  • look at that line it's like this all day

  • Every day this is a very popular little place i'm at the back of the line this place opens from 11 to 3 o'clock

  • during its lunch on which we're here right now but there's still a huge huge wave

  • When you get inside you need to buy a ramen ticket it's cool that the ticket machine has an english translation as well big plus

  • for travelers when you're seated staff will ask you if you want nummy meaning regular or

  • promoting meaning large tell them what you want and then you're good to go i ordered a large but actually couldn't finish at all

  • So this is scheming

  • alright let's try this game and i'm so excited for this cold al dante noodles served with a separate bowl of hot

  • creamy fish balls and chicken bite on soup wow look how thick that is you can see the ramen soup just like

  • Linked to the noodle

  • but i'm talking about

  • he's a little bit of the fish powder if you tasted negative

  • But definitely it's a lot saltier than if you're not a little ramen it's so good let's try to meet

  • So tender now this is ramen look at this rich white soup mm-hmm

  • different flavor than the spam in for the soup i thought lighter

  • it's not as big but i want to tell you which one is the best left i like both

  • number three godzilla

  • look right behind me is godzilla let's go upstairs and check them out

  • godzilla is at the top of toho cinemas next to hotel grocery

  • If you're not saying at this hotel you're gonna have to use a cafe inside, to see my man godzilla up close

  • We're all the way to the top you can see?

  • Godzilla's head it's amazing and there's an awesome view from up here

  • This place is so cool if you come close enough you'll notice he has the only team also what's cool is

  • Every hour on the hour from 2 up to 6 they actually have a show mikey won't check it out

  • number four

  • tokyo metropolitan building you can actually go up both the south and north towers in this video i'll show you the south

  • wing

  • So right behind me is the tokyo

  • metropolitan government building it has an awesome observation deck i'm going

  • To show you guys what it's like to be up there then instead of down here and it's?

  • Free man i'm so excited for this one

  • this is the south tower observation deck and if you want you can shop for souvenirs and chill at the cafe

  • So we made it all the way, to the 45th

  • floor you can see all of tokyo from up here it has like this

  • panoramic view from all the different windows so you can see north-south east-west it's

  • Amazing and if you come here on a clear day you'll be able to see everything

  • just, like today like i said earlier the best thing about this it's free

  • number five shinjuku gyoen park

  • we've just arrived at shinjuku

  • Gyoen, now there are several parks in all of shinjuku but this one is my favorite park so let me show you what's inside

  • So one thing to know before you get here it costs 200 yen to get into the park that's not such a bad thing

  • cuz it's not a lot of money plus it keeps the riffraff out

  • right behind me is a traditional japanese

  • teahouse called a good day you can actually go inside and get traditional matcha and

  • Traditional sweets all for 700 yen but don't worry it's really easy to find in the japanese garden

  • if you're in shinjuku and you're just like tired of all the buildings and all the people this is the perfect spot because you can

  • just

  • like relax and chill i love this way i really really love it and this is just a little section of the park it's so

  • Big but there's just, so much free open space for you just, to like hang out and there's a super awesome chinese garden right here

  • and

  • There's this cool greenhouse all the way in the park there's no it's a charge to get into this beautiful greenhouse

  • It even has this cool waterfall inside

  • number six kabuki joe so this is

  • Kabukicho known as a red light district in shinjuku but it also has some cool stores and restaurants

  • like this 500 yen ramen shop or this 24-hour grilled seafood place is 24-hour sushi joint and right next to it japanese barbecue

  • but, to get a real feel for this place let's check it out at night

  • So this is one of tokyo's red-light districts there's a lot of bars

  • There's a lot of girls and there's a lot of nightlife going on if you know what i'm saying in addition to the nightlife there's

  • actually a lot of restaurants here it's actually worth checking out if you kind of tire to the japanese food is really good chinese and

  • korean restaurant but a lot of people come here for the host and hostess clubs

  • These guys must have had to work really hard to break the top ten

  • months of gestation month of amin's satisfaction in japanese oh

  • We were there earlier at kabukicho we've actually moved maybe two to three street's down this is?

