  • Do you know what it is?

  • [Everyone] The last day of quarantine!

  • Last day of quarantine!

  • [Life in Japan Theme Song]

  • There are many reasons why people create content for YouTube, so why do we do it?

  • What do you want to do right when we're done?

  • Go to Kurazushi

  • I was just going to say that! Go to Kurazushi?

  • We started our trip with Kurazushi...

  • Go to Nintendo Land! Go to Nintendo Land?

  • Momma chan, what do we need to do?

  • Costco and Gyomu (Supermarket) Kurazushi!

  • Play Soccer with our friends! Oh yea, fun, fun!

  • What do you have, Joshua? Is this what you and mommy were working on?

  • Summer Vacation. Summer Vacation Book.

  • What did we do this time in the Summer Vacation?!

  • Um, I forgot a little bit. Forgot?! Where did we go?

  • Um, to America. To America, yes! Let's see your pictures.

  • Are they on there?

  • Oh! This is what we did, huh?

  • Perhaps one of the greatest cultural phenomenons of recent history is YouTube.

  • Creators can produce and publish content and then distribute it world-wide with only a phone and an internet connection.

  • Never before has the world been as connected as it is now.

  • If you have something interesting and worthwhile to share, then you have a good place to do it.

  • Tomorrow you go to school! How awesome is that?!

  • Amazing. Bye bye.

  • Do you know what today is?

  • Done, quarantine! Yes, the quarantine is done!

  • We can play soccer, finally! Finally.

  • Oh my, but it's a rainy day out today, isn't it?

  • Dude! Where are you going?!

  • To back to school! What? Tell me again

  • Back to school.

  • Back to school!? Oh yes, look!

  • The first of the Reutter kids to go back to school in person

  • Because Anna's here, doing it on her computer again. Can you turn on the light?

  • Oh yes, the light would be nice.

  • Tada!

  • Tada!

  • Have a good day! Say hi to Aiden and your friends and your teacher!

  • When you're a foreigner living abroad, you bring a different perspective.

  • It may seem weird to some, encouraging to others, but a new perspective can be a breath of fresh air.

  • Our first day out of quarantine means that we are going shopping, shopping, shopping!

  • How was school Joshua? Good.

  • Good? Did you have fun today? Yeah.

  • Hey, you're home, you can take off your mask if you want.

  • Ah! It's sweating [hot] outside.

  • Yeah!

  • We are off on our first adventure back in Japan! We're free from quarantine.

  • Anna, are you so excited to be free again?

  • We can go out, we can play at parks, we can... Do this!

  • I think we can cross right here, can't we?

  • Well it sure looks like it, whoa!

  • I feel right back at home now.

  • The life we live as foreigners in Japan is anything but normal, and it's certainly very challenging.

  • But more often than not, it makes for interesting content.

  • I hope we're going the right way...

  • This is cool, even if it's not the right way.

  • The Eisenmann's are taking us on an adventure to a park near us that we've never actually been to

  • Yep- I knew it. Oh, it's the Eisenmanns, yes, long time no see!

  • Happy birthday! Whoa!

  • KK - my goodness! You're huge!

  • What did you find? Whoa! You're rich!

  • Yeah, really.

  • The Eisenmanns are good friends of our, and one of their 5 boys is having a birthday.

  • Hey birthday boy, how old are you? 5?!

  • Just like Joshua, awesome! I have a finger on my... a bandaid on my finger.

  • Are you 4 or 5? I'm 4!

  • Alright everybody, let's get started!

  • But what YouTube can't show is what life is really like when the camera is turned off and no one is watching.

  • YouTube, like anything else online, only shows what the creator wants you to see.

  • But a life worth living is one that's built on more than just appearances.

  • That's what I'm talking about, he wants to light his own candlewith some help.

  • [Everyone singing "Happy Birthday"]

  • We're not here to show off a great life, or to try to appear like someone we're not,

  • and we're not here to make a living off of YouTube, even though the extra income is nice.

  • We're here to share our life and joy with you, and YouTube lets us do just that.

  • Let's eat cake!

  • That's some pretty bamboo.

  • There's no water coming through it, so you have to move it by hand, huh? I'm missing a kid.

  • Oh uh.

  • This is like the original playground. This is, man.

  • Like the first one ever built.

  • Here comes Sarah!

  • What did you find Joshua?

  • A worm! Oh my goodness! Look at that worm.

  • So right here, this park is awesome, do you know why?

