  • hey guys good morning from tokyo i'm in tokyo  at the moment i'm here for a couple days  

  • i thought i would contact my friend alex and see  if you could get us into another cool property  

  • you guys seem to enjoy the 13 grand a month  apartment tour that we did last time so  

  • i think we're in luck uh it sounds like  he's found something really cool for us so  

  • i'm just heading up to his office  now and let's see what he's got  

  • fundamentally that's why i hate charlotte oh hey  good god i didn't see you there all right so chris  

  • is my cameraman again thank you chris first things  first according to the comments of our last video  

  • i really suck at petting dogs then i completely  agree with those could you teach me how to pet  

  • scotty properly okay so you tried to pet her like  a cat and what you do with the cat is you know  

  • kind of go above like that right yeah but dogs  they actually do better if you go from the side oh  

  • okay so yeah just try putting her on the side and  then you can make it yeah there you go there we go

  • okay so which property do you have  for us today what are we going to see  

  • okay so with the last one that was an insane  place as far as i remember it was about a thirteen  

  • thousand dollar a month rental for five bedrooms  it was so spacious and just ridiculous it was um  

  • can you top it this time i can definitely talk yes  what are we gonna see so first off this time it's  

  • not an apartment it's a house all right it's an  entire house and it's not for rent it's for sale  

  • so you can actually buy this one all right what  what's the price tag on this one you wanna here  

  • i'm ready all right it's 790 million yen  wow so just about eight million dollars  

  • all right and where's it located it's right in  between harajuku like uh where christmas where's  

  • the first place exactly okay that's a really  good area yeah and it's big it's over four floors  

  • and one of the floors has a very dark secret  so you're going to see what that is pretty soon  

  • all right let's go see the the dark secret  are you ready yeah let's do it let's do it  

  • all right we are here at the eight million dollar  harajuku home it's a house it's four floors right  

  • there's four floors to this place yeah and every  floor is crazy than the other one you're gonna see  

  • i can't wait let's go ahead just  one thing you need to know this door  

  • locks itself so i actually put a little stopper  in there so yeah just a little security feature  

  • a door yeah it's a massive door very heavy and if  you come in over here you'll see what looks like  

  • most people's living rooms in japan is actually  just the entrance and you can tell that because  

  • you have all this shoe storage over here this  entire wall of shoe storage of course so you  

  • can see right here just coming through  it is an architectural masterpiece inside  

  • and there is a reason behind that it's actually  because uh the original owner of this place was an  

  • architect and he designed it he designed it from  the ground up and that's why you're gonna see not  

  • just these crazy glass panels right here but not  just this but everything else in here is just a  

  • marvel of uh architecture yeah and what do  you do when you have your friends over right  

  • it was a long drive for them they need  to come in and relieve themselves right  

  • so that's why you actually have the  first there's a quadcopter's closet

  • what i thought was the bathroom wasn't  actually a bathroom so what i was saying again  

  • uh when your guests want to relieve themselves  uh after the long drive on the way to your  

  • nice house in harajuku they can come  into here into the amazing bathroom right  

  • with again and charlotte this time you  get a jacuzzi as well yay yes and a towel  

  • drying rack yeah oh my god i've always wanted one  of these yeah yeah so you can have warm towels in  

  • your bathroom isn't that always a nice luxury  i've never seen that in japan yeah that's cool  

  • and if you go over there you can go into your nice  jacuzzi for two as you can see oh that's neat yeah  

  • with two pillows as well now technically this  is actually the master bedroom and also the  

  • master bath believe it or not oh yeah so they're  considering this if you come over here to be one  

  • of the bedrooms but the previous owner obviously  had this as more like a living room you could do  

  • it either way yeah i i definitely prefer this as  the sitting room i don't think i'd want to put a  

  • bedroom here yeah it's kind of a strange place at  the bedroom yeah absolutely wow it is a very nice  

  • room you have your gigantic l-shaped you don't  even have to uh imagine anything in this place  

  • one piece of furniture for you yes oh justice but  you come out here and you have a very very nice

  • wooden deck all to yourself that's really cool  yeah i love the wooden background that would  

  • look so nice with some lights that would  you would have your fairy lights on yeah

  • just take a look at those stairs it is  unbelievable again you have an architect  

  • uh who built this from the ground up for  himself so he did not spare anything in design  

  • or materials for that matter so come on up now  coming up to the second floor you're going to see  

  • you step right into probably one of the nicest  living rooms in all of tokyo at least in the house  

  • uh very very high ceilings very high yeah the  ceiling windows with these crazy looking blinds  

  • it's not the greatest viewing in tokyo but it  is so nice but i'm sure the light is really  

  • nice the light is very nice in here yeah  you have light all day long and then also  

  • you see this guy what's going on there well  for one thing this is where i would put my tv  

  • yeah do you have gear yes you have your tv right  in front of this large mosaic thing kind of like  

  • a turkish back vibe yeah it is and you come over  here and you have something i haven't really seen  

  • in too many japanese houses are that many houses  in general what is it this i'm calling this  

  • the panic room right so this is the panic  room you have these solid metal walls here  

  • there's no way to get in or out except yeah climb  up except for the climb up so you really have to  

  • panic in order to get out of here leaving at the  security room slash panicling slash parasites  

  • uh dungeon kind of thing very interesting yes  we make our way over and up these beautiful  

  • stairs on the glass glass rails into what  is one of the nicest toilets i've ever seen  

  • the sink is really high i feel like things  are usually really low in japan this feels  

