48 Hours in Asakusa, Tokyo | 6 Things To Do
Asakusa is one of Tokyo's most iconic quarters. We spend 48 hours in Asakusa and eat, drink, bathe and explore our way around the city! And unfortunately, we're doing it with Ryotaro.

    Hello, Mr. Broad. I am a big fan of your series. I enjoy each video. I was wondering if you could start making like 2 q and a videos a month. I enjoy the while series, but the comment videos are the best in my opinion. Thank you either way

      you can watch his video about how covid is affecting Japan. Although it is from like a year ago, the stuff you can get from it are still quite informative if you do still plan to go to Japan with the Corona all about.

    Could you make a video or any kind of commentary on the Japanese judicial system? I've heard that it's very unfair and I would love to see your view on the matter.

  • NicknameGeneratorFailed

    Camera lady appears, criticized for eating too long, moment later in the bath Chris nonchalantly mentiones there's only he and Ryotaro left. Next camera girl needs to eat fast else she could get fired way too quickly ;0 hehe.

    #ASKABROAD Hey Chris, I'm wanting to take a vacation and visit Osaka and maybe Tokyo. Was planning on staying for a week total in Japan, Love the Japanese culture and beautiful sites, But I really suck at the language... Are there personal guides or something like that for only English speaking tourists? P.S. Screw them asshole haters, Your Channel is awesome!.

    This episode. I said you look more Japanese today with a British accent first time I’ve ever thought that watching your video. I used to watch it in the mornings eat Raman and fish in the morning watching aggretsuko. My secret ingredient is honey and salt

    (Probably) unpopular opinion: I do enjoyed this Ryotaro more than the more recent ones with Natsuki, as this was more comedic than excentric. (but that's just me! and my gf)

    Been rewatching journey across Japan. I think Chris needs to cycle again but this time from cape soya to cape sata the true cycle acros Japan.

  • Shifty

    When we visited Asakusa for the first time we stayed in the 9hours capsule hotel there, it has a beautifull view onto the tempel area from the lobby ... and then there was what we dubbed the "adventurepark of doom" that primarily grabbed our attention. All the rides looked so rusty and like you´d die if you go on them. The park was closed due to the pandemic but the sight alone gave me chills.

  • Marksman

    So I know you recommend learning Kanji and their pronunciations spelerately. How do I do that with a core 1000 vocab deck on Anki? The decks have Kanji and spoken Japanese together so I can't learn them seperately. Any advice? Thanks!

  • spartaman64

    i cant look at these onsen scenes the same way after seeing the cameraperson. though its probably just my american puritan mindset

      i think there's only chris and ryotaro at the onsen, chris mentioned it in the video, that ryotaro was behind the camera .

  • TheBaldr

    3:00 You'd be surprised the number of UZmilkrs that live in the apartment building next to the golden beer building.

  • TheBaldr

    Wouldn't be surprised that hidden jam is the name of an escort service in Asakusa.

  • Aliengare

    I'm not sure where to send ideas, so here it is: How about a series where you sail by ferry "Abroad from Japan" to all available locations (vladislovstok-russia, busan-korea, etc etc), each one showing your journey on the craft (maybe "The Boys" attend one adventure, "The Gals" on another, etc etc...).

    i don't hear the word quintessential very much , so when Chris kept saying it i was expecting him to say quintessential quintuplets. Maybe i've been watching too much anime.

    I know it won't happen but I think a great video would be to go shooting. Japan if I remember is very anti gun but god the footage of seeing a Japanese man fire a shotgun for the first time. Priceless. Hell I'll give you guys a place and some guns to shoot if you ever came to the states

  • Jing

    Really awesome to see a cute female cinematographer behind these videos. Not that biological sex should matter if it's good quality shoots. But in my part of the world, we still sometimes hear things such as equipment is heavy, girls can't handle it, etc. Great job Alex!! Definitely would visit Asakusa again when I'm in Tokyo next.

    Hello Chris. I started watching ur movies/series this year. I have now watched allmost all the shows/series. Dating back to the ones from 8 years ago! What a change in quality lol. Right now I'm 50% through your Cycling journey across Japan. I love watching these everyday videos, and I love ur soothing accent and voice! Keep it up! So yes, ur still getting new viewers/subs! - Bit of an odd question. I'm still farily new to the channel, but I was wondering what your working with in Japan? As far as I understood, your not a teacher anymore. Are you able to live off of your Youtubin life now? Best Regards!

    Is Ryotoro filling in for Natsuki today? He seems to be reading the script that was written for Natsuki... hidden jam? More strawberry than strawberry? Subterfuge I call it.
