    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.

    1. Abroad in Japan

      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.

      1. genta terashichi

        Did you go to Oshamembe? It's my hometowm.

      2. DJ Pâtes

        Play on words puns... Yabai yabai

      3. Katanamast279

        You guys are an awesome duo. You have to do the trip to the most southern point in Japan. That would be epic

      4. Harpie

        The sarcasm in Chris' English is just too freaking hilarious

      5. Melanie Camis

        Would you redo someone's planned vacation that they have done already?

    2. Jan Folke Rørvik

      They are going into the freezy winter wilderness sticks, and wearing their Tokyo slicker best...

    3. Sleepy Kittens

      I don't comment too often but this was so enjoyable I thought I should !

    4. Levi Newcomb

      Kansas is also famous for the TV show Supernatural.

    5. syamim sanusi

      lol Natsuki hahahha

    6. bpoon2k2

      Puts a smile on my face when you mentioned Ghost of Tsushima

    7. Martin Day

      Very well filmed and edited video

    8. Luis Liu

      I' ve been there once when I was in university with my classmates, this video makes me nostalgic.

    9. GeneralChangOfDanang

      Bean bag chairs? London guide book? Is Natsuki hiding in a closet somewhere?

    10. Vugen18

      Natsuki!! I love his laughter

    11. natassa 123

      I think everyone from sweden can relate to feeling quite confused at 0:52

    12. Dhruv Ishan Bhardwaj

      Sometimes, Chris you remind me of Mr Bean

    13. Shiba the Ghost

      Some of these shots are absolutely incredible!

    14. arigato22

      I'd do the same thing too.... LOL. If someone bought me something and I broke it, and if opportunity came, I'd travel to replace it. Also, I've always wanted to go to Hakodate. I think I went to Fukuoka instead. At that time I was leaving in Japan and they were two opposite ends so I didn't have time. I was in Otaru in the middle of winter ages ago too. I still have winter snow boots that I bought there and never wear (in Australia) now.

    15. Lennon Blobvis

      Great vid pleas like it would meen the world

    16. Doommagic

      Pete: "As far south as we can go in Okinawa." Do it! Do it! The Yaeyama Islands are the southernmost inhabited islands, right? I wanna see that!

    17. here4catsandfood

      As soon as you introduced "your best American friend" I was like 'oh shittt' and immediately scrolled down to the comments to see what shenanigan's we were about to enjoy. I was most surly not disappointed. XD

    18. Kayla F

      Now go to Canada

    19. thijnsybren

      Wow Chris, how did you get Daniel Bruhl on the show

    20. cuteteahoru

      Hakodate is sister cities with the capital city of my province in Canada! It's sister city is Halifax, Nova Scotia! A lot of the buildings are similar to those at our famous port city!

    21. The King of Antarctica

      This is way better than most blogs I've seen in SEprom. The British and American in you two bounce off each other in a very fun way.

    22. Vincent Santos

      Idk, but pete has a Chris Farley vibe. That is a compliment.

    23. Matty37

      This was actually fun and I think Pete did a good job with he acting

    24. Liberata Di Nocera

      Can't wait for the summer trip to Japan's southernmost point 🏖

    25. Cekrom

      5:42 The snow fits perfectly =D

    26. Smdn Snnd

      Anyone noticed that he's only going on road trips with other men?...

    27. vandry

      What about the other Chris, Jake n Bake, and Aki? 😢

    28. Franklin Romero


    29. Niels VdV

      These videos make my day allot better, I pray I can travel to Japan one day myself.

    30. Wannabeisekied

      18:08 the guy has iPhone 12 max pro fam!!🤣

    31. Gregory Chew

      22:50 best part of video where Chris goes ".... WHUT"

    32. blankautumn

      Seemed that “Pete”s are pretty eccentric people. And this Pete is like an American version of Ryotaro. ;)

    33. FastBoi

      I must say This type of collab is needed more for resaearch purpose

    34. Noritosaurus

      I lost it when Chris said *RIDICULOUS* to the Stonehenge replica 😂

    35. elwingy

      this is one of your best filmed trips Chris!

