Abroad in Japan

6 dagar sedan

Cape Soya is 1,000km from Tokyo at Japan's most northern point. In the height of winter we drive across a snowy Hokkaido to discover what's up there.
A HUGE thanks to Pete for joining! 🇺🇸 www.twitch.tv/premiertwo

NOTIFICATION SQUAD: To miss the Natsuki cameo in this video would be a crime! Well folks, you can't beat a good road trip and this was easily one of the most fun videos I've produced in 9 years. A HUGE thanks to my best American friend PETE for coming along for the ride (even if his motives were questionable). You can find him over on Twitch where he streams most nights (🌟www.twitch.tv/premiertwo ) and I look forward to stopping by and doing some shows with him in a few weeks to celebrate surviving our journey.

Going on a three day road trip to the northern most tip of Japan in the middle of the winter... all for a pun... That is some serious dedication to bad comedy. I love it. (Either that or some passive way to 1-up Ryotaro.)

I'd do the same thing too.... LOL. If someone bought me something and I broke it, and if opportunity came, I'd travel to replace it. Also, I've always wanted to go to Hakodate. I think I went to Fukuoka instead. At that time I was leaving in Japan and they were two opposite ends so I didn't have time. I was in Otaru in the middle of winter ages ago too. I still have winter snow boots that I bought there and never wear (in Australia) now.

About halfway through the phone call I saw the joke coming. I've lived in Hokkaido for a year now, and it doesn't take that long before that play on words comes up a few times. Really enjoyed the video! Thanks for the shot of Mt. Yotei at the beginning. Very cool to see the mountain I live next to show up on your channel.

After seeing that "Sematary", did anybody else wonder why there was no trace of that weird "Ancient Alien" Guy (aka Giorgio A. Tsoukalos) all over that place... telling People ..."Aliens, the only explanation"

God some of the shots, like the one at 10:25 add so much charm and style to the video it's indescribable. I've just been smiling at my screen like an idiot for 10 minutes now. This is one of the best things I've seen. I never thought travel vlogs could be this much enjoyable.

Pete: *explaining why the trip will be awesome and worth it. Chris: 🗿 On a serious note though, this video is one of the best Abroad in Japan videos I've seen, definitely underrated. The highlights were the contrast between a stereotypical British and American and the way Chris closely accepts the trip, seemingly like a tsundere. Truly hilarious

half of Hokkaido is already owned by the Chinese and so as Osaka. you're aforeigner,you maybe need not be careful getting infected by the corona. corona’s mission is get rid of the Japanese still living in there refusing to sell exactly like what the virus is doing in Italy,UK,America etc.
