In Japan's northern region of Aomori, the locals regularly eat bear meat. But why's it popular and how does it taste? We travel across Aomori to try 5 dishes and uncover why it has the shortest life expectancy of any prefecture in Japan. (And no it's got nothing to do with the bears!)

    NOTIFICATION SQUAD: On our 200km journey around Aomori we ate our way through five local dishes. WHICH ONE do you want to try the most?
    Also, don't miss Ryotaro's absurd rap. He truly outdid himself this time. Jokes aside, it's good to be back on the road together. I always enjoy these little excursions and I hope you guys enjoy coming along the ride! (ESPECIALLY now Abroad in Japan is in 4k). Right, I'm off for a liquor breakfast.

      Paradise... Thanks Chris, another super, informative video. I love anything apple related. I also like venison (deer meat, and no I would not eat a fawn) . I wonder if Aomori does a version of Apfelkorn? It’s a German spirit based on apples. (I am told it gives a killer hangover, but I don’t get hangovers, so I wouldn’t know.) I have some in the fridge. I’ll toast you both with it later.

    Hi Chris,
    I don't know if you're aware but japanese bears are actually at a very high risk of extinction due to habitat destruction, hunting and over-poaching. Could you please bring some awareness to this in your next video, as I'm sure no one wants to see these creatures hunted to extinction. Thank you.

    Hmm.. some of it looks and smells good, even from here.
    Excess of bears, and a sufficiency of hunters who want to resolve the problem, seems like a simple solution approaching a problem reality that seems to be hard to find in the West these days.
    One thing missing though: Surely a cooked bear's head with an apple in it's mouth should be on the menu somewhere? A roast pig with an apple in it's jaws is a traditional expression of a banqueting feast in older books & Hollywood movies.
