  • j banana it's like the new

  • this is ushka's newest cat

  • pixel

  • hi you're getting big do you smell maro

  • you're silly you're silly

  • you're silly

  • so ushka runs an airbnb and one of her

  • guests left us it's actually really cool

  • it's a little mochi

  • that's really satisfying that's fun

  • [Sharla] That's fun! I haven't seen that one.

  • Why is it gray?

  • Why couldn't I make it white like mochi?

  • Alright, so let me show you guys

  • How we sort out all the things that we put inside the packages.

  • So we do a stationary subscription service every month

  • And we theme the packages around the current holiday or season.

  • So our next packages are going to be arriving just before New Year's so they will be New Year's themed.

  • So in Japan that means it's year of the tiger so

  • We've got lots of really cute tiger themed items going into this month's pack.

  • These are really fun stickers that you scratch off and they give you your fortune for the year.

  • And then here we have some nengajyou.

  • These are New Year's greeting cards.

  • It's a custom to give these to all of your acquaintances and people you work with

  • And your friends and your family here in Japan.

  • I don't do it because it's a huge pain in the ass.

  • And I feel like once you start you just have to keep doing it every year.

  • And umyeah… I've just never gotten into it.

  • I do give one of my friends just for fun but not like the serious way.

  • And then one of the big items this month, we have some really cute 2022 greeting cards

  • That you can either give to somebody or just display it on your desk because they're adorable.

  • I love that one.

  • So we organize everything like this and then we take the biggest item which will probably be the journals.

  • We usually do 10 or 20 at the time depending on how many we can fit on the table.

  • It's a nice size so you can probably fit 20 this month.

  • [Music]

  • [Music]

  • so when we're done they look something

  • like this we've got 15 packs all ready

  • to go and we first wrap them up in our

  • personalized

  • paper bags that were designed for us by

  • Erica Ward she's a local artist she's

  • amazing

  • she does lots of art work for us

  • that's Maro

  • that is pippin who you haven't seen

  • today yet

  • we'll have to incorporate pixel on here

  • somewhere next time

  • and our logo in the corner but these are

  • great for

  • holding all the items together and we

  • wrap them up in this and then

  • put a cute little sticker on it

  • Tada!! We try and get different stamps every

  • month. Ushko went to the stamp museum and

  • got these really cool vintage stamps. Oh

  • cute the cat one

  • that's adorable

  • yeah so that's what we'll be doing for

  • the next couple hours and then when

  • we're finished we're gonna head out to

  • my favorite bar here in shibuya because

  • ushka has never been even though she

  • lives in shibuya we're going to order

  • some drinks you guys have been there

  • before if you've been with me for a few

  • years if you're new here then it'll be

  • your first time too so should be fun i

  • ordered a bootable for dinner just gonna

  • have a bit of this before we go out to

  • the bar probably a good idea

  • oh looks nice

  • hummus

  • did you find your snacks

  • did you find them i brought you snacks

  • you wanna try

  • Snack time, there you go

  • I like how she shakes it, like it's alive

  • heading to the bar now it's so much fun

  • you guys are gonna love it

  • 5206. it's only open for three hours in

  • the evening from six until nine pm so

  • you gotta get there early

  • [Music]

  • [Music]

  • [Music]

  • it's pretty busy tonight i haven't been

  • out in tokyo at night time

  • in

  • like two years

  • so

  • this is weird

  • yeah that's it yeah there it is

  • so it's called The Whales of August

  • and it's the best bar ever

  • oh what does it say nikai e dozo

  • so usually it's downstairs but it says

  • downstairs is oyasumi today

  • and to go upstairs

  • so how this bar works is you have to

  • tell them which movie you want your

  • cocktail themed on and

  • there is a list on the menu of movies

  • but you can tell them anything and they

  • will make you a cocktail based off of

  • that movie i usually pick fun things

  • like totoro or

  • like children's movies because then it