    36. Jason Crouse

      About halfway through the phone call I saw the joke coming. I've lived in Hokkaido for a year now, and it doesn't take that long before that play on words comes up a few times. Really enjoyed the video! Thanks for the shot of Mt. Yotei at the beginning. Very cool to see the mountain I live next to show up on your channel.

    37. Adams42

      After seeing that "Sematary", did anybody else wonder why there was no trace of that weird "Ancient Alien" Guy (aka Giorgio A. Tsoukalos) all over that place... telling People ..."Aliens, the only explanation"

    38. dame104

      Pete seems to be the kind of guy who hypes you up in an adventure. Also quite a character, i'd love me some friend with the same excitement as Pete.

    39. TheRileyss

      Pete seems like so much fun to travel with

    40. KillerTacos

      Brilliant video Chris! Pete is such a legend. We need him in more videos!

    41. SenseiEpu

      That mug replacement plot had to be one of the funniest anti-climaxes ever. I laughed my head off! A great video overall though. Beautiful scenery.

    42. Ready Set Japan! [Exploring Japan’s Outback]

      Looks like everyone is going north for golden week. What an adventure of a trip!

    43. Dan Daniel Nakamura

      Great video as always! Thank you. That was funny when you guys called Natsuki 🤣

    44. Zombieman4

      This Pete guy is a bigger dork than you are Chris.

    45. Harry's Travel Videos

      The Grand Adventures Of Frankie Muniz and Marty McFly

    46. Rob_in Japan

      This guy is just a massive tool

    47. Reid Zimmerman

      As a kansan, I feel attacked

    48. S Alam

      This video was so good. I usually take my time and don't watch these videos as soon as they're uploaded and this is my best experience yet

    49. S Alam

      God some of the shots, like the one at 10:25 add so much charm and style to the video it's indescribable. I've just been smiling at my screen like an idiot for 10 minutes now. This is one of the best things I've seen. I never thought travel vlogs could be this much enjoyable.

    50. Carl Neoh

      Pete: *explaining why the trip will be awesome and worth it. Chris: 🗿 On a serious note though, this video is one of the best Abroad in Japan videos I've seen, definitely underrated. The highlights were the contrast between a stereotypical British and American and the way Chris closely accepts the trip, seemingly like a tsundere. Truly hilarious

    51. crumbs

      I like drunk Bradley Cooper

    52. Jim John-un

      Great duo. Really funny

    53. MoonSh0ttAlch3mist

      Chris and Ryotaro GO TO TSUSHIMA ISLAND

    54. Schnoz

      Pete's a madman, those curry cup noodles are disgusting.

    55. 大切な人を守って

      half of Hokkaido is already owned by the Chinese and so as Osaka. you're aforeigner,you maybe need not be careful getting infected by the corona. corona’s mission is get rid of the Japanese still living in there refusing to sell exactly like what the virus is doing in Italy,UK,America etc.

    56. Dom The Elegy

      "It tastes like dogpiss" How fitting. Staying in an American style house while drinking American style beer-like alcoholic beverage.

    57. kongman27

      chicken is life , does this man have no class

    58. W Q Fong

      Added having a cup noodles in the snow to the bucket list 😋

    59. bigmike solis

      Pete i dub thee the toilet man. Hoping to see more of him on the channel, his energy is very nice and makes the whole experience more fun

      1. serdy ximi

        Chris really unironically just found American natsuki

    60. Red Samurai

      I didn't know I needed to experience eating noodles in the snow until I watch this. 😆

    61. Gray Thexry

      It’s been 4 days and that Wakkanai bit still has me dead

    62. FrogQueenie

      Beautiful! When was this filmed? :o (Is there snow like that in April in Hokkaido? :O)

    63. liz g

      chris you might need to invest in a warmer coat

    64. Audrey Oddity

      Your friend Peter is absolutely adorable! How sweet. You guys form good energy together.

