Yuka Kinoshita (木下ゆうか, Kinoshita Yūka, born February 4, 1985) is a Japanese YouTuber and competitive eater.

Career[edit]

Yuka Kinoshita had been posting on her eating-focused YouTube channel since 2014, five years after her debut in Japanese competitive eating competitions.[1]

Kinoshita uploads daily videos in which she eats anywhere between 5,000 to 23,000 calorie meals. Usually Kinoshita edits her videos into 5 to 7 minute vlogs, but occasionally she uploads longer "live eating" videos in the tradition of mukbang. As of February 2019, her videos have garnered more than 1.75 billion views.[2]

Kinoshita's videos are particularly in Japanese and are accessible to English-speaking viewers because they are accompanied by English subtitles. Partly for this reason, she has attracted attention from English-language news sources.[3][4] She has also been featured in the Japanese television programme, Ōgui (大食い).[5]
