聊聊日本的那些怪事

Let's Talk About Weird Japan

Hello world. What do you find weird about Japan?
大家好 日本有哪些事让你感到怪异呢?
This is actually a question I got asked while being interviewed.
这个问题 其实我被采访时也问到过
Yes, some people actually think I have something worthwhile to say.
想必有人会认为我有一些值得说的
My answer? Silence.
我的答案?我无话可说
Not for a few seconds, not for a few minutes, not even for a few days.
不是说几秒 几分钟 甚至几天里想不出说啥
Nothing was going on in here.
而是脑子里始终空白 想不出什么
You see, I didn’t start making videos to showcase, the weird, the wacky Japan.
我开拍这些视频不是为了展示怪异搞笑的日本
No, I wanted to make videos to talk about what it was really like for the regular,
而是想通过视频展示日常的日本
whatever that means. Japanese family, Japanese person.
不管你怎么定义日常 日本的家庭 日本的民众
However, that question just didn’t stop bouncing around in my skull.
然而 这个问题就是不停地在我脑中盘旋
What is weird about Japan?
日本到底有哪些怪事?

Everyone knows that maid cafes are popular in Japan,
大家都知道女仆咖啡店在日本很流行
the cute little hearts that are drawn in the air,

And then there’s those weird Japanese always wearing masks.
比如说 那些奇怪的日本人总戴着口罩
Um, how come you’re wearing a mask?
你为什么要戴口罩呢?
Are you going to do some surgery?
是要去做手术吗?
No, I’m kind of sick.
不是的 我有些不舒服
你们平时戴口罩吗?
戴的
我感冒时才戴
因为高中时我不化妆
我用口罩遮住脸这里
我想遮住这里
这样的话 不化妆也没事
对对 很多人都这么做
Wearing masks is an everyday occurrence.
戴口罩是家常便饭
They’re worn to protect yourself from others’ germs,
戴口罩能防止别人将病菌传染给自己

And they’re worn to hide yourself
也可能是不想露脸
because sometimes you don’t feel like putting on makeup.

Uh-huh, cuz maybe today you didn’t feel like putting on makeup
啊哈 也许你今天不想化妆
And because maybe today you just thought, Agh!

– 不知道 – 不知道
真有这事吗(租男女朋友)?
是真的
咦?租女友?
我想租一个 听起来很有趣
我听说租女友1小时大约7000日元(62美元)
你们可以在这附近(涩谷)约会

I think it’s well-known in the Japanese pop culture.

Yeah, so, emm…
确实是这样 怎么说呢……
I think the image is not so good for me,
那些女仆主题不太适合我
but it’s very interesting culture for foreign people.
但对于外国人来说是个挺有趣的文化
女仆咖啡馆?
对男性来说
是个挺不错的能被温柔以待的地方吧
The Japanese people, the latest street fashion is quite niche,
对日本人来说 最新的街头潮流只是小众市场
maid cafes are rarely frequented.
女仆咖啡馆也很少光顾
And renting a girlfriend? That’s not even on the radar.
租个女友?压根不会去想
A lot of those “weird Japanese” things,
有很多日本的“怪事”
Japanese people don’t even do or don’t even know about it.

On the other hand, Masks.

That’s something that’s very normal to Japanese people.

What does the word “weird” even mean?
“怪异”这个词究竟是什么意思呢?
So of course you Google “weird”
显然你会去谷歌查“weird”(怪异)这个词
and you get words like strange, odd, fantastic, magical.
查到“奇怪” “古怪” “奇异” “神奇” 这些解释
Hmm. Okay.
好吧
But what do those words mean?
但这些词又是什么意思?
Strange: relating to, or characteristic of another country: foriegn
“奇怪” 和他国相关的 他国具有的特征 国外的
Seeing something in a different country that is not your own is foreign,

which is strange, which is weird.

Let’s try another one. Fantastic.
让我们看另一个词 “奇异”

以夸张的幻想或极端的个性为标志
Yes, amazing Yatu’s fit the mold.
是的 雅图就适合“神奇”这个词
If you’ve lived in Japan though,
然而 如果你在日本住过
you’d know that the majority of the population
你就知道 大部分日本人民
isn’t considered as extreme or extravagant.
并不极端或夸张
Okay, last one: Odd.
最后一个词 “古怪”
Differing markedly from the usual, ordinary, or accepted.

