Escaping to a Secluded Japanese Mountain

  • Опубликовано: 13 мар 2018
  • People often romanticise the idea of retreating to a secluded mountain, to a temple or shrine. Now I can see why. (Even if the tranquility is somewhat disturbed by the presence of Ryotaro).

    Well...your videos are absolutely brilliant and since telly is pretty much complete rubbish I'm really just cuffed to bits with this content...that's it, you should be a Japanese travel presenter on say the BBC then regular t.v. would stink just a little bit less. So how'd I do, seeing that here in America we havn't spoken English since we had our falling our with old George? Seriously, really am enjoying your channel but its got me wanting to visit Japan even more. Cheers from So. Cal.

    Oh man, that vague answer now makes me really want to know if Natsuki and Ryotaro actually DO dislike each other or something...
    On a side note: great video, I've never seen snow in real life, I wish to do so one day; but that's a difficult wish to fulfill living in México City (we get some crappy storms with ice hailing AT BEST =(...)

    Hey Chris, I am going to Japan for a Year at the end of September and I really want to go skiing, but I don't really have the space to take winter equipment with me. How is your experience with buying warm winter jackets in Japan? Do they have bigger sizes for Europeans or is it hard to find the right size? By the way I love the videos man. Thanks for the entertainment

    i had to comment that i would love to see a movie called "Gon with the rice" so long as it portrays real 17 or 18th century Japanese migrating on horseback through perral in a sort of zigzag motion till they reach there destination despite all there obstacles along the way only to have one or so caricature live to the 1990"s to tell there story before they die...

    That snow and the forest looks absolutely gorgeous. I would love to visit norther Japan someday. I thought Japan was one big crowded city of concrete and steel and asphalt. Why aren't there more people living in these places? Can one purchase land here cheap, or is it all protected by the government? This area and Hokkaido both look like a great place to buy a plot of land and build a cabin and retire to.

    I'm sitting here, it's 8am. I havent slept. I havent got anything to do. Just feeling this lost kind of detachment from the world around me. And then I watch this, and that mountain is so breathtakingly beautiful that I actually start to weep. It's been so long since I wanted something. Really felt a need to do something or experience something. But this... I *need* this in a way I cant properly express. Somehow, someway, I have to do this.
