How to EAT JAPAN | 10 Must Know Food Tips No One Tells You


in this video I’m gonna share with you
guys my top 10 things to know when eating in Japan Japanese food is pretty
awesome as you guys already know from watching some of my previous videos but
in this video I wanted to share with you guys some Japanese restaurant and
Japanese eating tips if you guys think any of these are weird disagree or agree
let me know in the comments section oh and if you want to help support my
channel check out my sushi girl merch I’ll leave a link in the description of
the video alright let’s do this so let’s talk about sharing food in Japan so
Japan has kind of a weird standard when it comes to sharing food so it really
depends on the situation in some situations it’s not okay to share while
other situations it’s okay to share and in some other situations you’re expected
to share it yeah it’s really confusing right first of all it’s not okay to
share here are some examples so ramen shops with limited counter space is it
generally not okay to share the reason why it’s not okay is one they have
limited space and two they usually have a high turnover rate for customers and
they want to get customers in and out and that one seat is really important
for them to be able to make money on so if you take up one of those seats and
you don’t buy a ramen bowl that’s one seat wasted for them but this just
doesn’t only apply to ramen shops generally if a restaurant has a set meal
places that also have limited spaces or whatever when there’s actually a long
line and people are trying to get get in especially during lunchtime and you’re
probably gonna not want to share oh and even nicer sushi restaurants
expect you to order your own meal on the other hand where it’s okay to share your
food is place is like fast food restaurants family restaurants and cafes
so coming from the u.s. it is generally expected when you go to a restaurant
with friends that you go there and you order your own meal at the end of the
meal you just pay for what you ordered but in Japan it’s quite the opposite
when you go to a drinking restaurant also known as an Izakaya, they
expect you to share your food and at the end
everyone just splits the bill or person of the most money sometimes pay if you’re lucky
now if you have children it gets a little bit more tricky it’s okay to eat
in the places that I mentioned above but again you have to really consider what
the restaurant thinks my friends with kids what they do is they actually call
in advance to the restaurant to see if it’s okay to share maybe that’s gonna be
a little bit harder if you don’t speak Japanese but that’s what Japanese people
do so if you don’t speak Japanese then you’re just gonna have to go into the
shop and ask when you arrive basically it’s rude to go to a restaurant order
food and not finish most of it not finishing sides you get a pass but it’s
considered extremely rude to not finish the main course there is some gray area
here so for example if you eat a ramen bowl take down a lot of it and you’re
super cool but there’s still quite a bit left might be considered rude because
it’s still the appearance of not eating that much food on your plate but if
you’re concerned with not being able to finish your meal you can ask them to
reduce the portion size whether it be reducing the noodles or the rice and
they’re happy to do it it’s completely fine oh and one nice
thing though is if you can’t finish all your food this is one time it’s okay to
share the food just as long as the person you’re with also ordered their own meal
what do you guys think Japan is too strict all right so let’s talk about a
Western pastime customizing your meal at a restaurant customizing a meal in Japan
is not very common like requesting no meat in your dish or to take out all
of the onions in general Japanese people tend to not request changes to their meal because they think they’ll offend the chef but if you have an allergy
you should definitely tell them don’t say allergy they won’t understand say ah-re-ru-gi and then what you’re allergic to The reality of it it’s difficult
to do it in Japanese as well so my Japanese friend who doesn’t eat any meat
she always has trouble at restaurants for example she asks a server whether or
not the dish has any meat in it if it does she tries to ask if they’re willing
to take it out the first problem is the server doesn’t really know what’s in the
menu when it comes to a lot of the ingredients so they’ll have to ask the
person who’s making the food people that are making the food are often just
regular workers so they’re not able to change the menu up is so easily they
just follow one recipe for that particular dish as you can see just
going back and forth between the server the cook and yourself
and just trying to figure out what’s in the meal what they can actually change
is a lot of work just in Japanese so if you’re gonna try to do this in English
then you’re gonna be fighting an uphill battle and even though they agree to
give my friend what she wants or what she ordered when the dish comes it’s
actually not what she wanted and there’s meat inside so all in all you can try to
customize your meal but more than likely you’re gonna have issues just like my
Japanese friend one caveat if you go to the really nice restaurants like for
example a nice sushi restaurant and when you place your order with a server they
will ask you whether or not you have any allergies or if there’s anything you
can’t eat so maybe another option is just paying a little bit more and going to a
restaurant that will accommodate your allergies or your diet all right now
here’s some tips for my vegan fans just so you guys know many Japanese dishes