    65. sydur graham

      Pirates ARE cool, innit.

    66. flor zorro

      One of your best videos

    67. D Addison

      The whole time I was like, "Oh shit I would have thought wakanai was I don't know." and sure enoughhh...

    68. CallsignAllfather

      I love you Chris

    69. Anthony St. James

      I love the chemistry between Pete and Chris, more videos like this!

    70. H. C.

      Kansas man hurts my ears and soul.

    71. el blanco _

      Natsuki is pure charisma.

    72. arphyl

      Kinda expected that Wakannai and Wakkanai. 😂😂😂

    73. IrishRepoMan

      I've made long trips for a mug... Hutton Orbital anyone?

    74. Terry R.

      Because I speak SOME Russian, i was TEMPORARILY involved in the K.A.L. 007 incident (the Soviets shooting-down of the Korean Airliner), so I transferred off the U.S. Navy ship, via a crazy helicopter hoist, onto the USS Wichita (AOR-1 NOT the CA-45), & went to WAKKANAI to catch the S-1 TRASER to MASWA airbase, then to Yokota & back to Yokosuka; so I know EXACTLY where WAKANAI is; how far north & how BLOODY cold it can be there!

    75. sooraj sutar

      I like how you express ur journey with funny things and ur friend is awesome. There should be one partner who is always mad that make journey fun. Love from india Hope u reply😉

    76. Kaga Kai

      Chris really unironically just found American natsuki

    77. Andi Saputro

      More videos featuring Pete please

    78. futurespells

      I would absolutely watch a series in this style.

    79. Akbar Brojosaputro

      Hands down one of my favorite episodes 😂😂😂

    80. Kei Kei

      This was amazing!! ♥

    81. Sweetie Peas

      Oh my goodness, Pete is adorable! 💖

    82. Amber Arizmendi

      I feel like the beds getting closer and closer was no mistake. Anyone else?

    83. David E

      I feel a bromance.lol

    84. Benny Grau

      why was I imagining them in a slice-of-life anime and expecting him to break the mug and have a sad cry face at the end.

    85. NuclearWarGaming

      Pete is fantastic, and It's easy to see the Joy of Chris too, in his eyes. I guess they really are best friends ^_^

    86. DvX Official

      Odk but I read "i drove to Japan...extreme not!"

    87. Eric S.

      If there is someone from Kansas involved in anything The Wizard of Oz will always come up, we're legally required to mention it at least 3 times a day.

    88. merlan1818

      Do a series together

    89. Cole Mitchell

      Show me a man who matches the enthusiasm of pete... and I'll show you, a mirror.

    90. Rich Frangiamore

      Pete is *great*. Even better is the combination of Chris and Pete. Now, add some Natsuki, and...

    91. Kampf Keks

      Can't wait for the next video where Pete and Chris explain what Kintsugi is. One broken mug equals two videos seems like a fair deal.

    92. /:

      "Don't say it, don't say it, don't say it you fucking bastard." "Oh my god he's going to Snowpoint City."

    93. James V

      As they say, "what a twist" 😉

    94. Sergio Henriques

      Mug breaks. Japanese culture: Wabi-sabi teach us to embrace the flawed or imperfect, and Kintsugi provides... Pete: Road trip to buy a new one Chris: Rightio old chap

    95. Kiwi Kibayashi

      Love the vibe you two were giving during the whole trip. Thanks for showing us another beautiful scenery of Japan. I also heard in Wakkanai that you actually weigh a bit more than you do in Tokyo due to the latitude difference.

    96. Temerivia

      That exchange with Natsuki is the funniest shit I've seen all day

    97. Cyrille Segers


    98. Mar's Lonely Planet

      You should definitely bring him again in one of your trips 🤣😂 fun team

    99. Avery B

      What goes on in Kansas? Absolutely nothing

    100. Jana S

      Haha, I feel like I just watched Garfield and Odie on a road trip. Highly entertaining!
