I was on my way to this Japanese village that had replaced humans with scarecrow style dolls and learn about this abandoned elementary school that was tucked into the mountains with a bit of a catch.
There was a guy living there, so naturally I had to swing by and hear his story.
If you haven't watched that video yet, I'd highly recommend pausing here and watching that one moving on.
When her interview ramped up, he offered up the place to stay for the night, which I obviously wasn't going to say No tube.
And thus begins our story Thistle abandoned elementary school.
So I'm gonna be staying the night kind of seeing what that's like.
One of my favorite features off this place is the fact that it has a cafe, right?
Can enjoy things in here, or you can come out to the deck that they have outside right here and enjoy it with a beautiful view of the mountains.
But one of the things that makes this place really amazing is that up here, they're actually rooms that you can stay in.
Gives the mantras on uhh so you came back over there.
On the first floor.
There also is a shower available right in here.
What time is it?
Nine o'clock way.
Spent the entire night just hanging out with him, Playing guitar, singing, talking about his coffee.
What amazing, amazing spirit.
What do you have?
A little look?
E got full time.
Oh, monument Oh, you'll come back here.
Has his own original drip coffee bags.
I absolutely love these things.
E He gave us a it.
He sells them online.
So if you want a taste of this place, I'll link these down below.
I'm very excited about Thank you.
Oh, by the way, completely speak English.
Just the interview in Japanese felt much more natural.
And now we're going to stay here for the night in an abandoned school in an abandoned school.
How do you feel about it?
Not as creeped out as I was hoping.
Which sounds really weird because, like, you know, like all the lights are on, right?
We're surrounded by mountains.
You can't see anything in the dark.
And I was expecting, like, an ominous kind of like Ruesch spooky skeletons.
Kinda kinda vibe, but as we're walking down the hall to get here with the only light to guide me was whatever is leaking out of these windows and the emergency sign, I'm like thinking, Okay.
What happened in Silent Hill?
Then siren like if something's gonna pop out, it's gonna pop out.
32 I guess it's just a normal school.
It honestly feels oddly safe.
Aside from the spiders and Centipedes and stop picture is not a huge fan of the bombing.
Now we've got a unpack set up all of our stuff to charge.
We've been on the road so far for about three days.
It's gonna be a fun night.
Heard something moving back here.
I'm, like, a half worried that it's gonna be like in here.
I put it down there.
Areas with coverage is nothing.
Yes, that's good.
Dude, it's sort of 100.
Okay, there's something out there.
Duty is right above us.
So I'm gonna use this is light mounted.
I'm talking to GoPro's media.
Mahdi in a preview.
Okay, here we go.
Gets you Thio?
Yeah, Yeah, right.
You shoot is over there Now it's to your right.
You're not getting any update.
Yeah, e can't feel it.
Okay, so it's in there, at least is not in our room.
Yeah, so that's that's all.
Like E was exciting.
You know, that was a little bit of adrenaline doing that.
All right, there's a switch around here somewhere.
Way Dio it is.
What time is three o'clock in the morning?
Someone somewhere around three o'clock in the morning Way Just spent the last couple hours outside doing Astro photography time Well spent because of the aesthetic of this place and expected that it was gonna have kind of like a creepy or scary field.
It's actually kind of peaceful.
You got crickets going and a river off in the distance.
You know, the stars in the sky I really like.
Up until now, we've always either stayed in the car or the campsite.
And this is by far the most comfortable and say if I have felt yet, it's amazing that we're the only people here.
I think that kind of adds to the comfort as well.
Don't often get the opportunity in life that have a place all to yourself.
So I'm really looking forward to that coffee in the morning.
So that's the nighttime update for now.
I'm gonna catch some Z's.
There is not dead.
He's just It's just resting.
When we finally did get to sleep last night, it was pretty late.
First, we set up far too late with the owner who might be my new favorite person.
