  • up in morioka city in iwate prefecture which is  my absolute favorite city in japan you've been  

  • following me for a while you know why that is this  is actually the first place that i ever visited  

  • when i came to japan when i was really youngthink i was 16 years old this is the first place i  

  • visited i did a two-week high school exchange here  and i absolutely loved it so when i moved back to  

  • japan a few years later i started off in tokyo and  then i just realized i really wanted to be up here  

  • in iwate so i moved up here and spent another  few years here so this is like my hometown this  

  • feels like my hometown really i feel more at  home here than i do back in canada sometimes  

  • so i'm always super excited to come back here i'm  actually here for work i'm doing an interview in  

  • about 30 minutes so i'm just heading out the door  but i wanted to kind of like catch you guys up on  

  • what's going on in my life i haven't been making  too many videos because i've been traveling all  

  • over the place i will fill you in on that later  but first i'm gonna head down to morioka station  

  • to meet the crew we're gonna film a quick little  interview which is actually going to be part of a  

  • video that they're playing at the opening  ceremonies at the olympics in tokyo it's very  

  • exciting i'm slightly nervous i've prepared whatwant to say so hopefully i can deliver it properly  

  • but let's go the weather is very nice i was very  lucky it was kind of cloudy and slightly rainy  

  • yesterday but today is gorgeous all right guys  my interview is over it went quite well except  

  • when i arrived the camera crew had set up  everything right in the center of like the  

  • bus roundabout area at morioka station and there  were like 100 people there lining up to wait for  

  • the bus and they have me doing an interview right  in the middle of all of them everyone's staring  

  • at me probably trying to figure out if i'm some  famous i don't know actress or something it was so  

  • awkward it made me really nervous but i think it  went well i think it went quite well um i just  

  • answered really naturally they were just asking  me questions about like why i love iwate what  

  • brought me to morioka in the first place you know  what's so great about it what i would like to tell  

  • other foreigners about it and that's going to be  part of a promotional video for the northern japan  

  • area that they're playing at the olympics  so i'm really excited to be a part of that  

  • because promoting tohoku is one of the things  that i really want to do with my channel and my  

  • audience so i'm really really excited that i got  to be part of like a really big project that's  

  • going to be part of the olympics so i'm with  my friend mark now do you guys remember mark  

  • last time he was in my videos was two years ago  he's the cool guy that works at the magic bar  

  • do you remember that you guys might remember  if you've been following me since then that's  

  • quite amazing thank you for sticking around  for two years but yeah he picked me up and  

  • we're gonna go for a drive it's a beautiful day  here in marioka we're gonna go up to the mountain  

  • and we're gonna go see an observatory like  a viewpoint uh where you can see the whole  

  • city and i've actually never been there before  which is weird i don't know why i've never been  

  • up there so i'm super excited up on that one  it looks like there's a observatory up there

  • sweet you've never been up  there awesome that's exciting

  • it's so beautiful up here you guys what why  have i never been here holy crap the view  

  • is so amazing i can't wait to show you guys  is right in front of me the whole city isn't  

  • funny this is so cool thanks for bringing mehad no idea this existed the weather's perfect

  • we're heading up now apparently they built  a new observatory building it's pretty cool  

  • looks like they spent a lot of money on  this place get a higher view from up here  

  • the sun's about to set like 20 minutes  until sunset so we're gonna catch it

  • you can hike it i will do that one day

  • you've never done it have  you climbed um mount fuji  

  • i have twice never again i said  that the first time never again

  • so we are back at the same game center  that we went to two years ago for  

  • revenge ddr if you guys remember we came to this  game center we went up there we were all excited  

  • about playing ddr and then they like shut all  the machines off and told us it was time to leave  

  • i found out mark's like pdrs that we got to  play i'm really excited i hope they have fourth

  • that was really sad and i want to play so we're  gonna go play now but actually mark sprained his  

  • ankle at badminton practice today so he's probably  not gonna be able to play or at least he shouldn't  

  • so we're gonna have to find some like hand rhythm  games to play maybe they have the drum game uh  

