Osaka Street Food Guide: Dotonbori ★ ONLY in JAPAN #23 大阪道頓堀食い倒れ挑戦
 
08:56
Osaka is known as Japan's kitchen and for good reason! It's loaded with some of the best and cheapest restaurants and street stands anywhere. Enter Dotonbori, the old entertainment district of Osaka that's also ground zero for cheap and easy to find street food. John Daub and Kevin Riley, a long-term resident of Osaka take their stomachs down the Dotonbori strip. We also introduce a very Osakan word: "Kuidaore" meaning eat until you drop! Street food on Dotonbori: ★ Takoyaki  Called "octopus ball" by newbies to Japan, these round treats normally come topped with a tangy thick soy sauce, Japanese mayonaise, and dried fish and seaweed. Some shops go even further adding half boiled eggs or mountains of green negi! A bowl of 6 to 8 balls costs 380 to 450 Yen. Recommended shop: Creo-Ru Takoyaki ★ Kushikatsu Another Osaka specialty you can find at a few stands. It's skewered and battered meats and vegetables deep fried until golden. pTake each skewer and dip it once in the special bath bin near the table or register. You won't be disappointed! Vegetables start at 60 yen and meats at 150 yen. Large Tiger Shrimps can go for 380 yen for one! Prices are listed on the menu outside the shop. ★ Gyoza Osaka has it's own variety of dumplings. What's different? It's cheaper and made in Osaka! 180 yen for 6 gyoza! ★ Ramen A few shops serve up hot bowls on the street side. Get a ticket at the vending machine for about 600 yen and enjoy! Recommended shop: Kinryu Ramen (The one with the Dragon!) ★ Crab legs Who would have thought crab was big in Osaka, but one of the most dominant restaurants serve them char-grilled right at the front of the street. The also have kani miso or "crab brains" served in a half shell. 500 yen for that. Yum. Recommended shop: Kani Doraku ★ More!!! The more you walk around, the more Dotonbori will surprise you.

Sapporo Ramen Alley Adventure ★ ONLY in JAPAN #49
 
07:40
RAMEN!! When you come to Japan, you know this is a meal not to be missed and Sapporo is home to some of Japan's best ramen restaurants. One place in particular has a long history of serving hungry customers. SAPPORO RAMAE ALLEY or Ganso Sapporo Ramen Yokocho (元祖さっぽろラーメン横丁) in Japanese is located in Sapporo's Susukino entertainment district and provides bowls from 11:00 to past midnight. Miso Ramen is the specialty – the toppings? It can get quite creative! BUTTER CORN CRAB MEAT / LEGS SCALLOPS WOOD EAR MUSHROOMS CHARGRILLED PORK CHASHU STEAKS ... are just a few ramen toppings / extras we will try in this episode. Sapporo Ramen Alley started officially in 1951 and many shops have come and gone through the years. Older shops like AJI NO KANRYU have been serving ramen since 1965 which newer shops that came recently have set up vending machine payment services that allow you to see a photo on the machine before paying. I asked why miso ramen was so popular in Sapporo. One shop owner said it's because a department store featured it at a Hokkaido food festival and it just sort of became a hit! Space is limited in many smaller shops, many are counter only -- and popular shops usually have a line out the door at peak times. Best to go early and if you have to wait – there is probably a good reason for it. VERY GOOD RAMEN! In this episode I ate these ramen shops at Ramen Alley: 1) Menya Kunimitsu / 麺屋 國光 Ramen: Hokkaido Mori Ramen 北海道盛りラーメン (Big Hokkaido Ramen) ¥1600 2) Aji no Kanryu / 味の華龍 Ramen: Corn Butter Ramen コーンバターラーメン ¥1000 3) Teshikaga Ramen / 弟子屈ラーメン Ramen: Chashu Grilled Pork Spicy Miso Ramen チャーシュー焼豚味噌ラーメン ¥910 GOOGLE MAP: https://goo.gl/maps/e5HZJt1FhCF2 GANSO SAPPORO RAMEN ALLEY URL: http://www.ganso-yokocho.com/ MORE RAMEN?

Osaka's Flamethrower Street Food Chef ★ ONLY in JAPAN
 
08:16
When a sushi chef meets a flamethrower, it creates the hottest street food restaurant in Osaka! There's a chef who has been cooking by flamethrower for over 25 years and the food ー is gourmet quality delicious! In this episode, I travel to Izakaya Toyo (居酒屋とよ) to experience Osaka's "hottest" street food. Toyoji-san opened his street side izakaya on the site of a parking lot in 1992, and today it's one of Osaka's most notable sushi stops. With a flamethrower, Toyoji-san can grill up a lot of maguro cheek meat for dozens of hungry customers in minutes, and the fire attracts an audience! The chef is a real entertainer and the food is outstanding, but it's the reasonable prices that keeps regular customers coming back for years. Eating flamethrower cuisine is amazing! The outside is cooked well and the inside remains moist and juicy. Toyoji-san's secret is to balance the hot with the cold. He has a bucket of ice water next to the grill. He periodically dips his hand into the ice water to balance the temperature and allows him to amazingly cook barehanded with the flamethrower! Where is Izakaya Toyo? https://goo.gl/maps/ns158W1rskk Station: Kyobashi (Osaka) Open 4 days a week from 14:00 to 22:00.

Osaka vs Hiroshima Okonomiyaki | Which one is better? ★ ONLY in JAPAN
 
10:14
Okonomiyaki is considered the soul food of both Osaka and Hiroshima, and both styles are must-try dishes in Japan ー but how are they different? Let’s go to Hiroshima and Osaka to learn from local chefs and see what’s inside those savory pancakes. What exactly are the ingredients? Which okonomiyaki do we recommend? Nicknamed “Japanese Pizza” or “Japanese Savory Pancake” Okonomiyaki is a fun dish served all over the country on teppanyaki tables but no where is there a passion for it than in Hiroshima and Osaka. Hiroshima vs Osaka! Osaka vs Hiroshima! In this episode, Kevin Riley and John Daub battle it out discussing why they like each one. Kevin is a long term resident of Osaka for over 20 years. John lived in Hiroshima twice, a regular customer at the city's Okonomimura (Okonomiyaki Town). ▶︎ Kevin Riley on YouTube Kuma's Kitchen: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCr4ycI70MEjcVgmm0y4IsYQ ▶︎ See the original Hiroshima Okonomiyaki cooking video (long version) I made at Okonomimura here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJZtefnr1GY Restaurant in Osaka: ▶︎ Chiyo Okonomiyaki お好み焼き 千代 本店 https://goo.gl/maps/aGfD4iaiFeu All subtitles in the series is community contributed.

