  • Good morning guys, today we're going to Kumamoto Prefecture

  • and we're having Kumamoto Ramen and Ikinari Dango!

  • Travelling to all 47 prefectures of Japan,

  • vlogging every day I'm out, this is Odigo47.

  • Alright, so right now we are getting ramen,

  • Kumamoto Ramen which is very famous in this area.

  • I love Ramen.

  • Alright Jun, how is the Kumamoto Ramen?

  • I'd say 9 out of 10.

  • Nice!

  • What's the main difference?

  • So Tonkotsu Ramen is basically pork broth ramen.

  • This one has Ma oil. Ma oil is like garlic and sesame oil, they're fried and it's really great.

  • Before you eat it ... I mean ...

  • Once they serve it, it stimulates you up immediately, because it's really nice.

  • How's the Ramen, Mill?

  • It's good!

  • As soon as they serve this,

  • you can actually feel the difference.

  • It's smells differently, it's got the smoky smell from the Ma Oil,

  • and the noodles are thick and good!

  • Alright, so I got some Suica Cider here at Kumamoto Castle.

  • It's Watermelon Cider.

  • Watermelon's famous here in Kumamoto Prefecture, so I'm gonna try it.

  • Ooooh that's really good!

  • That is really sweet!

  • So it literally tastes like watermelon.

  • Watermelon Juice.

  • Basically carbonated Watermelon Juice,

  • so if you like Watermelon,

  • Kumamoto Prefecture! You should come!

  • Mill, how do you like it?

  • Too sweet?

  • Too sweet for you?

  • Yeah, a bit.

  • A bit?

  • You don't like that sweetness?

  • It's kind of refreshing.

  • It is right?

  • In this hot hot weather.

  • Alright, so we're heading up to Kumamoto Castle at the moment.

  • As you guys know,

  • really big earthquake hit Kumamoto Prefecture.

  • The Castle is in a lot of ruins.

  • Supposedly it's gonna take decades to repair,

  • because they want to make it look like

  • exactly how it was before

  • So as you can see the castle is not in very good shape.

  • It's gonna take a long time to rebuild

  • I never saw the castle before it was broken down,

  • but Millie over here did, so

  • let's hear Millie's take on it.

  • You were telling me that Kumamoto Prefecture was one of your favorites right? Because it's so beautiful.

  • and the castle's like supposedly one of the most beautiful castles in Japan

  • So it's pretty unfortunate right?

  • Yeah, it's pretty depressing to see it all broken down

  • It was all made out of wood because the law changed before they build it, so it was all made out of wood

  • and it was all like real life castle

  • It looked very realistic, right?

  • Compared to others, which I guess was his downfall

  • because it was built like that it was easily destroyed by the earthquake

  • Yeah, I was really looking forward to visiting that place again

  • but now...

  • You'll have to wait until you're older

  • Yeah

  • Maybe when I'm 50 or something

  • Yeah it could be that long actually ... unfortunately.

  • Yeah, so the other main attraction besides the castle in Kumamoto is Mount Aso which is

  • near the airport

  • which we don't want to go because there was a big aftershock a week ago ... uh earthquake

  • And we don't want to endanger ... or put ourselves in that kind of situation just in case another aftershock may occur

  • So we're not gonna go up that way

  • The garden though was really beautiful as well

  • which is really close by to here

  • Kumamoto Square is also another thing you have to do if you're in Kumamoto Prefecture

  • Eat Ramen, Ikinari Dango

  • And tomorrow we will be exploring Miyazaki Prefecture so

  • stay up to date for that vlog

  • And we'll see you guys in the next prefecture, see you guys next time!
