I have questions.
- How do you manage your trash in there ? there's no trashcan right, should I bring it to hotel ?
- Whats the best way to get temporary internet service for your phone ?
- Should I bother with prepaid train ticket or it's more effective to just buy it normally ?
The average Japanese woman weights 52.3kg (115lbs). A girl will of course weigh less.
Even without being in particularly good shape, you should be able to pick up and carry that much weight for a short distance.
I'm actually going to Japan in May, so yeah I'll be in Akihabara for part of a day
I'd assume the same way you pick up girls wherever you live.
Hahaha, you think any decent, Japanese girl/women with a shred of dignity would fuck some retarded foreigner? Nah, all you get is used up sluts who want to fuck exotic foreigner, so might as well get one easily and pay for her.
Straight from /trv/'s sticky.
I'm sorry, man.
Fucking hate faggots like this. Have you ever fucked a normal Southeast Asian woman before? Jacking yourself off feels 5 times better than fucking one of them. They just lay there like a dead fish while you fuck away, they have the sexual skill of a potato. Hookers are the way to go, they're professionals. Plus, all pussy feels the same.
been there 2 years ago
1- none outside, but inside most place have them
2- ask your company for the japan partner (or oversea promotions) or simple go to internet café and use their wifi
3- buy it normally
if you stay in tokyo, just use the trains
if you want to go to any major city without paying a lot, use intercity bus
I am bad at this.
There is one main street, very bright and were most of the main stores are.
Then there is a parallel one, with more shady stores and second-hand shops, also full of maids/schoolgirls promoting their shops. You shouldn't pay much attention to them, they are like predators looking for their prey.
There is Love Live shit literally everywhere.
Despite the relatively small size of it you can go days without checking all the shops.
It's mostly Otaku heaven nowadays, but you can see some of the old Akihabara between the alleys and in not so easily visible shops.
Lot of old people selling electronic appliances, PC parts, and so on.
That has literally nothing to do with Akihabara but I will bite.
There are trashcans, usually near dispenser machines.
If you have a SIM free phone, you can buy SIM cards that provide you with a few GB and you can recharge them with your credit card if they run out. You can also rent a phone in Japan but it isn't as cheap, look it out.
No idea of what you are talking about here, the JR Pass?
I don't check much of that. Pretty sure the Don Quixote here has an entire section dedicated to Tenga.
Maid's cafes are hit or miss depending on the girls attending.
They are more enjoyable with friends and if your knowledge of Japanese is above average.
Always good to watch the girls in cute uniforms and their futomomo, though.
Stayed at Asakusabashi which is 1 station away from Akiba last January.
Akiba was the comfiest place I've ever been to.
アトレ was Code Geass themed last month.
At the moment it's Dimension W I believe.
Akihabara is a fantastic place. There is always something to do.
I guess it's unsurprising but I spend most of my time in Japan lurking it's streets.
Sort of related but not limited to Akiba, I'm interested in
/v/ hardware, just want to know if PS4 controllers can be bought as made in Japan, since JP models might be made in China too.
Not akiba but /a/ wasn't lying about the power lines.
There's no way she won't find out. The moment you leave the station, it's anime everywhere. Mega sex shop right down the road and blaring Love Live! music from nearby shops. The buildings are covered top to bottom with anime ads.
Well its been 12 years since i was there so not sure if they still even have them but the Coffin tube hotels were fun if your not looking to spend much time in them other than to sleep.
I stayed at Asakusabashi 1 station over and the hotel was pretty fucking good, a Lawson and 7-11 right outside.
I commuted to Akiba by foot every single day I was there.
I just got up and wanted to boast about having went to Akiba with you people.
I also went on a SHINKANSEN.
Funny how it's plastered but fans making any real relevant non-H works don't seem to exist, plus characters and their traits seem neglected enough that some are abandoned and can't spread outside of direct fandom.
Not OP, but I went to a maid cafe in Akiba after getting shitfaced with a friend in Odaiba.
Went up the elevator to stop on the second floor, looked pretty normal. Was told we're going third instead. Dim place sort of place with strobe lights and music. The best part was that there was a group of 6 Japanese businessmen, aged between 22-60, all wearing animal ear headgear.
I couldn't really believe it when one of the guys started saying "nyaa" at the end of everything sentence for about 20 minutes.
My friend (who is sort of a closet otaku) turns to me and says "If these guys can have no shame in their love for anime and all things moe, then I won't either"
I always stay at Toyoko Inns in Japan because they're everywhere, they're cheap and basic (basically intended for businessmen) but you're not supposed to spend much time in your room anyway.
They are all rigged, you have to work out the count by watching others and then wait until the the right time and then use it.
