  • and then ryotaro's just got a pile of shaved ice  drenched in strawberries the serious strawberry  

  • is like elegant 100 atrocious looks good that  looks delicious it is good what's that i got soda  

  • this is traditional japanese hawaiian cream  soda and this is something that like a mikey  

  • like who's six years old that would order  your six-year-old kid would order this yeah  

  • well i am releasing the child in me today it's  pretty good well that's sweet wow it's so good  

  • this is like more strawberry than a strawberry  that's what it is why is it here more strawberry  

  • than strawberry because i give better better  review than yours because i've seen your food  

  • reviews oh just come on you just do it the rich  taste the dairy milk in the ice cream i couldn't  

  • even say that with the sweet decadent rich flavor  of the red bean and the alluring somewhat sticky

  • drink all the ice cream just melted down the side  of it you see i think eating shaped ice like tells  

  • your personality how how you eat it from the top  from the side to the bottom like i come inside

  • yeah why do you approach the ice cream from the  side i just i don't know it's high quality isn't  

  • it just to show that this i'm a really good person  kind generous how does he make this [ __ ] up  

  • here seriously this is like the number one the  number one japan travel show this is the sort of  

  • terrible awful presenting  that's dreadful wasn't it  

  • with ryotro having ruined dessert forever we head  back on over to the sensoji temple which at night  

  • looks absolutely stunning this is when  the streets of asakusa are at their best

  • as we saw earlier today the area around  the sensoji temple gets incredibly busy  

  • during the daytime but at night not only  is it more beautiful in my opinion because  

  • it's all illuminated but it's completely  accessible unlike a lot of parks and places  

  • around tokyo it's all open so pro tip come at  night and you can really kind of appreciate the  

  • temple and get a slice of it for yourself it's  a beautiful place and a beautiful view about to  

  • be ruined by ryotaro they did what about ruinwas enjoying the moment but but it's your first  

  • time um as well to come here in the evening ever  ever yeah in 500 years and i did not know that  

  • this place was all lit up and it's so beautiful  amazing i mean i used to come to asakusa quite  

  • a lot when i first moved to japan because when  you come to tokyo it's like the cheapest place to  

  • stay right so i used to come here quite a lot so  i know the area quite well but i've been here in  

  • a long time so it's quite nostalgic for me to be  here but it's raining like hell it's raining okay  

  • yeah i think it's time for onsen on sim yep yes we  need that yes it is let's go like i go in before

  • oh i've been looking forward to this all day the  public bath wow oh this is nice this is really oh  

  • oh dear welcome to japan what is your purpose  move is it business or pleasure disappointment

  • there was no way i was going to sit in this tiny  private bath with ryotaro so i've waited for him  

  • to get out and i've got it all to myself it's  really nice it's made of um hinoki wood so it's  

  • got this kind of suppose this fragrance of lemons  it's supposed to smell like but it's really strong  

  • timber and they use it on temples and things but  also baths because it doesn't rot easily so it's  

  • really good i think this is one of my first times  in tokyo where i've had a proper japanese bath  

  • kind of experience because they're quite rare and  difficult to find uh this is actually a private  

  • bath so if you come and stay at this your khan  you can kind of rent it out for like an hour or  

  • two i think it's free of charge but uh that's why  it's kind of small but it's got the most amazing  

  • view out the window over asakusa and you can  actually see the tokyo skytree towering overhead  

  • because it's a cloudy night it's got the string of  lights in the sky it looks like a ufo or something  

  • it's really kind of amazing but the sad truth  is because of the absence of tourists asakusa is  

  • quite quiet at the moment a lot of these hotels  restaurants bars have been almost empty you know  

  • this past year so i'm hoping when tourists get  back they're all gonna spring back to life because  

  • tonight realtor and i pretty much have this entire  nil khan to ourselves and uh well that's pretty  

  • cool it's also kind of sad you know there's  people's livelihoods here that are really at  

  • stake and they really depend on tourists in this  area so asakusa come here enjoy it enjoy the bath  

  • i don't know what that is but it's really  scaring me it looks like something out of  

  • super mario like they're one of those block  things is it out of super mario riot's nodding  

  • yes he's behind the camera and yes that's  ruined the mood waking up feeling refreshed  

  • after relaxing bath the night before we head  on down for a traditional japanese breakfast  

  • the quintessential japanese breakfast and  the quintessential i haven't woken up face  

  • what have we got here we are true well this is  nice what's this they're doing spinach with um  

  • sesame uh like sauce on top quite nicely byfish that looks like it's just been fished out  

  • of the pork yeah or the river yeah do you  know what it is he's our japanese expert  

  • it's a fish it's a fish it's a fish fantastic  we've got sweet potatoes steamed and some  

  • scrambled eggs i mean japanese breakfast isn't  everyone's cup of tea in the morning i would  

  • be lying if i said i enjoyed having this sort  of breakfast every morning but once in a while  

  • it's kind of nice it reminds me i'm in japan so  does your breakfast in the morning look something  

  • like this is it sort of traditional breakfast  with fish and rice or are we just talking  

  • frosties we're just talking corn flakes neither  just a toast right toast like toast with like  

  • cheese on top sometimes like you know when i have  money i know i know um traditions are changing and  

  • people are eating a lot more bread  in japan than they used to this  

  • kind of breakfast i mean this is kind of really  gorgeous but like just simpler version of this  

  • um used to be served at home as well when i was  living with my grandpa grandma but i'll finish  

  • up our breakfast and then we're going to check out  the temple and see what it's like in the morning  

  • just to show you how close you were to the  sensorji temple last night check this out  

  • to be honest i didn't even know  you're allowed to stay this centrally  

  • but the amazing accommodation tops off our 48  hours in asakusa we've explored tokyo's most  

  • famous shrine both in the day and the night  been to a cyberpunk underground street eating  

  • a truly dangerous amount of ice cream that's  allegedly more strawberry than strawberry and  

  • of course we've stayed at a beautiful traditional  inn ryota and i found this myokan and researched  

  • our trip through live japan the sponsor for  today's video and our trip to tokyo there are  

  • fantastic travel website where you can find hotels  restaurants and things to do across the country to