use broth that include meat or fish even some veggie dishes use broth that has a
meat or fish there are restaurants though that do advertise a vegan menu
and those are the ones you should definitely look for otherwise if it’s
not advertised then more likely they’re gonna have broth with meat or fish
although kind of a funny thing I’ve gone to restaurants with my vegan friend and
he’s told him that he’s vegan and it actually asked him if fish was okay the
thing is Japanese just don’t have a lot of education when it comes to
vegetarians many are unfamiliar or simply don’t understand Western diets my
best suggestion for you is to do your research before going to any restaurants
the information is out there what do you say before a meal in all of the streets
videos people are always asking what is Maiko saying Itadakimasu Itdakimasu she’s saying it-ta-da-ki-masu which
literally translates into receiving so basically Japanese people say this when
they’re receiving the food for the first time before they eat the thing is
Japanese people are not saying it for any spiritual reason or they’re really
thankful that they’re receiving the food they just say it because that’s what
they’ve always done that’s what they were taught when they were kids and it’s
just the thing to do so if you want to be more like a local in Japan then say
itadakimasu before you eat all right let’s talk about the unwritten
drinking rule in Japan so when you go to a restaurant especially at dinner they
actually expect you to order a drink whether it be alcohol soda or even tea
so when you go to a restaurant and you order water it might be a little bit
surprised although it’s not the worst thing in the world it’s just kind of
weird in fact when I go to restaurants
sometimes I just order a water when I don’t feel like drinking
the kids just got ice cream actually this might be a good thing they’re
gonna be quiet for a second so we can finish this alright let’s continue and
now when you guys go to restaurants and you see small water cups and the fact
that they don’t serve you water very often during your meal you might know
the reason why so at the end of the day if you want to be more local then do the
local thing in order a drink alright now let’s talk about slurping this one is
probably something you already know but it’s worth covering anyway slurping
noodles or soba in Japan is completely okay in other cultures that may seem
rude but it’s not a problem here in Japan but unlike what a lot of people
believe it doesn’t mean that you’re showing the chef that you really like
their food it’s just what Japanese do like Westerners using a steak knife to
cut a steak let me know in the comments section if that’s what you were told
because I’d really like to know now let’s talk about takeout boxes aside
from fast food spots takeout boxes are not very common in Japan at the end of
your meal don’t expect to be able to get a doggie bag to take home your leftovers
in Japan portions are served relatively small so there’s really never a case
where you’re gonna order way too much food unless you just really go overboard
but Japanese people usually don’t do that that’s maybe why Japanese have
created the word toriaiezu toriaezu means good for now when ordering
in a restaurant so when the server asks you if you’d like to order anything else
you can always say I’m good for now by saying toriaezu. all right so let’s
talk about this one what you do at the end of your meal at fast-food
restaurants including ramen shops you’re expected to put away your plates and
throw away trash when you’re done for trash sometimes you’ll see a very
involved process to throw away your items liquids go here plastic goes here
paper goes here please go here plates go here
mugs go here cups go here and spoons and forks go here you can’t just throw
everything away and one bin and for ramen shops it’s always good practice to
return your bowl at the top counter when you’re finished if the shop has a return
area then it’s always nice to return your plate and your trays there all
right now let’s talk about money paying at the register many restaurants ask you
to pay at the register instead of paying at your table when you finish your meal
don’t worry there’s no tips to worry about in this one well one thing you
should know is that there’s usually a tray that’s right next to the register
where you’re supposed to put your money or your credit card some Japanese and
don’t like to transfer money by hand because they don’t like being touched so
they prefer you using the tray instead it’s not necessarily rude to do so but
some people just prefer it I personally handed over cash to cashiers and they’ve
had no problem with it while at other times I’ve had cashiers directly point
to the tray and asked me to put the money on the tray at the end of the day
it really depends on the person but if you want to play it safe then always put
your money or your credit card on the tray plus in Japan the smallest bills
are a thousand yen so you’re dealing with a lot of coins so it does help to
put the coins on the tray to help keep you from fumbling around with a change
when you’re handing it over to the cashier all right so that concludes my
top ten but something to keep in mind these are generalizations there’s always
going to be exceptions to the rule not all restaurants and not all Japanese people
are like this so you just got to use this kind of as a
guide and play it by ear when you’re in Japan so after hearing my top ten what
do you guys think is it weird is it something that you guys do in your
country or is it completely the opposite but if this video did help you out let

