I was in Otsu today and went around the places that inspired the Chuunibyou setting, so I thought I'd share the few pictures I took there.

First one is the Keihanishiyama station.

I think his 1k USD estimate is a bit high too, unless you are taking accommodation into that.

Food and transportation are really cheap, though it comes down to how much you eat in the end.

If you are trying to plan your first trip it would be better to over estimate your daily costs though, and of course having money left over isn't a bad thing.

>>109337175
>Do you know Japanese?
Some. There was a sign I only saw in Japanese at Tokyo Station saying to take a train to Kanda to get onto the Chuo/Sobu line because of works or something. Being able to decipher that saved some time.

No, with a friend.
>Was it fun?
Yes.
>Did any cuties call you a baka gaijin?
No, some did invite us to drink with them in a park, we had other plans though.
>If you know nippon, could other nips understand it?
I certainly understand more than I can speak, making sentences is hard.

Above basically. I could quite easily get around on about 50USD per day but it will vary from person to person, depending on your plans, diet, etc

From the experience of my one trip to Japan you don't even need to go to Hokkaido to get away from English speaking tourists. If you just don't go to places in guide books you'll be fine.

When my friend and I were walking to Kinkakuji in Kyoto we saw all these sakura in bloom above a walled complex about 10 minutes walk away from Kinkakuji. On the way back we stopped by to check it out and they were setting up for a festival of sorts, there was a shrine within the grounds too and there were a lot of people there. All these blooming sakura, all the tourist buses would have been driving past on the way to Kinkakuji and we didn't see a single non-Asian face in there, it was madness. And I had taiyaki.

>>109339324
I'd say so, I want to go up again. There are really great views and it's only 2000yen to go up, and another 1000yen to go to the second deck.

For the most part there was no problem with height.

Now width, there were a few stores I went into that had quite narrow isles that could have been a problem for anyone with considerable girth, or a large backpack, or trying to get past someone in the isle.

>>109339908
>No, but you could hear people talking about you, trying to figure out where you were from. Some people were incredibly friendly though.
Reminds me, when I was in Akihabara some random Japanese guy heard my friend and I talking and asked where we were from (in English), when I said New Zealand he proceeded to say every English word he knew that related to New Zealand, it was quite amusing.

Probably saw the most Westerners there. Fuck, I loved that place though.

Had one guy jumping over puddles on the way to the big Torii at Miyajima in a really anime way, arms out to the side, talking to himself etc. When he looked at us, I clapped and he gave me a thumbs up and said what was probably the only English word he knew, "Good!"

>>
>>109340281
Thanks for the places to avoid. I definitely don't want to see foreigners when I'm in a foreign country.
>>
>>109340245
I imagine they love it. I'm from Australia and everyone that asked was delighted when we told them.
>>
>>109339908
>Offering assistance even when you didn't request it
It reminds here me when a japanese family asked me for directions and I ended up helping them for a couple of hours. I swear to god their daughter was the embodiment of tsundere
>>
>>109339817

I was surprised too to be honnest, i thought the ywould be like 5cm average shorter.

The thing that did surprised me is that every damn elder is realy short; it looks like they shrink when they age and loose 20cm.

I also saw a lot of old people with realy bad posture, hunchbacked people and everything...
>>

Do elaborate.
>>
>>109340416
>I ended up helping them for a couple of hours
In what way? I can't imagine giving directions would take that long.
>>
>>109340449
I second this
>>
>>109340227
How nice. I separated with my friends for a few days when I went on a trip with them to Tokyo and they saw all sorts of crazy stuff while I just wandered around the ordinary streets. I never seem to attract the kind of weirdos that people always tell stories of when they go on a holiday.
>>
>>109340416
Did you plant a flag?
>>
>>109340320
I suck at giving estimates like that, but I can tell you it's not that hard to find a 6' tall young male.
>>
>>109340032
6'2'', not freak tall but way over the standard for my country.
>>
>>109340416
>I swear to god their daughter was the embodiment of tsundere
So did she punch you fifty feet into the air through a wall or what?
>>
>>109340357

Just stop to some random train station between two big/average towns and have a walk in the neighborhood.

Did this a few times while in Japan and it was realy good.

But if you want to avoid foreigners at all cost you'll miss things, like beautiful(and popular) temples or gardens.

You gotta see a little of everything.

It's like these people wo say "i only want to go to the countryside in Japan", it's nonsense, Japan is urban by definiton: you gotta see a little of everything.
>>
Would someone that's ~5'10-11" fit in fine then?
>>
>>109339099
Best time to go to Hokkaido in my opinion is winter due to all the great snowboarding locations and the ice festival.
>>
>>109340557
I've been and I agree with you, the cities are awesome. I only ever encountered foreigners in the hostel I was staying in and occasionally at the very large tourist attractions. Most other places were just about 100% Japanese.
>>
>>109340504
Is it somewhere in Asia? It seems like that's the only area of the world that operates under a different scale.
>>
>>109340357
In the cities, the population is dense enough that foreigner presence gets drowned out by the sheer volume of people.

Outside of the cities, you won't likely see other foreigners save at obvious tourist spots like Hakone.
>>
>>109340577
Do you look Asian? If you don't you won't fit in regardless so why bother.
>>
>>109340460
Not only directions, but also pointing better ways to go, good sightseeing places and traditional restaurants. The old parts of my city are kinda labyrinthic.

Well, her way of acting kinda resembled of being tsun tsun. Sometimes I'd notice her looking at me intensely and when I'd turn to her she'd quickly turn her face away.