Basically every crane machine has a set number of fails before it will succeed, if it is 20 then you wait until someone else failed at it 19 times and then you go up and try at the 20th time.
I think slot machines are similar.
You think people who like trains or something wouldn't make train noises or something whether or not they were in a group? It's the same shit, people who like anime don't have to be put in some mystical category.
I want to go here.
This. They are pretty made to look incredibly easy, but are impossible to do in just one try. Even if you know exactly what to do it takes several attempts to inch it off the hook or whatever it is.
Cranes and slot machines are also designed to be really addictive with flashing lights, noises and lots of other shit to keep your playing.
Slot machines are the biggest money makers in Vegas.
I think a lot of MMORPGs use the same mind games as those machines.
Akiba is nice, but just walking around and you're bound to encounter some magical places. Stumbled upon pic related just walking around, didn't even know where I was.
Stopped watching. Fucking murricans, holy shit.
This idiot aside, anyone know what it's actually like to date one of those OLs?
I saw snow for the very first time of my life at Yuzawa, even 10 C is freezing cold by my standard.
I mean I don't expect a street or the entire area to be disgusting like that but most shops, stores or whatever there catering towards Otaku, is it not like that? If it is then that's precisely why I wouldn't care for it.
hey man I just don't wanna look like a retard.
yeah my normalfag housemates all watch anime and we talk about it and stuff, but they don't know how much I watch, or what genres.
I really don't know, shes even the one that suggested it, I think we're both pretty excited to go for the food and the other culture stuff, but I sat her in front of a Gibli movie once and she said it was "stupid" and went to sleep so I'm kinda just assuming she doesn't like it, she thinks I watch Dragon-ball Z and Pokemon and doesn't know I watch moe SOL etc.
Man, I was there and it was REALLY cold. Like, I had gloves and even gloves weren't working with all the snow and wind. The ground was basically frozen, melted, then re-frozen, rince and repeat. You'd pay attention to your every step. Especially in the evening/night where you lose all the warmth.
Yeah, it caters to otaku but going into a store there is barely any different to going into any other store in Japan. It's mostly normal looking young people with friends, not spergs in Naruto headbands or anything embarrassing. Lots of gaijin too
I've only encountered 3 visibly autistic nips the whole week I was there. rest was pretty normal looking.
The lewd comics corner at night is filled with nothing but old salarymen, though.
my friends have walked in on me weebing too many times they have accurate depictions of what i watch and theres no shame in that, my drug dealer just looks at me like yo whats up with the watashi was
- Go to Game center, probably to play Kancolle Arcade.
- Go to animate, toranoana, etc.
- Go to sex toys shop ( any reccomendation ? )
- Theatre if there's anything good showing.
Anything else I should add ?
Kind of overrated, but if you spend enough time and get lucky you can have a good time and find some cool shit. And unless you're used to big cities Tokyo in general can feel really oppressive.
Kyoto is just better, and Teramachi's kind of like a little version of Akiba.
I'm just saying anon, where I'm from, we are used to dealing with blizzards, extreme cold and icy conditions. I really want to visit Hokkaido sometime.
I'll step into hell myself for a cute OL girlfriend
See, I am too jaded for this shit.
I saw four salaryman enter to a maid cafe and put on cat ears and order booze and I didn't even bat an eye.
I only remembered after reading >>138606390
And I was wearing bunny ears myself, so who I am to judge them?
Never played it, what's her deal?
Looks like a Toyoko Inn.
Petty comfy and reasonable price for a single room in Tokyo, but there are much better options.
Small hostels that mainly cater to Japanese travelers are always the best, in my opinion. $25-30/night usually very close to a train station, in-house meals are cheap and delicious, the owners are almost always cool as fuck and are fun to drink with and shooting the shit with them, and you generally don't have to deal with cringy fucking weeaboos and Australians. The only challenge is you need to speak a bare minimum of Japanese.
We were allowed a picture with one of the maids so we asked if we could take it with them too. Really nice and cool group of guys. Ran into some of them on the train on the way home too.
Shit dude I've had the exact same experience. Like a group of middle-aged business men wearing nekomimi and singing with the maids and saying nyaa and uguu randomly. Shit was so cash.
Sorry anon, but it goes both ways. In the summer here it gets humid as fuck and I sweat my balls off.
Yeah, it's cool and shit, but since I'm not a weeb I wasn't so impressed.
Depends how much money you want to spend on it. The Ritz-Carlton got recently renovated and it's up on the 45-50th floors so you have a great view over Tokyo.
Do you guys have a specific reason for going to Japan (family, work, military) or do you just freeball it and plan a vacation trip for yourself? I wish I had some friends I could go with.
