So I got to Okayama to stay the night before I head to Naoshima the next day. I didn't have anywhere to stay and the capsule hotel that was close to the station didn't want me there because of tattoos so I stayed at a Media Cafe Popeye. These are now my favorite place to stay in Japan. It's got Manga, Magazines, Electronic Darts and other games, you can shower there, it's cheap and the floors in the rooms are fairly comfy.

After the Tokyo Game Show we decided to go to the Zauo restaurant in Shinjuku... I've always wanted to go to this restaurant. The staff gave me a paste ball which pretty much guarantees that you catch a fish vs the tiny shrimp you get. But I found out that the one I really wanted to go to was the Zauo in Shibuya because I wanted to see if I could snag a shark! Even though you can't eat them.

Episode 2 of my 2nd trip to Japan. Today we are going to go to Nagoya from Tokyo to visit some people (who are now my friends) in Nagoya that messaged me on couchsurfing.com to stay with them for a while. What great people and if you can do couchsurfing anywhere you go, it's a much better experience than staying at a hotel for sure!

This video goes from Nice and happy to Dark and angry. Beware there are swears at the end. After leaving my AirBnB in Aormori I took the train to Hakodate and I went under a cool underwater tunnel called the Seikan Tunnel. Since I was collecting train tickets I stayed in Hakodate for a while instead of going straight away to sapporo because the train that was leaving didn't give the blue ticket. Walked around a bit and then went into full on RAGE mode because I couldn't get any contact from my AirBnB host in Sapporo.

Including such hits as: HOO HAA and Y-M-SHI-A. I had to delete the livin la vida loca song because of a copyright claim for it being the spanish version, even though it's clearly the japanese version. I found an Oktoberfest when wandering around in Sapporo

I stayed at a backpackers guesthouse in Naoshima after visiting all of the art houses there. I lost my JRPass but I was able to find it with how awesome people in Japan are at returning things.

I booked an airbnb in aomori. They told me to get off the bus at one stop so I did, but I did not know that there was an almost identical named stop right before the one I was supposed to get off at. So I ended up walking around forever trying to follow the directions that were given to my but from the wrong stop.

Somehow this got recorded in 15 fps (drunk?) Drinking cheaper than bar drinks in the washroom and following the Japanese jesus to our next location. Uploading as an extra because maybe if you don't watch the video and listen to the audio it could be funny. Sorry about the eye hurting 15fps.

Just a drunken walk and talk going home from wherever I was. It was so nice for me. I hope it's nice for you. It's a video where you don't really have to watch, just listen.
This is Scales Pond in PEI. I fished here ever since I can remember. I was away for a lot of years and when I came back for a visit, the pond was gone and I couldn't go fishing. Some years later, I came back for another visit and it was restored and I caught some fish. Today, I decided to take a video of the place and even though I'd much rather do it in the summer, I'm only here in the winter right now.

I went to Tokyo Game Show 2015 with my friend Yushi. The lines were long and it was very crowded. We waited in one line for FFXIV and played and beat the Ravana challenge. Won a t-shirt signed by the producer. Because X and O buttons are reversed in Japan it was tough, also all of the abilities were in Japanese and the game as well. We only had 2 minutes to set everything up.
Decided to play some Project Diva X after a few beers (8) and I hadn't played this game in months so I wasn't expecting to do very well at all. The tough thing about recording via the PS4 is that it will record the video but not the audio so here I have my external camera mic right in front of the cheap tinny sounding 24" walmart tv. Cheers.
