The videos are so good and beautiful it’s like there is a full NHK team with you to shoot them 🙂
A bit too polished and promotional for my taste (are these vids sponsored?) but great info nonetheless. Excellent job. +

Gil Goldshlager says:

Nice! waiting for the next episodes 🙂

Noah III says:

This is awesome thank you for this. My girlfriend and I are going to Japan in April for 3 weeks, our plan is to go to Tokyo, Hakone, Osaka and Kyoto. We were going to just go straight there via train or flight but now that you’ve shown a new way to get there I’m going to plan to go this route! Thank you!

Great job on the video editing! Very short, concise, and really easy to digest. Plus it’s not the typical Tourist route

TheBaldr says:

I’m not to enthusiastic about the itinerary. Both the monkey part and train museum seem pretty similar to the ones in Kyoto. With the luxurious ryokans in Kyoto, seems like your just wasting your days traveling by train. *Edit: Actually the Kyoto railway museum is larger than the one on Saitama.

Tolmekian says:

I hope you visited the aquarium in Niigata, absolutely loved it, had few people compared to Okinawa’s so you can really take your time and enjoy everything.

Hoan Ly says:

Amazing. Looking forward to your next video. Thank you

Karedras says:

Thank you so much for your ever inspired trip highlights! Onsen towns are the apex of the Japanese leisure culture for me, and with Ikaho and Shibu you give a great glimpse of what a top rank onsen experience is all about. I can’t wait to visit these places. 🙂