Tokyo Mens-Only Capsule Hotel & Lounge Chair Stay Experience ★ ONLY in JAPAN
 
15:08
We're back at another capsule hotel in Tokyo and this time is a retro one ー and it's men only! (And we'll answer the question of why?) The Salaryman World of the 1970s is still alive at this capsule hotel in Okachimachi, Tokyo. It's a throwback to an era when men worked late and women stayed at home. Although there are now women-only capsule hotels and pods that take both men and women, the capsule hotel and sauna we're visiting is still men's only and has no desire to change ー and that's its attraction! It's authentic. Since the tourist boom to Japan started in 2014, new capsule hotels have been popping up in Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto that cater specifically to the needs of tourists. The modern decor and new hotel-like services raise the price for a stay, but Spa Resort President is no such place. It's a refuge for guys, very few foreigners and a unique feeling of being trapped in time. Privacy is minimal, the bath is excellent and the food is outstanding! It's what Japanese guys are used to. I have to admit, it's not an experience for everyone. It seems perfect for backpackers or people who just need a pad to crash -- guys only -- but for this episode, we all get a look inside and see what an all male capsule hotel is like. Leave a comment and tell me what you think? Would you stay here? ▶︎ Where is this Capsule Hotel? SPA RESORT PRESIDENT https://goo.gl/maps/9ULrCyYHFKz Located 1 minute from JR Okachimachi Station, 10 minutes from Ueno Station and Akihabara.

Fukuoka Ramen Eating Spree ★ ONLY in JAPAN
 
08:45
Fukuoka is the capitol of TONKOTSU RAMEN and man, do they make it good! Tonkotsu -- made from pork bone based soup -- is the ramen of choice here and this time, we'll go on a ramen eating binge from the famous Yatai in Nakasu and Ramen Stadium to the cheapest ramen in the city in Tenjin! We'll also get an inside look at RAMEN UNARI's special GYOKAI TONKOTSU RAMEN which is lighter bodied than the usual tonkotsu served in the city -- and absolutely amazing! Here are the ramen shops I visited in the episode: 1) Nakasu Yatai Stands Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/KRe9wuy9Kd92 2) Ramen Unari / ラーメン海鳴 URL: http://ramen-unari.com/nakasu/ Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/KRe9wuy9Kd92 3) Hakata Ramen Zen Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/sy1yosDknTA2 4) Ramen Stadium / Shodai Hidechan Ramen Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/hKSwsJRX7g62 URL: https://canalcity.co.jp/ra_sta/ There are too many ramen shops in Fukuoka to count! I reviewed the ones that were recommended to me by locals plus the yatai which are famous in Japan. Don't limit yourself to these places but I have to say, I loved Ramen Unari! MORE RAMEN? Check out the Sapporo Ramen Alley Adventure: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MTKUjXUDpI How about RAMEN CAKE in Akihabara? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvpPkdfz6F4 Note on the criticism of the yatai area along the river: I spent two nights at the Nakasu Yatai Ramen Stands and only 1 in 10 visitors were from Fukuoka. Most were Japanese tourists or from abroad. I went to two yatai and the service was not good each time. At the last one where I filmed, the staff told me "You can eat here if you won't stay long." I never had any intention to stay long but I got the feeling they don't have much respect for customers because almost none of them are repeaters, regular customers. I cannot recommend this area, but I hope you have a better experience than me. Try ordering something different than ramen at the yatai.

Ultimate Wasabi Guide ★ ONLY in JAPAN 究極のワサビ #28
 
09:56
Let's travel to a valley in the Japanese alps in Nagano to get some organically grown wasabi from the farm! Just how is wasabi grown? Daio Wasabi Farm is one of Japan's largest and is a great place to find out – and try wasabi cuisine! There are few produce directly associated with Japan. Wasabi is one of the most widely known and the flavor is found more and more in snacks because of it's spicy kick. It's also used in sushi, mixed in the soy sauce. There is a big different between the processed wasabi found in some restaurants and the fresh kind which is traditionally ground on a shark skin grater and collected. The color and smell. The texture and taste. Why does fresh wasabi cost so much? It takes between 12 to 18 month to grow one and there is no telling what size it will be when pulled from the ground. The wasabi needs to be in the shade and have constant fresh water. The minerals from the melted snows of the Japanese alps surrounding Daio Wasabi Farm are perfect to make the worlds most delicious wasabi. What else can you do at the wasabi farm? You can hike around the beautiful area and also grab a bite to eat in the food plaza. They have: Wasabi beer Wasabi ice cream Wasabi burger Wasabi don Wasabi juice Wasabi wine Wasabi leaf salad Wasabi croquet and yes ... just plain wasabi! This is wasabi heaven!

Why Japanese Live So Long  ★ ONLY in JAPAN
 
17:02
So you want to live to be 100? The answers to living a long and happy life may come from Japan which has the longest average life expectancy in the world (83.84 years) and where 2 million people are over the age of 90. Believe it or not, 6 of the top 10 oldest people alive are from Japan including Nabi Tajima of Kagoshima who is 117 years old and the last human alive born in the 19th century! How did so many Japanese get to live so long? What are some of the things Japanese do right? In this episode, John travels to Tottori Prefecture to the area around Mt Daisen where his friend Tomiko-san gives him some advice about how to live a long life and how she's lived to be 106 years old and still working on the farm! Her secret? Tofu. She started to make tofu in the 1950s when doctors said residents had to reduce high blood pressure. She made her own tofu for her family and her diet combined with good habits including staying busy and working hard have strengthened her mind and body. She still walks and writes tanka poetry. I also ask Mr. Seiichi, my 97 year old Japanese neighbor his secret and hear from a Shinto priest about his thoughts and personal experiences with living a very long and happy life in Japan. It's impossible to say exactly what has led to Japan having the longest average life expectancy in the world but these things may help: ★ Green Tea ★ Less fatty foods ★ Seafood ★ Fermented foods ★ Bath culture / Hot Springs & Onsen ★ Smaller portions ★ Education on personal responsibility ★ National safety / low crime rates ★ Respect for the Elderly (It's a national holiday too!) ★ DNA Special thank you to Daisen Town & Yonago City in Tottori Prefecture for the help. Daisen is celebrating its 1300th anniversary this year and you're invited to the party in June 2018! http://www.daisen1300.org/ Music credits: Always thankful for TeknoAXE (Matthew Huffaker) Songs: Granny Jenkins / Harassing the Mailman https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtgf00GvfFQVsYBA7V7RwUw The video was produced and created by John Daub.

