Welcome everyone to the first episode of Eat Your Sushi, a new segment we want to share with you while we’re in Japan. It’s going to be our longest segment ever clocking in at like, 30 minutes! We’re hoping you can kick back, clean your room, do some cooking, study, and just unwind while we keep you company with a little slice of our life in Japan. GET IT! SLICE…OF LIFE…SUSHI…A SLICE OF FISH…A…SLICE…EAT YOUR SUSHI!!?? Anyone!??? *Martina coughs and mutters to herself*
So what is Eatyoursushi going to be all about?
For starters, we’ve been deeply considering vlogging more now that we’re in Japan, but we weren’t convinced that it’s something we’d be able to do everyday. The vlogs that we watch on YouTube are of people that have kinda interesting things to do all the time. We…are not those kinds of people. I mean, did you see us try and do “extreme” sports in Vietnam? So much failure. Most days we just sit in front of the computer and work, like today! I went to the Apple Store to bring in one of our computers that stopped working, while Martina edited all day. Then I came to meet her until the computers died (we couldn’t find a socket). Then we went home and took a nap. Then we ate at CocoCurry (again!) and then we started editing some more while I write this blog post. See how boring that would be as a video? SO BORING! So, making videos out of that would be lame.
At the same time, we do have some awesome things happen that we want to share but can’t find the right video for. How do we share our bunny experience which you’ll find out about next episode? How to we share our older Japanese man’s bro-fist experience? We’d like to share all these adventures and experiences!
Also, we reeeeeeeeeally miss doing LiveChats. Sitting down, telling stories, answering questions, opening up your letters and the fun stuff you send us: that was a fun part of our weeks. And now that we’re not doing them, we really miss that time. So we thought this show could be all of those into one. We can tell stories like we did in our LiveChats, share some short videos we make along the way, and answer some questions here and there. Not to mention, we’re bringing back the challenges from the old school W.A.N.K days! Nothing like some good old fashion silly competition to give you a good laugh!
Now I’m sure you noticed, we’re not filming this in our home. We’re filming this in the Breaker Lab located in Harajuku (which is an awesome area in Tokyo BTW). We mentioned this briefly in our announcement to move that we’ll be working with a Japanese company named Breaker Inc and they were nice enough to let us use their studio. They’re letting us totally decorate the space as we please to make it our own wonderful tacky Eatyoursushi corner! OH HO HO~ I CAN FEEL THE POWER RUNNING THROUGH MY VEINS AS I RUN TO THE NEAREST STORE WITH SAILOR MOON ITEMS IN IT! Ahem…so we’re still working on putting it together. You can see that we don’t have any decorations up yet, but we’re also hoping you’ll help us decorate with the wonderful fanart you send us. Also, all the fan art you sent us in Korea is also safely stored away but just not in Japan yet. It’ll be cool to see the wall grow and change as time passes. :)
Which brings us to another question: we’ve read your questions about where you can mail us stuff, which we’re always super excited about! If you’d like to send us your art or your letters or anything that’s not illegal (no bazookas plz), you can send them to:

We plan on doing these shows every week on Monday. I hope you’ll enjoy this segment. WE’RE SO SCARED. We really hope you don’t find this boring! But leave us your comments and suggestions and we’ll be sure to read them. Send us either a Tweet, or a comment on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram or even here. We look at it all! We love talking with you guise and try to do so whenever we have free time.
Get ready to enjoy a slice of our life while we explore Japan with Eatyoursushi!
