The old general was fine. This stupid Halloween themed one sucks
Dear journal, it's the year 2067, and surprisingly after more than 40 years news of South Korea finally opening up its border has broke. Unfortunately, at the same time Japan has announced that their entry bad is permanent. I'm now 87 years old, I sit here in my nursing home, with my health rapidly declini-
>>2117444I truly hope that this is the case. In fact, I hope tourism dies out worldwide. No more tourism.
>>2117363the state of emergency was not in place for most of 2020, retard. its unrelated to the border closure
Perhaps a long shot, but does anyone know any good 24-hour gyms in Shibuya?I can only find Gold's Gym in Harajuku and Anytime Fitness in Hiroo or Naka-Meguro. I find it weird that Shibuya wouldn't have one, considering it's probably the closest that Tokyo has to a place that stays alive for 24 hours.

People who have managed to make it over multiple times, do you prefer going to entirely new parts of the country or trying to explore more of areas you have already been to?

I got approached by the Buddhist cult members againThey always walk around in groups and ask for your contact info, then for you to pray with them. I've never done it, but i'm tempted just to see where they take you.
>>2117514Ran into some of them in Odawara. They seem to travel in pairs. Always a somewhat QT and an uggo. I let curiosity get the better of me when they said they'd like for me to go with them and pray at their temple. My thought process was "Ok, neat, might get to see a cool temple n' shit." We arrived at an office-looking building. At that point, I noped out of there.
>>2117478Been three times, I generally will make Tokyo the "hub" area at the beginning and ending of my trip and use the time in the middle to explore other cities and prefectures. My first visit I went to just Tokyo and Nagoya, my second trip I expanded that to Kyoto, and my last trip I added Osaka as well. So I generally will do three-four days in Tokyo when I arrive, then use the next week to travel on the Shinkansen via the JR Pass to different prefectures and cities, and then get back to Tokyo for my last week.

http://populargusts.blogspot.com/https://daehanmindecline.com/Really enjoyed reading these comfy photography/urbex/urbanism blogs based around Seoul/Korea, feels like I've learnt a lot from them. Any anons know of any similar blogs but relating to Tokyo/Japan?
I ran across a gajin focused soapland concierge service: https://soapland-guide.com/service/Do you guys think there is a catch besides the high price, which can arguably be explained with the concierge service itself?
>>2117478some places have totally different feels in different seasons. Seek out festivals and seasonal events, although those have been a thing of the past since corona. >>2117460if you can't find a gym on google maps it probably doesn't exist. Gold's is the best in Japan, but I quit because of their retarded corona policies. The only reason to ever go to a gym is for the social aspect. If the rules forbid you to talk to friends, then you might as well save your money and just buy a treadmill or a weight bench for your apartment.
>>2117558>50k yen/hourHoly shit that is expensive. Can get JAV tier prostitutes in western countries for less than that.
>>2117577Last time I was in Japan I found trying to get day-passes for gyms to be a huge expensive hassle since the few places I looked at their account/membership processes aren't really geared to one-off people.
>>2117577>The only reason to ever go to a gym is for the social aspect. If the rules forbid you to talk to friends, then you might as well save your money and just buy a treadmill or a weight bench for your apartment.Kek'd, what the fuck did I just read? Going to the gym for the social aspect? You go to the gym to workout, not to be social with friends.. jesus fuck. You are 100% one of those Planet Fitness people or just making shit up. Yes, a home gym is obviously easier and much cheaper in the long term, but finding storage for it all especially if you live in a small apartment is hard.. not to mention being forced to leave your apartment and hit the gym can help boost motivation for a lot of people, it helps them feel good because they don't want to be stuck inside their apartment all day.Either way, that was the dumbest post I have seen in a long time
Have any anons walked the/part of the nakasendo or the kumano kodo trails?I really want to do something like that next time i go but im a bit intimidated by the fact that the hike is several days long and you basically have to get whatever accomodation you can find when you reach the townIs it worth the hassle (multiple busses, shipping luggage, etc)?
>>2117485stay strong fren, we will all nut inside jp qts again one day
>>2117558way too expensive, on account of adding a middle manI'll do my own research and hear what other whoremongers have to say to make my determinations
Seems like Japan is going back to an isolationist country. Why don't you have a staycation and get with western women
>>2117939>Have any anons walked part of the nakasendoI walked the part from Magome to Tsumago as a day trip from Nagoya. It was quite nice, and I'd definitely recommend it.I have no advice on accommodations, however, because I went out from my hotel in Nagoya in the morning and came back to my hotel in Nagoya in the evening. You could probably incorporate it into a trip from Nagoya to Nagano or something, though.
I sincerely hope I can go back soon. There's still so much I want to see.
>>2117930Excuse me. Are you retarded? Do you know how expensive gym memberships in Japan are? A basic membership will cost you at least $1,000 annually. Doesn't matter if it's at Gold's or some little smelly gym filled with geriatrics. Why on earth would anyone spend $1,000 every year at a gym when you can buy your own equipment for half that price and be done with it? To socialize. If working out and saving money is the modus operandi and you don't care about meeting people, a gym membership in Japan is a waste of money. I got a membership at Gold's so I could meet people my age and practice Japanese and not be a complete shut in on my days off. If I just wanted to exercise I could do that at home without gym staff constantly patrolling the floor for corona infractions. Finding storage? I've got an entire tatami room that I use for storage. Plenty of room for weights in there. Why are you even so offended? Do you get upset when you see people at the gym talking to each other? Are you a little gym troll?
>>2117978A tatami room where you can put a treadmill and a weight bench along with weights without it being in the way? Sure. Also, are we just pretending here that the vast majority of people doesn't live in a 1K or 1DK apartment? We're talking about Japan here, probably Tokyo.. apartments are small. Yes memberships are expensive as hell, but last time I was in Tokyo I paid daily at a local gym, went there 3 days a week and it came out to be roughly $45 a month which is not bad. I'm not offended or upset, I'm just shocked that there's people crying about membership fees at the Starbucks of gyms, while saying they only go there to be have fun and talk with friends.. just go to the park and run around with your friends, that's probably free
>>2118024You fucking tell him. I go the gym to get juicy, not talk to other men. What a homo.
>>2117952I'm ugly and too cheap to spend the $ on a prostitute so I'm not getting with anyone, but the urban areas of Japan are better than those in America in pretty much every way. America has some great nature, but that's pretty much it & much of that nature is commercialized and overly crowded at this point.
>>2117952>japan is back to being pureUmmm bssed
>>2117577>The only reason to ever go to a gym is for the social aspect.Have you considered the fact that some people want to go to a gym to work out? Crazy but it's more common than you think.
>>2117978>Why on earth would anyone spend $1,000 every year at a gym when you can buy your own equipment for half that priceoh yeah everyone knows you can buy a power rack, a bench, a set of barbells and weights, a pullup bar and a treadmill for less than $500 and be able to fit all that in your 1LDKretard
>>2117939I did Tsumago > Magome trail (plus a train to Narai-juku) last week. It's absolutely worth it. You can crack it out in a day by staying somewhere near Nagoya station, take the limited express into Gifu, and end the day in Matsumoto (where you can go on to do Kamikochi)
>>2118078Sorry you lived in a closet. You sure made me look like an idiot because I didn't consider that you had subhuman living conditions. >roughly $45 a monthThat's bullshit. Gyms are not that cheap in Japan. I'm beginning you doubt you ever lived here.>just go to the park and run around with your friendsYou know when you move to a new country, you don't get to bring friends. You have to make new friends. Do you know how to make friends? Real friends. Not just discord tranny friends. Do you have friends? Have you ever been to Japan?>>2118078Yeah, as a matter of fact. You can buy most of that for less than $500 on amazon. But let's be real here: people who use a power rack and barbells don't also hit the treadmill. I've never once seen a power lifter doing pull ups or cardio. So why don't you cut the bullshit and quit being such a faggot?
Uh, no comfy pics like previous /japgen/?
>>2118156I was in Asakusa last night. Suprisingly quiet with no international tourism around
This will probably get no good answers but idk where else to talk about it anyway.Im just a normal guy in Japan for a few years, maybe longer, probably not. But i have noticed there are a lot of strange people here in terms of foreigners. Plenty of cool people but many not so. Idk if it is partly because I just paid less attention at home or im not used to expat communities.For example look at reddit japan expat subs. What the fuck is wrong with them? First there is the insane hostile and down right petty gatekeeping of living and thriving in Japan(its here too but less) which is extremely weird to me. Then there is just this unbelievable level of snobbishness in general from expats here but especially on Reddit. I get a lot of them are middle class wagies desperate to show signs of wealth or affluence but i am simply just not used to seeing such a high concentration of people like this in a community who are generally all from different places etc.There is also the downright bitchy and catty ways of foreigners in Japan, and again, reading the reddit subs for some reason gives a good impression of foreigners in Japan. Its like a mega competition where they seem to treat things as a zero sum game when its not. Ie, someone speaking better Japanese is BAD for me, someone trying to improve is BAD for me, someone not doing what I do is bad, someone doing what I do is a threat, etc etc. Its so fucking strange. I only ever saw women behave like this before I came to Japan.In terms of foreigners here i can go weeks without seeing many but as soon as I go to Ebisu, Nakameguro, Daikayama etc i see a crazy number which surprises me. Why are they all only congregating here? It seems related to the whole “must prove ky middle class level” parade to me which brings me back to the start nicely anyway.Other than these types, its hipster weirdos and LGBT weirdos(why so many LGBT love and live here btw?). Its seriously fucking hard to find normal cool people here.
And on 4chan people do this in a different way which is more tolerable at least even if its just “thats no REAAAALL JAPAN” or “you can learn Japanese in 16 minutes by talking to hobos outside izakaiya in the inaka, formal learning is pointless” types, but at least not the same kind of pretentious.US military fags get no real mention because they are just military fags who act like that everywhere they are stationed anyway.
>>2118181because of competition? theres not enough space in japan for every stupid fucking weeb/yellow fever "decent" joe in the country, and even more so theres not enough women to go around. duh
>>2118181Whoa bro. Are you saying the west is not sending its "best and brightest" to live in Japan? Sounds pretty racist to me. You see an English teacher, I see a doctor, you see another English teacher, I see an engineer, you see an overweight pink haired LGBT weeb, I see a politician. In all seriousness I don't know what reddit is up to. I do know the Daily Japanese Threads here on 4chan were just a bunch of language nerds telling everyone to quit trying. Maybe they're sick of dealing with weirdos and weebs constantly asking about cat cafes and dating tips. Maybe they're just trying to protect their claim. Maybe they're just assholes. /tv/ has film snobs, /lit/ has literature snobs, /trv/ has Japan snobs.
>>2118191I know what you are trying to say but i’ll add that even the weebs i have seen here I actually prefer them often. They keep to themselves, buy anime, do their weeby things and go home. How harmless. Honestly.Is this what all “expat” communities in Asia are like or just Japan tho? In terms of my earlier post.
>live in low populated prefecture with no restrictions or warnings>everything is completely fucking empty for months>suddenly everything is back to life october 2ndmaybe it's the american in me but holy shit imagine actually fucking listening to the government (even when it doesn't apply to our prefecture) and to this degree wew lad
>>2118218I know. It pisses me off because my girlfriend is one of them. Literally nothing changed all year but now she suddenly wants to go out and do stuff after doing nothing all year because "the government said it's ok."
>>2117577>The only reason to ever go to a gym is for the social aspectlmao that's not even a reddit moment, that's a tumblr moment or some shit
>>2118163heh I went there just a couple of days ago. it is nice indeed now. but I guess it'll get more crowded soon because people are definitely going out more
>>2118181if you think everyone else is the problem, you're the problem. fix your issues before criticizing others.
>>2118153>people who use a power rack and barbells don't also hit the treadmill
>>2118181I came to Japan to speak and talk to Japanese people. >food analogy but you don't order a burger at a mexican restaurant, right?I'm never rude or anything to other foreigners, I'll say hello, wave, etc,But hanging out with them has literally zero benefits for me whatsoever. Even if I'm alone I I'm speaking to employees, listening to conversations, etc.I think there are a lot of people that have this perspective but go about it in a far more rude way.It's honestly the opposite mentality that absolutely baffles me. Met some foreigners when I first arrived who showed me around and all they do is hang out with other foreigners. I asked them for a list of reccomended restaurants and they gave me a list of places with foreign staff / people who speak english.Like holy shit the regret they're going to have for wasting their entire time in a foreign country down the line is massive.As for the LGBT shit I'll never fucking understand it. Some of them are surprised when they learn Japan doesn't tolerate it and it's illegal. Bonus points for when they spew shit about the birthrate then support faggot shitnail hammer blah>>2118192The english teachers are the fucking worst, and I say this as one. When people asked me about my job I used to say 'English Teacher' but it really fucking fast became 'English Teacher... but I'm looking for employment beyond that, etc. etc.'If you're meming about the "best and the brightest" it's the fucking ESL south east asians. They're getting hired for these dead-end positions and they can't even hold a fucking basic conversation in English. No wonder this position gets a bad reputation
>>2118181>>2118348Just avoid foreigners then anon...
>>2118181I had heard Japan was the worst country to act like any of that since they're so work oriented. Getting embarrassed publicly is suicide-level guilt.Yeah, the only gatekeepers I know from burgerland are the camos and the blues. They are Nazi-level assholes to everyone over anything. Not all of them are like that, but a lot of them really are.>>2118348Are the LGBTs and the weebs all coming from burgerland, though? That seems to be a California thing and something with the water they drink. You'll notice its prevalence in areas with high levels of Netherlands-inspired drug cultivation and drug culture. There's a ton of tranny beaners there as well because lbgt is so accepting to everyone's identities besides average straight people.
>>2118348>As for the LGBT shit I'll never fucking understand it. Some of them are surprised when they learn Japan doesn't tolerate it and it's illegal.What? They have a big gay district/scene in Shinjuku.
>>2118348>I used to say 'English Teacher' but it really fucking fast became 'English Teacher... but I'm looking for employment beyond that, etc. etc.'lmao 90% of English teachers describe themselves as "freelancers", "photographers", "writers", "bloggers", "part time models", etc. you ain't fooling anyone with that bullshit
>>2118181>reddit, reddit, redditYou sound like the fag, bro
>>2118156Sure, though most of my photos are from 2018.
>>2118348I mean i did the same. Came to learn japanese. Experience Japan etc. But i live here, and to be honest, its nice to have people you can relate to sometimes. Its nice to be able to speak english and have people who get your humour due to similar culture. I dont need it all the time and some obviously do this way too far. They are usually ones who cant speak Japanese of course. So i have to say i dont quite get how you operate not needing to do this ever. Maybe im not as introverted as you? Im no extrovert however.I dont take it to extremes, just hang around with friends sometimes, and we dont look for the most foreigner filled places either just go wherever is convenient and nice.Maybe thats why i suddenly see hundreds of foreigners when I got to Ebisu/nakameguro etc. These are ones who dont speak much japanese and just want to go where they know other foreigners are? Snd it happens to be these ultra trendy places because well most expats here like that are middle class social strivers.Anyway im rambling. Just seems hard to meet middle of the ground foreigners. But maybe, its the same in places like Hong Kong or SG. Ultra snobboish or just ultra weird.
>>2118361Ftw an actual freelance/contact based software developerGuess im an English teacher too now
>>2118381I think it depends on the city or prefecture, too. There's a lot of expats in Tokyo that are generally just weirdo social outcasts who clearly don't belong anywhere and just fled to Japan because they don't fit in their home countries and they have this weird idea that they'll find a place to "fit in" by living in Tokyo, almost every American and Canadian expat I met in Tokyo was like this, but the ones I met in Nagoya were chill, most were only there for work and generally seemed pretty normal, lots of Australian chads that seemed like cool guys.
>>2118389I doubt they're doing it to fit in. They're doing it to fulfill their weird sexual weeb fantasies in some dark alley in Tokyo with yakuza trannies and furry costumes.
>>2118181You run into these people because those are the circles you’re in.Be a skilled expat and you’ll run into far more well adjusted expats.
>>2117344>the entire cabinet quit>snap election on Oct 31stoh no no looks like Kishida is already getting bullied by the Jap establishment
>>2118402Who are you talking about?Because im talking about these skilled people working at places like Nomura, Google, IB or whatever. They are snobbish as fuck and have that reddit mentality and gatekeeping of “my japan” even more while treating it all as some zero sum game for some reason. They exclusively hang around places like ebisu and roppongi etc
>>2117558I would unironically rather take a shinkansen, enjoy kansai and still have enough left for a quicki in the shinchi for how much they're charging jesus . This is pretty much only for people who have to work in Tokyo or Fukuoka or some shit
>>2118153You didn't even reply to me you mong. Did you even read what I said though? Monthly gym fees are really expensive in Japan, I completely agree with you on that, but there's local gyms (basically sport centers) you can go to where you pay 200-500 yen (depending on the place) each time you go rather than paying a monthly membership fee, the gyms are obviously much smaller with less options but they have the basic shit and it's much cheaper. Just do some scouting first to make sure they don't have retarded rules or one rack of weights.>Discord tranny>People who use a power rack and barbells don't also hit the treadmill>Only reason to hit the gyms is for the social aspectYeah.. I'm pretty sure you're the larper here
>>2118348This post actually explains a good deal.The reason I don't find any other expats who think the way I do is because those guys are also trying to hang out with Japanese people rather than expats.The only problem is those few times you still do want to hang out with someone who speaks your native language, you're stuck with either having to hop on the LGBT train because they're the only ones available, or just giving up.
>>2118348>Japan doesn't tolerate it and it's illegalIs this the dedicated thread where everyone spout random bullshit?

>>2118547Gays not welcome.
>>2118522Gays existing doens't mean they are accepted. gays always existed and everybody always thought they were disgusting AIDS ridden degenerates, it's only during the last 2 decades that (western)governments are pushing acceptance through propaganda.

>>2118743Such place doesn't exist
>>2118181>Other than these types, its hipster weirdos and LGBT weirdos(why so many LGBT love and live hereMy guess is these are people who moved abroad because they didn't want to be around family that disapproves of their lifestyle.As far as middle class neighborhoods, it's hard to get on in working class areas as a foreigner I think. Plus these are most people who have "professional" jobs and a middle class background and don't want to leave that.
>>2118564Gay is perfect legal in Japan they just all have browbeating mothers that nag "why you not married yet? Why no wife?" and getting gaymarried isn't legally recognized. There's no religion based stigma against gay fucking either.
>>2118765Thats why i asked if its just an expat thing in asia in general?I would he considered “middle class” myself but i dont really like to parade around making sure people know it. Dont care if someone assumes im a broke English teacher or not.
>>2118769Possibly so yeah. People that have "family ties" may not be comfortable with living so far from home.
>>2118773And people might want to make it known that they don't think of themselves as the same kind of immigrant that cleans your hotel room.
>>2118775But if you arent then why would you go to great lengths to prove otherwise? I dont get it. Its like that back home in England too with upper middle class people but since living in Japan i have seen it so concentrated and in extreme ways among expats.I know im not cleaning toilets, and i know i have enough surplus of money. Why the fuck do i care if someone else doesnt in one context? If i end up meeting them often or they become part of my life they know.My GF thought i was broke for like a couple years till it was relevant to bring up I wasnt but sue still doesnt know the full extent of what I do.
>>2118767I hate this. Everyone probably thinks I'm gay. I never see my family anyways and haven't in a few years. We live too far apart. I'm not gay, though. I literally can't find decent women to talk to or date. They're all super fat here (average female burger waist is 40 inches apparently). I like Japan for many reasons, but I love Asian women in general because they aren't ugly fat slobs.I know, "just go to Japan and use American Tinder to find beautiful Japanese speaking women." Of course. That's why Tinder was created. For one country to date, but somehow also other countries who don't speak the same language to somehow want to use it as well. Not like they don't have their own apps in their own language.
>>2118781You will never get a JP girlfriend. You write like you have Asperger's. I'm pretty sure you are as unpleasant to be around as it's reading this drivel.
>>2118785Nope, I'm great. I don't have problems finding Asians or latinas here. It's just the burger females.
>>2118725I blame the gymcel.
>>2118786I believe you man. Don't worry about it. Why would a coping anonymous dude say lies on the internet anyways?
>>2118799I can prove it but last time I linked to a collage of me with various burgers, a few beans, and two nigs all having sex in various positions I got banned for 4 days.I look a lot like this guy. Plus it's 4chan. Ok anon, prove it! But how? It's all anonymous. You wouldn't believe me, anyway.I'm in my 30s and I've already had 100 something partners, been engaged, and had about 15 LTRs. I started at 15. I just don't want to cuck away at the factory for some fat chick in burgerland for the rest of my life. I've always wanted to travel and I've already been everywhere in burgerstan besides Alaska and Hawaii, as well as parts of Mexico. I've been planning on retiring in SEA since I was in my early 20s, and would rather go full coomer and impregnate all of Asia than live in hyper-inflated burglerland where I'm stringed along my entire life because my wages barely pay my overhead.

>>2118786if this is true you dont need to go to the otherside of the world then. in your previous post you complain about fat burger women being all there is around you, "i need azn gf" and then next post say you find plenty where you are. quit lyin lol. you write like an insufferable retard anyways
>>2118926Shut the fuck up already, you insufferable narcissist retard. This isn't /r9k/ or /soc/, this is /trv/, and you're in a thread about Japan. Nobody cares about your body count, and given how you write and present yourself, women are absolutely not the problem here. Fuck off.
>>2118940No, fuck you. I responded to their questions and comments.
>>2118508>>2118513>>2118519>>2118531>>2118532>>2118564The original claim was that homosexuality is illegal in Japan. Anon points out that it's not. A huge wave of cope ensues.I hung out with a gay Japanese guy for a night back in 2019 - he hated Koreans so much that his friends got him a sarcastic 'I <3 KOREA' shirt as a joke. Funny lad and a credit to my holiday.
>>2118778People crave validation and flaunting your wealth to try impressing others is just one way that people fulfill that desire in capitalist countries. Total conjecture on my part as someone who has never lived in the country, but I imagine for a lot of expats around the world (especially those in massive cities like Tokyo, London, NYC, or wherever else) people generally don't have any long term friends or family to interact with so they try flashing $ to impress others into thinking that they're cool.
>>2119001>The original claim was that homosexuality is illegal in Japan>If one anon makes a retarded claim this invalidates everything afterNo, you are even more retarded.Being gay is not illegal in most civilized countries that doesn't mean that it socially acceptable and people won't be disgusted.I honestly don't give a fuck if you like it in the ass until you start openly being a faggot like right now, then it is my civic duty to bully you so that you realize you should keep your fetishes for yourself or the relevant threads/boards.ITT fetish is asian women fuck off

For the anons that were in Japan during covid or there now how is it? It looks fucking boring with everything shut, and even cooming would get boring when you eventually find a gf.Still looking forward to visiting again when the borders open
>>2118698I got to Japan to fuck cute white chicks with yellow fever
>travelers with Pfizer, Moderna, or AstraZeneca can get in with a 10 day quarantine now (probably still only residents/citizens I guess)>i got the J&J oneDo you think they'll change this by the time they get rid of the 10-day quarantine or should I go get a Pfizer booster shot in the meantime?
>>2119309just wait until something actually happens
>>2119309Just relax bro. Tensing your ass up waiting for the exact moment it opens up will not help. They are old and stubborn faggots. They aren't opening up shit until they feel like it especially with their government constantly failing right now.
>>2119300It was pretty great. No lockdowns were ever enforced. The whole pandemic I've been going to different prefectures, renting hotel rooms for less than $100 a night, eating at restaurants, etc. I think they shut down my gym for a month back in 2020 but that ended quickly. So nothing is shut down. Even bars that are supposed to be closed after 8 pm (because of the emergency) were skirting the law and staying open until midnight. All the tourists traps like Sensoji have been open but quiet and there's never been a better time to visit them than right now. Everyone who's been staying home and not traveling and not eating out has no one to blame but themselves for their exile.
>>2119300>It looks fucking boring with everything shutNo lockdowns where I am. Nice not having foreign tourists swarming about, although pretty much every festival was cancelled.
>>2119174Because your mom's basement is anywhere but Japan. Cope
>>2119348>>2119358>covid great because no touristsSigns that you are larping
>>2119348>Even bars that are supposed to be closed after 8 pm (because of the emergency) were skirting the law and staying open until midnightThey weren't skirting anything you fucking idiot, it was never a law. It was a "polite request".
>>2119042Sorry about my antagonistic tone earlier - I was up too late at night.I don't know how old you are, anon, but the gay civil rights and pride movement has ramped up in the (relative) blink of an eye. What you said would ring true if we were talking about just 20 years ago, but things are way different now all across the civilized world. As for Japan:>Tokyo Rainbow Pride has been held annually since 2012, with attendance increasing every year. A 2015 opinion poll found that a majority of Japanese supported the legalisation of same-sex marriage. Further opinion polls conducted over the following years have found high levels of support for same-sex marriage among the Japanese public, most notably the younger generation. (78%) 
>>2119052It's amusing since one anon complained about redditors doing it few posts before it really started.
Just took the Jew poison so that I can travel out of Japan soon. I fully expect the Japanese government to require vaccination for quarantine exemptions etc.
>>2119392No. They were skirting laws. Restaurants and izakayas were able to sign up for a covid relief program where the government gives them money. In return they have to agree to not sell alcohol or close at a certain time. Restaurants have been agreeing to this, collecting government money, then staying open anyway and selling beer long into the night. So why don't you shut the fuck up and stop pretending that you're an expert on shit you know nothing about? I'm sick and tired of constantly correcting faggots like you.
>>2119539I'm sure that you personally verified that these particular places signed up for the relief program. Apologies, I was not aware that I was talking to an expert like yourself. *tips fedora*
>>2118232You don't have a girlfriend lmao
>>2118389I was one of those guys at one point. Before I had the chance to embarrass myself abroad, I started chatting with Japanese people online, and almost instantly all the mystique around Japan being a somehow "different" society where you would fit in more faded away. It is kind of ironic and sad really, underneath that veil of exoticism is a society that matches your homeland in every way that matters, and the guys that are most popular and liked at home would also be liked in Japan, provided they could speak the language.Yeah, it's pretty sad. A lot of these guys likely struggle with mental illness or something and need therapy. It's just a bummer to see people with real problems misdirecting their efforts in this way, even if they are easy to make fun of.
any news on japan getting rid of the quarantine for nationals and perment residences? if I am fully vaccinated why i need to quarantine fro 10 days ? something aint right.

How much should I budget for 3-3.5 weeks of Japan in April-May with 2 people? Looking to do a roundtrip from Tokyo to Kyoto/Osaka and back, with some small stops along the way. What are realistic expenses for hotels and food, if we want to stay on the more affordable side of things?
>>2119819thanks, will start looking for a developer job
>>2119853that's nothing compared to the cast at Tokyo Disney
I consider myself a semi-expert in Japan and Japanese culture (have seen over 5 anime, plus all Ghibly movies and Alice in Borderland) so I obviously want to come visit (maybe even stay)I had a few questions:1. I speak English and don’t want to learn Japanese, is it still easy to live there?2. Is culture like in anime (eg almost everyone very lovely and positive and hard working) also fashion 3. What easy jobs can I get thereThank you, I’ll be ignoring troll responses
>>2120041You're not even funny
>>2120041This is very funny. I recommend you work as an ALT until your 40s and then complain about the racist Japanese not giving you better jobs.
>>2120057What is ALT?
holy fucking earthquake
>>2119858covid as a means of control is such a retarded theory. It's literally caused the exact opposite of globalism. Countries like Japan which have a natural propensity for exclusion and nationalist rhetoric will literally close everything down, why would some cuck globalist want that? Don't they want the exact opposite?

I WILL go back to Japan at some point. Nothing can stop me.

>>2119977Before I answer I'm going to tell you I personally haven't been to Japan, but got advice from quite a few people that have been and am currently budgeting myself for a 3 week trip.Budget all depends on what you want to do and the best way to figure it out is to figure out roughly your cost of airfare there and back (let's say $1000), look up the cost of everything you want to do in Japan, look up your total estimated lodgings, budgeting how much you want to spend on souvenirs (if applicable) and put it in a spreadsheet. It also helps to put the current amount you have saved for Japan in said spreadsheet so you know damn well where you're at.For lodging if you're going the affordable route I'd go with hostels. It costs roughly $30-$80 a night depending on if you do a dorm or private room and the number of people, but personally I would look up hostelworld for japan for more accurate pricing around the areas you're staying in. In Tokyo for example, K's House in Ueno for a Private room is around $72 while a shared dorm is $29. As for food, it really depends. Are you the type of person that can survive on just konbini chicken and beer? Going out mostly? Somewhere in between? I'll probably get shit for this (especially since I haven't been to Japan), but Paolo has a decent video on how much you'll spend on food in Japan in 1 day, so I would look at that. Me personally for 3 weeks I'd budget about $1200 on food. Again do research and overestimate your spendings. It's much better to spend less than you thought than to be without money.
>>2120142>I'd budget about $1200 on foodAre you going to eat each day at a Michelin restaurant? Food isn't that expensive in Japan.
>>2120167Not that anon but you're probably better off overbudgeting if you can. Also if you drink a lot it can really add up.
>>2120167It's a pretty good estimate if you plan on eating well or drinking. One night of drinking can set you back whole day or two of food. If he has extra, he can still keep it at the end or splurge if he feels like it.
>>2119977>budget question for basic bitch situation Have you tried using fucking Google?
>>2120167you can totally end up spending $400 a week/$60 a day on food if you're accounting for the occasional $50 splurg at a good steakhouse and all the extra little bits of food or water you might find yourself buying as you travelPlus if you end up poorfagging it week 1 or 2 you can put that saved money towards really nice experiences later in the trip
Last time I was in Japan I just spent less than $10 a day on conbini food
>>2120246Not everyone is thrifty like you. I spent easily $30-40 on food a day because I went into random restaurants and ordered whatever I felt like and got random desserts or things from stalls because that's how I prefer to do things.
>>2120248$10/meal average seems like a reasonable budget.
>>2120181>>2120187Always spent 150/200$ max per week on food every time I went to Japan counting restaurants, food stalls, conbini stuff and drinking machines. Even last time when I went to the Furusato Matsuri and bought ton of food I still didn't spend more than 700$ for three weeks.
What's gonna be your strategy when they announce to open the border?Buy your flight ticket and book hotel asap? I'm afraid that everyone does this and it's gonna be complete full of Chinese and American tourists that never behave and ruin my trip there.
>>2120291u should be buying tickets now. if they ever announce thell open the border, airlines and hotels will triple the price to make up for lost revenue.
>>2120291I mean.. depends on when that is, I want to go around summer time my next trip so nothing if it's not around that date
>>2120248Yeah that's pretty much what I do aswell and my daily food bill is usually around $40. My first time in Tokyo though when I was fairly broke, I calculated that I could only have a roughly $15 daily food budget and I actually managed that well thanks to konbini food.. those fucking onigiris with salmon is something. I still eat two of them for breakfast when I go there
>>2120291Damn where is that?
>>2120138Looks like Takayama or a road from Izumo to Kyoto. Can't be sure
>>2120394Looks like any average river town in japan desu.
Had a flight booked for April 2020 then canceled the trip and got flight credit. We rebooked for late March 2021 since that was the expiration for the flight credit, but I’m getting nervous. Deciding if we should we go ahead and book AirBnbs, JR, etc or wait it out a little longer. Really don’t want to eat the $1k for the plane ticket.
>>2120435Late March 2022*
>>2120394Literally any onsen town, retard. What the fuck is with the amount of stupid questions lately on these threads? Are you also gonna ask for an itinerary for Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto? Are you also gonna ask for "wat budget"?

i'm planning to take a 5 day trip if the borders open soon, how long should i stay in tokyo? is that enough time to comfortably go somewhere else? i'm sure there's plenty to do in tokyo, but i don't want to be cooped up in the city the whole time.

>>2117461I agree, vaccine passports are garbage.
>>2120353I eat onigiri for breakfast all the time when I'm there too. Konbini food isn't too bad over there but I would recommend sticking to restaurants if money was not an issue. Lots of good food to be had.

>>2120838I'm all for the metric system and Celsius makes a lot of sense for cooking, but... why do we exactly need to know when water boils if talking about the weather? Freezing point is useful to know if there will be snow, but Celsius is too narrow otherwise. The difference between 21 and 22C is negligible in weather, yet very noticeable in thermostats, and the weather tops out at like 50C where it's pretty much unlivable for humans. Neither Celsius nor Fahrenheit are perfect for describing weather, but at least Fahrenheit has more sensible steps.
>>2120853>fahrenheit has more sensible stepsIs this a cope?
>>2120838This. You can imagine what kind of stupid, inbred, retarded autismo created the imperial system
Anyone have experience with begging in Japan that can offer tips/tricks? I’ll be flying in with $400~ at the most and I’ll be mostly be fine foodwise because of those meme honour system food shops where I can just get free stuff if I have my back to the cameras but transport is where I’ll need cash because the barriers are manned by faggot japs who never let you go. I mean alternatively I could get a bike from some granny or loser teen but I’d prefer people to hand their shit over willingly so I don’t have to escalate things.
Fuck off beggar. Japan has no place for people like you. If you are poor, stay at home or find a job instead of traveling, baka.
>Gatekeeping travel because you need to earn le moneyWear your mask cuck
>>2121080Imagine calling people faggots or losers when you're planning on going to a country just to beg to get around. Can you please go to Thailand instead, so the chance of you getting killed by locals increases dramatically?
When is the best time to see the autumn trees? I was planning on going to Kyoto and some surrounding places this year.I looked up autumn foliage viewing and pic related came up. Isn't late November awfully late for viewing? Or is it like this every year?
>Bro just get a high paying job and be a nice Christian boy and go on ski trips with friends and don’t have sex until marriage and get the jab, don’t ever ever think of asking anyone for anything I go where I want cuck, I’m being generous by asking for the money first.
>>2121069Not really, I live in a developed country, so not an American. Still, 0F being criminally cold, 50F being average and 100F being hot is closer to what I'd call a more natural scale for weather. Cooking with F though, fuck that, I do need to know when water freezes and boils.
>>2120806Where should I go in Japan? I heard they had "sanctuaries" or something like that?
>>2121080I know someone who had the same idea and he ended up spending 3 months in a Japanese prison.
>>2121080fucking pieces of shit like you are why gaijin are despisedget a job
>>2121092>Isn't late November awfully late for viewing? Or is it like this every year?A lot of Japan is much warmer than you might think. I live on Kyushu and we don't get anywhere near fall temperatures until later October/early November. Still have highs around 30 C now.
>>2121080lmao, imagine go to another country just to be a poor beggar and ask for begging advice, just do us all a favor kys already loser, your life is already done.

