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.
88stdkillers Vor Monat
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
XSemperIdem5 Vor Monat
@Abriel Robertsson just seeing the size of their paws as puppies you can guess they're not small dogs.
Abriel Robertsson
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.
Bernadette Scheiber
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. 😅

yeah same in slovenian its called Kurentovanje here its people dressed in simmilar ways and they scare people on the street and enter houses to scare or take children

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
They also remind me of Bulgaria's Kukeri. Although our things just scare off bad spirits and not children...I think.

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.
Wigglenips Vor 20 Tage
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.

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!
Auf die Radeln fertig los
Yes we in Austria were visited by the Krampus and St Nikolaus it was fun and scary in Vienna but nobody got PTSD like the snow flake generation.

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!

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 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.
