    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!

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.

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

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.

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.

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!

Growing up I had an Japanese akita her name was Miko. With akita’s they stay around the youngest children to protect.

I just love that subtle goofyness that comes out in your word choice and jokes when you are with Ryotaro!

Always nice to see people interested in Akita other than the dogs. Was originally born in Akita so I have a really bad Country accent 😅

@Rico Imp Ben means an accent. Japanese has different accents depending on the region.

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

Great video. Love those dogs. When it comes to Oyakodon, I also like the variant with salmon.

Amazing how in Japan everything is standardized according to the Japanese laws, nothing but the best for the people.

Aww, I had heard of Hachiko before but not until I saw the statue in this video did I realise how similar the story is to Greyfriars Bobby in Edinburgh, Scotland. Fascinating as always Chris 👍🏻

My daughter and I have been watching your videos ahead of our trip to Japan, not til 2023 so still got some time. Would love to see a video of Must See Places If you Only Have a Week. There's so much to do I'm worried that we're going to spin our wheels for a week and not maximize the limited time we have.

I have an Akita dog and in all honesty, I did not know that Akita was also a place in Japan, thank you for this insightful information, Chris.

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.

How can one not love Ryotaro?! He has a dry humour, a goofy side and plays off Chris so well.

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 didn't know Akita was a prefecture in Japan, I thought it was just a breed of dog, so I really appreciate this video. My cousins had an Akita dog. She was such a teddy bear with us kids, letting the younger ones hold onto her fur and leading them around while they were learning to walk. But if you were a stranger, she was mean. She was fiercely protective, and once bit a man's leg off when he broke in to their home.

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!

I really love Namahage, I wish we had them here in Southern California. We have the Los Angeles Krampus Parade and Costume Ball, but it's just not the same. No one goes door to door to scare children in to behaving, getting alcohol in return for doing a good job. Namahage get sake, Krampus get beer.