Ultimate Japanese Sake Guide: Dassai Brewery 日本酒蔵元 獺祭ツアー ★ ONLY in JAPAN #41
 
15:26
Japanese sake. Let's go on an adventure across Japan to learn about the country's official drink. How do you make this stuff? How should it taste? Is polish size important? Is it like wine or like beer? How do you drink it? John Daub got a chance to tour Dassai Brewery with the company's CEO, the world's hottest sake brand to get those answers. Dassai only makes Junmai Daiginjo sake, the highest quality, and if you want to understand sake, start with the best. The company's story is significant. In the 1980's sake (nihonshu) consumption was going down because of competition from more beer, wine, and shochu. CEO Sakurai-san changed the company strategy, started making only Junmai Daiginjo and incorporated technology like centrifuges to make the smoothest drinking experience with sake. The result: 2005: 120,000 bottles sold 2013: 1,140,000 bottles sold Nearly a 1000% increase As the domestic market continues to struggle, internationally, no brand is more popular than Dassai. You see Hollywood stars and celebrities in New York, Paris and London sipping it these days. So -- what makes a good sake and what makes a great one? 1 Yamada Nishiki rice. The best place to grow this is Hyogo prefecture. 2 Polish rate: anything under 50% makes a sake Junmai Daiginjo category. The lower the polish ration, the less impurities, the smoother the taste. 3 The Koji. Dassai uses a very complex one called Tsukihaze koji-kin that penetrates into the rice. Here is the process that Dassai uses at the brewery: 1 The rice in planted in June. Rice planting is called taue in Japanese. 2 Rice Harvest 3 Polished to either 50% 39% or 23% 4 Wash, rinse and soak 5 Steam 6 Air dry and cooling in a process called Horei 7 Koji is created (as the sugar for the yeast to create alcohol) 8 Shubo yeast starter added to fermentation tanks 9 Moromi (mash) added to 5000L tanks 10 Process is monitored for 35 days. 11 Moromi press / Dassai centrifuge 12 Bottling and Pasteurization 13 Drinking! Dassai sells 3 main sizes. Here is the price list: 1800ml - 10,000 yen 720ml - 5,000 yen 300ml - 2500 yen 180ml - Japan only URL: Dassai Sake Website: https://www.asahishuzo.ne.jp/en/ Subtitles / CC credits: ★ DUTCH: GeertvKessel | YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/GeertvKessel Music: Corncob - Country by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1100565 Artist: http://incompetech.com/ Thingamajig by Audionautix is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ Artist: http://audionautix.com/ I Like Peanuts by Audionautix is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ Artist: http://audionautix.com/ Waltz of the Flowers by Tchaikovsky This show has been created and produced by John Daub ジョン・ドーブ.

Tsukiji Fish Market Guide: Tuna Auction and Breakfast Odyssey ★ ONLY IN JAPAN
 
11:32
The world's largest fish market is one of Tokyo's biggest attractions. Tsukiji is set to move to a new location soon so we went for a visit this month. ★ Tuna Auction 04:00 to 05:00 ★ Outer Market 06:00 to 09:00 ☆ Tuna Shop 08:00 ☆ Make Your Own Breakfast 08:30 ★ Inner Market 09:00 to 10:00 (Note: Photography and Video is prohibited inside the inner market until 09:00 every day.) Why is Tsukiji Tokyo's biggest attraction? Maybe it's because it's not a tourist attraction at all. This is a real market where many of Japan's best sushi chefs get their ingredients. It's raw and real. Tsukiji is essentially a city within a city. It has its own way of doing things. There are many rules to visiting Tsukiji. You should wear long pants, boots (if you have them – the floor is wet and full of fish guts), and you should be considerate of people's privacy, especially the sushi chefs shopping. The security guards have no trouble tossing you out at the gate! Photography is prohibited until 09:00 for privacy concerns. They are quite strict about this in the inner market. Breakfast: Should you eat at Sushi Dai? If you like waiting in line to eat the same fish at restaurants all around the area, go for it! There is no quality difference between restaurants in the inner market and those on the outside – all the ingredients come from the same place. We went into a stand in the outer market to see and yes, it was great! No haggling / bargaining in Tsukiji. The price is the price. Our guests for this episode are: ★ Greg Lane, founder and editor / writer for TokyoCheapo.com URL: http://tokyocheapo.com ★ Morita Hirobumi, head instructor for the Tsukiji Sushi Workshop URL: http://tsukiji-market.jp ★ Dru Tang, HinoMaple founder and Tokyo guide URL: http://hinomaple.com ☆ Special thanks to Masanori Numata for helping with the camera and also to Tsubasa Kaieda of www.tsukiji-market.jp for assisting on location. BREAKFAST: Maguro / Tuna shop in the outer market is here: MAP: https://goo.gl/maps/H4Okl Kaisendon tent with "Makase-don bowl" is here: https://goo.gl/maps/izkRx Public eating area in the outer market (vending machines and tables) is here: https://goo.gl/maps/Z0xIJ Uni and Hotate (scallops) were all purchased inside the inner market. You can shop yourself in the inner market after 09:00 or go with a shop owner anytime. Because Morita-san guided us, we were allowed entry. Please contact Tsukiji Sushi Workshop for ingredient tours of the inner market. Places and shops change over time so please note these places in the video may not be there in the future.

Gachapon: Capsule Toy Adventure in Akihabara ★ ONLY in JAPAN
 
10:04
Gachapon is toy capsules from coin dispensing machines that are found all over Japan. What's unique is that they don't only have high quality anime figures and other surprises, but they're loved by adults as well as kids! Japanese love the mystery of the what's inside that gachapon capsule. Gachapon items are collectables. Some have value and many sell out fast. The name "gachapon" is actually an onomonopia - it comes from the sound the machine makes when you turn the handle ("gacha gacha") and the capsule hits the bottom ("pon"). Akihabara is otaku central and host John Daub meets up with reporter Satsuki Uno and reporter Kai Okudara from Tokyo University. Together, the trio go deeper into the mystery of the gachapon. At Akihabara's Gachapon Kaikan, we find and highlight several interesting machines among the 530 in the shop. Are you ready for some otaku adventure that's Only in Japan? Don't miss this!

Volcanic Sand Bath Experience ★ ONLY in JAPAN
 
10:18
VOLCANIC SAND BATH? YES!! Welcome to Ibusuki, Kagoshima! In this episode, John travels to Kagoshima prefecture on the bottom of Kyushu to visit this unique style of onsen. It's call “suna mushi onsen” (砂むし温泉) in Japan. This style of Volcanic Sand Bath is only in Ibusuki, Kagoshima. There are several health benefits associated to suna mushi onsen. ★ Good for the skin ★ Improves blood circulation ★ Increases your metabolism ★ Relaxation The sand is on average 50 to 55 degrees Celsius (~122 F) and that heat can be adjusted for children (cooler) -- or hotter for those who can take the heat. The recommended time limit in the sand bath is 10 minutes although I like to stay under for 15 minutes. You can stay as long as you like but to be honest, you can't stay over 15-20 minutes because your skin and body just can't manage it. After the sand bath, you rinse off, return to blue yukata robe and soak in an onsen if you like. The whole experience is only 1080 yen. A small towel is 120 yen. Lockers and a yukata are included. Getting to Kagoshima: Flight: I flew SKYMARK airlines for 9,800 yen but ANA and JAL also fly to Kagoshima from Tokyo as well as Osaka / Kansai. Train: Kagoshima is now linked by the Shinkansen like from Tokyo but it takes about 7-8 hours with a change of trains in either Hakata (Fukuoka). Bus: There are night buses from Osaka, Fukuoka and Tokyo. I recommend flying though.

Geisha vs Oiran: What's the Difference? ★ ONLY in JAPAN #30 花魁と芸者の違い
 
13:31
If you're looking for Japanese culture, Asakusa in Tokyo is the top spot. On this day, John visits the Yoshiwara for the Oiran Dochu, a parade re-enacted annually to preserve the old traditions of the neighborhood. The event is attracting more visitors and it's time to explain exactly what you're seeing! Geisha vs Oiran: What's the difference? I ask Grigoris Miliaresis, a journalist living and studying Asakusa and historical Japanese culture. The faces may be white, but the wig, hair ornaments, kimono, colors, even feet are totally different! How much was a night with an oiran? According to Grigoris, it cost 1 year's salary for a normal worker! The Orian were not your usual prostitutes in the western sense. * Oiran choose their clients * Oiran met 3 times with a new client before anything “romantic” occurred. * The were as talented as geisha in the arts and, because they had extravagant dress and style, Oiran were like the movie stars, the pin up girls for men. Does this make them better than geisha? Perhaps. The Oiran Dochu is held on the first Saturday in April every year.

