  • you're not gonna see it journey  across japan destination to suck  

  • i'm not fat perfect no no  way i need to pull over now

  • good morning and welcome back to journey  across japan escape to mount fuji six days  

  • and a thousand kilometers of despair we in  a capsule hotel inside a shipping container  

  • at the base of mount fuji and yes that is  as ridiculous as it sounds but we're here to  

  • do one thing today and that is to see the iconic  mountain itself and it's just outside that door so  

  • grab your cameras and let's go and takelook at mount fuji oh god getting out of it

  • we've traveled almost a thousand kilometers  for this view and it is spectacular is what  

  • i would have said if we'd seen the view of  course it's not there expectations reality  

  • can't even see a single piece of mount  fuji yesterday there was a typhoon right  

  • the weather said oh tomorrow morning it's going  to be a blue sky does that look like a blue sky  

  • i'm a little bit angry as you can probably tell  but we are gonna be loitering around mount fuji  

  • for two days uh around this area so hopefully at  some point over the next two days we can catch  

  • a glimpse just a fragment just a piece of mount  fuji and i will be vindicated and i'll be happy  

  • anyway speaking of happy look it's joey the anime  man how you doing jay hi i'm good you're not gonna  

  • see it i'm just letting you know right now we've  got two days left and as you said we traveled five  

  • days this is the fifth day we're on the road and  we get this journey across japan destination to  

  • suck apparently destination anyway we've gotchallenge what we got today you guys have been  

  • sending us challenges the last five days of our  trip uh we've had about 5000 submissions we've  

  • wheeled it down to just three from our production  team and joey has chosen one what we got all right  

  • this one is from bowie davidson bowie davidson  either fake name or the best parents in the world  

  • what kind of music they listen to who says because  of the pandemic traveling overseas is difficult  

  • right now it is that's right each take a selfie  that looks like you're not in japan and let  

  • viewers choose the winner right interestingmean we certainly can't do it here given this  

  • trudeau pagoda is one of the most iconic views  of japan every single japan guide has this on  

  • the front cover with an actual view of mount  fuji so let's get out of the rain and uh let's  

  • get going this is the more i stand here the more  depressed i feel with that view all right let's go

  • so as day five of our journey across japan  gets underway we make our way around the  

  • beautiful lake kawaguchi at the base of mount  fuji the perfect weekend escape away from tokyo  

  • being just a two-hour drive from the city today  is actually the shortest drive of our trip so far  

  • as we effectively circumnavigate the mountain with  our final destination being izuba which juts out  

  • into the pacific and allegedly offers some of  the best views of mount fuji in the coastline  

  • and amidst the drive in our desperate attempts to  see the mountain confusingly we've got to somehow  

  • try and find the least looking  japanese place for our challenge  

  • seriously i'm starting to wish  i'd brought a bloody green screen  

  • i'm not gonna lie that was the most elaborate  opening we've had to uh video on journey across  

  • japan escape to fuji so far we climbed upmountain no less ladies and gentlemen yeah and  

  • as you climb up the stairs to the pagoda there's a  bunch of warnings for a whole load of boss battles  

  • you have to get past it was the monkeys bears  bears and a wild boar yeah electric fences wizards  

  • and witches and [ __ ] weather and [ __ ] weather  it's a really arduous climb to get up there yeah  

  • but it was a bitter pill for me to swallow given  that most of the photos i get from uh viewers  

  • bragging about their mount fuji view it's always  from the chulito pagoda right right i've never  

  • actually been to the trudeau either so i was  hoping to get that same experience but i guess  

  • the the abroad in japan curse was upon me as well  abroad in japan i've never been able to see fuji  

  • so have you ever been to lake kawaguchiko  yourself jerry no i haven't i've been  

  • nearby it since i've been to like but i've never  actually been at the lake before so it's a really  

  • beautiful place like uh i would put it on my top  10 list of places to come to japan you've got  

  • all right uh you get the blake itself is  beautiful you've got hot springs nearby some  

