    Give it time with declining birthrate and stagnate economy most will realise that foreigners will be a necessary leaser base. Or they lose money. Its almost like money isnt worth less just cause its from from foreigners.

    What a small world! I live here in Antipolo City with my family, and we constantly go to Metro Manila every now and then. Antipolo City probably the best pick if you would like to get your own house and swim around on resorts, which is scattered all around. But, oh well, you will never enjoy the traffic here. I swear.

    I mean it's pretty good and all, but does anyone else the absolute lack of greenery?? Like so many Japanese streets just look downright depressing in my opinion because it's just so artificial, and there's no trees and grass anywhere, if there is, there's only a little bit. Also doesn't help that the overall architecture of buildings is so ugly and depressing and devoid of any style and colour. Just concrete squares. Looks like something out of the Soviet Union. Just a little remark. Anyone else get this??. I mean parts like 40:30 really do stand out to me since the overall layout and planning of this street actually looks VERY NICE, it feels modern, clean, and most of all, NATURAL. I got exhausted from the amount of concrete roads and bland colours in like 10 mins imagine living there, crazy depressing. I don't understand why the Japanese government doesn't plant more trees and create more greenery around the the roads and footpaths, it would honestly make life much less depressing and daily life much more soothing to get through.

    In my country, most OT are free. Companies wont pay you. Even if you work OT per hr would have no difference with the regular working hrs. Like per hr is US $1.25-3. Again, you'll be lucky to be paid with OT but very small amount. 😭😭😭

    Could the shinto traditions maybe be compared to for example celebrating Christmas in the west? A lot of people celebrate Christmas even if they're not Christian and it's just seen as a tradition.

    I feel like you and David have a really good rhythm! Loved this. I've been carrying around a 5 yen coin in my wallet for about a decade now that I grabbed off eBay as a teenager. I was beginning to be interested in Japanese culture, love coins with holes in them, and heard they were good luck! I think when I finally go to Japan I'll offer it at a Jinja and get a new coin to carry with me. Now I'm pretty excited to visit a Jinja knowing I already have my offering, haha

    You are making great videos. I can't believe you don't make documentaries for Japanese television. Is it because you don't speak the language fluently? I can't figure it out. You are a natural documentary film maker. Keep up the good work, I have a feeling you are going to do very well for yourself.

    The floating head phenomena is something not only on Japanese TV, it's also in Eastern literature in general. You always have a chorus, just like the Greek plays, which cue you into how you should behave or what the "crowd" thinks while watching/reading the current scene.

    This is very insightful. Though you think a god wouldn't need money. Then again I don't know much about Noragami, I've only listened to the openings. But when I wrote one of three historical essays and 6 paragraphs I talked about Shintoism. The book I use mentioned the Izanagi and Amaterasu. And washing before going in an Onsen does make sense in how it's a form of Kami.

    i thought i would already have a good image of shinto .... but your video and the excellent explanations gave me totally new view. thank you very much. I'm from Germany. to be precise the former GDR. I was raised without a religious background. I do celebrate the Christian major events, but not due to my believe in the relegion. They were and still are national holidays and are celebrated by "everyone". Now I'm in my 40's and think about the isolation me and my family experience in the city wherr we are surrounded by strangers. A social connection with people in the neighbourhood or near surrounding is missing. A religion or another kind of action/belive system/habit/.... would be nice to create such bondings. in a society of "me" there is no society... society develops because of people which think of themselfs as "we". But as i write this.... there are quite some groups or classes of people that do match these criteria. People with identical political views, people in clubs to perform a hobby or working colleagues. but i think or more precisely feel they are all leaking something ... I'm sorry i can't explain it very good.
