We're gonna rent some bicycles I've got electric bikes over here, which are good if we get kind of tired And I've got some other bikes over here without a motor They have all the important information in English so if you don't speak Japanese Don't worry too much this place is really convenient for English speakers It looks so pretty I'm so excited So this is where we are right now Otsu-eki and our first stop is going to be This cafe right here for lunch right on the coast of the lake I cannot wait We've made it to the edge of the lake it's so big it looks like the ocean it smells like the ocean too I feel like I'm on a beach Weather is so nice. I was so lucky. It was actually supposed to rain today, and I think it might later a little bit But right now. It's perfect. It's cloudy. It's not a million degrees. I'm happy So for lunch they have lots of options, and there's a couple of vegan options here This looks like a whole set with a whole bunch of different things to try. Vegan cake! I don't know what to start with There's so many! It's so good This is delicious the vegetables taste sooo fresh This is a brand-new vegetable for me. I've never seen it before it's called a shikaku-mame, square bean It's a bean. It looks like a sea creature It's crunchy and it kind of tastes like a green bean but it's a little more... it's got a little more moisture to it. It's not as dry All right. We're already off to our next location! I'm gonna be going to Omi Jingu Which is a shinto shrine and I'm going to be doing something really fun there I'm gonna be wearing a special type of kimono It's one of the super fancy ones with lots and lots of layers. I cannot wait! I'm so excited this place is sooo pretty The weather is holding up it hasn't started raining yet. It was supposed to start right about now But the sky's still looking slightly cloudy Not overly bad, so I think I was pretty lucky So this is the type of kimono I'll be wearing, it's called juni (12) hitoe 12-layered ceremonial kimono Konnichiwa! Look at all the kimono the anime so a movie was filmed at this shrine, and this is the outfit that one of the characters wore Ohh it's heavy So I was told that I can choose whichever kimono I want. this one's really pretty So hard to choose! I really like this gold one. This is really pretty. I think I might choose this one Alright, I'm gonna attempt to sit down and pose my kimono so that it looks nice Well that was awesome, I really like how they just kind of leave you to it And you can try on whatever kimonos you like if you brought your own Chucky You could take as many photos as you like too and it only costs $10 It's 1,000 yen, and you get one of the instant photographs included with that So these are really tiny kimonos These are for three year olds. In Japan, they celebrate when you become 3 years, 5 years and 7 years so they have all the kimono you would need for that here Wow Wooow They have everything here We've arrived at our hotel, I'm gonna get a quick little tour of the inside now wow It's nice in here So they have an Italian restaurant It smells great. I'm getting hungry, and they also have a Japanese restaurant This is where I will be eating tonight. So look forward to see what kind of food they have prepared for me They also have a swimming pool, but it's closed because summer is almost over But if you come in the summer you can swim And have an amazing view of Biwa Lake right beside you there's a souvenir shop inside the hotel too So if you want to grab some souvenirs for your family apparently, this is a fancy mochi it looks like it would be reaaally soft Their rice is famous too So their rice is probably used in all these mochi products here tea is famous in this region as well Tea is famous in this region as well So there's lots of kinds of green tea here these little fish fish sweets are soo cutee Biwa Lake cider Time to check out my room! I'm so exciteddd Let's go Wow Here is the shower room. It's a whole room for showering you can get this whole area wet It's awesome Sink area Got some shampoo and stuff The bedroom area is so pretty. I love the blue ocean theme So I picked up some of the famous mochi at the gift shop Couldn't pass that up because they looked really soft and delicious, so let's give them a try It looks like this, they kind of look like dango They're on sticks and then lots of what I think is matcha powder Not pure matcha obviously That would be intense But matcha flavoured... kinako, maybe? It's matcha flavour They're just as soft as I imagined they would be. Wow I can see why this is famous This is some of the best mochi I've ever had Mmm. They're so soft it melts in your mouth. You guys will love this It's almost dinner time so I think I'm gonna head downstairs to the restaurant that I showed you earlier Ohmi. The Japanese-style restaurant, and they have prepared a special vegan dinner for me They've already brought out one of my favorite dishes which is yuba~ It's tofu skin You dip it in wasabi and soy sauce. It's delicious. Fig. That's really interesting. I don't think I've ever had a fig before It reminds me a lot of sashimi the tofu itself doesn't have much flavor, so you really get the taste of the soy sauce and wasabi Kind of like a vegetarian sashimi All right, let's get this fig with sesame dressing a try my first time eating fresh fig It's so sweet It's really sweet and juicy melts in your mouth And here we have Tadaaa~ A beautiful cup of seaweed Very gooey seaweed. It's apparently really good for you Tastes delicious kind of vinegar flavour to it okay they just gave me the fanciest salad I've ever seen in my life So it's full of different superfoods like goji berries, quinoa, a bunch of different other vegetables And then I can make my own dressing here, however I like. We've got olive oil, salt, and lemon That's delicious It's so good I can't go back to regular salad So this one is a wheat gluten Apparently it's really chewy, and there's a miso sauce on top Mmm it's sooo good It's like a soft mochi Kind of like buckwheat flour mixed with a little bit of an earthy flavour Mostly, you just taste the flavour of the sauce Next, we have the aka konnyaku that we saw in the gift shop The texture is super squishy I don't know how to explain it It's like eating an eyeball Yeah, it's got a slight smoky taste to it but basically it's just like regular konnyaku, not much flavour so you just enjoy the flavor of the sauce that they put with it Did you see this? There's no gap They carved it like this That's awesome Matsutake are really expensive mushrooms You don't get to eat them very often, so really excited about that And I don't think I've ever had tempura with matcha shio before so that'll be new Alright, I'm gonna try the matsutake with just plain rock salt So good They're so flavourful Wow don't even need to put anything on it 'Cause it has such an earthy flavor already This is a vegetable nabe made with soy milk I'm excited for this one I love how they cook it at your table in these cute little pots My nabe is all ready to eat It smells really, really good And they give you fresh ginger To add into it which is just the perfect combination with the soy milk I love this I'm gonna try making this at home. Not sure exactly what they put in it I'm assuming some kind of vegetable base broth, and then the soy milk and maybe Yeah, I feel like that's all you need and then add a little bit of fresh ginger. It's sooo refreshing It's such a great flavor that goes with all the different vegetables and great with the tofu For dessert we have some fresh pears Look at how delicate that is. It's so pretty on a bed of ice to keep them nice and crispy I'm back in my hotel room now and enjoying my comfy bathrobe. I hope you guys enjoy day one of my trip I'll see you again in my next video for day two we're gonna be visiting a temple and Doing some interesting stuff there, and we're gonna be trying shojin ryori Which is like the food that monks eat, which is vegan so awesome And we're gonna be doing some of the cool stuff, so I hope you guys join me for that Thanks for watching! Bye guys!