Stinky Sushi Eating Challenge: One Year in a Bucket ★ ONLY in JAPAN
 
12:51
If you think day old sushi is bad, try YEAR OLD SUSHI! That's exactly what Funazushi is, a local delicacy still made in the traditional way, the recipe dating back over 1000 years. With Japanese, it's notoriously sour, totally evil tasting and the smell ... ? Well, that's what I'm here to find out. In this episode, I will try to conquer my fears and eat some very old fermented sushi to see if this famous food lives up to its reputation as being Japan's grossest. Funazushi is part of the Narezushi category of sushi, the other category being Hayazushi. Let me explain. Hayazushi is the sushi we know today, a piece of raw fish on top of vinegar rice with a little wasabi. Hayazushi only came about in the early 1800s. Narezushi is the original sushi with origins going back a millennium. It's fermented in rice for a year, compressed with a heavy stone so that all air is kept out. Shiga prefecture's Funazushi is made in the original method used many generations ago which means ー this is ancient food! If you want to try what people ate 1,000 year ago, THIS IS IT! The challenge is on! Can you take down a plate of year old funazushi? Where is Shiga Prefecture and Otsu? GOOGLE MAP: https://goo.gl/maps/nsgW5UHaGB32 It's a quick 10 minute train ride from JR Kyoto Station. URL: So you want to try Inoue-san's funazushi?

Nara Street Food Guide w/ Extra Mochi
 
13:35
STREET FOOD! We’re back for more in one of Japan’s most traditional cities, Nara. What was once Japan’s capitol is now a place loaded with delicious street food for humans and deer alike. So, what’s Nara got to offer? I hope you're hungry! ★ YAKI IMO / Grilled Sweet Potato / 200 yen per 100g ★ YOMOGI MOCHI / green mowort mochi filled with azuki beans, slightly bitter, slightly sweet / 130 yen each ★ KAKI NO HA SUSHI / sushi wrapped in permission leaves 1000 to 15000 yen for 8 to 12 ★ DORAYAKI / pancakes filled with azuki red bean paste / 600 yen for a large one ★ DEER RICE CRACKCERS / shika senbei that they love to eat / 150 yen per pack ★ SHIKA NO FUN (Deer Poop) / chocolate covered peanuts or soy beans / 350 yen per bag ★ SOFT SERVED ICE CREAM / 350 yen each Probably the most famous street food is mochi prepared by Nakatanido, a hundred meters behind the Kintetsu Nara Station. The mochi making performace where Nakatani-san opens the shop window and pounds the mochi at lightning speed takes place a few times a day. Stop by and ask about performance times because you don’t want to miss it. It’s served right after and it’s absolutely the best mochi in Kansai. I went at 11:30am. Note that the deer are wild animals and although they’re mostly friendly, they will bite, charge and bump tourists. Please be careful especially with children. Nara is an easy train ride from Osaka or Kyoto and worth a day trip or longer if you like hiking and trekking around nature to see temples and shrines. Perfect when the weather is clear.

Not only is it a place to read a manga in a quiet place off the busy streets of Tokyo, it's also a place where you can get some privacy with a date watching 3D movies or even spend the night at an affordable rate.

The Pokemon Train Adventure: Japan's Coolest Anime Train ★ ONLY in JAPAN #36 復興のピカチュートレイン
 
10:08
Japan's trains are awesome not just because they are modern, fast and efficient. They're also super cool! Need an example? How about this: The Pokemon With You "Pikachu" Train! Need more? The GeGeGe no Kitaro "Kitaro Family Train" train in Yonago! There are even more anime decorated trains to ride spread all over Japan! It's a reason to leave Tokyo and visit the countryside. In this episode, John heads to Ichinoseki in Iwate Prefecture to ride the Pokemon With You “Pikachu” Train! It's on the Ofunato Line. This train is here for a reason. On March 11, 2011, Tohoku was hit with a massive earthquake and tsunami that devastated the area. So much was wiped out including the Ofunato Line. A year later, it was rebuilt and to brighten kids spirits and attract attention tot he area, the Pokemon With You train was launched. On the train is a dedicated play area for kids, loads of decorations, character voices making announcements and stops along the route to collect stamps are sparsely populated station towns. It's truly an amazing experience! Moreover, it give visitors to the area a chance to tour Kesennuma, the terminus that was hard hit by the tsunami. I got a chance to walk around and see the rebuilding as well as have lunch and a kakigori to cool down the summer heat. Train Schedule: Note: it is NOT daily The POKEMON WITH YOU Train runs about 8 to 10 times a month from Ichinoseki to Kesennuma.

Hiroshima Okonomiyaki Lunch Experiment 広島焼き ★ ONLY in JAPAN #19
 
10:47
New Episode! Hiroshima Street Food on Miyajima: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMHSdN1cc4o Hiroshima is one of Japan's top destinations, and when you're hungry, you have to try okonomiyaki. Hiroshima has it's own original style, and it's not so simple to make. John travels to Okonomimura, a building full of Okonomiyaki shops, for lunch. There are many different toppings you can put on okonomiyaki. In many ways, it's like a pizza! In other ways, it's like a sandwich. Taste is a personal preference so John experiments. With the help of a friend and the shop master, he puts one together. Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki is much different than Osaka's version. Osaka is more like a pancake with everything thrown into the batter. Hiroshima's is layered and takes time. The result is a more complex tasting meal. It's not just Hiroshima's soul food, it's super healthy and fun to eat. About Okonomimura: It's a top destination for locals and tourists alike. It's packed with shops on 3 floors each with it's own recommended variety. Prices for okonomiyaki range from 800 yen to 1380 yen depending on toppings and ingredients. Give it a try!

Bluefin Tuna (Maguro) Story | Sea to Sushi Shop ★ ONLY in JAPAN
 
11:59
Japan's most prized bluefin tuna comes from a town called Ōma where a HON-MAGURO auctioned in Tsukiji once fetched $1.4M (2003). Oma Maguro is a brand. Just the location it's caught increases the price of the tuna by as much as 20%! I traveled to the town on the tip of Japan's Honshu Island in Aomori prefecture to find out if the taste lives up to its reputation. ★ OUT TO SEA First I go out to the middle of the Tsugaru Straight between Honshu and Hokkaido to see where the maguro come from. The sea is rough out there and fisherman challenge themselves with line and pole to catch a prized bluefin. ★ CUTTING UP A TUNA I visit Oomanzoku to watch owner Takeuchi-san cut up a newly purchased hon-maguro from Tsukiji. He puts on a show 3-4 times a week and after the cut, I went in for a sashimi platter (3000 yen / $30) ★ AT THE RESTAUARNT I moved on to HAMA SUSHI for a 7-course meal consisting of only OMA MAGURO! Menu listed below. ★ WHY IS OMA'S BLUEFIN TUNA THE BEST IN JAPAN (and the world)? According to Takeuchi-san, the bluefin in this area eat a lot of squid and that gives their meat extra tasty fat and good consistency which is prized in Japan. The Otoro (light pink fatty tuna) is by far the best I've ever tasted! Google Map: Ōma, Aomori Prefecture 青森県大間町 https://goo.gl/maps/s8ku6zUf32G2 HOW TO GET THERE: From Hakodate: take the ferry to Oma / 2.5 hours http://www.tsugarukaikyo.co.jp/timetable/timetable_route2/ From Tokyo: Shinkansen to Shin-Aomori or Flight to Aomori Airport NOTE about Bluefin Tuna overfishing / endangered status: I was concerned about this but what I learned is that the maguro here are not net fished by big boats. They are pole and string caught meaning local fisherman don't catch more than a few at a time. Please take note that Aomori prefecture has laws in place and although other prefecture have different laws, the fisherman of Ōma have a profound deal of respect for the hon-maguro. Despite what you hear in the news, I did not see any kind of abuse. I personally do not eat much maguro because of the news, and any maguro that is too cheap has most likely come from larger ships over fishing an area and of low quality. Oma's fishing practice is the opposite, it's reputation important to the city. * I felt it important to include this.