Huh. Might play it one day for OL-chan then.
I'm still interested in whether any of you fucks have met an actual nip OL though, with their country's work mentality. >>138606914
All I can imagine is that most are depressed, childless women.
I'm going to Japan to actually see the country, not stay in a hotel all day. I'm literally only gonna be using it to sleep/store my bags, so why would I pay a lot extra to stay at a hotel? Also I feel like it would be cool to meet the airbnb hosts.
I go for family, but make time to go do the stuff I want.
Make some friends that are also interested in traveling. Japan has so much more to offer than just Akiba or like places. If the only reason you go to Japan is for that, you've wasted a trip.
Good thing I said humid and not hot, numbnuts. I've had Arabs here tell me they prefer the 70+ arid desert heat of Iraq to the sweat-inducing hell this place has been through.
In my experience, quite a bit. More than in Zurich/Vienna at least. The escorts 'officially' only do blowjobs so you have to pay them more to actually fuck them, be sure to check what they're willing to do before ordering (actual penetration is illegal as such)
Also try Soaplands, they're fun but not all let gaijin in.
I've blown like two thousand bucks on escorts at my last visit, so it can get pricey, but it's fun.
>tfw 5'6 gook manlet
I have no chance at all
I'm a gook too anon. 5' 7" manlet. I guess my dick isn't that small, but I get girls just fine. It's just your confidence. I bet you've never initiated a conversation with a girl to pick her up.
I'm going to be teaching in japan in the next year or so and I honestly don't know if I'll bother going. I think figures are a waste of money, I can't imagine paying for anime and I wouldn't want to buy a japanese game I couldn't understand.
Maybe I'll go just to browse or something.
Was military stationed in Tokyo at first, but went back a few times for vacation and work.
It can be a lot of fun to go alone if you can speak the language, plan ahead, and keep an adventurous spirit. I spent a summer backpacking Hiroshima, Tokushima and Wakayama. Was never bored because I would just go out and look for fun shit to do. Met a lot of cool people, hiked a lot of mountains, took a lot of pictures, and drank a lot of beer.
Not at all, mid-twenties mostly. Younger even, and younger still if you go to some club and get laid. Pretty sure one of them was like, barely 16. But it's hard to tell with them.
What I've found is that at first they're a little bit nervous around whites, the way normal people are around negroes, but then it turns into curiosity and/or excitement once they realize we're not gonna rape and/or kill them.
That reminds me, anyone have that edit of the girl sitting alone in the classroom, and two Tyrone's have very suggestive dialogue involving her?
Any advice for backpacking around a country? Where do I start in preparing?
I was there a few years ago. Honestly it caught me off guard, especially when it was recommended by my host. It was cool though, I liked it. Saw a life size Kenshiro (manlet) for like 50k yen.
Go with your friends. Plan ahead together, try to go with a Jap friend if possible, he might know where to go, eat, etc. In my case, having 3 friends alongside the trip, I had a shitton of fun. All weebs or chinese cartoon fanatics, it's fun and you can do alot of insane shit with your friends because you get that much confident too. Lost my virginity in Japan fyi. [/blog]
>with your friends
/a/ group trip to Japan when
How can you don't know?
>going to overpopulated nip cities
>not going to the most remote of towns, where the locals will label you as a threat because you are a filthy gaijin
i wanna spend most my time in a peaceful country side getting called a filthy gaijin
then spend one or two days visiting the holy land
For me, I would spend a week or two in every location and take a train to the next. I had a backpack to carry all my day-to-day stuff and a few changes of clothes, and a larger piece of luggage for I'd mail to each new location via takyuubin service (either the post office or kuroneko company). I'd stay in mostly Japanese hostels and make reservations to each new place online a week ahead. It's pretty easy to make reservations because there are a shit ton of reservation service sites you can google.
Other than that, pack light and use the larger luggage as a storage for extra clothes and souvenirs and such. It's not hard to talk to people on your travels-- because most of them are going to come up and want to talk to you, first.
Aside from that, read up on places you think you'd like to go to, don't be afraid to talk to people and try new things on the fly, and try not to get overwhelmed by the freedom that comes with traveling alone.
Also, Japan sucks for public wifi, but Starbucks has easy access. Also this public wifi service called 'Wi2"will overcharge you to hell on the english site, but the Japanese site gives monthly access for about 5 bucks and is pretty reliable.
Why does Japan do fast-food better than the states?
I studied abroad in Tokyo. Shit was cash. Akihabara as my jam. Spent most of my weekends there, also I realized I have a gambling addiction for crane games. I won a 50 dollar saber figure for 200 yen, that was cool
Yeah, several times. It's basically a big mall where you can buy anime, manga, games, music, merchandise, and other random stuff at the big department stores. And of course there are plenty of gaijins, including me, but Tokyo is pretty cosmopolitan in general compared to the rest of Japan, so it's par for the course in the city.
I should be fine carrying a katana in glorious nippon right? I can't wait to meet a samurai while I'm there.
Jesus, how insecure can you be?
If you can't tell your girlfriend upfront that you watch moe SOL then you shouldn't be with her in the first place
What does she even have going on for you to keep hiding your hobbies? that's not healty anon, not at all.
It's all about that inaka life working on a farm, now. Japan is desperate to repopulate the countryside with young people-- and are not-so-subtly putting QT college-educated Japanese girls and foreigners together on a farm to make that happen..
Is the farming life worth it? Because that incentive they have going is pretty tempting tbqh fampai
Oh, I have a few questions!
Are all of you that have gone fluent in Japanese or what? If not, what's your level of proficiency in it?
Can you get by knowing nothing? What's the level where it actually becomes useful, assuming memorizing the kana is basically knowing nothing?
Much shorter work days than the city (though with more physical work), hole-in-the-wall cheap yakitori bars in the evening, lots of natural beauty in the mountains to behold, farmer jiisans and baasans are friendly and based as fuck in all ways and are completely incoherent even if you are reasonably fluent, QT college girls (and boys) living with you,-- all of them are prime wife material, plenty of spooky ass haikyo ghost adventures, country-side cooking is hearty and amazing...
The only downside is if you hate the thought of living in the middle of nowhere in a tiny town. I love the isolation and laid-back pace, though.
I'm >>138608099, I would say my spoken Japanese is okayish. Not great but good enough for normal conversation. I can read the news, or at least get what it's about most of the time.
Spoilering because blogshit.
We got really drunk and started hitting on girls with our broken Japanese in the red light district, Shinjuku I think, not too sure. That actually didn't turn out well, but just like moment later some uni/high school girls approached us and asked if we wanted to pay them. Surprisingly they only asked for 8000 yen, which is practically nothing. We agreed, took the girls to a motel and fucked (kinda like an orgy party). If I remember correctly they weren't too ugly, but they seemed like runaways from home because they were a bit dirty and smelly at first. A quick shower took care of it tjough. You could say we were very lucky. I don't have fantasy love stories to tell you how I lost my virginity but yeah, this is how I lost it. Kind of regretting it now. It's not the best thing imaginable.
Being from rural sticksville myself....eh, it ain't so bad so long as there's internet, but even that isn't a deal breaker. I love physical work. So long as there was a roof over my head and food to eat I'd do that shit for free to live as a japanese farmboy.
Ew. I don't want to rant or anything but this isn't how I would have liked to lose mine.
Because the Elevens are unbelievably, hilariously racist, in a nonchalant, charming 1950s way. I mean the Chinese aren't really people to them and whites are exotic and kinda scary at the least.
Well, I did get my Masters in international finances. But also a shitload of money and connections from my father. I just know how to deal with lots of money, and with people who have lots of money since, well, I'm one of them.
>he lost his virginity to literal smelly high school prostitutes
A cozy room, family meals, lots of beer, and peaches as big as your head, anon.
Yeah. Don't do it man. I guess it feels good to know that I'm not labeled as a virgin anymore though. The girls were ok, obviously it wasn't their first time, I guess as a whole we enjoyed it. The girls got their fuck and money and my friends and I got to get our virgin labels off.
Just as a side note, the whores in the red ligjt district love us gaijins but other Japanese don't really look fond upon us so be patient and calm dealing with people there, especially when you don't have a Japanese friend around.
>grizzly old 22 year old
I don't want to age anymore.
Being a first timer is never a pretty process anon. It's awkward as fuck and usually embarassing as fuck for the guy because no matter what, the girl expects you to know what you're doing.
Shit, lost mine to a virgin hunter. fucking smelly homeless highschool girls is my fetish.
They weren't that smelly. If they were we wouldn't have agreed to pay them probably (i don't know we were too drunk). After the shower they smelled like fresh Japanese school girls. A smell of mixed shampoo, conditioners, soap, and milk.
That's not Chinese fuccboi
Fuck it, a lot of people seem to mistake me for Japanese at first meeting, hopefully it's enough to avoid too much
It's overrated, Nipponbashi in Osaka is way better. Akiba has the most overcrowded arcades ever.
And it's full of gaijin instead of cute cosplayers like Nipponbashi had on every corner.
First time, fucked with my first gf, didn't know how to do it, couldn't even pleasure myself, ended quite disappointed myself while the Russian was telling me it was ok. It's only during the third try that I actually got the hang of it.
Living in Japan's countryside right now is a lot like NNB, except without the children.
NNB is propaganda to make that future come true-- 3 new families in my town are expecting babies soon, and I can guarantee more are coming.
Just don't be a weeb or otaku. They hate those. I'm a gook, I lived in Japan for 1 year, they're practically fine if you don't mess with them or show them that you're weak. That being said, I went to an international school during that one year so yeah.
I was chatting with my tailor in Tokyo, nice old guy, and he basically talks about how shitty, smelly and disgusting the Chinese are all day ("like happy pig").
I think the Nips are hilarious people.
>things that never happened general
I assume by "red light district" you're trying to reference Kabukicho. Yeah, good luck "drunkenly hitting on girls" there, where it's a ratio of 1 girl per 5 yakuza barkers prowling around outside their soaplands and gay host clubs.
Have not been there for months
It looses its charm once you realize you can just get what you want on Yahoo auctions/rakuten instead much cheaper
Rural farm stays. Seek out the ones run by groups of young Japanese people sick of the overworked salaryman/OL culture.
You wake up with the sun, put in a hard 6-10 hours work outdoors to revitalize Japan's dwindling farm sector, make good money, and have everything generally provided for you.
Anytime you miss the city, you can hop on a nightbus with your QTJapanese tomboy girlfriend and spend a weekend goofing around.
It's nice when you're just browsing and not looking for anything in particular. I like that one porn shop off the main road that specializes in all muscle girl doujins and vids.
Have not really been offroad, it is all the same to me
The most interesting part of Akihabara to me nowadays is that store that repairs fashion bags
Question, are the light novels and bookstores easily found and cheaper than what you see online? Also I heard a couple game stores have the really retro games for really cheap, is that true?
There's lots of retro games stores, prices vary depending on rarity and whether there's mint packaging and stuff. But most common games you can get super cheap.
There are cafes and stuff that have NESes set up you can play, those are comfy.
Bookstores are everywhere, you don't have to go to Akiba to get LNs, there's like a Book Off on every corner or Kinokuniya if you want a bigger Borders-style store.
Retro games seems to be really cheap, you can find a lot of them for the equivalent of a euro
If you want books you can try Nakano sunplaza, it is a hell of a lot more convenient to navigate then Akihabara
>I guess it feels good to know that I'm not labeled as a virgin anymore though.
You nigs realize that you don't walk around with a sticker on your forehead that says "VIRGIN" right? When I started dating it felt a lot more important to be able to develop a relationship with a chick. The sex itself is far less important than getting to that point naturally. Paying money for sex is like having someone else do your homework.
Guys who go to whores act much more like virgins that guys who have a lot of friends but haven't had sex for whatever reason.
>yfw the Jap government worker shills on here right now succeed
>Japan sees an influx of gaijin storming their farms in the next few years
Yes to the first 3 but I am only a girl on the internet
All over the place.. there's the big Sega places, and then you have the smaller arcades that can be found near pretty much any arcade station, that mostly have a few games, street fighter, initial d, etc plus a bunch of crane games and printclub machines up front for all the girls. And then there's the fucking pachinko parlors everywhere.
>he can't smell virginity
Gotta step up your femdom game
Because it is. The country is paying me to work and shill at the same time. Shit's getting bad-- Japanese people aren't fucking and are holing themselves up in cities as the rural areas decline.
I ain't lying, about the day-to-day life, though. Shit's great and I don't plan on leaving.
You live in rural japan? if so I am fucking jelly
I live in the fucking gigantic sea that is the Tokyo suburbs with no real patch of grass in sight for miles and miles
I was also in Akiba this new year's. I survived eating from atre, the fucking chicken sold there was godly and cheap as fuck.
Honestly, I might actually consider this as a future prospect for me. I'm a college freshman with literally no clue what he wants to do in the future and with no real talents or academic specialties. Farming life doesn't sound too bad.
Alright you faggot how do I get in on this? Don't tell me to just google "farm stay Japan", I don't want to end up in the boonies without speaking a lick of Japanese, surrounded by old people. I was promised college age Japanese qts, where they at?
Have not really checked thoroughly but I would seriously doubt there would be English version of games available
>Do they ever have english version of games lying around especially the retro.
Yeah, there are import sections in some of the stores, those are the kind of things you'd have to go to Akiba or Nakano Broadway to find probably.
>Also should I be wary of delinquents in arcades?
You never really see the manga style delinquents, it's mostly just a pack of ordinary highschool kids giggling and eating potato chips and stuff, or bored workers on their lunchbreak.
>Most people speak english
Major stores have English signs and someone that can help you but do not ever count on it regardless
Very few people speak English
That being said that I almost shat myself when I was in this local trift store in my suburb neighborhood whos only purpose is to house people and both people owning the store spoke perfect English with absolutely no accent whatsoever
I wouldn't say most people speak english, not fluently, but yeah there's plenty of english signage, and enough people speak "enough" english to help you through important necessities.
You'd really go a lot farther to learn a little japanese first, though.
Only once last January, all these plamo I want them all. Any longer and I would have taken out the credit card for all the Graze recolours ,AC and Metal Gear stuff.
Damnit I thought the inner /m/anchildren was sealed long ago.
>can't speak Japanese
No QTs for you.
But seriously, you can start with sites/companies like WWOOFJapan. Once you get there, you build connections and ask around about opportunities in other prefectures like Nagano and Wakayama. Lots of younger farmers in Nagano, especially, who are there because they love skiing/snowboarding.
Knowing the language will make the difference in opening doors between working on some stange old man's pumpkin patch in absolute nowhere, and working in a small city with a bunch of QTs.
America has this problem at all.
A farmer ain't exactly an attractive job.
Also, with how much people rely on the internet these days, becoming a farmer means giving up on fast internet.
I remember that slot machine
I never used it
If you wanna hear about gangsters, though, I met the real guy who was used as the model for Ushijima the Loan Shark. That was mildly scary.
>giving up fast internet
>anywhere in Japan
Even in relative middle of nowhere, I'm riding on fat fiber optic pipes.
But, yeah, farming isn't exactly glamorous, but fuck glamour. I'm growing apples and peaches and giving fruit-picking tours. It's an honest job and a good, simple living that I'm happy to do.
I'm always surprised to find out what kind of people come to /a/.
My Dad works for UBS as well, he's a "Managing Director – Wealth Management" from as far as I understand. I don't do business, so don't ask me about anything more.
>Will Japan be ruined after the Olympics?
Stale meme. Japan "hates foreigners" and is "xenophobic" probably about a third as much as America.
>Even in relative middle of nowhere, I'm riding on fat fiber optic pipes.
This, the entire country is on fiber. Japan and South Korea are crazy wired, they really benefit from not having their internet piggybacked on the ancient outdated copper phone line infrastructure.
Well, I've been going to this site for nearly a decade, I'd be a sucker to stop now.
In Zurich as well, though? I mean, UBS has 50.000 employees or so, so I'm gonna say the chance that I'm your dad is pretty slim.
Why does /a/ pretend to hate 3D until some shill starts selling you an obviously too good to be true scam about farms filled with cute young girls? If it was so great working on a farm, Japanese people would be there already.
Don't worry, just talk to them about relevant cultural phenomena. Paired with your three years of Japanese studying and other asian language, it'll be okay. Nothing gets a convo going like talking about the great nukige you played the other day.
Yes, it's rather easy to visit when I live 30 minutes from it by metro. Most recently went on Saturday.
Also I'm suprised how many people on /a/ are actually desperate to pick up Japanese schoolgirls.
I actually talked a little online with a guy who lived there. It was the FFVII cult dude, I found the story so fascinating I went to ask him where he wound up. He moved to Japan and said the body odor was so bad you could smell it as soon as you entered A-Town
Is true that in japan, people throe manga to the garbage ?
This video is mexican so i dont trust it.
Tokyo has tourist centre in the train stations and the trains have english sign which is enough and Akiba have english version of the local map.
I don't know moon either and travelled with JR pass for more than a week across Japan just fine.
A smartphone and travel apps would have been more than enough.
Because most people who obsess over anime enough to browse this cesspool are deeply conflicted. They tricked themselves into thinking they hate 3D.
Then these threads come along and they see a way out of their shit life. Only to have their dreams crushed as they find out that it's not so simple for foreigners to gain residency.
>plucking apples with qt tomboy gf
>some /a/ faggot rides up in a tractor
>"Reminder that if you like tomboys, you are, for all intents and purposes, a homosexual"
>throws a fucking paper airplane at my face and rides away
>open it up to find a smug anime girl printed on it
Yeah I went in november. It was pretty much what its like in anime but with more people. there were fat losers checking out porn in shops, few maid cafes scattered here and there, lots of japs, and a surprising amount of westerners buying figurines.
Spent a month in Tokyo last summer, Akihabara was easily where I visited the most. Really quite the fun place, I quite enjoyed just wandering around aimlessly. Though I enjoyed wandering around aimlessly all over Tokyo really.
>there were fat losers checking out porn in shops
Hey, don't generalize, in eroge stores and on eroge-related events I often see perfectly normal-looking people.
And you forgot to mention fucking PooInTheLoos and Chinks everywhere.
>just sitting around in the sun, drinking cold sake and thinking about visiting Iwo Jima or something
>that one guy with an Asuka daki rides up to me on his fucking tractor again
>shouts over the tractor noise >IMPLYING REI ISN'T A SHIT, MFW LIVELESS DOLL
>so done with this nigga
Tokyo is an extremely easy city to navigate for an English speaker. There are also people around who speak English.
You'll really only run into problems if you head out to the countryside.
Went to Akiba and Nakano Broadway last month. Akiba has a shit ton of volume but it's mostly newer stuff in terms of seasonal anime goods, although you can still find Nanoha shit everywhere and of course robots galore. Prices on good can get kind of high depending on the store and it is a bit tourist trapy even saw these two fags with furry tails.
Nakano is smaller but you can find older stuff and the prices in general were better. Oh and way less fat weebs that can't handle their power level.
yeah there were a few normal looking people, but at least 70% weren't.
I didn't see too many street shitters, but at least the squat toilets aren't too uncommon in japan so they feel relatively at home.
Oh man Nakano Broadway, that place was fantastic. Mandarake headquarters, with something like 25 separate shops all dedicated to different things.
I was so excited when I found the store selling original production materials on the third floor. Got myself a cel from CardCaptor Sakura as well as some setting/design sheet packs and storyboards.
Went there about two years ago with my dad. Shit was awkward since I couldn't read moon and walked into porn shops a few times. Going to Tokyo again by myself on the 23rd.
A-any anons going around that time and want to h-hang out?
>tfw the shills here have succesfully made me actually consider this lifestyle
though it's not like I have any other idea what to do after graduating
Tell me how bad a life it actually is /a/
Just look at this happy, attractive family.
They're moving to the country to work! Do you think I or the Japanese government would try to sugarcoat the inaka lifestyle to get people to work in an economic sector in desperate need of young blood?
I think not.
Anything involving service there is a million times better than the stats it blew me away how clean and efficient everyone was at all times. Oh and my food looked like the fucking pictures on the menu every single time.
This was from a google search, don't get your panties twisted too fast by the way

I used it and I don't regret. Get to live in a stereotypical 6 tatami room straight from anime, drinking most nights with the owner talking shit. He even guided me to some cool places in his free time.
There's no reason to not use airbnb, unless you can't talk Japanese.
>move your kid out to the middle of bumbfuck nowhere
>no work to be had except poor paying, back breaking physical labor
Good job, mom and dad!
It's not that hard, really. Japan won't let some deadbeat enter their country legally (this is a good thing), but if you've got an education, you can probably find your way in.
>looking around big store in Akiba
>go into a random section
>suddenly all school girls and women
>confused when they start all whispering to each-other
>look closely at the shelf and realize I've entered the BL section
Kek, I went there when I was 12 with a friend of my aunt who lives in Tokyo and we walked into a couple porn shops
Then we went to a maid cafe, mind you I'm half jap but the maid voices fucking threw me off, like they inhale helium on break or some shit.
Seriously, fuck Japan's obsession with kawaii high voices, I really can't see anything cute about it. Mature yet light voices are much better.
If you think fruit or rice farming is backbreaking, you've never worked a day in your life. It's physically demanding, but not remotely tough if you are in reasonably good shape.
No one gets into farming expecting to be a millionaire. It's good money, though. And in Japan-- enough to buy plenty of land and a multi-story house with all the modern amenities fit for a damn king compared to the cubicle you'd get in the city.
Plus, you have almost all of winter off to do whatever the hell you want.
same fampai. it was my second time there, third time in Japan overall. first time around I almost bought some used panties. this time I just bought a tenga, but I broke it first hump. went to kotobukiya both times. also bought a softcore porn the first time about upskirts from an animal's perspective called pet-ai/eye.
gomen gomen. i'm new here.
Fresh off the boat, from reddit, kid? heh I remember when I was just like you. Braindead. Lemme give you a tip so you can make it in this cyber sanctuary: never make jokes like that. You got no reputation here, you got no name, you got jackshit here. It's survival of the fittest and you ain't gonna survive long on 4chan by saying stupid jokes that your little hugbox cuntsucking reddit friends would upboat. None of that here. You don't upboat. You don't downboat. This ain't reddit, kid. This is 4chan. We have REAL intellectual discussion, something I don't think you're all that familiar with. You don't like it, you can hit the bricks on over to imgur, you daily show watching son of a bitch. I hope you don't tho. I hope you stay here and learn our ways. Things are different here, unlike any other place that the light of internet pop culture reaches. You can be anything here. Me ? heh, I'm a judge.. this place.... this place has a lot to offer... heh you'll see, kid . . . that is you can handle it...
