  • Sometimes cooperating with the police is way too time-consuming. Often they're just trying to look busy or fulfill a quota. Often, just telling them you're busy and walking away is best. If they don't really need to talk to you they won't try to stop you. Just do it calmly and don't be too physical about it.

  • 1 The Japanese people eat rice that is marked by its origin. No Japanese eat Fukushima rice. The problem is that Fukushima rice and seafood are supplied to hotels filled with tourists, especially Koreans and Chinese , without labeling of their origin.

  • You do not mention one of the most important things about Japan – Tokyo is NOT Japan. It is a weird place where people happen to speak Japanese. The true Japan is OUTSIDE Tokyo.

  • Well, in Germany it depends on the alcohol you want to consume.
    if you want to drink:
    beer, wine and sparkling wine – you need to be 16 years old
    the rest (vodka, booze…) – you need to be 18 years old

  • Police stop me once or twice a year while riding my bicycle. It's a pain cause they check if it's registered to me which takes a while… I've even been stopped on my lunch break.

    But I have to say that Japan has the best police force in the world. I respect them so much. I wish every nation had such an amazing, serving, selfless people serving their communities. They are the kindest, most careful police I've ever interacted with.

    I grew up in America and I know it's difficult to compare the 2 but I came for the police part and that's my take on it

  • So helpful thank you bro don't stop what you're doing a lot of melanated people that I know of would like to visit Japan that are scared and I think your videos are very insightful so I appreciate what you doing and I hope the channel gets bigger

  • Eating and or drinking whilst walking is considered rud? but giving people the ability to smoke more in public areas and places isnt? That's wack, I understand smoking is more prevalent in parts of Japan, but man that's disgusting, I cant stand second-hand smoke, sorry boo id like to keep my pink lungs.

  • Japan is for the Japanese

    Never change for foreigners

  • What if the police stop you and you can't understand them?

  • in my country i can drink with 16 and even younger if parents allow.

  • Woah I'm from Quebec and alcohol is legal at 18. But I think it's 19 in the rest of Canada.

  • 😀💙Love the shirt❤😀

  • how much do you think is the cost of living in Japan? i would love to work there. unfortunately i do not know how.

  • In Europe you can buy alcohol with 18, in Italy maybe younger as there's a culture of drinking wine over dinner.

  • Greetings from Bavaria. Drinking beer is okay if you are 16 years old.

  • Konnichiwa sir.Paolo thanks for advice and tips.wish to go there on Japan soon godbless u solid fan viewer from the Philippines sir vhin😇😇😇☺☺☺👍👍👍👏👏👏👏👏

  • I went to Japan last year at 19 years old thinking the drinking age was 18. I was never once questioned about my age and purchased alcohol without any problems (I’m a 6’5” white male, an anomaly in Japan.) I did get stopped for pictures all the time like I was a celebrity however hahah

  • Great vid. Let your hands flow naturally my friend. It is quite distracting.

  • しょっぱな語尾が悟空なの笑うwww

  • I got sent to the police grope box after tipping at the Izakaya with my penis.

  • I watch your videos because of your personality.

  • Smoking in restaurants is still ok? What year is this….1990?
    Maybe I'll wait til Japan gets its shit together better on that. Second hand smoke SUCKS.

  • Japan is polluted for Nuclear Leak from Fukusima to south area, including Tokyo
    Japan government never allowed to check Nuclear check in person,,.. funny country.. no social movement and very conservative ,, Japanese never apologized what they did like in Waorld War 2 more than Nazi ..and even Abe, their social culture and people is far behind the current other country like Sony has fall down by Samsung

  • I want to go watch shopping at a Seiko boutique there.

  • Here in my country (indonesia) there's no drinking age. There's a lot of teenager that drinks and smoke

  • Fuck the police coming straight from the underground

  • Very good info.. my wife my nephew and I are going in September

  • Good informative video. I love Japan and taking yet another trip there soon. To the narrator, please stop that constant hand waving, it's an affectation you need to curb, very distracting.

  • My brother lives in Osaka was stopped by Police while waiting for me to arrive at Kansai Airport. I had just walked out of Customs and saw 2 plain clothes officers start talking to him. Fortunately he is fluent and they had a great chat, shook my hand and wished me a good time in Japan and left us alone. When in Rome and all that.

  • とても良い動画だったけど、職務質問についての認識だけ間違ってると思います

  • The old man had a second glance at you eating and walking lol

  • Do you pay the police off like in mexico? The USA SHOULD BE ABLE 2 STOP ANYONE LOOKING SUSPICIOUS!!!!!! WTF!

  • Vlog about tax refund for tourist. Thanks a lot

  • You look like you're barely 30… did you move there when you were 15?

  • And in Belgium you're allowed to drink but if you're younger only under supervision of an adult.
    From 18 you can pretty much drink whatever you want. Not that allot of bartenders around here ask for your age tho 🙂 …

  • When I was in roppongi, I scared a few salary men in the restroom due to my sleeve. It was hilarious. I was in the urinal, they came in saw my arm and immediately bowed and left…I laughed so hard

  • every person working in service and watching this video cringing at the same time (not saying anything against the video. The video is good. But it's kind of a mean thing to say that you're so happy you're not expected to tip…)

  • 43mbps …. sorry but that's not super fast not disrespect meant but that's rather slow I generally consider 20mbps ok for internet but most dorms here pretty much offer 1000mbps and you can get it relatively cheap at home for under $70 I would call 200mbps fast and 500+ as super fast. Once everyone gets online 43mbps is absolutely nothing 4 people alone can easily use the full bandwidth of the capsule motel.