  • like it's the right height which is strange  it is yeah it's it's right at which i guess  

  • because the ceiling's so high they kind of have to  make everything higher or look really strange but  

  • this is beautiful it is it is absolutely  beautiful that's just the toilet that's  

  • not even the shower room no no no no this is  the kitchen dining room this is a pretty big  

  • dining room right this is quite nice it's quite  light everything's kind of cozy yeah the last  

  • apartment we saw it was just like ridiculous  right it was too big honestly this entire  

  • uh house is about 330 square meters okay right so  just over i don't know 3 600 square feet so it's  

  • a big place especially for japanese standards  but you don't feel like it's too big you have  

  • the high ceiling it's nice but so room is a nice  size yeah let's go check out the kitchen actually  

  • so i love this you have this kind of industrial  almost like a ramen shop kind of thing so you know  

  • you make your food you put it up here and then you  put the bowls and everything the spent bowls at  

  • the bottom and yeah charlotte will go and clean  them for you it's cool how it's separated but  

  • you can still see what's going on and it's still  it's open but it's not a completely closed kitchen  

  • and there's an oven now come on over here you  have to see the oven this is a real oven again  

  • yes and space for probably a very very  large refrigerator yeah this could  

  • fit certain wouldn't be able to reach the freezer  you have the four burners of course and you have  

  • plenty of space for all of your wow that's a lot  of space for coloring can we go up two more or  

  • is it one more up and then is there like a secret  let's find out okay let's go up yes wait a second

  • is that what i think it is what the first real  bedroom okay this feels like a bedroom this feels  

  • yeah this is more of a bedroomy kind of placemean apart from the tile wall over there which i  

  • just love by the way yeah that's an interesting  choice isn't that amazing it's really pretty  

  • there we go oh that's cool yes yeah that's stuck  i thought the first that's really pretty yeah not  

  • only the sunset's going to look pretty but if you  actually make your way outside oh it's a balcony  

  • yeah it's such a tiny little door yes you've  got the hobbit door leading out to the giant  

  • balcony on your roof wow this is cool this is  quite nice actually imagine owning a balcony  

  • like this in the middle of tokyo yeah it's very  cool i mean the views are you know not exactly  

  • the best but they're still pretty nice i bet they  look really nice at night time they do with like  

  • the big buildings lit up yeah i can imagine it's  really pretty i would have my barbecue over there  

  • i would have the little seating area out there  yeah definitely what would you do with this though  

  • i don't know it feels very open with all those  apartments there kind of like watching you i would  

  • definitely put up some kind of like fencing maybe  like a bamboo folding screen type yeah that could  

  • work maybe some like trees in a pocket yeah yeah  but wow this is a lot of space to work with this  

  • is now we just went through uh from one of the  bedrooms now let's go and see the other bedroom  

  • so come on over here let's check out the  second bedroom and it is quite dark right  

  • now but at the same time you're sleeping inbedroom you don't really need that much light  

  • one thing though let's take a look over here  see what is in here oh yeah your walk-in closet  

  • oh yeah this is quite nice oh cool i like it  it's very simple it just looks like pipes like  

  • drainage pipes yeah it is strange because  i've seen a lot of walk-in closets in japan  

  • and generally speaking they have these t-shaped  poles on them i still can't figure out exactly  

  • what they're for just hanging clothes now if  you come out over here how many floors did i say  

  • four floors right is there is there like a ceiling  level oh my above sorry i have to show this oh my  

  • oh my this is the second bath it's actually just  a shower oh my but i mean it's telling you the  

  • truth it's nice i just it's so bright i love how  bright it is and it's like mostly natural lighting  

  • coming in it is yeah i mean honestly if you turn  the lights off it's not really going to make that  

  • much of a difference yeah just a shower this time  but but who needs more than a shower and if you  

  • need a bath you go downstairs yeah exactly yeah  so where is this fourth floor is it above us like  

  • on the very roof is there a rooftop like garden  lounge area oh no it's the secret torture basement  

  • yeah you ready to see the secret torture basement  okay let's go see the secret towards your basement  

  • i wasn't expecting this it's got likelove hotel vibe to it yeah that's so far  

  • let's just actually see what it  looks like inside they consider this  

  • the uh let's call it the play room right so  at one point they were thinking of putting  

  • karaoke into here yeah this is going to be an  entire karaoke room that'd be great for photos  

  • it would be great for photos in fact it's got  a rose carpet it has rose carpet sunken floors  

  • just over here by the way yeah so you can have  your uh your nice l-shaped sofa on the corner  

  • while you have your gigantic screen right over  there broadcasting your favorite karaoke tunes  

  • this feels like so out of place with the rest  of the house it is it is absolutely out of place  

  • but i love it and it's like a bar it is this is  actually a bar specifically for the basement yes  

  • you have a bar complete with storage for all the  liquor that you're gonna need oh my god okay this  

  • is weird but cool this is very weird i could  definitely find a use for a room like this yeah  

  • it'd be fun to like hang out with your friends  down here i could have a ddr machine over there

  • i haven't heard that in years maybe i could  make that like a ball pit yeah i would love  

  • to meet the people that lived here i'm sure  they were very interesting very eccentric yeah

  • well there you have it an 8 million dollar house  right in the middle of harajuku omotesando it is  

  • really nice i love the staircase it's beautiful  and that bathroom is gorgeous i really love the  

  • dark feel to it it's very cool but it's a little  too like like cool cold feeling i think i prefer