Japan has a unique culture in many ways.
日本在很多方面都有着独特的文化
Everyday ordinary things over here
这里每天发生的许多司空见惯的事
may not be accepted in other countries.

So what are the everyday things in Japan that I find weird?
那有什么是在日本司空见惯 而我觉得怪异的呢?
I think food is a very easy area with which to find weird things.
我觉得很容易从食物中发现怪东西
Take Yuta for example.
我们来看悠太吃的东西
I think many people would say that this squid he ate,
我想很多人 尤其是非沿海城市的人
especially people in non coastal cities is weird.
会觉得他吃的鱿鱼很奇怪
By the way, this is a fusion dish
顺便说一下 这是融合料理
So while eating squid is common
尽管吃鱿鱼很普遍
presented in this style is somewhat weird.
但像这样摆上来总有点奇怪
This is what it looked like when some of my family were preparing squid at home.
我们家准备鱿鱼差不多是这样的
Fish presented like this is totally normal.
在日本 鱼这样摆盘再正常不过
Now, this is a higher-end meal, think fancy steak dinner.
这是一道高级料理 类似高级牛排
Japanese people don’t eat it like this every day.
日本人不会天天吃这种食物
But it’s totally not out of the norm to have a fish’s head prominently displayed like this.
但在日本 鱼头这么突出地摆盘一点不奇怪
The prairie boy in me is screaming:
我体内的北美草原男孩在呐喊:
Why are you leaving the head on the plate?
为什么要把鱼头放在盘子上?
You can even buy the head on its own at the local supermarket.
你甚至能在当地超市单买到这样的鱼头
And of course you can get a whole fish on a stick.
当然也能买到用竹签串起来的一整条鱼
When I first saw this I didn’t even know where to start.
我第一次见到的时候 都不知道该从何下嘴
Is it the head, the tail? Do you bite in the middle?
从鱼头还是鱼尾?从中间开始吃吗?
Aha, It looks like it’s in the middle.
啊哈 似乎就是从中间开始
The ambiguity of what to do goes out the window
如果是小鱼 那就不必纠结啦
if you downsize a bit and simply go for a whole bunch of these little guys.
直接抓起一把送进嘴就行了
In conclusion, eating seafood prepared in every which way
总之 食用以各种方式料理的海鲜
is completely everyday in Japan.
在日本是极为常见的
And don’t get me started with natto.
别让我提纳豆
If you don’t know what it is,

take these fine looking edamame,
去买一些新鲜毛豆
peel the shells and let it rot.

Now you have natto.
纳豆就做好了
This is soy beans.

Okay, not quite.
好吧 也不完全是
I exaggerate, but natto is fermented soybeans
我虽然夸张了 但纳豆就是发酵了的大豆
and it’s a fine line between rotten and fermented.
处于腐烂和发酵间微妙的分界线
I don’t know, if like you like it,
我不知道你爱不爱吃纳豆
but Japanese people like it.
但日本人爱吃
What does it smell like?
它闻起来什么味?
I don’t know.
我说不好
And what in the world is this?
这又是什么鬼?
It’s a bitter deformed zucchini. That’s what it is.
这是苦味怪异版的西葫芦 没错了
It can lower blood sugar levels,
它能降低血糖水平
but that requires being able to stomach at first.
但你得先把它吃进肚里
They sure got the bitter part of the name correct.
它们确如其名 好苦
There’s even a couple areas that have the Goya as a mascot
有些地区甚至还把苦瓜作为吉祥物
like Goya-sensei in Fukuchiyama city in Kyoto.
比如 京都府福知山市的“苦瓜老师”
Who yes, has his own Twitter.
哦 对了 它还有自己的推特
And Goya kun, representing Okinawa
还有冲绳的代言人“苦瓜君”

These are mascots and most every area in Japan has one.
这些是吉祥物 日本几乎所有地区都有吉祥物
It’s completely normal.
极其正常
And don’t get me started on unofficial mascots like Funassyi.
更别说像“船小梨”这样的民间吉祥物了
船桥市的吉祥物船小梨
船小梨是什么?
You’ll actually find cute characters everywhere you go in Japan.
在日本 萌物无处不在
They’ll be mascots of local areas that you can buy.
你能买到可爱的地方吉祥物
They’ll be on construction barricades,
你能看到可爱的施工路障
because why not make it nice and friendly.
因为把路障设得萌一点何乐不为呢
They’ll be on poles to stop cars from using sidewalks.

