    NOTIFICATION SQUAD: Which of today's 21 items would YOU pick if you could have just one?
    Welcome to the brand new Abroad in Japan studio! I didn't do a job pointing out that's where this was shot until about 22:05 into the video.
    Looking forward to giving you the grand tour in a few weeks time when it's finally finished!

    What I like about Chris in Abroad in Japan is that he isn't just talking about an interesting subject, he's really very clever and sly about his topics, and he is both smart and well-read in general. Many other KZcliprs in general don't match up, with a lack of insight, wit, or just plain research that really shows. Well done.

      Usually the way it works is the more frequently you upload, the lower the amount of views compared to your subscriber count. Someone who is uploading daily should expect to have 10% of views compared to subscribers. Chris uploads less frequently so he should expect a higher percentage.

    spam musubis (which look similar to the spam onigiri in your vid) are common in Hawaii and soooo good! the spam is usually cooked in some sort of sauce (I cook it in equal amounts of shoyu, sugar, and a little sesame oil) so it's a lot more flavorful and I highly recommend trying it :)

    Every morning when I was in Japan, I would hit the convenience store for breakfast. My favorite thing to get were the shelf-ready Onigiri. My favorite where the tuna ones, but I also often got salmon and whatever else I could find just to try them out. That would be accompanied with an Ito Green Tea, the best bottled green tea. HOWEVER, when I was in Taiwan, there was a Seven Eleven that only had this bottled chocolate milk tea. I dream of that milk tea I tell you! The Family Marts didn't have it, I had to go to the Seven Eleven. My favorite snack to pick up was the bag of dried squid tentacles, mmmm! I miss it. This video was awesome, made me feel kind of nostalgic for my time in Japan/East Asia.

Also I do like Pocari sweat, despite its name, it tastes good; kinda like a melon Gatorade.

    I miss kombini food. My absolute favorite was the 6 pc mint chocolate ice cream in a box at 7-eleven. I could eat 2 boxes in one sitting and I'd have no regrets. I lived off the seasoned chicken breasts and salad greens from Family Mart for a long while as well. There's also this mango lassi at Lawson that I always hoard when I see it. Calpis was like ambrosia to me and it was real fun trying out all their flavors. I have the same expression when I see Japanese cheese. Japanese cheese isn't really that good imo and I was very lucky there was a Yamaya branch near my house so I had my cheese needs met.
    Also LOL at the FOSHU Coke. So many supposedly healthy things that are just made of a base of unhealthy food and an additional healthy compound.

    I brought back so much Ukon no Chikara when I moved back home. I do not go to any party without drinking it. I'm not a huge drinker, but I now get horrible hang overs. But I take one bottle of that and the next morning all I feel is hungry. No headache, no vomiting. Just "I could go for some breakfast right now". It's amazing. 10/10 would recommend. it must be taken BEFORE you drink. If it's gonna be a heavy/long night, take two!

    When I visited Yokosuka, my brother bought a store bag of 7-11 (I think) premade sealed mini-pancakes. Honestly sad they're not more common.

    I’ve tried something similar to Genji Pie but it’s crunchy. It looks exactly the same though. I got it at Costco I think.

    We have Genji Pie in America but under another name. Slightly sweet kinda of croissant texture cookies. I've seen them at Costco I think.
    Colaup THE HARD sounds like it might be for me. I have a problem chewing on stuff like straws so a extra chewy gummy might actually be nice.

    The heart shape Genji-Pie, we call them Orejas (the J is silent), or Palmiers, or even elephant ears, from the Mexican market (and best Mexican food than a chain restaurant)… They’re made fresh daily and it’s just puff pastry with sugar and baked, they make them in different sizes. A bit thicker than the Genji-Pie and taste better when out of the oven. I buy them and other Mexican sweet breads… and I’m not 85! Lol 😉.. it’s good with coffee or cold mild.

    The Genji Pies look exactly like a pastrie from Germany called "Schweinsohr" (which directly translates to pig ear).
    I guess that's where it originated from, seeing other typical german pastries that are popular in Japan (like Baumkuchen).

    Ha funny it's called gaba. I am a veterinary nurse and we use a medication called gabapentin (also used for humans) and we call it gaba for short. Not only does it help for pain but it also has a behavioral effect for fractious/anxious animals. Fun fact I thought I could share.

    My boyfriend is vegetarian and we were planning of visiting japan. We are already aware that it is quite tough being one in Japan and there are a lot of things that can be misunderstood due to the cultural differences.
    If this is something that you think would be a good video to make, we would love to also see convenience store food that is ok for vegetarians to eat.
    Lots of love from Norway.
