I think you should watch Osen (2008) live action drama played by Aoi Yuu, Osamu Mukai , and Hiroki Uchi ... Or just read the manga written by Shota Kikuchi. They informed me about katsuobushi and another kind of bushi. Moreover , they also talked about miso !!

Hi Simon and Martina, so I've been following you guys for a bit and Simon makes his obsession with ranch quite obvious so I was wondering if you guys have heard of the Twisted Ranch restaurant. It's a restaurant that makes all their foods with ranch and they have 27 different ranch flavors that they make in house. I have never been there but I found a video about it today and the food looks amazing. I just wanted to share this bit of info. The link for the video is below.

How long does miso stay good? I've had a half container of red miso in my fridge for probably a year.

this was a really cool video and I learned a lot but I still need to learn HOW TO TRAIN MY CAT TO LICK ME WHEN I MAKE KISSY NOISES, HOW DID YOU DO THAT?! Please please please make that video next.

Author mina mii19 ( ago)
This is awesome! I just bought miso, and now I know how to actually use it. I thought it was used like a condiment before I watched this video.

Author Miranda Vaught ( ago)
Aunt in Japanese is 伯母さん (Obasan) not to be confused with お祖母さん (Obaasan) which means "Grandmother"

Author Eden Zak ( ago)
Kombu is basically kelp. You'll most likely find it in organic store. May not be the exact same subspecies or whatnot but it pretty much tastes the same...

Author Twitchy Mitsuki ( ago)
Hello Simon and Martina,
We were planning to go to Tokyo, Japan on April 20 thru the 24 but we are having a difficult time looking for a private tour guide. We would appreciate it if you can help us contact any guides or websites would be great.
Thank you for you time

You guys have no idea how happy I am that you made this video. I've been wanting a good recipe for miso soup since forever! 😋

Author T de Lioncourt ( ago)
oh and, I didn't teach my cat to lick me when I make kissing sounds,
BUT I tought my parent's cat to play hide and seek since there is a huge garden there, I start running and hide behind a tree or smth, and later the cat comes running to me so I try to catch him and he runs away, he gets sooo crazy when we play. ^^

And a day I was lying on the grass with a book, saw the cat at the other end of the garden, starting to have a pre-attack position, he ran to me, stopped just in front of my face, touched me with a paw "meow!" and run away. And there I was dying of cuteness haha :3

Author heupsche ( ago)
Martina thank you!! I finally made miso soup using your recipe and it was amazing from the first try!!

As someone who is visiting Japan for the first time in July 2017. Would you be able to explain the Japan railway system? At first glance it is very overwhelming. Just the basics of going to and from destinations would be more than enough teeheee xD

Where them bloopers at !!!

Author Apollo 440 ( ago)
Perfect in all aspects but one: it's informative, fully understandable on all levels as a recipe, entertaining like all your videos BUT the alcohol promotion right at the beginning, really?
It's like you haven't seen your fan base at all those YT conventions. I'll spell it out: They're not mature enough to decide whether drinking is wrong at their age. And you are their "middle man" between real apple juice and entertaining drinks with icecubes and a straw.
S&M, do note, that with great power comes great responsibility.

Author This Guy Miko ( ago)
The problem with me is after I made myself food, and it can sometimes last tens of minutes, I eat it like a wild animal in just few seconds. What's the matter with me? It's saddening, because I would really eat soups like this in many pounds.

Author leemission ( ago)
yall gotta listen to that song "Indigo Misfit-Fly" with J.cole

Omg you have to do a video on how japanese apple juice taste different from american apple juice!!!

Author Brianna ( ago)
My fam's cat doesn't lick you but if you kiss at him he will try to press his nose or kitty lips to your nose or around your mouth area. Honestly have no idea how he learned it, maybe he is just mimicking what he saw people doing.