Highway through a Building Story ★ ONLY in JAPAN
 
05:48
Osaka's Gate Tower Building is an amazing sight to see because ... well, how should I put this? A highway goes through the building. It literally does, and there is a story behind it. In this episode, John not only goes inside to see where the elevator takes him, he also drives through it -- in a Lotus Seven. We'll also go up the Umeda Sky Building and catch some fantastic angles of the city, skyline and Gate Tower Building. THE STORY: Here it is from the building owner. It’s basically a land rights dispute with a sort of happy ending. The property was owned by a business (coal and wood company) since the early Meiji era but when business declined, so did the buildings in the 1970s. The area was approved to be redeveloped in 1983 but the property holder refused to give up the land, even though new building permits had been refused to him. The highway corporation and the property owner negotiated for 5 years and what you see today is their compromise. Highways usually buy the land they’re on but a new law in 1989 allowed the possibility of having two owners on the same spot, really meant for highways to go underground but hey – let’s get creative. The highway is the legal tenant of floors 5 through 7. The current building tenant on the other floors is TKP. WHERE IS THE BUILDING WITH THE HIGHWAY THROUGH IT? Google map: https://goo.gl/maps/qGbpaZ1Ktw12 Closest Station: JR Fukushima Station It's one stop away from JR Osaka Station on the Loop Line. Special thank you to TKP and the building owners for allowing me to film inside the building.

Welcome to Obama City ★ ONLY in JAPAN
 
09:11
This place is for real! A city in Japan called Obama. They must have named it after the former president, right? Well ... Republicans can sigh a breath of relief as this Obama was here first. Obama City, Japan's history goes back centuries and the coincidence of phonetically having the same name as Barack Obama's last name is what makes the city stand out internationally. Oh, in case you're wondering, in Japanese, "Obama" actually means "Small Beach". Like any town with such a unique coincidence, the city embraced it and made a strong bond with the Senator then President. It started when Senator Obama landed in Japan and the immigration officer told him he was from Obama! But take a step back from the last 10 years and you'll find another kind of city. Obama City is located in Fukui Prefecture, about 70km from Kyoto on the Sea of Japan. It was the Gateway to Japan for centuries before the Edo period because it was the closest link to Kyoto from the Sea. The route used was called MACKEREL ROAD because SABA (Mackerel) was the most traded fish, delivered to Kyoto endlessly along with loads of other goods to and from the imperial city. ▶︎ WHERE IS OBAMA? https://goo.gl/maps/F2rYmxC11p42 ▶︎ WHAT CAN YOU DO IN OBAMA? Well, eat! Obama Fish Market is friendly and has an amazing teishoku restaurant that opens early. It's also famous for lacquerware (luxury chopsticks, boxes) and it's hundreds of temples and shrines in the mountains. There are also boat tours cruising along the picturesque coast. If you want to visit the President Barack Obama Library / Museum of sort, head to the lobby of the Hotel Sekumiya between JR Obama Station and the sea. Political note: The Trump Obama debate is not something I cover in this episode nor Democrats vs Republicans. I have no personal opinion in this episode and actually tease the situation :) If there were a Trump city, I'd cover that too but phonetically Obama O-BA-MA works well in Japanese and is also a last name in Japan. Japan is looking forward to President Donald Trump's visit in November just like they would any strong ally and he'll have a warm welcome just like former President Obama did when he visited. I do recommend President Trump visit Obama City. The hotel I stayed in is no Trump Tower but it was good enough for the US Ambassador John Roos.

Japanese Manhole Covers: Drainspotting Adventure & Factory Tour ★ ONLY in JAPAN

Manhole covers are trending high in Japan and for good reason -- they're stunning! Only in Japan are manholes to cover sewage designed so beautifully that they now make MANHOLE TRADING CARDS! (Travel around Japan and collect them all. They're free!) The craze is real, folks. There's even a new word for manhole enthusiasts: MANHOLERS In this episode, John travels around the country as a manholer in search of Japan's best designs. He also visits Nagashima Imono Casting Factory where manhole covers are made and finds out why they have designs and are painted. He also visits the Manhole Summit for the latest news and designs. FACTS ABOUT JAPANESE MANHOLE COVERS: ★ They were a way after WWII (World War 2) for Japan to spread the importance of its new sewer system project. ★ Okinawa (Naha city) was the first designed manhole in 1977. It had fish on it. ★ Now 95 % of all municipalities in Japan have customized manhole covers. ★ There are over 12,000 designs around Japan! ★ Manhole covers are sometimes painted for commemorative covers or for inside areas without vehicles like shopping arcades and parks. The paint used is a top secret mixture. ★ Designs represent local culture, history, mascots or sports teams: things citizens are proud of. About Manhole Cards: The cards are free and you have to physically go to each location to get one. It's first come, first serve. Where To get the cards?

World's Best School Lunch ★ ONLY in JAPAN
 
11:34
Japan is the king of SCHOOL LUNCHES and in this episode, I find the answer to why -- while eating a lot of Japanese school food. ★ Watch the latest episode on Japanese Prison Food: https://youtu.be/S2UBy8bkgyE School lunches in Japan are world famous for being super healthy and delicious. With extremely low childhood obesity rates, many have turned to Japan for solutions to feed their school aged kids in the cafeteria. But that's part of the answer. Japanese elementary school kids don't even eat in a cafeteria. They eat in the classroom ー with the teacher. It is not possible to eat inside a Japanese elementary school (if you're a tourist) but there is a place in Tokyo where you can try nearly everything. Japanese parents take their preschool kids here to try it as well as older people coming back for a taste of nostalgia. This magical place is called KYUSHOKU TOBAN (給食当番 ) and it's a place where you can not only try some of Japan's regional school foods from all over the country, you can also do it in an elementary school classroom! The 2nd floor is a near exact replication. If you've ever wanted to be an exchange student in Japan -- or return to 5th grade, here's your chance. Unique Japanese School Lunch MENU Items: ★ AGEPAN: Fried baked bun covered in sugar and kinako (or other toppings like cinnamon or cocoa) ★ SOFTMEN: A special noodle served only in schools. It comes wrapped in plastic and should be dipped in meat sauce or stew. ★ WHALE: This was served in schools a long time ago because whale was more available and much cheaper than beef, chicken or pork. Today, it's no longer served in school but you can try some at izakayas around Tokyo and here at this restaurant. Whale is rarely eaten these days since the price of other fish and meats is significantly cheaper. WHY ARE JAPANESE SCHOOL LUNCHES SO AMAZING? The program is highly regulated with calorie intake and nutritional value set for each scheduled meal. Ingredients are usually local and meals are prepared from scratch. There are no cafeterias in Japanese elementary schools. (They exist in high schools.) Kids eat their lunches in the classroom with the teacher. They learn about nutrition and food responsibility in a hands on setting. Milk is served with every meal. All students eat the same meal. If a student hates an item, they have to stay and finish it. Parents pay monthly for the school lunches, about $40 to $60 a month. The Japanese School Lunch program started in 1954. After World War 2, resources were scarce and the government tried to make sure every child had a balanced meal. Before World War 2, kids brought their own bento. The usual school food back then was the NORIBEN, rice, bonito fish flakes and roasted seaweed on a metal lunch box. Milk was a luxury item and there were few vegetables.

