What does a $3000 Japanese Hotel Room look like?


[Chris] We’ve been in here about four or five
minutes we still haven’t found the bathroom.
[Ryotaro] True. [Chris] Oh for heaven sakes if I break my legs doing this, I’m going to kick you to
death with whatever is left of them. Shit! So today we’re off to visit the hotel that
the Emperor himself stays at when he comes to visit Sendai. We’re being taken
off on another adventure by Ryotaro although this time he’s being worryingly
more secretive than usual. [Ryotaro] Hi there. Today you’re going to visit the kind of room that Emperor stays whenever he comes to Sendai. Then after
that we are going to try some outdoor activities. I know you’re being really
busy right, so I want to destress yourself and yeah and it’s the
experience of this week exciting outdoor activities right. And if you want to
escape from Sendai, this is the place to be. Yeah all of a sudden it feels like
we’ve just left Japan and driven up into Beverly Hills or something all the
houses are huge and the roads are wide. Apparently this whole town has been
built by Mitsubishi since the 1970s to be the kind of ideal place to live and
well certainly beats my apartment, that’s for sure. [Chris] Have you seen how big my apartment is?
[Ryotaro] I haven’t. [Chris] To see this, is just like, not fair.
[Ryotaro] How many rooms have you got?
[Chris] Not enough. [Ryotaro] How many chairs have you got? [Chris] What kind of a shit question is that? How many chairs- that is the measurement of success isn’t it? “How many chairs you have in your house” [Chris] Now “How many rooms”. It’s all about the chairs.
[Ryotaro] It’s all about the chairs. [Chris] I bet they’ve got a lot of chairs. Too many chairs. [Ryotaro] So Chris this room that we are approaching here is called the Royal Suite. [Chris] Wow, two doors. One door isn’t enough.
[Ryotaro] And it’s got two doors. [Ryotaro] This is most expensive room supposedly. And this is the kind of room that the Emperor would stay. I guess… They didn’t really tell me where he would stay. It’s kind of a security secret anyways. Yeah. [Chris] Yeah. This is the kind of room-
[Ryotaro] This is the kinda room he would stay. [Ryotaro] Ta-da-di-da-laaa~ [Ryotaro] Ho-ly!
[Chris] Oh my god. [Ryotaro] God! What is this!
[Chris] So, so this is the the barrier the entry to like a palace. [Ryotaro] Alright, it’s the, it’s the – chandelier!
[Chris] That’s ludicrous. [Chris] This conference room is about the size of my entire apartment. That’s depressing. [Chris] Earlier in the car you ask me how many chairs I had, as a measurement of wealth. [Chris] Look at how many chairs this goddamn room has!
[Ryotaro] So many! [Chris] 8 chairs there. 2 chairs there.
[Ryotaro] 8 chairs! That’s already… [Ryotaro] That is already wealthy. [Chris] We come to this beautiful royal suite and all you care about is counting the chairs! Bloody hell. [Ryotaro] What now? Ohhh-ho-ho-ho!
[Chris] Oh wow. [Chris] That is… that is… That is quite the bed.
[Ryotaro] A huge bed! [Chris] There is king-sized, then there is “royal-sized”. [Ryotaro] This is like bigger than a king-size, like twice the king-size, a royal-size. Even if I sleep on this bed I will just sleep on this part. [Chris] The first 1/10th.
[Ryotaro] The first 1/10th exactly. [Chris] Been in here about four or five minutes we still haven’t found the bathroom.
[Ryotaro] True. [Chris] Uhh, it could be down there behind the conference room or it’s either behind this door. [Ryotaro] This is a door? Ah it’s a door.
[Chris] This is a door, or a wardrobe. [Chris] Let’s have a look. It’s like a nuclear bunker blast door.
[Ryotaro] Oh my… [Ryotaro] Look at, look at… again, look at the width of the… [Ryotaro] That-that-that’s again, a measurement of the wealth
[Chris] Yeah. [Chris] That is one hell of a door. Enough about doors, let’s do down… another corridor. The secret bathroom. Now this, is the kind of bathroom I want. [Chris] We’ve got a shower…
