Akita is home to Japan's most luxurious chicken called Hinai Jidori. We go in search of the juiciest chicken, the cutest Akita dogs and the scariest monsters in Japan on our road trip across the region!

Ryotaro and I recently travelled across Tohoku and this video was just part of our trip. Read more about where we went here!

NOTIFICATION SQUAD: Would you let the Namahage demons in to scare the hell out of your kids? Back on the road with Ryotaro in search of Japan's rarest chicken and it didn't disappoint. God bless Yakitori, my favourite dish.

Considering Akita were bred for hunting bears and other large animals, I'm not surprised they're so massive! You need an absolute unit for that >:D Another cool bear-hunting specialized breed in Japan is the Hokkaido, which is actually smaller but also very brave and well adapted to Hokkaido's cold temperatures.

@Abriel Robertsson I think they get them confused with Shiba Inus who kinda look the same, but have more like Akita Pup size. Though even shiba inus are still bigger then people think.

comments like these make me laugh cuz it reminds me that no one know whats involved in bear hunting. not saying akitas werent bred for bear hunting, but if you think bear hunting involves letting a dog go mono a mono with a bear thats why its the size it is, is fucking wrong lol. what they did was bred akitas to be aggressive and not be scared of big predators as opposed to other dogs whose instincts would tell them to avoid larger predators. you hunt bears with a pack of dogs, about 3-6, those dogs will scare and chase bears till they get tired or stuck up a tree, which is then when a hunter comes and kills the bear. bear hunting dogs do not actually hunt the bears/attack them. so really the size isnt really the thing, thats important about bear hunting dogs, though size helps, more scary than 3 chihuahuas. i mean we use pointers and coonhounds here in the US and theyre "bear" bunting breeds but they arent big. this is the same for hunting mountain lion, or cougar where i come from

You would be surprised how many people think Akitas are small. I had an Akita and when people saw him they were so surprised by his size, because they had never seen one. So yes they are large and tall dogs.

Those namahage and the surrounding traditions are astoundingly similar to my homeland's Krampus and Perchten traditions (yes, I'm from Austria). Scaring little children into behaving seems to be more of a universal thing than I thought. 😅

In southern Germany we also have the Krampus! At 6th of December Nikolaus and Krampus visit your home and read of a list what nice or naughty things you have done. We always had to play a song on the flute for Nikolaus as well. Then if you were nice you got a big bag with presents in it (mostly sweets and fruit). When you were naughty it's said that Krampus will put you in his bag and carry you away. Krampus was reeaally horrifying to us haha. I remember there were rumors around the neighbor kids that Krampus actually took someone with him and beat him up. Talk about childhood trauma haha

While Hachiko may be the most famous Akita inu, there's another fictional one that's surprisingly popular here in Northern Europe/Finland. The early-mid 80's manga and anime Ginga nagareboshi Gin tells the story of a Akita puppy that's trained to hunt bears in the northern wilderness and eventually he joins a group of other dogs to take down the tyrant of the mountains, the massive bear Akakabuto. The Ginga series by Yoshihiro Takahashi has multiple spinoffs and continuations but the original is still my favourite.

I like how Chris's friends are so different to him in every way, shape or form but they all have chemistry nevertheless and bring something cool, interesting or wacky. I believe they all befriended Chris because of the snarky sarcasm he brings to their lives (and the ability to do ads and songs almost instantly).

While Chris might not particularly love this, taking a bike around Tazawako, or visiting the nearby soy sauce brewery (with actually very tasty soy sauce ice cream), and then of course checking out Kakunodate (which is also nearby), is amazing, especially in Hanami season. In August, the Omagari fireworks festival is a nice trip because it's really huge and the shinkansen station is literally walking distance from the venue, so easy to get there and back from Sendai.

Omagari fireworks really was an amazing show, shame its been cancelled for two years now but hopefully next year it starts again. Thou I dont know about sendai, the last train for yotugoya station was very early for us making us miss the end of the show sadly. A car feels needed for that show.

んだんだ, great video Chris! I've lived in Akita for 6 months and can confirm that's one of the best place to experience the "real" Japan. Like most of Tohoku is one of the less touristy regions of Japan, but Akita prefecture is perhaps the least known by foreigners. Its rice, the Komachi rival that of Niigata, and the Kiritampo nabe is such a treat when the temperature drops and outside start snowing. Tohoku's and Akita's people are some of the friendliest and warmest, despite their infamous cold reputation. In winter is beautiful to snow there and to visit the Kamakuras and drink nihon-shu inside with locals! The Akita bijin is true, but unfortunately most of the real Bijin goes to Tokyo or the big cities!