Japanese Inn & Kaiseki Cuisine: The Ryokan Stay Experience
 
16:33
A Traditional Japanese Inn stay can be the highlight of any trip to Japan, and this comprehensive tour of 13 hot spring towns will give you a complete picture of what to expect during a stay. From the tatami room to the kitchen and dining room, this is the story of the Ryokan. After 20 years living in Japan, a Ryokan stay is the most authentic experience one can have traveling the country and Fukushima, Japan's third largest prefecture, is famous for that countryside charm and service found around its mountains. It's only a 75 minute Shinkansen train ride from Tokyo making it an ideal getaway from more crowded spots like Nikko and Hakone. In this video, you will see exactly what you will get from start to finish. As Japan moves closer to the 2020 Olympics, services are catering more to international visitors and these hotels featured are all accommodating and friendly places, staff learning English to communicate with people from around the world. ▶︎ What is Kaiseki Ryori / Cuisine? It's a traditional Japanese dinner with many courses including a starter, soup, side items, main course and dessert. ★ Sashimi / Sushi ★ Sukiyaki ★ Yakiniku ★ Tempura ★ Miso Soup It's all here, and it's all prepared with local ingredients of the season, always freshly made in the kitchen. ▶︎ How much is a night at a Ryokan / Traditional Japanese Inn? It is usually charged by the person instead of the room because it includes 2 meals, dinner and breakfast. On average, I have spent between 12,000 yen ($100) to 22,000 ($180) per person for a night and here is why it is worth it. Of all the experiences you will have in Japan, this will be the one you remember the most, dressing in a cotton kimono (yukata) to walk down to dinner, bathing outdoors in a hot spring in the snow, extraordinary Japanese service, amazingly beautiful meals ... you're paying for an experience not just a stay.

Japan's White Strawberry: Luxury Fruit Unboxing & Adventure ★ ONLY in JAPAN
 
08:53
I was in the basement supermarket in Shibuya and -- THERE IT WAS! THE WHITE STRAWBERRY! I could smell it a few meters away. Was it real? (Yes, it was.) One white strawberry cost 1080 Yen (US$10.00) so I decided to learn more about the Japanese white strawberry and unbox it for you in this video ... and that is what this episode is all about. It's the door into a new world full of strawberries in Japan. About Japan's White Strawberry: There are so many varieties / cultivars of strawberries in Japan. The HATSUKOI NO KAORI or “SCENT OF FIRST LOVE” is Japan's first white strawberry, different than the pineberry because of its size, softer skin and juiciness and sugar content. It was created by Miyoshi Agritech Co. of Yamanashi in 2006. In the episode, I ate the SHIROU HOUSEKI 白い宝石 White Strawberry. Cost: 1080 Yen ($10) for 1. Weight: about 50 grams It must be eaten within 24 hours according to the store manager at Tokyu's fruit section at Foodshow. They're grown on in Saga prefecture on Kyushu Island. Other vareties of What Strawberries include: ★ Yuki Usagi "Snow Rabbit" 雪うさぎ ★ Sakura ichigo "Cherry Blossom Strawberry" さくらいちご ★ Tenshi no Mi "" Fruit of the Angels' 天使の味 Featured White Strawberries ★ Shiroi Houseki "White Jewel / White Gem" 白い宝石 ★ Hatsukoi no Kaori "Scent of First Love" 初恋の香り ☆ Pineberry / Popular in the UK and Europe but not available in Japan The strawberry season in Japan is from December to March, winter being the best season because the berry ripens more slowly, building up the sugar content and color over a greater period of time. Temperature control is essential. Almost all of Japan's strawberries are in greenhouses. I also went to my neighbor's farm in Ichikawa to learn more about strawberries in general. There are about 25,000 strawberry farms in Japan but sometimes your neighbor sells the best ones and is a great source on information. Thank you, Ota-san! If you ever ask yourself, what is the white strawberry? This is you answer. Try one if you find them while traveling in Japan.

Edamame Farm | Japanese Superfood Snack Adventure ★ ONLY in JAPAN
 
12:23
Edamame is the world's healthiest snack food, enjoyed everywhere in Japan during the summer when it's harvested ー and it's my favorite Japanese appetizer by far ー but I also had a lot of questions about this amazing super bean: ★ How exactly do you eat them? ★ What's the best way to cook them? ★ How are they grown? Harvested? ★ Why are they different than soy beans? ★ How healthy are they (really)? To find all my EDAMAME answers, I traveled from Tokyo to Noda in Chiba prefecture to visit Yumeaguri Noda (ゆめあぐり野田), a farm run by Sekine-san. I toured his farm and learned how to eat edamame like professionals. Edamame facts: ☆ There are over 50 varieties of edamame in Japan (according the the kinds of seeds sold by JA). ☆ Edamame are high in calcium, amino acids, fiber, vitamins and minerals; low in sugar and fat and have almost no cholesterol. ☆ What does edamame mean? The word "edamame" in Japanese means (eda) stem / branch & (mame) bean. WHAT EXACTLY IS EDAMAME? It's an immature soy bean. It's harvested when still young then either boiled (for 4 minutes) or steamed with a little salt. It's cooked in the pod and eaten by popping them out and into your mouth. Best enjoyed in Japan in the summer with beer. WHEN IS THE BEST SEASON FOR FRESH EDAMAME? It depends on the area. In TOKYO, it's from June to August. In the north, it's from July to September. You'll find them in every supermarket for $3 to $5 a pack between June and September. Frozen edamame are available year round. Noda city is called the "HOME OF EDAMAME" and worth a visit if you are a big edamame fan! It's a 30 minute walk from Noda Station to Yumeaguri Noda ( ゆめあぐり野田 ) Google Map: https://goo.gl/maps/9jXUQWXPqBm John on Instagram: http://instagram.com/onlyinjapantv Support the channel on Patreon: http://patreon.com/onlyinjapan This show has been created and produced by John Daub ジョン・ドーブ.

The Story of Japanese Rice: The Amazing Grain 日本酒への道「米」★ ONLY in JAPAN #35
 
13:11
This episode is more than just rice! Perhaps this will open your eyes to the adventure you're about to take: ☆ Beautiful scenery ☆ Dangerous animals ☆ Delicious foods ☆ Handling heavy machinery ☆ Booze and parties! (Sake and festivals) All this is part of the story of rice in Japan. You are what you eat (and drink) and in Japan, that may just be a lot of rice! Rice is more than food in Japan – it's used in religious ceremonies and at festivals. Watch sumo and you'll see them throwing – rice! Rice was even once used as money just like how the Romans used salt as currency. There are also many varieties of rice. The reason? Japan has so many different landscapes and climates – some varieties do well at elevation, so taste better when cold, others when hot. The taste differs from region to region based on the environment – water, air, temperature, fertilizer, elevation, planting / harvesting and general daily care. In the episode, John Daub travels to Hyogo prefecture north of Kobe to a rice paddy owned by sake maker Dassai. By planting the rice by hand, it's an opportunity to get a feeling for how rice was grown decades ago. These days though, a rice planting machine is used and John jumps into the driver's seat for a chance to plant a few rows of Yamada Nishiki rice. This program opens in Tokyo at Ueno at Inari-cho Aizawa Rice Shop. The owner explains the meaning of rice to Japanese and we even get to watch the husking process and eat some gohan. Get a close look at the rice polishing process: * Genmai (Brown Rice) * Hakumai (Polished White Rice) We meet Mr. Seiichi, John's 94 year old neighbor! He talks about how important rice was in the early 1900s in Japan.

Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto: All 10,000 Gates Explored ★ ONLY in JAPAN #24 夜の京都伏見稲荷神社
 
09:08
Adventure in Kyoto! Loads of culture and history in one city. We've got all that and more in this episode of ONLY in JAPAN. Kyoto's "Shrine of 10,000 'Torii'" or Gates is simply awesome. It's also ranked as Japan's no.1 attraction for foreign tourists* Yes, it can be crowded during the day, but we'll explore this mysterous shrine at night when no one is around -- except the wildlife and a few stragglers. This time, John will explore and explain Kyoto's most popular shrine, Fushimi Inari. HISTORY: Fushimi Inari is full of history going back to the year 717! John interviews one of the Shinto priests and unravel some of the history that might not be in guidebooks. The lengend of Fushimi Inari is revealed! Are those gates orange or red? What's the meaning behind the color? Which big Hollywood movie was this shrine featured in? Who cleans all these gates? John wants to know. WHEN TO VISIT: It may seem impossible to escape the crowds here, but you can! The hours are officially listed as 10:00 to 16:00 but the shrine is open to all free of charge 24 hours a day. Best of all it's FREE! Why? The gates!! They're all bought by people and businesses to bring them luck. The best time to see it is at night. It's when most locals go with thewir friends, high school couples can be seen climbing up together. Night time adventurers will also see a lot of cats! That rustling you hear on the woods outside the orange gates may not always be a cat though .... KYOTO BY BICYCLE: How do you get to Fushimi Inari from Kyoto Station? I could draw you a map, but it's much better to show you by bicycle! Rent a cycle for the day and see more of Kyoto. Cheap and easy. KCTP (Kyoto Cycling Tour Project) has a good variety of city bicycles for the surrounding hills or the city. You can reserve online or call and have the bike waiting for you as soon as you arrive. The city is not always cycle friendly so keep to the left side, use the light after dark and try to avoid pedestrian sidewalks. HOW TO GET THERE: Here's the Google Map https://goo.gl/maps/qXalt Take the JR Nara line from Kyoto Station for 3 stops or rent a bicycle :) Taxi takes about 10-15 minutes. *Ranked no.1 by Trip Advisor 2014 rankings on Japanese Atttractions URL: Fushimi Inari Shrine Website http://inari.jp/ Map: https://goo.gl/maps/qXalt KCTP (Kyoto Cycling Tour Project) Bicycle Rental: http://www.kctp.net/en/ from 1,000 yen per day Map: https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?ll=34.98655,135.753636&msa=0&spn=0.007445,0.016512&mid=zJSzzT2EYdOw.kbkOXfp61sv4 This show has been created and produced by John Daub ジョン・ドーブ.

Volcano & Lava Hiking Adventure ★ ONLY in JAPAN
 
09:17
Start your year with -- a VOLCANIC EXPLOSION! Japan's most active volcano is also a great place for lava trail hiking, hot spring bathing and pure adventure. Where is this magical volcano you ask? It's down on Kyushu Island in Kagoshima Prefecture (1,300km from Tokyo) and that ash and fire throwing cone is SAKURAJIMA! You can get there by ferry in 15 minutes from the city center for a ridiculous 180 yen / $1.50, about 4km across the sea. Sakurajima is famous for island mikan, much smaller and sweeter than on the mainland. The Sakurajima DAIKON RADISH which can weigh as much as 45kg is also well known. It's the biggest radish in the world. (Are you excited yet?) If radishes aren't enough, there's that LAVA TRAIL and loads of paths for bicycling. Not far away are sea view onsen baths where you can soak up those minerals and long views across the sea. The Sakurajima Visitor's Center is the place to start your adventure. Inside, data on the island's volcanic activity and history is all documented with diagrams and videos. There's also a gift shop with some cool things to buy. I went in the off season (January) but that shouldn't stop you from visiting. It just means you get the whole place to yourself. The population on Sakurajima is quite old. I met a 97 year old woman who was walking around just fine. She was half my size but seemed to have twice my energy so I think there's something truly magical about this island. I hope some of that magic rubs off onto you as well. HOW TO GET THE SAKURAJIMA: It's a 90-115 minute flight from Tokyo (Haneda or Narita Airport) or a 7 hour trip on the Shinkansen. Great if you have a JR Rail Pass! Buses depart regularly from Kagoshima Airport to the city center where you can either grab a taxi to the ferry terminal or a bus from Chuo-Kagoshima Station. It's a short ride. THE SAKURAJIMA FERRY: It's 24 hours, departing every 15-20 minutes. Adults: 180 yen ($1.50) Child: 90 Yen ($0.75) Ferry Schedule and Guide: http://www.city.kagoshima.lg.jp/sakurajima-ferry/english/guides.html Try a bowl of udon or soba on board for 480 yen!

How to Travel Japan for Free ★ ONLY in JAPAN
 
11:24
I found a way to travel with ZERO transportation costs and 100% total adventure. I traveled all of Japan like this -- and you can do it too! For many people, it will change the way you see the world forever. That's right, all you need is a starting point and a little courage (and maybe a few other things, but they don't cost much at all) and you can travel the whole country with pocket change. Seems easy, right? Well, I said free not easy. Consider it a challenge for an experience you'll never forget. In 2003 (30 days of travel in Japan, 3000 km) Transportation costs: 0 Accommodation: $10 Food: $120 (almost everyone treated me to lunch or dinner) Entrance fees: $20 for baths and laundry People who picked me up: 20 In 2017, 32 people stopped and took me 3000+ km again Transportation costs: 0 WHY IS HITCHHIKING IN JAPAN THE GREATEST TRAVEL HACK EVER? ★ It's free ★ The people who pick you up are also the most knowledgeable people on the area you want to go to. No need for a guide book! ★ Car is the best way to see all the places other tourists can't visit with a train pass ★ Learn about Japanese culture by being thrown deep into it ★ Did I mention the fresh air and beautiful views from all over Japan? No? Okay, put that on the list too. First, you'll need courage. And then you'll need these things: A map of Japan or a smartphone A tent (optional) 3 black markers Cardboard A smile HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE: Stay out hitchhiking for as long as you like (or as long as you have a visa to stay) Make loads of friends along the way. Have hundreds of stories that will inspires your friends, family and the internet. Hitchhiking Japan is not without risks, like all things in life. There are some things you should take note of. 1) Never get into a car if you feel uncomfortable. After 50 rides across, I have not had a problem. 2) Always let people know where you are and where you're going. 3) Carry cash for at least 2 days in case of trouble. There aren't always ATMs in the countryside. 4) Bring extra markers and cardboard 5) Bring a English - Japanese dictionary so you can communicate. Smart phone batteries die. 6) Don't hitchhike in the middle of winter or summer. You may be outside for an extended period. 7) If you have any medical conditions, please note that you may be away from medical care, a risk for all world travelers. 8) Absolutely exchange business - name cards whenever you can with your ride so you have each other's information. 9) It can be hard and sometimes traffic is light or people won't stop. Be prepared for anything including spending the night in your tent in the park or roadside -- or rain. I have seen more than most people while hitchhiking and it's an experience I loved so much, I did it twice. I've made lasting friendships with people I wouldn't have met if I hadn't had the courage to do so and this adventure has changed my life forever. It's not for everyone, but if you decide to hack the system, bypass a JR Train Pass and hitchhike like this, you will be rewarded with an amazing journey that you'll be able to tell you're grand kids. Best of luck to you out there on the road! See photos from this trip on instagram: http://instagram.com/onlyinjapantv

