  • Episode 11

  • [music]

  • [typing]

  • My sad, sad setup. Everybody say hi!

  • [laughter]

  • So today is January...

  • [pause]

  • 7th, I believe?

  • And I am going to go create,

  • because I am so happy to be back.

  • I just feel really inspired by everything,

  • because Japan is so beautiful. There's so much to see.

  • I'm going to Jiyugaoka, because I've never been there before

  • and Jiyugaoka is very European style location

  • in Tokyo, so I'm really, really excited to see what it looks like.

  • There's lots of cute cafés and things like that.

  • So, we're going to go edit and take photos and take videos, and just do some creative things because

  • I've been yearning for this. I've been sitting on my butt for two weeks just eating food and I cannot live that life.

  • I impulsively bought this outfit today, if you can see.

  • [laughter]

  • I was like, "Instagram!" and so I just bought this yesterday and I'm excited to just feel good and

  • go out. My pneumonia is gone and I haven't been coughing. I worked out yesterday, I feel good,

  • This is good. Everything is good! So I'm like, a crazy person right now.

  • [music]

  • Where do I begin?

  • I have no words to describe the feeling I felt stepping outside to explore somewhere

  • after going home for a short time.

  • The sounds, the people, the smiles I got just walking into a small mom and pop shop

  • on the streets of Jiyugaoka.

  • I don't think I've felt more alive than I did this day.

  • [Japanese]: It looks delicious.

  • Shop Clerk [Japanese]: Your Japanese is very good.

  • [Japanese]: Thank you.

  • [Japanese]: I've lived in Japan for about 6 years.

  • [Japanese]: But, I'm a teacher, so...

  • [Japanese]: I'm starting to forget Japanese.

  • Living in Japan for so long has been like a marriage.

  • I fell in love, and I stayed.

  • I would never dream of divorcing this life.

  • No matter where you are in the world,

  • there will always be trials and tests

  • I've experienced the good and the bad side of life here

  • and when you experience those types of things

  • that's when you can call somewhere home.

  • [music]

  • I'm in Jiyugaoka now

  • Oh my god, it's been so long since I've vlogged in Japan

  • I don't even know what to do anymore.

  • I'm feeling the creative juices flowing.

  • Ash: Don't say juices.

  • Why?

  • Wow, this place is beautiful.

  • So, I guess it's the most desirable place to live in Tokyo.

  • It was built in 1920

  • but then it was demolished in the world war

  • and then rebuilt again

  • Ash: Welcome to the history channel with Kelly.

  • [laughter]

  • I'm kind of craving some Japanese food or something, I don't know

  • [music]

  • My first meal back in Japan and it was tonkatsu,

  • which is basically breaded and fried pork cutlet.

  • I was so excited!

  • I honestly love hidden away, small, traditional restaurants like these, because...

  • the atmosphere really connects you to the culture and brings that authentic feeling to your travels

  • or your life abroad, and I feel I need to recharge my passion for Japan by going to traditional restaurants

  • or shrines, festivals, and other Japanese things as often as I can.

  • [music]

  • Yes!

  • [Japanese]: Thank you for the meal.

  • [music]

  • Ooh, fancy.

  • This is Bareburger.

  • Look, it's Ryuji's name!

  • [laughter]

  • I love him! Just kidding.

  • Ash: Wow.

  • You can take a picture there, next to the bike.

  • We just took a photo in front of these cute little lemon trees over here

  • and there's like a little bike here

  • and this little alleyway

  • Just took a bunch of shots, and now we're moving on to the next one

  • because today is an Instagram day

  • Nobody kicked us out, we asked if we could...

  • I asked the guy if I could shoot here and he said yeah.

  • It's a promotion for them, which, I don't understand why people don't want you to shoot.

  • [music]

  • We found a vending machine that has fish in it. What?

  • You don't drink that though, right?

  • Do not drink this, it is a vending machine for dashi.

  • Oh, it's dashi! Oh my god, that's so interesting!

  • [music]

  • Guys, look behind me.

  • There are these girls... [laughing]

  • There were these girls that wanted to take a picture with me, so we had to stop.

  • But like, if you look behind me, this is a very famous spot.

  • Like everywhere online if I type in Jiyugaoka, this is it.

  • It's so gorgeous here.

  • Look at this.

  • Ash is trying to find good angles right now.

  • I need to cross the bridge. I'm coming, I just need to pick my stuff up.

  • We're exploring this little alcove over here of European-ness.

  • And it's so pretty. It's beautiful. There's so much to see here.

  • I really love this place a lot.

  • We're going to head over to the tea house, which I'm really excited about

  • because you can go through that, and I've seen it on the internet, so

  • I'm excited to go check it out. I don't know what I'm talking about right now.

  • I found myself putting down my camera a lot, engulfed in the beauty of Japan once again.

