0 1. brrrrrrrrrrian commented 8 years ago on video The Truth About Japanese Food

I am a native Japanese speaker, and I can tell you that what it says on the subtitles is pretty much mistranslation.
Those Japanese couple are making fun of Australian falks having stereotipical view on Japanese people.
Japanese people do not eat raw fish as much as Western people think.
The correct translation goes as below.

Man:
I just got back from Australia.
Japan is really nice, because we can eat decent food at restaurant.
Every Australian thinks that we eat fish raw.
How can we eat this fish (on his plate) uncooked?

Woman:
How insane!

Man:
Not only that. They go to Japanese restaurants and take off their shoes,
because they think that is the Japanese tradition. Their feet smell so bad!

Woman:
Oh god...
