[Upbeat Instrumental Music] [Upbeat Instrumental Music] [Upbeat Instrumental Music] [Martina] So you booked your tickets to Japan you’re ready to come here But you know what it can be pretty overwhelming [Simon] We’re gonna give you our travel tips to Japan to make your trip a whole lot easier *Toilet Flushing* *Fart noise* [Simon] Ahhh… F*sheep noise*k Now what you’re gonna find in Japan is that public bathrooms are a little bit hard to find an easy way to find a public Bathroom if you really need to go is in convenience stores and convenience stores are everywhere you don’t even have to buy anything But you can leave something behind excuse me *toilet flushing* That actually wasn’t me flushing that was me just pushing the button that said flushing sounds Whew this seat’s warm. I have a question I want you to describe in the comment section below if you went into a bathroom in your convenience store in your home country What would it be like? would it have a warm toilet seat? Along with a bidet and flushing sounds? Would it be as clean as this? Please tell me I’d love to know. I’m sure it’s as clean as what we have here. God, I’m so comfortable, I don’t even wanna go. That’s it for this video I’m chilling in this bathroom [Simon] Now you might find if you’re using data roaming on your phone that it dies a lot mine certainly does [Martina] Yep [Simon] and if you’re looking for somewhere to charge your devices 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 bear with me, McDonald’s *Pow* *Gunshot* *Gunshot* *Angry dog bark* [Martina] I know that sounds really weird 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 Like a workplace in Japan and it’s totally bumpin it’s always bumpin 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 bolognese fries Fries in McDonald’s are always dope. From what we’ve heard, they’re the only country that actually fries their fries in fat I don’t know if that’s real or just an urban legend, but they taste amazing I was supposed to have the first bite. Notice how I ordered it and it had like one fork… For me [Simon] Mmm my god
[Martina] Mustachio Hmm that’s actually really good whoa Ketchup is so 1950. Ketchup, you’re out. That’s sweet and salty and cheesy damn So let’s talk about the internet in Japan when you land in the airport make sure you pick up either a Wi-Fi hot spot that you could bring with you everywhere you go Or if your phone is unlocked you can also get a SIM card at the airport It’s roughly around $10 today for unlimited internet access 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 For free Wi-Fi however it will make it difficult for you to use Google Maps outside of a Starbucks Google Maps is gonna Give you everything you need to navigate Japan bus schedules Subway schedules Walking locations to get you to the restaurants that you want to go to oh what’s that? I hear you plan on just leeching off the network for free while in Japan Hahahaha! Good luck with that And one last thing if you are in a Starbucks And you have a drink make sure you finish your drink and throw out your cup in the Starbucks Because if you leave the Starbucks with a cup, good luck finding a garbage can anywhere in Tokyo they just don’t exist Damn it One of the most overwhelming things about being in Japan is using the train system [Martina] You know those videos you see on line of people like smushed inside of trains like with their arms You might get pushed into a subway Yeah, that’s gonna happen So we’re gonna try to show you guys how to get on and off the train when you line up for the train line up on both sides of the line don’t line up in the middle here As soon as the train pulls in you step off to the side People will get off through the middle and then once they’re all gone, then it’s your turn to get onto the subway And then you go through the middle this way Sounds complicated for some people I know but just follow that rule and you won’t be a jerk [Simon] Uh, Toumorokoshi supu onegaishimasu (Corn soup, please) [Simon] Uh, Sumoru. Hai (Small. Yes) [Simon] Daijoubu desu. (It’s all right.) [Simon] Arigatou gozaimasu. (Thank you very much.) 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 sounds weird But it’s delicious it’s like corn on the cob in soup format And you don’t get all the stuff in your teeth and look embarrassing to your friends 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 it’s not like I have a lot of friends 🙁 Welcome to Tokyo Station Odds are you will be taking a Shinkansen or bullet train from this station if you’re heading out to Kyoto or Osaka or other parts of Japan And if you are going to be taking a bullet train from here I highly recommend that you come here an hour in advance at least because Tokyo Station is massive It’s just really massive, and it’s very busy as well There’s a very good chance you’re gonna get lost And don’t be embarrassed about getting lost like even local Japanese people get super lost at this station because it’s very confusing But why are we saying the importance of coming in hour in advance? The bullet trains leave ON. TIME. [Simon] On the second The second! TO THE SECOND! If your train leaves at 6:02 there’s a dude with like a watch He’s like. 58! 59! And then the doors shut and it leaves so do not ruin your trip by showing up late Getting lost and then missing your train be punctual ([Martina] Punctual) be responsible be an adults get your shit together I need you to get that shit together No? [Martina] Drake? I need- No?
