      i did the mari kart thing. totally jetlagged. i was luigi, of course. but i didn't watnt to dress up. they made me. i did see that chippy and tried to steer towards it. but i've got too many morels for that. sommeone else got it. driving through shibuya was super fun though. some locals were scowling at me i think. and to myself not out loud i thought, huzzah! they hate me not for my skin color but for driving a go kart in a stupid costume. big win. also purikura is popular for the same reason japanese website look the way they do still even though it's not the mid 90s.

      @Aurelian that's not even remotely true. The US is too large to say that all big cities lack supermarkets. Supermarkets take up tons of real estate and cities are much more expensive to put large area commercial stores in. Plenty of large US cities have super markets despite that.

    Lived in Japan for a decade and re: Microaggressions -- you nailed it. 10 years of the same boring ass questions from everybody, and if you ever try to steer the conversation to something different (in Japanese, mind you, there are no language issues limiting the conversation topics), they often push it back to basically "yeah yeah, back to you being a gaijin tho." Always gaijin first, person second. That's fine working as an ESL teacher where your conversation is paid for, but dealing with that on a personal level wears on the soul after awhile.

      @Calbear712 Thats not even remotely similar to this guys experience. I'm from Canada and have been to more than 20 states over the course of my life and rarely ever get questioned about Canada unless I outright tell them I'm Canadian. I think you're mistaking microaggressions for curiosity, or you're living in some small town in Canada that rarely gets Americans visiting or living because in Toronto literally not a single person cares where you're from. I also have many American friends here who say its pretty much the same with slightly better living standards and free healthcare.

      A few weeks ago, me and a friend of mine were in a video game lobby with voice chat and wound up with a Canadian player. To me, this is about the most unremarkable thing ever, but my friend for some reason became obsessed with bringing up all the cultural differences between the US and Canada while chatting with this guy. I was cringing inwardly the entire time. Just treat people like people, don't make a huge deal out of where they come from. Lord...

      I think this generalizes to a lot of 'small, insecure countries neighbouring bigger, more important countries'.
      It becomes essential to maintaining any sense of independent national identity to obsess over the minor differences between you and your much bigger (better known, more important) neighbour, and convince yourself that those minor differences actually make you the 'better one of the two'.
      Kiwis do some of this vis-a-vis Australia, and especially America, (while Australians and Americans generally don't even notice New Zealand much, or care, because they don't need to).
      Scots and Irish vs the English (yes, of course there's more to it than this).
      Dutch vs Germans. Vietnamese vs Chinese. South Koreans vs everyone.
      "Please notice us. Please re-affirm that we do, in fact, exist"
      Canadians constantly like/need to assure each other that this or that aspect of Canada may actually qualify as "world class". Americans just take it for granted.

    One for me that never seems to get a mention anywhere, and most people (even many in Japan) don't even believe when you tell them is how absolutely awful the disability access is. I have been to and live in many diverse parts of the world, including developing countries, and Japan was one of the worst. To add insult to injury it was the second worst when it came to people acting like I am dirty because I use a wheelchair and making it very clear they believe I shouldn't be allowed in many places because god forbid a tiny bit of dirt comes in off the wheels (first place on this went to Thailand, but I do want to stress that, as with anywhere, the majority of people were fine. Thailand beat Japan simply because the aggression was far more in my face).

      Thats interesting that you say this. I visited Japan in 2019 for three weeks and found the places Ive been to be quite alright with the wheelchair, especially the trains, those were amazing.
      I live in Austria now and its not bad at all here and some things are indeed way more accessible but I didnt find Japan to be awful. Can you elaborate which pars stood out to you? I probably haven't encountered them yet

      ​@uberlisk America also does this wrong, I was in a wheelchair for a time, and then crutches, from being hit by a lifted pickup, this also meant I couldn't drive. If you can't drive in the USA or Canada you're basically forced into poverty. Nothing, not even food, is accessible. And in the USA forget about affording healthcare when no one will hire you because you can't get to the office. I live in midwest Canada and not only are there no sidewalks, no nearby public transportation, and no nearby places of employment but the lack of accessibility is so bad that I have genuinely considered rage quitting life because the other option was starvation. It's extremely difficult to get any further than the end of the driveway (not the least because of ice) without worrying about being run over so your social life is toast as well.
      I'd rather be judged to all hell and back than have to live through the hell that is trying to get accessible transport in the USA and Canada. It truly says something when I can confidently say the 2020 lockdowns measurably improved my quality of life in every single way.

