  • Good morning guys!

  • It is day 2 of the YouTuber road trip

  • and we are at...

  • Geibikei Gorge

  • Which is beautiful so far!

  • Look at this place! It's so gorgeous!

  • And what we're gonna do is... Get on a boat

  • Presumably one of these boats in the background here

  • and someone is going to paddle us through the gorge!

  • Vlogceptionnnn

  • Jun got us an English pamphlet

  • so I can show you guys what kinda stuff they got here

  • Looks like there's lots of different things that we're gonna see on the way

  • Chris said that he came here in the fall before

  • and I can just imagine that it was amazing

  • because the fall leaves in Japan are gorgeous

  • Somebody is going to hand paddle us down this gorge for an hour

  • And it was only 1,600 yen

  • I guess these are the boats we're going on

  • Or maybe those ones over there with the roofs?

  • I'm not sure

  • So this is interesting...

  • We take off our shoes to get onto the boat

  • This is so nice!

  • And take a life cushion

  • We need crowd funding for Chris' new socks guys

  • Yeah, Kickstarter

  • It's so peaceful

  • I wanna live here!

  • I hope these videos inspire you guys to explore Tohoku if you come to Japan

  • I really enjoy here a lot more than I do Tokyo

  • It's a completely different experience of course

  • Tokyo is more exciting, and party culture

  • Whereas there are so many gorgeous places to check out in Tohoku

  • Yeah that's my goal of this Tohoku series

  • Is to inspire you guys to come here, and not only Tokyo

  • The trip down the gorge is about 2km

  • The trip there and back will be about an hour

  • The first point of interest is on the right here

  • It's known as Mirror Rock

  • The reflection of the water sparkles on the rock

  • This rock is 60m high

  • If you take a good look at the rock

  • Bonsai, Cedar trees and other plants are growing naturally

  • out of the rock, so it's also known as Bonsai Rock

  • I like this place better than Matsushima

  • I feel like this should be in the top 3

  • The water is shallow in most areas

  • So if you happen to fall in

  • just stand up

  • As we pass by you can throw a coin and make a wish

  • Was that Rachel? That was good!

  • Ahhh so close

  • This one spot is 5-6m deep

  • Oh wow!

  • Wouldn't it be so nice to swim here?

  • This area looks most beautiful in the fall

  • This is the view you will see on TV, magazines

  • advertisements in stations, commercials etc.

  • All right, so the boat has docked

  • and we've got 20min free time to explore this area

  • and then we're gonna head back

  • So you guys see, not that one, that one right there!

  • The eye shaped hole in the back

  • They sell five stones

  • Wooden balls? I can't tell what they are

  • for $1

  • and we have to try to get them in that little hole

  • and then we can make a wish, our wish will come true

  • Oh there's different ones!

  • All right guys, what should we choose?

  • Oh there's a really cute beetle in there!

  • I'm gonna choose one for love

  • One for long life

  • This is a great kanji lesson

  • En, en, how should I explain en?

  • Like, connections?

  • Something like yeah, that's probably the closest, connections with people

  • One for good luck

  • Ah! Kizuna

  • All right, these are the 5 that I have chosen

  • Oh that was so close!

  • Literally 2cm

  • So powerful!

  • I'll show you how it's done

  • Stand back

  • Aw, come on!

  • Wow, you have to throw it really hard

  • Don't know if I'll be able to do it

  • I think it might've gone in!

  • I didn't quite see it...

  • All right, the guys made that look really difficult

  • Let's see what I can do...

  • Kizuna!

  • Luck!

  • En!

  • Come on Sharla, you can do it!

  • Long life

  • Aw shit...

  • I'm gonna die really soon ^^;

  • Love!

  • Aw you've gotta get love in

  • There's no way you can miss this

  • That's really hard

  • Good try, good try

  • We're going to get one of these plaques

  • and write on it all together

  • Jun got one of the rocks in the hole

  • So we will use Jun's power to make our wish come true

  • We have our top secret wish

  • that we can't show you guys

  • or else it won't come true

  • We are gonna put it... Where's the best spot guys?

  • Hey, people seem to like this spot, it's crowded

  • Should we put it here?

  • Seriously though, why?

  • I like this one, I feel like this is a good one

  • I'm gonna put it right here

  • And it looks like we gotta turn it around

  • because everyone else's wish is on the outside

  • Fingers crossed it comes true!

  • All right, looks like it's time to go back

  • Thank you very much for joining us today

  • All right guys, that concludes our trip down the gorge

  • That was amazing, I can't express how much I enjoyed that

  • It was so gorgeous, and relaxing

  • And I really like how it didn't feel touristy at all

  • They kept everything in its natural state

  • and it was just so nice!

  • I think this is the most enjoyable thing I've done in Japan so far

  • In the total eight years that I've lived here, so

  • I would super recommend that any of you that come to Japan

  • or already live in Japan

  • come here and try this!

  • It's not even expensive

  • The only trouble is having to get up here from Tokyo

  • or wherever you live

  • But it's more than worth it!

  • I really hope this video has inspired some of you guys to check out Tohoku

  • I love it here

  • It is so beautiful, look at this place

  • Thank you for watching, I'll see you soon! Bye!

  • Road Trip Vlog Series is on my other channel!

Good morning guys!