    SLURPING FOOD IS RUDE…ITS TOTALLY DISGUSTING /OFFENSIVE TO HEAR AND MAKES THE PERSON DOING IT LOOK LIKE A SELFISH /GREEDY/UNSENSITIVE /UNCOTH PIG!!……..LIKE THE ENGLISH WOULDNT SLURP TEA….NO NEED FOR IT!!!

  22. Hateranuja says:

    Your channel is so helpful. Thank you very much.

  23. Jake Nuñez says:

    I have this feeling that you’re a Filipino hahaha anyways, thank you for giving us tourists great information about Japan by someone who lives there for decades. This is a more trusted one than those other vloggers from other countries. This is more authentic.

  24. yu kei says:

    After eating, if you say 'gochisousama' or 'gochisousamadeshita', most Japanese people will be pleased. Let's try saying.
    We don't need to order drinks at restaurants and izakaya at night. I don't drink alcoholic drinks, so I order only foods.

  25. Jason DiLaurentis says:

    I hate Vegan people. The ones I met ALWAYS moody, self centered, entitle piece of sh**, unreasonable, not easy to be pleased. Sometime I have to move heaven and earth through hell go above and beyond and then go even further just to find the food for so few precious people.

  26. hxsmajesty mo says:

    I’d always thought you had to slurp your noodles as an appreciation, so you don’t have to then ?!

  27. shinnam says:

    If you go to a bar in Japan are you expected to order some food that the table shares?

    Can you recommend some drinks that one might try? For example in Korea they have dongdong Ju, unfiltered rice wine, that can also be brewed with pumpkin, black beans, corn and onion. I lived there 6 months before some one taught me about it.

    itadakimaus, it sounds like Eat a ducky mouse

    Customizing food seems to a very North American thing. In Europe it is not so common to even see salt on the table. Vegans have a hard time in Korea too.

    In Korea you are supposed to leave some food, otherwise thehost/restaurant hasn't been generous enough. That seems strange given how it hasn't been 50 years since most Koreans were malnourished. S. Korea throws away more food than North Koreans get to eat.

  29. Ginka Stoynova says:

    In Bulgaria we also have a self-serv restaurants and we also put away our trays in similar way.

  30. prasan0011 says:

    You make equality videos …

  31. Majime says:

    first time i visited Japan, just last week i was so exited about the food i made the mistake of ordering more than i can eat. if you want to bring home food you should bring your own doggy bag. they obviously don't know what it is, whether you speak their language or not.

  32. Rufty says:

    Thanks for this video. I understand that changing the whole meal can be tricky. But what about toppings? How can I say in Japanese: please no bonito flakes on top?

  33. Bill Boyer says:

    Someone who doesnt like being touched i can respect the tray. I like it! Thank you for all these videos. I'm planning a trip to Japan and your videos have been hands down amazing

  34. neal tran says:

    can you make one video on Izakaya: Eating with complete strangers in Japan?

  36. Jim Muncy says:

    Did he mention tipping? Maybe I missed it. I wonder if they tip, and if so, how much?

  37. BabyMooMoo 96 says:

    I'm from America and if I slurped my food I'd be in big trouble.

  38. Fatchance89 says:

    To me the slurping would be very difficult to hear, I can't stand the sound of food being slurped. I understand and ok with it that it's a cultural thing but my nightmare would be to be eating in a large ramen restaurant where 20-30 people are going at it at the same time. Is it considered rude if you're eating your food the 'normal' way? Btw fun fact – I almost choked on my coffee while writing this spitting it all over my desk (and there was no slurping included).

