      Sharla is the best! She was one of the first original foreigners in TheXvid about Japanese life and culture!! She's a legend in her own right.

    I love how Chris acts like the supportive dad that has little clue about what Sharla is doing but is all for it as long as she's happy.

      @Kayden Parks What do "uwu" and "otp" stand for?

    • Cherry Blossom

      @_-A_c-_ omg yes. This reminded me of those moments where, for example, some known couple get separated (be it youtubers or whatever) and the fans act in a way as if ''love is dead'' or ''if they didn't make it that means there is no hope for me'' , etc.
      And I'm like... wtf is wrong with people 😂 (don't get me started about the constant shipping with anyone and everyone [talking in a more general manner about anyone]).
      Some people need to go out and touch grass 😂 live a little (instead of living through other people)
      Edit: typo

      @ohyeahdatsnotmeanymore Don't do this to people. I can't watch any Sharla and Chris video without seeing people being weird and invasive about their private lives. Making jokes like that is not funny. Going "uwu chris x sharla my otp" is not cute. It's weird and creepy and if I was Sharla or Chris I would instantly block you.

      JEALOUS! The only strawberries we get here are either California strawberries, which are very large, almost bitter, flavorless, and meh, or Oregon strawberries, which are nicely sweet, Far too small, and go off in like... twelve minutes.

      @infernos Dante which one? Chris has a rather educated palate with respect to fried chicken 🍗

    This video is an excellent illustration of why being a collector isn’t necessarily about the end result - it’s about the journey getting there.

    • Pokemon LID Adventures
      Pokemon LID Adventures 3 months ago

      this is exactly how i feel! that is life!

    • TacComControl
      TacComControl 3 months ago

      It Absolutely is about the Journey, and it's important to remember while you're on that Journey that you can definitely do it as long as you Don't Stop Believing, even if you and the people you're collecting with end up going their Separate Ways, just remember that you can Faithfully accomplish whatever your goal is!

    • Emmy Sea

      Modern studies and research even discovered that the _''It's about the journey, not destination''_ is truer than ever - we've discovered we get a bigger and greater dopamine _(hormone related to reward, satisfaction, pleasure)_ rush when we work _towards_ our goals rather than when we meet them!

    Hanging out this weekend was one of the best times I've had in a long time! Thanks for letting me tag along on this Poke-venture!
    I'll keep my fingers crossed that at least one of us wins the lottery XD
    (PS: I was geeking out at the quality of the camera, I really need to pick me up one of those, much better than lugging my huge camera around!)
    PSS: Yes, those strawberries were amazing!

      May I ask what camera you were using? I just graduated from video production courses, and I'm looking at my options. 🙂

    • holly slager

      I love your pictures. I think your eye as a photographer might have helped in being able to spot all the manholes

    After watching this video, Chris Broad has gone up exponentially in my esteem. What a good and loyal friend he is to agree to drive Sharla around the Japanese countryside for an entire day so that she can collect photos of Pokemon manhole covers. I smell a kind and decent human being.

    • Susan Ray
      Susan Ray 3 months ago

      @Rob Koper 😄 True that.

    • Rob Koper
      Rob Koper 3 months ago +5

      @Susan Ray In his defense, how could you refuse?
      Sharla is so dang cute and likeable that if she asked, we'd all probably carry her on foot to collect her stamps.

    • Alaosis

    The dad energy from Chris at the end when he said no problem at all, likes he's driving his children around to see Pokémon attractions 😅

    i love the idea these Pokelids. Getting people to places they may not have been before. Cool concept

    • Pokemon LID Adventures
      Pokemon LID Adventures 3 months ago

      the concept it nutty awesome! I have seen so many new locations because of it! :)

    • GreenTeaRex
      GreenTeaRex 4 months ago +1

      @Mora I know the concept isn’t new but I think collecting Pokémon stuff is super cool and only in Japan. And these aren’t only hiking trails which make it more unique. You actually gotta go to different areas in the prefecture and see different beautiful sceneries.

    • Mora
      Mora 4 months ago +7

      @GreenTeaRex In Hungary we have a hiking trail (Blue trail) going thorugh the whole country where you collect stamps as you hike through. No pokemons, but you can spend years collecting the stamps in your booklet :)

    Chris was "so excited", I bet he is going to replace the manhole in his studio with a Pokemon one 🤣

    • rapthor666
      rapthor666 4 months ago +3

      With Meowth so he can call it Mewtwo?

