  • Hey guys! Me and my friend Holly are going on a cruise tonight on Sumida River

  • Which is this river in the background here

  • We just got out of Asakusa Station

  • and we're walking to the cruise ship now

  • quickly because we're kinda late

  • I haven't really been told much about what's going on tonight

  • I was just invited to go on this cruise to test it out before they open it to the public

  • and all he told me was that it's ninja themed

  • We're both wondering how the hell you could make a cruise ninja themed

  • So we will see I guess when we get on there

  • All we really know is that it's...

  • I don't know...

  • Maybe?

  • All that we really know is that it's on this river in Tokyo

  • and it's all-you-can-drink

  • And that's really all they told us!

  • It'll be interesting! It's an adventure anyways!

  • I think that's our boat over there! If we're correct. Hopefullty we are!

  • So as we walked up to that boat there was this old Japanese guy in a ninja costume

  • So I think we found the right place

  • We're just waiting now, the cruise is supposed to start in 10 minutes or something

  • What time is it... I think it's supposed to start at 6

  • And it's like 5:42 so

  • About 20 minutes

  • It's gonna be a boat like that one down there

  • Ninja man

  • Our boat is here!

  • It looks awesome!

  • Yeah! The ninjas are here!

  • What a sweet job

  • "Just wear this costume and act like a ninja - that's all you gotta do."

  • We're getting on the boat and hopefully not falling in the water

  • It's so nice

  • They have gacha machines!!

  • Where should we put our shoes

  • It's super Japanese

  • It's tatami in there so we gotta take off our shoes

  • Sweet so it looks like there's food! There's a bento box in front of me here

  • Complete with Ninja Trivia

  • And "How to make a Shuriken"

  • Ok these ninja trivia are actually pretty sweet

  • So I'm just gonna place them throughout the video so you can learn about ninja too!

  • Ninjas carried crickets or cicada in their pockets to muffle the sound of their steps

  • Cheers!

  • All right, time to check out the bento

  • Oh wow, that's fancy!

  • It looks so good!

  • One last thing for you YouTubers, this music is royalty-free

  • Yaaaay

  • Looks like we've got some sashimi over here

  • Maguro, I think that's tai, I'm not sure what the very white one is

  • It looks really good

  • Some ebi-tempura

  • Meatballs and some kind of white fish

  • This one looks like dessert, a sesame ball

  • Omg is this tofu? Awesome

  • Stewed vegetables

  • And some rice and pickles

  • Sweeeet. They just brought us some sake!

  • Is it a warm one? Yesss

  • Warm sake - do you want some?

  • Mmmm so good

  • Now I want a sake kitkat

  • As a rule ninja were never over 60kg in weight.

  • They also didn't eat strong smelling foods to avoid odor being detected

  • Sweet we get ninja masks

  • They're gonna teach us how to put them on now

  • Open it like a square

  • The long part is on the bottom

  • Put your head in

  • Now let go, and with your right hand keep holding

  • and your left hand let go

  • and find the other corner

  • Ninjas carried a calorie rich cookie called a "katayaki"

  • They needed the calories while stalking their victims out

  • That's right, now pull it back tight, yes!

  • And tie it! Exactly like that

  • It's pretty easy right?

  • Took me 14 times and I still can't do it

  • Holly makes a good ninja

  • Natural born

  • So after we cruise for about half an hour

  • We're gonna stop and go outside and check out the view

  • I can see the Sky Tree right across from us here, it's huge!

  • I can't even show you, it's just the base

  • All right everybody, we have arrived! So if you would like to go upstairs, now's a good time!

  • It's so cold out here! Make sure you bring a warm jacket

  • Inside the boat is super warm, they have heaters in there

  • But when you come outside to check out the view it's really cold

  • If it's this time of year

  • Check out the Sky Tree in the background

  • So when they're battling inside and they don't have a lot of space to use their katana

  • They'll put out one of these, or a ninja star

  • There's the ninja star

  • If you've seen in movies and anime and manga

  • ninjas will be shooting like this

  • Ninjas never do that, that's totally fake

  • If it's a real iron ninja star, it'll be 200g

  • So a ninja really only carries 3-4 ninja stars with them

  • And you might have read on your ninja trivia sheet

  • that actually the ninja star is not used to kill

  • it's used more to stun an enemy and escape

  • or then to come in and kill them with the katana

  • All right, kneel down here's the line

  • Last!

  • Ok so I failed ninja star throwing horribly

  • So next up is Holly! And she's gonna do the blowing tube thing

  • So we're gonna win this time!

  • Go Holly!

  • 3 points!

  • Whoever makes the most beautiful ninja star gets a prize

  • So I feel like I have a chance this time

  • Done!

  • In case you wanna make it yourself!

  • She matched her ninja star to her clothes, with the purple and the pink that was nice

  • My purple and pink obsession got me a prize

  • Here you are

  • Thank you~

  • Yay everybody, give us a hand

  • It's a handkerchief and you can fold it up like a Happi Coat
