In a few hours, the winds of typhoon Hagibis are going to hit Tokyo in full force. Right now, as we upload this, the winds are already loud. We’re not sure how serious it’s going to be, but everyone we know is freaked out. Grocery stores have been cleaned out. Every shop is closed. Public transportation and airplanes are all stopped. We’re going to show you a bit of what the atmosphere here in Tokyo is like, we’ll show you a bit about how we’re prepping for the storm, and give you a couple of useful apps.
We’ll keep you up to date with what’s happening in Tokyo over on our Twitter and Instagram. Check those out:

UPDATE: ok, I think the worst of it is over. The wind has totally died down here. We get random bursts of wind but rarely now. It’s still raining but not heavily. And our friends in the city are saying the same. Though a few of our friends got flooded, no one is hurt. We’ll see what it’s like tomorrow!

I’ve watched this so many times & it’s not even Hurricane Season. Makes me FEEL SO MUCH BETTER (this sounds really messed up but it’s a Solidarity, I’m with y’all thing, I PROMISE LOL) seeing someone else get as scared & worried as I do when I big storm is coming to hit our favorite places at the beach. I just feel better knowing someone else cries too. We live in Southern Alabama so Def not as bad as the Gulf Coast but we still get heavy rain,flooding,wind & tornadoes bc Usually, not always, but usually we get the winds on the right side of the hurricane which are the usually the most powerful winds in the hurricanes we get. Our family are lucky Duckies like y’all & our house is on a elevation too. 💗💗💗🙏🏻💕💕💕💕☂️☂️☂️☂️☂️☂️☂️☂️☂️💕💕💕💕💕💕💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗 I feel safer & justified watching you guys prepare like we have to.

As a German these rolling shutters are completely normal to me. Other European countries have them too, but basically every residential home in Germany have these. I really don't know how that hasn't caught on in places like North America, but then again, let's remember the Japanese washlet video.

Just watching this again because October 11th is my birthday and it happened to be the day before that huge typhoon so I basically just spend my day inside and online to figure out what the fuck was going on and how I as a foreigner can maybe help. I also have a half Japanese friend whose grandparents were pretty affected by Hagibis and that wasn't easy to hear about either because I've met them and yeah it just was a lto even for someone not even living in that country.
Holy heck- I almost dropped my drink when i heard her say "I have EDS"- I've never really seen anyone online with EDS- If you haven't guessed already, I have a pretty bad case of EDS. My mom has it way worse than me and my older sister is just as bad as me. It's cool to know there's someone out there who has EDS like me. :) I also have a dream and a goal to visit Japan, But my family isn't doing well with money, so that's kind of impossible. Wish me luck i guess. :)

During the 97/98 El Niño, we actually lost power and water for several days. I live in California, it was eerie! The streets were flooded to knee level but you couldn't get water to work in the house. My mom had stashed some 5 gallon buckets of water to use for flushing the toilets and washing up. You don't realize how accustomed you get to a hot shower until you have to use a cup out of a 5 gallon bucket that is freezing cold to wash up with...in the dark. Well, candle light but it was rationed strongly by mom cause we were poor. Not a fun time, but I know what things are important to have stocked in the event of an emergency.

Tips from a native Floridian: Freeze gallon jugs of water. Deep clean your bathtub before you fill it water, about 12 hrs in advance of the storm's touchdown. Any object outside will become a hazard. Do not be near the coast. There is such a thing as 'storm surge' which in essence is a tsunami caused by a storm. Storm surges are the main cause of death in hurricanes. If you think duct tape will hold your window, it wont. Buy a large amount of gasoline as soon as a storm is announced, and is headed in your general direction. Don't panic. Don't drive during the storm. Don't call emergency services unless needed direly. The eye-wall of the storm is basically a huge tornado, it will cause massive destruction if passing over residential areas. DO NOT WALK OUTSIDE AFTER THE STORM. Power lines often fall and can kill at a 5 meter radius. Buy water Use a generator only after the storm has passed. Call the appropriate office if you believe a tree will fall before a storm Everyone is stressed, everyone thinks they are the most important. If you do not have storm shutters, use thick plywood to cover your windows. IF YOU ARE CALLED TO EVACUTE, DO SO. YOUR LIFE IS NOT REPLACABLE. The eye of the storm may seem safe, but it is completely surrounded by tornado-force winds. During the storm, do not use candles or phone lines. During the storm, go to the room in your house that is centermost. Go to the ground floor Basements will flood Always buy batteries before hurricane season.

Japan has the hoarders too! I live about 200 miles inland from the east coast (southern US) and if anyone says "hurricane" or "snow," elderly ninjas spend three or four days before buying all the bread, bottled water, milk and TP. ALL the TP, and they will run you over to get it. I have no idea what they're eating, because it's never real food. The mind boggles.

“Typhoon season starts in May”..........oh great- I’m visiting Japan in May next year- such fun, such fun!😱🙄🤷‍♀️🙏
redfish337 7 ヶ月 前
Don't worry about it. It's not really May. Ny nature of the Pacific Ocean, typhoons can hit pretty much any time. But the season itself, it's more July-September, with it going into October about half of the time. And they generally get stronger the later into the year so even if there's some activity in May it's probably just going to be a tropical depression. Which is basically nothing. June often gets these lesser storms but May even those are uncommon. The last hurricane strength storm in May was in 2015. There were two. One hit Japan, though I think it was far below hurricane strength when it hit. Oh, btw, I was there then. It set some records since it was unseasonably early. But it was still nothing. I have it marked on my travel log. But I still went to the event I had planned. It was windy and rained on the way back to my hotel. Next day everything was 100% normal. That was about as bad as it gets in May. Maybe if you were trying to land or takeoff then you'd get delayed or diverted. And maybe if it was a day storm shinkansen would get delayed or cancelled. But it was basically nothing.

