Don't shoot me, she's the copy and then the guys like- - Every show ever. - Copy right, every clone show ever. - Over the past few days Rachel has been staying here with me in Fukuoka City. (cheering) We've been kind of keeping it a secret until now. - It's my first time ever coming to Fukuoka, ever. I've been hearing about it so much. Everyone I've ever talked to who has been to Fukuoka I've asked them about it and they're like, "Oh Fukuoka is great" and Jun and I are trying to figure out where we want to move, cause we have no idea like with YouTube and stuff we could really move anywhere in Japan we want, it's just a really difficult decision. So since I've been hearing so much, I decided to come down here and scout out Fukuoka to see if I should bring the Jun. - So Rachel has been here for a few days already now, the first day you came and we went and got pancakes. - Oh my God that was the first thing we did, it was breakfast. I've already had breakfast at six a.m., but it's time for second breakfast. - [Micaela] Second breakfast! - At eleven, this is breakfast time. - [Micaela] Sounds good. - [Rachel] Yes. - [Micaela] I took Rachel to bibliotheque in Vioro it's in the basement first floor of Vioro and it is my favorite place to grab pancakes, they have like these nice fluffy buttermilk pancakes. They're very thick and they serve berry sauce, whip cream, cream cheese and ice cream, I think. Rachel went with the eggs benedict pancakes and she had her egg fried cause she doesn't like runny eggs and I got my ultimate favorite which is berry cream cheese. Ooohh, a lot of pancakes are hit and miss in Japan because they can feel like spongy or dry but these ones are just thick, they're moist, they're tasty and I like the way that they're decorated and I really like the atmosphere of the place and then, we went shopping in Tenjin. - Yes. - Yes, Rachel told me that she really liked recycle shops so we headed to Daimyo to check out some of the recycle shops in that area. I like it, I like the navy blue. I think that would look so cute. (upbeat music) In Daimyo there are a lot of select shops, a lot of boutique shops. Some of the recycle shops are a little more expensive, they're not very, but there was one shop that you really liked. - Yeah, that one wasn't even a recycle store, right? No, it was just a normal one. - [Micaela] It's a select shop. - [Rachel] I liked the style of the clothes they have there, it was all quite unique and it was like, cute but still kind of like um- - [Micaela] Elegantly? - [Rachel] Matureish? You know so - [Micaela] That was a really cool store. - [Rachel] Yeah. - And I didn't find the prices there to be too expensive either. - No, no. - [Micaela] Aside from shopping, we also went to some of my other favorite spots in Fukuoka City. - Oh it's so big, I love it. - [Micaela] Yeah, it's really pretty hey? We went to Canal City and we checked out a little bit of a fountain show, we checked out some shops there and then we went to Ohori Park, which is one of my favorite parks in the city but by then it was getting kind of dark. - [Rachel] Yeah, it was like around dinner time. Both of those places were really beautiful, I'm a super huge nature person. I swear it looked like there was a marathon but just so many people in the city go there to exercise that there would be dozens of people jogging past you, like every thirty seconds. It was a big park so you really get the feel of being back in nature. - I love it there too, so I'm glad you liked it. The next day, unfortunately, was really rainy so we didn't really do much. We hung around Hakata Station and Tokyu Hands and then we went to the VR Zone arcade, which was kind of interesting. The first thing we're gonna do is try Mario Cart. - They're really nice, they said they'll like hold the camera for us and film. - Yeah so we can like, see our reactions and stuff. Yeah, we did Mario Cart and it was intense, it was so funny you can't really tell looking at the clips because we just look like a couple of dorks, we look like a couple of dorks with goggles but they had these hand sensors they put on our arms so when we're driving and stuff we can see our hands or like if we're waving to each other in the virtual world we can see our hands and then you use your hands to grab items in the game and then throw them so it looks really really funny like to people who are watching from the outside but in the game it was intense. - [Rachel] It feels really realistic, one of the items was a hammer too, so you grab the hammer and you get a couple uses and you're trying to steer and then while you're steering you're hitting people with the hammer but then I'm sure people watching you are just watching you go like ahh, it looks really dumb. Ah man it was so much fun. Did you hit people with the hammer? - [Micaela] I didn't, I was trying at the end but then like, - Your guy, you knocked me out so you finished in third. - [Micaela] Yeah, I threw a turtle at you at the end. - You're such a jerk - [Micaela] Sorry. Yesterday Tatsu had some free time so we hopped in the car and headed out to Saga Prefecture to check out the