  • nice real cars you've got fujiku highland park  the best theme park in front of that in japan  

  • and they're not too far from there you've got  hakone of course japan's premiere hot spring no  

  • what no no way no no i need to  pull over now oh my god no way

  • there it is mount fuji we're filming this in 6k  take that to all the haters all the people that  

  • sent me photos themselves selfies without  feed you i'm the winner now i've done it  

  • i've got it it's there i don't know what to  do now in some respects we weren't actually  

  • expecting to see it especially this  morning there was so much cloud over it  

  • screenshot that take that that's going to  be everywhere every time someone sends me a  

  • photo hahaha look i found mount fuji never again  because look ha 6k and we've never done cgi right  

  • that's not a green screen look i can reach out  i can touch it i can touch it yeah we've done it

  • i'm not leaving until i've got a proper view  that's a little bit of it that's like 100 meters  

  • i want all 3776 meters anyway we've stopped  here at family mart which seems boring now but  

  • in alpine regions mountainous regions in japan  they changed the branding for convenience stores  

  • as you can see family mart is usually bright green  it's actually got this kind of wooden finish and  

  • in fact of all the family markets i've seen in  japan this one is the nicest looking it looks  

  • like a swanky four-star hotel but the reason they  do that is to blend the convenience stores into  

  • these mountainous regions just makes it look more  aesthetically pleasing and nice now joey mentioned  

  • he'd found somewhere potentially for us to take  a photo and i just can't concentrate because look  

  • it's mount fuji look there it is again it's there  yeah it's about fuji joey a tiny tiny tip of it  

  • it's their hair i know our journey's over thanks  for watching guys hope you enjoyed it all right  

  • where you going oh i got your family chicken  you really are a great friend you know the you  

  • know the way to my heart joey oh well guess what  i found another way to your heart because i happen  

  • to find a british theme park a british theme  park a british theme park an ing land good god  

  • what what what why how i've been to england  once right and it it looks better than england  

  • it looks pretty insane wow yeah all right so  i think that might be the perfect spot to film  

  • uh our challenge for today well i'm gonna  finish this family mark fried chicken while  

  • overlooking the summit of mount fuji the abroad  in japan dream and then we'll go this british  

  • theme park and we're going to uk in it has  he got a double-decker bus i [ __ ] hope so

  • good god we've just arrived and uh  

  • there is the british theme park it's like  a little village is it nostalgic it's very  

  • nostalgic it's like i'm home wow let's get  in there all right what are we waiting for

  • i'm home

  • there's like a working train station here withlittle train actually yeah yeah this is actually  

  • quite impressive if i was drunk and i woke up one  morning with a big hangover i would probably think  

  • yeah i'm not in the uk but it looks like the uk  still it's really surreal but very interesting to  

  • see a sort of japanese interpretation a japanese  perspective on what the uk looks like well there's  

  • a pub over there called uk margaret uk margaret  margaret i don't know and there's humpty dumpty  

  • as well just like the uk look at this that is  the most sinister interpretation of humpty dumpty  

  • that i've ever seen like growing up as a kid we  brought up to love humpty dumpty he's kind of  

  • this friendly character who accidentally falls off  a wall and i think we can all relate to that but  

  • that is not someone i can relate to that is  absolutely horrifying it feels a bit like  

  • uh stratford-upon-avon which is the town where  william shakespeare was born and kind of got that  

  • architecture from the tudor era yeah right so  we've got about an hour joey to go around and take  

  • some photos this is a home run in terms of taking  photos somewhere that doesn't look like japan  

  • couldn't be better so now joey and i are  going to split up and take three photos each  

  • around the park and uh come back and uh  then we'll get you guys to vote on which  

  • one you think is the best which person took  the photo that looks the least like japan  

  • i'll meet you back here an hour good luck okay  all right so uh let's start with the railway

  • all right i've only ever been to england once  but i know enough about it to uh know what  

  • looks the most england like let's go this way  there's this little kind of 1920s 1930s style  

