Beach Fun in Japan!

Hi everybody!

It’s our first time going to the beaches in Japan. And, for my first impression, this might have been the wrong time to go. Wrong time for me, that is. It might be perfect for you. We went on Tuesday, when everyone was still at work, but University students were off, so we saw nothing but really young and attractive and superfit people. Like, genuine bodybuilding dudes in thongs, and I think that within any field of vision the collective body fat of all people was under 50% tops. Just six packs and abs everywhere. None of them probably ate any Kakigori over the past 3 years. Heck with that! We’re old and married, and have grown softer over the years. But this random supermodel day was supposedly just fluke timing. Next week is Obon, and lots of people have time off, so that’s when you’re going to see softer bodied parents with crying children.

We went to Kamakura, which is a straight subway ride from Shibuya station. After getting to Kamakura station, we took an old-timey subway (the train was so old and cute!) to Yuigahama, and from there we only had to walk for a few minutes before we got to the beach. We could have gone to the beaches of Zushi, but we were told that Kamakura had more huts, so we went there instead. The whole ride there from Kichijoji took an hour and a half, and – I gotta be honest – is a lot better of an experience than what I remember as a kid. Driving for a couple of hours to get to Wasaga beach, sitting through traffic, trying to find a place to park, packing lots of food that got cold by the end of the day. Doing it this way is a lot better. Taking a subway to a beach with tons of food, drinks, and toys around? Hells yeah!

We didn’t take that many pictures this time around, since we did more filming than anything, but we’ve got a few that we’d like to share. Check em out!

Oh, and hey, did you like that Eat Your Sushi towel? We’ve got some made, and if you’d like to buy some, our store is back up! We’re in the process of adding more to the store, but for now, you can get the towels while the getting is good. Pick up an Eatyoursushi towel here, and some stickers as well! Just a heads up: this will be our first time shipping out of Japan, so things might go a little more slowly than how quickly we shipped in Korea. Back then we had a whole routine and schedule for it. We’ve got to get the engine started here a bit, so we’re sorry if things go a bit slowly.

We used the Eat Your Sushi towel to cover our tattoos. The beach had a no tattoo rule. Supposedly there was a Yakuza related stabbing, and so now there’s no tattoos, music, or alcohol allowed on the beach (though you can buy alcohol at the huts, which doesn’t make sense). Well, since the mayor instilled these rules, supposedly tourism dropped by 50%, which sucks! The beaches are awesome, but the rules are not. And though there weren’t lots of tattoos, we did see a bunch of tattoos on people, so the rules weren’t strictly followed by everyone. We walked around with our towels over our shoulders most of the time, and sometimes our tattoo would peak through, and we heard the people working at the huts talk about how they liked our tattoos, so it seems like the people working at the beaches don’t care much for the rule themselves, either.

Anyhow, we had a fantastic time here, and didn’t get as burned as we thought we would! We left the day a little redder than before, but the next day we felt alright. Ah, thank you Japan for your gentle and forgiving sun. Thank you Kamakura for the lovely beach, and thank you university students for motivating us to hit the gym.

We’ve also got some bloopers from this video, so if you feel like watching a little bit more, check it out below!

  1. This was a really fun video! I wish the beaches in California had more fun stuff like that on the beach itself. Some of the beaches where I live have the city streets close by so you can go up to walk up or dine in restaurants at least- but it’s not as casual and fun I feel. I used to live in the Midwest and we’d go to lake Michigan and the beach we went to there (Weko beach) had a few large huts like that where you could go in in your swimsuit and get ice cream and snacks and things like that, so that was something I grew up with and I miss a lot. Thank you for the video as always!

  2. I love that swimsuit, Martina! It’s the same one you had from the Danang video (where Simon’s shorts were dissed lol) — you look so cute & sassy ^_^. I had no idea that the water in Japan (maybe just at that beach?) was so “flossy”: did it actually feel icky or was the seaweed soft enough that you totally forgot about it after a bit? Dan had his eyes so open under water & it didn’t look like it hurt. Here in California, the beach water’s so salty it stings the eyes… well, that’s how I feel at least lol ;). Another fun video & happy to see all the fun you’re having in Japan!

  3. This looked like so much fun and such a great way to spend the summer. I generally like going to the beach normally but the level up of this beach was amazing! It’s nice to be able to get real food and real drinks. Most times I’m lucky if the food stand is selling hot dogs >.>

    • Ah! Thanks for the heads up. I fixed it now.

      Side note, I’ve messed up this post more than any post I can remember in recent history. First I forgot to put anything up top, and then I did. Then I realized I forgot the bloopers, so I posted it on the bottom AND top. Ah. So many brainfarts

      • Wait, you replied? Woah, I’ve never been responded to by famous youtubers before. I’m a huge fan of you guys and have been watching your awesome videos since you’ve been making them. Thank you for everything. You are totally welcome and I totally get it, I get brain farts all the time and flub up the silliest things.

  9. Great video guys, Kamakura has some great food places, there is a little street near the station called Komachi-dori, it is loaded with great restaurants and shops, could be worth a visit for another day trip. Love you guys and your video’s. :-)

  10. Ah, beach times are the best times! Hope you guys had a blast. :) This definitely looks like a place you’d find me at during the summer. Speaking of summer, have any of you been keeping up with the Olympics? If so, out of curiosity, do you root for Canada, Korea, or Japan during the games?

  12. I went to Kamakura and Enoshima in February last year. It was so beautiful. Cold obviously but the sky and the sea were so blue and the air so fresh and clean. Worth a visit in the winter, too. I went to a really beautiful temple in Kamakura and some of the trees had blossoms already. Then I took that adorable old train to Enoshima. The island was great, too. Lots and lots of steps, but they have escalators to the top if it’s too much to walk. I’ll never forget that day.

  13. LMAO!!! Love you guys so much!!! Whenever I’m down and I watch your videos, it turns my day around.
    I’m so jelly…I’m originally from Greece and, don’t know if you know, we have some pretty fantastic beaches there. The water is always a clear, intense blue and most sandy beaches shallow warm waters.
    Since I’ve moved to the States, nothing but murky cold ocean waters infested with sharks.. :P
    I really wish you will go there one day (go in the summer, ideally in June-July, or September-though water is cooler in fall). We have so many islands and beaches, you find secluded beaches with not many people and, as long as you bring your own provisions, you can have a spectacular time, sharing it only with your favorite people!

  16. What a fun day, I enjoy every minute of it. Martina always wearing the must beautiful clothing. Where does she get them? Always great to see both of you and Dan.

  17. I could not stop laughing at the fuck bringer.
    You guys didn’t know about the watermelon game? I kept seeing it in animes/manga but I didn’t think it was an actual game (nor were they specific on the rules). It looks like so much fun. Simon needs to be drawn as a Samurai – especially because at 10:11 in the video, he talks to the stick/sword. LOL

    If I ever get to Japan, I am definitely going to the beach. I love the beach! And yes, I agree taking the train is better than driving for hours in traffic and carrying loads of food & drinks. It takes me about an hour to an hour and a half to get to the beach (by train) & all I bring is a blanket, beach towel, a sandwich, and a frozen bottle of water. And then I can sleep on the train on the way back home. :D

    Martina! I love your cherry swimsuit! Cute!! Or should I say, kawaii? :3
    And you guys…teasing us with Dan…smh. XD

  18. Hey guys. Did Martina ever figure out her obi for her yakata? Much love.

  19. I have a feeling Dan knew you guys were joking and went ahead with it any way.
    I have always wanted to play Suikawari after being introduced to it through anime and manga, it looks like you guys had so much fun :D
