  1. Nothing strange in cooperation with the police… At the end of the day, they are there to protect you..
    Same about per person charge. Why should I pay same fare for only one person in a room, as I would for a couple??

  2. Well done, we live on Okinawa, my wife is Japanese and we enjoy travel on the mainland. Tokyo is awesome, shinkanzen and everything. I have never been stopped but when I have stopped a policeman for information, I always tell them I am a retired policeman from Los Angeles and show my badge LOL, I also belong to International Police Association and even without saying anything the police are always polite. Unless you just are one of those people who cannot resist complaining and Japan is not the place to complain loudly in front of the police.

  3. I learned so much before visiting Japan myself, thank you! Please check out part one of our trip. https://youtu.be/cCrY_F9OAmk

  4. Hm, In Europe isnt it like 18yrs to be able to buy and drink alcohol? In East Europe the trinking age is like 4ys so yeah

  5. I agree. Japan is still a cash based country. I remember tryjng to dine at a rustic resto to experience ramen when I was in Shibuya and lil did I know I had to take out cash because they preferred "okane" instead. Hahaha

  6. Here in Brazil we also have this modern system of trains. But we call Bus and are also have this first world "pack people like cigarrets" inside, very modern and advanced. Oh! We also don't tip because workers here already gain too little to be astonish with so much money at once, you know, we like think in other first <3

  7. Hey guys, I'm a German Videocreator and I made Videos from Asia, if you need some inspiration you can check out my channel.

  8. Got in trouble with the police for drinking in our car in the parking lot of a grocery store. Made me take a breath test and drove me home. Hassled me for like two hours. It was in a small town. I was drinking a beer and smoking and someone called the police on me. Be careful, in the states as long as you are not caught driving generally no one cares.

  9. Which capsule hotel is that? I’ve never seen one like that. I’ve stayed in 9h hotels but the one you showed looks great.

  10. ICカードは作るのにちょっとお金かかるけど帰る時にカード返せば返金してもらえるカードもあるし、お土産として持って帰っても良いと思う!誰か英語に訳せない?

  11. I see lots of people on youtube saying that tipping in japan is rude, but its not rude its just not part o their culture

  12. I feel as though you make the trains out to be far more unpleasant than they actually are… when I stayed for two weeks none of them smelt like alcohol.

  13. Well, in Jakarta, Indonesia, we ban alcohol drinks altogether (except for a few places like bars, clubs, etc)

  14.

  15. I just don’t like smoking because it also kills the people around you so if someone is trying to make a good choice by not smoking it’ll be really hard to avoid inhaling all that smoke and it’s a huge turn off smelling like cigarettes.

  16. Save so much time to calculate the tip godamn niga how long does it take you to calculate 15% out of $10? Anywho tipping sucks but its cultural and in most bars no tipping (usa) will get you a fuck off instead of here is your second drink

  17. Here in germany the legal drinking age for low alcohol drinks like beer and wine is 16 while for all the other stronger stuff you need to be 18 (18 means you're an adult in general here)
    Cashiers are required to check your ID if you look too young and will get fired if they get caught selling alcoholic drinks aswell as candies to minors

  18. About the drinking age: I think its not very strict in japan tbh. In germany (where the drinking age for beer is 16 and for harder alcohol 18) you usually get asked by the store clerk to show your ID so they can confirm your age. In many cases you dont get the alcohol when you're too young and you get asked alot for your ID even if you're looking like an 20 y/o.

  19. Visitors will notice that Japanese SHOULD NOT be grouped into "generalizations", which means, not all things mentioned in this video will be correct. EXAMPLES: Japanese people do eat and drink & walk, do so next to you in a train (which can be rude); many have tattoos so the stigma is no longer valid. YES, traveling in the country-side will remain more "traditional" but in most major cities things have change dramatically; smoking outside is NOT PROHIBITED, it is prohibited in some neighborhoods only, not in Japan as a whole; 1st and last cars in trains for women… not true, some lines have the "women only" car in the center. So a more appropriate explanation is look for the marked car that says "women only". But, understand that the car is only meant for women during rush hours. Not weekends, etc.; AirBnb is strictly regulated in Japan, so do not expect private dwellings, mostly licensed places like hotels, lodges, etc will be listed; in Japan (non-citizens) are expected to always travel with identification, so this is very important… never leave hotel or walk the streets without identification (you will probably be held and questioned) if you have no proof of legal travel documents.

  20. I’ve never had an issue walking and eating in Japan. Like, never. I do it all the time. Never even had someone take a second glance at me. No idea why people are so worried about this 🤣

  21. I wish America would stop tipping also. I think both customers would be happy and employees getting paid more would be happier.

  22. I'm from Brazil and I get to laugh when you say that police asking for id and asking question might sound ridiculous
    Here they put a gun in your face and screams at you to put your hands up, then they touch you to search for guns, then after they conclude you're not armed they aks (sometimes not politely) for documents, sometimes asks to unlock your phone and look at your private conversations. If you complain you may get beaten in extreme cases

  23. I was stopped by police in Japan, because i was eating and walking. The officer asked me where i got the box of chicken nuggets i was munching on, and i told him from the "Family mart" down the street. He thanked me and continued on his way to family mart lol. Guess he mustve been hungry lol.

  24. In New York or more the Bronx not many places accept cards fast food and certain stores most restaurants but any other spots you need cash and with food not many people eat while walking maybe snacks but I prefer to sit and eat

  25. Thank you sooo much for this video!!! 👍👍👍 That was the most detailed, but at the same time not too long one I've seen by far. Thank you especially for tip with the tattoo friendly bath houses, I will go to Japan next year and want experience as much as I can and don't want to worry about my tattoos 😊. Will definetly check out your Homepage for more info. Greets from Germany 👋

  26. I have a clear view on tipping in the US. You give good service my get a good tip, bad service? Bad tip, or no tip at all.

  27. It's 18 to buy booze here in NZ. Even spirits. But stores are borderline Nazi's about ID'ing people. I'm almost 30 and look like a jumberjack but I still get asked for ID to buy my beer. It's a pain in the ass but it's also a massive fine for the business if they sell to minors, so i guess they're just keeping it legal tegal.

  28. tap the OK button if you're 20 or over? Dude a 12 year old can do that lmao. I live in Ontario,
    I have a pretty nice beard but whenever i'm in an LCBO in a big town i get carded.

  29. Being from the UK I was amazed when a guy lit a cigar when I was at the Tokyo Whiskey Library. Your not really allowed to smoke anywhere indoors in the UK.

  30. Never use a bike if you don't know for sure who the registered owner is.

    I once had a flat tire, and decided to borrow one of the many hundreds of unclaimed bikes left on the campus parking lot. Unluckily me, there was a police check around the corner. I spent 5 hours at a Koban Police station, detained, interrogated and forced to write a confession. At 23 pm they let me go, while the officer who first detained me wished me well with a 'please enjoy your stay in Japan'!

  31. Going to top security prisons and learn the rules is easier than going to Japan.
    I love Japan and love to visit Japan but now by watching your videos I am reconsidering going there.
    It is not that hot shot country really.
    I always have so much fun with people in Vietnam, Thailand, Philippine and China.
    I've been there many times and people are lovely, friendly and easy.
    Why should I put myself at the edge of going to prisons or get insult and humiliation.
    By watching your videos I feel I must go to Japan with machine gun to protect myself.
    Or only your videos are too scarry? 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔
