We’re going behind the counter at a local family-owned Japanese chicken speciality shop in Tokyo Japan. This is tour from inside of their kitchen from their morning open time of 5:00AM. This Tokyo hidden gem chicken shop receives farm fresh chicken deliveries daily, refrigerating them overnight to bring out the natural umami from their bones, and finally dressing them first thing the next morning, which produces an unmatched level of freshness and flavor when compared to machine processed chickens sold at the supermarket. This hidden Japanese chicken in Gotanda, is known for its umami-rich, juicy and tender meat selectively sourcing domestic free-range chickens called daisen-dori and shingen-dori from Totori and Yamanashi prefectures, which has remained unchanged since the shop was first opened. It’s one of the reasons why many of it’s customers often say, they won’t shop anywhere else. It’s also perfect to get some Tokyo Street Food or Japanese Street Food if you are in the neighborhood. Shinanoya, opened in 1949 going back 3 generations and located just a 3 minute walk from Gotanda station. They uniquely dress their chickens from the start of each morning to deliver the freshest chicken meat and dishes to their customers as possible. One of my favorites is the Karaage Fried Chicken but they server all sorts of Japanese sozai dishes such as yakitori, korroke and chicken menchi.

  1. Do Japanese people sleep less often than Americans? Video after video of these and I keep seeing a pattern of like 5-6 hours of sleep (slept at midnight and has to be at work around 5am????). I definitely sleep more and will sacrifice free time to get an hour or two of more sleep for 7-8.

  2. I suddenly want to get to know the Owner’s brother in law who works out at the gym, a bit more 😉

  3. How can they afford to pay their staff if the prices are so low?! At least increase by 100-150y! PLEASE, for the love of god!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. You look so tired and eyes swollen. I appreciate your effort to film all these videos which I always enjoyed. Keep it up and great stuff! Rest well ❤

  5. He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
    John 3:36
    For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
    Romans‬ ‭6‬:‭23
    Jesus Christ is the only way, seek Him while He may be found, before it’s too late, tomorrow is never promised.

  6. Congratulations Paolo! I follow your channel for some time and I am very happy to see your work. I always wanted to live in Japan and through your videos I can learn a lot about the culture and daily life of this fantastic nation. I’m Brazilian and I work with production and post-production. If I can help you with anything, feel free to contact me. Big hug and success!!!

  7. I wish there was a chicken shop like this where I live, that team work and dedication is amazing, plus the food looks delicious!

  9. Oof. Close. But I don’t see a chicken slaughter line. *ALMOST* freshest chicky.

    I thought these people slaughtered their own chickens from the title of this video and was definitely let down 😔 . ALTHOUGH that place looks sooooooooo good and I want to try that chicken so badly! 🍻 cheers, great video, thanks!

  10. Hi Paolo. I love these videos! You make everything so interesting and fun. Their work ethic is no joke! I can see why they have been around for so long. Thanks Paolo. Keep them coming! Love from Tennessee 😊

  11. 私は大阪に住んでいます。 そしてローソンでアルバイト。 ほとんど焼き鳥を食べます、それがとても好きです

  12. Imagine have to do those tedious yet hard work every day. With anywork you must have a good attitude and passion or else you will injure yourself or won’t last😂. Being zenfull in very moment of what you do.

  13. Its like lobsters that are alive when you toss them in boiling water. This is no different, they pluck all the feathers then throw them on the bbq still alive. Only way to get the freshest chickens…..

  14. Hello Paolo I’m glad that I discovered your channel. Thank U for touring us all in Japan virtually. This is so amazing for someone like me who wants to live in Japan. Love from the Philippines! ❤❤❤

  15. “ behind the counter “ videos are the best. I like all of your videos a lot. At the same time I think you struck gold with these behind the counter videos. Great job Sir.

  16. I love your videos, Paolo, but these foodie ones just kill me! I could just dive into that karaage!!!

  17. 5:12 Thats good to hear they’re using chicken fat to fry with and not some bad vegetable oil like canola.

  18. I love these behind the scenes. And holy cow, she’s been working there 61 years?! That’s some impressive work ethic.

  19. You can tell Paolo was there super early, cus he sounds like he just woke up 😂😂😂

  20. Hi Paolo, could you do another eating video, in which you try all these chicken products and explain what exactly is sold? That would be great.

  21. every F’ing millennial sells crap to sponcer their shows.. we dont want to buy your crap….useless

  22. Thank you so much for your videos! I had a misfortune, I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. I also created a channel and am trying to move in that direction, but so far not very successful((ww
