    I appreciate that you chose less common destinations (or coupled them with more famous ones). Of course, there is nothing wrong with mentioning places like Inuyama, Ise, Okazaki, etc. It makes a lot of sense and is helpful for new travelers to the region, but those places are so common and easy to find on one's own. The destinations featured here go off the radar a bit, so even travelers who are already familiar with the area may get some new ideas.

    Great ideas, some absolutely stunning places showcased here that look wonderful for the soul. Great job as always from Matt and the crew!

    I'm missing a bit the soul in your video compared to the other current/former staff writers. You need to be a bit more personal, talk to the camera while on the trip. This feels like it could have just been stock fotage instead (I know it's not). Also you could leave a bit more time to talk and show the places, 7 minutes is to short for the amount of places you covered, everything feels a bit rushed.

    01:05 Never ever put your lips to the ladle when you are purifying yourself at a chozuya. Instead pour water in your hand and rinse your mouth with that. 🙂

    Touching it with your lips is a huge no no, because it is unsanitary and seen as rude.

    You've shown us some really epic shots this time! Are you related to the infant Sam by the way? Also, you have a perfect narration voice. Like a dad reading a goodnight story for his children!