They’ll be on park signs to warn plants of evil fires.
有可爱的公园标示 警示植物地带禁止烟火
Or birds of cars gone wild.

They’ll warn mice about what will happen to them if we find them.
有可爱的广告画 警告老鼠被抓住会是什么下场
They’ll sell homes by being a cute, pro-LGBT blob.

They’ll sell KitKat. They’ll sell themselves.
这些萌物会卖KitKat 它们会推销自己

Okay, some of the characters are not so cute.
好吧 有些形象也不是那么可爱
Buy my chicken.
来我这买鸡肉
Turning to more appetizing food.
再看些更美味的食物
Let’s talk about fruits.
来说说水果吧
Just regular fruits. Okay, pricey fruits.
就普通的水果 好吧 昂贵的水果
The meme is true some Japanese fruits be super expensive.
吐槽日本水果贵的段子是真的 有些真的超贵
These are what I categorize as gift fruits.
这些我归类于礼品水果
Yes, Japanese love to gift fruits to one another.
对 日本人喜欢用水果互送礼
But why give them as presents?
但为什么用水果送礼呢?
The wisdom of the gift of fruit,
送人水果非常明智
send freshness, send flavor, send fragrance.
送去新鲜 送去美味 送去芬芳
Nothing communicate your thankfulness better than fruit.
要表达谢意 没有比水果更好的了
Those who say thank you with fruit are the wisest giver
以水果作为谢礼的人是最明智的
你有收到或送出水果 作为礼物的吗?
有的
在我去冲绳时
买了芒果 作为伴手礼带回给爷爷奶奶
虽然芒果作为冲绳名产
价格有点高
夏季的时候 我们还会收到西瓜之类的礼物
我认为送水果很常见
我爷爷会送我们各种水果
不过朋友之间不太送水果
Fruit often falls into the dessert category.
水果经常作为饭后甜品
You don’t have to look any further than the Japanese school lunch, kyushoku,
你只要看看九州的学校提供的日式午餐
to see this: cherries, melons, mandarins.
看看这个 有樱桃 西瓜 柑橘
These are all the dessert portion of the meal.
这些都属于餐品甜食的一部分
And how the Japanese eat fruits
而日本人吃水果的方式
might be a little bit different than what you’re used to.
可能与你习惯的吃法有一点点不同
Gonna go eat some grapes!
请你吃些葡萄
I don’t think you should like the…
我觉得你不会喜欢这种吃法……
Umm… the cleaner way, are you?
你会用更卫生的方法 对吗?
While extremely pricey fruits is not the norm in Japan,
日本人日常并不会吃特别昂贵的水果
giving them as gifts is very much so.
但把它们作为礼物却挺普遍
The average Japanese supermarket,
日本的普通超市
they don’t have the variety that you’ll find in Canada or the United States.
不像加拿大或美国的超市 水果种类那么丰富
They are more focused on what’s in season
他们更关注当季的水果
and the idea of what makes a quality fruit is more robust.
并且评判水果是否优质 会考虑更多方面
So think texture, shape, sweetness
比如说 质地 形状 甜度
and you’ll pay for it.
然后你就掏钱了
Alright, alright. Enough with the normal word stuff.
好吧 日常的坏(怪)事我们就说到这里
Let’s get to the real strange. Like kancho.
我们来说些真正奇怪的事 比如 千年杀
Shin, can you please explain to people what a kancho is?
新 你能给大家解释下什么是千年杀吗?
– Kancho? – Yeah, please give the kitty a kancho.
– 千年杀? – 是 请给这只玩偶猫一个千年杀
Wait. Take this hand. Do like this, and boom.
等下 伸出手 然后像这样做 砰
pew pew pew boom psssch
噗噗噗噗噗
你们玩过千年杀嘛
– 玩过呀 当然 – 做过呀
– 只有男生会做这个吧 – 是的 一般都是男孩子做这个
而且是小学男生吧
到了初高中一般就不玩了
怎么说 就是闹着玩呗
啊……
开玩笑啊
好玩儿
我做这个动作以示友好 但有些人不这么认为
那你什么时候做这动作?
什么时候?
问我吗?
嗯 高中时候 社团成员一起玩
就……
呃 在什么情况下啊?
恶作剧
想要捉弄人 然后躲在后面
– 差不多就是这种吧 – 对对对
就是想捉弄一下
高中时偶尔会做
那是在什么情况下?
什么情况下?
和朋友们胡闹 趁人不注意就做了
我上的是个很差的学校
我没做过 没有
People’s boom, [ Japanese ] pue pue pue
冲着人的屁股 砰 砰 砰
Perhaps the most mainstream thing in Japan
我至今尚不能理解的 在日本最主流的事物
that I still can’t comprehend is Japanese TV.
恐怕就是日本电视节目吧
I’ll try not to get too ranty,
我尽量保持冷静
but can someone explain to me why there are
