  • Good morning guys! We're on a road trip today, we're heading to Nokogiriyama

  • Nokogiri Mountain. When I asked my sister where she wanted to visit in Japan

  • this is one place that she found online

  • I've never been there before, but we looked it up

  • and it looks pretty neat! It's a really beautiful hike and they have lots to see

  • At the top there's this really scary viewpoint hanging over a cliff

  • And you stand on the edge of the cliff, so looking forward to that!

  • It should be really cool

  • The drive is pretty long so we'll be there in a few hours

  • But I'll see you guys when we get there!

  • All right so this is where we are right now and over on this side of the bay is Tokyo

  • So if you want you can also ride a ferry across the bay to get here

  • This is where we are right now, and we're going to ride the rope way all the way up to the mountain summit

  • And then around here is where all the sights to see are

  • This is the creepy hanging off the cliff viewpoint

  • And then there's a giant Buddha carved out of the side of the mountain

  • Apparently it's the largest buddha in Japan, bigger than the one we saw in Nara

  • So that's pretty cool!

  • They're roasting dango! I wonder what the flavour... Ooo are they sakura? I think they're Sakura mochi

  • Shay look at all the cats!

  • Look! Three on the mountain

  • Why are there so many cats

  • I wonder if they're all related, they all look kind of the same

  • I'm surprised they don't eat these koi! Maro would devour those

  • Must be friends

  • Wow look at the view

  • So high up!

  • There's Mount Fuji, so I guess that means...

  • Yeah, it's a little too cloudy today

  • All right we've made it to "Jigoku Nozoki" - "The View of Hell"

  • That's the little cliff spot that I was telling you guys about

  • It costs 600 yen to go in

  • All right we've arrived it's just beyond this turn here!

  • Keyboard-san is... This flower is Utsuki!

  • Wow, all right. Gotta climb this!

  • Make sure you bring good shoes guys! This isn't a simple hike

  • We're rock climbing now

  • Apparently there's wild monkeys on this mountain, we've yet to see one

  • There was a sign that said "Don't feed the monkeys!" so I hope we run into one

  • Wow, this is scary!

  • Holy crap we're high

  • We're hanging over the edge of the cliff right now

  • Yikes...

  • Wow this is scary

  • Not for people that are scared of heights that's for sure

  • It's a really beautiful view though

  • I love the colour the trees how some of them are yellow

  • I wonder in the Fall if this would be all red

  • Oh that would be cool

  • The flowers smell so sweet, they smell like vanilla

  • All right next stop is the daibutsu! The big buddha statue

  • I guess it's not a statue, it's a carving, a carving straight in the side of the mountain

  • There's a little pathway off of the path here, what's down here?

  • Oh it's a little, pool of water.

  • that we can't cross

  • No monkeys? Darn, no monkeys

  • This looks like a spot there would be monkeys

  • Is that a monkey?

  • I don't know...

  • Probably not

  • Shay, do these all have different faces?

  • Looks like it!

  • Apparently you're supposed to start counting at one of them, you can choose any one

  • Then just count until you get to your age and then that one represents you

  • Let's see which one I get... 1,2,3,4,5... 27, 28, 29, 30, 31!

  • In the background with no head!

  • This one represents me

  • Well it has a head, it's just on the ground

  • At least it's a pretty one

  • That one's me

  • The one that looks like it's meditating?

  • Could be worse, you have a head

  • Coulda been that guy, he just looks depressed

  • 2nd row 3rd from the top

  • The one that's kinda green?

  • No underneath that one, the yellowish one

  • This one?

  • Yeah

  • He got that one

  • That looks accurate

  • The path is really neat, you go under rock tunnel ways

  • there's statues everywhere

  • We've made it to the daibutsu! Are you ready?

  • Ta-da! It's huge! It is huge. That's incredible!

  • I had no idea there was a daibutsu larger than the one in Nara, so close to Tokyo!

  • This isn't very well known at all, I wonder why

  • I'm surprised there aren't more tourists here... I guess since you have to climb a mountain to get to it

  • It's very quiet here. Yeah it's nice!

  • It's so cool

  • And it's carved into the mountain, that makes it even cooler

  • Look at all these tiny little statues

  • It says "onegai" so I guess you can purchase them from somewhere

  • and leave them here and pray and make a wish

  • Those look like they've been there for a while

  • We're making our way back to the ropeway

  • We were gonna try and hike the way down

  • But apparently that would leave us nowhere near where we parked our car

  • So we don't have a choice, and we're headed back to the ropeway

  • But it was nice, it was a really beautiful view so I'm kinda glad we get to ride it again

  • Where is it? It sounds like it looks cool but I can't see it

  • Oh they're on the counter!

  • There's a little cafe at the ropeway station where you can get some drinks

  • But there isn't any food on the mountain so make sure you eat lunch before you come here

  • All right guys I guess I'll say goodbye here!

  • I hope you enjoyed the video!

  • Please give it a thumbs up (^^)b

  • And I'll see you guys soon! Bye!

Good morning guys! We're on a road trip today, we're heading to Nokogiriyama