  • And I was in such a trance with all the buildings and people and city nature, I feel like none of my videos or photos do Japan any justice.

  • Ash: She wants to vlog.

  • Ash: All she wants to do is vlog.

  • This is so cool. Is this the entrance?

  • I don't know. Is it through here?

  • This is so cool.

  • [music]

  • We came to this Japanese-style house, and it's basically a tea house where you can get Japanese

  • I think it's called wagashi or something, Japanese sweets, and coffee and tea, and everything, and

  • it looks so cool. I love this kind of stuff. The atmosphere is just really beautiful.

  • [music]

  • So I got my matcha tea. This is the best matcha ever.

  • It's so good. And then I got this little Japanese, like, confectionary... is that how you say it?

  • Confectionary sweet, and it is a Japanese wagashi so it is, like... I don't know what it's made out of, it's like...

  • mochi, I think. So, I'm going to try it right now.

  • Mmm!

  • It's mochi.

  • It's so hard to eat.

  • So many people die on this on New Year's every single year. Especially old people, because they can't swallow it.

  • Fun fact.

  • [laughter]

  • Ash: That was a fun fact.

  • [music]

  • So cute.

  • Look at all the fruit!

  • So we're in this New Zealand/Australian café called Latte Graphic

  • and it's actually pretty affordable. I thought it was going to be pretty expensive, but...

  • I'm gonna get a coffee and a salad.

  • It's my first day back doing anything. I'm so recharged.

  • This is a nice place. Look at this.

  • [music]

  • I've gotta get a shot of your penis coffee.

  • And I got this delicious salad! Oh my god, it looks so good. I like how they assume that we're gonna share.

  • I'm offended.

  • [music]

  • So we spent a really long and frustrating few hours in there.

  • Anyway, I'm gonna go home because I'm tired and it's late and I have to work tomorrow, and this is... I don't know how this vlog is gonna turn out.

  • [typing]

  • Hey guys, it's the next day and I look like crap right now because I just worked for an hour this morning,

  • and I'm on my break now. Actually, I'm working today very close, so I just went home.

  • I just want to say that like I went through the worst reverse culture shock when I went back to the States

  • and I'm going to talk about... it's like worthy of a whole video.

  • I just wanted to say that I'm really happy and grateful that I live in such a beautiful country.

  • I have a job. I have a career. I'm living on my own. This is everything that I've wanted in my life.

  • This was my goal when I graduated. This is everything, and I'm very grateful and happy about it.

  • As you guys may know, I have such a love for this country and as of now, I want to live in Japan indefinitely.

  • There's a lot on my mind and I think I'm gonna have to make a video about that as well, because

  • there's so much that I want to tell you, and I think that it's important for you guys to know what I'm

  • struggling with as well, and how I'm going to resolve these issues. Because there's a lot that I'm learning

  • about myself, and there's a lot that I'm learning how to do myself.

  • I want to make this a positive thing. I want to turn the negatives and the struggles that I have into

  • something positive. Thank you guys so much. I love Japan. I don't plan on leaving, and I will explain

  • why, as well. There's so much to talk about. There's so much... so much content that I just want to put up.

  • for you guys to see what it's lke to really live here because it's not perfect, but I love it. No where is

  • perfect. If I moved to Germany, if I moved to Korea, if I moved anywhere else, there will always be struggles.

  • If I moved back to the States, there will be struggles. Everywhere that you go in the world

  • life happens. I know there's a lot of people that are like "she's complaining all the time". You know what?

  • If I went back to the States, I'd be complaining all the time too. So, it doesn't even matter. Like, complaining

  • is like a release of stress for me. Of course, it's good to minimize complaining, but it's... it's gonna happen.

  • That's human. That's life. So, I love this country. I'm happy, and I will explain why in another video.

  • But, yesterday was the best day ever because I was able to just get on a train, explore, be by myself.

  • I love being by myself. I love being independent. That's just who I am now, and Japan has changed me so much.

  • And like I said, that'll be said in another video. Probably the next one. So please stay tuned, and please

  • keep watching because there's so much I want to tell you guys. I want to give value to people not only

  • who want to move to Japan or want to travel to Japan, but people who are just, you know, watching

  • my channel in general. All of these things are... are something that you can apply to your own lives,

  • I'm hoping. So, even if you're not planning on coming here, I hope you'll still watch, because there's

  • so much that I want to talk about and so much I want to do, and yeah. Today I woke up and I had this

  • realization, so... thank you guys for watching and I'll see you in the next video!

  • I hope you enjoyed this new installment of Girl Abroad and I want to thank all of you who have

  • supported me up until this point. I've reached over 100K subs and I couldn't have done it without you.

  • Don't forget to like this video for more content like this and share it with people who love Japan as much as I do.

  • I hope to hear from you guys in the next video. See you guys next time!