  • form of transport i don't know what it is is itbus i think it's a bus there's a train coming over

  • what there something like  this yeah something like that  

  • that was pretty british all right let's do  that looks kind of cool from the outside but  

  • i've been playing around with it i can't even get  in look at this door doesn't open very far but

  • what and i've got passengers teddy mcbee uh  basil the bear um i think this could be a good  

  • a good place to kick things off opened in 1990  shizenji park has spread over 50 hectares with  

  • the 15-inch gorge railway built by british  company i know the park may seem like a ghost  

  • town today the uk is one of the most desired  travel destinations for japanese travelers  

  • a study in 2019 ranks the uk as the fifth most  desirable place to visit with hawaii taking the  

  • number one spot followed by france italy  and australia and the mainland us in sixth  

  • place after an hour of taking degrading selfies  joey and i meet back up to see what we've got

  • so we've taken our photos and we're about to  go through them but before that just as we  

  • walked into this place we took a photo of joey  and i standing on the street and i wrote great  

  • to be back home showing my good friend joey around  he's come all the way from australia and he's not  

  • disappointed and we thought we'd do it to see if  people actually thought it looked like the uk and  

  • what have we got joey well we got uh a bunch of  comments a lot of them are just you know unclearly  

  • understand our sense of humor like i feel there's  a joke here i'm not getting this picture is trying  

  • to tell us something but i can't point it out but  then you have some people who are genuinely like  

  • not gonna lie didn't think the uk actually  looked like this do you want to start with  

  • your first photo jay will go one at a time sure  uh so the first one is this one right here it's  

  • me in front of the double decker bus penny lane  yeah uh i call this uh barbershop on the corner  

  • shop on the corner yeah because that's how penny  line goes right then you lane there's a barbie on  

  • the corner that's a very clever one yeah my first  one is me driving that little truck over there and  

  • i call it who's driving this thing uh it's me with  a little bear you put way more effort into your  

  • selfies than that i don't i do i'd get carried  away with this stuff i love it i love it but what  

  • do you got next uh i got this one right here oh  wow so i snuck into a train station i snuck into  

  • a train station without a train yeah early morning  train station there's a train here but i haven't  

  • i've heard it but i've not seen it every timego to see it it's like pulls out the station and  

  • drives off somewhere my second one is back at  the uk margaret my favorite pub um but wait it

  • uk margaret sounds like some  sort of abrasive british  

  • grandmother but it's the pub that the uk deserves  all right what's your final photo there and this  

  • is my final photo it's the side of the bus of  the first photo but i just wanted to get this  

  • because this has to be quote of the year right at  the on this thing it says upon the theme of human  

  • nature and culture with its wealthy natural  environment we create this park to give you a  

  • breathing space prepared for the coming year wow  romney bus transport carrying on the theme of kind  

  • of bizarre japanese english my third and final one  is this one and it's called the thorno of the rose  

  • there's a little rose bush over there just like  the uk and there's a sign warning people about  

  • the thorns on the rose and they've cocked it up  they've written please know the thorn of the rose  

  • so there you go those are our three photos please  vote on the one you like the most write the name  

  • of the photo in the comments and uh see who the  winner is but for now let's get out of here karen  

  • on journey yeah let's go see if we get one  last glance of mount fuji while we're here

  • i did i broke i broke the uk as we're leaving  the park by good fortune we catch the eye  

  • of the park manager and to thank us for turning up  he leads us into the gift shop to generously gift  

  • us a pair of flip-flops so the manager of this  place has seen us walking around with a camera  

  • found out where youtube is and is now giving  us a present it's a unique thing of the  

  • british theme park fish flops they're sandals  they're flip flops the shape of a fish genius

  • fish flops this day just got at least 25  percent better but the generous gift-giving  

  • wasn't over yet it seemed for me the friendly  park manager had one more item in mind wow

  • i'm not fat yes this is  the shirt that speaks to me

  • this is the best day of my life finally a t-shirt  that speaks to me debuts and i i'm not fat perfect
