  • Hey, who's ready for Yamanakako?

  • Sarah Bear is ready? Mama's ready. Mama Bear is ready.

  • [Life in Japan Theme Song]

  • Something special just came in.

  • A FEW DAYS EARLIER

  • Here it is!

  • Not what you were expecting. Some popcorn. That is important for us.

  • Boy, oh boy, oh boy!

  • I've been flying drones for years, putting footage in Life in Japan videos.

  • So I'm super excited about this new, small and easy to fly package from DJI Air 2S.

  • It comes in a nice little pouch.

  • Here it is. Getting it together. It needs a battery. Boy, this is a light little guy.

  • Lets go? Yay!

  • This weekend I'm headed to the beautiful mountain town of Okutama for men's retreat sponsored by our church.

  • There's something so refreshing about getting out into nature for a weekend like this.

  • So I'm out in Okutama. And I got up early. Its a beautiful morning to try the drone for the very first time.

  • The footage is just gorgeous. Oh my goodness.

  • That's a cool view of where we are staying.

  • This is fantastic. I think I'm going to bring it in for a landing. Here we go.

  • First flight done.

  • I'm heading down this trail in my camo so I can't be seen.

  • So that I can get to the bridge down here that goes across the Tama River

  • That's right. This is the same Tama River that goes right by our house.

  • Way up in the mountains. Its just beautiful up here. Its rapid so actually this is a very popular place to go white water rafting and canoeing.

  • What a cool view out here in the middle. Oh my goodness.

  • Look at that.

  • I think I can celebrate the first flight by going to get a coffee.

  • That sure sounds good. I haven't had one yet.

  • Look at this view here, just gorgeous.

  • Its the 7 Eleven

  • I have my coffee. I got a good drone flight in. Now its time to head back to the camp.

  • The men's retreat. There's this beautiful chapel here and I get to play this beautiful piano.

  • Oh yes.

  • Camps and retreats certainly belong to the summer, but in Japan the actual summer break for the schools doesn't start when summer does, but only in August.

  • Whatcha working on Anna? My journal.

  • Your journal? How do you do your journal?

  • I'm drawing a manga and doing my journal.

  • You're drawing a manga. So each day you draw a manga, a cartoon, and that is like your journal?

  • Yep. Ok, can you show me some of the other ones you've done?

  • Um, my favorite one is this.

  • When our ball got stuck in the tree.

  • I wonder if my friends will come to the park today?

  • Yes! They came!

  • [While playing soccer...]

  • Rebecca and Anna's ball

  • It's stuck in the tree! What do we do?!

  • I can't see it! They'll be mad at us!

  • What did the teacher say?

  • Did you get it?

  • Did you take it? Well, did you?

  • Lets, see.

  • [While heading to school...]

  • Where is it? Ahh!!

  • [After school] I found it!

  • My cousin's dad found it.

  • YES!!!!

  • Becca & Anna's ball

  • Thank you!

  • That's so cool. What an awesome way to do your journal.

  • What are you gonna write today?

  • Uhh, right now, what your doing to me in your video. Oh, alright. I want to see it when you're done.

  • So Becca, what was your homework today?

  • We needed to make a 5-7-5-7-7.

  • It's 5 letters. 5 like ta-no-shi-mi-wa.

  • Na-na-na-na-na-na-na.

  • Na-na-na-na-na.

  • Na-na-na-na-na-na-na So 5 letters of one, 7 letters of another.

  • 5 letters, then 7, 7.

  • 7, 7 but we need to start with tanoshimiwa.

  • So that means its 5 and we need to end with toki, so blah, blah, blah toki.