  39. tevi blekhman says:

    5 is my pet peeve I’ll just start eating

  40. dqcruz32 says:

    I've notice you don't say "Itadakimasu"??

  41. risecakoplusplus says:

    I think sometimes they asked if "fish is okay?" Because some Muslims asked for vegan foods but they actually can eat fish but not meat. Just assumptions.

  42. Andrew Ryan says:

    Dude I've been watching the shit out of all your videos. I'm hooked.

  43. Boniface Muriuki says:

    slurping is considered rude back home….I noticed you do that at the new years and I was shocked!!

  44. Rock girl says:

    through hell go above and beyond and then go even further just to find the food for so few precious people.

  45. Flood Panel says:

    Good info!

  46. KG88 KiteGod says:

    I'm so glad I watched this before my trip to Tokyo…I never drink ramen broth.. on a level of 1 – Murrrka how rude am I ??

  47. marie takano says:

    thank you nice video

  48. Liberty Eli says:

    Thanks for all your great videos . Japanese culture is amazing and fascinating, I work as a server and love serving them. Magic in the culture

  49. Senjin Omukae says:

    "because they don't like being touched" lol

  50. Arian Recica says:

    I have to be honest, there is no chance that I would finish a meal I PAID FOR just because it would in some way insult the staff.

  51. An account says:

    I guess the price is still kept the same even if you tell the staff to reduce the portion? I can never finish a whole portion and now that I also can't use the doggie bag option, I wonder if I'll always end up paying for a whole portion, eating half of it, and offer the rest to my boyfriend or, will it be possible to order let's say, half a portion? Is half a portion even a thing at a usual Japanese restaurant?

  52. MMKG Inc says:

    SO BASICALLY… JAPAN SUCKS LOL

  53. Brian Smith says:

    I have problem with the use of MSG in bento or pre cooked dishes and some restaurants. I get extreme headaches . It is used heavily in Japan.

  54. Horse_Relish75 says:

    I can never get used to the money tray, I mean they're still going to grab it anyway.

  55. Bobby Fleck says:

    Do a video with your vegetarian friend and show us all her hit spots!

  56. Brad Johnsen says:

    What about tipping?

  57. Kanisto says:

    can you shut the fuck up and dont show you face and just replace with caption?

  58. Tamara Herring says:

    how to say some small key words like thank you and goodbye. To be polite..

  59. Annika M. says:

    Can anyone give me a tip on how to slurp the ramen without choking on them? I am trying to "vacuum" the noodles into my mouth without inhaling them into my lungs..
    I actually can't eat ramen when my boyfriend is home because he can't stand the sound of slurping the noodles..
    I was told that you normally don't bite off the noodles that don't fit in your mouth so I have to slurp them in.

  60. Grace A. says:

    No way in hell will I share my ramen.

  61. Ayush Jindal says:

    He did that "if you wanna help support my channel.." twice. Look at his shirt. 0:29

  62. A GW says:

    5:49 wth why your niples are so high up??

  63. hkewpie88 says:

    Ordered Sta Don bowl. Served with raw egg….not sure what to do with that? Also, I'm not sure what the meat was….seemed like boiled bacon

  64. 7eguegueh says:

    Just curious. What if you spill your food on accident? Is it seen differently? or is it just the same as any other country?

  65. Goviki says:

    I had a really big problem with hearing all the people slurping in Japan… I've got misophonia and it was actually causing me a lot of physical and psychological pain therefore I needed earplugs whenever I was going to eat in ramen shop. In general Japan is not friendly to people with misophonia but I love it anyway 😉

  66. Troy Clark says:

    Thank you for the video, Thumbs up.

  67. Cap G says:

    Slurping just in general seems annoying and rude. But that's just me. Feel like only a kid would it.

  68. Furkan Kurtulus says:

    There is nothing “western” about being vegetarian.

  69. RuSomeKindaIdiot says:

    Question. When ordering Dog in Japan are they listed on the menu by breed or their pet name?

