Riding the Underwater Bullet Train to Hokkaido JAPAN

Patreon -
T-Shirts -

With only a week or so left in my Japan trip, I set out to finally make the trip to the northern island of Hokkaido. In all of the times I have been to Japan, I never actually made it out there. So, I decided to go all the way to the northernmost tip of the country using my JR Rail Pass.

First up, I left Saitama and headed to Omiya Station, where I would take the Hayabusa train on the Tohoku Hokkaido Shinkansen bullet train to the first Japanese city opened to trade called Hakodate. But first I had to take the train, which passed through Morioka, the city where I did a homestay in high school. Then, the train went through the Seikan Tunnel, which is a 20 plus mile tunnel that goes under the Tsugaru Strait.

Upon arriving in Shin Hakodate Hokuto Station, I took another train to Hakodate Station, where I could get off and walk to Mt. Hakodate, a small mountain that has a ropeway up where you can see an amazing view of the city. The city was covered in snow and was like a whole different season compared to Tokyo, it actually felt like winter.

I walked through the city and eventually made my way onto the ropeway...

Continuing my journey to the northernmost point of Japan, I headed up the ropeway to Mt. Hakodate. It was a short ride up, and it was freezing cold. From the top, I could see Hakodate Bay and the city of Hakodate sprawled out. I could also see the main island of Japan, Honshu in the distance and could get a visceral sense of how far underwater we traveled in the bullet train under the Tsugaru Strait.

I ended up not staying for the night view, even though it was supposed to be amazing because I was tired and cold, and still had to make it to the train to get to Sapporo by nighttime, where my hostel was located. So I headed down and explored the city.

There was a district filled with old churches, and I saw lots of them, it was very interesting. I also learned that Hakodate was the first city opened to trade in Japan after admiral Perry arrived in the country.

Afterwards, I walked back to Hakodate Station where I took another train to Shin Hakodate Hokuto Station, and then finally took a train 3 hours north to Sapporo, where I would be staying for the night.

10. Anantara Kihavah Villas Maldives

Japan to build cities in the ocean

A metropolitan city can hardly be called a good place to live in. Perhaps, every resident of megacities dreams of living out of town -- somewhere in the midst of green forests, by the seaside or at least by the river. This remains a dream for many. Slowly but surely, it becomes a part of reality for others.
Everyone is aware of the problem of the shortage of land in Japan. It is quite possible that soon the Japanese will have to build new cities on the water surface and even up in the sky. This is how the dream can come true.
Not that long ago, a Japanese company put forward a project of a floating artificial city -- a giant floating island that can become a home for at least 100,000 people. The city of the future will look like a colony of giant water lilies.
There is another project about the construction of new cities in the sky. The designers can already give the dates. The new module-like cities will create a whole neighborhood in the Pacific Ocean by 2025. The residents of the city will mostly live in skyscrapers placed in the center of water lilies. The towers will be surrounded by artificially created fields and forests. Additional residential areas with prestigious mansions will be built on the shores of the artificial islands. The climate on the floating islands is promised to be good and pleasant. The modules will be drifting in the Pacific Ocean along the equator, so the average temperatures will make up 26-28 degrees above zero. Agriculture will be developing and prospering, the costs on electricity will not be that large.
This seems to be like science fiction, but the fiction may soon come true. Would you agree to live in a floating city like that?

12 Most Fascinating Man-Made Islands

From Tokyo's Disneyland an incredible tourist attraction to the man-made islands w/ beautiful beaches & resorts perfect to visit

Subscribe to American Eye

6. Ile Aux Cygnes
This smalls artificial island is located on the River Seine in Paris and was created in 1827 in order to protect the port of Grenelle. Ile aux cygnes translates to the Island of Swans. It’s uninhabited for the most part except for this replica of Lady Liberty that stands about 70 feet tall, facing the direction of her much larger sister in New York City. It was originally facing the direction of the Eiffel Tower but ...

5. Nanhai Pearl Island
This artificial island located off the coast of Holiday beach in China is currently under construction and will be an enormous tourist attraction with hotels, shipyard, cruiseships and a theme park. It currently has one bridge that connects it to the mainland of Hainan China. China has become notorious lately with their construction of artificial islands. They caused some controversy when they began constructing many islands and then militarizing them and turning them into airbase fortresses of the China Sea, which we’ll get into more later. But this one here is supposed to be for touristic purposes. Construction began in April 2016 and consists of a round, crescent shaped body, and somewhat seems like a response to Dubai’s artificial islands.

4. Islands of Uros
The Uros people of Peru live very simple lives on floating artificial islands. These islands are actually made of reeds that grow on the edges of Lake Titicaca. These reeds are harvested, bundled tightly and small settlements are built on top of them.The Uros are very mysterious people and legend has it that they have black blood and have seemingly magical tolerance to cold weather. The purpose of the island settlements were originally for defensive purposes and if they came into threats from invading tribes they could simply move their homes on this islands. Each island houses anywhere from 2-10 families depending on the size. Local residents enjoy a variety of different resources that Lake titicaca provides which include, a large variety of fish, birds such as flamingos and even graze cattle on their islands. Simply fascinating.

