2. Hajime-shacho はじめしゃちょー (Shacho means a boss in Japanese. Subscribers 5.9M as of Feb2018)
He started to upload videos later than Hikakin, but now he has the largest subscribers in Japan. He started uploading funny experimental videos in 2012 while he was still studying at university. To be honest, it's impossible to say how many Youtubers in Japan uploaded mentos-coke videos, he's one of them and uploaded many different versions of anything related to mentos and coke. His style of videos are various, but main theme is still funny and stupid experiments.
3. Yuka Kinoshita 木下ゆうか (subscribers 3.8M as of Feb2018)
Her type of video is simple and easy to understand. Eat. Just eat. So, what's the point of having more than 3 million subscribers here? The way she eats makes us feel like hungry? Well, it depends... personally not! She has a bottomless stomach. She eats, eats and eats in every video. That's it. She always eats up unbelievable amount of foods and calories. And her everyday eating diary got 3.8M subscribers and made her famous one of most famous Youtubers in Japan.
