AIZU ADVENTURE Part 2 | Northern Japan Travel

good morning guys excuse my voice if it's a little raspy today we had a very exciting night of karaoke last night I'm gonna give you guys a quick tour of my room and after that we're gonna head to a castle and then we're gonna do some martial arts so today's pretty fun I can't wait but yeah I'm gonna give you a little tour of my yokan room here this was my futon from last night while I was having dinner they came in and they set it up for me so this is for one person but if you have more people staying in your room there are tons of futons over here in the closet so it's probably enough for at least four people in here so you can use more if you like if you'd like to make a bigger bed over here in the closet we've got some yukata and some overcoats here it's pretty chilly so I used one of these yesterday it's really nice just something simple to keep you a little warmer when you're wearing your yukata a safe down on the floor there this part is always my favorite see what kind of snacks they got going on it looks like they have some black sesame go bowl which is a root vegetable English's burdock root I'm not sure if you guys are familiar with what that is I never knew about it until I came to Japan but it's a really yummy like kind of tough vegetable similar to a carrot but it doesn't taste like a carrot but you know what I mean some gobo tea some tea made out of that same vegetable these ones here scared the heck out of me they say not though on them sweet not though and I was like oh god why why not doh but then I opened it up and there's really good beans like to sweet beans they don't taste like natto at all look hipbone a huge – really huge beans you know they taste like they taste similar uncle if you've ever had the sweet bean paste they're really good I promise I don't touch like not though so let me scared if you see these over here we've got a nice view of outside pretty high up I'm on the sixth floor this little area down here has a fridge some glasses hot water pot for making tea and the little tea set there's a TV but who wants to watch TV when you're at a joke on as so many other cool things to do in here there is a shower room and a washroom in here then a little area for getting ready in the morning with like the usual hairdryer awesome face wash face toner stuff like that alright let's go get some breakfast cool so they've got a buffer here with soup rice and pickles okay.
