  • Baby B. We don't do Baby B we do BIG B!

  • Baby B?! Big B? What are we talking about?

  • 1,35!

  • - Uh... possibly that!? - Yeah!

  • I was like "Oh noooo!"

  • You get very cozy with strangers.

  • Hey guys and girls this is Cathy Cat and today we are gonna ask foreigners

  • who have come to Japan what thing they have seen

  • the VERY VERY first time when they've come to Japan.

  • Something completely new to them.

  • Let's go and ask foreigners in Japan.

  • Cat cafes!

  • What do you think about those?

  • They're interesting. But I like them.

  • Did you go to one?

  • - Not yet. - Would you like to? - Yes.

  • What do you imagine it will be like?

  • I don't know I feel like I can make some friends there with the cats.

  • Cat cafes, Owl cafes, bunny cafes, snake cafes...

  • It's nice to be actually somewhere where there are manners

  • and cuing and things like that, because we have been in China for a while.

  • It's just crazy here isn't it. Like frozen popcorn we saw today. It was nice.

  • With the cat cafes, have you been to one yet?

  • We went to the cat cafe, that was good.

  • That was lovely.

  • We have seen a rabbit cafe and an owl cafe.

  • - We haven't been in. - Snake cafe.

  • Would you like to try and go to a snake cafe?

  • I don't fancy it myself.

  • Well, I'd be alright with it.

  • We don't have this many vending machines.

  • Vending machines are EVERYWHERE!

  • Where are the cool cans of...

  • The Bee!

  • Baby B. In Australia we don't do Baby B we do BIG B!

  • Baby B?! Big B? What are we talking about?

  • We don't have this small can.

  • Oh right.

  • Like the mini mini sizes.

  • Where did you find that cause I have only seen that...

  • Why have I not seen this, I live here!

  • 1,35!

  • It's like tiny.

  • It's a waste of time really. You need at least four of them.

  • Like a mini shot.

  • It's like a beer shot.

  • Why do you think there is a tiny beer size here in Japan?

  • Maybe because Japanese people are tiny they have tiny little drinks.

  • Just a tiny bit of beer today.

  • They probably can't drink as much as Australians.

  • How many of those little ones would you need for a good time?

  • 20 minimum so we will start at 20.

  • You mentioned the vending machines earlier.

  • What were you surprised about them?

  • Having the combination of the cold and hot stuff.

  • Also, underage drinking, how does ...

  • how do you control who buys the beer from the vending machines?

  • I think there is no beer in the vending machines...?

  • I might be wrong. Is there beer in the vending machines sometimes?

  • - Yeah. - Oh right (clearly doesn't drink beer)

  • That's a very good question. What do you think?

  • I don't know. I have no idea. In Australia underage kids would be into that.

  • Really weird vending machines.

  • Hot drinks, coffe and such in cans.

  • You don't see that sort of stuff our way.

  • Things from vending machines you wouldn't expect to be.

  • Or ordering Ramen through basically a vending machine.

  • Pushing a button and getting a ticket.

  • and then presenting it to your server is really unusual.

  • The ramen tickets. What confused you about that?

  • They are not in English so we are trying to match characters from pictures

  • - Uhm... possibly that?! - Yes.

  • Heated toilet seats. We had an accident with the toilets.

  • It shot water from the toilet up in the air and soaked us.

  • You go in and there is a waterfall in there.

  • Did you push the wrong button?

  • It sprayed the roof of the hotel and it was just everywhere.

  • How did you get it to stop?

  • - I don't know, what did we do? - I went in.

  • - I went in and turned it off. - And then cleaned up all the water.

  • I would say the toilets.

  • The warm toilet seats. I love those.

  • - What did you think when you saw them the first time? -I love them.

  • I love how warm they are and the detail. The attention to hygiene.

  • Keeping everything clean. Love that.

  • Everything, with all the advertisements and such.

  • All the lights. That's very big and I have never experienced that.

  • The toilets are very different as well.

  • I have never used a bidet before.

  • You mentioned the toilets, what surprised you about them?

  • The fact that a lot of them are in the ground and

  • for squatting and stuff.

  • It's good though. It's better to squad when you go to the bathroom.

  • It helps your body push it out easier.

  • I think we can learn a thing in Canada from that.

  • The cleanliness of the bidets!

  • It's great to get everything washed away properly.

  • - And the heated seats. - Oh yeah that's the best!

  • I love that and the fact that in a lot of the public ones

  • there is a privacy setting that mimics a water sound.

  • So people don't hear you doing your business.

  • Which is cool, I know that's a source of anxiety for me.

  • I don't want anyone to hear what I am doing in here.

  • So I like that setting a lot.

  • The privacy is awesome.

  • Here all the doors go right to the edge of the stall and

  • You don't have that weird gap where you think someone

  • might be creeping on you while you are going to the bathroom.

  • It's awesome how the doors go all the way from the ground to the top

  • you feel super safe in your own little bubble at the bathroom.

  • It's great.

  • Some of those doors don't close properly in Canada?

  • Well pretty much...

  • Everywhere you go there is always a big gap between the ground

  • and the door.

  • There is also a gap between the lock and the stall.

  • It's interesting here to have your own tiny private little room

  • that you to go the bathroom in. It's nice. I like it.

  • You don't have to worry about people peeking under the stall.

  • I have had that happen to me in Canada before.

  • - Usually little kids. - Usually kids but...

  • It's still like... ok I am going to the bathroom...

  • Japanese Whiskey.

  • That's very nice here.

  • We have had a couple glasses of that.

  • - You saw that for the first time here? - I drank it for the first time now.

  • - It's delicious. - What was the best one so far?

  • Hibiki.

  • Yamazaki.

  • Squid. I guess. That was kind of creepy. I don't know.

  • Tentacles, yeah it's weird.

  • - Where did you see it? - It was in a Sushi Restaurant.

  • - Was it a full squid? - It was just the tentacle parts of it.

  • For me I'd say Yakitori.

  • It's not just chicken on a stick. It's chicken skin, and liver

  • and all kinds of really weird stuff on a stick. That is kind of weird.

  • It's still really good.

  • I don't like the skin but the other stuff is really good.

  • We had octopus balls... tak tak...

  • Takoyaki. They were good.

  • Very first time? - Yes.

  • We got Yakitori.

  • It said chicken so we were like OK.

  • It's like EVERYTHING from a chicken so gizzard, liver ....

  • It was definitely not beef. We realized that after we bit into it.

  • But it's good to try new things.

  • When we got on the train from the airport to Akihabara...

  • The seats on the train automatically turned around. It was very fun.

  • I have never seen that before.

  • - Were they turning while you were waiting? - They were cleaning the train.

  • The train was going to go the other direction so they turned the seats.

  • I thought "Japanese people really like gadgets."

  • I rode a train for the first time. In my country there are no trains at all.

  • Right!

  • You've seen the Japanese trains. What's your opinion on them?

  • Very crowded.

  • - I am like "Oh noo"

  • Yeah it's getting very cozy with strangers.

  • We noticed that people are allowed to wear whatever they want.

  • That's something you can't do in Sweden.

  • It's very conservative.

  • We really like that everyone can express their own style.

  • I think that was the first thing, maybe.

  • I think the same. You can just relax and dress (how you like).

  • For example people have school uniforms and we don't have them in Sweden.

  • That's one more thing that you see a lot.

  • Very beautiful school uniforms.

  • Do you want to have them back home?

  • I don't know. Maybe the cute ones.

  • What classifies as cute one?

  • The ones with the short skirts and the puffy over shirts.

  • A big puffy overshirt over everything. It looks adorable.
