  • Good morning guys!

  • it is 7am in the morning and I'm

  • at Asakusa station and today I'm going

  • on a trip with Simon and Martina and

  • we're going to the Aizu area in Fukushima-ken

  • and I'm really excited because if

  • you guys have watched my previous videos

  • I was there in the spring and it's

  • absolutely gorgeous and I'm really happy

  • to be able to see in this Fall this time

  • so let's go inside and buy some tickets

  • and let's go!

  • So for a little over 7000 yen, you get a 4 day unlimited pass

  • for access between Asakusa and the Aizu area

  • So you can get on and off the train as many times as you like

  • and you can visit all the different

  • stops in those areas

  • it's an amazingly great deal if you want

  • to visit several different areas of Japan

  • and you have a limited amount of time

  • Look at the rooms! Little private rooms

  • The private rooms on this train were really nice

  • The could fit 4 people, so it was perfect for our little group

  • And we could shut the door

  • and have our own completely private space

  • where we could just sit back and relax and enjoy the view

  • Another cool thing about this train is that they had free Wi-Fi access

  • Which is great if you're on a long trip and you need to access email and stuff

  • All right, we're going outside to our first stop now!

  • Looks like quite a nice mountainous area

  • Oooo it's nice and chilly!

  • I like this place already

  • You know that it's starting to get cool in Japan when they start selling the hot drinks

  • I love these. Hey, they have oshiruko!

  • The air is so nice, it's such a nice change from Tokyo

  • It feels so fresh and clean

  • This place is gorgeous!

  • Yesss I'm so happy to be back here

  • This is my first time at this particular station

  • It's really nice. It looks like there's not too much in the area

  • pretty much surrounded by mountains, but it's really beautiful

  • Oh I see the foot bath!

  • there's a little box here where you can put your shoes, take your shoes off here

  • it's an onsen so it's naturally warm

  • Oooo yeah

  • I guess we could put our hands in

  • This is some hot water

  • Oh it's really hot!!

  • Wow

  • We're gonna explore the town a little bit now

  • we got some time before we gotta catch the next train

  • it's a cute little town they've got lots of shops here

  • This looks like a coffee and ice cream shop

  • Here we have soba, it looks like Japanese food

  • A wild Martina appears!

  • what are they cooking? "attaka manjyuu"

  • Ohh they're making manjyuu!

  • Mmm they smell really good

  • here we go guys, getting back on the train

  • Aw it's the Fukushima mascot, the little red dog

  • Those are some creepy buldings

  • It's time for lunch guys!

  • I have a matsutake bento

  • Matsutake are a very expensive mushroom

  • I've never eaten one before, but they can go for $100 for one mushroom

  • So they're probably pretty damn good

  • That is so good

  • There's a pretty shot coming up

  • So the train's gonna slow down so we can get nice shots from the train

  • SO beautiful

  • I wanna go swimming in there!

  • Apparently there are only two stations

  • in Japan that have a straw roof like this

  • Not sure where the other one is, but one of them is Yunokami Onsen Station

  • We're getting on the Hirota Taxi Bus next, and we're gonna go for soba!

  • Aww it's so cute

  • So they have some fresh amazake here, I'm pretty excited

  • It's nice, it's so cold here!

  • Well not ~so~ cold but it's a lot colder than Tokyo

  • so this warm amazake is just perfect

  • This area is so cute, look at all these old shops!

  • Selling souvenirs and foods

  • such a cute little town

  • I love the little vegetables

  • Aww this one reminds me of Totoro

  • Great view of the town from here

  • You can see it all! Wow~

  • This little town is so nice!

  • This is our ryokan, I've never been to this one

  • It's pretty chilly up in this area of Japan

  • so I'm going to start the night off with a nice warm bath

  • these are private baths, so you can rent them to just use for yourself

  • nobody's around which is awesome if you're kind of shy

  • to go in the public baths like I am

  • or if you have tattoos

  • This is also another way that you can get to use the baths

  • Many of the publc baths will not allow you in if you have tattoos

  • this is so nice, check it out!

  • You've got your own private room to relax in

  • Tea, shampoo

  • And then over here...

  • your own private bath

  • That's so cool!!

  • Check out the view guys, the river is right down below there

  • Wow, this is really nice

  • the room also had a fan that you can use

  • for when you get out of the bath because you're gonna feel super hot

  • It's nice that they had that to cool down while you're fixing your hair and stuff

  • they also had a CD player which I thought was really neat, they thought of everything

  • one of the funnest parts about Japanese hotels

  • is you can rent yukata to wear while you're staying there

  • And look at the selection they had!

  • They had so many patterns and colors it was so much choosing which one to wear

  • I'll go with this one, please!

  • Hmm I wonder which one is better...

  • I think a bright colour will suit you better

  • Ok I'll go with that one!

  • Aw you look cute!

  • I think it's that way

  • I wonder if everyone is inside already

  • Wow, fancy!

  • Thank you!
