About :

We've noticed a lot of things while traveling across Japan. This video covers safety and crowds/how busy places are. We have a lot of other things to cover but there's so much to say about each individual topic that we thought it was better to provide more information rather than be brief and get everything done in one video but leave out a lot of details! We have a lot of tips and advice (especially in the next video), so hopefully these are helpful!

My grandmother falls for scams all the time and my mom is constantly scolding her and has to fix my grandmother’s mistakes.

I remember opening my wallet in Japan to pay for food and 3 university students behind me gasped and facepalmed. I had no idea how much I actually had in Yen (USD2000+) and soon realised that why they were so shocked. Even though there wasn't anybody around they didn't do anything fishy.

The only places in Japan where I feel hesitant about opening my wallet or leaving my bag unprotected is in areas like Roppongi or Kabukicho or anywhere else with a large foreign population. Sad but true.

Japan definitely is more safe than other countries but...I have been pick pocketed three times (once full month cash salary...they used to give it in cash directly rather than to the account) and have also had place broken into more than once (nothing to steal but guess they couldn't believe a foreigner would be so poor) , had my iPad taken (stupid me as I used my bag as a place saver...as do many other people), and have also had the chickan thing. Once an easy target, it seems more likely yo happen again; I have heard this from others as well. All the same, I feel RELATIVELY safe and do not worry much about walking out even alone in public generally safe touristy places at night, something I probably would be, sorry to say, cautious about as a female in the US.

~10:30 - the more Japan travel vlogs I've been watching the more I want to go to these smaller, less touristy-places. I mean, there's billions of photos of Tokyo, Kyoto, all the big tourist hotspots. But some small town with a fantastic mountain onsen? Spending a night on a farm in the countryside? Watching a master craftsman create a one-of-a-kind artwork? THOSE are some cool stories worth sharing!
(Of course, I'd still like to do the big cities, but not for my whole stay).

So about the safety in Japan thing, I've never been to Japan so I don't really know how true this is,
But I'm a fangirl cough and like I keep tabs on my fave band's concerts, including in Japan. And it amazes me how there's this one time, apparently it rains during like, queuing up waiting for the concert hall to be opened. And then fans just, leave their bags at their queue spot with an umbrella out in the open? Like, HOW CAN IT NOT GET STOLEN AND STUFF? Is Japan really just that safe???

Hey hey there Rachel and Jun, I'm a big fan, been sub for I think a couple years now, and always enjoy watching, also extremely applicable and useful information, you both seem like such genuinely people, likable, interesting to listen to and generally cool, I am from Canada myself, a university student about to complete my first degree in biology, I have never been outside of Canada but I have lived in and been all over Canada, it's beautiful by the way I'd recommend it to anyone lol, it's the second biggest country in the world and we only have 35 million people lol, you look in any direction in most places and you will see trees and nature for as long as the curve of the earth reveals, it's beautiful to say the least, especially if you're in love with nature as much as me, lol but back to my original point, traveling, never been outside of Canada but my core characteristics and personality is that of an adventurer I have large travel Ambitions, history / culture is my favorite passion in my life, one of many, and I've always been in love with Japan in particular, ever since I read my first book on ancient world history when I was 3, it was the history / culture and the beauty of the land that Drew me in first but then the more I learn the more I loved, and soon actually December 8th I will be leaving from Toronto here in Canada and landing in Tokyo I'll be spending a month-and-a-half there backpacking, doing a tour of as much as I can see, I have seven major dreamtrips and endless minor dreamtrips and my number one is Japan,so I'm dipping my toes into the world traveling with my number one dream trip and I never plan on stopping, long-term I plan on living in Japan, ideally in Hokkaido, I love winter lol, and snow country is, well, the Land of Snow lol, I really want to see those little mini snow plows haha I bought my ticket on purpose in the winter so that I would be there in my favorite season but I also plan on doing a bicycle tour of the entire country from kagoshima to wakkanai and everything in between in another trip probably next summer, as well as working on a farm or two, study at a Japanese University, teaching some English, and among other things I also have a long-term goal of becoming native Japanese level fluent in Japanese, and possibly meeting a nice Japanese girl lol just wanted to say hi and introduce myself and say im a big fan and in passing also ask if you had any advice/recommendations on my upcoming trip based off your own vast experience being in Japan as far as maybe what to do, and what to expect at that particular time, since I only have a month-and-a-half I'm probably going to regionalize to only as far south as Kobe and then double back, after heading down from Tokyo, back North into tohoku on the Sea of Japan side, and then up to Hokkaido, no pressure just anything that pops into your head, I really want to eat some Christmas cake lol, be well, keep rocking it and both of you never stop being awesome, see ya see ya, Marcel "the samurai" from Canada 🗾⛩️🛫🌨️❄️😄

About the getting yelled at thing: in China (I know we're taking about Japan but whatever) I was with some friends and a guy friend of mine yelled out "China baby!" As part of a song he was singing or something and some old guy on the side of the road got really excited and yelled back "CHINA BABY." And it was adorable

8:55 I think people taking art pictures don't really wake up early or anything, they just set the exposure duration to a very long time so that, since people move, the camera doesn't see them long enough to record them whereas the buildings are totally immobile so they get picked up. At least that's how you take pictures of overcrowded places.

I hate how scammers take advantage of the elderly! D:< I live in the US and there had been this one time when some scammers called my grandma and told her they took my counsin (they actually didnt) and if she did not pay them a couple thousands they would kill him. My grandma was really terrified and spent the whole day running around everywhere trying to gather up all the money they asked for but thankfully my mom was able to stop her right before she sent the money to them >:c

in Japan I got my bicycle stolen before even though I locked it. but luckily it was found by the police I reported - after I moved to NY 😂

I've been to Kyoto once when I was in middle school, and yeah I found it quite crowded too. I'm not from a crowded area, I'm from Gunma, so it was pretty stressful and I don't really remember about the school excursion. I gotta revisit there sometime.

I was travelling in Japan and i was in the train..it was very busy and all the seats are occupied and even though there was an elderly man in his 80s standing in front of the office lady sitting comfortably..she didnt give up the seat for the elderly man and the others sitting did the same....very disappointing
