  • Hey guys, good morning and welcome to... I don't know where we are, Kawasaki..

  • Is this city? CHRIS: Uh.. yes. SHARLA: Town? I think it's Kawasaki-machi. CHRIS: Kawasaki.

  • We are on another Poke-lid hunt today.

  • I've got my friends Chris and Victor helping me out and we've started here..

  • ..somewhere in the middle of Miyagi prefecture for our first stop and..

  • ..we're gonna see how many we can find today in all of Miyagi prefecture.

  • We've got like 31 left to go [CHRIS makes noise of disbelief] and I think we might be able to do...

  • ..15 today, if we hurry! So let's go find the first one!

  • So the map brought us to this...center.

  • SHARLA: I don't even know what they do here. (CHRIS: What a lovely looking building!) SHARLA: It's some kind of like city center.

  • I think that's the manhole there. Yeaah! CHRIS: Aah. VICTOR: That is correct.

  • SHARLA: Lapra's special. CHRIS: Oh, I love Lapras. It's one of the Pokémon I actually know.

  • SHARLA: Alrights let's get a picture of this and then I'm still collecting the stamps as well.

  • Oh, it's right here! It's outside.

  • Victor, you should get a little book and you can collect the stamps.

  • VICTOR: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, definitely.

  • SHARLA: So they make a stamp of each of the manholes in Miyagi.

  • It's so sad because this is going away after a month it feels like such a waste of these cute little stamps.

  • CRHIS GASPS // SHARLA GIGGLES // CHRIS IN DEEP VOICE: Amazing!

  • SHARLA: Stop sounding so excited (?)

  • CHRIS STILL IN DEEP VOICE: Gotta catch 'em all! .. Pokémon!

  • SHARLA STILL GIGGLING: Go away :p

  • One stamp down, lot's to go.

  • Let's go.

  • VICTOR: Let's go.

  • SHARLA: So this is our route for today.

  • We're going to start here in the middle of Miyagi prefecture.

  • Work our way down to the bottom and end in Matsushima.

  • Hopefully if we have enough time.

  • All right, stamp number two has brought us to Zaō which I've been to lot's.

  • It's so pretty right now with the snow on the mountains aaand...

  • There's a shrine here but..

  • But it's so icy and slippery. I don't know if I want to be climbing the mountain to see the shrine.

  • Kaminoyu. It's a little onsen here.

  • They have a footbath here but no hot water in it.

  • VICTOR: The remains of it.

  • So sad!

  • These are really nice in the winter. I'm surprised they don't have it going.

  • Onagyo (?, the name of the place). So this is where... Oh yeah, here's the stamp.

  • Yaay(!)

  • Now the hunt for the actual manhole.

  • It should be around here somewhere.

  • The GPS pointed to right about here.

  • Might be buried under snow.

  • Seems to be a common pattern.

  • Victor found it! Yay!

  • VICTOR: Yah!

  • Good fun.

  • SHARLA: Woehooew!

  • Number two of the day. We're making good time.

  • I'm gonna take a peek at that little shrine that was up here.

  • The cool thing about this stamp rally is that it takes you to places that you normally wouldn't go.

  • I'v been to Zao many times but I've never been to this part of the town.

  • It's nice.

  • It's too bad the footbath wasn't going.

  • Yeah, looks like there's a little shrine down there. I'm not going to..

  • ..head all the way in because we have lots of places to vist today.

  • And a very tight time schedule.

  • You can see the steam coming up from under the street.

  • Zao is an onsen town so there's lots of natural hotspring water running underneath us.

  • CHRIS: Next is very remote. It's a town.. (SHARLA: sixteen) ..that I don't know how to read. What's that?

  • SHARLA: Chikahara?

  • CHRIS: Maybe, yeah, yeah, yeah. And it's quite far. (music starts) Let's go.

  • SHARLA: So this is, um, a Michi no Eki. CHRIS: Is that up there? SHARLA: Yeah, which could be cool.

  • Yeah I think that's around here.