3. Palm Jumeirah
How would you feel about living on an extremely large man made island in the Persian Gulf? Sounds like it could be intriguing. These also belong to the flamboyant United Arab Emirates. But instead of taking the shape of the world, these cluster of islands are shaped like a palm tree and are much utilized than it’s neighboring chain of islands. The palm tree consists of a trunk that acts like a bridge to the mainland with 16 fronds and a surrounding crescent shaped island. This is the home the to luxurious Palm Atlantis Hotel which began construction in 2001. This adds an extra 40 miles to Dubai’s coastline and was built with over 7 million tons of stone. They kept the nearby ecosystem in mind and used natural rock to encourage natural reef creation by the sea life.

2. Thilafushi Maldives
The Maldives are known for being an excellent resort country in the middle of the indian ocean. Its beautiful beaches are flocked to by millions of tourists each year. One of its least popular islands, however, isn’t really natural. The thilafushi island is built on top of reclaimed coral reefs in 1992 not to house a 5 star resort, but to house the garbage left by tourists and locals alike. It was built as a landfill and given the nickname garbage island. In 2005, it’s estimated that 31000 truckloads of garbage were transported to this island each year and it continues to grow each year at the rate of 365,000 square feet a day! The BBC even described the waste on the island was apocalyptic.

1.Chinese War Islands
In recent years, it’s been China’s goal to beef up their military presence especially in the South China Sea where these islands are located. Their building islands here on international waters at an exponential rate at there seems to be no end in sight. The US navy and rival Asian counterparts dispute these practices as being aggressive and unnecessary. This is part of their plan to build dominance as a commercial and military power and no one wants to tell them to stop. This guarantees that tension in this area will continue to rise especially as Vietnam, Australia and the Philippines don’t appreciate this one bit. Just because it’s called the China Sea, doesn’t make it theirs! It’s a crucial trade route with more than 5 trillion dollars worth of international shipping each year, in which China has no historical ties with. If something isn’t done about these islands soon, it could very well lead to world war 3.

Palm Jumeirah - The world's largest man made island

The Palm Jumeirah is an artificial archipelago in the United Arab Emirates, created using land reclamation by Nakheel which extends into the Persian Gulf. It is part of a larger series of developments called the Palm Islands, including Palm Jebel Ali and Palm Deira, which, when completed, will together increase Dubai's shoreline by a total of 520 kilometres.

Construction of the Palm Jumeirah island began in June 2001 and the developers announced handover of the first residential units in 2006.

In early October 2007, the Palm Jumeirah had already become the world's largest artificial island. Also at this time, 75% of the properties were ready to hand over, with 500 families already residing on the island. By the end of 2009, 28 hotels were opened on the Crescent.

The complexities of the construction were blamed, in part, for the extended delays to the completion of the project, the date of which was pushed back multiple times and was nearly two years late.

Qatar's $500BN Transformation | 2030 Future MegaProjects & FIFA World Cup

Qatar is investing over $300 billion in infrastructure megaprojects across the country before the 2022 FIFA World Cup. A few of the projects, however, will not be finished until after the World Cup due to troubles from the Qatari government at securing loans.
The megaprojects examined in this video are the following: Lusail City development including the Katara Hotel, the Amphibious 1000 Resort, the Silver Pearl Hotel, the Doha Metro, Hamad International Airport, and New Port Project.

Amphibious 1000 is a 500 million dollar project by Giancarlo Zema Design Group (GZDG) for the construction of a semi-submerged island in the protected area off the coast of Qatar. At the futuristic resort, you can stay at one of 80 Jelly-Fish floating suites. The suites can accommodate up to six people comfortably, with 5 floors connected by a spiral staircase. On the lower level, 3 meters below sea level, you can enjoy a submersed panoramic room, overlooking the sea.
The resort features 20-meter yachts, equipped with hydrogen engine sand underwater viewing globes. The lowest level, at 3.00meters (9.8 ft) below sea level, guests can enjoy their very own private aquarium lounge.

The Silver Pearl Hotel A deluxe hotel resembling two half moons on the horizon will be built a mile off the coast of Doha in Qatar at a cost of just over £1billion.
The Silver Pearl Hotel, designed by New York-based firm M. Castedo Architects, is set to have more than 1000 rooms and an adjoining expo center, has been scheduled for completion ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. But most stunning will be its stainless steel and glass exterior, which will reflect in the ocean to sparkle like a pearl at night.

Hamad International Airport's renovation involves the expansion of Hamad international airport passenger terminal located at Doha, Qatar. The project includes annual capacity from 24 million to 53 million passengers per year. Meinhardt is providing engineering design services for 3-storey terminal building expansion, concourse D&E, expansion of baggage handling, terminal metro station, substructure for future connection to satellite terminal, underground services tunnel, and utilities.

The Doha Metro is a rapid transit system currently under construction in Doha, Qatar's capital city, that is scheduled to become operational by the end of 2018. It will have four lines with an approximate overall length of 300 km and 100 stations. It will be an integral component of the larger Qatar Rail network, which will include a long-distance rail for passengers and freight, linking Qatar to the GCC, and the Lusail LRT. Capable of reaching 100km/h, the Doha Metro will be one of the fastest driverless trains in the world.

I do not own ANY of the footage used in the video.
