  • These are my japanese convenience store tips and hacks

  • Now many of you know that i've already done a lot of videos on my favorite japanese convenience store foods

  • But what a lot of people don't know is that japanese convenience stores also have a lot of cool stuff outside of food

  • And since it's super hot these days here in japan. I wanted to show you

  • My tips and hacks on how to beat the summer heat here in japan

  • So all of the items that i'm showing today, I purchased from a japanese convenience store

  • well

  • except for one and i'm gonna save that until the end because

  • I thought it was pretty cool and it was worth showing all of you

  • But like always if you want to see what i'm doing on the daily check out the instagram account

  • If you want to help support the channel check out the japan merch and if you have any questions about japan

  • Check out the discord community. And before I start someone wanted to say hello again. Oh

  • my beautiful

  • look

  • whoa

  • Say hello to everyone. Wolfie. You really love that mic

  • So anyways, if you guys want to see what he's doing on the daily check out his instagram tokyo zebra

  • And also check out our channel for our daily vlogs not so daily, but check out what we're doing. There you go

  • Number one body sheet towels. So in japan, I would say like stick deodorant isn't very popular

  • So they usually have spray or they have these body sheets

  • So they like help deodorize

  • They make you smell good what they've done is that they've actually put a cooling agent probably alcohol in them

  • You can see that it's minus two degrees

  • That's not like it feels kind of like this big when it's super hot you go like this

  • And then just like after a few seconds. It starts to like cool all around your neck and it feels super super cold

  • But recently they've actually upgraded these body sheets into these new ones

  • You have like this one exactly. It looks like it's actually from biore and it's advertised for women

  • They almost look like tampons, right? These are like tampon size. Mica

  • Oh, really

  • It says minus three degrees and one hour duration. Let's see. So look at this. Look how long this is

  • This is like wow, it's huge. Yeah, it goes across my body. Maybe if you actually just had like a workout

  • you're like

  • Oh that's freezing cold like you you guys don't know but this feels a super civil it almost feels like you're touching ice

  • It's that cold look feel it. Michael. It's pretty good quality of towel. Let's see if it rips

  • Oh it rips like we've been to the philippines or like thailand and stuff

  • We'd bring like these and like when you're waiting outside, they're just so nice to have this one is also the upgraded version

  • So this one is actually 60 centimeters long doesn't say that it lasts as long but it does a super cool towel

  • So if you're looking for something a bit

  • More manly this is a super cool towel

  • Look at this one, this is huge. This is huge. This is like a super sheet

  • How cool would you be like when you're trying to like best someone you're like, yeah, check out my town

  • If you do come to japan

  • This is like a nice thing to have especially like I guess if you have kids and you just want to wipe their face off

  • And it's clean

  • Oh really put this on wolfie it's gonna be like my face is burning good thing. Michael is around ice can smell menthol

  • Yeah, you can smell it. It's like you might throw

  • It's like it's on my face like this. I've so

  • It's really strong. Huh? It is super strong. My face is almost burning right now

  • I feel i'm getting kind of cold in here. But let's do the next one. Number two instant eye spray

  • Hey, michael, if I was a marvel character, which one would I be?

  • No

  • iceman

  • So

  • This one here. I think a newer product. It's called instant ice. So basically it's supposed to turn the mist into ice

  • Oh, you can see the steam coming from that

  • Whoa, that's so cold. It's ice. I can feel that

  • It's straight up eyes

  • Wow that's icy crazy, that is super cool that's actually colder than the towelettes. That's super cold

  • Yeah, but it doesn't last so long it hurts right

  • It's I accidentally yeah, so you don't want to put it directly on your skin. Thanks for testing that michael

  • number three hiron ice bag if you guys have ever been in

  • Japan, they have these pocket heaters where you kind of just open it up

  • Put it into the air and it gets really hot for

  • Eight hours 20 hours and like they're perfect for like keeping your pockets warm keeping your hands warm

  • I've used them so much in the winter. And then this one is a recent like new release

  • And it's kind of the same concept what it's supposed to do is turn into a bag of ice. This one is like

  • instantaneous you're supposed to just put your fingers here like so and once you squeeze

  • all the liquid in the top mixes into

  • Well, it's not even a liquid. I think it's just like a mixture and then there's like it feels like sand in here

  • Michael, you call it one two three and wolfie

  • There is liquid wow instant cold that's ice feel that

  • It's just right even says made in japan

  • No, it's pretty cold

  • like you can also use this if you

  • Hurt yourself, like if you injure yourself and you need to ice something. So these are like really nice to keep in your sports bag

  • Um, it even has instructions that if it gets too cold

  • You're supposed to wrap something around it not like directly applied to your skin because you can kind of burn your your skin

  • also interesting

  • you're not supposed to take it on the plane because I could see this kind of exploding but this probably wouldn't be

  • A good gift to take back home number four salt candies these little ones

  • There's like there's so many different versions, but these are perfect when you're really really hot and you're sweating all day

  • It's good to just take in a little bit of sodium

  • A little bit of salt just so that all the liquids and fluids you're drinking is retained

  • Basically, they're like little salt tablets that are flavored

  • This one has like a lemon flavor and kind of more like a vitamin style

  • And this one here is more of kind of like a energy style

  • It has calcium and oh, it has vitamin b and vitamin c as well, so have you ever like taken these?

