Cape Soya is 1,000km from Tokyo at Japan's most northern point. In the height of winter we drive across a snowy Hokkaido to discover what's up there.

  • NOTIFICATION SQUAD: To miss the Natsuki cameo in this video would be a crime! Well folks, you can't beat a good road trip and this was easily one of the most fun videos I've produced in 9 years. A HUGE thanks to my best American friend PETE for coming along for the ride (even if his motives were questionable). You can find him over on Twitch where he streams most nights (🌟www.twitch.tv/premiertwo ) and I look forward to stopping by and doing some shows with him in a few weeks to celebrate surviving our journey.

    • Chris I'm a week late to this vid (sorry) but can I just say that the two of you channeled the spirits of Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau perfectly. Or hell, even Tony Randall and Jack Klugman. I have just watched a 21st century remake of The Odd Couple. Thanks mate.

  • Although it is far too scripted, and I saw the 分かんない/稚内市 dilemma a mile away, it was still, as always, an enjoyable video. Though I understand many times people aren't keen on new people, I always enjoy the people you bring on; Pete being no exception.

  • "... complete with noisy crows." Crow: **Shuts up** The big trolling... Let there be Ainu things! But "red barn"?? Chris, you absolute primitive savage, those aren't barns*! * Barns as 'buildings for housing cattle in'. I confess that my familiarity with names for building types in English is probably lacking. (But I know a freaking barn when I smell one!)

  • Does Japan make Americans and Brits even more awkward and cringe worthy by accident? Or is it just the combination of these two Muppets? One has an obvious alcohol problem can you guess which one? They both look to have graduated the NHK presenter school. At least they're not wearing biking togs. #MoreCoubs

  • 3:00 Those of us who speak Japanese ... We know what's coming.... WAKANAI! I'm sorry I couldn't suspend my disbelief, this is so obvious that it has to be a "bit" that theyre doing for comedic purposes. But its that same feeling when u get forshadowing at the beginning of a shitty horror movie and you call out 10 minutes in the order everyone will die in, and you end up correct. Same feeling 同じだと思いますよ
