TOURISM UPDATES

02/03 - From NHK News - Japan Passes Revised Anti-Virus Laws. Officials will soon be able to levy fines against people or businesses that break anti-virus rules. That includes those who test positive for the virus and are told to check into a hospital, but refuse. Individuals who lie to health officials or refuse their inquiries will also face punishments. Government efforts to stem the spread of the virus include shortening operating hours for bars and restaurants. Under the new rules, businesses that don't comply can be fined up to about 3,000 dollars. Conversely, the legal changes make it mandatory for governments to take financial measures to help affected businesses.

02/03 - From The Guardian - Olympic Organisers To Ban Singing In Silent Tokyo Games. Detailed guidelines for broadcasters, athletes and the media will be released in the coming days. While a decision on whether to allow fans to attend is not expected for a few months, anyone watching the events will be told to refrain from singing or shouting and to show their support by applauding instead.

02/02 - From The Japan Times - Japan Should Restart Go To Travel Campaign In March, Senior LDP Official Says. Japan should look to reinstate its domestic travel incentive program as soon as March to shore up the tourist industry, a senior ruling party official said, even after a study last month indicated the campaign may have spread the coronavirus.

02/02 - From NHK News - State Of Emergency Extended For One Month. The state of emergency covers 11 prefectures and was originally set to expire on Sunday. Suga said the number of new infections has been decreasing in Tokyo and across the country since the state of emergency took effect last month. He said measures, including shortened business hours for restaurants and bars, have been successful.

OLYMPIC UPDATES

An article posted by the Asahi Shimbun explains that canceling the Olympics is coming closer to a reality:
http://www.asahi.com/ajw/articles/14091366

Key points:
>“The Tokyo Olympics could be canceled if the state of emergency is not lifted by March,” an official of Tokyo’s organizing committee said.
>At the end of March, the torch relay is scheduled to start from Fukushima Prefecture. Around the same time, a government-led panel is expected to decide on whether to restrict the number of spectators during the Olympic Games.
>Dick Pound, the longest-serving member of the International Olympics Committee (IOC), said he could not be sure if the Tokyo Games would go ahead as rescheduled. “I can’t be certain because the ongoing elephant in the room would be the surges in the virus,” Pound said, according to the BBC

Hi anons, hope you're doing good.
I'm currently at art school; after I finish I want to move to Tokyo straight away. Ideally, I wish to work for some sort of small/medium size creative company (think Vice but not as big) doing stuff like graphic design/photography/publication design/writing/etc. I'm currently working on personal projects in my own time so will have a decent sized portfolio to show to companies once I graduate, and could technically claim some sort of 'experience' in the industry I suppose.
What are the chances of me, a freshly graduated foreigner, landing this sort of job? Obviously I would have fluent Japanese by the time it comes to applying for work in Tokyo, so language barriers wouldn't be an issue, or at the very least communication would be functional. Apologies for the naivete, I'm new to all this and want to prepare as far in advance as I can
>>
>>1956662
>What are the chances of me, a freshly graduated foreigner, landing this sort of job?
No one can tell you for sure and frankly, it doesn’t matter since gauging your chances now won’t change them at all. But it should go without saying that you won’t be as highly demanded as someone with niche STEM credentials, for example. I’m sure you already know that. You want my advice? Get as good at Japanese as you possibly can, look up what sort of things people hiring those positions in Japan are including in postings, and just give it your best shot. Alternatively, consider transferring or going to another school in Japan. Do all of this with tempered expectations for both your doing a certain job and moving to Japan.

I’m going to Korea around September or so and plan to hit Fukuoka. I feel confident some level of normality will return by then.
>>
>>1956669
Hi anon, thanks for the helpful response
I was actually thinking about dropping out of art school to restart my undergrad in Tokyo, but my current school is really good and I figured that the language barrier would have prevented me from learning as much in Tokyo as I'm learning at my current school. Also, due to Japanese school year starting dates it's only an extra year of waiting if I stay and finish my degree at home. Could always do my masters degree in Japan though
Within the industry I'm trying to get into I don't think STEM is that important, my chances of getting side gigs relating to software development are probably hindered by not having a STEM degree though.
Worst comes to worst I can just get a job as an English teacher and take advantage of the abundance of free time I get to build up my portfolio haha

Alamo, the absolute state of regards with art degrees. This was mentioned in the last thread, but unless you're some graphic designer God, you're chances of getting hired in Japan in that field are minimal. They're going to pass over you for a native 99% of the time.

In terms of photoshop, their portraits get the same attention as female prostitutes. Some of them have a twitter you can check. It really depends if you want a guy to blow you or not. Libe list if they have cock and balls, p size, tits, height, etc. I did not see any listed that would be over 5'7". Some have 18cm dicks though down to 6-8cm.

Everywhere is 100% like this, even the $1000 scam escorts. It is completely random whether you score a cute girl or not, the only thing consistent is their height. This is why most people go to soaplands in-person because they let you choose face-to-face

So i am in japan now on a language course just because i decided to learn a language somewhere and Japan was one of few places quite normal atm.

Tue class is cool many cool normal people except this one guy who is a fucking huge nerd and geek and i almost want to punch him half the time. What is with these people?
We’re in a beginner class yet this guy is tue biggest fucking know it all i have ever met. He always says answers out loud even for irrelevant vocab we haven't learned just to be extra. Its off syllabus and slows down learning. If teacher asks another student a question if they take too long he literally answers for them. He even looks words up in the asian students languages to say them when the teacher asks them a word in their language.
He does homework ahead of issue, 3 weeks before its even asked of us to do. He learns Kanji way further than the lessons and is all extra about it. He literally has a case of 10 colour ball pens, writes everything the teacher says in colour code constantly. He writes tiny like a woman and perfectly.
Now fair enough if he is just a nerd but he is the kind that needs recognition and is thirsty for it constantly. For example, when i ordered a drink once he corrected me. I accepted it as i taught myself purely through speaking and hes a nerd so probably knows. The next week we covered it and i was correct he was wrong. He looked like he was gonna cry when hearing it.

He does this constantly by speaking vocab off syllabus and slowing down lessons while teacher has to explain it. He constantly tries to show ofd how much he knows about japan, apparently eating “nabe” every day and telling the teacher at any opportunity lol. He also does this with random aspects of japan which i wouldnt expect a 20 year old to even know. A few of us were once talking about how shit japanese TV is yet he defended it to death citing how if we understood difference between classical Japanese and western theatre we would see how it wasn't..
>>
Cont..
He will do this with random shit.
Any student asks a teacher a question? He will always try answer it first. Like shut the fuck up you are in beginner class and not the teacher. He non stop needs to try show his knowledge. It slows everything down.
In reality the guys a fucking geek who spends all his weekends and evenings reviewing class materials and doing next lessons before the next day.

Does every class have a fuck head like this? I was going to ask to be put into the afternoon beginner class but if there will be another one its pointless.

What is even up with these people? Is this what autism actually looks like?
>>
Have you tried explaining the situation to the teacher and ask if you can sit in on a different class? Just say it distracts you from learning or something.

Other than that, there is nothing wrong with others being studious in a school. Then when you progress through the classes, you will probably see him less.
>>
>>1957738

I want to but wasnt sure if there are always faggots like that.
Like right now the fuck just answers even when the teacher asked another student. Or if another TRIES he will instantly say the sentence for them from across the room because hes so fucking desperate for attention. Fuck me.

But yes anon i will explain this to tue teacher because she obviously cant handle him and tell him to stfu.
For the record i am advanced too as i spent a year learning, i just got put in beginner class because i cant write at all which they require.
I have a few gaps in knowledge so sometimes hes annoying directly but mostly im pissed for the other students and just want to punch him for being an attention starved know it all
>>
>>1957732
sounds like you should stop being a retard and be a better student like him
>>
>>1957750

I guess you are “that” student in class arent you. Its not just me. Hes isolated himself as nobody wants to hang out with him now
>>
>>1957752
and he'll learn japanese 5 years before you do
>>
>>1957776

Good for him, stop defending loner autism and lack of social skills. Who gives a fuck. My schools says 2 years for full syllabus so im going to go by its pace. I’ve talked to students here who completed it from 0 to hero.
All the other students are the same and realise it while having the social skills not to be a fucking obnoxious pretence know it all desperate for attention and lacking social context.

The kid will definitely learn japanese fast but thats not my point or worry. Hes making the learning environment worse for everyone else who has paied tuition and slowing down the syllabus as the teacher must explain his pretentious vocab which is not on any tests, or has to ask a student a question again after he answers for them and ruins their practice. Its no wonder class always ends late.

But yeah, nice to speak such good japanese alone in your room i guess
>>
>>1957790
>autistic retard comes to Japan, more at 11

No offense, but as a language school tard, he's basically your peer group
>>
>>1957793

Hes the only one. I actually expected worse but most of them are normal cool people. Hes literally the only weird autismo geek which surprised me a ton
>>
>>1957732
There's one of these in every class. He has good work ethics, you should try to imitate his good qualities and ignore the bad ones, since he is obviously autistic and not really responsible for his own actions.
>>
>>1957811

It was inspiring at first till it got irritating i have to admit
>>
>>1957826
I was taking community Japanese lessons with an autistic Canadian who didn’t like that I owned a car.

So I would just talk about cars with the other students all the time.
>>
>>1957880

Weird thing to be triggered by lol why was that
>>
>>1957884
My suspicion was it was either because he couldn’t afford a car as an English teacher or because he felt that owning a car was unnecessary.
>>
>>1957809
I thought it would be a lot worse too, what school are you going to

am i imagining things or did ALT salaries drop by like $10k over the last ten years? i recall when I first heard about JET in 2012 the salary was a first year was around $40,000. But in recent years I've seen it's closer to $30,000

They've been in decline since the 90's.

Now that they're allowing Filipinos it's pretty much game over.

You get about ~35k, JET's get some benefits though that why aren't cash in the bank stuff like transportation allowence, rent assistance etc is added.
>>
>>1956671
The weather is fucking perfect that time of year. All the japenese people wear huge coats and dress like it's winter as if it's madated. It was pretty much 60-70 degrees every single day. Wasn't even cold in the alps.

>>
>>1959167
Yeah, I applied to JET once right out of college but didn’t get in. I didn’t consider any other teaching opportunities in Japan afterward because it didn’t seem worth it at all. JET at least has some decent benefits with the subsidized housing and all
>>
>>1958667
ALT jobs are like a lottery. The biggest companies (and the ones most likely to hire someone overseas after a single Skype interview) will have you going to different schools, sometimes multiple schools in a single day. They'll try to make it sound nice by arranging housing (at an inflated rate) and a car (so you can drive to rural schools). Other ALT jobs are comfy and you might work 2 hours a day and spend the rest of the time shooting the shit with young Japanese teachers in the lounge. They usually pay the lowest amount the government will allow for someone on a work visa. Eikaiwa (conversational school) jobs are on average better located and higher paying but the cushiest of ALT jobs will work fewer hours and have fewer responsibilities.

Can anyone help me find a relatively large private onsen? Ideally one that allows mixed gender use?

We're gonna be a group of 2 girls and 3 guys and the ladies are feeling a bit shy about being nude with Japanese women and seeing each other naked. I also think it would be nice for all of us to be together in the onsen rather than being segregated by gender.

I'm going to Hakone this weekend for the first time. Is the Izu peninsula also worth walking around?

Izu very nice but its a summer area imo. Not worth going now. North of tokyo is more interesting this time of year but the snow is melting very fast now
>>
>>1959249

Your best bet is an onsen theme park.any have lots of rooms and they are private some quite large.
>>
>>1959249
I have not used a private onsen or had a room with one. You can rent them out in 30m to 1hour time frames, if they are available. It is pretty common from what I have looked up to find a room that has an private bath in it.

I use these sites to look for Ryokans with an onsen. I have only ever booked through the Ryokans site or Japanican though.
https://www.japaneseguesthouses.com/hot-springs/
https://www.japanican.com/
>>
>>1959249
There are plenty of private onsen all over Japan. Many public facilities (not all) will have private ones available for a small fee. These are "kazoku buro" or "kashi kiri buro". The sizes will vary, but there are plenty of large ones. However I don't see how that will alleviate your friends' anxieties about seeing each other naked.
>>
>>1959224
Yeah he sperged way too much over something so simple, and the writing style makes it seems like he's on the spectrum. I hope he doesn't end up beating that guy.
>>
>>1959302

Ehh. I asked the guy and apparently he is actually autistic which explains why hes an annoying geek.
So although i minimized interaction with him, i still have to put up with him being annoying in class and disrupting things. I talked to other students and most of them agreed with me.

Obviously its not appropriate to tell tue other students he makes me wanna punch him, which is why im limiting my full expression to an anonymous message board you absolute fucking mongs.
Its not even over reacting to a simple thing. Either you have never dealt with it or are on the spectrum yourself. Autistic people are really annoying and doubly so if you didnt even realise they were and just think they are pretentious. Now i know the kid has autism i give him a bit of a pass but it is still in fact annoying.
This site is the only appropriate place to fully vent for obvious reasons.
>>
>>1959301
>seeing each other naked.
Well, the idea is if we get a private bath, the ladies can wear bathing suits.
>>
>>1959379
There's onsens that have co-ed public baths. You are usually required to wear a bathing suit.

Where are good places to buy clothes for men in Tokyo?

Im still new and want to buy a lot of new clothes, but i just keep defaulting back to Uniqlo. Its convenient but a little plain. Would really like more variety. Not looking for any strange styles or anything, just current trends.

Any suggestions? Department stores good for men, shops anything?
I dont mind spending money but not major designer brands. They are easy to find if i want them anyway.
>>
>>1959379

If you are all that concerned about being naked go to an Onsen theme oark. There is one in izu where you must wear bathing suits. Its got a huge waterfall next to the baths.
Or Takaragawa Onsen. Huge and nice but forced clothing in water. Nice experience but imo the water wasnt very warm.
>>
>>1959413
A few off the top of my head are Beams, Urban Research Doors, Right On, Global Work, Comme Ca Ism, and Bayflow. All the guys I know aren't very into fashion, though, and they'll more often than not rely on Uniqlo and Muji.

Back in 2018, I did a homestay in Japan (Saitama) for 2 weeks.

My room was next to the daughter's. A week into the homestay, she started masturbating in her room so loud that at dawn the next morning, the host mother burst into her room and screamed at her. Later she apologised to my face during breakfast for "my daughter being so loud"

Probably one of the most awkward situations that I've ever been in. At least she didn't accuse me of banging her daughter. tl;dr walls in Japan are very thin.

Do people really think that Japan is cold? I live near Toronto and I can't imagine Tokyo being much colder than here in the winter.
>>
>>1961148
I used to live in Michigan.

The northern part of Honshu and Hokkaido get a ton of snow. But I’ve lived in Tokyo for the last 4 winters and only the first one had any notable snowfall. The big issue here is that homes get cold in the winter because of poor insulation/ lack of central heat. IMO, it’s not as bad as most expats make it out to be but it can be difficult for people living older homes or apartments.

Joypolis was fun, they had a Neon Genesis Rhythm game roller coaster when I went. You could probably spend 2 to 4 hours there depending on what you like. The gundam takes like 10 minutes to see.

For any aussies here i have some advice.
If you have the spare cash and financial security to be without several thousand for a while, buy some yen either as cash or on a travel money card while our dollar is doing fuckin good.
I went in Nov 2017 and 100 yen was $1.11. Went again in Nov 2018 and it had risen to $1.32. It has hovered around that for all the 2.5 years since.
Right now its gotten down to 100 yen being $1.19.
I think if it keeps heading down ill buy in at $1.15. probably like $2-3000, easily enough for a whole trip (as most accommodation and flights will be bought in AUD online before going)

I assume its mostly people who have been that still hang around here? If you haven't been to japan yet, you must like pain or have strong will to be hanging about here still with no hope in sight of a trip actually happening.

Post favourite places you stayed and why they were your favourite.
Could be good access to what you wanted to do, could be the place itself was nice. anything.

I really liked staying in ikebukuro. it had a real good area that made for the absolute perfect night out (for my tastes).
Has the best ramen around at Mutekiya (go there, its worth it). It has a fun bar/game place with darts, ping pong etc etc. Has a great Karaoke place on the corner of an intersection with rooms that have windows facing it so you can perform for the people going past. Its also got a good amount of bright lights and other people around doing stuff that make just wandering with a drink in hand enjoyable.
It also has ample convenience stores around/inbetween the above locations for stocking up on strong zero or your preferred drink.

So start the night with a drink or two from your preferred convenience store. Then get Ramen for dinner and pick up another drink or two after. Go play some darts/ping pong while getting a couple drinks. convenience store a couple more drinks and finish with a solid several hours of karaoke.

Eh, I'm pretty sure the plethora of green tea drinks alone make up more than 1% of Japan's beverage industry.

yeah you know what? I'm wrong. Japanese businesses don't care at all about certificates and degrees and qualifications. You probably won't even have much competition trying to get a job in Japan. It's not a popular place for English teachers. Best of luck to you.
>>
I'm sure this question gets asked a fair amount, but just how racist is rural Japan anyways?

I'm already going to Tokyo for a jump, and am just vaguely flirting with the idea of renting a place further out in the countryside with an appropriate mixture of culture and amenities.
I know very little Japanese which is why I won't actually be doing it, but I'm curious if they're as "racist" and "intolerant" as I keep hearing.
Even they were a bit racist, I'm also not a bitch, so I probably wouldn't care.
Just wondering if "not being a bitch" would theoretically be enough.
>>
>>1962867
The worst that would happen is no one interacting with you beyond most needed amounts. Maybe some stares.
They aren't particularly 'racist' per se, more like they have a nation that is still 99% ethnically homogenous, have a society thats pretty all in on 'stay in line' and 'follow the rules'.
So outsiders/foreigners just dont fit well with what they are all used to and thats spooky. Plus we are often a bit louder, dont know/follow the 'rules' that they do (especially the more social based '"rules").
If you had japanese skills and were just fairly chill/friendly im sure there would be far more that would be fine with you. Though even then you'd be more like a novelty and someone to practice english on.
>>
>>1962758
I've also stayed in Ikebukuro (or just a station away from it) and I also think it's one of the better spots to stay in. I think the area has a great balance of having all things you expect from a big city in terms of shopping and nightlife but not being super busy. And if you can't find what you want in the area, you're only a short trip away from places like Shibuya and Shinjuku. Finding affordable lodging in the area is a lot easier too.

Racist and intolerant to westerners means they won't bend over backwards to please you and will be butthurt if you don't follow their social rules.
>>
>>1962888
Yeah exactly, it was busy enough to have all the things you could want, without being to clusterfuck levels of shinjuku/shibuya (which is good at its own times mind you).
Decent access to most areas was a nice bonus too, which is made stronger by essence of being close to shinjuku.

>>1962938
It of course also depends on where in tokyo you'll spend a lot of time (like Ueno would be good if you are gonna be shopping it up at akihabara for example or going out to comiket).
But yeah was quite a good area and i think i'd happily use it as a base again. Good for shinjuku/shibuya, good for nakano (for other weeb stuff) and not terrible for going to akihabara.
Given what shinjuku gives access to, being only a few stops away from it is a strong point.
>>
>>1963483
>>1962867
Pretty much this. You will be stared at every second you are there, but they do that more out of "what is this weird creature" and less of "I hate this white monkey". At difference from the cities, they will take no shit and will happily do whatever it needs to be done to get you kicked out if you start being a douche. Respect the place and its traditions and you will have the best Japan experience.
>>
>>1962867
nobody cares about you. They'll more be curious as to why you're in the middle of bumblefuck nowhere. probably 75% of the racism towards (white) expats is the result of them (the expat) not understanding and their perception of the situation.

I don't see why the Olympics have to be cancelled, all they have to do is limit the crowds and space people out. I think the Japanese government needs it to happen at this point.
>>
>>1963654
>limit the crowds
Japan has spent so much money preparing for the Olympics that limiting the crowds is itself a disaster. The government wants big crowds. The hotels want big crowds. The restaurants want big crowds. Because everyone was expecting to have a giant boom in sales. The idea of the Olympics still happening but sales being down is a nightmare scenario for every big and small business in Japan.

That's why the government is actually playing with the idea of rescheduling the Tokyo Olympics to 2032. After Paris and Los Angeles.

You need snow for it to be a Yuki Onna, so in the winter. Go to North Japan. Find a cave/temple that is abandon.

Just a reminder that the olympics hasnt made a country money in fucking ages. Hence why basically no one is competing for the next several.
And what money it does make is largely based on TV rights at the time, then future tourism. So they would still get TV rights money and japan is already one of the biggest (and fastest growing) tourist spots in the world, so realistically how much more could the olympics have boosted that?

Japan had got the olympics before the current massive increase in tourism. But well once you've spent a few billion and confirmed you are holding it, you can't really back out.
So sure they'd rather it go ahead as normal for that extra couple billion dollars. But large crowds vs not large crowds aint gonna break the bank.
Just Covid itself is a much larger thorn in their side, as like i said torusim was already fucking huge, so they'd be losing more on that normal lost torusim this last year than they will from the olympics.

That said, im sure it may be the final nail in the coffin for some smaller restaurants and places if the big crowds dont come and give them a nice little boost.
Which sucks a lot, so overall im still hoping they get a fairly normal olympics (i dont think there is ANY chance of full crowds, but maybe still substantial ones)

Basic science my dude.

>>1964347
Some quick googling i did showed it cost them at least $9billion euro and brought it 9.9billion euro (but even that article said it seemed like they were including things that were questionably attributed to the olympics). So thats a slight win indeed, but doesnt count the general infrastructure costs associated with the olympics, only direct olympic costs. And apparently they get in the several $billions themselves. Almost like how blockbuster movies have a budget of $250million but have to make like $450million to break even because of advertising and bullshit.
Plus by all accounts, UKs tourist numbers had been on the decline back when they bid for the olympics and in the time before it (hence why they wanted the olympics). So in the long run have certainly made money. But that was one of my main points, Tourism to japan is at its highest ever, is one of the biggest destinations in the world and is already growing by insane amounts every year, so there isn't a whole lot the olympics can do to boost that when its already 'the place to go'.

I'd seen a not shitty news website full deep dive discussion into this before, i wish i could still find, as now im just curious about each olympics's costs and long term benefit

'Only' done two trips myself, early/mid November to early/mid December in 2017 and 2018.
First one was in country for around 21 days, second time was 30 days. Uni holidays, so no work commitments.

I did visit some places both times, such as Nara, Miyajima, Bunny island and Oarai.
Because there was easily enough at those places for 2 visits (Nara and Miyajima). Or they were just so enjoyable that they deserved another visit (Bunny island, Oarai).

Then visits multiple times to areas of major cities of course because they have lots of food places, or bars, arcades etc etc.

Second trip i added 5 nights in sendai, 2 nights in kawaguchiko, 2 nights in Hongu and 1 night while riding the shimanami kaido.
So the tokyo-osaka-Hiroshima belt of my second trip actually went for about the same time as first trip. Then just with extra places for my 9 extra days.

Next time i plan to do a similar near 2.5-3 weeks for the classic 3 big cities, then spend a week going to hokkaido And maybe some main island areas further north of sendai along the way.
I can imagine if i was more time restricted, to say the classic work 2 weeks off, i would be spending less time in osaka and tokyo to make sure i get new stuff in though.

How about you? just curious about others ideas? or do you have a shortish window of holiday and are wondering whether you should try new things vs re-experiencing your previous memories?

Is there anyone here who knows a good bit about graduate school in Japan or can point me in the direction of where I can get some info. Here’s my predicament:
I have a bachelor’s in a social science and I’ve spent the last couple years working at my university as a research then a generic staff analyst. I’m interested in going to grad school in Japan but I have 2 big problems. 1 is that I don’t really want to continue in my current field and it doesn’t exactly lend itself directly to anything else but I don’t know how flexible grad programs are there. 2 is that my undergrad grades are very poor. In the US, they don’t really care because they want your money but I suspect they might care in Japan. If anyone can help, it would be much appreciated.

Yeah, but that’s the case in every Western city or city that the West had influence on at least.