  70. tarsitano66 says:

    Hi, Paolo
    You didn’t mention about toilet yet…!
    How works toilets in Tokyo…?!?
    Thanks

  71. James Doster says:

    I have a friend who was born in China, but moved to Japan at a fairly young age. Her and her family have always been either vegan or vegetarian. She said that it was common to mention a Buddhist style diet or dish to get the point across. She was usually understood.

  74. Joshua White says:

    I was told that slurping meant you enjoyed the food. I watched this video many times and just caught that. Weird. The more you know, thanks Paolo!

  75. Joe Xu says:

    Oh no I would be extremely nervous throwing trash in Japan!

  76. The | Mouse Warrior ® says:

    Great How To Video, definitely giving me ideas for new how to videos on my CHANNEL !!❤❀ヅ❤♫ =P

  77. Creative real in mind says:

    The Fukushima products are supplied to the hotels and restaurants in everywhere Japan. Then they will provide the food to Olympian in Tokyo 2020 Olympic. The cynicism of branding this “the Recovery Olympics” can also be seen in the streets of Fukushima.

  78. FlowerofDissolution says:

    I've seen vegetarian and vegan food being discussed before online, and the best tip I caught from that discussion was to order food that Budhist monks eat – that's how you can convey the idea or vegetarian food. But, veganism/vegetarianism as a "diet choice", does not make much sense in Japanese culture. Fish is a central element in near all cooking, so that's what you're gonna get if you order Japanese food.

    Another tip, is to eat non-Japanese food, like going to an Indian restaurant. That sort of defeats the purpose of going to Japan in the first place, so perhaps that's a bit disappointing. But, it was one tip I've heard from vegan/vegetarian foreigners talking about living in Japan for an extended period of time. It's one way to ensure you can order vegetarian options from the menu.

  79. FlowerofDissolution says:

    About the doggy-bag situation, to me that's such an American thing. It's not proper to ask for that in many European countries either. You're expected to eat up or as much as you can and leave the rest. It's just weird and slightly rude to expect the restaurant to serve you two meals for the cost of one. Which also gets us back to each person ordering their own meal – that is a thing outside of Japan as well. You don't generally share food unless you're at a tapas restaurant or something similar. I don't think you'll get kicked out, but it's just strange and reeks of cheapskate; why are you not eating a meal of your own?! And you don't share your meal with your kids either, for the same reason. Personally, I've never seen that living in Europe.

    I have food allergies, which is a concern of mine when I travel. Could you do an episode around this?
    For example, I can’t have anything with shellfish (or was prepared with gloves or tools that touched shellfish) and I can’t have any tea/matcha 🙁

    How can I navigate eating in restaurants with those medical issues?

    I love rules but Japan takes it to the extreme where it is onerous rather than helpful.

    I think Japanese can be PASSIVE-RUDE – I once eating in East Village and the Japanese waitress ordered me to put my credit card on the tray!!! WTF was that I'm in NYC!!! If they don't wanna being touched GUESS WHAT – Don't be a FUCKING waitress!!! 😒

    Might be tricky to eat in Japan. I had weight loss surgery. I never finish my meals and I share with others a lot. Asking for smaller portions might be the best tip ever. I’ll try using that here in the states too.

    Slurping soups and ramen aerates the soup and allows the flavors to come out. Like wine tasters when then suck in air after taking a sip to aerate the wine. You get a fuller flavor and aroma than you would if you don't slurp. It also cools it a bit as it's going into your mouth. I find that Asians like their soups served much hotter than Westerners. So slurping keeps your lips and tongue from being scaled by the piping hot soup.

    slurping food is rude straight out…i don't give a fuck what culture your from. Yea america has some stupid ass shit too but they have table manners right at least. don't splash your fucking soup across the table in my fucking face….and fucking chew with your mouth closed before i fucking knock you the fuck out.

  94. Victor Zhukov says:

    Great. Thank you men…

  95. JCB Driver says:

    You should've just said Americans and vegans, just don't bother coming to Japan because ya'll ignorant assholes…

  96. Roland Jude says:

    I noticed in most of your videos that you keep chopsticks in the bowl. In Chinese culture they say never to leave it in anytime as it looks like sticking incense sticks when praying. What's your view?

  97. Guy says:

    It sounds like Japan has OCD issues, or autism

    You should be recruited by the Japanese Tourism Board
