Iseebitarou 伊勢海老太郎 has a growing collection of unique miscellaneous goods which he introduces on his YouTube channel simply called おもしろ雑貨コレクター omoshiro-zakka korekutā, meaning "interesting zakka collector." Zakka, literally "miscellaneous objects," refers to everyday items, practical items or other sundries which are useful, spruce up your decor or bring you joy.

The items featured on his channel are diverse, ranging from cooking goods and stationery to household items such as piggy banks.

First, let's take a look at some cooking tools that will stimulate your curiosity and appetite.

This video of a cabbage slicer has been viewed over 26 million times.

Wow! Look at all the shredded cabbage! If you've ever eaten tonkatsu or any other fried foods in a typical Japanese eatery, then chances are you've seen heaps of shredded cabbage on the side.

There's something very satisfying about seeing a whole head of cabbage turn into fine shreds at such a fast pace. And since it's hand-operated, you can just imagine how satisfying it would be to operate it.

This truly seems to be something that crosses international borders, since the videos feature numerous comments in English and other languages.

If you love Japanese tonkatsu pork cutlets, you'll be glad to know that Iseebitarou also serves us a nice portion of tonkatsu to do with his cabbage.

His "Sheep Dissection Puzzle" video is also popular with 178 million views.

Starting with Jingisukan ジンギスカン (a dish of mutton grilled on convex skillets first popularized in Hokkaido and named after Genghis Khan, based on the belief that his soldiers ate mutton grilled on their helmets), Iseebitarou shows off all kinds of ingredients and dishes associated with Hokkaido.

The video is about 25 minutes long, but the time flies by as it's very amusing and entertaining.

At the beginning of the video, we can see his special "collection room." It seems that Iseebitarou also collects a lot of stationery items.

All kinds of unusual Japanese stationery items show up in this video!

In the comments, people also praised Iseeibitarou for his ingenuity in editing. For example, this can be seen when the food-themed stationery items turn into the real thing.

As of December 2021, more than 50 videos have been uploaded to the channel.
