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.

Its been thoroughly enjoyable living through your adventures in a country I'd love to visit again - particularly in the middle of a British lockdown! Thanks for continuing to provide really interesting and engaging content, I look forward to keeping up to date. Also, as if I wasn't already hooked on Japan, an apple pie map would have sold me!

    Fun fact : even though Aomori people has the lowest average life expectancy in Japan, they're still way higher than the other countries have.
    According to the government's most recent statistics, the average life expectancy for men in the prefecture is 78.67 years, and 85.93 for women

    Are you at the town that has the dolphin statue ? I found that on google earth ages ago. There was also this photo taken from some sort of tower / lighthouse / mountain around there which had awesome view ( some sort of tourist spot ). Also found this video on youtube years ago of this seaside village that was really cool but its one of those things where I will never find it again, very quiet village that had a lot of old wooden objects / old stuff.

    Bears are super avoidable, you just have to make yourself known, for example my grandma always talks to herself loudly to avoid meeting one and she lives in a place where they sometimes leave the forest and walk around her lawn.
