  • So, I think it's pretty safe to say that this is what my life is gonna look like for the next couple of weeks

  • Hey guys, how's it going?

  • I just moved into my new place here and today's video is gonna be a little bit of a shorter one and wow this place

  • Really needs to be sound treated. I have like a flight in like 24 hours, and I haven't even started packing

  • But we're gonna talk about that a little bit later because you see, If you guys remember

  • If you guys remember, I did a video on three secret cherry blossom spots in Tokyo

  • And I've got this here print that I'm giving it right this one right here

  • I was looking through the comments and it's really really tough to choose like just just choose a person randomly

  • There's so much in there that I didn't feel right. Just choosing one person's. Well, I actually

  • ordered another print

  • And I'm gonna give away

  • Two and i'm gonna announce that later on

  • but before we get to this

  • I can't want to share the story of the last two or three days with you guys because it's been a really good time

  • So let's jump back

  • And just move down to this place yesterday, but I left my shamisen here because I have a shamisen performance nearby today

  • A performance, which I am late for so let's get going.

  • I don't typically shoot videos on performance days, but I told you guys about this one

  • so I thought it might be nice to

  • Bring you along so, plus a lot of the stuff that I do are like corporate events and stuff like that so

  • It's not

  • Entirely appropriate to bring you guys along to those

  • but if you guys enjoy this

  • I'll try to bring you along to more the ones that I can so let me know down below

  • This particular performance is going to take place at a place called shamisen

  • Kato and the owner Kato-san is a longtime friend of mine

  • And I can actually already hear the music of the shop. We're almost there

  • Looks like I made it just in time. (Female speaker: Yes you did) Alright, let me show you guys the space up here

  • So the owner Kato-san usually has events and live shows up here and this one time of year very

  • specially he throws one like right in the shop

  • He clears out the shop puts a stage right in the front and the rest is history. I'm up in about 30 minutes

  • Performance went well. It's a lot of fun. Let's step outside for a second.

  • How's it going? (I made it.) Good to finally meet you. (You too)

  • I Literally interrupted every... Come on in!

  • Few people came out to say hello

  • What's up! and I literally interrupted everybody's conversation just because the sakura was snowing

  • It was beautiful. right after me

  • There was a guy who comes out in a giant cat costume when I mean a giant cat costume

  • I mean like the head of this thing is probably bigger than my body. Is that a good description. Yeah

  • How many stars for the cat guy out of ten? (ten) ten stars?

  • Yeah, that's cat and shamisen playing cat a saxophone. That is a real thing

  • Usually at the end of these events Kato-san throws a pretty wicked party where he cooks

  • Oden, which is like, like a Japanese, I'm not even going to get into what oden is

  • It's really good

  • If you're wondering what it is just google it but he calls himself the Oden master of Tokyo, but I actually have a shamisen

  • tournament tomorrow in Tokyo

  • So I'm gonna take a few minutes here and maybe grab like a drink with everybody

  • Before heading back and getting rested for that tournament also

  • I'm not in a super rush to get back to the insanely empty house either. It's just so empty now

  • It's not that much taller on the inside!

  • Ok, It's about 8 o'clock now. We're just wrapping up here

  • We just enjoyed like I guess it could be called hanami because they were sakura in the park

  • I don't know. Would you call that hanami?

  • (I would call not call that hanami.) I pulled out the shamisen for a bit because there's one person who actually

  • missed the uh

  • missed the live performance, so

  • kinda ya come all the way out here, right?

  • Never get enough of that

  • I just said farewell to everybody at the station

  • We're in Machiya right now. The last time I was in Machiya it was for Kiki's like ten year anniversary concert

  • I think there was an accident. There's like glass all over the road

  • It's really nice to meet everybody who came out so thank you guys for coming out, that was a lot of fun

  • We just hit up the park did a couple drinks. It was a nice night

  • I was going to give you guys a little bit of a tour of this, tonight

  • but I'm just exhausted like

  • I'm done for today. For now I'm gonna get some rest head to the taikai tomorrow, and

  • I'll see you guys in the morning

  • All right so its the morning of the next day and

  • I'm actually leaving like right now for the shamisen taikai because

  • We're gonna be late

  • All right, so it's about 5:00 p.m. Right now

  • I just got back from the taikai it is much later than I thought under normal circumstances

  • I would do a montage, but I'm, I just really want to get this done for now. So just bear with me

  • And I was really hoping at the last like sunset shot that I got of the sky tree

  • Would be like a much more miraculous. Sometimes you get this beautiful beautiful pink in there didn't get it this time

  • It's currently just before 8 p.m

  • my uh

  • My desk and work area used to be here TV used to be over here

  • Sofa was right there. I filmed countless videos in there. Now I just need to pack all the extras up and get out of here

  • there we are

  • Can't forget that and all things considered I guess this is gonna be one of my last times to ever leave this place

  • It's been a good home

  • And that pretty much brings us to today. And by the way

  • Literally the whole house looks like this right now

  • And as for the area as a lot of people have been where is your new house?

  • I'm kind of located around the Tokyo Tower area. So as I said, it's like a little more central in Tokyo

  • you guys better believe that I will be taking you on a tour of the area around Tokyo Tower as

  • Soon as I get a chance, okay that sakura video that I did of the three hidden Sakura spots

  • It seems that a lot of you actually went out to those spots

  • you guys were tagging me and your photos on Twitter and Instagram and your stories and everything

  • Thank you so much for sharing all that with me

  • I was really glad to see how many of you made it out there. But without further ado. I think it's time that we choose

  • some winners for the prints

  • So as this is the first ever giveaway on the Tokyo lens channel. I wanted to make it something a little more personal

  • so I am gonna personalize these and as I said

  • there's two prints instead of the promised one and more than anything it's just because I

  • Couldn't even begin to choose with the number of comments that you guys left me. So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna choose one

  • completely at random and then I'm gonna choose one based on like just

  • Recognizing like that the name or the avatar, whatever. So, let me go into my Creator app

  • Here, I'm just gonna scroll through

  • and stop

  • Okay, so the first winner is going to be I'm sorry, if I butchered this name, I really am

  • Kelly I will try to get in touch with you in the comments below

  • You're gonna get the first one that I held and showed up in the video as I said

  • Right here in this space. I'm gonna choose three more people one two

  • three and

  • Although it's not as big and beautiful as the print I have also turned this print

  • Into some postcards that I'm gonna send out to some people these right here. So those three individuals

  • will be getting

  • Postcards written from me. I've never have never really sent a postcard think even the last time I sent like snail mail

  • I was like, maybe eight years old

  • so if I think these people don't respond by the end of the month when I'm gonna be sending all of this out what I'll

  • Do is I'll just choose somebody else to receive it in their place

  • So there is still a bit of a chance

  • But if you're watching this video and you're one of these people I will be replying to your comment and saying hey you win

  • So let's get in touch and see how I can get this stuff to you. So that is the giveaway
