity when the obesity was caused by the meds curing the issues. While excess weight causes issues or favours issues, doctors often end up using it as a be all end all cause, ignoring any other possibility.
      I mean, tell my mother doctors are supposed to know what's right, when she was told to just lose weight for three issues than turned to be ovarian cancer, labyrinthitis and heart issues she has had well before she was even close to overweight.

    On the topic, my body mass index is 23, which is considered "normal/good". Yet all my life i have been looked upon as if i was a starving and/or had some sort of illness or eating disorder. And whenever i visited someone, they would always offer me food (which is quite normal not only here but in the majority of countries in the world) but always added a comment like "here have some food, you seem underweight" or "have some of this that i just cooked, you look VERY thin, you should eat more".

    Something I find hilarious is that I am currently a Korean ama rikishi, sumo wrestler in the International Sumo Federation. The first time I went to Japan in order to meet my girlfriends family we were on a train in Kyoto and an elderly woman asked me, I assume as a joke, if I did sumo wrestling. I responded yes. She then perked up and started talking to me about how she actually enjoyed watching and would often travel to watch bashos live at the Kokugikan in Tokyo. I find it mildly hilarious and somewhat sad that as soon as you do something like Sumo, very traditional and ingrained in the Japanese culture, you stop being a joke and suddenly transform into this really interesting person.
    She was very polite though, almost reminded me of my own grandmother, so I was glad to talk more about it, even though I barely understood Japanese and my girlfriend had to translate most of it.

    I double took at the stomach prodding initially shocked, then remembered this one time in a local Asian restaurant I consumed this massive bowl of vegetable noodles. The cook was a tiny little lady who came to see if I had enjoyed the meal, I expressed gratitude and extreme fullness to which she joyfully replied "oooh I can see!" Putting one hand on my back, one on my stomach and jiggling it around with force. Bizarre but hillarious, I know what she means and honestly she's not wrong! 😂

    Wow, during my years in Japan I found it absolutely impossible to gain weight. I had to stop at McDs for a Saturday lunch of Big MAc, Filet-o-Fish, and fries just to maintain a tolderable level of saturated fats in my system (at least by American standards). I only really put on weight after I returned to the U.S. and kept eating the volume of food I had in Japan while driving absolutely everywhere.

      @Non Filios Tuos Videbis Vacillantes if Hawai’i wasn’t stolen why did usa made the “United States Public Law 103-150, informally known as the Apology Resolution” in 1993 apologize for invading and stealing the islands of hawaii and overthrowing the Queen?

      @Non Filios Tuos Videbis Vacillantes they STOLE our land. Hawai’i was a country. We even had a Queen. I wouldn’t be surprised if you don’t know this...I’m pretty sure they only teach this part of history here in Hawai’i. If you think I’m lying then come here in Hawaii and I’ll show you the palace where our kings and queens used to live

Heck, it’s been years and some Hawaiians still doesn’t want to accept what happened...because we know America stole our land

    As a person that's into fitness (specifically weight training and building muscle) I've always heard that's it's easy to be thin/lean in Japan.
    But is it easy to be buff/muscular in Japan?
    In Britain you see men who workout a lot. But I don't imagine that's a common sight in Japan.

    • Liquid Snake

      Sumo wrestlers are actually in surprising shape, they're not really fat fat, they're more fat like strongmen are , they got a ton of muscle under that fat. Thing is that their heart is in good shape so it can handle the fat better, their muscles are stronger so their bones don't suffer from the added weight, so Sumo wrestlers are not really comparable to normal people

      I’m Sumo fan and sumo wrestlers’ body fat ratio is much lower than they appear. One of my favorites Chiyonofuji could run 100m for 11seconds.
      There’s this really show featuring people around 600lb in the US and many of them are bed-ridden. Watching it, I realized how muscular sumo wrestlers are. Moving quickly with such heavy weight requires huge amount of muscle and hard training.

    • Josh Apple

      In my opinion, I think most people are confused when it comes to the word "fat" and "Japan. A lot of people assume the reason there are fat people at all in Japan is for Sumo Wrestling. But, it is because you live in such an advanced economy,, that being Lacadazical is seen as a right. Now,the confusion about Sumo can be explained by the fact that, even though Weestalers are overweight, they have actual muscle mass.