[Ryotaro] And… what is that to the right? [Chris] This is… this is a sauna! Wow! [Chris] A sauna, a shower, a jump in jacuzzi bath for the mountain view out that window. [Chris] Best of all though, automatic window shades! This is the future. I think we’re in, we’re in this the most glamorous bathroom at North Japan [Chris] And all I care about is the automatic
window shades.
[Ryotaro] And number of chairs. [Chris] And the number of chairs.
[Ryotaro] And the width of the door. [Chris] And the width of the door… [Chris] It’s the most glamorous hotel room I’ve ever been to and at least five times the size of the largest hotel room that I’ve stayed in as well. Compared to the traditional Japanese business hotel. [Ryotaro] And 15 times bigger than
your room right?
[Chris] 15 times bigger than my house. [Chris] Which is a small apartment. [Ryotaro] You need to be more popular on YouTube, eh. [Chris: Yeah, I need to be more popular on the YouTube. That’ll get me my ridiculously large hotel room. Just to give you an idea of
how big this hotel room is I’m down one end where the bedroom is and Ryotaro all the way over there in the distance you can kind of make out Ryotaro at
the conference room table. Say “Hello.” [Ryotaro] Hello World! [Chris] I think you’d burn about a thousand
calories a day just by staying at this hotel room and walking around it and I don’t
know what he’s doing… What is, what is going on… I don’t… I don’t understand
just let him, let him get on with that. [Chris] Well… In his last chair.
[Ryotaro] Well well. [Ryotaro] So um, so did you enjoy some time? In this room that you can’t ever possibly afford? [Chris] I feel both impressed and depressed, both simultaneously. [Ryotaro] Same here, same here. [Ryotaro] So now it’s time for outdoor business! [Chris] Outdoor business. [Chris] What does that even mean? [Ryotaro] Outdoor business. That’s it. So pretty much in the middle of nowhere. We’ve just come across this kind of market stand, loaded with vegetables
from the garden just behind us. [Ryotaro] But there’s no one.
[Chris] And there’s no one here. [Chris] But their all the food and all the produce is labeled with prices. You can basically just turn up here grab your, what, whatever you got [Chris] What is that a persimmon?
[Ryotaro] No it’s not persimmon, It’s a… [Chris] Persimmon… I really am shit at vegetables.
[Ryotaro] Persimmon, how could this be a… [Ryotaro] Zucchini.
[Chris] Zucchini. [Ryotaro] You know this right, zucchini? 100 yen, a dollar.
[Chris] Yeah. Right. [Chris] What is this? Ow. [Ryotaro] It’s goya.
[Chris] Goya. It’s a vegetable. [Chris] But you can, you turn up here. You grab your, oh my god. You grab your zucchini for 100 yen. Put the money in the box here. And away you go. And it’s pretty quite… humbling. To see this you know. If this was in the UK, a bunch of teenagers would rock up on their bicycles and it’d be
gone in about 45 seconds. [Chris] It takes a degree of trust to be able to do this.
[Ryotaro] Even less. [Chris] Yeah, this sums up the kind of trust you find in Japanese culture. Trust that I wish we had in a lot of other countries. So we’ve just been cycling through the
fields and this is breakfast. Rice balls from the very field that the rice came
from from the nice farmers from the local area. It’s been an uncharacteristically good
morning. When you spend the day with Ryotaro you’re guaranteed one thing. Well two
things actually: disappointment and near-death experiences and so far, it’s actually been alright. Cheeky cycle through a field. [Ryotaro] It’s only 10 o’clock and I haven’t tried enough yet. And this breakfast is just the
beginning of like the end. [Ryotaro] But anyway, I’ve got something I want to show you. Great scenery is waiting for you. [Ryotaro] Up in the mountains for us
[Chris] The beginning of the end. [Chris] That’s not what you want to hear when you’re eating breakfast in a rice field. Bloody hell [Chris] You real… you really do want to kill me, don’t ya?
[Ryotaro] *evil laughter* [Ryotaro] No, I never said that 😇 Did I? [Chris] It’s not even 11, 11:00 a.m. in
