  • Hey guys! So today we are back with another video and we are in a... different setup here back in my, uh, house in Los Angeles.


  • And, uh, I am accompanied by my good friend Eli over here who is from America.


  • And, um, today we want to talk about 10 things that we missed about America when we were in Japan.


  • Um, Eli has been in Japan about four times. -Um-hum.

    伊萊去過日本過4次。 -沒錯。

  • Um, I have been living in Japan for about three-and-a-half years or so.


  • I am back in L.A., uh, my hometown, for about a-week-and-a-half vacation.


  • So let's start with a list that is not in any order, okay, so number one is: [Spacious Living Quarters.]


  • So here in America, spacious rooms, apartments or houses, um.


  • When you are in Japan, things are so... compact.


  • -So compressed, right? -Absolutely.

    如此被壓縮......是吧?-絕對是 。

  • Um, even hotels you were talking about, right?


  • Yeah, I mean, (a) typical hotel room in the US is at least double the size of an average hotel room in Japan.


  • Number two has to do with food and beverages, so here in America, you get more quantity, uh, you have more options, and they're cheaper.


  • -Um, so whenever you go to like any restaurant and you order like a soda in America, you get free refills almost all the time. -Yeah.

    你只要在美國的任何餐廳點一杯點一杯汽水,幾乎都可以免費續杯。 -對。

  • Um, I think that goes for soda, iced tea, lemonade.


  • -Um, I think coffee you can't get free refills but... -Yeah sure you can get free refills for coffee yeah. -You can?

    我想咖啡你不能免費續杯。 -你當然可以可以免費續杯。

  • But basically, in Japan, if you order one coffee, that means you get one coffee, if you order one soda, that means you get one soda.


  • And the price is a little more expensive than it would be here in America.


  • Um, so that's a really big plus that America has, and that's the reason why we are so healthy here.


  • Number three has to do with food again. -[Free Appetizers.]


  • Here in America, you basically get free appetizers in, like, all restaurants.


  • Like in a Mexican restaurant, you get, like, free chips and salsa.

  • Um, an Italian restaurant, you get free bread, um, steak restaurant, you get free bread.


  • And it's also, um, all you can eat, so you can keep ordering that, uh, for free.


  • They'll give you free bread if you want more bread.

    如果你想要更多的麵包,他們會給你更多的麵包。 -對。

  • Um, in Japan, like, I think there's like, maybe if you go to an Outback Steakhouse is the only place, which is an American chain.


  • But they have, they have free refills for bread.


  • But typically in Japanese restaurants, um, you do not get any free appetizers - You are actually charged a table fee usually.


  • Um, and they don't give you any free appetizers.


  • What's a table fee?


  • So, like, a table fee maybe if you go to like an izakaya, they'll charge you like 500 yen each person for just sitting down.


  • I'm not even joking, and plus you need to order one dish.


  • So moving right along, number four, we have better parks or recreational areas.


  • So in America, you can, like, go to a park and there could be like a nice public, uh, basketball court that you can you know use for free.


  • Um, or there (could) be big parks. where you can just, you know kick the soccer ball around, throw the football around.


  • Um, but in Japan because it is so small, uh, nothing against Japan, it's just that Japan is so small that you can't have those areas.


  • Um, and even if you want to play like "Futsal," um, "Futsal" is like indoor soccer or like small sided soccer.


  • Um, it's really expensive, It's almost like 20 bucks to 40 bucks per person.


  • Um, and that's, that is something very different from America.


  • Um, you know, I grew up in Los Angeles, so, um, we played basketball all the time, you know, in school playgrounds.


  • So, it was kind of something that I kind of missed while living in Japan, you know, I couldn't play basketball really ever.


  • Yeah, and I play a lot of golf, especially in Japan, the driving ranges are much smaller than compared to the US.


  • It's like, US, you can hit at least up to 300 yards, um, in almost every driving range whereas Japan, some of them that I have been to, in like Osaka, you can only hit maybe 80-90 yards.

    在美國,你可以打到至少300碼,幾乎在所有的駕駛範圍內,在日本,我去過的一些地方,比如大阪,你只能打到80 -90碼。

  • There are four levels, It's a totally different style of golf.


