Speaking Japanese is amazing fun. But not when you have to speak it all day without being allowed to switch to your native tongue. On Day 14 of Journey across Japan, we give it a shot.

Sharla has been an absolutely awesome cohost for this, she's super sweet and geniune, with the bonus of swearing like a sailor. 10/10

When they speak Japanese like this, I can't help but think I'm watching an anime or something. I gotta be honest though, Chris sounds badass speaking Japanese

I was promised rage. Your anger is weak, Broad.

It's great to see the angry Bitter British Man with the Happy excited Canadian Woman. They work well off each other.

Chris died during the journey and his videos are now released weekly to milk the leftover footage he made into as long a series as possible.

Sharla is already very cute but the cuteness level when she speaks Japanese sky rockets!

Abroad in Japan

Hey guys, so sorry for the delay on this one! I was starting to think a higher power didn't want this video to come out.
First there was the extra time it took to do subtitles, then this past week I've been battling something in between a cold and the flu (it was always going to happen sooner or later on this cycle).
AND THEN finally yesterday the computer failed to render the video for an unknown reason and I nearly threw the laptop out the window.
But it's done! I'm back on my feet, the video is up and I'm looking forward to getting back to regular uploads.
Honestly guys, I still pinch myself to think that as of today, we've now had 20 videos released on the Abroad in Japan channel since just September! To put it bluntly, that's absolutely mental.
As always thanks for watching and if you enjoyed the video, please hit the like button. I never harass you to do it (as I hate it when creators constantly harass viewers), but after a somewhat crap week, it might just help put a smile back on my filthy, unshaven face.
Now enjoy scrutinizing my Japanese!

I cannot WAIT for Pete Ronald McDonaldson to show his handsome mug in these videos. Sharla is fantastic though. It would be cool to see a video one day with all of the cast joining to do a celebratory "We (mostly Chris) did it!" party.

Actually watching from Yamagata instead of Germany today cause you showed us how great Tohoku is, so thank you and keep this awesome channel up!