I don't like to blog guys.

The standard is 5' 8", I don't know how inches work but in centimetres it's still quite a difference.

I meant height wise, obviously.

Would you guys recommend travelling Japan all alone?

Would like to take a vacation for two or three weeks just riding trains through the country, stopping at random stations, visiting the local sights, eating local food and checking in at random hotels for the nights.
>>
>>109340893
It's like 6" of difference. I could see that being problematic.
>>
I love these threads, thanks OP.
>>
>>109341033
I have been wondering this for awhile. IMO you'd have to be prepared as fuck.
>>
>>109341033
Only if you're used to it.
The first time I made that kind of stuff I must say it was a big impact for me. It wasn't even that far from my homeland.
>>
>>109341161
I don't speak Japanese and imagine it would be pretty fun lost in translation.
>>
>>109341033
I once thought about doing that in Germany but then I gave up.
>>
>>109341238
I've read in a guidebook (written by a Japanese) that sometimes sign language and saying "onegai shimasu" can be helpful.
>>
>>109341281
>Gave up
Don't give up from your wildest dreams anon!
>>
>>109341238
I think it'd be alright. A friend of mine did just that back in high school armed with zero Japanese language ability and just a phrasebook.

Was pretty fun, according to him.
>>
>>109341281
Why did you gave up?

I'm from germany myself and the country is extremly high populated. You can't get lost in the woods or stuff like that. Worst thing that could happen is your train arriving 2 minutes too late.
>>
>>109341378
>Worst thing that could happen is your train arriving 2 minutes too late.
I assume there's an official investigation if something that grave happened.
>>
>>109341378
Money and time. I'll eventually do it anon, don't worry!
Also, does everybody there speak english?
>>
>>109341447
>Also, does everybody there speak english?

Most people under 30 understand it at least and quite a few speak it well.
>>
>>109341433
>a german train arriving 2 minutes late

Hah, only if you're lucky. Everything in Germany is punctual EXCEPT for the trains. It's like a venting spot for laziness
>>
>>109341447
>Money and time. I'll eventually do it
Daily reminder I have a life dream of taking a biketrip all the way from europe to asia and then US
Don't give up!
>>
>>109341513
That's not a problem for me since I usually have to wait around 20 minutes for a fucking bus everyday in my city to go to college, bus drivers here a bunch of assholes. They get paid like shit though, so it's understandable.
>>
>>109341513
They should grab some train simulator pros to get that shit up to speed.

I knew a guy who did that with his girlfriend.
Had dreadlocks all the way to his feet. He travelled from India all the way to Malaysia to my house, then when he was on the way to China he was involved in an accident and died. His girlfriend survived though. That was 10 years ago and I still have feels regarding it as he was a great guy

Glorious DB commuter masterrace reporting in.
Every fucking year at the beginning of december I have 2-3 days off because my train won't arrive because WHO WOULDVE THOUGHT IT MIGHT ACTUALLY, YOU KNOW, SNOW IN DECEMBER.

On the plus side, I've become less strict about being on time overall.

Well its kinda obvious that trying to sign whatever you want and saying please will help

Did she blush and have little drops that went "dew dew" come out of her cheeks?

Actually germans just really like to complain about their trains, if you go to other countries their train and bus system will be way worse the occasional 5-10 minutes of german trains is nothing compared to it

She might have just been curious to see a gaijin

Why does 2D always look better? Why is Japan so shit in real life?

>>109339099
I want to visit Hokkaido too, mainly because of the Digimon, which marked my childhood.
>>
>>109343099
>Why does 2D always look better?
It's an idealized portrayal of real life with its major flaws removed unless they're related to the plot in some way (and therefore get resolved by the end).

Attracting hordes of gaijin and otaku who lech over 2D girls - was that really a good trade off?

I agree with that anon. I rarely get those kind of clouds here. Then again, I rarely go outside so that may be part of the problem.

No, that's the whole fucking problem. Go out more and you'll even find some nice places close to you.

Not him or trying to be a dick, but I have never seen that used before, and had to look it up. I'm willing to bet I've lurked online more than most people here, as well.

How is Ikebukuro? The area that Durra is set at?
>>
>>109352848
Ikebukuro is pretty cool, it's less busy than Shinjuku and Shibuya but there's plenty going on.

I stayed in the suburbs near Ikebukuro where the streets are really narrow, it's very laid back and calm.

I've been to Otsu, I found it pretty unremarkable other than Lake Biwa.

Wear a change of clothes and load up in Uniqlo.

You would do yourself no favors by wearing that.

Thanks for sharing OP.

I always thought it was weird how closely anime follows IRL. I always assumed it'd be easier to make up a setting that's easier to draw, but I supposed BG artists are good enough that that doesn't matter.

I remember someone posting in a Free! thread a translation of the areas around Haru and Makoto's house, and how there was a third house that wasn't to be mistaken for Makoto's house. Maybe drawing from IRL directly means less mistakes like this will happen.
>>
>>109360280
"drawing from IRL directly" is called tracing
>>
>>109360441
I thought tracing was called tracing.
I meant taking photos and using them as reference, as opposed to studying photos and coming up with a new environment.

Fake.

just say it's for an architecture project where you're supposed to design a park or a playground.

>>
>>109338431
Guys... Guys what if... Guys what if they made VR glasses or even just a phone app that plays scenes/puts characters in the actual locations when you visit them?
For other anime as well.
Would be autistically cool.