flowers blooming at Mifuneyama Rakuen, which is a very famous flower mountain. - [Rachel] Flower mountain. - [Micaela] It's flower mountain. Rachel is here to visit us and this is somewhere that Tatsu really, really wanted to take her so Tatsu's been planning this whole trip. Thank you, it's so pretty though. - It's really nice. - It's nice to get out into the mountains after spending two days in the city. (calm music) But we didn't shoot so much there as much as we did like a photo shoot. - [Rachel] Yeah, we were having too much fun taking a lot of pictures so the camera kind of got, we started off filming but by the end we were just like, let's take pictures here! - [Micaela] Let's jump in the vines! So we're shooting Rachel in the flowers, she's being a very gracious model. Now she's doing a great job and Tatsu's getting som really great photos too. Well except for that one. Oh my God, she's like consuming those, she's like a flower dinosaur. - Am I a flower dinosaur? - [Micaela] One thing I think is really interesting this time is that having Rachel here I didn't take her to a lot of Japanese food restaurants but one of the interesting things about Fukuoka City that I think makes it so easy to live in as a foreigner is the variety of foreign food available here. (speaking Japanese) (Mexican music playing) - [Micaela] I love this. (laughing) - Oh it doesn't fit. That's something, when you move somewhere else, you're eventually going to miss some of your home food and it might even be weird food that you never even ate much at home but you're gonna get cravings so eventually you want something from home and that's why I really wanted to try out the foreign foods here because if we do move here I want to make sure that I have food that I can get that I like really really love when I'm in that super intense crave for Tai food or Mexican food or like an American burger. I specifically wanted to explore all of those foods that I'm definitely gonna want at some point. - Yeah, yeah, so that brings us back to today. Today is actually the nicest day out of the four days that she's been here, it's finally sunny! - Now I'm super intrigued by how beautiful the city is in the sunlight with all the trees and everything and now I'm hooked and I'm like I have to come back and explore more of this in good weather. So maybe it's perfect that it ended up this way because it's forcing me to come back because I need to see more now. - Yeah, so now we're heading out to Itoshima which is one of the most popular areas in Fukuoka Prefecture, it is one of my favorite places to spend the warmer days because it's all ocean side, there's tons of really cool cafes and when the weather's great you can just go down to the beach, you can go swimming, there's water sports, there's music festivals, there's all these really cool things happening out in Itoshima that I think Rachel will absolutely love. - [Rachel] I'm so excited to see this place. I want to come back and swing here. - We are living our best life in Itoshima today. - Swinging on the trees we are in front of the ocean. - It's actually like the best spot to swing, if you're gonna swing anywhere. - [Rachel] It's a really good swing, it's a little crooked though. - But you're supposed to do it this way though, so it like drops off so if you do it facing the ocean you feel like you're going really really high. - Oh dang. - You should try it, go try it. - [Tatsu] What if we disappeared? - [Micaela] Should we go hide? Did she notice we're gone? She doesn't even notice we're gone. Okay, she doesn't care, we tried to hide from Rachel and she like turned around and noticed we were gone and she didn't even care. (laughing) Dammit! - I think this is my favorite part of the trip. - [Micaela] It's a lot of fun right? - Yeah it's way better facing that way, you know the way you're supposed to face. - [Micaela] Yeah, when you're facing the ocean it's really, it's really nice. It feels like you're going so high. So we are at Current which is one of the most popular restaurant's here in Itoshima City on the coast and it is a beautiful day, we've got a beautiful sea side view and we just ordered lunch and I'm really excited to like see what comes out cause the menu changes um depending on the season, depending on what ingredients are available so you never really know what you're gonna get until you get it but it's always good. Right now, our Fukuoka amaou strawberries are in season so it's kind of not so surprising that they've included strawberry with the ham. I just love when foods are presented with tons of bright colors. Tatsu got pasta, Rachel got pork with mustard and they put this cute little like flower on top and I got the Itoshima pork with the balsamic soy sauce, I'm not gonna be able to eat all this, Tatsu wants some of it so I'm going to be sharing this with Tatsu. It's pretty much tradition, like an unsaid tradition, that if you come here you have to take an Instagram photo in front of these angel wings. Just cause it's something everyone does. - [Rachel] Are we getting food? - [Micaela] Yeah, let's go to Al Pacino. Heaven is a banana waffle.
