Cape Soya is 1,000km from Tokyo at Japan's most northern point. In the height of winter we drive across a snowy Hokkaido to discover what's up there.
A HUGE thanks to Pete for joining! 🇺🇸 www.twitch.tv/premiertwo

NOTIFICATION SQUAD: To miss the Natsuki cameo in this video would be a crime! Well folks, you can't beat a good road trip and this was easily one of the most fun videos I've produced in 9 years. A HUGE thanks to my best American friend PETE for coming along for the ride (even if his motives were questionable). You can find him over on Twitch where he streams most nights (🌟www.twitch.tv/premiertwo ) and I look forward to stopping by and doing some shows with him in a few weeks to celebrate surviving our journey.

Not sure if you talked about this on one of you videos but would you mind talking about hanko? I saw this woman on tiktok talk about it. I asked her questions like can foreighners have them? What if you have a similar name? Can others ask to copy your hanko and commit identity fraud? Etc but she hasnt replied to my questions. I tried to do research. Either im doing it wrong or its no where in the internet because i cant find answers

Chris I'm a week late to this vid (sorry) but can I just say that the two of you channeled the spirits of Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau perfectly. Or hell, even Tony Randall and Jack Klugman. I have just watched a 21st century remake of The Odd Couple. Thanks mate.

A journey consisting just of you, you, you. No need to leave your living room to do something like that. There is a world out there. There are people. Travelling and showing just you, you, you is strange.

Great video indeed, Chris. Would like to see even more esoteric places on Hokkaido island featured in future videos....it's my fav island in Japan. Places like Furano and some other outlying towns. Keep up the great job - excellent content and superb interactions between yourself and your guests!

If what happened in this video is all planned I really appreciate the thought you put into it. I mean, it can't be all coincidence lol. I really love it. I really like the images and landscapes, a voiceless version with just artistic imagery, like Chris know how to make, would be amazing!!

Watched a livestream of someone visiting Cape Soya. It was July or August and... it looked pretty much the same minus the snow cover. Still grey, windy, and cold. It's not a nice place to stay more than a few hours.

Absolutely loved the video shot in this, but hoooo boy this all felt super-forced and your American friend isn't nearly as funny as he thinks he is. (I say this as an American myself, who spent many summers on a farm in Kansas with my grandparents.) Please don't feature him too much in the future.

Englishmen, find an American friend. Yanks, seek the company of Brits. You all share a language (well, just about) but the nuanced cultural differences will force you both to think differently. Bonus points for touring Japan together.

I lived in Hakodate almost a decade ago. Back then, the shops would clear their entry ways and throw the snow on to the roads. Where cars would drive over it and pack it down. I didn't have a car, so I walked on those slippery roads. I wonder if it's still like that.
SinisterMD Dag sedan
As a Kansan, I can assure you it gets cold here and we do drive in snow. Not often...but it does happen.

Maybe that's how the town got its name, similar to the story with the name for Kanguru? Russian traders come in and ask japanese locals "What is name of town?" Japanese locals reply "This one? I don't know, mate"