但是谁能给我解释一下
so many Japanese programs that need to have these little floating heads
为什么这么多日本节目需要头像小浮窗
reacting to everything?
来显示人们对各种事物的反应?
斐济有哪些美味料理?
说实话斐济料理都是很简单的
对当地人而言这是常识
来看看这家店的酱油拉面是怎么做的吧
事实上 很多年之前
欧洲人不知道怎么制造白色的碗碟
耶!正确答案是A!
搞笑艺人组夺得5分!
Mr Greg, you do know there is a big react channel on YouTube
Greg 你一定知道油管上有个广受欢迎的“反应频道”
Welcome to Challenge Chalice today with me
欢迎来到今天的《挑战圣杯》
we have a Marly from Teens React
今天的嘉宾有来自“Teens React”的Marly
and we have Labib from Adults and College Kids React.
还有来自“Adults and College Kids React”的labib
What’s up, guys.
最近咋样伙计们
Yeah yeah, I know.
是啦 我知道
But there’s a difference between choosing to watch a react channel
但是主动看反应频道是一回事
and having the react format forced upon you, for a good chunk of Japanese TV.
而很多日本电视强迫观众看别人的反应是另一回事
So I did a bit of research
所以我做了下调查
and apparently Japanese people need to know how to react
显然日本观众为了从节目中获得乐趣
in order to enjoy the TV.
需要看到别人作出的反应
So these little heads you’ll see is called a wipe or waipu.
你看到的这些小头像叫做wipe或者waipu
Tofugu has a good video on this so I won’t go too much into detail.
Tofugu拍过一个相关视频 我就不多说了
But essentially it’s been around since the 80’s
大体上它是80年代左右出现的节目
and it started as a way for a celebrity panel to react to other celebrities doing things.
其形式是一组嘉宾对另一组嘉宾的行为作出反应
So yeah, essentially the React Channel format,
其实就是“反应频道”的模式
but done decades ago in Japan.
不过是几十年前出现于日本的
我参拍的电影已经上映了
如果您还在犹豫 我拜托您一定要去看
这真的是一部很有趣的电影
Beyond variety shows with the many tarento,
邀请很多艺能人参与的综艺节目在日本广受欢迎
which is derived from the English word talented,
艺能人这词来源于英语“talented”
so panels of talented celebrities,
也就是指有才艺的名人嘉宾们
anime is certainly another popular type of Japanese TV program.
此外 动漫无疑是日本电视中另一类广受欢迎的节目
Anime in Japan is weird.
日本的动漫很奇怪
But this is not going to go in the direction you think it is.
但不是你想的那种奇怪
I’m not talking about hentai anime.
我要讲的并不是“变态动画”
No. I’m talking about mainstream primetime children’s Hentai anime.
不 我要谈的是黄金档主流儿童变态动漫
I introduce to you tea pot genitalia man.
我给你介绍 茶壶丁丁侠
召唤!
发光!
我是……噂咚丸!
你召唤我是个正确的选择!
诶?
砰!
这是能腐蚀你的特殊热水
特殊移动!喷水!
I don’t think I need to explain how this is weird.
不用我解释这有多奇葩了吧
So let me roll to the next clip.
我给你看另外一个动画
小新 你没有什么梦想或愿望吗?
欸……
那我的愿望是永远当个孩子
那是什么?
难道……那是个屁股?
– 是个屁股 – 嗯……是屁股
是个屁股 是吧?
你们怎么了 屁股屁股的说个不停
又不是头一次看到我的屁股
啊 对不起 你没事吧?
这有神的眼睛
这嘟嘟的嘴
你一定就是他啊
终于见到你太高兴了
我知道会找到你的
和我一起走吧 新之助
我才不是新之助呢!
哈?
那才是新之助
什么?
And in case you forgot, this is mainstream children’s anime.
提醒你一下 别忘了 这是主流儿童动画
I think this is weird to North Americans
这对于北美人来说太奇葩了
because our kids cartoons
因为我们的儿童卡通
don’t seem to joke around in the same manner.
似乎不会开这样的玩笑
But when it comes to showing or joking about the human body,
当涉及暴露或调侃身体时
I find what’s acceptable really depends on the culture.
我发现人们的接受程度真的取决于当地文化
For example, this is acceptable fare in American music videos.
比如说 以下这种程度在美国音乐视频是可接受的
#Oooooh Oh Oooooh#
#噢噢噢噢噢噢#
#California girls, we’re unforgettable#
#加州女孩们 令人难忘#
#Daisy Dukes, Bikinis on top#
#牛仔热裤 比基尼#
#Sun-kissed skin, so hot, will melt your popsicle#

