  • Hey, I'm Joel.

  • Just an average American guy visiting Nikko, the heart of Japan.

  • On a quest to relive history, experience nature, taste the local food, but most importantly just have a good time.

  • Let's go!

  • We're here in Kanmangafuchi right now and you can see like all these cool 'jizos' along the way here.

  • Jizos and rivers, green... the spirits are with me right here man.

  • How to make Yuba and tofu.

  • When the soy milk comes to a boil, Yuba, a film, will form on the surface.

  • Scoop the Yuba and enjoy with the Yuba sauce.

  • Oh, that's so smooth.

  • Joel-san...

  • Joel-san....

  • Joel-san....

  • Okay, this thing is pretty sweet because it's carved from a tree with a katana.

  • I think it's pretty awesome.

  • This sword's got some bling on it.

  • Nanbokucho period, 14th century.

  • Kann pai!

  • That's good!

  • So this one won the award and I'm drinking it right here in the very place it was made.

  • Hand crafted, old-fashioned style, and it's delicious.

  • So there it was, my day in Nikko.

  • It's just a couple of hours by train from Tokyo and you can truly experience the more traditional side of Japan.

Hey, I'm Joel.