  • drum master is that what it's called dramania yeah  i love that game so maybe don't do it don't do it

  • yeah in the corner because nobody  plays anymore ever it's like just me

  • so it's been years since i last played and i still  remember how to play i think i'm still good at it  

  • but i am not in good physical shape holy crap  that song killed me i used to put it out like  

  • 20 times a day couldn't even handle it once i'm  gonna get some easier ones now so i don't pass out

  • oh

  • there's an air conditioner to use after personal  air conditioner that's so cool i think that is  

  • enough exercise for sometimes i am like like holy  crap good exercises because he's an idiot but he  

  • did amaze me they did way better than me with  his sprained ankles so i need to practice i'm  

  • gonna go back to my hotel for a bit mark's got  some plans and then we're gonna meet up again  

  • later if possible since my last night here so  i'm gonna go for dinner or something so yeah

  • back in my hotel room my very messy hotel room  i'm leaving tomorrow morning i should probably  

  • start cleaning this up relatively soon orprobably won't be able to pack in time mark is off  

  • on his date well it's not a date but i was joking  with him he had a female friend contact him like  

  • out of the blue like they hadn't talked in a while  and she said she has something important she needs  

  • to talk to about he has no idea what it is sotold him that she's definitely gonna confess her  

  • love to him so i'm excited to hear if that's  actually what happened so he's out for dinner  

  • i'm gonna just chill in my hotel room and work on  some videos for a bit but now i can finally sit  

  • down and update you guys on what i've been doing  because i haven't been able to vlog very much so  

  • i have just been traveling all over the  place i don't even know where to start  

  • i can't even remember what i've done that you  guys probably don't know about so i think the  

  • first trip that i made this summer was to japan  filmed a couple things that aren't out yet um but  

  • they will be out soon so there's some like random  japan videos here and there in between korea stuff  

  • and might even have some canada stuff left no  i think i've put all the canada stuff out but  

  • my videos are just all over the place because  i've been all over the place i went to japan  

  • for like a week then i went back to korea for  a little bit and then i went over to canada for  

  • quite a decent length of time i really  wanted to spend some quality time  

  • with my family so i was there for a few weekstold myself that i wouldn't do too much youtube  

  • stuff while i was over there i really just wanted  to use this time catching up with my family and  

  • enjoying my time with them and i really did i had  a great time back in canada i'm glad that i put  

  • the camera away for it i just spent a lot of time  just chatting with my grandpa just catching up and  

  • yeah it was really nice i really needed a break  and i think i just missed my family i hadn't had  

  • really any quality time just sitting down and  talking with them in a while so that was really  

  • nice and then after canada i went back to korea  for a little bit and when i say a little bit  

  • like a very little bit just like a short time and  now i'm back in japan and i've been in japan for  

  • two weeks i think i'm on my second week now  and i'm here for about another week or so  

  • i've got things that i need to do all over the  place i've got a couple meetings um i've got a  

  • sponsored video that i'm doing uh in two days  i'm going to be flying to a secret location  

  • to do a video there with michaela which  i am so excited about and then i've got  

  • some meetings in tokyo after that so it's  been non-stop traveling for me these past  

  • couple months and it's been great because  i like traveling i love seeing new places  

  • i love catching up with people because i have  friends all over the place friends and family  

  • all over the place so i feel very lucky that  i've been able to spend this time to kind of  

  • catch up with everybody and see so many people  so it's been really nice i have lots of really  

  • fun videos coming out so just wanted to say  thank you for being patient well i didn't really  

  • upload much these couple months and hopefully i'll  be able to make that up to you with all the fun  

  • things i've been filming while i've been away  traveling just need some time to sit down and  

  • edit it all so that will be happening soon i hope  and yeah i guess that's about it that's really all  

  • i've been up to just lots of traveling lots of  hanging out with people um and catching up so  

  • it's been nice it's been nice but it's been busy  and i've been really sick the entire time i don't  

  • know why i have this cough that i've had for like  five months now i should probably go to the doctor  

