Question time: what's the one thing you haven't done/place you haven't been in Japan that's at the top of your list

For me it's probably Hokkaido. I've only been on Honshu so there's still plenty to do on the other islands. Noboribetsu in particular looks very cool to visit.

I never went to the more rural areas when I was in Japan, I did go to Kyoto for two days when I visited Osaka for a week to be fair.. but you know I'm talking about something like a small town in the Ibaraki prefecture as an example. I'm still researching though since I don't know shit about anything outside of Tokyo and Kyoto, but I want to walk around in the rural areas for a few days and maybe find a comfy path in the forest aswell who knows.

Open for suggestions if anyone has any

The big public universities are pretty good though.
Sure if you have the option to go to harvard or stanford studying in japan is pretty retarded, but if you're choosing between a good japanese uni and some random public university you might as well go for the japanese one.
Especially with howneasy it is for foreigners to get into tokyo or kyoto university, both of which rank very well for non american unis.

At this point, I think coming back will be like never having been there before, so I'd pretty much like to see everything again on top of all the other shit I want to see and experience.

I'm gonna get a working holiday visa and probably spend 6 months travelling, and another 6 looking for a job to sponsor me before my one year visa is up, so I can stay in Japan as long as possible. I know Japanese to a N3 level, so I'm not jumping in completely blind. Where the fuck do I start planning this entire thing? I want to cycle through the prefectures like Chris did, but stopping every month or so to settle down temporarily and take a part-time job. Some advice and guides to point me in the right direction would be extremely helpful, onegai.

You will never be a real Japanese. You have no epicanthic folds, you have no clan, you have no kotatsu. You are a Caucasian man twisted by anime and manga into a crude mockery of Amaterasu’s perfection.
All the “sugoi” you get is three-faced and half-hearted. Behind your back people politely discuss you. Your sempai are moderately off-put and wary of you, your “kohai” smile shyly at your slightly overweight appearance behind closed shoji.
Japanese are somewhat taken aback by you. Thousands of years of evolution have allowed Japanese to sniff out gaijin with incredible efficiency. Even hafus who “pass” look uncanny and unnatural to a Yamato. Your bone structure is a dead giveaway. And even if you manage to get a drunk salaryman home with you, he’ll politely excuse himself the second he gets a whiff of your bread maker.
You will never be genki. You wrench out a mispronounced “ohayo gozaimasu” every single morning and tell yourself it’s going to be daijobu, but deep inside you feel the kanashimi creeping up like a knotweed, ready to crush you under the Daruma doll.
Eventually it’ll be too much to bear – you’ll go to Aokigahara, tie a noose, put it around your neck, and plunge into the cold abyss. A Niconico idol will find you, heartbroken but relieved that they no longer have to live with the unpleasant body odor and loudness. They’ll bury you with a headstone marked with your Romaji name, and every passerby for the rest of eternity will know a white man is buried there. Your body will decay and go back to the dust, and all that will remain of your legacy is a skeleton that is unmistakably Caucasoid

Bumping for interest. I have only a few years before going over the WHV age limit (max age 30 for UK), so as soon as I can I'm applying. I will ask my current employer to let me work fully remote 3 days a week (software dev) with a 9 hour time difference, if they say no I plan on quitting and going anyway, where, having a tenuous grasp on basic Japanese and having never held a part time job in any hospitality or service industry due to a sheltered professional lifestyle as a WFH developer, I will likely be unable to secure any part time employment and end up spending my entire life savings eking out a depressing existence thousands of miles away from my friends and family, before returning back to the UK for a life of drudgery and toil before my death. It's gonna be great.
>>
>>2174459
Well that sucks, but I doubt there'd even be a remote chance of opening up when even one prefecture still has "quasi measures" (lel, not even actual measures.... just quasi....)
We had another daily record of infections where I live, but the government eased some restrictions over the weekend and our experts are all saying omicron is mild. We only have six in intensive care in the capital area.
What's going on in Japan man... they really REALLY don't want anybody in.
>>
>>2174464
There's absolutely nothing wrong with them and they taste good if seasoned well and not overcooked, but they're very much "I just got home from work and I need to make some food for the family and kids fast!" tier food. Not something I'd ever order eating out.
They're good with gravy, soft onions and fried mushrooms and some potatoes on the side. Good hearty weekday meal.