Japanese Mascots Unleashed: Guide to Japan's Yuru-chara ★ ONLY in JAPAN #42
 
09:34
Japanese Mascots have gone wild all over Japan! There are literally thousands of them representing local towns and areas, cities, government agencies, banks, products – even prisons! Japanese mascots are called “yuru chara” in Japan and there are certain guidelines to become one: 1) The character must convey a love for the local area or hometown 2) Character movements or behavior should be unique, unstable or awkward 3) They should also be YURUI meaning unsophisticated, laid-bak – and absolutely lovable! In this episode, John Daub travels to Shizuoka to attend the 2015 Yuruchara Grand Prix held in Hamamatsu city. 1727 mascots were entered. In the first Yuru Chara Grand Prix in 2010, only 169 mascots were entered so there's been an explosion of characters! We will also take a close look at Kumamon くまモン who is the most recognized mascot in Japan. Kumamon is from Kumamoto which was recently hit with massive earthquakes. Kumamon now is bringing happiness to those effected by the earthquake and will help to rebuild the image of Kumamoto prefecture. How much money do Japanese mascots generate for Japan? In 2012, the strongest year for yuru chara growth, they generated US$16B. URL: Yuru Chara Grand Prix http://www.yurugp.jp/ Won won?

Tokyo Gift Vending Machine: One Minute Shopping Spree ★ ONLY in JAPAN
 
10:21
Christmas shopping can be stressful – but not today! I've found a Japanese Vending Machine that is perfect, making it easy for you to shop and save time -- and save money! There are over 650 of these King's Treasure Box (王様の宝箱) vending machines around Tokyo ー and what's inside may surprise you! I spoke with the creator and CEO of these special vending machines who gave me an inside look at the machine -- and all that treasure! Okay. Okay. I know it's lazy to shop for friends at a vending machine. I mean, it's the thought that counts, right? But there are advantages to shopping at vending machines. WHY SHOP AT A VENDING MACHINE? It's convenient. There are hundreds of these machines! It's easy. Just push the button. It's quick. Done in a minute. It's not your fault if they don't like it. Blame the machine! Oh, and it's super fun! THE HISTORY: Nakajima-san, the creator told me he made these machines because he loved Gachapon so much, that he wanted a 24 hour solution for adults. Normal gachapon machines are made of plastic and lack security so they are taken off the streets and locked away when the store closes. With his vending machine, he can play it any time! Basically he converted old book vending machine and turned them into package dispensing ones. He redesigned the buttons and racks inside, made them more stylish and easier to work. In the end, he made a bigger, 24-hour gachapon machine for adults. WHAT'S INSIDE? Nintendo DS (the main prize!) Walkie-talkie Watch set LED Light Audio Activated Glasses T-SHIRT with a mini speaker that plays a guitar! Battery Chargers for smart phones iPhone lens ... and much much more! WHY IS IT ONLY 1000 YEN? Since he buys in bulk and many toy and product makers want their goods featured in these machines, he gets great discounts and that allows you to get items valued at 1000 yen or more. Sometimes less. It's sort of luck. The most valuable is a NINTENDO DS!

Cherry Blossoms Around Japan: Mt. Fuji and Nara ★ ONLY in JAPAN #8
 
08:17
▽▲Cherry Blossom Mania: Mt. Fuji and Nara▲▽ Let's leaves Tokyo for the Japanese countryside. Mt. Fuji's Kawaguchiko (lake) and Yoshinoyama (mountain) in Nara Prefecture. Yoshinoyama is the no.1 spot for viewing the cherry blossoms in all of Japan. We also look at some of the unique foods made from cherry blossoms at Yoshinoyama: ice cream, yokan, sushi and sakura liquor. Knowing the cherry blossoms (sakura) is to know Japan itself. Their beauty comes quickly and is short lived -- falling from the tree after only 10 days. The samurai lived knowing their life would be short, and that spirit is in each cherry blossom. Called "mono no aware" which is deeply rooted in Buddhism, Japanese have a strong connection to all things. The beauty felt for the sakura is deep. Mono no aware is also an important factor in how Japanese connect to manga, anime and things important to them. This show has been created and produced by John Daub. He's been living and working in Japan for over 15 years and regularly reports on an International TV Show for Japan's International Channel. Casting light on quirky, funny & amazing Japanese culture in a way only seen through the eyes of a foreigner! Join us as we penetrate deep into the heart of Japan!

Tokyo Capsule Hotel Experience ★ ONLY in JAPAN
 
12:28
A real life capsule to sleep in. Cool! This is one of the most "ONLY in JAPAN" experiences possible — staying in a capsule hotel in a Japanese city. It’s cheap and convenient but why do people actually stay here? Is it ... you know ... big enough? In this episode, John Daub and Masahito Kawahata head to the Shinjuku Kuyakusho-mae Capsule Hotel in Kabukicho to find out. Japan’s Capsule Hotels are more than cheap places to crash. This type of hotel is distinctively Japanese in style, cramming in as much as possible into a tiny space to make a comfortable experience, but can a guest really be comfortable in one? More and more foreign tourists to Japan want to give it a try! How small are these capsule? How much is a night? What are the rules? Is it worth it? Miss your last train? Work too late? Argument with your husband or wife and need a place to crash? Those might be the normal reasons why Japanese salarymen spend the night at a capsule hotel. For foreign tourists it’s a chance to experience a unique style of hotel that seems more like spending a night at the morgue. Before you pass judgement on capsule hotels, some things about them may surprise you! What can you find at the capsule hotel? Here’s a list: Capsules Lockers Restaurant (Open 18:00~24:00) Community Room Vending machines Laundry machines Fast and free WIFI English speaking staff Women’s only floor Japanese-style bath and sauna Close to Shinjuku Station, bars, Golden Gai and Robot Restaurant URL: http://capsuleinn.com/shinjuku/en/ Google Map: https://goo.gl/maps/j1Ll3 Thank you PIRATES OF TOKYO BAY for the support!
