Today we’re gonna go and ask the people in Japanese, to tell us about the place they are from,
might be the area where they were born, and what amazing place about that is. So maybe that’s something you might want to check out
when you next come to Japan. Let’s go and ask Japanese! I am from Mie, It’s in the Ise are, so the sea food is very good. Lots of sightseeing spots and a lot of people visiting. and you can enjoy for a while I like there very much. So the must-pay-a-visit place in Mie is? The Okageyokocho at Ise is a very Japanese view place, The food there is also very good. And many famous sightseeing spots, Also many shrines, and spiritual spots, there It’s really a good place,
don’t want anyone to miss it. Do you know the shrine’s name? Ise Shrine. Where Amaterasu lives? Yes, it’s very famous, I recommend it as well. There’s a shop in Okageyokocho, where sells mochi. It’s called Akafuku, it’s Mochi and red bean paste in it And lobster dishes And it’s also famous for the croquette. You can get one under 500 yen, it’s really good. Do you have any food to suggest in Tokyo? The deep-fried minced meat in Asakusa is very good. Definitely worth trying when visiting the Sky tree. The deep-fried minced meat! The airport is very close to the city. Itami airport is very close to the city. You are coming from the same city? Yes, we are from Kansai. The Takoyaki! The steamed meat bun is also famous. It’s called 551. Seems attractive, do you know where? Kobe is beautiful, the night view in Port Island is good. The Port Island and shopping mall is beside each other Great night view and the sea, everything is wonderful. There also have a big Ferris wheel. The good place in Tokyo? Basically, Tokyo have good access to anywhere, It’s easy to go any place you like and easy to get the things you want at any place, Then where do you suggest for people who visit Japan for the first time? I think it’s gonna be the centre of Tokyo. Such as Shibuya, Harajuku, around these areas. What are these places good about? Usually you can’t see that much of people besides there and lots of shops around to enjoy shopping. I am also from Tokyo, There is a area called Yanesen, which is very antique because it has its original old street view. If you go there you can see the original Tokyo,
apart from the modern city and it’s very interesting. Where is it? I think it’s somewhere near Ueno area. It’s doesn’t have this much energetic young people like here, but it has its unique attractive points. I used to go there only to enjoy the view of the street. What is good about your home town in Japan? I am from Kawagoe, it’s old and very good. There’s a place called Kurazukuri,
which remains the old city of Japan. If you want to enjoy the antique mood of Japan, besides the modern city, which you can see at everywhere, If you travle in Japan, I wish people can visit there. It also has a name which is “Little Edo”
(Edo is the former name of Tokyo from 1603 to 1868.) The urban city landscape is wonderful,
more and more tourists are going there. I think it’s really good. And the snack city. You mean the snack street? Oops, it’s my mistake. The Okashiyokocho (the snack street),
what do you do there? The have a really long gluten made snack, I see people buying it all the times. How long is it? It’s like this long. So big! It’s very long. fu(gluten) snack? Fugashi. Remember Fugashi! I also heard that Kawagoe festival is very famous. Oh yes. What goes on there? People wearing the mask of Okame and dance. So visiting there can enjoy the whole Japanese culture! Yes! Is it often around summer? The Kawagoe festival is in autumn. But basically in the summer they have lots of festivals. That’s all the questions, thank you very much! So, what’s good about your home town? Everybody had a different story to tell. My advice for you would to be,
don’t only go to the main big city. Like Tokyo and Osaka.
Actually go to the smaller cities. Find out stuffs, there are lovely stuffs. For example I’ve been to Ise,
Azuchimomoyama Bunka mura (culture village). And for example that was a lovely place we did videos on Ask Japanese, and on my channel. And it was worth traveling
all the way out to the countryside. Because you see a very different Japan,
and it’s definitely worth to trip. So, I hope you have a lovely.
Let me know what’s really cool about your hometown. Do you have any cool festival anything you’re proud of? Looking forward to your comments,
and I will catch up with you soon on Ask Japanese!
