What $250 Buys You at a Japanese Hot Spring Inn

A stunning Japanese inn so large you get a self-driving cart, a sake brewery that encourages you to drink in a forest, and pork Tonkatsu so delicious it's criminal. We head off to the region of Gunma to celebrate to 2m subscribers, while Ryotaro spends the entire time trying to convince me, he's singlehandedly the architect behind any success the Abroad in Japan channel has ever had.
Our journey through Gunma took us to incredible breweries. You can find the full list of places we visited here!

  • NOTIFICATION SQUAD: Don't deny it. You wanted to see Ryotaro get run over by the patronisingly slow self-driving cart as much as I did. A MASSIVE thank you to you all for tuning into the Abroad in Japan channel - whether you're new here and are still wondering who the hell we are, or have been watching since the dawn of time (which is 2012). I never thought we'd make it this far and I'm hoping we can do something extra special in 2021! Bring on some serious "pork tactics." (Seriously though, how does Ryotaro invent these phrases?!).

    • Chris i have a question . You mentioned that you had an japanese girlfriend now ex .how did you find dating in japan to be different from western culture dates . What are key differences and how does a lady expect to be treated on a date and such? Also i love your content you make me very happy in these gloomy days. thank you very much!

  • This is the worst video ever about Japan. It felt like to drunks without imagination chit chatting about nothing. The hole enterprise was without any relevant research including information about what was included in the $250 cost. What about the food, sake tasting, spring trip etc. Was there any tipping involved to the staff? One has to be really mediocre and brainless to follow this guy. I've wasted my time listening to bar talk about nothing. Stay away from "Abroad in Japan." There are many quality videos about Japan on TH-vision.

  • Mister who is Abroad, I'd like to ask: How is it, that you and Ryotaro are able to exchange offensive jokes which in western culture are usually the norm among friends however japanese people may find them rude?

  • Maybe it's that I love listening to native speakers talk in their own language but I wish that the interviews were mainly in Japanese, especially since Chris knows Japanese! Yes, when speaking to us, switch it back to English, but other then that, keep it Japanese, I'll gladly read the subtitles. Besides you can see that they become more comfortable and open when they hear their own language, just like anyone else would.

  • i love how in america, $250 is about average for a hotel room, and you get a basic continental breakfast and that's it, meanwhile in japan 250 bucks gets you what you would normally have to pay at least 500-600 for, per night. it's insane.