  • I don't know anything about golf, so...

    我對高爾夫一竅不通,所以... ...。

  • Uh, so number five, um, shopping!


  • So, in America, you have the Nordstrom Rack.


  • You have a bunch of these, like, department stores that, um, have really big sales and discounts for, um, high end goods.


  • Um, in Japan, you don't really have - Yeah you have sales obviously, but um, the price for clothing or items are a lot higher than you would see in America.


  • Um, I am not sure if that's because a lot of those products are made in Japan.


  • Um, but basically shopping wise, I find it so much easier and convenient to buy whatever I want here in America compared to Japan.


  • -Did you have any experiences like that? -Yeah, no, the one store that I liked a lot in Japan was Uniqlo. -Uniqlo.


  • But now they have a lot of Uniqlos in the US, and it's growing so, um, no complaints there.


  • -I just saw one in the Beverly Center actually. -Yeah exactly.

    沒有要抱怨的意思。 -我剛剛其實就在比佛利中心看到一個。-是阿沒錯。

  • And I think they're growing, they had one in New York City for a while right? -Um-hm.

    我覺得它們的數量還在增加,有一間在紐約市有一段時間了吧? -沒錯。

  • Yeah, so hopefully Uniqlo grows here because Uniqlo is great with that Heatech, baby!


  • Moving right along, we have watching sports.


  • So you know I am a big NBA fan, um, I watch the NFL.


  • Um, you know obviously those are American, uh, leagues, so It's just hard to watch - If you're a sports fan, it's hard to watch any of your favorite sporting games in Japan.


  • Um, you know, I wanted to keep track of the Warriors and Stephen Curry, my boy!


  • But, uh, you know, it's hard to, I gotta watch the highlight reels, but that's all good because he's, you know, throwing dishes and 3's and stuff.


  • Um, but even like the NFL, I-I don't even know where to find an NFL, uh, channel.


  • Um, so yeah, it's just difficult to keep track of all of those, uh, sporting, um, sporting news, events and games and stuff while living in Japan.


  • Yeah, no, on Sundays in the US, I mean, it's like, football is a religion here.


  • So I mean people would just park themselves on the couch and watch TV all day.


  • But when I was in Japan, you know, you can't really get those games, uh, but I got to watch a lot of sumo though, which is one of my favorite sports.


  • -This dude loves sumo! -Love it.

    這傢伙喜歡相撲! -我喜歡。

  • Moving right along to number seven are gas prices!


  • So, in Japan, like you might think that gas prices are expensive in America.


  • Oh, no no no! You don't know anything yet! Gas prices in Japan are sky-rocket high.

    你還什麼都不知道呢 !日本的油價是天價。

  • Um, basically driving in Japan is really expensive.


  • Um, kind of moving along to number eight too.


  • Parking is... whoa!


  • Like, if you think parking is cheap, uh, oh sorry, if you think parking is expensive in America, basically think parking, especially in Tokyo is basically similar or more expensive than parking in NYC.

  • Um, and, oh, gosh. It's, it's, it's horrible. Like I don't drive, but you always see these parking signs and how expensive they are - it's literally crazy.


  • Um, another one with that goes along with it is - what's it called - is valet parking.


  • Um, America is really big on valet parking at a department store, shopping mall, but uh, in Japan I think, I don't really see much valet parking, um, so basically you have to pay a really big fee to park the car yourself.


  • Um, yeah, do you have anything to add to that?


  • Yeah, I mean parking is, you know, much, much easier obviously because we have much more space in the US.


  • -But, um, it just, it kind of drives everyone towards public transportation over there in Japan. -Yeah.

    但在日本,這也是驅使大家使用公共交通工具的一個原因。 -對。

  • But if you guys don't know, the parking garages sometimes in Japan are really cool. Like, you know, you do this thing where you park and all of a sudden the car, like, would go up.


  • -Like... -Like an elevator. -Like an elevator, yup, and like park itself.

    -像電梯一樣。 -像電梯一樣。沒錯。然後自己停好。

  • And then you know this thing will come back down and a new car comes on, like It's really cool.


