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).

    I love watching your videos so much! They are so funny and informative and I am from the UK and have been learning Japanese for a few years now. My dream is to go there and hopefully live there for awhile. 💜 Also a random question, what is the music at the beginning of this video? I heard it and fell in love with it. Thanks ☺️

    This honestly sounds like paradise, escaping the merry go round of modern life to a secluded mountain temple and walking the path to the shrine in perfect harmony in the hopes of self discovery and reflection. Amazing video man. When I visit Japan I must try this.

    In the west, these people would be called hippies. It sounds mean but think of what people would call someone saying things like "I need to feel nature" or "on the mountain, I become an animal"... You don't even need to take in the meditation part to call them hippies.

    Sir Chis, remember how you once said you were convinced Ryotoro was trying to kill you? I'm pretty sure calling him Rissotoro isn't helping your odds any.

    Right know I am 20 years old and I am having a crisis with my life where I am lost with my self and all I do are stupid decisions that make me sad and get even more lost with my self, so I am caught in a loop where I cant find the answers I seek.
    The moment you whent to the forest dressed in white, showing the beauty of the place, what the monk had to say about himself, and everything else, I remember that I used to enjoy the present and I didnt think about the future as much as I do now, I knew who I was and what I wanted. So it opened my eyes, I know this strange but thanks, somehow a video of this trip made me realise what I need to do, so I can become how I once was and stop this loop of stupid decisions.
    Also sry for the spelling errors, english is my second language as I live on Argentina, and we speak Spanish.

    I never thought about the fact that traditional japanese houses are so badly insulated. how did they keep warm before electric heaters? and yes, that is a serious question, because i think open fires or coal pans would pose a serious fire hazard in homes with tatami floors

    If you do go back to the mountain lodge in summer time. Be sure to film it. It can be a sequel to this video.
    1) Escaping To A Secluded Japanese Mountain.
    2) Return To A Secluded Japanese Mountain.
    Maybe even make it a trilogy with a third and final part.
    3) Jumping Off A Secluded Japanese Mountain.

    And now you have to feature natsuki and ryotaro in identical clothes standing side by side in a hotel corridor saying in unison “Come play with us..” just to show viewers how they are not the same person, but actually something far more disturbing.
