AAA Joken has over 2,00,000 people on his YouTube page and we know exactly why. He ‘cooks’ in a tiny kitchen. Yes, really cooks. Not the solar-powered thing you’re imagining. The real game, with the fire and all. (Just the first one)
He makes tiny goodies at his Konapun Kitchen studio. Now, us un-Japanese folks need to understand the Konapun. Konapun is a popular toy in Japan where you go through all the cooking steps to make small replica food items. Most of them aren’t edible. With each toy set you can make different kinds of food like cakes, chicken nuggets, sushi etc. The kit comes with the ingredients and tools like tiny mixing bowls, a freezer, a stove, an oven and spoons. This was already sold in the market since 2006 till 2009. They’re still on eBay, if anyone’s interested.
So here’s 10 videos that will have you glued to them like your life depends on it.
