Exploring My Tiny Japanese Apartment

Oh yeah what’s this in English? Do you know? “Cleaner?” Vacuum Cleaner! Vacuum Cleaner “Fucking”?? …”Cleaner”?? “Fack you” I can’t believe it’s been almost 4 year since I made my first video about arriving in Japan and my Japanese apartment. Back then I didn’t put any effort in
because no one was watching. And I remember in that video I spoke about
being waken up by a hawk who was living outside my window
and used to wake me up like 3 times a week. And funnily enough, I miss the hawk now because the hawk has been replaced by a gigantic freight train. That’s about 500 times as loud and it goes past my apartment about 7 times a day. I now live on Japan’s Pacific coast, before I lived on the Sea of Japan. And this side of Japan has a lot more seismic activities. Twice this month I’ve been waken up by earthquakes. Just last night I was waken up by a magnitude 4.8 earthquake that happened about 50 miles over there. And as the room was shaking I slowly looked up at the 30 kg air conditioning unit mounted to wall above my head and thought: “Is this a good place to fall asleep at night?” Err probably not! But I can’t be bothered to move the bed! It’s a lot of effort isn’t it? I was actually supposed to be giving an English lesson to one of my top students today but I thought: “why not kill two birds with one stone” Why not have the tour of the apartment and then bring him along and teach him English at the same time? A bit of a vocabulary practice, so without further a due The Tour of the Apartment! Let’s go!! Okay so we’re gonna go and check out the apartment! And give Natsuki an English lesson at the same time as well, I’m gonna point at different things and I want you to give me the English. Yes! Yeah? Yes! So let’s see the apartment and have an English lesson! I….what is this? Unbelievable! Only Pizza! Pizza menu! Deluxe! Every fucking day I get a pizza menu! Every time! Every time! Hey what’s that? This is awkward Thank you Oh again pizza! Again pizza! Unbelievable! Every day, every time! Pizza pizza pizza pizza pizza It’s like they know there’s a foreigner It’s like they know there’s a foreigner here, anyway.. let’s go!! I can’t believe that! In English what do you say? Store Stro.. Stro…. Stai… Stairs! Stairs! Stairs! This is stairs yeah! Heaven stairs! Heaven stairs! Closet! Closet! Good good good alright! And in here Some clothes! Chris fashion Nice! What do you think of this? Good color It suits me! Nice space!! Yeah, it’s all in one room! One floor? One floor! Only kitchen? Only a kitchen I can’t work out if that’s good or bad. Yeah it’s altogether so it’s the first time in my life my bed and my kitchen are in the same room. I mean it’s good and bad I personally don’t like living in the kitchen. This is the same space but you can’t have it all! So what’s your…what do you think? Woah woah woah woah! Short! Errr yeah short! And the water Good sink! Good sink! It’s a good sink! Good sink! It’s a good sink! Alright let’s do some English testing! This? Err Toaster! Ooooooh very good!! Range? Rangy Lenjy? Lenjy? Oven? No Electric.. ..Box Electric Box Uh no microwave Microwave?!! Microwave??! Microwave??!! I really like that! “Electric Box! No, microwave! Microwave? Microwave! Microwave Refridge hydrator Refrigerator Refrigerator Nice one! Coffee! Coffee! And just…….. Easy..easy style! Easy style coffee yeah! Instant! Instant yeah yeah yeah This is….so when people ring When people at the front door.. Ooooh door phone? But it records a video It’s pretty creepy look! I don’t know who this man is! I don’t know who this man is.. but I can watch a video of people arriving and ringing my door. And it’s like a horror film. Mask man! Mask man! Yeah what the fuck, who’s this?? There’s three people There’s three people. They’re here again. Yeah so it’s pretty scary I don’t like that. This is my desk! And above my desk I like to keep something
to remind me of my aims yeah.. Nice wall! Nice wall! Yeah, let’s make the world a much better place! Much better place Let’s make the world a much much better place! Much much better! It’s very important I like to remind myself of that everyday! And….I definitely didn’t put it there this morning.. Um! So my breakfast! Nuts!! This is my breakfast, everyday I eat nuts! Everyday?!! Everyday! Every morning? Every morning I eat nuts and a banana! Or three.. This is my special mug Oh! Like a Magic!! Yeaaaah Good word! Good word..”Like a Magic” Like a Magic I like to write my ideas for How to Make the World a Much Better Better Place So I write it here. This is a pen. Great!! This is a pen! This is a pen! Yeaaaah Please draw my face. Genius at work! I don’t know if he can draw or not, I’ve never seen him! The humming is kinda creepy.. Okaaaaay Show me! Wooooaaaaah It’s just like me! I look like a fucking strawberry Strawberry? Strawberry face! Let’s make the world a much much better place!!! Oh yeah what’s this in English? Do you know? Cleaner? Vacuum cleaner! Vacuum cleaner! Fucking? …cleaner??!! Vacuu… Fuck you Fuck you Fuck you Vacuum cleaner! Ah! Vacuum! Vacuum! Vacuum cleaner! The Fucking cleaner And that concludes the tour of the apartment! If I had to choose between this one and my old one.. I’d probably prefer my old one just because I really liked the sliding doors. I liked the fact that the kitchen was separate from the bed area and I specially liked that the walls were made of concrete. Here they’re made of paper,
if not, something thinner! When I’m in bed at night I can hear
my next door neighbor snoring quite clearly and it’s not normal. Doesn’t feel right to have that in an apartment. Thanks for watching guys, we’re off now to the local arcade to win lots of stuff so we’ll see you next time, take care, thanks for watching! Or you can come join us and see
how much stuff we’re gonna win! Presumably..quite a lot!! Yeah! Let’s go! Game center! Let’s get! Yeah, let’s do it! One coin! Oooh my God!! Too heavy!!! Too heavy!! I’ll see if I can do it! Ooooh my gooood! I had it perfectly! This is bullshit I’m out of here! The next challenge! Easy we just got to knock.. We just got to knock this one off of there! This is some careful calculations going in here! The money’s gone in Oh fuck off!!! That was perfect!!! Easy!! You should!!! Easy! Easy! Easy!!

I've been learning Japanese for a few months now, but up until I heard Natsuki try to say "vacuum" I didn't realize that there's no "v" sound in Japanese.

You know, for someone just learning English, his accent isn't too bad. I'm sure at this point (since this video is almost three years old), he's probably a pretty good speaker.

An air conditioner needs to push out the hot air to the outside. So this air conditioner should be connected with the wall and an air tunnel should go outside. This means that it is very unlikely for it to crash on your head 🙂 The roof weights much more and it's much more likely that the roof collapses and crashes on you xD

Pffff actually there is a trick to empty those machines. I used to hate those a lot and did all sort of things.

1. Pay a small kid to fit through the damn thing if there is space. (I did that numerous times and my house was filled at one point with stuffed animals).

2. If the machines are stupidly made, place the hand in a way to just drop it in the hole.

3. When no one is looking budge the machines n’ throw em in the hole ?

4. Fake coins to replay, you might find on eBay some or from supermarkets that copy real coins of the used currency.

No kidding if YT would allow us to upload pics, your mind would be blown away.

I used to exploit a lot there devil machines.