the morning and he’s dragged me up a mountain. [Chris] You told me it was a nice view. Yeah it is a nice view, but I didn’t know I’d actually be doing something. [Chris] I’ve never done this before, he’s got a, what is it? A paraglider?
[Ryotaro] It’s paragliding. [Chris] Oh for god’s sake. It’s not even 11:00 a.m. I haven’t had my second coffee and you want me to [Chris] fly. Is it, is it safe?
[Ryotaro] Not sure about that because I mean there is, they can like only hold up to a certain weight. [Ryotaro] And how much do you weigh?
[Chris] 80 kilograms… [Ryotaro] And I think this is made for Japanese people and you’re from the UK. You’re gonna be the first UK, person from the UK trying this and you said how much [Ryotaro] you weigh again?
[Chris] 80 kilograms. [Ryotaro] And I’m not sure about that…
[Chris] Maybe repeat my weight… [Chris] What a… what a dickhead. You can see the paraglider and then
you just got the edge of the mountain and then nothingness for like a thousand
meters or whatever is so yeah it’s a little bit scary
11 a.m., 11 a.m. this is at least a 2, a 2:00pm job. I’m not ready for this. [Chris] Union Jack helmet, right.
[Ryotaro] Once you’re in the air, and you’re just gonna relax and sit back and… and kill yourself. [Chris] Reassuring words. This is it then. 10 past 11. Wish me luck Oh my god. [Ryotaro] *insane laughter* [Chris] I’m also trying not to look down too much right now. [Chris] Ohh…. I, we took off before I even knew what was going on. All of a sudden we were up and yeah so sudden and you’re supposed
to jump in and sit down but for some reason I couldn’t get in properly so I
felt like I was dangling out the front the whole time but yeah it’s very fun
very fun. Job well done. Job well done I [Chris] did it and I survived ha ha ha High five. Next challenge?
[Ryotaro] Well done, next challenge. [Chris] Next challenge…? Oh for heaven’s sake. He really does want
to kill me. He really does want to kill me. Ski jump? It’s not even 12 o’clock I still haven’t my second coffee. If I break my legs doing this I’m going to kick you to death with whatever’s left of them. Make no mistake. [Chris] Oh my god. I’m basically wearing a sauna. It’s a wetsuit but on a day when it’s like 35 degrees, it’s not a good thing to
do I’m so sweaty and feel like utter just utter shit. But at least I get to watch Ryotaro go first. [Chris] Go! Go! Here we go. [Ryotaro] Yes! [Ryotaro] Oooo! *splash* *genuine laughter* [Chris] I love that noise he made. [Ryotaro] Oooo!
[Chris] *laughs* [Ryotaro] My, my chest hurts. [Ryotaro] I lost… I lost my ski. And this is all cut.
[Chris] You lost your ski. [Ryotaro] Look at that.
[Chris] It’s over there in the bottom of the, in the bottom of the water. [Chris] Good luck with that. Alright it’s my turn. [Ryotaro] All right, your turn. Let’s see
what the man with 80 kilograms can do. [Chris] Shiiiiiiit! *splash* [Chris] First ever ski jump Into some water. I officially have no energy. This is shaping up to be a rather bizarre day. Unlike Ryotaro though, I’ve got both my skiis. [Ryotaro] Yes but…
[Chris] So I’m the winner! Definitely. I’m the winner. Unbelievable. It’s, it’s I don’t know where my watch is. It’s two o’clock, about two o’clock now. Still haven’t had my second coffee I’m
about to do a zipline again for the first the first time. And I think that’s it. Is that it? Shii-t. It’s quite high actually. Uh OK? [Attendant] Ok, three, two, one. Go!
[Chris] Ehhh, I dunno about that… [Ryotaro] Shut up and die now!
[Chris] Oh Shiit!! [Ryotaro] Um… So I think he did all good for today and I think uh I think another session of assassinating him.
I should go all right. three two one. [Ryotaro] Whooo! [Chris] That is a nice chandelier for a tent. We’re doing something called “glamping” which is called glamorous camping. I don’t know
who thought up that name. Ryotaro is cooking us a barbecue it’s on fire
look at this, shit. [Chris] What are you doing? [Chris] I left, I left him in charge of the barbecue and he set fire to… the food. [Chris] Well if none of the things we’ve done today will kill me, then Ryotaro cooking certainly might. [Chris] Salmonella chicken and onions. [Ryotaro] Um, can you hold this for a moment?