  • I usually get stopped because i look lost. so they always ask me if i'm ok

  • That last one wasnt a tip. Its common sense regardless of anywhere you go!

  • can someone tell me about pay as you go sims in Japan?i have one and I was wondering if it would work there ? ive never travelled before !

  • @oslobrewingco ØL!!! Great Norwegian brew

  • In my country You have to be over 18 to buy alcohol, and if you don't look over 18 you have to show your id

  • i really want to carry cash in my pockets all the time … fuck creditcards!

  • Oh man, just wanted to drop some THUMB UP for all the incredible work and time you took making this video!! Wow it definitely look like it took a LOT of time and I want you to know that its very much appreciated.

  • Thank you. Very helpful.

  • How much did the oysters cost you each there?

  • 13:15

    looks suspicious ?_?

    guess i cant be Black in Japan XD

  • Them hands tho

  • i was stopped by police when entering akihabara train station just because i had my hoodie up. Apparently im not allow to have my hoodie up in door? thats stupid im still in a public space

  • Wow.. I think I'm Japanese

  • Vet informative. How do you know if hotels charge per person? I’ve looked at a lot online and never noticed that. Do websites like hotels.com post that?

  • I been to bath houses in Hokkaido with tattoo's with no problems.

  • So I've heard that white folks can get away with violating social stigmas to a certain extent in Japan. Beings how the likelihood of Mr. Johnny American being Yakuza is very very low, I think those of us with tattoos might still be able to get into an Onsen regardless…unless we look real sketchy. Idk tho, given that I've never done that. If there are any white folks with tatts here who have, I'm curious to know you experience.

  • In my lunatic state, the legal drinking age is 21. The catch is EVERYONE has to prove their age, including gray-haired old folks. Did I mention I'm from the dumbest state in the US?

  • In fact i always carry 10 to 20k in my pockets

  • meanwhile in America…

  • I want to go to Japan

    So I can do everything he told me not to 😂😂🤣

  • Meanwhile in Denmark we have no legal drinking age, and you're allowed to buy lighter alcohols at the age of 15 and strong alcohol at the age of 18 :I

  • 💜💙 you shouldn't encourage abuse of power, if you can then stand by your rights

  • if you go to Japan- expect to pay more than you think- just like anywhere else- also, be careful of some of the restaurants – health Issues and hazards

  • Can we hangout when I go to Japan? 🙂

  • In Australia all the kids would take advantage of simply pressing a button for booze

  • Oslo brewing:O ØL!

  • Crime prevention, sounds neat, as long it's as simple as that, would also explain how low the crime rate often is in Japan.
    When you see an obvious suspicious person, one would deem it a logical thing to question them, if they are quite uncooperative or even extremely defensive, even the better reason to question them.
    A thief in a shop, will often, if not always get hyper defensive, when you ask to see their bags, if they refuse and start shaming you, it's normally a dead give away they got something in that bag, they do not wish to open up and show contents of.

  • Japanese law has the right to refuse police questions and baggage inspection.. But reality can't refuse it. If you don't want to answer to police, refuse and call the embassy for help and complain.I hope the Japanese police should make it the standard in North America or Western Europe.

  • Thank you. We are an older couple and will travel thru Japan in Nov and Dec, 2019. We are terrified about the train stations and the challenge about money (cash vs cards), but we are very excited. Thank you for demystifying Japan.

  • So what‘s the difference between Japanes and US police? I don‘t know.

  • Oh shoot, I see a black man 0:57 get hype!

  • You are wrong about room charges. When you rent a room for 1 person they are charging you for half a room. Not charging you double when you add another person. Add a chikd for a small fee. Bet they don't do that in the US. And anywhere out of the city and tourist areaz rooms are pretty cheap.

  • The US should learn from Japan's no-tip culture. I once ate at a ramen restaurant in L.A. run by Japanese, I thought no tip was required yet the lady chased me out of the shop for tip, how embarrassing.

  • 1:06 I was like Dammmnnn, my dude is ballin😂💵💵💵


  • tank you for the information ,,,

  • Didn't understand the police thing. Its quite normal in the EU, that the police can stop you, ask for your ID and take you into custody even if you haven't committed a crime. It's just these stupid US laws, which bound the police and stop them doing their work.

  • I was stopped by police when a friend of mine was putting up his English teaching flyers in Yokohama. A plain clothes officer pushed him and then pulled his badge. He started asking questions kind of forcefully. My friend spoke fluent Japanese so there was no communication issue. When my friend told him he was fighting professionally in Japan the officer changed his approach quickly and let us leave soon after. We just had to take all the flyers down.

  • Any Muslim restaurants in Japan

  • Love Paola’s videos 😍 Helped me when I went to Japan last year! 🙌

  • You should only tip hookers

  • In germany you can buy beer st the age of 16 and Liquor at the age of 18. But if you life or visit shops at villages (not in towns) they will sell you hard alcohol if you look like somone who's old enough. Village kids usally start dinking at the age of 14 to 15 on partys

  • Let's see number one Japanese women are tight it takes a big fat dick to loosen them up

  • fucfuyrgeigcuov

  • Where can I buy ic card at Shibuya station?

  • Hahaha that shirt

  • 2 minutes in and man flexes on us by saying he carries 10-20 dollars in his pocket.

  • Japan: You can drink at 20 years old!
    Most of Europe: Hold my beer I can legally drink starting at 18 years old.

  • I just love coming across piles of cigarette butts where idiots dump their ash trays.