    • Rolsy
      Rolsy 4 months ago +26

      Sharla should secretly replace it when he’s not there 😅

  • Joni

    You know a road trip is great when it involves pokemon manhole cover hunting

  • TacComControl
    TacComControl 3 months ago +8

    Real talk, I genuinely like the chemistry that Shar and Chris have, where Chris is spending a little less time being an angry miserable British person, and spending more time being that silly Dad type doing things that make Sharla shake her head and roll her eyes. XD. Shar brings out Chris's Funny, and Chris brings out Shar's Sass.

  • Kammy Marie
    Kammy Marie 4 months ago +13

    I bet Chris never imagined when he got his car that he’d be driving around to random places to look at manholes 🤣 I’ve been loving this adventure! It’s too bad you can’t get all of them!

  • Heather Cook
    Heather Cook 4 months ago +73

    Yay! You went to Marumori. The town has a legend about cats and there's lots of cat-themed things there so it's why they have Meowth on their manhole cover.

    • Pokemon LID Adventures
      Pokemon LID Adventures 3 months ago +1

      that lid is so awesome! also so cool how each lid is represented by pokemon or items on their that showcase the city you are in.

    • Sharmeleon

      Oooo I’ll have to look into that! 😍

  • 로미Romy

    Taking pictures of the manhole covers in Japan is one of my favorite hobbies. So cool that they have this going on! My students think I'm a little strange for photographing them haha. Nice to see I'm not the only one.

    so instead of giving us a new video chris is driving around doing this?well, good for him he works hard and there is nothing quite like the feeling of spending time with friends :)

    • Susan Ray
      Susan Ray 4 months ago +11

      @Sharmeleon But he works himself to death so it was nice to see him getting to relax and get calm. Your viewers may not know you in person, but we feel that you are our friends and we care about you.

    • Sharmeleon

    Wait, Chris didn't shout "Subscribe to Abroad in Japan" at the end! 😱😂
    Your videos are always so relaxing, I just love joining your little adventures, especially when my anxiety comes up your videos really help me to calm down. So thank you so much for your awesome content, Sharla! 💖🌸🙌

    • XSemperIdem5

    What a nice thing for Chris to do, driving you guys to these places even though he’s not really into Pokémon. What a good friend, though he does like driving and exploring so it is a win for him also most likely.
    Either way this was a fun video.

  • wwaxwork
    wwaxwork 4 months ago +15

    I actually... really liked Chris in this video because it shows such a... normal, non scripted side to just living and hanging out. Also that cat with the big round eyes is called Espurr, it evolves into two different cats depending on its gender!

    Chris looks so bored 😂 I'd be the most excited person on Earth, I love when Pokémon meets real life things instead of just games

    This video was full of good vibes and I'm all for it. It's so fun that they did a little scavenger hunt for pokemon manholes and you geeking out about it is a whole mood. ~

    I really like how remote some of the locations are for the stamp rally. It introduces you to places you've never seen! It reminds me of the stamp rally episode in Yuru Camp where they go around to locations in Yamanashi Prefecture. Also, the manhole cover designs are so cute!
    I hope you make it and find all of them!

    I am from Canada, and not going to lie, I feel like I haven't experienced life in other places. Almost feels like I know you guys personally, following all your guys' accounts... Japan is the one place I must visit sometime when I get the chance.

    I commented last time saying I manhole hunt'd in Kagawa! I just finished a round in Miyazaki. It's interesting seeing your video of the Miyagi ones because so far the Kagawa and Miyazaki ones I've been to are all more aimed towards kids (family friendly places) - a lot of them are located in playgrounds & seaside parks, instead of tourist places. Interesting to see the variation in locations & stuff.
    Notice that you had some trouble with the exact locations - The website has the exact GPS google maps coordinates. They're all extremely accurate if you phone cooperates lol. Not sure if you know, just wanted to point it out :)

      England only the mountains are higher and the food is usually better… that’s the impression I’m getting of Japan. Except I know almost no Japanese.

    Hi Sharla, Hi Victor, Hi Chris. That was so cool. Can’t wait until you go back in the Spring. It should be quite the adventure.

    Thanks for taking us along Sharla! There's something hauntingly beautiful about the shrines and castle in the winter light with the snow all around, I feel like it's a side of Japan I don't see very often. 😌

    I love Chris's commentary. Makes me chuckle since he doesn't know to many Pokemon. Love seeing the snow on the mountains.

    I love this series so much already, it seems so fun. After watching your first video about the lids, I checked it out online and some of the prefectures have also produced special collaboration products with items made within that area. There are lots for Yadon/Slowpoke and I also saw lots of cool things with Vulpix. It was mostly food items, but they were all so cute. Looking forward to seeing more vids like this.

    So happy to see a new upload from you :).
    I've recently been watching a lot of your videos and I'm really enjoying how peaceful they are and how you show a lot of more simple things about Japanese culture and your local area.
    I hope you have a great day!
