  • - Hey guys, it's Micaela

  • - Hi, I'm not Micaela.

  • - She's not.

  • - I'm Rachel

  • - Don't be fooled by the red hair, she's an imposter.

  • 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
