  • hey guys good evening from my really cool hotel  room in kyoto i'm in kyoto at the moment if you  

  • follow me on twitter or instagram you've probably  noticed i've been here for a few days now i'm  

  • staying in this really nice i guess you would call  it a hotel technically i think it's classified as  

  • a yokan a traditional japanese inn but it's really  neat because it's actually a very old uh japanese  

  • townhouse that's been recently renovated into  this brand new hotel but they've kept some of  

  • the traditional elements so it's super pretty  and i'm just really excited to be here in  

  • kyoto because i've never really had the chance to  properly explore it i've been to kyoto a few times  

  • but it's always kind of like a rushed trip and  i've got so many things to do that i don't have  

  • a chance to just wander around and enjoy the city  i booked some extra days here i've got a few free  

  • days to kind of just wander around with my friends  and explore it and i'm really looking forward to  

  • that hopefully we get lucky with the weather it is  saying cloudy on and off maybe a tiny little bit  

  • of rain but in general it looks really good do you  want to look around my cool little ryokan how it's  

  • basically like a house this place is pretty bigwasn't expecting it to uh be this large actually  

  • i was really surprised when i came in but let me  flip the camera around and give you guys a tour  

  • so when you enter the hotel room you come up  a staircase we're actually on the second floor  

  • right now and it brings you to the bedroom here  and interestingly enough it's not futon these  

  • are mattresses they're on the ground there's no  bed frame so it kind of looks like futon i was  

  • looking over the reviews of this place on google  and there was a customer that had complained  

  • about the futon and they actually ordered in these  mattresses specifically for that customer because  

  • they didn't like the futon so that's the reason  they have mattresses here apparently i like futon  

  • myself but i can see why it might be uncomfortable  for people especially if you have like back pain  

  • or any kind of like you know joint problems might  be a little hard to sleep on but yeah so the beds  

  • are mattresses it's a pretty small bed i've been  like pushing them together and using them both  

  • together but i always fall down the the space  in the middle it's been kind of annoying but  

  • it's all right it will do it's a really cozy  little space and look at how pretty it is  

  • it's so nicely renovated it's just beautiful so  this is just a little seating area um it's pretty  

  • artwork on the wall this is a air purifier they've  left me some yukata to wear if i want to just  

  • chill in the house where yukata probably won't  be using it it's really cold right now actually  

  • and some extra blankets but yeah that's the  bedroom now moving into the hallway we've got the  

  • bathroom again it's just so nicely decorated  look at this really modern towel hanging  

  • drying rack it's very pretty like they've kept  some traditional elements of japanese design  

  • but in general the place was very modern  huge bath very nice gorgeous wooden walls  

  • a little wooden bucket that you'd see at an onsen  isn't it cute all the doors in the hotel are these  

  • traditional sliding doors which is a nice  touch so beautiful and a really cool feature  

  • is this this is a floor heater under floor heating  this is just unheard of in japan especially in  

  • these traditional type of rooms so this is such  a cool feature i can just turn it on and off here  

  • and it warms up the floor immediately it's so nice  especially right now it's quite chilly in kyoto so  

  • to come back to the hotel and turn this on and be  able to have a really cozy warm floor on my feet  

  • is so nice this is a recycling sorting area japan  is very specific about their garbage sorting rules  

  • so we've got cans pet bottles which is plastic  bottles and glass bottles here so when i first  

  • came into the hotel i checked out the bathroom  in the bedroom first and i thought this was just  

  • like a closet or something but no it's an entire  other room i was so surprised excuse the mess  

  • this has been my editing room for the past couple  days there's a little kitchenette here i haven't  

  • really been using it they were kind enough to  supply this tea set there's some green tea in  

  • there i've been drinking lots of that while i edit  in this cute little teapot and they also supplied  

  • these snacks these are local kyoto vegetables  that have been deep fried into like chips  

  • they're really yummy and i got some yukon  and some teas this is the tea that i like  

  • at the moment it's really nice and isn't this  traditional chest really cool i opened up all the  

  • little drawers i just had to know if there was  something inside there wasn't unfortunately um  

  • but it was fun nonetheless isn't this place so  cozy i'm really enjoying it and this room also has  

  • a floor heater so the tatami flooring  is nice and toasty how cool is that  

  • another cool feature is there's actuallywashing machine that i can use and it dries  

  • clothes as well so i'm here for a whole week so  that's super handy i will link the company name  

  • down below so you guys can check out their  properties but they have several different  

  • ryokan um traditional inns all around kyoto  so if you guys are planning a trip to kyoto  

  • in the future check them out really cozy and  the prices are quite affordable so yeah glad  

  • i found this place so for the past couple  days i've been so busy i haven't had time to

  • and put together a handmade advent calendar for  me this year i've saved up the past couple of days  

  • and we'll open them together now all right so i'm  a little further behind than i thought i've got