Okay. I love you guys alot. I am also a hydrologic engineer for a government office in flood control. I am actually kinda upset that you got that close to the flooding water at the park and rode your bikes in the rain. Flash flooding can easily knock you off of your bikes or feet really easily. It can seriously hurt you really easily. I have seen too many people lose their lives for footage at work. Please no in the future. The video isn't worth your lives.

Trivia: (1) The typhoon that damaged the Philippines is a Japanese-originated International name called Washi (Eagle), although the most destructive is the Chinese-originated name of Haiyan. (2) On the other hand, the typhoons that struck Japan are Filipino-originated International names of Maliksi (meaning quick, agile, or nimble), and the latest is Hagibis (meaning Speed).

I am glad you guys are safe! Thank you for braving the storm to show us what it's like. I also wanted to comment and let you know that, although I don't usually comment on videos, I've been subscribed to your channel for over 2 years now and you have really inspired me. You were my first introduction to the idea of teaching in Korea, so I wanted to share that I just learned today that I've been accepted to EPIK and will be going to teach English in Korea this spring! Thank you for showing me how wide and wonderful this world is, and for also showing me it's something I can experience if I put my mind to it. You guys are such an inspiration to me.

Hey! I hope to hear from you guys again soon. Martina, i hope youre doing well. I imagine the pressure changes from the typhoon really affected you. Anyways, can’t wait for an update :)
Hagibis in my country's language means fast and strong, and was usually a name of warriors. Whoever thought of naming a storm Hagibis has a problem.

These are all typical preparations for Floridians during hurricane season (with the addition of evacuation). It's great that the Japanese take it so seriously. I was really surprised when Korea didn't take this past Typhoon seriously. Luckily it was just *really* windy northwest of Seoul.

I'm going to Japan in January. I'm a little nervous cause of all the scary weather updates. How is it in Jan (normally)? (I'm going to Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, maybe up north)
redfish337 7 ヶ月 前
Cold, probably the coldest of the year, but, probably no snow. The lows tend to dance just above freezing, and it's the relative dry season. If you get any it's rare for it to stick. The short days, cold weather, and the matter of being the exhale after the holiday season make January perhaps the quietest month of the year. Things inside are generally kept fairly toasty, so you'll want to dress in layers. If you go significantly north of Tokyo you'll almost certainly run into snow.

The winds were only 120 mph. What was the fuss about? :P Edit: But really, though. I think you guys did good to prepare the way you did. It's important to take these things seriously in case the worst case scenario _does_ happen

The typhoons/hurricanes these days are crazy--stronger than ever. STY Hagibis just brushed passed us before making its way to you guys there (we're in the Northern Marianas Islands). We were lucky to be spared from the worst of the it this time but not so lucky for Japan. We all learned our lessons from STY Yutu and STY Soudelor so it's best to be overprepared than not! Hope the other typhoon that just left us (TY Bualoi) will spare Japan (it's heading that way again).

Guys: crackers store well and an alternative to bread and empty shelves. You can make your own bread with a little yeast,salt,sugar,flour and water. Can also try biscuit mix or make your own, yeast not needed. I filled bathtub during hurricane Sandy. FYI- a lot of the flooding in Brooklyn came up through plumbing and storm drains. Thankfully I had no problems. Fruit stand a few blocks away stayed open through out, so I understand how you felt about coco store. I call the stand "my store", still.

@redfish337 thank you for all the info :) all the best
redfish337 7 ヶ月 前
@Belinda Lloyd Okay, in AUD it's not too off what I'd expect then. I'm definitely a night owl, it's not too much of a problem at hostels. I'm usually at something until 10-10,30 PM, and then often eat, so not even back until ~midnight. But it's nice to be able to get your own space if you can. I've gotten a system to not easily be bothered, but if the place has 20 beds and you're staying a month, frankly SOMEBODY is going to be sick, and having your own space decreases your chances of catching something. You're just breathing your own clean air. Anyway, good luck with the prep.

redfish337 7 ヶ月 前
@Belinda Lloyd You shouldn't miss it if you're swinging with a 1 month bat, hahaha. But your starting date is too late to be able to keep prices down. Last year the cheap airfare blackout dates were between March 14th and April 3rd, but still make sure you do your shopping for it. There are budget options where you don't have to share a room. If you're going for a whole month you should definitely try to keep it under $70 a day if you can. There are some hostels with solo-rooms as well, which may be helpful if you're trying to find some people to do things with. I don't know your age bracket, but all hostels don't have all young people. But overall hostels have more of the sorts of people who would be down to go try something new together. I don't know where you're coming from or if we're talking USD, but I think you could probably get your 5680 stuff more in the 3500-4500 USD range or so.

@redfish337 thanks so much for your info so helpful. I was looking at going march 23rd 2020 till april 19th 2020 hoping i dont miss it. I dont like sharing a room . I tend to spend more to be comfortable and love food. So all up itll cost me like... 5680 flights, insurance ,jr pass, 3 and half weeks accomdation and then i Was gunna take about 3000 spending money . i could make it alot less but i want to be in good locations and comfortable rooms. Ive planned out where i wanna go and what ill be doing each day but i guess if i can find a tour for cheapier it would be worth it. Its hard... Ive just never gone on a solo trip so not sure how ill go id hate to get there and not want to go out alone. A group trip could be fun but i guess itll depend what they do on it. Id love to see cherry blossom but im gunna plan out my whole trip and have hotels paid before i like knowing what im doing and have an idea of where ill be. Im sure im gunna get lost as hell tho. But i know if i dont push myself ill never do it. Thats really what this trip will be for me. I love japan and like to learn as much as i can i also wanna just walk around visiting all the pretty gardens and temples while trying all the food haha
