10 Must Know JAPAN Travel Tips No One Talks about ...like POLICE

These Top 10 Japan Travel Tips are based on what I wish I knew before moving to Japan. This serves as a Japan Guide for travelers planning Japan travel and what to do when stopped by a Japanese Police officer. This Tokyo guide also shows what not do in Japan as well as things not do in Japan based on Japanese culture. These Japanese Travel Tips cover Tattoos in a Japanese Onsen, Non-tipping culture, riding the train in Japan, Wifi in Japan, Japanese Hotels, Japanese Police, etc. Basically, these are the things to know before going to Japan. More information is listed below.

You can go to most major electronics store and they should carry it. There are a few options, but I’ll cover the 2 basic types that I think is the best for travelers. (1) SIM card with a daily data transfer limits 220mb per day. You can get it for 7 days or 15 days. (2) SIM cards with a total data transfer limit of 1.5 Gb or 3GB that work for 30 day period. It doesn’t have a daily transfer limit which I personally prefer. And if I use up all the data in only a few days, you can just buy a new card. (* Note that the prices and data plans are always changing so depending on when you see this video, prices might have already changed. ) 7:39 #6 Smoking in Japan - https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2018/06/27/national/tokyo-lawmakers-approve-anti-smoking-ordinance-capital-gears-2020-olympics/#.W4jJC9gzbUI 9:18 #7 Riding the Train 10:16 #8 Non-Tipping Culture 11:52 #9 Hotel Fees in Japan 12:52 #10 Police in Japan ----- Channel Support ----- Want to help SUPPORT my channel or wanna buy me a BEER?

Kyushoku: The Making of a Japanese School Lunch

Ever since 1954, kyushoku (school lunch) has been an official part of the Japanese school curriculum. Over the years, the laws and menu items have changed, from adding the role of a nutritionist to including rice. Get an inside look into how the Japanese school lunch is made and what food education looks like in one of Japan's public elementary schools. SUBTITLES! I have two English versions. The regular "English" only translates the Japanese portions. The "English UK" subtitles have captions for the entire video. If you don't know how to change your subtitle settings, check out https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/100078. Special thanks to Umejima Elementary School in Adachi-ku, Tokyo, that let me film over two days. You can see their school lunch menu at http://www.adachi.ed.jp/adaume/kyusyokulist.html. This video wouldn't have been possible without the generous support from those on Patreon. To support projects like this, please go to http://bit.ly/PatreonLWIF.

My Aunty's one room Mumbai apartment where she has lived for 55 years in Bombay, Maharashtra, India.

✓ When I was younger and before I had even been to India, my Mother used to tell me that her sister (my Aunty) lived in a one bedroom flat in Bombay. To be honest (and with regret) it did not mean a lot to me then as I had not yet met or seen my Aunty (Masi). The first time that I met Masi and saw her one room flat was in 1999 and I was invited to stay over. I stayed for 5 nights along with her son and his wife (Bhabhi), it was a very humbling experience and one that I still remember to this day. Apart from the outside communal toilets, every single aspect of living is done in this one bedroom flat, be it the: * Morning bathing - with a bucket bath. * Brushing teeth * Prayers * Cooking. * Eating breakfast, lunch or dinner. * Washing clothes * Washing up of cutlery * Ironing * Working from home (sewing) * Watching TV * Socialising * Storage of clothes, dry foods, work materials * Storing of cooking & eating utensils such as pots, pans & plates * Space for a fridge / freezer * Space for a sewing machine * Space for a wardrobe * Sleeping & all the required bedding. What makes it even more astonishing is that the actual room is quite tiny in itself. This is tiny house living and a reality for a large proportion of Mumbaiites. A Big shout out to everyone who reads the description.....you know we love you - you make our description writing efforts worthwhile ;-) My Aunty has suffered a lot in her life; she lost her husband at an young age and then her son passed away several years ago. (The son was the breadwinner in the family). My Aunty and her daughter-in-law now carry out some low paid sewing machine work from their flat. I have just set up a fundraiser for my Aunty, here is the link if you would like to donate any amount that you wish: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/mumbai-aunty-fundraiser?utm_term=PmBjrmXgr I would like to be able to give her the money raised and be able to simply say to her: "Please do what you wish with it to make your life a bit easier". Having visited her again in 2012 & 2017 I was even more humbled when I met my Masi and saw her flat again largely because of my maturity and life experiences here in the U.K. I humble myself when I think of my Aunty, May God Bless my Masi and her family. (This video is from our archive and was recorded on Christmas Eve on Sunday 24th December 2017). The language spoken in this video is Gujarati . Here's a link to a previous video that I recorded on Thursday 2nd February 2012: https://youtu.be/WpUFYJKN3SE Masi's apartment flat is in the Mazgaon district of Mumbai, (but could just as well be in New York in America where the tiny house movement is really gaining popularity). He is richest, who is contented with least; for contentment is the riches of nature. --Plato The music used towards the end part of the video and photos slideshow is Dhaka by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution licence (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1400003 Artist: http://incompetech.com/

