[Martina] So you booked your tickets to Japan you’re ready to come here
0:07
But you know what it can be pretty overwhelming
0:09
[Simon] We’re gonna give you our travel tips to Japan to make your trip a whole lot easier
0:13
*Toilet Flushing*
0:21
*Fart noise*
0:22
[Simon] Ahhh… F*sheep noise*k
0:25
Now what you’re gonna find in Japan is that public bathrooms
0:28
are a little bit hard to find an easy way to find a public
0:31
Bathroom if you really need to go is in convenience stores and convenience stores are everywhere you don’t even have to buy anything
0:37
But you can leave something behind excuse me
0:41
*toilet flushing*
0:43
That actually wasn’t me flushing that was me just pushing the button that said flushing sounds
0:50
Whew this seat’s warm. I have a question
0:53
I want you to describe in the comment section below if you went into a bathroom in your
0:58
convenience store in your home country
1:00
What would it be like? would it have a warm toilet seat?
1:03
Along with a bidet and flushing sounds? Would it be as clean as this?
1:07
Please tell me I’d love to know. I’m sure it’s as clean as what we have here.
1:11
God, I’m so comfortable, I don’t even wanna go.
1:13
That’s it for this video
1:15
I’m chilling in this bathroom
1:29
[Simon] Now you might find if you’re using data roaming on your phone that it dies a lot mine certainly does
1:34
[Martina] Yep
1:35
[Simon] and if you’re looking for somewhere to charge your devices
1:36
It’s not as common as what we’re used to in North America so the place you’re gonna need to go the charge your stuff is
1:42
bear with me,
1:43
McDonald’s
1:44
*Pow*
1:45
*Gunshot*
1:46
*Gunshot*
1:47
*Angry dog bark*
1:48
[Martina] I know that sounds really weird
1:49
But if you have a laptop and you’re traveling and you’re looking to like dump your memory card and stuff McDonald’s is actually kind of
1:54
Like a workplace in Japan and it’s totally bumpin it’s always bumpin
1:58
Also if you come to McDonald’s make sure you check out their bizarre specials because Japan is constantly doing like special edition things for example cheese
2:05
bolognese fries
2:12
Fries in McDonald’s are always dope. From what we’ve heard, they’re the only country that actually fries their fries in fat
2:19
I don’t know if that’s real or just an urban legend, but they taste amazing
2:23
I was supposed to have the first bite. Notice how I ordered it and it had like one fork… For me
2:32
[Simon] Mmm my god [Martina] Mustache you
2:33
Hmm that’s actually really good whoa
2:37
Ketchup is so 1950. Ketchup, you’re out. That’s sweet and salty and cheesy damn
2:51
So let’s talk about the internet in Japan when you land in the airport make sure you pick up either a
2:57
Wi-Fi hot spot that you could bring with you everywhere you go
2:59
Or if your phone is unlocked you can also get a SIM card at the airport
3:04
It’s roughly around $10 today for unlimited internet access
3:08
Definitely get that or if you decided not to get a hot spot or a SIM card you can go to any Starbucks in Japan
3:13
For free Wi-Fi however it will make it difficult for you to use Google Maps outside of a Starbucks Google Maps is gonna
3:19
Give you everything you need to navigate Japan bus schedules Subway schedules
3:23
Walking locations to get you to the restaurants that you want to go to oh what’s that?
3:26
I hear you plan on just leeching off the network for free while in Japan
3:29
Hahahaha! Good luck with that
3:35
And one last thing if you are in a Starbucks
3:36
And you have a drink make sure you finish your drink and throw out your cup in the Starbucks
3:41
Because if you leave the Starbucks with a cup, good luck finding a garbage can anywhere in Tokyo
3:47
they just don’t exist
4:54
Damn it
5:44
One of the most overwhelming things about being in Japan is using the train system
6:04
[Martina] You know those videos you see on line of people like smushed inside of trains like with their arms
6:07
You might get pushed into a subway
6:08
Yeah, that’s gonna happen
6:10
So we’re gonna try to show you guys how to get on and off the train when you line up for the train
6:14
line up on both sides of the line don’t line up in the middle here
6:21
As soon as the train pulls in you step off to the side
6:24
People will get off through the middle and then once they’re all gone, then it’s your turn to get onto the subway
6:30
And then you go through the middle this way
6:32
Sounds complicated for some people I know but just follow that rule and you won’t be a jerk
6:41
[Simon] Uh, Toumorokoshi supu onegaishimasu (Corn soup, please)
6:45
[Simon] Uh, Sumoru. Hai (Small. Yes)
6:50
[Simon] Daijoubu desu. (It’s all right.)
6:55
[Simon] Arigatou gozaimasu. (Thank you very much.)
6:57
Before I get on the subway, I like to grab myself a high quality cup of warm corn soup right here on the subway platform
7:06
sounds weird
7:10
But it’s delicious it’s like corn on the cob in soup format
7:15
And you don’t get all the stuff in your teeth and look embarrassing to your friends
7:18
What are you saying getting a cup of soup by myself on the subway is embarrassing to my friends. It’s not like my friends watch this anyways
7:24
it’s not like I have
7:26
a lot of friends 🙁
7:50
Welcome to Tokyo Station
7:52
Odds are you will be taking a
7:53
Shinkansen or bullet train from this station if you’re heading out to Kyoto or Osaka or other parts of Japan
7:58
And if you are going to be taking a bullet train from here
8:00
I highly recommend that you come here an hour in advance at least because Tokyo Station is massive
8:07
It’s just really massive, and it’s very busy as well
8:11
There’s a very good chance you’re gonna get lost
8:14
And don’t be embarrassed about getting lost like even local Japanese people get super lost at this station because it’s very confusing
8:19
But why are we saying the importance of coming in hour in advance? The bullet trains leave ON. TIME.
8:25
[Simon] On the second
8:26
The second!
8:26
TO THE SECOND! If your train leaves at
8:28
6:02 there’s a dude with like a watch
8:31
He’s like. 58! 59!
8:33
And then the doors shut and it leaves so do not ruin your trip by showing up late
8:39
Getting lost and then missing your train be punctual ([Martina] Punctual) be responsible be an adults get your shit together
8:45
I need you to
8:47
get that shit together
8:49
