I'd love to see how you go about making those videos, how much of it is scripted, if you shoot on separate days, how you get in contact with each person you interview. I know a lot of effort goes into them and seeing the process would be great, keep it up buddy.

March 1, 2020 Reply Bad Drivers of Bangalore I didn't buy a JR pass during my 9 day trip to Japan during Christmas. Instead I used train tickets and saved at least 15k Yen. Also note, if you just want to see Shinkansen by getting a visitor ticket in the shinkansen ticket counter. March 1, 2020 Reply Ferdiyan Surya Hi Paolo, good tips for our upcoming trip in late april. A bit concern about the covid-19 development in Japan. I hope it’s going to improve soon. What do you think, do we need to be concerned?

Thank you for your tips. March 1, 2020 Reply Angela Bacic There are actually some cheaper ways to get Shinkansen tickets. Tokai Tours does cheap round fare tickets to a handful of places. If you have a foreign passport you can buy a ticket. So if you live in Japan and have something other than a Japanese passport you are okay. Your visa doesn’t matter either. It’s called the flex rail ticket. Highly recommend it as I used it to go to Osaka last year March 1, 2020 Reply Andy Liew Oh come on man… Japan is full of Coronavirus now… Hokkaido is in lockdown mode now… March 1, 2020 Reply Hideki Dex Congratulations to 1 Million Subs, you've earned it March 1, 2020 Reply Letina Kuhinja / Leta’s Kitchen This is amazing! 🍀💗 Check out my channel, have a great day.

The Olympic model taxi can easily get three people, big suitcases and even the small bags too. If you need to take a taxi to get to the train station, use your hotel staff to get a taxi. We were staying close to Shibuya station (5-10 minute walk), but getting to the Narita Express location is a pain from the west side of Shibuya by walking (we did a trial run walking without bags). Trains in Japan are on time, so do give yourself extra time to catch a taxi to get to the station, 60-75 minutes before leaving. It is easier to be early than to be late. Waiting on the platform or near the platform is better than missing it. Also if you are in Kyoto, when the leaves are turning, you cannot get a taxi on weekends because they will all be already reserved to go around town. Learned that from our taxi driver on the way back to the train station on a Friday morning. March 1, 2020 Reply Wang Liao Better stay at home and not travelling. Japanese government is trying to hide true number of virus affected people and lie to the world.

March 1, 2020 Reply Leud Sagiri 13:55 ば。。ばかな！！ March 1, 2020 Reply Brenton Rawhoof Great video! One thing worth mentioning is that when using the Japan Rail Pass for green seats you have to reserve them ahead of time. If you use the regular Japan Rail Pass you can just show your pass and hop on the train. Just something to keep in mind. I personally like the flexibility of being able to jump on the train last minute without a reservation. You can still make a reservation with the regular pass but it isn't necessary. March 1, 2020 Reply ale kat Wait a minute 1mil. viewers!!!congratulations guys!!!!2😘😘😘😘🇬🇷❤🇯🇵 March 1, 2020 Reply ale kat Paolo I have a silly request. When you make a video of a market you visit(shibuya for example)can you mention from now on the name of the train station of the market. I've seen most of your videos and I will get lost if I don't know the nearest train station. Thank you March 1, 2020 Reply Domdo Oh gosh why doesn't my country have electric rental bikes like Japan??

March 3, 2020 Reply hugs2003 I flew red eye from CA to NY in sweatpants and flip flops so I could sleep comfy, was sat next to a very sick, open-mouthed coughing woman who ended up sleeping on my shoulder the whole night, and I ended up catching whatever the fuck it was she had. I was SO SICK the entire visit. Upon landing, they lost my luggage. I went outside to see that it was freaking snowing and my ride was late. They didn't get my luggage to me for THREE DAYS. So there I was standing around in the snow in flip flops, sickness incubating in my body, with no change of clothes. Fuck luggage delivery service. I'm keeping my stuff with me, thank you!
