  • Published on Dec 10, 2016
  • Wagyu (和牛肉) literally means "Japanese beef". MATSUSAKA wagyu is hailed as the greatest beef in Japan and we went to try it firsthand.

    I love your videos man. I haven't known for a long time what my dream was. For the past year or so I have been thinking non stop about Japan. Your videos make this dream so much more tangible than I ever thought. I'm 23 now and dream of moving to the country before I'm 30. Using the information in your videos, and my own perseverance I can't wait to go.

    Do you have Ryotaro in your will or something? He seems to like putting you into situations in which you could die horribly... Climbing a cliff with no safety gear, filming near a Japanese hornet, ski jumps into water, paragliding...

      Japanese egg has a really strict quality control. It's safe to eat it raw and you don't have to worry about getting sick.

    No matter how good a steak or cut of beef might be, it's going to taste like poison in my mouth if I know I paid 320 dollars for a slice of beef. I'll stick to my packets of instant ramen for now, thankuverymuch.

    • Daichi Hirata

      Eesa F That’s a shame.😥
      But I doubt raw eggs are worth eating if you have to sacrifice your health to eat them.
      You should try it just once if you possibly come to Japan and that would be enough.

    • Eesa F
      Eesa F 3 months ago

      Daichi Hirata I actually wish we had that, I bet the egg in this video seriously enhances the flavour however in England I cook pot noodles and sometimes very mjnorly undercook and I get sick the following night and vomit...sad times

      In Japan, not only expiration date for eating but also expiration date for RAW eating is written on the packages of eggs.
      As long as you eat a row egg before the date, it’s fine.

    Disappointing , You spent more on Airfare , Boat and car rental then you disappoint me with Sukiyaki beef, you didn't spend $320 for steak ?? oh right because you would have to buy your guest another $320 for total of $640 before tax and tip. Wake up man you make between $10,000 and $40,000 with 3.6 million views. Go back and do this vlog again and get it right next time ,,,, THAT'S AN ORDER

    Frankie Winters 6 months ago +2

    It almost seems like some kind of attrocity to take meat of such a high quality and then wack it in a cold pan with soy sauce and sugar ... let alone the raw bloody eggs! I'm sure it's delicious though but I'd need to at least try a 1'' cube chunk of it, seared and medium rare, cooked only in a drop of olive oil just to really get the taste of the nothing but the meat!

I read a text which started this way "I've meet my favourite actress Julia Robert, from Glascow..." XD
