Long format for me. More detail, and I kinda feel like living in Japan through you guys. Short format still ok, but I like your longer formats.

Nice video but I prefer the longer videos with multiple stops. It would also be great to see what your recommendations are for things such as museums. We had fun at the Osaka museum of Housing and Living last time we were in Japan

Longer videos are better. Really makes everyone feel like they are there. Also when we visit what you recommend on your top 5,7 or 10 spots it has great content keep the longer versions please.

I love this video. New info is always good. But I love your 10 ten videos 🙂 they always cover lots of different things. Which is helpful for someone who is about to visit Japan. I hope I see you around doing a video so I can say hi!

Reading through the comments and the longer videos are the ones your fans prefer. Maybe those few who wanted shorter ones were the squeaky wheels & squeaky ones kind of ruin it for the majority. So keep doing what you were doing with your longer videos. We just love them.

Not as big of a fan of this format. I like when you cover whole neighborhoods or specific topics. For a single place it’s really interesting when it’s “a day on the life of” or a place that is there is so much to do in one place like skytree or shinjuku station.

Paolo, the "secret" Ichioji ramen shops aren't as unknown as you think. ? They're well-known to serious ramen fans in Japan (mostly because they're reachable by rail transit!), and another well-known YouTuber did a much longer video of the shops in this area.


Aug 8, 2019, 7:01 am Reply

Hey Paolo, my wife and I watch your videos all the time. We actually appreciate your long 20+ minute videos because they are so well made and it gives a good amount of information on the subject. However, we enjoy your short videos like this one as well. But please don't stop making your 15+ minute videos like the top 10 or day in the life of… videos. We appreciate the long content.

I liked this video but I do love when you go to different ramen shops because it gets me more excited to visit Japan especially knowing there’s vegetarian options for me. I say do a little of both, explore one ramen spot and then go to an area where there is your favorite spots or new places to try. Either way, I love your videos ?❤️

I like when you show more than one spot. It helps me decide where I want to eat when I only have a short time there. It also makes it easier than searching for more than one video at a time. Love watching you.

Paolo! I just came back and sat in the same place as you did. The ramen left me so satisfied and full, it was good fuel for hiking Mt. Hiei after. Awesome vid, for sure would vote for longer.

Unless the restaurant is super heavenly good and has many dishes worth featuring, I think it would still be good to stick to a few spots within a neighbourhood. After all, you are a travel/lifestyle guide creator not a Food youtuber.

Aug 8, 2019, 11:27 pm Reply

I was so scared of what I'd find in the comments. I'm glad most people agree on the long format (10-20min). Pack as much information as you can in those. Also thoroughly enjoy the "Day in the Life" series. Thanks for the hard work!
Edit: I understand professional Youtubers need to keep people occupied for as many minutes as possible, as that's what brings them income, but I am of the belief that in the long-term, quality always beats quantity.

short format and focus on one spot only. but 10 mins i think the best for short format as you can cover all the detail about the shop as well monetize your videos


Sep 9, 2019, 4:20 pm Reply

Paolo, please stop uploading all these food-related videos!
Don't you see that youtube users and subscribed viewers do not like them, and you get much less views?
Most of your own 528,000 followers do not even open them!
It seems that describing daily lives of various workers in Japan is generating millions of views.
So go with that concept.

I prefer your videos to be longer. I don't know if it makes a difference for youtubers nowadays to try and get 10 minutes of content for the ad revenue or revenue in general, but if it does help you we will sure as hell watch your videos!


Sep 9, 2019, 11:56 am Reply

This short format feels rushed and I dont know it feels like you cant really tell us your honest opinion. Please keep the long 10-15 minutes format! (Also I believe it helps you more to have at least 10 minutes because of youtube revenue)

I used to live on Ichijoji, pretty sure I've tried all of them. My favorites are bishiya and butanchu, which are both tonkotsu ramen places. Gokkei I'm personally not a fan off, the flavor is surprisingly mellow compared to how thick it is.

I personally prefer the longer videos. As a person planning a trip to Japan, it is nicer to see more variety in one area rather than just one location. Still liked the video though and variety doesnt hurt.

I love your videos and your enthusiasm, so firstly THANK YOU!!!!! I do prefer the longer ones too, because we’re planning a trip and the longer ones give us a variety of activities/things to do in an area. Also, there are sooo many videos to watch that for me it’s easier to watch one long video about, say, restaurants, than 10 shorter videos.