Grad school is easier to get into for everyone because most japs just do a bachelor, not like some european countries where everyone gets a masters.
Foreigners also have an easier time because japanese unis are desperate to improve theor international rankings, which means international students and publishing in english.
The only hard thing is gettint the mext scholarship which is very competitive, but yearly tuition is around 5k so you don't necessarily need it.

Courses in english are pretty rare, unless you're doing cs or engeneering.
They also have some programs about sustainability and stuff, plus kyotou even has some humanities in english.
Often you're also supposed to write professors in the department you want to get into and basically just ask them to accept you into their labs/ their seminars.
Just look up todai and kyotou's pages about graduate degrees for more info.

>>2174659
It's not cheap, but Temple university Japan campus is another option. Its the same a temple in Philadelphia, which is pretty middle of the road. You get the same degree as someone from Philadelphia gets. You also get a japanese degree on top of that.

What you can actually study is limited, but I had a good time there.

> Courses in english are pretty rare, unless you're doing cs or engeneering.

Yeah, that’s not true. Like many countries, the unis in Japan are desperate to get in on the foreign student money gravy train. Unfortunately for them, the number of foreign students who can take uni level classes is near zero so they’ve had to adapt. Lots of schools have made departments like “Global Business Studies,” “Global Studies,” “Intercultural Learning” etc. You get the idea.

Well tip for you. Im a brit who has been living here a few years. Started with language school for two(never would have got to a decent level without, i was deluded before doing it). I spent roughly 18-20k a year GBP here not including tuition, and lived pretty decently even with a GF. Lived alone, newe fuchu, about 50 min train ride to Shinjuku. It was about £300 a month for a comfy 20m room with bathroom and kitchen and separate toilet. Another £60 or so a month on utilities. Fed myself on 1500 yen a day happily. Spent about 10k yen a weekend on restaurants etc. Cost about £900 a month for it all which was also including my gym membership. Then i spent an average of 3-5k GBP a year just travelling or skiiing or eating more fancy here and there or buying clothes etc etc.

It’s possible to live frugally on about 12k but it would be quite boring and pretty pointless to even be here.

How much cash would I need for a good time in Japan?
Context: Ausfag with ASD that just became a wizard.

Thinking of planning a trip around お正月2023; would ideally be a mix of touristy shit by day, soaplands by night, but I have no real idea about costs. Ballpark, I'm assuming after airfares I'd want about 10k AUD?
And yeah I could just fuck a hooker at home, but I live in the one Australian state where prostitution is still illegal- so either way I'm booking a flight to get laid and I might as well fly somewhere that isn't a cultural wasteland and see some shit.

One hour at a gaijin friendly soapland was 300-500 eurobucks before corona, depending on the popularity of the girl. They kick you out once you cum, unless you pay an extra fee and extend the „session“.
There are also girls you can call to your hotelroom, the prices are the same but you‘re not allowed to do vaginal.

Japan is extremely expensive for prostitution, you‘re better off going somewhere else. Most soaplands also still ban gaijin from entering. Corona fucked everything up even further, including prices.

South Australia.
Aside from shaky reports of full-service massage parlors and places frequented by streetwalkers I really can't find anything in this shithole. I'd be as likely to get an STI as I am to get caught in a raid, or both, and that's if I can even get an erection to whatever feral bogan sow is selling herself.

I just want to walk into a nice establishment and pick from a menu; I don't know why this has to be so hard.

