  • morning.

  • Coffee check.

  • Good weather.

  • Oh, check sense of self worth.

  • Yeah.

  • Check.

  • Wow.

  • E don't know why I'm so grand people the time.

  • Well, let's have a look through some new YouTube comments shall way.

  • Half of the things you're saying is wrong.

  • You sound stupid, arrogant and ignorant.

  • Learn something about the country, then make those videos.

  • People like you did not make sense.

  • People like me don't make sense.

  • Shit.

  • I didn't know that.

  • Still take a lot more than that to ruin my day.

  • You looked like Johnny Depp.

  • Yeah, that's not bad.

  • Wait a minute.

  • You look like Johnny Depp fused with Frankie Muniz.

  • Welcome, Thio.

  • Ask Abroad where for the next few weeks I'll be answering questions sent in by viewers about anything.

  • It'll be just like a TV show, only not as good.

  • Incredibly, Last week alone, viewers centered over 1000 questions.

  • And so to try and bring a sense of order to the crazy amount of questions, it makes sense to theme each of these Q and A videos around a particular topic.

  • The topic of this video will be about travel on.

  • There'll be 15 questions, most of which will be about travel, with some random ones thrown in.

  • A swell as comment of the week on most annoying question of the week before we dive in at the end of a previous video, I invited Sony to make contact if they were interested in hiring any new marketing directors or executives or anything like that.

  • And surprisingly, there has actually bean one promising lead.

  • And it was a common on a video.

  • It says Yes, I'm Nigerian Prince of Sony.

  • Please give me your credit card information so we can hire you now.

  • I didn't know Sony was ruled by a Nigerian prince.

  • Come to think of it, I didn't even know Nigeria had the royal family.

  • But I have sent my credit card information over.

  • So now the ball is in your court.

  • Sony.

  • Okay, so John says we're off to Japan from the U.

  • K.

  • In three weeks.

  • What's one of the first must do things when we hit Tokyo, there are three things you should do.

  • Number one get a sense of how insanely big Tokyo is by going up Tokyo tower.

  • It makes even London look genuinely small on the view from Tokyo Tower is probably the best in all of Tokyo, in my opinion, as it's right immersed in the center of Tokyo, and you have a great 3 60 view number to go and relax.

  • In some nonsense, um, hot springs in an actual on send theme park in or diver is called on sent.

  • And to get there, you need to take the monorail over the Rainbow Bridge, which admittedly sounds like something out Mario Kart.

  • But the weather on send is a really great place to relax on experience.

  • Japanese bathing culture.

  • I always take friends there, and they love it.

  • It's a really great way to overcome jetlag as well.

  • A number three and assuming it's the evening, go to Shinjuku, which is the entertainment district in Tokyo, visit a neighborhood called Golden Going.

  • It's a small neighborhood crammed with hundreds of bars tucked away down some narrow streets on each bars.

  • Really small.

  • It can only fit like a dozen people, and it has this really cool, futuristic, dystopian feel to it feels like Blade Runner.

  • Although the last time I was there, I went into this rock bar in the corner.

  • There was this really disturbed interpretation of Yoda, which I am still having nightmares about, but it's a really great place to meet people, eat and drink a reasonable price on feel like you're in Blade Runner.

  • Hopefully, there's something there that should appeal.

  • Have a great trip to Japan.

  • What's been your favorite thing to do alone in Japan?

  • Drive around the countryside listening to eighties music.

  • But if you could do it, get a car and just drive off, get lost somewhere in the countryside, it's just the most amazing thing in the scenery is incredible.

  • If you could have some eighties music as well when you're on the right track, what cities or places do you recommend to visit in Japan in a 1 to 2 weeks schedule?

  • If it's your first time in Japan, and I guess it's a given that there are set things you should see and do for that the three places I recommend seeing our Tokyo, Kyoto and Hiroshima on those all three places you can see easily in one week.

