  • Mm.

  • This is what we're up against here.

  • It's about two or so hours up the mountain.

  • We're hoping to get up there before the sun comes up.

  • You'll have to excuse my excitement on this one.

  • I have wanted to explore this place in the dark since, like 2000 and five, when I was just a little kid jumping around.

  • I feel like a little kid again.

  • I am so excited about exploring this place at night.

  • Well, it's dark.

  • I'll give you that.

  • It's kind of what you expect for this time in the morning.

  • We just came through the main entrance way here, and then the path splits off right and left.

  • We're gonna take the right path.

  • Also, I should note that it's actually not this right in here.

  • It's really it's just the camera.

  • Can't believe this camera man.

  • There's no way I would have been able to film anything like this, like, 10 years ago.

  • I think I actually have some footage from getting dark in Fushimi Unity.

  • Really?

  • And it just didn't look good.

  • I've never seen these signs before.

  • Okay, so if we see monkeys, we probably you won't see monkeys one of the really fun things about Bush meeting that is, there are all these little off paths or al coves for you to go around and explore this way too many for me to have explored them all.

  • Ah, lot of them are really small and simple like this, but worth a little visit nonetheless.

  • Who she mean that he's one of those places that I've always wondered what it would be like.

  • Thio explore Completely empty.

  • I've gotten near empty.

  • Have you ever been here without people?

  • No, No, we're always visited during the day.

  • The first time I was here in 2000 and five, it was almost empty.

  • I came during the evening and went down at night and going down at night.

  • This way, the path is very clear, right?

  • But going the opposite way the path kind of split when you're in the dark is tough to tell which way to go.

  • So basically everything else is back this way and Mount Kennedy And thankfully, restrooms are gonna be this way.

  • Also, I don't remember having all these go this way and way back signs.

  • You know what I think?

  • People getting confused here might have been a problem before the first time.

  • I had no idea which way to go.

  • Okay?

  • And it looks like the bathrooms are only open from 7:30 a.m. to 4.

  • 20.

  • That's a weird gated.

  • Yeah, Well educated there is closed right up.

  • Why?

  • They closed for, like, three hours and 10 minutes.

  • That's just a really weird amount of time to have the bathroom's closed for.

  • What was that?

  • Yeah, wait, It's definitely You heard that, right?

  • Yeah, I heard that.

  • It is definitely coming from okay.

  • It's probably a monkey, Dude, it's probably You saw the signs.

  • Let's keep moving.

  • No monkeys today?

  • Nope.

  • I'm not deal with monkeys today.

  • Especially some of the monkeys out here could be really, really aggressive.

  • So as cute as they are.

  • Wow, That's beautiful Over there.

  • We've got another alcove over here, and this one's actually a really nice one.

  • So let's go check it out.

  • E e will say they keep this area really well.

  • Let even at night.

  • But you feel like you've discovered a hidden area.

  • Obviously is not hidden.

  • Anybody can come up here, but I got the fields, That's for sure.

  • Are you ready for the real creepy part?

  • Yeah.

  • What's what's that?

  • What's creepy?

  • There's a guy over there.

  • I heard I heard, like, a bag rumbling.

  • But that was like a monkey or something.

  • And he was always doing is just like this.

  • Yeah.

  • Okay.

  • Okay.

  • So it looks like it was a bit of a shortcut.

  • We probably would have come up from there.

  • There we go.

  • This way.

  • It is not that bright out, by the way.

  • Like we can't see and see that it's just No, it's just pure darkness.

  • It looks more like this.

  • Tow us, but let's ramp up.

  • Oh, e this'll is everything I thought it was gonna be.

  • It is quickly climbing to the top of my recommendation charge to check this place out at night.

  • Between the light cutting through the moon, up in the sky and everything.

  • This is just spectacular, Victor.

  • What do you think, man?

  • Is it worth it?

  • More than I could have asked for it.

  • To be honest, you never imagine to have a place like this entirely to yourself.

  • Just wow.

  • And now, in addition to monkey warnings, we also have bore warnings, so double the fun.

  • One of the most obvious merits of visiting during the day would be that these shops and whatnot are open.

  • But there are also no shortage of vending machines on the mountain either.

  • You hear the AL?

  • Yeah, totally.

  • Some of these shops here.

  • You can also get your name and the date and whatnot.

  • Hand written on a small toady shrine like this one.

  • Here.

  • This is a little bit bigger, but they do have smaller ones.

  • Hi.

  • Tech automatic lights cannot overstate how impressed I am with the effort they put into lighting everything.

  • This is not what I was expecting coming out here at this time.

  • No, it's a short timer.

  • It is like Victor has never seen a light before.

  • That just automatically expecting everything.

  • Pitch black Thio.

  • I'm not complaining.

  • Mm.

  • Oh, we're already at one of my favorite viewpoints.

  • Yeah, e don't know.

  • Victor noticed a shooting star in that sky shot that I just took their I'm just lucky.

  • What could I say?

  • The question is, before I showed you, Did you notice the goal was to go up in the dark and come down with a little more light that way?

  • we get to experience both sides of it and now we're raising the sun.

  • It's a view you get from this space here and has the added confusion of not just one, not just to but three different routes that you can go from here.

  • This map of the potential possible routes in Fushimi in that is a pretty good representation of why I say you could spend an entire day here.

  • Don't sell yourself short on the amount of time you give yourself.

  • Don't try to rush this place.

  • So which way do you think we should go?

  • Laughter, right.

  • Well, can't go wrong.

  • But going right, Yeah, I'll be here.

  • And as soon as we get back into the Torii Gates, it's dark again.

  • Loving the mix of blue and orange is the sky starts the light up.

  • It's it really looks nice coming through here.

  • Also, this light is a bit of vibe.

  • Victor Victor is not enjoying it.

  • Moving on.

  • How long do we spend in that tunnel?

  • Like no more than five minutes.

  • What?

  • Thank you.

  • At least we're close to the top.

  • What?

  • Okay, So that that particular stretch of Torii Gates is is just a mystery.

  • Thank you.

  • We're almost at the top.

  • Things has just been a lot of stairs.

  • The one thing I've always wished about this mountain is the top wasn't just like like this that we could you could actually like, see the view from the top of the mountain.

  • But with Fushimi Inari it's really about that experience of walking through the tunnels of 20 gates and finding all those hidden path off to the side.

  • And this place is really an adventure in its own.

  • That's why this is to this date by far still one of my favorite places in the entire country.

  • Oh, dude, I think I found one of my favorite spots and I totally forgot about it.

  • Have you been through here?

  • No, it's not quite a waterfall, so don't get too excited A good time.

  • There's a There's a bucket.

  • What?

  • It's the famous Fushimi Inari pipe bucket.

  • All right, so the little waterfall thing I told you about finally found it.

  • But the only way you can see this area at all is with the night vision in its little night vision.

  • Light camera does nothing because these air such a beautiful, bright orange.

  • But, you know, the camera just ruins that.

  • I drive me, not see it and see it like this.

  • I got a better camera someday and come back.

Mm.
