Amazing Capsule Hotel & The Famous Shopping District Ginza

Watch Now:

In this video, we had an opportunity to check out a capsule hotel near Tsukiji Market called Tokyo Kiba Hotel. It was one of the coolest experience ever! Staying in a Capsule Hotel is quintessential japanese experience! You may think that it'll be a little clausterphopic upon seeing the coffin-like capsule, Honestly, the stay there was absolutely delightful. Maybe it triggered the caveman genes or something but we really loved it, so much so we started calling it, "The Bat Cave"! And Michelle started nesting... The bedding was surprisingly very comfortable the comforters were nice, think, heavy and warm and when you're ready to sleep you just pull your blind covers at entrance and viola- "Bat Cave". For $33 a night you can't beat that experience!!! You can check them out at tripadvisor.com. If you're going to be checking out Tsukiji Market, this is not a bad choice because its nearby!

Then right after, we checked out the famous shopping district Ginza! We found out that every weekend, a part of the main street in Ginza Tokyo is closed to traffic and the whole area becomes a large pedestrian area. So we decided to investigate. Upon seeing it, Jason Actually (beginning of the the Ginza Segment) exclaimed "WHOA! Expletive!"

Tokyo: Tuna Auction in Tsukiji Market & THE Best Breakfast EVER!

Watch Now:

Join us as we check out the world famous and largest Fish Market in the world, The Tsukiji Market in tokyo! Let us know what you think! Follow us on Instagram DestinationCosmoPodcast

In this short video, we checked out the Tuna Auction, where we had to deal with crazy 50 mile per hour storm while avoiding getting ran over by the zipping little Turret Trucks during our tour in Tsukiji inner markets. That was not fun at all... We had to make sure our camera gear did not get wet. Right after, we probably ate one best breakfast we've ever had, at one of the oldest restaurants in Tsukiji, called Kaisendon Oedo! It first opened in 1885 and the restaurant has been passed down by the same family since then! You'll see the owner in the video, old lady wearing a yellow jacket, hovering around the entrance making sure everything is clean and tidy.
Tsukiji Market (築地市場, Tsukiji Shijō) is a large wholesale market for fish, fruits and vegetables in central Tokyo.  Tsukiji Market is best known as one of the world's largest fish markets, handling over 2,000 tons of marine products per day.

Visiting the tuna auction

The number of visitors to the tuna auction is limited to 120 per day, the maximum number which the market's infrastructure can accommodate. Tourists, who wish to see the auction, have to apply at the Osakana Fukyu Center (Fish Information Center) at the Kachidoki Gate, starting from 5:00am (or earlier on busy days) on a first-come, first-serve basis. A first group of 60 visitors will be admitted to the auction between 5:25 and 5:50, while a second group of 60 visitors will be admitted between 5:50 and 6:15.


Visitors usually start lining up hours before 5am, and the maximum number is likely to be exceeded, in which case later arriving visitors will not be able to see the auction. Successful applicants will be able to view the auction from a designated visitor area. It is not allowed to view the auction from anywhere else or to use flash photography or to interfere with the business action in any other way.

Best Coffee Shop in Japan? % Arabica Coffee Shop in Kyoto

Watch Now:

This short video is about a beautiful coffee shop called % Arabica in Kyoto Japan near Yasaka Shrine! The coffee was so good and location was so incredible, that we were inspired to do a short  "commercial-like" video for it! We wanted to convey the awesome vibe and warmth that we felt over there as we waited for quite possibly the best perfect cup of coffee we've ever had.

The owner of Arabica, Kenneth Shoji, has won many awards within coffee industry and is considered a world class Coffee Connoisseur; Because of that, % Arabica  is considered one of the best Coffee Shop in the world. Check out Kenneth's Philosophy written in % Arabica's website (www.arabica.coffee), He talks about his history and how % Arabica came to fruition because of it. Really interesting read!

If you are ever in Japan and end up in Kyoto, you have to visit Arabica % and get a nice cup of coffee as you explore the world famous Higashiyama District nearby.

Traveling To Tokyo Japan

Watch Now:

Michelle and I had an opportunity to stay in Japan for 2 weeks. 

In this video we spent time in SFO where we were able to film some footage for our Intro Video, our interviews, and B roll. In the process we almost missed our flight but Michelle had something up her sleeve to save day. Then after 10 hours of no sleep/travel/flying we got to tokyo, only to spend another 2 hours of train ride to go to our Capsule Hotel near Tsukiji Market. Once we checked in, we ran and got some real food!

Join us as we travel from SFO to Tokyo!

San Francisco Street Food Festival

Watch Now:

Michelle and I decided to check out the 7th Annual San Francisco Street Food Festival located at Pier 70, industrial side of San Francisco.  We didn’t know what to expect other than having a fat belly at the end of the day…

Here’s an excerpt from their website:

The San Francisco Street Food Festival features the participant businesses of La Cocina, a groundbreaking food business incubator that has been serving the Bay Area since 2005. In collaboration with Noise Pop and The Midway, this year’s festival will also feature a rotating selection of the minds, hands and palates of the people that make San Francisco the best food city in this country, if not the world. These are the cooks and entrepreneurs, the dreamers and the doers, who put their taste to the test everyday and aspire to share something sincere with everyone they meet. They are who make us smile, they are the ones who make us hunger for more, and they are the ones who inspire us.

This event was an eye opening experience as it really showed us that San Francisco is a REAL Foodie Destination!

Travel Podcast Extra Content: Lake Como Italy

Watch Now:

This was a quick video we did while we were in Lake Como Italy early 2015. We didn't really shoot a lot of footage because we only stayed there for 3 hours. We didn't want to shoot the whole time and miss the experience! The footage that we did get was "ok"... Ideally we would shoot things at least 6 times but unfortunately for the sake of the video, and fortunately for our experience, everything we did was all in one take.

One thing is for sure though... Its beautiful over there and it was worth it!!!!
Stay Tuned to our San Francisco Episodes COMING SOON!!!
