  • Hello everybody welcome.

  • This is a live view of Haneda airport at 6 45 in the morning.

  • I'm not joking.

  • This is before seven a.m. There's the clock right there.

  • In fact, I've got to get in and board my flight to Chicago.

  • Takamatsu is my destination today for a location shoot, but it wasn't too long ago, about a year ago that during the bone holiday, the oboe on holiday, there wasn't, there weren't many people at all traveling and now look at it.

  • It is, it seems like domestic travel in.

  • Japan is back.

  • This is the automatic baggage check in which is amazing.

  • You can check in online for a and a, you go right up here.

  • You, you show your bar code on the screen, you put your baggage in this like Star Wars type of, I don't know what you call a capsule and your luggage goes on the, on the rack and to your airplane, you don't have to talk to anybody.

  • It's amazing.

  • Really quick.

  • I always get to the gate in 10 minutes or less from here.

  • How you doing everybody?

  • I'm off to Chicago for another location shoot.

  • I think I just got back from Hokkaido.

  • It's pretty crazy.

  • But I thought I would just check in with you and show you how amazingly busy Japan is.

  • The shinkansen platforms have been busier.

  • It's not the same as 2019, but it certainly is.

  • Um, a lot busier than the last two years.

  • This is all really good signs For those of you that have been looking to come back to Japan and to travel here for years.

  • A lot of you, I read your comments, we had about 800 comments on the live stream where I was talking about only 8000 foreign tourists came to Japan between June and July after Japan opened the doors were seeing domestically travel is back.

  • The pandemic or coronavirus isn't stopping the domestic people from flying despite the worst infection rate in the world right now is here in Japan.

  • Um, so I'm guessing again my prediction is, this is all over and people can visit again in october.

  • Anything can happen though.

  • Um, it's a whirlwind, Who knows?

  • But the problem is that for you as a tourist, it's just too difficult to plan your trip right now.

  • So I mean, I think nobody, apparently, nobody wants to take a tour out of the 800 people who commented, I don't think there was one person who said I wanted to take a tour.

  • Most westerners are, especially Westerners are independent travelers and they don't want to be chaperoned or quote unquote babysat.

  • Here we are on the floor of the airport.

  • I'm gonna go into the, I'm gonna go in and start getting boarding my flight.

  • I took the monorail here, I've been taking taxis over the last two years and I still had to fly, but this time I took the monorail and it was, it was pretty safe.

  • Everybody wears a mask.

  • Nobody was coughing.

  • I feel a lot more safer because a lot safer because people are adhering to the protocols and doing their very best and it is always a risk.

  • But that should never stop you from following your dreams.

  • Which is for me only in Japan and covering amazing stories and I got two good ones and I'm filming over the next four days and then I'm taking a break from travel and I'm just going to edit the crap out of them literally before I go in, I just wanted to show you these vending machines are still here.

  • These are the Prefectural local vending machines with goods from all across Japan gifts that you can get domestic Terminal two.

  • But I'm, I'm guessing that they're in other terminals.

  • These are the strawberries from a certain region of Fukuoka.

  • Fukuoka is famous for the strawberries.

  • So they have their kitkat flavored strawberries, you can get a human doll right here.

  • Look at them, can even breathe in that 900 yen.

  • You can get ramon.

  • Um, Ramen wow, is it a ramen or a bag?

  • I think it's a bag.

  • I like this.

  • So just city has curry rice from different curry places in the town.

  • I guess this is toy Rama, which is a beautiful prefecture.

  • I'm looking forward to getting back there on the sea of Japan side and they have some really nice confections as well.

  • But one of my favorites.

  • Here's the Fukushima one with the masks in there.

  • Look at that.

  • It's like culture in a vending machine.

  • I love this.

  • Here's Yamagata.

  • They've got melons in there.

  • But one of my favorites is the Akita dog because you can get yourself an Akita dog for only 1500 yen right here with a tuxedo.

  • That's awesome.

  • All right.

  • Look that man is doing an exact posture as the emoji.

  • Did you see that?

  • He's doing the exact same posture.
