in this video I’m gonna take you inside of a Japanese matcha hotel in Kyoto so today I’m in Kyoto and I’m saying a real-deal killer style house with over 100 years of history also known as a kill matcha this particular one is called kiraku Kyoto Nisha rokkaku watches a traditional wooden town house is built using interlocking wooden parts and were popular with Kyoto merchants before World War 2 since Kyoto was saved from air raids during the war many of the matches are still around to this day but once torn down these matches will probably never be rebuilt so walking inside you truly feel like you’re a part of history so there are six different types of kill matcha but this one is a Sony Chi which means it has a high second floor ceiling especially when compared to the sushi unique IKEA matcha with low ceilings oh yeah having a garden in the back is another characteristic of the much in the garden and allows for more sunlight and air circulation in the house but it also creates a seamless blend between nature and living space and it looks like there’s a futon set up for us already Wow like this is really low foot so just if you’re tall I think you have to watch your head hit it but that’s just because it’s like old-school machi right [Music] hi [Music] when you first arrive you’ll be warmly welcomed with the tea ceremony I’m not crazy about much as some of you already know but having freshly with matcha is really quite on a whole new level it’s kind of like a lemon citrusy taste you can see it’s kind of like a gelatinous when it should like prepare your palate for the tea pretty much [Music] she just taught me how to do this and I think I’m gonna do it that they couldn’t say put your left hand on the bottom turn it once run it twice kind of pray a little bit thank you my supposed to slip Wow I’m learning a lot today you might know what to do ordering what why okay so what a lot of you guys don’t know because you’re probably gonna watch this after the fact today is the final episode for Game of Thrones and I really want to watch it so I’m gonna connect my laptop to the TV and we’re gonna watch it yes so that’s what we’re gonna do today for about an hour let’s just check the speed of the Wi-Fi here 12 megabits per second that’s not the fastest in the world but I think this should be fast enough for us to be able to stream Game of Thrones today alright time to set up the laptop [Music] all right so the PC is connected and made a stream I guess I’ll see you guys a little bit hey Mike how you doing I sleep better is to have really nice bathtub outside don’t you gonna turn it on first oh there’s a bug inside ow [Music] hey it was very fine dice little eyes and this helps a lot yeah I’m really happy now there’s a lot of restaurant around this area right all right I’ll leave you alone oh my god what arrived boy this looks so good anyways I think much I’m just gonna chill with my co tonight so I’ll see you guys tomorrow [Music] [Music] [Music] all right so I’m ready to start my day we’re about to have a big breakfast I think it’s coming on around 8:30 my co-sleeping upstairs so I’ll have to wake her up in a second but I’m still thinking about Game of Thrones and how it ended up I don’t know if I liked it I don’t want to spoil anything for you guys if you still haven’t watched it by now but anyways let me know what you guys thought of the ending yeah I guess it is what it is time to start our day like Oh time to wake up breakfast is coming wake up so I think we’ll get might go a little bit more time to get ready I usually go to sleep a lot earlier than Mike oh and I usually get up a lot earlier than r2 so so I guess we just let her sleep sometimes I don’t understand her and here comes our Keisuke breakfast good morning everyone so breakfast has been served I’m trying to just relook at my seat I’m actually not used to sitting on the floor very much probably some of you aren’t as well but I guess you just kind of get used to it living in Japan eventually but maybe not me so far but this is not right that’s Mike goes hand right there she’s pretty much she doesn’t really want to be on camera today so when you said this much a hotel you have the option to include breakfast or not this is a very traditional breakfast all these like little dishes are called Chi Seki and what it means is it just has a little bunch of little like almost like little appetizers that all go together to make one whole entire set meal so look at all this goodness I mean I don’t want to go through and bore you with all of the different stuff but I think like my favorites this is like a um cockade um go which is kind of like a sweet gelatin sauce and there’s a drink on inside so you can see right there that is that inc on in on cookie sauce it’s really delicious it’s almost like Chawan mushi like the consistency just a little more liquidy and this thing I don’t really know what it is until I take a bite but basically it’s fried it’s like tempura style so I’m probably gonna like it let’s taste it it has a seed in the middle there’s almost like some sort of root that they like put it and put up that’s nice that’s like I don’t think I’ve ever had that before the one thing about these kind of sticky meals is like it’s very seasonal so a lot of the stuff that they haven’t here it really depends on the time of year if you stay in one of these places then definitely I would recommend it at least trying the breakfast once oh and I was talking to the hotel also a little bit earlier they actually said that everyone had checked out the last afternoon and like people are coming today but if we wanted to can actually see the other rooms there are actually three other watches in the complex all connected to this one so let’s check out the other three the first one has a DOMA style entrance which back in the day meant straight up dirt you can see now though it’s been modernized pretty large futon mattresses here and then what’s nice is over there it looks like you have an N gamma which is a very like traditional Japanese kind of like balcony you kind of a sit on the balcony like you’re painting your feet over and two beds in the bedroom the second one has a very open entrance which I love you can see that there’s two bedrooms up here well there’s like a full queen-size bed and then you also have another private tatami room here so this one seems pretty similar to the first one yeah as you can see like since there’s four different rooms in this complex if you have a big family then it makes kind of a lot of sense to just like book all three are all four of the rooms and then you can actually stay together and if you’ve never stayed in a much in like this then you might as well like just try it once right so we were just in Kobe yesterday and these long trips are kind of hard because I never know what to do with my laundry this morning he just left so what I found out is that this much yet has a washing machine and dryer and there you go problem solved alright so what did you guys think if you like this video help me out and hit that like button if you want to see