[Chris] Yeah. [Ryotaro] I’ve got some treat for you.
[Chris] You’ve got a treat for me? [Ryotaro] Yeah. Can I show it to you?
[Chris] Alright. [Chris] You can shh, yeah, alright.
[Ryotaro] Alright. [Ryotaro] Ta-dahhhhh [Chris] Oh my god. [Ryotaro] German sausages. 100% German.
[Chris] Yeah I’ve got nothing against German sausages. [Chris] I like German sausages…
[Ryotaro] But you do, you do have something. You just think what? [Chris] I just think British sausages are better. I think the pork is better quality.
[Ryotaro] Lies. [Chris] But that’s great. I’m all…
[Ryotaro] Yeah b-b-b-but. Have you even been to Germany anyways? [Chris] No I haven’t. But I have had, I’ve had German sausages before.
[Ryotaro] I bloody lived there for [Ryotaro] fucking what, 2 and a half years and now, cook it please.
[Chris] Alright. Cook it? [Ryotaro] For your sake. For your learning. You need to cook German sausage and taste it. And just say that German sausages are better. Alright? [Chris] This situation just got very strange very fast. Ok sure, I’ll cook your German sausages for gods’ sake. [Chris] Alright, that is, that is the biggest sausage in the world. What’s going on there? [Ryotaro] So look at that, Chris and the sausages.
[Chris] Chris and the sausages. [Ryotaro] Sounds like the title of a movie.
[Chris] The title of the video. [Ryotaro] “Chris and the sausages.”
[Chris] Dunno how that will go down. [Chris] There’s quite honestly enough sausages here to feed the entire town. Well you may have tried to kill me thrice today but this [Chris] is my reward right?
[Ryotaro] Yeah. I got like
porkchop and also the beef steak. [Ryotaro] And look at your side, mate.
[Chris] What did you just say!? [Ryotaro] You got like one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, and nine point five one really big sausages. They are all German, and this is what you came for, right? [Chris] It is yeah.
[Ryotaro] This is your reward. [Chris] I’ve survived flying through the sky, ski-jumping into water, and being pushed down a zipline by a Japanese guy. [Ryotaro] A nice Japanese guy.
[Chris] I now belong to an exclusive club of people [Chris] Who have done all three of those things. On the same day.
[Ryotaro] You’re welcome. [Chris] Otherwise, a good day. Interestingly, despite all of those things,
none of them woke me up like a second coffee. Like flying, jumping into water,
ziplining, all good fun. Didn’t wake me up like a second coffee though. Like a late morning, second coffee. [Chris] Yeah, this glamping thing.
[Ryotaro] It’s amazing isn’t it? [Chris] When I heard about it, I thought “glamourous camping” Can that be good? Can camping ever be good? No. But throw in a barbecue and it’s a whole new ball game. [Ryotaro] And who would think to install a chandelier in a tent? [Chris] The person who thought up “glamorous camping.” [Ryotaro] You’re right. [Chris] It’s basically just eating in a tent. But the chandelier, thats what makes the difference. That’s what makes it glamorous camping.
That is what makes it “glamping.” [Ryotaro] You sound like the actual person who invented it and you didn’t.
[Chris] I sound like I’ve had some sort of [Chris] philosophical break through. Yeah.
[Ryotaro] You’re trying to sound smart, but you’re not. [Chris] Yeah. [Chris] … yeah. [Chris] Despite my somewhat anxious face paragliding was actually a lot of fun if you’re interested in following in our footsteps
whether that’s cycling, water jumping, ziplining, or just glamping up over
dinner, you can find the details of where we went and how you can get there in the
description box below and don’t worry the Royal Park Hotel does actually have
normal hotel rooms that aren’t insanely huge it cost three thousand dollars a
night. But for now guys, as always, many thanks
for watching we’ll see you next time. [Chris] You… you nearly smashed your head on that!
[Ryotaro] *laughing*

