  • Hello World! Where I'm from in Japan, this is what Hakone is like.

  • So this is the obento we eat at that train.

  • And you can see what you want to buy.

  • You can get karaage, and you can get onigiri,

  • and you can get one in a Shinkansen.

  • Do you know what kind of train this is?

  • This is a "Romance Car."

  • "Romance Car"... Oh...so it's romantic in there?

  • I don't think it's romantic, but it's just called "Romance Car."

  • Ah.

  • Oh, look at that!

  • Itadakimasu!

  • What did you think of the train ride?

  • It was good.

  • I saw lots of farms, and Fuji-san, and lots of mountains,

  • and it was very cool.

  • Yeah, everybody loves taking pictures of Fuji-san.

  • You think that's normal, or do you think people made that?

  • I think they put rocks and put big rocks together and they made it.

  • I thought most of the walk was very beautiful,

  • but I was a bit surprised by all the pipes you could see.

  • What is this place called?

  • "Hien no Taki."

  • Well, this is actually a famous waterfall, or something.

  • Did you wanna go into the water?

  • Yeah, but it looks so cold.

  • You're feeding goldfish.

  • Kingyo, right?

  • There's Koi, and Kingyo

  • and Kingyo, even if it's an adult, it's still kind of small.

  • Oh I see.

  • So they look like big goldfish, but they're actually Koi?

  • Yeah.

  • So this is the valley we went to

  • and it's snuggled in between the mountains.

  • What did you think of it, Aiko?

  • Lots of fields, and there are lots of nature,

  • and they're so beautiful.

  • What did you think about this type of train?

  • Well, it's kinda different

  • from the usual ones that we go on,

  • and it looked kind of old.

  • Haha, yeah.

  • I think it looked old, because it was old.

  • Oh.

  • And, how many tunnels did we go through?

  • Do you remember?

  • Well, it's a lo-o-ot of tunnels.

  • Why was this steaming?

  • Because it was Onsen water.

  • This is the room we slept in.

  • When we went there, it had snacks waiting for us.

  • I really loved the view.

  • Yup.

  • Oh, wow! Look at all this food!

  • I liked the soup. It was so yummy!

  • I like trading some of the food I don't like to other people so they can give me food that I do like.

  • Ha, ha, ha!

  • I think I'd rather have the kid's meal, honestly.

  • Yeah. I wanted adult's meal.

  • Really?

  • Yeah.

  • Oh. We totally should have just switched dishes, then.

  • Yeah, ha, ha!

  • Oh. I really liked this. It was kind of raining/sunny at the same time.

  • Oh, and here is breakfast.

  • Wow! There are just so many dishes!

  • Yup.

  • Can you actually eat all the dishes?

  • I don't know if I can eat it all by myself.

  • Well, did you?

  • Well... no.

  • You had to cook your own food?

  • Yup.

  • How was the ofuro, Shin?

  • Good!

  • Good!

  • We are going to go into a private family bath.

  • Shin. So, what are those baskets for, Shin-chan?

  • For your clothes!!!

  • OK. Put your clothes in.

  • Shin. Shin. Don't put yourself in there.

  • No. It's not for the entire you!

  • It is!

  • Shin.

  • It is!

  • Ugh!

  • So we put the bath- our clothes in the basket, so we didn't go to the ofuro.

  • All right.

  • Aaaaah!

  • Don't show us.

  • Here we go! Come on in!

  • I will wash my body and go there.

  • And we have body soap, conditioner and shampoo.

  • So, cut that. We need to wash.

  • The best thing about doing an onsen with your son is he can scrape your back for you!

  • This is real hot spring water, so it kind of smells like rotten eggs.

  • How does it feel, Shin-chan?

  • Good.

  • Good.

  • Good.

  • And poor Shin-chan has bug bites all over his face, because mosquitoes got into our room last night.

  • You can't jump in the onsen.

  • We can't put the towel in the onsen.

  • We can't swim in the onsen.

  • Bad! Ba-a-ad!

  • So this is a private onsen, so that's why we're allowed to film in here,

  • and we also didn't use the towels before we put them in the onsen,

  • because you don't wanna do that, because you get soap on the towels and it gets dirty,

  • but we never did that, so it was fine that we put the towels in the onsen,

  • just for showing you what not to do.

  • Do you know what this is called?

  • I think is kind of motorail.

  • Motorail? I don't know. Mountainrail?

  • I really don't know. I'll look it up and then I might put it on the screen after.

  • But it climbs up the mountain, right?

  • Yup.

  • The roof from the top of the mountain is pulling this train up.

  • I thought it was a pretty ride.

  • Yup.

  • Yup. Yup. Yup. Yup. Yup. Yup. Yup.

  • Oh. There. That's the pulley.

  • Oooh!

  • Oh, it's steaming!

  • Yeah. It looks like it's broken.

  • Hey, Aiko, what is that?

  • Orange cola.

  • Well, it doesn't taste bad.

  • Ha, ha, ha! It doesn't mean it tastes good either.

  • This reminds me of Whistler, back in Canada.

  • Oh! Yeah!

  • Right? Peak gondola?

  • Yup.

  • Look! Pirate ships.

  • Well, they're not actual pirates.

  • What are you doing to him?

  • No!

  • What are you doing to him?

  • Daddy!

  • Don't steal my captain!

  • No, no.

  • He's my captain!

  • Come back here!

  • That's my captain!

  • Well, is this a big swan?

  • Yeah. Giant swans.

  • Bam! Bam!

  • What did you think of this boat ride?

  • Well, I didn't see any fish and it just looked like a big pool.

  • Well, that's pretty much what a lake is.

  • Well, yeah.

  • This is were we ate.

  • Yeah. I thought it was pretty good for a restaurant that's just like a tourist type of restaurant.

  • Yeah. It was so... beautiful.

  • Mm-hm.

  • What kind of shop is this, Aiko?

  • This is a gift shop.

  • And what kind of stuff can you buy?

  • You can buy Hakune's famous food and stuff.

  • Do you have to buy gifts for people?

  • No, but I'll buy gifts.

  • A few hundred years ago, when people were traveling, they had to stop here. But this is not the real place.

  • Well, this was actually the real place. Yeah. It was.

  • They rebuilt it. So this is not... It wasn't like new like this,

  • but it really did exist in that exact spot.

  • When people traveled, they had to go through this check point.

  • She is mad, and then she is sad.

  • So a big reason they were inspecting people was because they wanted to prevent the wives and children of the lords from leaving Tokyo.

  • Those lords would not disobey the shogun, because their families would be in danger if they did.

  • You need to go to jail.

  • Aiko, you go in there too because you're bad.

  • "Prison."

  • No...! Help... me!

  • Can I go out now?

  • Fine.

  • Hey, what did you think about this toilet?
