Fischer's Miscellaneous One of Japan's most popular YouTube channels. It's a group channel with 6 members which probably influenced most of the main trends on Japanese YouTube today, for example hard subtitles and sound effects. As you watch more of their channel, you will grow to learn all the members and probably like most of their videos. They do lots of variety.
SAWAYAN Miscellaneous Two Ukranians born and raised in Japan. They are Japanese and Russian natives but all of their videos are done in Japanese. They also do lots of variety content like Fischer's and can sometimes be childish but it's just light hearted fun. They like doing lots of pranks on each other.

おろちんゆー Fishing/Forestry He has plenty of inside jokes and makes lots of videos with a friend called ペインさかいくん and they have hilarious chemistry. He fishes and eats bugs pretty much, while taking lots of inspiration from orochimaru from naruto, mainly in the form of his voice. Can't recommend to people who find bugs disgusting though. If you get invested like me, check out the second channel おろちんゆーの素揚げ.

ANTI BCSC Moto/VLOG Group of 5 dudes who go around on motorcycles. Their content is very funny as they crack jokes the entire time, and it's great seeing the Japanese scenery. They're from Okayama so they speak Kansai-ben, but they tone it down for the videos so it's not really that strong.

ジョシュアinロンドン☆ Growing up in Japan Joshua is a really interesting case because he's white and was raised in Japan, but both of his parents are also white and were raised in Japan. So he's a second generation white japanese guy. Anyways, he interviews other nihonsodachi people. Great to get perspective on what it is like for them.
QuizKnock Quiz Group channel made up of almost entirely 東大 graduates. I think ふくらP might be the only guy in the main cast who didn't go to 東大. Anyways, they are all basically highly studied geniuses who make interesting content.
SAWAYAN GAMES Gaming SAWAYAN CHANNEL's second channel. Mainly ran by Sawa (the older brother) but has Yan at times as well as other guests. Sometimes kinda boring, sometimes absolutely hilarious. He mainly plays Mario Kart 8DX with some other games occasionally.
はじめしゃちょー Miscellaneous One of Japan's biggest youtubers. Personally I only watch him occasionally, but I like him a lot more than ヒカキン who is Japan's other main giant. Some of his videos are pretty funny/interesting.
じぶん流DIYちゃんねる DIY Guy fixing up an akiya to retire in 10 years later in Ibaraki, Japan. The house renovation is really interesting. The only downside is all of the videos are subtitles with music and there is no voiceover, but if you can get over this I'd still recommend it.
