  • Life in the modern city of Tokyo.

  • It all revolves around...

  • ...coffee?

  • There are no normal clothes for us here.

  • That's our problem.

  • Join our boys as they tackle

  • everyday life as as expat in Japan

  • in the quintessential

  • coffee houses of Tokyo!

  • Hi! I'm Stan Jedermann.

  • We in the West have an impression that our

  • east Asian neighbors are just stlightly

  • "vertically challenged."

  • That's a common misconception.

  • In the U.S. the average male is

  • about 5'10"

  • or about 177 cm tall.

  • Whereas the average Japanese man

  • is about 5'7"

  • or 171 cm tall.

  • There is a difference, but it's negligible.

  • By the way,

  • I know this is what you really

  • want me to tell you.

  • Why you're really listening

  • ...about the averages below the belt.

  • Let me clear that up for you.

  • The difference between Japanese males

  • and U.S. males

  • is negligible.

  • But that's not the type of show

  • that we're making.

  • So let's get back to topics

  • that we can show our mothers.

  • Average sized western men

  • won't have any trouble finding cllothes in the city

  • finding clothes in the city.

  • But what about those of us

  • who are just "different?"

  • Are we doomed to wearing

  • rolled-up sleeves or

  • cutoff fashion?

  • With over 30% of

  • the U.S. population

  • already having trouble

  • fitting in airplane seats,

  • Is finding that authentic kimono

  • out of the question

  • in a country where most people are

  • proportioned like

  • shojo anime characters?

  • Let's find out what solutions

  • our boys have dug up today

  • in this next episode

  • of Coffee Yaro.

  • Ochiai (落合)

  • Welcome to Ochiai!

  • Located on the Tozai Line

  • near Nakano,

  • Ochiai has been a residential area

  • since the Edo Period.

  • It was originally a boom town

  • noted for cloth dying.

  • The cafe we are going to today

  • is called Coco House.

  • A simple, retro-style cafe

  • geared towards locals

  • that has been in the area

  • since the Showa Era.

  • A very residential area indeed,

  • but that's not all

  • there is to Ochiai.

  • The Ochiai neighborhood is where

  • two major rivers in Tokyo converge

  • The Myojoji-gawa and the Kanda-gawa.

  • Do you remember the Kanda-gawa

  • from the first episode?

  • This geography allowed

  • a lively dyeing community

  • to flourish in the Edo Period.

  • Even today,

  • many artisans continue to create

  • and exhibit their artwork

  • in the area.

  • In February every year

  • this history is celebrated

  • through a local three-day festival

  • called "Some-no-Komichi."

  • Futaba-En Cloth Dyeing

  • Stan needs to learn the Japanese phrase

  • "Iwanu-ga-hana."

  • To recap,

  • Coco House in Ochiai

  • is the coffee house we went to today.

  • Our boys visited the textile factory here

  • and a number of options

  • were given for sizes

  • large-sized factories

  • are available in the city

  • and special order

  • ensures a proper fit

  • which even yukata need.

  • However, everyone's experience

  • in Japan is a little different.

  • Which Yaro seemed most like you?

  • All information can be found on our

  • website right down here

  • and join us next time

  • as we tackle "omiyage"

  • and what souvenirs to buy in Japan.

Life in the modern city of Tokyo.