  • If you have two weeks, I'd actually recommend spending longer in each city rather than going off traveling more because you could spend weeks in any of those cities and still be discovering things.

  • Use that extra time to immerse yourself mawr in those places.

  • Have you had any experiences in Japan so far where you have felt intimidated on a level of fear of being harmed?

  • Never, ever.

  • Not once in three years, the only place you might feel intimidated is in areas of Tokyo like Kabuki Traore, where you get people on the streets that tried to lure you into bars, drug your drinks and then charge you half a billion yen for a beer.

  • If you ever get approached by anyone offering you free drinks or special deals, just ignore them and walk on the matter how persistent they could be.

  • Other than that, though, Japan is remarkably safe.

  • I talked about this a bit more in a previous video, so if you have time, check that out.

  • But otherwise no, never, Mr Pig says.

  • Will you eat me?

  • Yes, if you are roasted accordingly, Would you fight one horse sized duck or 100 duck sized horses?

  • Ah, horse sized duck.

  • One target, one baseball bat job done, Lily Devin's says if you made babies with a Japanese woman, what would you call it?

  • Joffrey go fuck yourself.

  • Has anyone really being far even has decided to use, even go.

  • Want to do look more like you have no idea how much frustration this question has caused me.

  • I read this question when I was really tired and I couldn't work out if it made sense or not, or if I was going mad on the subsequent time of resources that I have dedicated to try and unearth an answer to this question, have been substantially disproportionate to the importance off the actual question.

  • A question that isn't even there.

  • Go fuck yourself.

  • What would you say is the most memorable place you've bean to in Japan?

  • It's actually a bridge in Osaka, and it's quite famous spot.

  • The bridge is called Ebisu Bridge, and it's in the heart of Osaka in a place called dot on board.

  • The reason.

  • It's my most memorable places.

  • Whenever I go there, I've been there about four or five times.

  • I always meet many cool people, many strangers.

  • Maybe I'm a bit biased, as I did have quite a cool, romantic kind of encounter there a few years ago, which I might write about, but if you get the chance.

  • Definitely visit Osaka if not for the people or the atmosphere.

  • Certainly for the food, which is amazing.

  • Osaka is known as the kitchen of Japan on the food is fantastic.

  • What are some of the best but underrated or off the beaten path places you've visited in Japan?

  • There is one whole region in Japan that seems to be off the beaten path.

  • Most tourists and it's a terrible shame, is it's a beautiful place and has got a very exciting, like, mystical feel to it.

  • Still on, that is talk the northern region off Hondshew.

  • Having lived there for three years, I've been very blessed to explore and see a lot of it.

  • But there's so much to see and do.

  • There's Lakes Gorges, Cat Island, ski slopes, Fox villages.

  • If you ever do any extended traveling in Japan or have five days to spare, I would recommend hiring a car on just driving around it and seeing what you confined.

  • I recently traveled around part of it with my friends Rachel in June of Charlotte on there'll be a video of that trip coming out next month, so keep an eye out for that But yeah, I really highly recommend talk.

  • Have you been to a cinema in Japan?

  • What are some of the kinds of movies shown their cinemas in Japan showed?

  • Just awful Film where apparently having a good plot or likable characters is an important films like Terminator Genesis, Submission Impossible, Rogue Nation.

  • Terrible, just terrible.

  • But the most frustrating thing is they do often show films about three months off.

  • They've come out elsewhere.

  • So bear that in point.

  • If you are going to the cinema in Japan, is Japanese transport as convenient and reliable ones?

  • It claims to bay.

  • Yeah, Japan's public transport is so reliable, everything runs with militant like efficiency.

  • In recent years, Japan's got some low cost carriers such as peach, which are really good for flying around the country at low price on Busses as well.

  • Or another way, Willer Express is quite a good one, and they're easy to get around with.

  • If you're in a major city and you're gonna be traveling a lot by train, which you probably are, I would recommend getting one of these.