The Namahage traditions remind me of the St. Nicolas traditions common here in central Europe. Instead of weird oni, we have devils from Hell that give bad children coal or attempt to take them back to Hell with them. Also seen are the large processions of devils during what is known as Krampusnacht (I believe?). People in Austria especially like this one from what I've heard (Austria is one country over, I am not sure on details). It's so interesting seeing traditions on the other side of the globe that seem so familiar!

I love the videos with Ryotaro - he is always incredibly interesting. Would love to see more of him in your videos - I always learn something new when you two are together. Just throwing it out there, but with you, Sharla and Ryotaro all in Sendai together, why not do a monthly webcast together? I understand that Sendai is quite large, but others come from Tokyo to film....this could be another way to engage your audience. Also, since I am throwing caution to the wind, would love to see others included like Ryotaro, Sharla, Norm, etc. in your "Journey Across Japan" series. Those were some of my favorites when you trekked across Japan (no need to cycle). You could do it by bullet train, train, bus, etc...with the various individuals listed above added to the mix. Do what you will, but miss seeing all of the others on your series. Thanks!

I've wanted one ever since, and I'm really not a dog-person AT ALL, but those are just wonderful. I was told it was potentially dangerous, but I'm terrified of dogs, and I saw nothing to scare me. They are huge, but it was super friendly, and such a gorgeous coat. As an adult now though, I think mostly how it must've cost the owner a fortune to get one in rural Queensland though, according to google currently just the dog is $700-$4000 in Australia, plus the cost of transporting it, that's a real dedication level of money that. I think I best stick with feeding the neighbourhood stray cat. 😂 It was an unforgettably beautiful dog though. Side note: When I was checking just now to be sure they're actually even still legal here, (they are) I found another Japanese dog that was on the banned list, Japanese Tosa, seems its banned most countries actually, but when I'm looking at the dog in google images, and I'm looking at the Bullmastiff in another tab, hmm, there's been a bunch of those Tosa dogs in this area too, registered as Mastiff X's. Maybe one day you could do a video on those Tosa's, why are they so bannable? All I've seen wrong from the "uh-its-a-mastiff-cross's" around here is that it's seemingly impossible to contain them, but personally I've been blaming careless inconsiderate bogan owners as a huge factor for that. But still, in Japan, it'd be one of the only countries where you could find the dog labelled correctly to evaluate it, like, with properly responsible owners is it actually maybe a nice dog? Elsewhere, it got promoted as a "fighting dog" and so would've attracted the worst type of owners. It can't really be as bad as all that though surely, or else the "uh-it's-a-mastiff-x"'s would join it on the banned list.

I did suspect that Google had drastically underestimated the price. 😂 Beautiful dogs though.

I have two Akitas in Qld and can confirm they are expensive. There are only a handful of good breeders for Japanese Akitas in Australia, and there's usually a pretty long application and wait list process to get one. They can cost a lot more than $4k as well.

I made myself and a friend Oyakudon just this week and it was absolutely delicious! The best thing is that it is extremely easy to make. I can recommend the video of Kimono Mom, she has a great recipe for it.

As a weird coincidence, I cooked myself oyakodon for the first time this evening before sitting down to watch this video. It would seem I need to reduce my sauce far more, based on what I see here!

I think this is the only youtube channel I've seen with production value comparable to TV travel shows. The main difference is the people on this channel are 1000X more interesting and likable.

Chris…mate of all the videos you’ve made about mouth watering food…this is by far the one that had me drooling most. Omg. This alone is a reason to visit Japan

You didn't insult the Greeks Chris, given how many people still smoke here, this is painfully accurate Also, just imagine Ryotaro saying "yasou kokla" (translation: hello pretty girl). Now that's something you hear in Athens streets everyday

This video inspired me to make my own version of oyakodon. As a Dutch guy without too much experience it is fun to make, seeing as I’ve made it thrive now!

So, if the Hinai Dori is off limits to eat, does that mean the eggs are too? And if the new breed Hinai Jidori tastes better than "regular chicken", does that mean their eggs taste better as well?

I visited my Japanese friend in Akita in 2010 and it was incredible. We went to a ski resort in the mountains and got to bathe in the onsen and look down on a beautiful valley while it rained. Not the only amazing experience I had in Japan but it stands out
