has anyone ever traveled to Japan?

i dont know what i would do there, but i really want to go and just walk around. im not a weeaboo so im not going for anime.

what was your experience and whst did you do while you were there. id be willing to spend $5,000-6,000 on the trip. how long could i stay in japan on this budget. i also dont know any japanese. will that be a problem?

I lived in Japan for 4 years. Kyoto is great, but you have to book hotels in the city proper a year in advance for things like cherry blossom viewing.

You don't need to know Japanese to go to Kyoto or Tokyo, but man, it sure helps.

yes, if you;re white good luck trying to blend in. People will avoid you like you have some sort of disease. And think about this for a second, WHY do you want to go there? Seriously, think about it.

What the fuck did they expect? japan is a world leader in technology and the birth place of some of the strangest faashion and subcultures of the modern day. Not to mention they have all the standard cool architecture and shit people travel for, with a remarkably polite populous who don't treat you like dogshit like they do in france. Its a great place to travel to.

Nice trips.

I've been to Japan. Majority do not speak English, even in Tokyo. At hostels/hotels they will. It would be a good idea to learn some basic Japanese.

I went back packing around Japan for around 4-5k AUD including flight tickets for 3 weeks, including a 2 week shinkansen rail pass.

I've also been around Europe, Japan is def #1 on my list

I'm actually leaving for Tokyo on Sunday.

Here's my tips:
1. Be very polite
2. Don't say "your welcome" and just sort of reject all compliments as if you're worse than the other person.
3.Take your shoes off in people's houses
4. Offer your seat to elderly and make eye contact on the trains.

I'm from Japan, but lived in NZ for 15+ years. Basically everything is written in Japanese as soon as you leave Tokyo, Osaka and other major areas, and very few people speak English or actually know what they're saying once outside of these said areas. Anyone in their 30+ won't speak very much English (if at all) either. Basically if you don't know how to speak or read Japanese, stick to the main areas where there are other tourists and/or go with someone that can speak it. By 2019/2020 Tokyo should be more English friendly with the upcoming Rugby World Cup and Olympics being hosted there.

The English education favors American English so you may have an advantage or disadvantage depending on your accent in terms of getting through to them. Buy an internet card when you get there so you can use Maps and Translate, and use English internet guides to tour the major centres.

There's plenty of stuff that doesn't involve anime.

Try staying in a ryokan instead of a western hotel.
Go to an onsen (bath house).
Eat some weird cakes.
Buy Kitkat with green tea.
Visit the Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo. Eat sushi in one of the small restaurants there.
Go to Kamakura or Nara (especially Nara) to see some old temples. Nara is also filled with tame deer. You can buy crackers and hand feed them!
See the museum in Hiroshima (not a feel-good place)
Ride the Shinkansen!
Climb Mt. Fuji (Climbing may be over selling it. There are trails all the way to the top.)

There are lots of temples, big and small. Once you start looking for them you'll start seeing them everywhere. Even in Tokyo you can find small temples nestled in between skyscrapers and shopping malls.

You don't have to know japanese in the larger cities, but a little japanese helps. Just being able to say a few phrases shows that you care. Make sure you rent a portable wifi hotspot so you can use Google Maps for navigation. It'll also give you the line and station names in kanji so you can match it with the signs (the signs in Tokyo and Kyoto are in english though)

Many restaurants don't have english menus, and ordering a complete meal can be difficult without it. The waiters are usually helpful and the look on their face will let you know if you've ordered something odd.

With that budget you can probably get two or three weeks including hotels and food.

I've seen enough people who are relevant for the music to not be as important

Happened across some Metalfags in the smoking area who weren't as much of a shut in as you so I guess that's worth something

People can wear what they want, cool thing is when ya dance that nobody cares who you are and how you do it, just all there to forget about everything for a night

that's because retard westerners think japanese are pokemon that are fighting for dragonballs while wearing maid outfits as they scream "KAWAII!!!!".

literally every claim about how insane japanese are is extremely exaggerated. there's no fucked up porn unless you go to underground weirdo stores. there's no used panty machines. no people using weird inventions. it's a country with regular humans, anyone who expects anything else are retarded as fuck.

I literally went there less than a month ago for about 2 weeks, so ask away.

5-6k depends on where you stay and how far you venture away from the city you fly into. If you're cool with staying in a hostel, you can get away with only spending ~30$ a night. Alternatively you can stay in a capsule hotel for about the same about, but you'll likely have to spend an extra few dollars a day for a locker.

The higher end places are Ryokans, traditionally style Japanese inns. I'd recommend you stay at least one night in one, just for the experience. Decent ones will run you about $150.

Fewer people will speak english than you expect, and the ones that are good at it will appear in random locations. In other words, unless you talk with other foreigners, expect your conversations to be a matter of pointing and single Japanese or English words for most of your stay.

Travel is all done by train/bus. You can get a Japan Rail Pass, but it's only valid for one railway, and only worthwhile if you ride the bullet train across the country a few times.

I spent most of my time traveling/hiking and seeing novel Japanese things. Hot springs are worthwhile experience as well.

Stay away from Pachinko.
>>
>>685699909
Nara with the deer is absolutely based. It's a really cool experience.

Shinkansen is overrated. It's a train. It's a fast train, but just a train in the end.

You can stay for at least 2 weeks, probably 4 if you limit your spending with that budget.