  • i always avoid going to the doctor because i feel  like they give you unnecessary medicine to just  

  • cover up the symptoms so they don't actually try  to figure out what's wrong with you but at this  

  • point i think i probably should go because it's  getting kind of ridiculous i coughed so much that  

  • i dislocated a rib so i think it's getting to  the point i should probably go talk to a doctor  

  • maybe i'll do that when i'm back in korea if i get  a chance but that's my life how are you guys doing  

  • that's the update on my exciting life yeah and  then today is my last night in morioka so i'm  

  • just gonna spend it chilling with mark i'm so  thankful that he wanted to hang out again and  

  • he offered to drive us around in his cool audi  so i get to see lots of the city and yeah i'm  

  • really excited about that don't know where we're  gonna be going tonight once he's done his date  

  • probably maybe out for some food if he didn't eat  too much he said we could go and get some food  

  • because i haven't had dinner yet um and maybe just  for like a drive of the city at night time it's  

  • pitch black out there now so we can't really go to  like koi wai farm or anything where i would have  

  • loved to take you guys but if you do want to watch  some other videos of this area i'm gonna link my  

  • tohoku road trip that i did a couple years back  now with chris brought in japan and rachel in  

  • june it was a really fun road trip that the four  of us did through northern japan you might have  

  • missed it if you're new to my channel or if you  were never subscribed to my other japan channel i  

  • do have another channel that i haven't updated  in a while still deciding what to do with it  

  • but i do have another channel which was my main  channel for a while and yeah we had some really  

  • great northern japan uh road trip vlogs that we  made so i'm gonna link all those down below so if  

  • you guys are curious to learn more about northern  japan which i really encourage you to do because  

  • like i said in my interview today it's my favorite  area in japan hands down and i've been all over  

  • japan spent 12 years here i traveled all over the  place and i can easily say that northern japan  

  • and specifically iwate will always be my favorite  part of japan it's beautiful here the people are  

  • so nice so um willing to help you if you have any  problems so friendly i just really really love  

  • everything about here i feel really comfortable  it it feels like my hometown really i feel super  

  • comfortable here like you guys saw in my vlog  today it's gorgeous the mountains are so beautiful  

  • and it's just a really nice balance of city and  nature i find it's the perfect size marioka is  

  • the sister city of my hometown victoria bc  in canada and i think they're pretty similar  

  • in size and like maybe even population  that's how they become a sister city  

  • they have similarities like that um so like  maybe that's why i feel comfortable here  

  • but it's gorgeous you guys if you are interested  in visiting northern japan and i have to shoot  

  • off a couple places that i really recommend you  going yusendo caves it's an underground cave very  

  • cool it's actually one of the first spots i ever  went to in japan when i was 16. still remember it  

  • it's absolutely gorgeous gabey k gorge that will  be linked down below in my northern japan vlogs  

  • breathtaking might even be able to say it's the  most beautiful spot i've ever been to in japan i  

  • think that's what i titled the video actually  koiwai farm is really nice yeah it's just a  

  • huge open field there's lots to do there lots of  fun things to do some farm animals to see lots of  

  • foods to eat there just the view is gorgeous  just going for the view alone is worth it  

  • if you like road trips i recommend doing the  drive from morioka to miyako on the coast  

  • during the fall when the leaves are changing color  it's the most beautiful stretch of road i've ever  

  • seen so if you like road trips rent a car do that  go out and see the coast it's beautiful out there  

  • once you get to miyako but just the drive itself  is so much fun it's just like stunning views you  

  • guys i wish i had video to show you i wasn't doing  youtube at the time when i did the trip myself  

  • but in the future i really really want to  make that trip and share it with you guys  

  • for those of you that won't make it down there  yourself so yeah those are probably just some  

  • of the spots off the top of my head that i would  recommend you visit in this area but please please  

  • consider coming to northern japan if you do go  to japan everyone goes to tokyo or kyoto or osaka  

  • it's so much better up here you guys i don't even  hesitate saying that it's so much better up here  

  • just in all aspects so please consider  northern japan if you do come to japan

  • you