Why Japanese Are So Thin According to Science

Why are Japanese people so thin? What do people eat in Japan? While the rest of the world is seeing anywhere from 15 to over 30% of its population severely overweight, Japan has managed to keep that number at just 3.6%. When it comes to health tips, it's better to turn to the country with the longest life expectancy and one of the lowest obesity rates on the planet. If you’re ready to find out how the Japanese manage to stay so effortlessly thin, keep our new video! In Japan, they usually stick to 3 wholesome meals a day that don’t leave them hungry or dealing with sudden cravings. Those who do snack keep it in small quantities and with a lot of moderation. Also, the secret to Japan’s success begins with their diet, which is pretty carb-heavy and low in saturated fats. Their main dishes of choice include vegetables, grains, fish, and meat. Dairy products and fruits are consumed in moderation. They tend to stay away from foods with excessive amounts of salt and sugar, like burgers and soda.

Their main dishes of choice include vegetables, grains, fish, and meat. - Just like the rest of the world, a lot of Japanese people have a hectic schedule that doesn’t leave a lot of time or opportunity to prepare a home-cooked meal. In that case, they can turn to their version of fast food, which is usually a lot healthier and resembles home-style cooking. - Most Japanese people have very regulated meal times. They eat 3 filling meals a day, with breakfast usually happening between 8 and 9am, lunch from 12 to 1pm, and dinner between 6 and 8pm. - It’s a lot more common for Japanese children to walk or cycle to school. Of course, other countries have a lot of reasons why it might not be efficient or safe for kids to hoof it to class. - Portion sizes have been on a steep rise in the last 20 years throughout the world. For example, countries like Australia, Canada, Germany, the U.S., and the U.K. have much larger fast food portions than Japan. - Separate bicycle lanes and plenty of safe areas for pedestrians are common sites in Japan. This allows the Japanese to naturally burn calories as they commute to and from work or school every day. - Tea, especially the green variety, is the number one beverage in Japan. Green tea has been praised for having a ton of major health benefits, like increasing metabolism, burning fat, fighting anxiety, and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, to name a few. - The practice of using chopsticks also helps in weight management, since they make you eat more slowly and in smaller bites. This slow process of eating helps people catch when they’re feeling full and avoid eating too much. The fact that food is served on a bunch of plates also slows down the process. - The number one way that the Japanese stay thin has to do with removing distractions and being mindful about the process of food consumption. Eating in Japan is treated with respect.

This is an inside look of a typical Japanese family's house in Tokyo Japan. This is a very common home in Tokyo. Unlike many people who rent Tokyo Apartments, this is a rented Tokyo House. The design of the Tokyo Home is very similar to other Japan homes except maybe the basement and attic.