#Oooooh Oh Oooooh#
#噢噢噢噢噢噢#
#I don’t wanna waste no time, yeah#
#我不想浪费时间 耶#
#You ain’t got a one-track mind, yeah#
#你也不是死脑筋 耶#
#Have it any way you like, yeah#
#随你喜欢怎样 耶#
#And i can tell that you know i know how i want it#
#我可以看出来 你知道我是多么渴望它#
On the other hand, this is about the raciest
另一方面 这差不多是我见过的
mainstream Japanese music video I’ve seen.
最刺激大胆的主流日本音乐视频了
#I want you, I want you#
#我想要你 我想要你#
#I need you, I need you#
#我需要你 我需要你#
#I love you, I love you#
#我爱你 我爱你#
#从我心底里#
#那么多爱奔涌而出#
And if you check out Japanese teen dramas,
如果你去看日本的青春剧
this is about as provocative as it gets, folks.
伙计 这大概是里面最刺激的一幕了
It’s like as if two statues were kissing each other.
看起来就像两个雕像在接吻
Actually wait, they have a scene where they took away the plastic.
等等 剧中有一幕 那个塑料屏被挪走了
You must be thinking, this looks a bit old.
你一定觉得情节有些老套
Yeah, it’s 14 years ago.
你懂的 14年前的电视剧嘛
Nowadays it’s a bit more racy, no?
那现在尺度总稍微大点了吧?
Here’s the most passionate scene, you’ll see in this teen drama.
看 这是该剧中最激情的场景了
Yep, in all the 22 episodes
是的 在整整二十二集中
this was the grand finale scenes a hug, and a…
这是大结局的场景 一个拥抱 还有……
In contrast, this is Gossip Girl.
对比看看《绯闻女孩》
Excuse me, captain,
上校 打扰一下
Nate, can I borrow you?
Nate 能占用你点时间吗?
Uh sure. Will you excuse me for a second.
好的 请允许我离开一下
Nathaniel, any interest in some fresh air?
Nathaniel 要出去透透气吗?
– When I get back? – If he gets back.
– 等我回来吧 – 如果他回得来的话
– What’s going on? – I want to do this.
– 怎么啦? – 我想干这事
I think I’ll stop it right there.
后面就不用我说了吧
What about some primetime sitcoms
那黄金档的情景喜剧又是怎么样的呢
like The Big Bang Theory?
例如《生活大爆炸》?
So what do you guys do for fun around here?
你们在这都玩些什么呢?
Well today we tried pleasing ourselves for money.
今天 我们尝试了取悦自己……为了钱
– Umm, can I ask you a favor? – A favor?
– 那个 我能请你帮个忙吗? – 什么忙?
It’s just not the kind of thing you ask a guy you just met.
是那种通常不会请刚认识的人帮的忙
Wow.
哇哦
And hey, let’s go back and visit some Friends.
我们来重温《老友记》
Stood up too fast. Got a little head rush.
站起来太快了 有点头晕
Do you want to come in for some lemonade?
你想进来喝点柠檬水吗?
Like you wouldn’t believe.
再好没有了
This place is really my grandmother’s.

