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. I've got some pins on it as well. Got some Sailor Moon pins, I gotta keep pinning this. Oh I got some, city of Wisconsin, thanks Emily. - [Simon] It's weird because your mouth isn't moving. This could be just anyone else talking. Just shake your face a little bit and I'll talk over you. Hello everybody, my name is Martina and I am going to tell you today all about the coronavirus. You can't read my lips right now but what you need to know is that I love farts. Love them to pieces, they are my thing. I'm just like, the fart stepper. I collect them, I record them. They're my favorite sound effect to use. - I mean, this is all true. I'm gonna take the camera from you but I want you to, don't move at all. Don't move even a, stop, don't move. You don't know this right now but if you turn to your left, you are so close to destroying your head. Definitely. - Yeah I definitely would have Hello everybody, today we're gonna teach you something very important called washing your hands. None of this just going to the toilet? Splashing with the toilet-- Hello everybody. Today we're gonna teach yOu the very important thing called washing your hands. None of this just, getting your hands wet, clapping about and thinking that you're done. No, you need to use soap and you need to use it for a minute and you need to scrub deep. Let me show you how it's done. No more cutting corners when it comes to washing hands. Get your hands wet. Good. There you go. See this? Right in between your fingers, get all up in there right? Get both sides right there, all up in there like that. See this outside right here? Clean your thumbs everyone. So many people just do this and they don't think about their thumbs. You clean that thumb real good. You get up in the nails, wash your nails. All right wash the top of your hands. Wash it all. Right up in those creases, oh yeah. Get nice and slimy up in there. What's really good about this is that this skill is also for non-coronavirus threats. Just for regular hand washing, do it all year round. Not just whenever there's a pandemic. Not that there is one, not that I'm calling it that. Oh god, I'm not trying to, that's not what I'm, just wash your hands. Just wash your hands. (passerby speaking Japanese) - So pretty. - [Simon] Very pretty. (speaking Japanese) Oh yeah. Oh. And then, did you want some green onions? Because I got some green onions. Very cool. - It is way dead in Kichijoji for a Sunday. What is this-- - It's true. - Toronto on the weekends? Like this is so dead to me for Kichijoji. Usually when we bike up the street, it's like playing Frog, we're trying to get by everything. - [Simon] It's still very busy by international standards and many other cities that we go to, this is still bumping. But a Sunday on like 17 degree weather. - [Both] In Kichijoji? - [Simon] This should be rammed. - This should be wrecked. This should be like us trying to get by each other like this so-- - I know. - That person just pet that cow wearing that scarf and I don't blame you 'cause that cow is wearing a little scarf-sie. - [Simon] Go ahead, pet the cow. - [Martina] No. - Go pet the cow. - No I won't. - [Simon] Go pet it. Pet the cow. He wants to be pet. (groaning) Live your best life, girl. Don't let anyone judge you. - No. (upbeat music) - [Announcement] Your attention please. The rapid train bound for Tokyo will soon arrive on track number four. For your safety, please stand behind the yellow line. - [Martina] All right. (announcer speaking Japanese) (soft music) - For reals, this is the deadest I have ever seen Tokyo station. - [Simon] Absolute deadest. - I know this doesn't look dead to you guys but there's like 12 or 20 different lines that are coming in here. - [Simon] This is like central station. - Yeah, soul station. - [Simon] Soul station. (speaking over each other) This is, this is pretty dead. - Pretty shocking, all right let's (speaking Japanese) and see what else is happening around here. - [Simon] Sugar butter-- - Sand tree. (soft upbeat music) Currently on the hunt for some journaling pens. I have more than enough to choose from here. And the prices in Japan, I think, are incredibly fantastic. These pens are just a dollar and they are like, really amazing bright colors. If you look at this, this is a really nice color pink right? Wow. This is, this is how I lose my money you guys. Coming to Tokyu Hands and just being here for ages. Oh but these are more expensive, these are like $4.50 each. All right well, everyone stand back. It's gonna take me some time. (relaxing music) Pompon hips. I could never use these memo sheets. They are so cute, look at this. - [Simon] Yoohoo (humming) - [Martina] There's no way I can use them. - [Simon] Shake that thing Miss Annabella shake that thing Miss Annabella. - [Martina] My favorite Canadian. - Jordy and Rebecca. - [Martina] Oh my god, all the stuff is so cute. It's impossible, I need to leave. I cannot make a decision up in this place of magic. What did you get? - I got myself a notebook and-- - [Martina] Pen? - [Simon] One of my first ever pens that I bought for myself, a nice one. - [Martina] This one is really cool, do you see it? Yeah, it's a marble pen. So as you write, it changes color slowly. - Your pen's so much cooler than mine. - [Martina] Isn't it? There's all different colors, there's six kinds. You can choose one too if you wanna go get a rainbow pen? Look at these. It's like-- - [Simon] Oh wow. - [Martina] Urban and like-- - [Simon] We need stickers for the laptop though. - [Martina] Enhance, enhance. (speaking Japanese) - [Simon] We are just about to do a video on that. - [Martina] Yeah Nagoya eel, very very special and we were laughing when we saw this here. - Let's just go again. - [Martina] No we can't, we just had really good stuff. It's like when we go to Saito and then we try to go to conveyor belt sushi and we're like, we need a break. - It's true, it's true. But we haven't had it for like, two weeks? Still too soon. - It's too soon. It's too soon. (noise of cars rushing) (soft music) (Japanese announcer speaking) (Japanese announcer speaking) (video game noise) - [Martina] You have to win me a toy. Oh god, feels like it's perfect, this must be it. Oh my god-- - That was a good one. - [Martina] It was so close it's painful. (groaning) - Slipped out because that leg.
