Welcome to the first J-Vlog update in this Japan trip for 2016! In this first update, it kicks off with us waiting for our flight to Japan at Melbourne Airport, some in-flight footage, landing at Narita and then some walking around our neighbourhood of Asakusa in search of some food and sweets! This one was a rush job as we’re completely tired from the flight but we hope you enjoy. And if you like what you see, please subscribe to the Japandaman YouTube channel to stay up to date.

They both look equally amazing and enticing so I guess the most important question is which are you? #TeamCaptainAmerica or #TeamIronMan