  • You haven't taken these before. Which one do you want to try the energy one lemon? Oh, yeah, they're both lemon actually

  • You can see here's like the tablets here's the two different tablets number five shirt cool

  • Strong so this next one is called shirt. Cool

  • Raycon strong meaning rikon like you feel like this strong cooling sensation

  • So it's a little bit different than the other products because you're supposed to spray it on your shirt before you go

  • Out and then when you go out and you start to sweat, then you start feeling the cooling sensation

  • So I got a brand new shirt. Let's see what we got. There you go

  • Another japan shirt, let's just turn this inside out

  • Spray spray spray spray spray spray sprays, I can feel it just like hitting my skin and it's feeling cool already

  • I feel so naked right now

  • Wow, I already feel the cooling sensation

  • You have to sweat though i'm sweating already I swear so easily. Have you seen the videos i'm always sweating

  • Oh my god my eyes hurt

  • Yeah, it's pretty strong michael, can you try this

  • Can we spray you?

  • No. All right. You're not cool

  • You are not cool before I continue. I wanted to give a quick shout out to our sponsor book

  • And this next one is for all of those professionals out there

  • That have to wear a nice suit to work, but you still want to stay cool

  • This one says

  • Which looks like a tie so basically what you do is you put water on this you just you know

  • Get put some cold water on here. See that this thing really soaks up the water you can see

  • the mesh right there

  • And there you go looking pretty good and i'm feeling pretty cool

  • No, I am a professional salaryman look i'm wearing my tie can I get you like a beige shirt?

  • Maybe then I can you know start a fire for you. Do you even want more comfy?

  • They teach you to be prepared

  • Yeah, that probably is right. I look prepared to go to work. I look prepared to be cool. You look prepared to be fired

  • number seven frozen drinks

  • So this one is kind of like a tip or advice if you're looking to get some drinks

  • At the convenience store, then you can just go to the refrigerator section as normal

  • But if you want to stay extra cool and have really really cold drinks then

  • This is my suggestion

  • If you look in the freezer section

  • What they do is they actually take

  • normal drinks

  • like this calpis and they freeze it which is pretty amazing because one of the problems I generally have is when I buy a drink

  • After like less than 30 minutes it gets super super warm and you don't really want to drink it anymore

  • This one will stay cool, you know for like half a day now

  • This one is a little bit different because it's actually made to be eaten a little frozen

  • You can see how you're supposed to like

  • Open it up and eat it and it's supposed to be kind of like mekan like an orange jelly

  • And then they actually have some frozen pouches. So for example, they have this

  • Coca-cola frozen pouch lemon flavor and then they have pocari sweat. Oh, man. My hands are freezing. Yeah

  • I'm, basically holding ice you can see that's condensation. This one is pocari sweat, which is kind of like a sports drink

  • They actually call it an ice slurry

  • It almost sounds like you know, it has like alcohol in it

  • Probably will get like an ice cream headache though

  • And then you'll be speaking with that ice. Slurry

  • So there's that and then if you need some energy

  • They even have energy drinks like this one and it's made for being frozen and this one is actually lychee flavor

  • Let me just show you this energy drink. I am feeling a little bit tired

  • Oh my goodness

  • This double yeah, I see double

  • It's nice cold and jelly number eight salty lychee

  • This next one is kind of like a little hack for those summer party days

  • It's a salty lychee drink

  • It's from okinawa and it looks like just like a regular drink and it's like it's good to drink obviously

  • In the summer because it helps you retain fluids in the summer

  • but a little trick that I found out many many summers ago hanging out with some friends on the beach is that

  • This works out as to be the best chaser for tequila

  • Ever have you ever had tequila and you like have that nasty?

  • You usually like take a lime or lemon if you drink this after a tequila shot, it will completely

  • wipe away the tequila aftertaste and it is

  • It's kind of dangerous

  • It makes it it works though. It's amazing. Yeah, so i've actually had michael tried before and it works

  • So well, I mean I swear by this kind of sad we don't really do it this we didn't really do it this summer, right?

  • Not this summer. Not this summer

  • But when you guys do go out and you're taking a good shot

  • Pack one of these with you and it will be a lifesaver number nine cup of rock ice

  • now it comes in like different names depending on the convenience store you go to basically it's just

  • A plastic cup with ice inside it goes for about 100 yen. So less than a dollar

  • It's such a simple item, but it's such a lifesaver

  • You know

  • If you're sometimes like drinking outside in the park or whatever you bring this you put your drink inside and boom you have a cold

  • Drink, they're kind of hidden in the back sometimes so you don't really see them

  • In fact, I don't think you knew about it, right? I thought that was for the slushie like the frappuccino machines, right?

  • Yeah, this is like you can just go buy cups of ice and they actually have little like bigger ones that they call it like

  • A party block. Oh

  • I almost forgot the last one. I wanted to show

  • Everyone and number 10 cool babu. Bubba. So like I said earlier

  • This one is not from the convenience store. I actually got it from tokyo hands is a cooling gel

  • It's called cool babu babu ready for this. What's that that hair? That's the longest hair ever

  • That's so weird. Like I have no hair on my entire arm, except I have

  • one hair like this long

  • No, I didn't know. Okay, let me just try this with my hair and everything

  • We thought wow look at that it is so cold

  • Yeah, it's kind of like a gel

  • This thing is just super super cold, and it's still bubbling

  • You can see that just like little bubbles are popping and like the ice

  • is kind of

  • Popping itself. Oh, it feels good

  • Feels so nice and cooling

  • This is like a lot of uses for this put it around your neck if you wanted to just like so little neck scarf
