What a Japanese Summer BBQ is Like

(AIKO) Hello, world! Where I’m from in Japan, this is what a summer barbecue is like. (GREG) OK, Aiko. What’s a Japanese summer barbecue like? (AIKO) Well, it’s different like as America and Canada, and, well, Canada has big meat, and Japan has smaller meat I can eat like in one bite, and there’s lots of vegetables. (SOUTA) Ah, It’s hot!!! (GREG) And where is your hot dog bun? (AIKO) Um… We just eat the hot dog. Well you put lots of fish and stuff that comes from the sea. (GREG) And you also cook on these things… Are those called “hibachi”?
(AIKO) No. (GREG) No. What are those called?
(AIKO) Grill. (GREG) On grills. OK.
(AIKO) Yeah. When they put the fire on, they put coal and newspaper and they burn it. (GREG) And what is this called?
(AIKO) Yakisoba. (GREG) And that’s pork and vegetables and… uh… soba noodles!
(AIKO) Yup. (SHIN) I’m swimming! It’s not deep. It’s just like this. But it’s still fun. It’s my super gun. Woooaaaaa!!! (GIRL) Stop it! (SHIN) I ate almost all of the grapes.
(GREG) I know. I saw you. You had a huge pile. (SHIN) And I ate it with no like munching. (GREG) No munching. You just swallowed it?
(SHIN) Yup. (GREG) And what is this?
(AIKO) “Nagashi somen”. (GREG) And what is “nagashi somen”? (AIKO) Um… There is a noodle called somen and then you put it in a machine and goes around. (MAN) How is it, Shin-chan? (AIKO) Thanks for wathching! See you next time. Bye! What’s a summer barbecue like where you’re from?

    Love this type of barbecue! Focusing on more seafood and vegetables than the classic hamburgers and hotdogs!

  4. David Ben-Abraham says:

    Lots of fun! Those rice noodles look delicious! I learnt something new: The Japanese eat their "hot-dogs" without the bun.

    A summer here in New Zealand, is the same time as Christmas, so we go to beaches or pools, cook them up there sometimes, opening presents and visiting friends and family! 😊 We mostly eat huge variations of salads, fish and chips, big meats and lollies all day long! ❤️

  42. Yubi K. says:


  43. Angel Rose Raju says:

    I don't usually see anyone from Japan commenting these videos, I've been watching the channel since a few days actually. Why is that so?! I mean if someone post a video about Indian food or something the comments will be flooding with indian comments.

  44. T J says:

    hmmm.. yummyy yum yum… great video

  45. RetroIslandBoy says:

  47. clip012 says:

    We call that dark green bitter melon "peria katak". Literally translated to "frog bitter melon". Well, the skin kinda look like one. 😂

  48. Mr Nobody says:

    Aiko's ears are so cute like mickey mouse

  49. Maria S says:

    Our summer bbq in the az reservation is we butcher a sheep and we take all the meat and liver , intestines , and it’s fat (almost the whole sheep) and we cook it then eat it

  50. esrisuren says:

    Omggggg that noodle machine !,,,,

  51. Tiffany Martinez Videos says:

    Tbh I want to try the food from Japan

  52. Jabangstyle says:

    I own exact the same pool and I live in Germany

  53. TheBlockBreakers says:

    This looks better than an Australian BBQ, and no mistake. Granted, we have usually 30kg of Steak for all the people, but I still prefer the look of the Japanese one. Also, it would be nice to have a summer that didn't have multiple days above 45 degrees (C); I'm moving to Japan ASAP!

  54. Phoenix says:

    Summer is non-existent in the UK

  55. Raha Hossain says:

    I am so hungry it looks tasty 😯

  56. Georgia Ewington says:

    my mother makes yaksoba all the time which i find strange because we are english and have never been to japan and it isn’t a food i’ve seen in my country before.

  57. Val Vino says:

    That reminds me of my family growing up.

  58. Sonika and Alex says:

    Im from Canada

  59. Nathanael Caine says:

    It's so strange to see a summer bbq without beer… and grilled ribs… lol
    But aside from the types of food…and the variety of it, it seems like bbq's are similar to anywhere else in the world I've seen.

    In India, Traditionally we don't have BBQs. Instead, we have Tandoori ovens/grills. But we do have it in restaurants only. Tandoori roti (bread), Tandoori chicken are the most popular dishes.

  96. jaxsun72 says:

    Summer BBQ where I am from is we light a fire that is too big, and too hot. Some children get burned beyond recognition if they get too close, but it's okay because we eat them too. We don't like to waste.

  97. Jesse Ling says:
