  • I used to think beaches like this weren't real when I saw them in the UK on pictures and stuff

  • I thought they were just photoshopped

  • Oh my god

  • Appetizing

  • ...is not a word I would use

  • to describe this

  • I recently packed my bags, put on my cheap sunglasses and flew through the sky

  • 1500 km south to the islands of Okinawa

  • It was here on my trip with Odigo Travel that I would discover a culture that was like Japan

  • but not like Japan

  • A culture where people get drunk off alcoholic snakes

  • and the lots and lots of spam!

  • And no sooner we had landed the first opportunity to experience Okinawan culture presented itself!

  • In Beer form!

  • So we just arrived in Naha the capital city of Okinawa and what better way to kick things off

  • than by trying the beer of Okinawa

  • Orion...Orion

  • Original Brew

  • Supposed to be quite good this is the local beer!

  • Never had it before!

  • Tastes a lot like Asahi

  • But little bit more citrusy, little bit more fruity!

  • In a good way! I find Asahi beers a bit boring..

  • If I was gonna rank the mainstream Japanese beers :

  • Asahi, Kirin, Orion, and Sapporo, the number one!

  • Good! Let's go and check out Okinawa

  • ...by walking over here

  • This is probably the best beach I've been to

  • ...ever!

  • It looks like someone's tipped hundreds of barrels of blue dye into the sea to make it look so perfect

  • I used to think beaches like this weren't real when I saw them in the UK in pictures and stuff, I thought they were just photoshopped

  • And to be fair, I'm right to be pessimistic, especially given how British beaches look compared to this

  • In the UK, you can't see through the water at all

  • And the sand looks like mud, this sand is white and the water is really really warm

  • Again, if you go in the sea anywhere in the UK, it's always freezing or cold, here it's like being in a hot bath!

  • That is ridiculous!

  • But was the beach really that good? I decided to ask some fellow tourists for their opinions

  • If you could describe this beach in one word, what would that word be?

  • Wet!

  • And you?

  • Hot!

  • Hot?

  • Such boring words

  • No, hot and wet beach!

  • Disgusting!

  • If you could rate this beach on a scale of 1 to 10, what would it be?

  • Errr like 20!

  • It's off the charts!!

  • Oh my god!!!

  • Why do you think Japanese women don't really wear bikinis that much?

  • There's like barely anyone on here

  • They don't want to get tanned and I think they embarrassed about showing skin

  • It's the sort of beach that makes me frustrated coz I know I'm never gonna be able to do it justice on camera

  • You need some sort of 4D VR Super Dooper Beach Experience

  • To be able to capture it!

  • This beach is amazing Jun

  • Yeah!

  • There's no one!

  • Absolutely no one!

  • Just you and me

  • So romantic!

  • Apart from the towel, the towel kind of removes the element of romance out of the equation

  • I wish I'd bloody brought one

  • Sweating like a ....donkey!

  • It seems the best way to appreciate the waters of Okinawa though is to get under it

  • So we're about to hop on this banana boat

  • Go out into the bay and check out some coral

  • Got some snorkeling gear

  • Let's go!

  • Having spent an hour flailing about under water like a porpus

  • We traded the photoshopped Okinawan waters for the bustling streets of downtown Naha

  • In order to taste another Okinawan cultural icon

  • So this is Blue Seal, apparently it's the ice-cream of Okinawa

  • It started out in America a few decades ago then came to Okinawa and now they just call it Okinawa Ice-Cream

  • I don't normally like ice-cream at all, but I'm willing to give it a shot!

  • What do you recommend Chris?

  • Salted Cookie!

  • It's an Okinawan local specialty

  • Banana Suzanna

  • What's that all about?

  • We're getting Shio Chinsuko

  • Which is Okinawa Salt Cookie

  • Is it the same as Chocolate Chip Cookie? Normal Cookie?

  • It's like a white sugar cookie

  • White sugar cookie??

  • Like all the cookie inside is like a vanilla ice-cream

  • Blue Seal Memorabilia

  • Here we go!

  • Oh yeah I like that!

  • That's really good!

  • It's really really thick and there seams to be like

  • lumps of biscuit in it!

  • Salted Cookie! It tastes a bit like Hershey's Chocolate Cookie chocolate

  • But in ice-cream form

  • Quite chewy!

  • It's like chewy ice-cream

  • So one of the national dishes of Okinawa is Spam

  • I'm not even joking, apparently after WWII it was really popular during rations

  • And they still eat it now, they have it fried

  • And it tastes pretty good

  • I actually had it in an Okinawan restaurant in Tokyo, and I thought someone was playing a prank on me or something

  • when I saw it on the menu

  • It actually tasted surprisingly good!

  • And look it's Rachel! Do you like Spam?

  • I'm not sure I've actually ever had Spam

  • It's like cheap luncheon meat

  • It doesn't look good, it looks like cancer

  • It looks like cancer and diabetes all rolled in one package

  • but tastes pretty good!

  • And then over here

  • there's Snake sake!

  • Look at his little face!

  • This is actually a drink

  • What is it? What's in there?

  • Part of me wants to try it, the other part is incredibly disgusted

  • The fact that the snake's face is in there

  • I hate it when people put snake in my drink

  • But if I thought snakes and spam were weird enough

  • nothing could prepare me for the frog purses

  • Oh my god!

  • This is a frog purse

  • I'm not even joking

  • What does it smell like?

  • It doesn't smell like anything

  • Nothing

  • That was a jolly good sniff!

  • Disgusting!

  • It's the sort of thing you can hide in someone's bed

  • and have a lot of fun!

  • Somehow despite the drowned vipers and the odorless frog purses we were still hungry!

  • So we headed to a nearby restaurant where I was able to try a popular Okinawan dish that had been recommended to me by a friend

  • So having some Okinawan food for lunch, we're kicking things off with Rafute which is kind of

  • Soy sauce marinated pork and it's very very fatty!

  • But looks pretty good!

  • Let's check it out!

  • There you go! You can't go wrong with pork

  • Oh hell yeah!

  • That's so good!

  • The pork is so tender!

  • And the fat, the fat isn't like horrible fat

  • Because it marinates in soy sauce it's quite a nice flavor!

  • Lucky Okinawans who can eat this regularly

  • 9 out of 10

  • And Chris got some sake

  • Snake Sake!

  • Let's watch him get drunk and be sick everywhere

  • 45 900:08:04,220 --> 00:08:07,740 This is Snake Venom Sake

  • You can't even drink beer, little alone 45% Snake Sake

  • It's gonna be messy

  • Wanna do Kanpai with snake venom sake?

  • That's a really strong flavor!

  • It actually tastes kind of nice!

  • It does?

  • Chris has gone quiet

  • Too strong!

  • I wouldn't help you coz I'm driving!

  • Oh I totally forgot!

  • I was gonna offer it to you!

  • No

  • You're on your own mate good luck

  • Okinawa was a lot of fun, but I knew the trip wouldn't feel complete without eating some spam

  • Fortunately I came across some at the airport on the way home

  • So finally tracked down some spam

  • It costs 290 yen which is about 2 or 3 dollars

  • And smells rather spectacular

  • Appetizing

  • Is not a word I would use to describe this but..

  • There you go!

  • It looks like someone's cut out its tongue off

  • and put it over some rice

  • It's very very salty

  • It tastes very very cheap

  • I don't mind spam it's quite a nice surprise

  • But....yeah this is a bit dodgy

  • It tastes like the sort of thing you'd eat if you're hungover

  • I've tried to spice things up

  • By putting some sauce in it but it still pretty bland!

  • That said, this is a pretty cheap place so this could be a poor reflexion on spam

  • Weirdly addictive

  • Must be all the salt

  • I had an amazing time in Okinawa

  • For me, the beaches were my personal highlight and I hope to go back some time soon

  • Probably during the disturbingly snow-filled winter months in North Japan

  • I'm single, ladies!

  • On Chris' Channel

  • There's actually two snakes in here

  • Can you see those?

  • They're like kissing

  • Well isn't that cute?

I used to think beaches like this weren't real when I saw them in the UK on pictures and stuff
