  • NOTIFICATION SQUAD: To miss the Natsuki cameo in this video would be a crime! Well folks, you can't beat a good road trip and this was easily one of the most fun videos I've produced in 9 years. A HUGE thanks to my best American friend PETE for coming along for the ride (even if his motives were questionable). You can find him over on Twitch where he streams most nights (🌟www.twitch.tv/premiertwo ) and I look forward to stopping by and doing some shows with him in a few weeks to celebrate surviving our journey.

    • Crows may be seen flying past, crying "aho! aho!"

    • Did you go to Oshamembe? It's my hometowm.

    • Play on words puns... Yabai yabai

    • You guys are an awesome duo. You have to do the trip to the most southern point in Japan. That would be epic

    • The sarcasm in Chris' English is just too freaking hilarious

  • Please bring the American on more often

  • Magnifiques les images!

  • Saw that twist coming...

  • Pete should put that mug back together with Kintsugi!

  • This needs much more views with this much effort... I will watch this whenever I miss Hokkaido, Japan Thank you, Chris, good stuff :)

  • wakannai 🤌🏼 oh no

  • My god, he is American 🤣

  • We need more videos with Pete !

  • As a finn it pains me to see how poorly theyve dressed for the weather 😅

  • This all looks very scandinavian.

  • Is it me, or did this remind anyone else of Disneys “A Goofy Movie”. This was very entertaining

  • Pete should fix that mug with kintsugi!

  • knowing that someone else made a 28 min video of them watching minecraft videos and earning the same as chris with his insane production quality and editing pain

  • This video is a masterpiece...pete and you bring the joy

  • The drone shots are just incredible. Noice. 🔥

  • I really really really miss Japan. Fuck COVID.

  • i like Pete , nice guy and his voice sounds like Wes johnson .

  • I used to think Pirates were cool but then abroad in japan happened.

  • Chris needs to have his own netflix/tv show

  • Is it just me or does Pete looks like a happy Zemo from Marvel, actor is Daniel Brühl, the resemblance is so close!

  • Thats some Nanami Gojo energy

  • Pete's British accent is fucking impeccable

  • One of the best videos you made. Keep up the great work.

  • That Buddha is very impressive. Literally meditating to ignore the snow piling up on him. Very cool.

  • When are you guys coming to India ?

  • This somehow feels like I'm watching Batman and Flash on an undercover mission in Hokkaido and neither one of them has any idea how to dress for cold weather

  • 楽しんでもらえて嬉しいです

    • YOU should visit that Buddha SITE during SUMMER! when those the lavender plants ARE IN FULL BLOOM!

  • 17:51 how...

  • When Pete mentioned that it was somewhere called "wakanai" I kinda knew where this was gonna go XD

  • Does Pete has his own channel?

  • Wow! Outside shoes indoor in Otaru. Thank you very much for behaving badly after having lived in Japan for so many years.

  • I dare you to find and ride the most extreme zip line in the Greater Tokyo area, OR... go bungee jumping in northern Kanto region. And then follow it up with a go-kart tour dressed as your favorite character (from the selection available). The gauntlet has been thrown, good sir!

  • Not gonna lie, natsuki almost got me in the first half!!! like this vlog

  • I have my honey moon in Hokkaido 16 years ago. Really hope to go back there again.

  • American energy is just something else

  • The North Pole of Japan! ⛄

  • As far South as possible in Kyushu is quite nice too.

  • Oh... wakannai... just for a mug.

  • The shots in this video are gorgeous, made me fall in love with Japan once again. Good job Chris!

  • This was a really fun video to watch!

  • wakkanai.....I DON'T UNDERTAND, sounds close like Wakaranai.....NANI??

  • 9 years since he's been back in the U.S? Jesus.....we need to start a gofundme page to get this man a flight back to Kansas.

  • YOU should visit that Buddha SITE during SUMMER! when those the lavender plants ARE IN FULL BLOOM!

  • Hokkaido looks like the country side in Quebec Canada 🍁! Love the buddha statue ❤️

  • That Daiso mug only in Wakkanai? What a good reason to go up there haha. I've got that exact broken mug too (minus the broken parts).

  • Lol love these two “Can you sail?”

  • There should be a uncut release of the entire uneventful trip back.

