Dōgen: Really Funny in Japanese

Recently, (I’m probably late to the game as always) I came across a YouTuber going by the name Dōgen.

His recent fame has even seen him being featured in the Japan Times. I see there are also some longer and deeper videos on his channel which I will look at when I have more time but for now I thought I would share this with you. Enough talking about his videos. Here are some of my favorites:
