>have a good sum of money
>think about taking the trip to japan I always dreamed of
>get scared thinking about how money exchange works, what places would be gaijin friendly, how to check in and out of a hotel, customs, making connecting flights, etc.
>give up the idea
and money exchange is fucking easy you retard
just go to a bank and exchange it for jap yen
but i wouldn't bother because japan wont be friendly they will be hostile towards you regardless of your skin color age even if your a stinky gook they will hate you for not being jap
don't bother save your money for a house or some bullshit don't fall for the japan is friendly safe or Japanese is easy
i've got similar problems
>be massive weeb
>want to plan perfect trip to japan to induldge my weebness
>want to make it like an anime by doing things like karaoke, camping, hotsprings etc, etc
>no friends to go with
>scared to go on my own because i'd be far away from home and don't speak the language
>give up idea completely
yeah sure, i'll just go to another country all by myself and be too shy to interact with locals and feel intimidated and isolated and spend 90% of the time hiding in my hotel room
Why don't you two weakling fucks go together?
And ill go with you, poorfag weeb here
You go to your bank and ask them to exchange it into yen....
Or you do it at a Bank in Japan, im sure a banker speaks english.
Im sure an atm will also convert the currency from your account and spit out yen if you access one in japan, for a fee tho most likely.
All correct except for the atm thing. I found that, despite having convenience stores everywhere, only one third of them would accept my Mastercard cash passport. Only the 7-11s did, Family Mart and Lawson's didn't.
Also, I left over $100 of yen in my wallet in a hotel lobby in Tokyo when I left in the morning, came back at 9pm that night and it was still there waiting for me. It was even propped up against a vase with a note, so someone definitely saw it and made a conscience decision not to take it.
>tl;dr don't fall for the "don't fall for the Japan is nice meme" meme
It really is nice. They might be xenophobic, but they never show it. Always polite, great customer service, etc. They'll even offer you assistance if you look like a lost tourist.
Despite what I've said, still get some sort of international bank card to keep your money safe. Not everyone in Japan is Japanese.
Don't go with the expectation of anyone giving a flying fuck that you're there.
If you want to get laid, look up people on expat forums on where to go. I've heard that if you're white AND you've got money, they're all over you (in certain places, not necessarily brothels).
Book the flights as "YOUR CITY to DESTINATION", then the connecting flights are the operating companies' responsibility. Money exchange.. please. You can probably use plastic everywhere you go, but as someone said, there are banks.
Checking in and out goes like this
>I'd like to check in..
>*hand over id*
>sign some papers
>have credit card checked/swiped
>get handed two keycards to your room
>bellboy takes your luggage and asks you to follow him to your room
Checking out is basically the same shit, except you'll be giving the keys away and the bellboy might or might not be there (depending on how fancy your hotel is).
Customs and all that shit just "follow this line, get xray'd and asked a bunch of random questions, move along".
Fukken do it, bro.
is /a/ the biggest pile of festering human filth on this website?
Said it earlier i'll say it again because somehow this thread is still alive
Japan is NOT foreigner friendly
Regardless if your a nigger white Indian whatever you call yourself
They will be hostile
And will treat you like utter dog shit
Japan is a meme fucking country
That's a given anywhere you go.
And no it won't be fine
they have a very long history of being xenophobic
which is evident today
ton of other shit on net
All the racism is passive.
I'm nisei, but went back and it's like they are extremely nice to my white coworkers in their face, but as soon as they leave they talk mad shit behind their back.
Just realize this is the racism that minorities have to deal with everday in the us.
Mfw whitey calls racism because people don't like him because of his skin color
No your right it's infested with em
every last fuckin one of them
They demand help because of china
yet refuse to contribute or be a part of the international community IE take refugee scum
fuckin yellow knight cunts
