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!

On the Kyoto thing, I 100% agree. It is very crowded but it wasn't always crowded because I went many years ago back when Arashiyama was completely deserted of people and no one was at pure water temple XD. I do think its very disappointing because too many people are there which ruins the vibe... but at the same time, those people are just like us who want to experience the place. and I'm sure people like us don't want to keep such beatiful places to ourselves.

Where I live in a Swedish suburb, bikes changes owners a lot. We have an unofficial saying: "Skratta inte åt en blatte på en cykel, det kan vara din cykel"
literal translation: "Don't laugh at a wog/hood rat on a bike, it could be your bike"

I think my mom would have a heart-attack if she ever went to japan. lol. Cuz she was uncomfortably crowded with the fact that there was 3...whole...houses... in our close neighborhood. Like... only 50 meeters between them. So she moved into the woods where she wouldn't have any neighbors within a mile....and now she's talking about the nightmare of how they're building an apartment building less than a kilometre from her. xD

I am really curious to see if Japan is as bad as it sounds tho. People always complained about how bad London was during rush hours, but it wasn't really all that bad. You might have to wait for the two or tree first subways going away to get on a subway that wasn't stuffed, but since they go with like a minute apart, it's no big deal. (If you just go a bit early)

Ok I live in Memphis!
Also the way Memphis is spayed is unplanned. That means that if you travel to Memphis and you drive through a relatively nice rich neighborhood say Poplar for example you could wind up in a really bad neighborhood like orange Mound if you go past University of Memphis on the other side of the tracks. There's also a lot of gang activity crime in Memphis. So really to be honest, if you're not out there looking for Crime it's not going to look for you USUALLY. So long as you stay in the tourist areas you should be okay. Tips to avoid being robbed in the first place would be not taking your wallet out and having a lot of money on you. I would suggest having a GreenDot card. I would also suggest for you to have a safe in your hotel if you have anything of value. Also, don't stay at a cheap hotel if you have a lot of money and valuables and you want to show off don't do that here. If you want a nice cheap room rent the Motel 6 here, the Motel 6 on Sycamore View is nice I work there you might even meet me, but don't flash money around and don't make yourself seem noticeable as a tourist too much. The tourist areas like Graceland are incredibly police protected so you're probably going to be completely safe on Graceland premises if you go see Elvis, but be aware that Elvis Presley in general is a bad neighborhood once you leave the tourist area. If someone is selling things on the street then I would suggest that you don't even attempt to talk to them because there's a good chance that whatever they're selling might be stolen and the last thing you want to do is get caught up in illegal activity without even realizing. Memphis is a really nice town, the people are great here, but you also have to be aware that this is a high crime area and you have to be preventative about what you do in the first place. If you are in a very cheap or poor area it would be suggested that if you decided to live here that you get a dog a very large dog. and probably a gun to if you live alone like I do. I am currently in the process of getting a 9 mm because I don't feel safe living alone.... Nothing bad has happened but I still want one under my pillow

Kyoto sounds like Venice, beautiful but touristy. When I went to Venice I was able to find some really lovely peaceful places a bit out the way (parts that were mostly for locals, or just round the corner from the big tourist areas) so we got to experience what it should be like minus the people and souvenir shops/stalls. Does Kyoto have any places like that too? (If that makes sense? :) )

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
