  • It's super nice.

  • It's just a nice little bit of a car in the middle of the city.

  • Right.

  • What I love about these town houses, they have these like just tucked away and concealed.

  • That transparent floor is both amazing and slightly scary.

  • I don't know if I want to stand on, can it take the weight of 86 kg British guy?

  • Probably not.

  • The fact is like creaking that much.

  • Yeah, look at this.

  • This is like a film set.

  • I don't even know where to look at this.

  • Welcome to chris's kitchen.

  • If I was gonna have a kitchen show, this is what it would be.

  • But the food would be nice if we like a half cooked salmon and some salmonella and chips.

  • This is beautiful.

  • I love japanese style but got all the modern, modern, but also traditional every time you hear about it's like a traditional city, but also there needs to be like a new word trodden.

  • Traditional what's through this door here.

  • It looks like someone's going to town on this wall with a knife.

  • Yes, it's my favorite when they open up and they're like, no.

  • Yeah, that's all mine.

  • Can I sleep here?

  • Chris, no, it's too good for you.

  • It's very nice.

  • It is a really beautifully kind of renovated house though.

  • I'm all for these match here.

  • Unfortunately Kyoto townhouses are dying out just because they're not overly convenient to live in.

  • People in Kyoto.

  • Don't really like to live in match here.

  • So if you do come to Kyoto, don't stay in a generic hotel.

  • Like toki dory traveler, stay in a match here, keep them alive, keep them going.

  • If you got the budget, the budget out by pricing.

  • I think this place was 50,000 is what $400.

  • It's quite pricey.

  • I'm not paying for it.

  • Yeah, but money.

  • Well spent.

  • Beautiful place.

  • You come to Kyoto stay here.

  • Stay one of these places.

  • What I love about these traditional Kyoto townhouse is you never know what you might find tucked behind each and every door.

  • It's a snack box.

  • Today's video is sponsored by Sakura Co, which is a monthly subscription box where you can get a traditional japanese snacks and they partner with local artisanal snack makers and get all the good stuff inside And this month they've partnered with the local government to celebrate the ski me moon viewing festival in september.

  • So let's dive in and take a look and have some tea as well.

  • Hey, you're in charge of the tea.

  • I'm in charge of eating the snacks so many colors.

  • I'm always amazed with these boxes how much they can fit in.

  • They are very good at defying the laws of physics as much in as they possibly can look at this.

  • So this month's box is themed like skinny, the moon viewing festival and there's a few things that go along with that.

  • You get a lot of theme of the full moon or you can also get a lot of rabbits.

  • Speaking of rabbits there we go with the moon with the moon because in Western society we see like a man on the moon, but for japanese, it's like a rabbit.

  • People have different eyes also in this box because it's from kyoto as well.

  • There's a lot of different Kyoto snacks.

  • So like, yeah, you guys know about that.

  • Some very traditional kyoto vibes and flavors.

  • Lots of green tea stuff as well.

  • We also have this roasted green tea, which is my favorite hot.

  • It's hot decadent candies exceptional.

  • This is so good.

  • I do like, I do like the traditional kind of sweets, right, artisanal stuff they have in there.

  • This isn't stuff you can buy anywhere, right specialist items.

  • So it's kind of like a hot sunny day, needs something sweet and sugary that after that.

  • But I'm having some, which is very crunchy.

  • Got your teeth.

  • I've got this kyoto horti chart pudding as well with the aforementioned rabbit.

  • You were actually so good.

  • It's like cinnamon flavored and it's just like a really like crunchy biscuit.

  • How's your pudding?

  • Very refreshing, refreshing, flavorful.

  • Wonderful.

  • Yes.

  • But also just standing in a townhouse eating a box of sweets, Living the dream.

  • This is what you achieved all about.

  • This is what should be the only every video was this good.

  • But also it is nice to have a little bit of like a bit of a more savory tea along with some sweets.

  • It's nice, very nice.

  • Also in the box, you get a little booklet beautifully made telling you about all the sweets with allergy information if you have allergies, but it's not really nice hearing the story of each and every kind of sweet where they come from the story behind it.

  • Probably one of my favorite things about, but you can check them out in the link in the description box below and get $5 off your first box with the code.

  • Tokyo Creative do it, but it is not enough for you and you want just a little bit more.

  • There is also the Tokyo treat box.

  • This month's theme for Tokyo treat is also skinny and Tokyo treat is full of different kinds of japanese snacks that are more modern and check it out.

  • I've made short work of this candy box chris, stop eating, going to a restaurant.

  • Oh my goodness!

  • So we have come to an area called which is a nice little alleyway next to the river and there's lots of restaurants along the way and they get this beautiful little river dining experience.

  • Yeah, I mean Kyoto is extremely hot and humid in summer.

  • They call, this literally means river dot for me is like raised platform floor, raised just over the river.

  • And they say that river is like the coolest place in the city.