      Come to Alberta, I was on crutches for a while and I couldn't even get 50m from my house without being run over by an 8 foot tall pickup truck. I can withstand disapproving glares forever, but not being able to get food, go to a doctor, get a job, or even access the (extremely ineffectual) public transit network (if public transit even existed at all for the area I was going to) and generally being confined to the space behind a driveway I'd take the casual racism over literally starving to death.

    Those rural Pachinko parlours sound a lot like "RSL or Community Clubs" here in Australia.... you drive around the country and through these struggling country towns and the building that is the most modern and looks the nicest is the local "RSL/Community Club" ... mainly because of the pokies (gambling machines) .... though they do serve some nice food/beer in those places as well.

    I'm a Japanese in Tokyo but cannot agree more with your list. Most of what you pointed is the flip side of what you think would be better for the people in Japan. Yet for MOS, have you tried spicy mos cheeseburger? It's not too bad. (My true favorite is AS classic burger in Roppongi hills) . Didn't know Malins was so good will give it a try. (Marmaid in Akasaka is good too?). If you live in the area try Ayano's bar in Imoaraizaka and you can meet interesting music and people.

    I completely sympathize with all of this. Gambling has ruined so many lives. I've watched it change over the years going from straight forward machines to machines that I simply can't figure out. If you're epileptic or have trouble in sensory overloaded places, it's just Hell. People have some weird idea that Vegas is exciting. Yeah, if you have plenty of money and only a few days to do things it probably is. I'm here all the time. Every casino is practically the same. Only the theme, cost and quality differ. We do demolish a lot of historical sites and then replace it with a modernized building. We also like having our buildings look alike. This is the least helpful way to point out a place. "It's the beige building." Who needs Google Maps when you can get such fine directions as that? Small talk thankfully isn't a social necessity. If a person came up to me and started chatting they tend to want something.
    Chris, I'm cynical enough for both of us. If you're happy that's great. You look like you're in better health than you were in your early videos. Keep it up and the next JAJ video will have slightly less despair.

      three reasons why japanese doesn't make good friends:
      first, they makes zero efforts to speak other languages and anyway when we try to speak japanese they laugh at our accents and they don't forgive bad pronounciations
      secondly, they refuse to show their feelings no matter how polite, kind and respectful we are. just because they refuse to put us in their friendship circle (in fact it's only when they get drunk, it's pathetic)
      and thirdly, they love to criticize the others in their back. they judge them without knowing them, they don't give us any chance. they don't tell our mistakes, how can we improve ourselves.
      i like japan, for what it has naturally, but i do not get why its locals are so well seen in the world.

      Europeans don't know how to not buy Wonderbread. How do you go to a grocery store, buy the most processed crap bread you can find, and complain about the bread tasting bad? There is good bread in America. We personally don't eat crap bread because I guess we know how to look for good bread. There is literally ZERO sweetness in the bread we eat because we go LOOK for good bread. I mean, in a grocery store you have a billion bread options and a bakery. There's no excuse. We have every type of bread here, and if you don't like your bread, get some you like. Seriously, not hard.

      I think the issue with glass boxes is more that they lack unique style.
      London has some legitimately good "glass towers" for example the Gherkin. Obviously they're better than gross old Brutalist concrete tower blocks you see everywhere in the UK but replacing iconic buildings (capsule tower) with boring copy paste buildings is not only just bad architecture but it legitimately harms tourist industry because you're reducing the unique identity of a place.

    I came back from my vacation in Japan a week ago and I LOVED it, but one thing I will always hate is the amount of plastic waste that is generated. So many tiny snacks, cutlery, and products are layered in needless plastic and most of it ends up in the garbage. Although I love myself some Japanese snacks, I can't help but wince every time I open a bag to find a bag within a bag containing a single piece of candy.

      Many plastic-wrapped products in Japan can be recycled. For example, if you buy bento from convenience store, after finish eating, you can peel the plastic layer on the upper side of the bento, and throw it out, but the rest of the bento box can be recycle. In this way, we do not need to wash the box, and recycle, just need to peel the protective plastic and 99% of the product can be recycled. In Japan, yes they use so much plastic, but their recycle rate is also one of the highest in the world. So it's fine.

      I think this is partly due to cleanliness/presentability culture in Japan - if a thing is not perfect then it must be faulty! So the packaging is all about protecting the product and keeping it perfect...