  • wait is it open

  • so deserted

  • i really hope the manhole is close to

  • the stamp area because i don't really

  • want to go exploring this area it's just

  • lots of snow

  • and mountains you see it oh yeah yay

  • victor's good at spotting them

  • [Music]

  • so the next manhole hunt has brought us

  • to a castle

  • in shiroishi apparently the stamp is

  • inside a museum which we've yet to

  • locate we found the castle though looks

  • really nice in the snow found it and i

  • also found these stamps for my other

  • stamp collection

  • the manhole itself is within the park

  • somewhere but the park's quite big so i

  • looked it up on twitter oh that's it

  • right there

  • and i found a picture of it right beside

  • the castle, so I knew it was by the castle

  • somewhere

  • this is a cute one

  • i'd say this has been the coolest

  • location that it's brought us to

  • so far discovered a new castle that i

  • didn't know existed and here's another

  • manhole

  • not pokemon related

  • all right our next stop is at another

  • michi nowaki so we're on the highway for

  • the next 20 minutes or so and i think

  • there's three okay lids in that area so

  • Poke's lid, is that what it's called?

  • Yeah, Poke lid. Pokefuta in Japanese.

  • It sounds better in Japanese

  • but after that we'll have a seven done

  • so

  • i think we're making good time it's

  • It's currently 1:45 pm. Since some of these stamps are inside of tourist centers and stuff...

  • .. I have a feeling they're gonna close around five, so...

  • ..hopefully we can get a few more after that.

  • CHRIS: What'd you find? SHARLA: Just the regular michiyoaki(?) stuff.

  • SHARLA: Nice. CHRIS: Such force!

  • CHRIS: Meanwhile, Victor has found it. VICTOR: Too slow, too slow :p

  • Oh, that one's cute. There's a little sign here that tells you where the manhole is.

  • That's awesome. So it's right beside the... overpass!

  • The little bridge. I think I know where that is.

  • There's the overpass so it should be over there somewhere.

  • Should be up here.

  • VICTOR: Oh, there it is. CHRIS: Oh, already it's found.

  • SHARLA: Oh, what the hell. CHRIS: You walked just straight past it for the third time.

  • SHARLA: Yes, look at them. CHRIS: It's lickitung!

  • SHARLA: Nice, that's five, I think. CHRIS: Yaaaaay. Only 400 more to goooo, YEAAAH.

  • SHARLA: We found the next stamp! But we haven't found the manhole.

  • We kinda went over the parking lot and didn't see it..

  • ..though we have a track record of just walking right past them. So who knows?

  • Nice!

  • So apparently this is the right location for the manhole but we can't find it.

  • Watch it just be under one of these cars in the parking lot. VICTOR: Oh, god...

  • Usually it's in front of the shop.

  • I thought maybe it would be over here infront of the shrine.

  • front of the shrine

  • hmm nope

  • nothing here either

  • victor's checking up there turns out the

  • manhole is nowhere near where we are

  • it's all the way over here at the

  • station

  • so i'll try to be my next but i got

  • strawberries so it was worth coming here

  • they cropped it

  • [Music]

  • cool it's a cute one so this area is

  • famous for sakura which is why they put

  • the sakura themed pokemon here

  • look at this

  • why didn't we come in the spring

  • why are we here in the winter

  • it looks great

  • maybe a walkway along beside it you take

  • this little like yeah

  • that's really cool rope car

  • it's awesome yeah look at

  • all these sakura lining the entire

  • river here

  • definitely have to come back so the next

  • manhole location actually brought us to

  • the area that has that rope car that we

  • were looking at on the sign

  • so it's up on a hill uh that has the

  • ruins of a castle

  • and yeah in the spring you can take a

  • rope car through the cherry blossoms

  • i will definitely have to come back here

  • and do that it looks really nice in the

  • spring we will do that it's not too far

  • from Sendai all right let's head inside

  • and get our stamp and then we'll search

  • for the manhole which we haven't seen

  • yet

  • [Music]

  • even the staff didn't know where the

  • manhole was

  • i think the larger map that i have

  • actually gives you the precise location

  • of each one so i'm gonna check that

  • oka ekimai
