The young man was touring the island on an electric bike. In a second video, he speaks about the hawk stealing his food.

The young man decided to try eating at the beach again. For the second time during his travels, he lost his sandwich to a bird. Describing the second incident and elaborating on the first, he offers viewers some advice: “Don’t eat on Japanese beaches.” The young man described the birds that stole his sandwiches as “aggressive.”

While visiting Japan, his goal was to see all the beaches. Touring on an electric bike gave him an opportunity to soak in the scenery. He could easily access beaches. His only regret is trying to eat on the beach. After losing two sandwiches to aggressive birds, he changed his preferences to eating in a more covered location. He still had the opportunity to enjoy some amazing scenery. Some images of the beautiful scenery he saw on his travels.
