  1. I’ve been living here in japan for 3 years. I’m also start vlogging here and someday i wanna tour the whole japan and please support to my vlog. Thank you so much for sharing

  2. Amazing video journey! I was glued to it from start to finish! Only thing I missed was, some out-the-window footage of your ride on the shinkansen! Maybe next time. ( So many great places. Very beautiful. )

  3. smh your meant to spend the time buying anime merchandise, going to cons and getting new cosplays whilst being an ultra mega weeboo

  4. Having a rough hangover all day. Nothing looks, sounds, or feels good.
    This was calming and made me feel like less of a piece of shit.
    I might even try Panda Express now

  5. I absolutely loved watching this video. So well done and so clearly explained places to visit and see. I can't imagine how long this took to make but thank you for doing so it was superbly done and inspirational. I can't wait to visit Japan someday.

  6. At first I thought this was really cheap… then realized flight tickets aren't included, now it looks fair 😛

  7. I think I will do this itinerary when I visit Japan later, hopefully this year. My trip to Japan in November last year was cancelled because of this pandemic. I can't wait to visit Japan for 1st time. Thanks for this video

  8. Useful information and beautiful footage, great job! Brings back so many memories, would love to be back there again for another trip!

  9. Allan, your ability to take us with you to Japan through narrative and art style is simply amazing.

  10. What a masterpiece of a beautifully shot and edited video!!
    My life dream is to make a trip to Japan but your trip and tips took it to a whole another level!
    Watched it on the LG CX in 4K and was mesmerized by how amazing the whole footage is.
    Needless to say I saved it in my favorites playlist and definitely plan to use it as a guide.
    A thousand thanks for this amazing work!

  11. I went to Japan in April 2017. I started my tour inTokyo and went to all the places in this video and more .. I went all inclusive with a very good tour company..Absolutely was a great Hoilday and a great 3 weeks touring around this beautiful country.. I have never been to a country that is so clean everywhere.. And everyone is so polite and welcoming. It was the most expensive Hoilday I have had.. It was worth every penny.. I wanted to start all over again when I finished my tour… I would do it all over again.. Great country beautiful people.. I would have stayed there if I could… 🙏❤️🇬🇧

  12. Such an amazing video tour. The vibe is so beautiful and peaceful. You will feel as is you have just travelled yourself. thanks so much!

  13. Hola Allan! Love this video! I am traveling to Japan in Jan 2022 for about 13 days and I have a few questions if you don't mind: 1. How is Japan in Winter? I assume that gardens would not be convenient during this time of the year? 2. My itinerary was going to be a shorter version (perhaps Osaka, Kyoto, 1 more stop and Tokyo. Would you still recommend to do the regular train passes than the JR Rail? 3. How burnt out were you both when you arrive back to Tokyo? Was there enough time to rest including all the train rides? Last but not least and this is probably a long shot but any recommendations on Karaoke places? lol . Thank you for sharing this video, it really helps me plan my trip! Keep up the great content!

  14. how the hell did you get it so cheap? I was doing some planning with a friend that has been to japan many times for a 14 day trip, and we are around $2500 per person

  15. There’s no such thing as “micro-pigs,” FYI, they’re just baby pigs. Once they become too big, they’re probably killed… So I wouldn’t support those establishments.

  16. Amazing video, can’t stop thinking about it since I watched last night. So in planning my next trip (my wife and I did 12 days in Tokyo before COVID), I would like to use this as a template since it covers all the bases I’d like to see. My question: mind sharing the actual travel gear you used? I’m wondering what was the main bag you used, whether it was checked luggage, and maybe what was the smaller bag you switched to once you stashed your stuff in your hotel(s). I’d really appreciate this insight! Thanks so, so much for such amazing content!

  17. Japan 🇯🇵 is like another 🌏 planet 🗾 I love this country. And its people are accessible and hardworking and polite. But Japan is not a paradise, is a country that has its flaws and Its disadvantages like all countries. Like suicide.