  • High tech baby. Japan!

  • So, our number nine is, you can watch Hollywood movies on time.


  • I'm a big movie guy, I love Hollywood, I love movies - Well, I mean I live near Hollywood so as you know.

    你可以按時觀看好萊塢電影。我是一個超級影癡,我愛好萊塢。 我喜歡電影。我是說我住在好萊塢附近,所以你知道的......。

  • -But I love movies... -Movie star.

    -但我愛電影...... -電影明星。

  • We are the movie stars, yeah. We Rockefellers.


  • But yeah, in Japan, movies, Hollywood movies come out sometimes a month to like three months after they come out in America - it's literally insane.


  • Like people in America are talking about the movie, and, you know, three months later I can't even watch the movie.


  • So, like, that's kind of something that I regret, not regret. That's something that I despise about Japan.


  • For how long they take to get the movie rights, It's really insane.


  • Yeah, I mean, especially living in Los Angeles, we have a lot of friends in the movie industry.

    是啊,尤其是住在洛杉磯, 我們有很多朋友在電影行業。

  • So I mean we can watch the movies before they even come out in special premiers, special screenings, things like that so we're are a little spoiled or used to getting things before everyone else so it's tough to you know go some place where you've got to wait a lot later.


  • And our last one is that in America at almost every single restaurant if you don't finish your food, you can take it out.


  • That is, uh, leftover, want to take out, you know, doggy bag?


  • It's called doggy bag? Doggy poop bag? Brown bag takeout?

  • But you can actually take out your food if you left, if it's leftover.


  • Um, in Japan, most restaurants do not allow you, so you are basically throwing away your food, which is really annoying, cause, you know, if I have a very nice burger and I can't finish my burger, and I have half a burger left, I want to eat that for breakfast the next day, you know.

    但在日本,大多數餐廳不允許你。所以,你基本上得扔掉你的食物, 這是真的很煩人。因為如果我有一個很好的漢堡,我不能吃完我的漢堡, 而且我還剩下半個漢堡,我會想把它當做第二天的早餐吃。

  • Yeah, and to me that's crazy, I mean, if you ordered the food, you paid for it, and you know you are planning on eating it later, why can't you take it out, it doesn't make any sense


  • Yeah, I don't understand that policy either.

    而你打算以後再吃,為什麼不能把它拿出來。這沒有任何意義。 -是啊,我也不明白這個規定。

  • Um, and just to you know, round this topic up with a bang you know, America, or at least Los Angeles, has great Mexican food!


  • -But Japan's Mexican food, they need help with the Mexican food department! -They need more Mexicans.

    但是日本的墨西哥食物,他們需要墨西哥食物部門的幫助 ! -他們需要更多墨西哥人。

  • Yes they do. They need more, they need more! So if you can make Mexican food, go to Japan, start a business in Tokyo because I am in Tokyo okay...


  • So if you can make Mexican food, go to Japan, start a business in Tokyo because I am in Tokyo okay.

  • Help a brother out. Give me some burritos, give me some tacos, give me all that - I love Mexican food. Mexican food and I, we are best friends.

    幫兄弟一把。給我一些捲餅,給我一些玉米餅,我喜歡所有的墨西哥食物。 墨西哥菜和我,我們是最好的朋友。

  • So if you know how to make Mexican food, come to Tokyo, okay?


  • -I am talking to you people right there. -And make sure the guac's good.

    我在跟你們這些人說話。 -鱷梨醬一定要做得好吃一點。

  • Make sure the guac's good, give me the sour cream! Yeah. oh yeah!


  • But yeah, if you guys enjoyed this video, please leave a like, please share it.


  • If you guys want to add anything else, please leave a comment down below.


  • Uh, I think that would be, uh, appreciated by many viewers to see, you know, different sides for, you know, this topic.


  • -And I guess I will see you in the next video. Peace. -Peace.

    我想我將在下一個視頻中看到你!再見。 -再見。

Hey guys! So today we are back with another video and we are in a... different setup here back in my, uh, house in Los Angeles.