So talking about you know what,
所以 说到那啥啥
okay, I’ll say it, coitus,
好吧 我就直说了 OOXX
that’s a-okay on American television.
是可以在美剧中出现的
But if in real life you had some people bathe naked together?
但是 在现实中有见过人们一起光着洗澡吗
Wow, stop the presses.
先别急着评论
In Japan though, bathing together mixed gender
在日本 学龄前的儿童
is done roughly until children enter elementary school.
通常是男女混浴的
After that it’s separated
学龄后才会分开洗
and the guys will bathe naked with guys,
男人和男人一起裸着洗
but female staff are allowed in.
但浴池的女员工允许入内
While girls bathe naked with girls.
女孩和女孩一起裸着洗
No male staff allowed.
但浴池的男员工禁止入内
This is normal for Japanese,
这对日本人来说很正常
probably weird for most North Americans.
但对大多数北美人来说 很可能显得怪异
While being naked is a-okay at an onsen,
尽管在温泉里赤裸是可以的
revealing skin in public is not as common
但在其他公共场所露出皮肤可不是什么常事
Some of it has to do with females not wanting to get tanned.
部分原因是有女性不想让自己晒黑
So, you’ll see arm coverings like this
所以 你会看见像这样的袖套
or swim jackets like this.
或者像这样的游泳夹克
Since we’re back on the subject of clothing,
既然我们又聊到了服装
you should know that most Japanese girls don’t wear kawaii outfits.
你该知道 大多数日本女孩 并不会穿可爱的服装
Just look at the totally unscientific sample of young people we interviewed.
只需看看我们完全随意采访的年轻人
And sorry, I should elaborate.
抱歉 我应该详细解释一下
I think the outfits are kawaii or cute
我认为她们打扮的很可爱
but what I was referring to was that Harajuku kawaii

指的是那种夸张的女仆装束
That’s a niche thing.
这种打扮的女孩不多见
It’s nice to see the Japanese kick back and relax at the festivals
看日本人在祭典节日上放松身心是件趣事
and sometimes they get a little too relaxed and start losing a bit of their clothing.
有时他们会放松得稍稍过了头 开始脱衣服
This is a scene from the Saidai ji Eyo Hadaka Matsuri,
这个场面来自“西大寺会阳”
or as westerners know it, the Naked Festival.
就是西方人所知的“裸祭”
It’s often at the top of the list of weird Japanese things.
它常被列于日本怪事的榜首
But there’s only one big festival like this
不过这么奇特的大型祭典只此一个
and granted, there are a few small ones as well,
虽然也有一些小规模的奇葩祭典
but they’re merely a drop in the bucket in the ocean that is Japanese festivals.
但和一些日本大型祭典相比 就是小巫见大巫
What you actually might see worn at festivals or special occasions are kimonos,
在节日或特殊场合 其实你能看到的穿着或许是和服
or more likely yukatas, also known as the summer version of the kimono.
更可能看到人们穿浴衣 也就是夏季和服
It’s not everyday wear but it is very normal to see them worn in Japan.
它并非日常穿着 但在日本 常见到人们穿
After the festivals though the Japanese have to get back to work