  1. I may be stupid fror asking, but why are some of those saisages bright green? Is this some japanese style, say like wasabi maybe? Im not sure ive never seen green sausages before in my life.

  2. just discovered your channel. 90% great content & dialogue. imho very British & love the sarcasm or "cheek" in British old slang. Trying to find newer vlogs. YTF would you want a cat in a Jananese apt.? -10% for the stuffed cat Japanimation. & that is a great friend. 👍👍👍

  3. Great video! The Paragliding reminded me of Fools and Horses when Del Boy went on a hang glider. Keep up the great work

  4. 5:29 I came across something like that in denmark before, I can't really remember if they where selling yam or honney

  5. In fairness we do have honesty boxes in the UK.

    For some reason they're always at crossroads or forks in the road, as if that is the perfect place to stop your car and buy a cucumber.

  6. At first I thought the price was written in Yen and thought:”eyh, it isn’t that expensive”.

    Then I noticed my mistake. Glad I didn’t book it right away.

  7. I have found these stands with produce and no vendor but a box in Denmark as well. And I wanna say I also found them on the Island of Jersey, but right now I'm not certain I remember correctly.

  8. What I'm gonna spend £3000 on – my flight to Japan, my accomomadation, some food money and some money for tickets, castles etc and probably some money to spare to fix my car when I get back

    What Chris spends £3000 on – 1 BIG BOI ROOM

  9. The scene with the farm was very heart warming. Also 8:40, Ryotaro saying that made me spit my water, wtf hahaha!

  10. Chris: You really do want to kill me, don't you?
    Ryotaro: No. I never said that……….. did I? ⚆ _ ⚆

  11. U know that Germany is the country of sausages. Idk about the quality of German sausages in Japan, but by objective measurement (my gf) German ones are better :->

  12. why is chris so beautiful. the way his lil cheeks were burnt at the end of the video UGH SO CUTE

  13. Just to say, if you do go ziplining again in the future, make sure you put the trailing safety karabiner on top of the trolly (they typically have a little cut out where the karabiner would comfortably sit) as although it doesn't make much of a difference to the immediate safety, it could become an issue in the future where the cable will wear down the karabiner and vice versa.

  14. Is rice rice rice every day a lot to take as a staple. Or does it become like eggs back home?? as a chef i wonder about the appeal of the repetitiveness. even though its almost flavourless, if you have time to reply would love to know

  15. Hi, I live in Newmarket Suffolk. If you would like, i will happily send you some POWTERS sausages, the same the queen liz eats (literally no joke). as a chef ive never had better and your friend will be amazed. its a strange thing to post i know but its out there now 🙂 and i'm serious if they would like to experience the best we have i have no problem sending them for you, amazing video as always and thankyou for opening me to the amazingly different culture.

  16. “If my legs break I will kick you with whatever is left of them.” This is the best thing I’ve heard all day today. Thank you Chris. 😂😂

  17. Ryotaro is mean..not even sarcastic. I usually love their episode, but I don't like this Ryotaro much. 聞いても笑えない発言が今回多いよ

  18. The Uk also has these veg stalls where no one operates them, but usually, they are only in the countryside where everyone knows everyone.

  19. 6:18 "It takes a degree of trust to be able to do this."
    I've thought about this. Trust has to be earned. It's not a one way street (though, that's how it often times begins).
    I may be romanticizing it a bit too much, but that's one of the many things that I love about Japan. The respect they have for other people.
    If I remember correctly, some japanese even leave their cars unlocked at the gas station, or their bikes unlocked for a quick jump in the grocery store.
    Meanwhile, I have to carry my bike up to my appartment, because I already had two bikes stolen from me – first time with an average lock, the second time with quite the expensive lock on it.
    To be fair, at least they left me the expensive lock lol
    Anyways, it's those little things I really enjoy in Chris' videos. The scenery & activities are always great, but these little things… they make it just special.
    Well, this and Chris (& co) of course.

  20. Anyone know how many yen this is because it shows the us dollar sign so how much would it be in us dillars if he means the hotel is 3000 yen

  21. wait ryotaro lived in germany for 2,5 years? wow, does he also speak some german? would be cool to talk to him in german one day 😀 btw: did you like our sausages better? 😛

  22. Just recently started watching and while most videos are at the very least entertaining, the ones with ryotaro, natsuki and some of the other locals really are the highlight for me. They are not what I imagine to be very typical Japanese, but they come across so genuine and with an almost childish look on life we all should have a little more sometimes.

  23. Before you explained why, I was shocked by how much your location looked like the USA. Strip malls n shit. Houses way too big to make sense. Awful.

  24. As simple as it is, I'm so proud I get the joke on Ryotaro's shirt lol. Also gotta love how he demonstrates his affection by both trying to kill you and cook you sausages.

  25. Those vegetable stands are in the UK believe it or not! Drive around Welsh country lanes and you’ll often see small stands with vegetables / honey or jams near farms with honesty boxes

  26. The village you went biking near looks exactly like the village from Tom Selleck's MR. BASEBALL, and that would be the next thing to ask, have you went to any Japanese Baseball games like in that movie?

  27. When he said "let's do outdoor business" and then they bicycled and this music started to play, I instantly was in love with it. I wanted to listen to the whole piece so bad <3

  28. Well… there is so much trust in japan culture, because there are no such amounts of selfish scumbags, as they are here in our western cultures…

  29. wow nice hotel but i,m to cheap to pay for that sadly ryotaro sama is trying to kill your wallet poor chris san

  30. As a German, who has been living in the UK for couple of months, i cannot agree with you that UK sausages are better. HOW DARE YOU PUTTING DIRT ON MY SAUSAGE (sarcasm). I feel utterly attacked by the comment but besides that good video.

  31. I miss your beard. It's not just about you.

    Also spend more time showing us interiors to houses and hotels and crap. Kthanks