>>2121092I was in the Kyoto/Osaka area in December 2019 and a decent amount of the trees still had their autumn foliage. I'd imagine the last 2 weeks of November are probably prime time to go see them.
>>2121109>>2121176does this mean that I won't see *any* autumn foliage in Kyoto in October, or just that there is much more of it in late November?
>>2121180I went to Japan (2 decades ago, climate may be changing). The leaves were turning when I visited the Fuji area. It was very pretty. Some plants were still green though.
>>2121180This was middle of October, literally same time of year.
>>2121080please please please kill yourself
>>2121180October is too early. I was shocked my first fall in Tokyo when it was October and all the trees were still green. You don't get those beautiful autumn photo-ops until around mid-November. Luckily for you Japanese people are super autistic about this sort of thing and create calendars for optimal momiji viewing.https://www.jrailpass.com/blog/japan-autumn-leaves-forecast

>>2117939I walked some Kumano Kodo trails two years ago, pic related. Some of my best days in Japan were spent here, so yes I would 100% recommend it. I didn't do the whole trek tho, I stayed at Yunomine as a kind of home base, and hiked from there to Kumano Hongu Taisha among other things. There's busses driving along all the major stops so you can easily hike a trail and then take a bus back to your accomodation if you don't want the hassle of staying at a new place every time. Just go through the time tables so you know what time the last bus leaves.
What's up with all the weird old expats around Shibuya station? I was walking around Shibuya today and must have seen like 10 of them in different places.The whole area pretty much consists solely of Japanese people in their teens and 20's, and then you have these random fat balding white guys who seem to also live in the neighborhood. What the fuck is up with that?
>>2118156All you had to do was ask
>>2121408Maybe they were waiting for an escort. Or they're simply creeps.
Do the Japanese really appreciate you trying to speak the language, even if you completely fuck up? I'm scared to try out my limited Japanese when I'm there.
>>2121423most are fine with it and if they're not they'll just ignore your japanese and say that they can't speak english in english
>>2121408those guys are also in their 20s, it's just that they're fat and balding so they look 20 years older. it's the standard "Japanese culture fan" phenotype(age like fine wine btw)