  • Actually where all the host and hostess clubs are now it's quite expensive so i don't know if you actually want to go inside

  • But if you want to like sit down have some drinks talk, to some very attractive females or males

  • Then this is the place to go i've actually never been

  • but you guys might want to check it out and just one street over

  • There so planned which is a completely different how do you say

  • Form of entertainment where you can actually go and paper girls but you have to be careful because

  • some of them don't actually accept any corners one special note if you do try to mention here i really recommend you go with a

  • japanese person or a local person because you can get ripped off very very easily in one of these places they do have

  • separate venues for foreigners in some of these places and they'll charge you a

  • Freaking lot of money so just be careful if you really do want to try to venture out, into one of these places

  • So this is a robot restaurant it's pretty cool right so it actually costs 8,000 yen per person

  • That's kind of expensive i mean that's like the price of?

  • disneyland tickets are even actually a little bit more you can actually probably just go to design either instead so

  • what i'm recommending

  • is that we skip this place and let me show you a place in fact a little bit more interactive up to you this show

  • is still pretty cool if you really want to go

  • Number seven: Zaho

  • So this is Zaho - you actually get to catch your own dinner, this is gonna be awesome, let's do it

  • One thing to know

  • fishing is optional: if you're lazy

  • you

  • can just order it straight from the menu but it costs a little bit more than catching your own fish

  • You, took the bait - but no hook

  • Harder than it looks

  • yeah, we did it, we caught one

  • So what's cool is you can actually ask them how you want it prepared

  • This time we actually have two so one is going, to be butter Yuki and the other one is going

  • to be Sashimi - I can't wait i'm so excited

  • this is the sea bream we caught - also known as Tai in japan it is the but butter Yaki which means grilled butter

  • I'm so excited it asis works so hard to catch this

  • just, tastes like really good fish let's move on to the sashimi

  • You, can see through the sashimi this means it's super fresh i also got this cocky fried look how big that thing is so awesome

  • Put some lemon on it you know dip it into some sauce

  • that's amazing how that just melts in your mouth i love this this is actually one of my favorites here

  • number eight: Omoide Yokocho

  • love the smell of yakitori in the air feel like i'm transported back in time walking through these tiny japanese streets

  • this is alloyed a

  • Yokocho if it hope with small parts gathered together so everything is served in small dishes you get yucky tony

  • robin you have so but probably not gonna get it filled up here it's mainly a drinking place there's a

  • stereotype that mainly all these salary men go here but it's actually becoming a very more trendy thing in japan

  • And you'll find that your own younger people come and now if you look inside

  • there's actually a lot of turns bike up here so

  • You shouldn't feel short comfortable by coming into this place so this is actually a lot better than the older guys older there's a lot

  • more tourists rappy what doesn't rip you off which is a good thing

  • golden guy there are more than 200 bars and these small streets since most parts only fit about six to ten people

  • there is an unwritten rule that a person staying the longest needs to give up their seat to new customers most of the bars have

  • Cover charges so make sure to ask if it's not written at the entrance to be honest i personally

  • try

  • To avoid places with cover charges so this is shinjuku's

  • golden guy it's pretty cool they have bars on the first floor in some of the cases actually have bars that go up to the

  • Second floor it's really really steep stairs so you have to be careful you don't have to even go inside you can just like walk

  • around which is pretty cool really really feels like japan okay it might be a little expensive but worth checking out

  • oh, and michael got ripped off together

  • that's pretty cool i just got interviewed by japanese television

  • number nine vr zone

  • This is pr so in tokyo now if you don't want to go to the bars or you with kids if you just want to

  • have a good time at night this is a place to go a whole building is just a virtual

  • reality place there's like so many things to do you can actually literally spend the whole day there and just hang out well yeah
