In this video, I walk you through Universe, a huge Japanese grocery store in Northern Japan. The fruits, vegetables, meat, soju, sake, and ramen galore! It’s a little… different from the States.
All our videos to travel on a budget and our travel journey around the world.

We Took a Frozen Train to the Snowiest City on Earth
In this video, I take you on our New Year’s trip. We spent the night in Aomori City, Japan – the snowiest city in the world. It averages 26 feet of snow per year. Check out the views, the snow, the food, and the sights to see. It even started snowing inside the train!

Tokyo Finally Opened!
In this video, I take you with us on our trip to Tokyo. It finally opened! Tokyo is different in a post-COVID world because the number of people is so drastically reduced. That may be one positive benefit of COVID. Check out our hostel, some tips to save money when traveling to Tokyo, and the things we saw!
Our Trip to Sendai, Japan
In this video, we took a trip to Sendai, Japan. Since Japan is still locked down, we were almost the only non-Japanese people there, but we had a great time.
