  • - Geez Louise, first we have Typhoon Hagibis,

  • Australia sets on fire and now we have the coronavirus.

  • This is shaping up to be a solid 2020.

  • Feels like things are gonna get better

  • because it doesn't seem like they can get worse.

  • But hello, Martina and Simon here,

  • broadcasting out of Kichijoji.

  • The not as busy as usual part of Japan.

  • It's March the first, 2020,

  • coronavirus is freaking everybody out.

  • We're getting tons of messages from you guys

  • on Instagram, on YouTube, emails being like,

  • should I cancel my trip to Japan?

  • Honestly, we don't know if you should cancel your trip.

  • But what we wanna do is show you guys a day in the life,

  • what's happening in the city, what it looks like.

  • The biggest concern that I have for you guys

  • is actually that a lot of tickets you might have bought

  • like Disneyland, or maybe to like the Ghibli museum,

  • that kind of stuff is closing down, right?

  • But otherwise we just wanna show you how everybody's living.

  • We're not all in panic, we're not hiding inside the houses.

  • - [Martina] Wow.

  • - No rice, no life.

  • We must get this now.

  • Oh geez.

  • - [Martina] That's all the face masks.

  • It's been like that for a while though now.

  • I've been looking for them for a while.

  • You put it on your glasses so when you wear a mask

  • it doesn't steam it up.

  • It's a real issue for me.

  • - All gone, all of the toilet paper is gone.

  • - [Martina] So you start a rumor and then look what happened

  • So today's what, February 29th?

  • The last day of February. - Today is the 29th.

  • - [Martina] And we just got to the grocery store

  • to start looking things, you know,

  • to get just because, I'm not saying I'm panicking.

  • I'm just saying that other people panic

  • and then there's nothing left for people who need stuff.

  • - Because if other people are over-panicked,

  • and then they'll just empty out the supermarkets,

  • I gotta make sure that I get to eat something.

  • Not because I'm afraid of the virus,

  • it's because I'm afraid of people afraid of the virus.

  • - But what we're trying to do is, I wear a mask on the train

  • just in case someone sneezes into my open mouth.

  • We're trying to be more thoughtful about

  • what we touch with our hands, how we're washing them.

  • And really, that's about it.

  • People are still out, right ducky?

  • - [Simon] The question is--

  • - Yeah.

  • - [Simon] What kind of mask is that?

  • - Oh my god, how happy am I that you asked this question?

  • Do you like my sailor moon mask?

  • - [Simon] Oh.

  • - You better believe I bought this like three years ago

  • 'cause masks are sold out everywhere in Tokyo right now.

  • But take a look at the back of this jacket.

  • - [Simon] You're very happy with your outfit, aren't you?

  • - Living my best life.

  • Sailor Moon mask, Sailor Moon jacket.