>>2121425what is it with the balding? every single fucking one is balding. every one.the worst part is? I know I'm going to bald too. it's going to fucking happen. deep down I just know
Am I crazy or is every single cutesy mom and pop Italian restaurant the exact fucking same?They all have the exact same deserts, drinks, everything. Even down to the "daily" menu they all have mushroom white sauce pasta and a red sauce with fish.
>>2121745it's the same with the Indian restaurants and curry sets
>>2121734Most people who are balding were bullied for it & are social rejects so they end up clinging to whatever feel good media they can to try escaping from how real life is hopeless. t. hairlet
>>2121734because 2/3 of all men experience balding?
I hear if you buy a Japanese christmas cake a Lexus she'll pretty much agree to marriage on the spot.Can anyone confirm if this is true or not? I'm wealthy enough that I wont miss the money spent on a car and dumb enough to actually try it.Just want a japanese gf lads... Or a gf... Or even just female contact really.
>>2121420quality content. OC?
>>2121857Yep. I posted a bunch of pics last thread too. >>2121401 is also me, most of my pics are from these hikes
taken 1 hour agobut we can't let in foreigners because... muh covid
>>2121867yeah, that's what we were talking about.
>>2121868The Japanese are xenophobic, what else is new
>>2121919Well, on the bright side most people have realized that we're genetic garbage so that % should drastically drop as women refuse to have sex or have kids with us.
>>2121919>>2121921How come Americans are too stupid to use google?
>>2122020>66%Now that's the real pandemic right there
>>2122020exactly what I said
>>2121921This anon knows the truth.
When the borders eventually reopen, what do we recon pricing will be like in regards to travelling there? Price hikes? Price drops? No idea what to expect.
>>2121863Oh shit is this also near Kumano Kodo trails? These hikes look amazing
>>2121863my man. have you explored shosenkyo gorge? is it really that pretty or just a tourist trap - been debating on seeing it someday
>>2122107Yep, this (and pic related) is Yunomine. I stayed there and did a few trails in the surrounding area. Lovely place, highly recommended. The building on the far right in this pic is a tiny little restaurant run by a nice old couple, maybe even the only place to eat there. Super friendly, they gave us a bottle of sake as a gift to take with us. You can also buy a little bag of eggs there you can then boil in the nearby onsen and eat, pretty neat.>>2122199Sadly no. I'll be real the Kumano Kodo trails are some of the only ones I've done so far. I was gonna do more this year but we all know how that turned out. Hopefully I'll be able to do more next year. I'd love to go hiking around Mt. Fuji and the nearby lakes.
Ok, which one of retards went to a bar on Saturday night in Osaka to talk to your friend about dogecoin, shitcoins, and "making a lot of money?"Just want to point out that you were extremely cringe, smelled bad, and all of my friends made fun of your cringe-ass conversation when I translated it for them. To other anons, please do not use internet slang in a loud voice to attempt to impress the people surrounding you. It's extremely cringe.
>>2121921>>2122020any baldbros here actually manage to get laid?
>>2122262I had an extremely loud conversation with a Japanese model I was dating about jews and the holocaust at a restaurant once. She brought it up, though. >>2122217great photo. really cozy. did it automatically set the exposure, or did you set it? >>2122106supply and demand. I don't think there will be an immediate explosion of tourists like some people here on /trv/ are forecasting. I think the majority of would-be-travelers will still be cautious or at the very least not want to jump through covid hoops like quarantine, vaccines, and PCR tests. Once all that bullshit is gone and Fauci has committed suicide by three bullets in the back of the head, then we can expect the price hikes. In my humble opinion. >>2121868I went to Shibuya for Halloween last year. Halloween was "canceled" so there were no costumes but it was just as busy as it always is. Cancel the party but still have just as much people out drinking and shopping and going to karaoke. What a fucking farce. >>2121849Yes it's true. Have you seen those funny webms of asian guys proposing to their girlfriend with a lamborghini?
>>2122217boil eggs in an onsen and eat? okay, based. i want to imbue my food with a mineral soak now. post moar pix anon
>>2122369Thanks. I don't have any fancy cameras or anything, I just use my phone. I think that in Japan you don't need to do a lot to make your pictures look good, the scenery does all the work for you>>2122380Yeah it's nice. One evening I bought one of those instant UFO curries and added the onsen eggs, pretty decent cheap dinner.Here you can see the river with all the pipes leading the onsen water to all the different ryokans and shit. Very sulfury smell here. The square pool on the left is where you can put your eggs to boil them.
>>212203885%of all men lose at least some hair. I thought I was in the clear and had a full head of hair until around 38 when my hair loss became noticeable. But I'm in my 40s so I don't really care
Anyone have any recommendations for Hokkaido? It's usually a lot more wallet friendly of a stay but outside of winter, I'm not sure where to go.
>>2122444Well I just hope more people start shaving their heads, especially the balding guys in their 20s. I almost puke when I see guys trying to save out hair as long as possible even though they are balding, it makes them not only look much older but unhealthy as hell
>>2121576I almost quit a 80k/year QA job to do it for 2 years to do it. Luckily I found someone willing to take me on as a developer so I didn't, but if you're actively miserable in your job it isn't worth dealing with.
>>2121576I took a 40% pay cut to move to Japan, but only because it's a good position (despite the terrible salary) and I can get the fuck out whenever I want to a much better-paying job. Quitting to do JET is career suicide and fucking retarded.
>>2122217god I hope they open the borders, this looks heavenly
I'm flying out there tomorrow. I forgot how much I hated packing suitcases.
I just want to go into Japan.
>>2118271Cardio kills gains. What a DYEL thing to even ask.
>>2122744Eddie Hall does cardio.
>>2122552>>2122559What kind of jobs did you guys get in Japan, if you don't mind sharing? I hear that getting an IT job is viable, don't know if true or not
>>2122387this is super cool. i had no idea such a thing existed. this is definitely something i want to do. the scenery sure is nice but do you use a cheapo phone or a flagship phone? i assume the latter because the pics still look great
>>2122540You should try the Sapporo beer museum/tour.
>>21225401 night Tokyo2 nights Hakodate4 nights Sapporo3 nights Furano6 nights Obihiro5 nights TokyoThis was my itinerary for 2020 August but it never happened.
>>2122540>>2123014Also, there's Wakkanai and Cape Soya, the most northern point. And Shiretoko National Park and southwards thru Akan-Mashu National Park to Kushiro is awesome
>>2122540Goryokaku in Hakodate is cool
>>2122744Not according to the rock, thor, and me.
>>2122909Software development so mostly coding.
Im feeling like masks will be mandatory forever in Japan but I cant stand masks. I hate this
>>2123134they are not mandatory even now, retard.
>>2123134What is so hard about wearing a mask bigot
>>2123134All we can hope is that there won't be any more significant spikes. Maybe then local governments will finally start to relax their policies and it'll stop being social suicide to go mask-less in public.
>>2123134lol what a baby
>>2123134>he's so fat and unfit that he can't breathe
>>2123134>girl looks like a 10/10 cutie>she takes her mask offthis mask shit must end i can't get bait and switched fucking again
This thread died too quickly. Fuck you trolls
>>2123270bump limit is reached. It'll be toast in a few days and hopefully the nigger faggots who ruined it don't come back.
How to pick up girls in Japan?I am asking unironically btw.
>>2123329Just be urself lul
>>2123329Learn Jap and jap culture or go to huge tourist areas for bars and clubs and wait for gaijin hunters.
>>2120129this is nice but also looks like new hampshire
My phone reminded me that 2 years ago today I was in Nagasaki. Kyushu is so pretty it's unreal, take me back desu.
>>2123329bend down, put one hand under the crux of their knee, put your other hand against their back, and then sweep their legs up and lift with your back. While they're laughing in amazement at your brute strength and their friends are taking out their phones for a picture, run to the nearest love hotel. Works for me nine times outta ten.
>want to book a flight for next summer due to fear of flight prices raising even further>looking at switching jobs soon & don't know what my PTO policy would be like at a new jobI hate being an Amerimutt
>>2123329>be tall>have blue eyes>dye your hair blonde>learn fluent Japanese>be rich>be rippedAny 3 of these will net you an average girlfriend there with zero effort.
>>2123710Kind of in the same boat, but why Summer? Also you're probably better off just saving more money just in case flight prices do increase instead of booking and praying.
>>2124118I want to climb Fuji & go to Comiket & I can knock out both in one trip. Winter Comiket sounds less miserable, but I'm a tech douchebag who lives across the country from my family so Christmastime is the only time I get to see them.
>>2123329be a male who isn't afraid to approach a womanthat's it, you'll get a normalfag jap woman like me and many others have many times and the sex will always be "eh she's worse at sex than westies but she is an azn bitch so it was ok". if you want a subservient, submissive, shy, awkward, socially retarded and anime watching video game playing has a lot of weird fetishes classic japanese woman, you'll need to have both charisma and weeb knowledge which is almost impossible as they are mutually exclusive.
