    NOTIFICATION SQUAD: What'd you reckon? Could you be placed on Oshima Island randomly and live there? I'll admit, the spiders were something of a deal breaker.
    Another Wacky Weekend adventure from spiders and ATV's, to volcanoes and Japanese festivals - had an absolute blast as always. Special thanks to Daniel for being such a legendary guide.
    And thanks to Insta360 for sponsoring the episode with the awesome Insta360 Go 3. Having used their cameras for the last 3 years on Journey Across Japan and Wacky Weekend, it was a ton of fun experimenting with what may be the ultimate travel vlogging camera. ⭐Grab yours over here at: store.insta360.com/product/go-3?insrc=INRF3T8&utm_…

    Look i'm sorry but where is your Netflix series??? The quality of these videos is INSANE. Thank you for all the effort holy fk 👏👏👏👏👏👏
  • @yungje0n
    That old Japanese woman's outlook on happiness is honestly inspirational. Happiness for her doesn't stem from convenience and luxury, rather from wholeness of life; being one with world. Truly inspirational.
  • @DXPetti
    Wow - this is a genuine surprise. Thanks Chris and Connor for sharing Oshima with us. I feel like next time I go to Japan, I don't need to make my way down to Okinawa but rather get the same vibes with a 30 min sauna flight instead right out of Tokyo! Love it
  • @CoupleaNerdz
    Seriously though!! Chris is a natural documentarian!

    Turning a whacky weekend into a little documentary with stunning shots - this is what I love!!!
  • This was so good. I would happily watch a 10 episode series of this trip. ❤
  • @kinneas
    The people on the island are so friendly. Kanagawa-san is a true G.
  • Nice to hear you speaking Japanese with such ease and confidence, Chris.
  • @t5540
    Chris!! Speaking japanese with the locals again?!?! So amazing to see. The confidence, the execution. Great work man. Know you wanted to start doing that again.
  • It is a well-edited video, as always. I love it when Chris interviews local people, who give the sense of what it's like to live there.
  • Hands down most unexpectedly heartfelt video I saw from Chris this whole year! Idk why, but Kiri-san, Kanagawa-san, and even the worker in the restaurant that asked for the correct word for the menu - so cute, so real! The festival looks straight up from the Wanokuni arc in One Piece, with everyone dancing. Amazing, really
  • @StrayHat
    I always love it when Chris talks to the locals to get their perspective. Added to his own experience it gives a nice, broad view of these places.
  • @arthea3445
    So, just so you know, I've long dreamed of visiting Japan, but due to (not only) economic reasons, I never could. Now finally, I'm coming toTokyo in 2 weeks, attending a language school for three months with the GoGoNihon program, which I came to know thank to your videos. Let's just say that watching your videos, slowly gave me that little something I needed to decide to just do it, so... Thank you a lot. (Sorry for my broken english)
  • @frostern8213
    Kanagawa-san's energy is contagious and i cant help but smile when she said "no mos burger"
  • @PM-bv1ir
    Love that he interacted with Japanese people and helped them fix the phrase. Wanna see more of Chris interacting with the locals. Love watching you sponsor items too. :)
  • How awesome was Kiri San ? What a treasure❤
    This island is way up on my bucket list now. Another epic Wacky Weekend
  • @gaia7350
    chris talking with the locals is just such a nice change to see on video... that reminds me of the time he interviewed multiple people after the 2011 earthquake and how it affected their life.
    These last few months I was thinking about what was left for chris to explore in Japan but seeing these small interviews and stories about random people in Japan give me hope that Chris can make so so much more content about this beautiful country and its people
  • @olinakin
    Chris is getting so much better at speaking Japanese on camera, I love it!
  • @inksmears
    There's this tiny little spider that's been crawling around on my ceiling the past few days that was making me nervous, but after watching this video I now look at it in relief. I don't think visiting remote corners of Japan would be for me so thanks as always for showing them to us! 😂 Your filmography continually impresses me!