      A lot of people seem to forget that "recycling" is just one of a three step process: reduce, reuse, recycle. Use less plastic items in general. Use a single object as much as you can (a box, a bottle, a bag, etc). Then when its at the end of its life or no longer needed, recycle it (if possible).
      Even if you assume that plastic recycling is highly efficient (its not), and that most plastic is recycled (its not, even if its put in the recycling bin), and that no items are lost during the recycling process, you are still generating more waste just to recycle those plastic objects. If only in the form of fuel and the electricity to run the processing plants. Much better to just use less, if possible.
      That being said, pandemics do rather complicate matters. I live in an area with a ban on single-use plastic bags for groceries, but during the pandemic they didn't want workers handling people's reusable bags so they had to put a hold on that for a bit or else have the customers bag things themselves. (which, honestly isn't a tall order, but its an example of how single use plastics are very useful in times rife with infectious disease. All the more reason to reduce our usage when we can because all resources are finite and we want to minimize waste as much as we can.)

      Never been to Japan but there is this store that specializes in foods from Asia-Pacific that I go to once in a while. I noticed the same thing, whatever Japanese candy or snack you buy, you have to fight through layers of packaging to get to whatever you are going to eat in the end. I am sure the Japanese get surprised by the absence of packaging when traveling :-)

    You should do a show on micro aggressions focused on foreigners, or foreign-looking Japanese, done in a non-blaming fashion for a Japanese audience. This is something every society needs to work on. Do it with some of your Japanese friends, so you can exemplify case examples with someone who helps demonstrate the problem, followed by an explanation, followed by an example of how to communicate better.

      I’m not sure which apps would be best, keep searching as you are doing well. I would update your post in this way: What Japanese learning apps do you recommend? The ones I’ve tried so far were 100 times too easy. For example, in the second sentence you would use ‘were’ instead of ‘was’ as you were speaking of multiple apps. ‘Was’ would be correct if you had only tried a single ap so far. Apps were…. Ap was…. Also English has both the word ‘to’ which you would use for destinations, if you said you were going ‘to the park’ or ‘to work’ or ‘to the restaurant’, but English also has the word too, which you would use when talking about quantities, such as too much ramen, too little sushi, but also too easy (quantity of difficulty). I hope this has helped some, and that my explanations made sense.

He doesn't realize it, but keeps insisting it's Thursday, when it is actually Friday. He is referred to a psychiatrist and under hypnotic regression reveals his abduction experience, shown to us in flashback. Go for it - no copywrite is claimed here - use it.

      @Wom Bat That depends. If your English is accented, you might still get asked. And likewise, if your name is foreign enough sounding. Like for me, who pronounces my first name the Dutch way, I'll often be asked if it is German. But it doesn't happen every day, either, since it isn't like I wind up meeting new people often enough in situations where names are exchanged and that sort of small talk happens.
      It also tends to be more a case of people genuinely being curious, rather than trying to fill the empty spaces with meaningless conversation. And, well, there are things that bother me far more, like people not pronouncing my name correctly ;)

I would be wined and dined with absolute courtesy, yet any business matter was delayed until the very last moment when your Japanese counterparts knew you had to make a deal but time was not on your side. I'm not knocking it - good business practice - but it pays to be aware.

    What's shocking about pachinko is how nobody seems to know that it's a complete scam.

      @Noor Azharul Hisham A lot of Japanese I talked to were super surprised at the idea that it's a scam 😆

      They know, it's just that they are still addicted to playing it. Same with casinos in other countries.

    I did the Maricar thing, it was magical and amazing, and I honestly recommend it for a unique perspective on the city. As for the bad rep:
    A) seriously, don't fuck up, and pay attention to your driving (oh and get a foreign driver's license before you go)
    B) as demonstrated by the microaggeession topics, you're always going to be a gaijin, so just lean into it. They're going to treat gaijin the same no matter how many people do Maricar so might as well indulge.

    In game design we actually created a pachinko game and learned about how big it is in Japan. Was really fun and by far one of the easier games I've ever had to make. Those fruit sandwiches honestly don't look that bad because they are sort of like fruit cakes. I much prefer fruit and whipped cream over way too sweet icing that has no flavour besides white sugar.

      ​@Cuteopia x The United States Government is worse than that, they are trying to take our guns away. 90% of Americans who never heard the will get sent to prision without warning. Basically Current government is corrupt with Kamala Harris behind the puppet Joe Biden and their cronies love seeing us Innocent Lawful Americans get killed basically. Democrats and the Woke agenda is worse than Nazi, Communist, Fascists', Racist combined. Basically, we Americans are going to have it worse than you of the UK. All I ask is that you pass this message and ask them to not come to the US as a Tourist or Immigrant. Since our stupid government ain't doing anything for our safety, it be best to have foreign help to close our borders as this will easily kill a nation. If the US gets into a second US Civil War, it will also be best to let us Americans fight this war since it be the only way to save the US.
