This time we're asking Japanese people to react to American food. We got some tasty pictures that we're gonna show them and we wanna find out what their very first reactions are to when they see these pictures. And what does that actually say about Japanese people and their relationship to food because that was a very interesting thing that we figured out while we did this video. Now before we head on, don't forget subscribe, hit the notification bell so you don't miss future videos and give us a like to say thanks. So let's head of to the streets of Tokyo and ask Japanese people to react to American food. What image do you hold in your mind of American food? - High calorie Why so? - Mainly chewy things like bread and meat. "High calorie" is the first thing on your mind! - It seems unhealthy ... So looking at this picture, what do you think? - It looks tasty. It looks tasty... but seems to have many calories. Oooh that's quite amazing... The day afterwards I wouldn't eat much. - On the next day you eat less? I would eat only healthy things on the next day. - What do you eat on the next day after burgers? Only vegetables to balance out having had this. How often would you eat a burger? - Once every 2-3 months. If I had one per month I would think it's too much so ever 2-3 months would be my thing. - If you got this bang on your plat e what do you do? - Well I could eat it up but I would have to balance it out the days before and after in order to deserve this. - To deserve the burger? In order to eat this without guilt, I would balance it with light foods before and after I can't eat this every day. This type of food has high calories and we generally don't eat that much so when you sometimes have it, it tastes good. - It's like a treat? - Yeah We won't eat this every day. You won't say every other day "let's have a burger or pizza" No way. - When eating something in Japan, what are you worried about? The high calorie amount. It makes me worried. What's your image of US food? Hamburgers! - Meat! - Cola! And more meat. Aaaah that's what we had in mind. -Seeing this, what do you think at first. - That's it. Comparing US and JP food, what is different? American food is just fatty. Their sweets are too colorful. It makes me worried if they're ok to eat. - What makes you worried? They are too blue! I have seen bright orange. They seem to be so unhealthy. Sorry for being rude on this one. So too much color and fat? - It seems unhealthy. If you eat that one, would you be worried? - Yeah. - About what? It looks to fatty. I would worry about weight gain. If you eat it sometimes it's ok but not regularly. I would gain weight if I did that. - Looking at food. No matter the age men and women in Japan seem to say "I would get fat". You seem to worry a lot more here compared to abroad. Why? - People expect Japanese to be skinny all the time. - Our models and TV personalities are very skinny And we all get told that's what's good looking and we all wanna look good so we think a lot about being skinny. - How often a month would you eat hamburgers? - 4 times. - 3 times. 3 times. - Why? - Whaat? Well if you eat that too regularly, it wouldn't be special anymore I would eat it 4 times a month, once a week should be alright. Do you skip dinner on a day when you had a burger? I am used to Japanese food... so US food is only a "sometimes" kind of food. Ta-da. - Wow. - What? - The size... Big size!!! - And here. - What? It looks so tasty. - Wow. Big! - Ta-da - What is that thing in the middle? Coleslaw. It's cabbage. - Wow the meat very.... like this - thick... and now I spoke Japanese to your English What's the first thing you think of? Having those meat juices spread in my mouth! - Tasty! - Yes! It's so thick! Not sure if I could get that all in one bite We showed the same pictures to girls here, Their reactions was different. What do you think they said? If I ate that... - They would worry about weight gain? - Yeah That was their first reaction. Why? Well, because there is lots of meat and calories seem to be high. But you didn't think first "I will get fat if I eat that" when you saw it? - No You showed me these images and I didn't think of that first Why do girls think first of weight gain when they see this? They always have to be worried about calories. Abroad we do pizza parties. Have you done one? One pizza per person is a no. We all share one pizza in a group Even boys won't eat a whole pizza here? We would share one between two Nobody eats them alone. Only eat half a pizza with a friend. Why so? - You wanna eat other flavors too. And the portion is big a bit too big if you ate one alone. But what about the pizzas that have 4 flavor sections? Could you eat that for the variety of flavors? Not alone. We couldn't - So in your life... have you ever eaten an whole pizza - Ok I have - me too How often in your life? - Twice maybe Same here for me. - When? - The family restaurant pizza Saizeria and such. Just a small medium pizza or so. Not that big. - That size? I think. - That size you can eat alone. - Yeah Rather than saying "it looks tasty it looks colorful" it looks like there is a lot of meat" Generally the girls first reactions were "it looks unhealthy, it looks like you'd gain weight. It looks like it has a lot of calories. So instead of taking the food as something to enjoy the first reactions seem to be of something to worry about if you eat too much of it or the wrong type. And what kind of effects it will have on your body. I found a lot that, especially girls don't seem to be able to let their guard down when it is around food. Here in Japan many people are skinny, and many seem to think they are skinny cause they are asian. And it's generally not like that. There is quite a lot of effort that Japanese girls do to keep skinny and a lot of foods that they don't allow themselves to have because they might gain weight. You could hear it from the girls. They thought totally that you have something with high calories, the next day you don't have that or try to eat it with something heathy to balance it out. This might be a healthier lifestyle of approaching it but at the same time... sometimes you need to just enjoy food. You could see it from the boys. The boys said "this looks like a lot of meat and the tasty flavor of the meat would come out" and that reaction we didn't get from a single girl unfortunately. You could see that it says a lot about what kind of relationship we have to food when we look at it and it seems like there's a negative image towards foods that are high in calories, especially foods for Japanese girls come on, you all have seen those youtube videos that have super high calorie foods that just look so tasty and you just wanna try it right. Hah. I have seen some of those. Anyways. On that note, what kind of other things would you like us to go to the streets of Tokyo and let Japanese people react to.