  • This is a squeaker card, and you just tap it on top of the machines when you pass through train stations, and it's a lot easier than playing around the tickets all day.

  • You can usually get them at any station by using the machine on.

  • Do you have it in English as well?

  • So it's quite for in a friendly Japan is very, very good when it comes to public transport and its reputation is well earned.

  • What's your favorite place in Japan?

  • I guess there are two places.

  • Number one Osaka.

  • In general.

  • As I've already explained the number two, there's a spot on the mountain overlooking the volcano Mount Chalk I, which is the tallest volcano in Talk it.

  • And I often just go there and sit and relax, because on one side I have the Sea of Japan, and on the other I have this amazing volcano and all these mountains and stuff.

  • And if you are wondering what it looks like, it's the opening toe, one of the weight loss videos, so I could go there when I'm stressed and just forget about everything on just stare at this amazing 2200 m volcano, right?

  • For some reason, I find you in a sincere didn't even give a reason.

  • Okay, in your opinion, what would be the top three places to visit in Japan?

  • Number one would be Tohoku region in general, just due to his beautiful scenery.

  • Good food on you could just get lost in it and have this real sense of discovery on.

  • There's lots of hot springs as well.

  • Number to Osaka just because it's the most funnest, brilliant ist bestest city in Japan.

  • The atmosphere, the people of food.

  • It's all the best parts of Japan rolled into one that's number two and number three, the Inland Sea of Japan between Chicago and Hondshew on the best way to see it is by bicycle.

  • Now I'm not crazy.

  • There's actually a chain of islands that you can cycle across.

  • There's 100 kilometer cycle route that goes across a chain of islands in the inland Sea.

  • It goes from an amici in Han Shooter in a bar in Shikoku.

  • You can do it in one day, and you can rent bikes for about 1000 yen, so it's very convenient as well.

  • And I did it in August with a friend on.

  • It was just really beautiful scenery or the rice fields, mountains, fishing ports, to go through.

  • It's called the Szymon Army Code, or I've put the details and description box below, but 10 out of 10 do it.

  • It is amazing on a lot more fun and rewarding than climbing Mount Fuji, in my opinion, even if I did get mild sunstroke by choosing to wear a bandana instead of a hat on a day when it was 36 degrees learned from my stupid, stupid mistakes.

  • But those are the three places I recommend saying overall in Japan right now and here until the last day of September.

  • Got any tips for things to do in Tokyo, By the way, a few months ago, I asked you where I could do the Wang Ko sober challenge.

  • You politely replied that it was a Morioka, so I took a day trip there.

  • Many thanks for that.

  • 75 bowls.

  • First off, well done on those 75 goals off noodles.

  • I'm not bitter about being beaten again, so get up a 6 a.m. and then just walk around Tokyo for the next 12 hours, trying to it with a clear mind, trying notice everything around you as much as you can.

  • Almost in a meditative state on every hour.

  • Try and take five really good pictures.

  • By the end of the day, you have seen an insane amount of Tokyo, and you'll have 60 pictures to help you recall journey.

  • Then profit from the whole thing by writing an article about your journey.

  • Using all the pictures on Give it a bold, slightly pretentious name, something like a moment of Tokyo.

  • No Tokyo moment.

  • Yes, good luck, Benjamin, I believe in you.

  • And finally, Joel says, How come in some videos in the same video, there's parts where you're shaved, not shaved.

  • Is there two of you?

  • I have no idea what you're on about.

  • Make continuity is of the utmost importance to the abroad in Japan Channel and on a final note, come to Japan now, whether yen is utterly worthless, your money will go a lot further.

  • I hope you've learned something useful from this video.

  • Don't forget to hit the like button because it's the only way I know you actually like this stuff.

  • As for the next ask abroad video, the topic will be everyday life in Japan, and I'll be looking at questions that have been scented as well as questions below this video.

  • So feel free to leave a question.

  • Thanks again for watching.

  • I'm off now to learn how to be sincere.

  • Except I'm no.

morning.