  • More Pete!

  • holy shit i laughed so hard at the cup noodle part. it genuinely did resemble a bad commercial LOL

  • Pete: "Please have a bathtub. YES! We have one!" Chris: "Woo hoo."

  • We have a stonehenge replica in my state not too far from where I live in the US! So weird hahahaha

  • despite watching Chris for several years, I'm always thrown off when he is seriously narrating a picturesque scene and then abruptly ends it with a sarcastic remark

  • what a great duo

  • Going on a three day road trip to the northern most tip of Japan in the middle of the winter... all for a pun... That is some serious dedication to bad comedy. I love it. (Either that or some passive way to 1-up Ryotaro.)

  • I miss Hokkaido

  • I just love Chris' sunny disposition.

  • do more videos with him, unlike your other companions. this guy has everything your personality is missing and you both play very well together.

  • CLAPCLAPCLAPCLAP! Bravo Chris! Great video =]

  • At least if this mug breaks, you'll know for sure it's legit.

  • I clicked on this thumbnail because I thought you were Elon Musk. wtf my eyes must be going bad....

  • Love this videos. Thank you for taking us with you on this trips

  • What kind of drone do you use for your overhead shots?

  • Pete's enthusiastic personality brings just the right amount of crazy to this channel. Truly remarkable~

  • Your mate is so likable and cute

  • I love American Pete. Such charisma

  • Dude, Chris. I love you. I will always love you. But Pete stole the show. What an incredible personality. You two also work so well together. More Pete!

  • Twinleaf to Snowpoint

  • 23:00 I love everything about this bit

  • Classic Natsuki!

  • great video! natsuki is the best!

  • I've seen Pete or as they call him on TV, Pita before. He has some hot takes on food I'm just gonna leave it at that.

  • Maybe Pete can appear in more videos. He is a fun guy it seems like. Add him to the Tokyo Creative super group!

  • Awesome episode!!

  • could get used to getting 30min long episodes of Abroad in Japan :D

  • I want to travel like this. ☺️

  • 16:50 "So chris what do you think of this cosy american prairy home?" Me: God that looks Scandinavian minus the bathroom...

  • one question comes too mind at 17:50 why does this guy know what dog pi*s taste like?

  • They are going into the freezy winter wilderness sticks, and wearing their Tokyo slicker best...

  • I don't comment too often but this was so enjoyable I thought I should !

  • Kansas is also famous for the TV show Supernatural.

  • lol Natsuki hahahha

  • Puts a smile on my face when you mentioned Ghost of Tsushima

  • Very well filmed and edited video

  • I' ve been there once when I was in university with my classmates, this video makes me nostalgic.

  • Bean bag chairs? London guide book? Is Natsuki hiding in a closet somewhere?

  • Natsuki!! I love his laughter

  • I think everyone from sweden can relate to feeling quite confused at 0:52

  • Sometimes, Chris you remind me of Mr Bean

  • Some of these shots are absolutely incredible!

  • I'd do the same thing too.... LOL. If someone bought me something and I broke it, and if opportunity came, I'd travel to replace it. Also, I've always wanted to go to Hakodate. I think I went to Fukuoka instead. At that time I was leaving in Japan and they were two opposite ends so I didn't have time. I was in Otaru in the middle of winter ages ago too. I still have winter snow boots that I bought there and never wear (in Australia) now.

  • Great vid pleas like it would meen the world

  • Pete: "As far south as we can go in Okinawa." Do it! Do it! The Yaeyama Islands are the southernmost inhabited islands, right? I wanna see that!

  • As soon as you introduced "your best American friend" I was like 'oh shittt' and immediately scrolled down to the comments to see what shenanigan's we were about to enjoy. I was most surly not disappointed. XD

  • Now go to Canada

  • Wow Chris, how did you get Daniel Bruhl on the show

  • Hakodate is sister cities with the capital city of my province in Canada! It's sister city is Halifax, Nova Scotia! A lot of the buildings are similar to those at our famous port city!

  • This is way better than most blogs I've seen in SEnewss. The British and American in you two bounce off each other in a very fun way.

  • Idk, but pete has a Chris Farley vibe. That is a compliment.

  • This was actually fun and I think Pete did a good job with he acting