>you've never worked a day in your life
Nobody in any developed country wants to be farm muscle. Why? Because you spend all day under the hot sun swinging a hoe and pulling shit out of the ground, and what you have to show for it is a pittance. Even people who are interested in physical labor will gravitate towards something that'll give them somewhat better standards of living, like building shit.
Aight, shill, you did your job today, once I'm done with that degree and than N1 I'm flying over to get a taste of the inaka life.
A cat falls in love with a girl.
Unable to confess, he is gifted with by a deus ex machina with the girl's phone number. Never minding the strange area code, he immediately calls her, and is overjoyed to find out that she has a crush on him as well.
But, the next day, when he intended to recounts the previous day's confessions to the girl, she only looks at him with a perplexed expression because she doesn't understand cat language. After some investigation, he finds out that the girl he called is not the same girl he fell in love with. In fact, she doesn't exist in this universe at all. She is the girl's alternate cat universe counterpart, who has fallen in love with the MC's own AU non-cat self, who too is blissfully unaware of her crush because cats and humans can't communicate in that universe either.
Hijinks ensue as the two strike up a deal to give each other their darkest, most private secrets in order to equip the other with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of their other selves without requiring verbal communication because cats and humans can't understand each other duh. While the two chase their respective loved ones, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other instead and question the NATURE of LOVE.
Alright, listen up tumblr fags. I come from the far superior website 4chan, and i've noticed that you've been using our meme. The "feels frog" meme, or "pepe" has been a 4chan meme since the site came about, certainly longer then your faggot website for fags. Like jesus, i've looked around this website for 5 minutes and already you sjw shitbags are using our meme improperly. You reflect poorly on all of the anons when you steal our ORIGINAL MEME and turn it into a fucking tumblr thing. I mean jesus crist i just wish you all would shut the fuck up or go to 4chan to post pepes. So fuck you all you tumblrfags, get a life or become an anon. Like seriously with your fuckin peice of shit memes that wouldn't even be accepted on /b/. As a loyal /b/tard, i think it's my duty to tell all of you faggots off, go kill yourself fuckin sjw trash.
i think its time to put the keyboard down, son.
I'm drawing the line here motherfucker. Yeah you heard me right. This right here is the END for your little 'meme'. Did you know that I have contacts in high 4chan administration positions? I bet you didn't, but you do now. And you know what comes next? That's right you goofy little faggot, your 'inside joke' is getting BANNED. They owe me kid, and I'm about to cash that favor with a site-wide silencing of this shitty meme that has flooded our site. Your butt is gonna clench and sweat as you huff pathetic gasps of air, once you read the big red letters (You have been BANNED). And you know what the reason is gonna be? It's gonna be because you crossed me. You tried me. You thought you could tiptoe right past the line of my patience, but you FAILED, and now the retarded joke you love to giggle to so much is gone. I want you to remember that, I want you to remember me when you have to find something else to do with your life, other than Banepost. Remember that, you miserable little faggot.
- Eating and drinking while walking around are seen as bad manners, if you're going to do so, loiter near the conbini and dispose of it here (some even have space to sit at)
- Rent a pocket wi-fi at the airport, return it when you leave.
- Do you mean an IC train card? If you're just coming to visit, consider getting a JR pass before you leave, if you plan to travel around a bit it can save you a bundle. Other than that (ro subways, etc.), research what they offer (2/3 day unlimited use cards, etc.) and see what would be cheapest.
Lived her for a decade or so, ask away.
All those channels about Japan on Youtube are dominated by Canadian females.
He is one of the few who isn't Canadian and does stupid shit like eat a Japanese burger and then blog about it.
Seriously, what is up with Canadian girls and Japan?
If you ask me, it makes more sense for Australians to make video blogs about Japan compared to Canadians considering how closer and cheaper it is for an Australian to fly to Japan compared to a Canadian.
Just my 2 yen, but you'll be pretty bushed, especially if it's hot out. You'll want a place to shower/sleep at least, and backpacker hostels are usually full of pretty annoying people.
>what is up with Canadian girls and Japan
Because it works the other way around too, we are getting a lot of nips coming over here, just recently my cousin's friend went to moonland and came back with a moonwife.
Unlike the other Japanese bloggers, that guy actually worked with broadcasters like NHK before.
You know, like he had an actual job in Japan that wasn't being an English teacher.
Meanwhile, those other bloggers in Japan don't seem to have real jobs in Japan at all and I bet they are gonna have to marry someone soon in Japan unless they want to get eventually kicked out.
