iCarly: iGo to Japan, also named Konnichiwa Carly in Canada, is a 2008 Nickelodeon film that premiered on November 8, 2008 on Nickelodeon. The TV movie stars Miranda Cosgrove, Jennette McCurdy, Nathan Kress, and Jerry Trainor. This is the very first iCarly movie, and runs 90 minutes long though it is also considered a feature-length episode.


The team, along with Spencer and Mrs. Benson, go to Japan when iCarly is nominated for the iWeb Awards. They ride an unsanitary, dangerous freighter bound for Korea and skydive from the airplane so they arrive in Japan. They then find the hotel where the iWeb Awards made their reservations. While everyone is resting up from the plane ride, Kyoko and Yuki, the stars of a competing webshow, visit them. Kyoko and Yuki give Spencer and Mrs. Benson free passes to a spa, and take the kids shopping.

As generous as their gestures seem, Kyoko and Yuki have their minds set on sabotaging iCarly's chances of winning the iWeb Awards. They take Carly, Sam and Freddie to the middle of nowhere and drive off, while Spencer and Mrs. Benson are trapped in seaweed. Spencer accidentally exposes his nudity to Mrs. Benson to show he's special then has to get a towel to cover it up and tells her not to look and she does the same.

Although they are eventually able to overcome their situations and get to the iWeb Awards, they can't get in because the security guards don't speak English. Mrs. Benson distracts the guards and they get in, until the security guards find them again. The guards keep them in a room, and Carly and Sam try to communicate with them. They act out what happened to them during their trip, and Freddie videotapes them, plugging his camcorder into the iWeb Award screen. They win the award for best comedy, Kyoko and Yuki are arrested for kidnapping, and Carly, Sam, Freddie, Spencer, and Mrs. Benson return to America on what appears to be a fishing boat.Sam Been To Be Starving Cause She Didn't eat since yesterday of the trip (Fat Cakes Was actually a dessert) But Spencer bring the bag of whole candy.But, it Turns out it the soap from the hotel that he been packing.