  • Look right herethis is real grass in Japan. Oh it's lovely!

  • It's — oh! And there's a real Antony too.

  • The reason why we YouTube and the reason our team runs a coffee shop and a church are one and the same.

  • What's up Ben san?!

  • Gettin' it! Gettin' it? You all ready for this?!

  • Learning to get ready for it. Livestream control, here we go.

  • So we're back at Paz Coffee ShopYes! It's good to be back!

  • And we're setting up for the livestream that Paz Church has every Sunday.

  • John, that looks like a great camera angle there!

  • Ben's on those lights. Hello!

  • Alright, we've got our studio setup

  • On screen they're right next to each other, but in real life?

  • 6 meters baby. Oh oh oh

  • We're getting all tested, everything's all ready to go

  • Paz Church here, real soon!

  • Powerful testimony today with Miwa. She's sharing the message, and it's so good! Check out Paz Church.

  • (Singing) This is glowing in the dark!

  • Oh my goodness! Are you playing basketball? Yeah.

  • You try, you try. OK, ready?

  • Oh, my hand is on fire, ah!!

  • Bam! Slam dunk! Awesome!

  • I'm going to do a slam-dunk here. OK, you do a slam-dunk.

  • Awesome!!

  • We love building bridges between people and cultures, and so we value learning Japanese and having our kids learn it as well.

  • That's why they're enrolled in Japanese school.

  • Whoa Daddy, you scared me. I thought you were Becca.

  • Definitely not Becca. Yea, you're Daddy.

  • Are you ready for your first official day back to school?

  • Yea, but not my homework. Oh, not your homework? Your homework's not ready?!

  • I still have this... Ah!

  • OK? Whew! Anna!

  • We're loaded up!

  • Well hey Sarah! We ready to load up your bags? Yeah.

  • Are you ready for your first day back to school? Yea.

  • Awesome! Wow, it seems like forever since you actually went to school, huh? Yeah.

  • No, this is really light. And this. What about that?

  • It's so light.

  • Bye Anna Banana! Bye Mommy chan!

  • Love you! Have fun! God bless you!

  • We want to be a bridge, a connection between our family and yours, our life and yours.

  • A spark to light your heart with the love.

  • Wow- look at the girls! It's our first day back to school in person.

  • They've been online for a couple of weeks but now, everything is loaded up for them to go in person.

  • And Big J, you're already for school, huh? This is my 3rd time.

  • Your 3rd day going back!

  • This is the girl's first day, but you've already gone back for 3 days.

  • Oh, I'm so happy to go back.

  • Oh, well that's so good, I'm glad.

  • Because there's Aiden at school.

  • Oh, there's Aiden at school, yeah!

  • Bye guys! Bye!

  • This is the first time since we left for the States that I am home by myself!

  • And now I finally get to work and do kind-of-like a normal work day. This is actually very exciting.

  • Sarah, I was just coming to meet you and you're already here!

  • How was your first day back to school? Good!

  • Good! How's your backpack? Is it super heavy? Heavy.

  • Oh, was it fun to see your friends again? Yeah.

  • Yeah, cool, ok! When I was walking home I saw a lizard.

  • You saw a lizard on the way home? That's cool.

  • Guess who's here visiting us? Who?

  • Joey! Alright, let's go!

  • Sarah! Welcome home!

  • There's Joey! Hi Joey!

  • Here comes the girls now. How was it? How was the day back?

  • Fine. Fine? Saw your friends again?

  • Yeah. OK, good.

  • Good to be home? Yes.

  • Are your backpacks super heavy?

  • Yes. We need to break that spider web.

  • Oh, do it! No, you do it.

  • Me?!

  • Becca- you got epic amounts of homework today, huh?

  • I came homehomework all day already.

  • No playing outside, no TV... [gasps]

  • Let's go have dinner at least, OK?

  • Dinnertime! Bye bye homework!

  • Anna did you have a bunch of homework today too?

  • She has to finish her report on nurses.

  • On nurses!?

  • What's one of the best things you can do for a YouTuber that you like?

  • Make sure you subscribe to their channel and click the notification bell.

  • That's not just for us — that's for you too,

  • so that when new videos come out, you see them, like the video that is coming out next week

  • You're not going to want to miss it.

  • We're heading north to Tochigi prefecture to do 3 nights of camping and see the sights,

  • but a fluke accident completely changes our plans and has us testing instead the Japanese emergency services.

Do you know what it is?