>>2174851
Price and selection aside that seems fine; the reason I'm a wizard is because I hate people
so getting booted out after cumming is probably what I'd prefer. I was thinking of finding a hotel room somewhere convenient and spending a week or two hitting up different establishments near kabukicho, but fucking hell not at that price. And I'll confess to not having investigated this idea so far, so while the "gaijin friendly" stuff doesn't come as a surprise it's not something I'd considered. Well shit. No point then, if I can only afford like 3 encounters max.

does getting fit really improve your chances of hooking up with a good looking girl here?

i feel like japanese girls are more intimidated by really strong guys than turned on by it, much more different to western girls.

Personal preference.
Other than Japan (setting aside sex tourism) I'd have an interest in visiting Italy, France, Germany, Japan, possibly China; and maybe Spain, Mexico, Ireland, Russia, New Zealand. Thailand is just in the list of countries that holds no appeal whatsoever, and I find their faces kinda weird looking. Yeah that's rich coming from a virgin, I know, but I can't help what my brain doesn't find attractive.
It's not just about simple benis in vagena, it's about doing it with an escort I find pretty, and that apparently comes with a massive surcharge.
>>
>>2174948
>does getting fit really improve your chances of hooking up with a good looking girl here?
It does everywhere in the world. Being even slightly overweight will severely damage your game.
The beauty ideal of a man is very different, but being fit is a universal appeal.
The majority of their men are fairly small and very slim, so you will stand out as very masculine and strong if you're not fat, work out just a little and take care of yourself/looks.
But even more than looks. Simple gentleman shit like opening the door for somebody works like a fucking charm there.
Don't be afraid to be masculine and take charge, but don't be an autistic moron about it either.
The girls who would be intimated by a fit man are exactly just that. girls.
Some of the women there go crazy for men with hair on their chests and beard and a bit of muscle and shit like that.

Aren't japanese women some of the most money-grubbing, and I think literally the most prolific cheaters?
I'm not a retard waiting for some kinda tradcath momwife to fall into my hands, but if you're dating interracially and want a stable partner I think the usual advice is to stay far away from Japan.

And that's not to tar them all with the same brush, people are people not stereotypes, but Japan has a culture than emphasises working to the point of exhaustion (dealing with a weak economy, heightened precarity, and unforseen levels of labour fungibility) so they binge on sex and alcohol and escapism to deal with the frustration.
>>
>>2174956
Yeah, it's generalising a lot, but stereotypes don't really come out of nowhere.
There's definitely a lot of status / money grubbing, but I wouldn't say that's a Japanese thing entirely. A lot of Asian countries have a very superficial view on relationships / partners when it comes to money and shit like that.
I will say in that regard though, that it's kinda expected in a society where they strive so hard to reach those positions, educations, jobs and stuff like that.
I haven't read into the cheating bit myself since I'm appalled by it, but their society is apparently very notorious for cheating a lot without much care.

All that being said, "just" avoid people like that. It's pretty easy to spot people who are like that or at least recognise that behavior quickly so you can move on. There's lots of normal and great people there. Don't waste your time with money grubbers and gaijin hunters and shit like that.

No society is perfect, and as many amazing things Japan and it's people have to offer, they sure also have a ton of negative aspects too which they don't question because "it's just the way it is" even if it's appalling.
>>
>>2174953

I can't say I've gone all over the world and fucked all kinds of girls, but I don't understand the mindset of these creepy ass sex tourists who go to somewhere like Thailand and fuck some 3/10 girl who looks like a monkey.

I'd much rather go to Japan, pay the 90k yen fee and fuck some 9/10 girl at Don Juan. I'm sure for the same amount of money I could go to Thailand and fuck 100 girls, but they all look like fucking donkeys.

Also don't fucking go to Europe for sex tourism. It's stupidly expensive and the girls are either ugly skanks, or sex trafficked from some eastern European country and I can't really condone that shit (and if you fall for this trap once you're done you'll be greeted by 8 Romanian dudes waiting to beat you to death unless you empty your bank account into their pockets).

>>2174956

Speaking as someone who is moderately wealthy I'm just gonna say women everywhere are money grubbing fuckers.
I quickly had to learn to avoid showing or mentioning I had money to anyone because the moment you do their entire attitude towards you changes. Like being super nice to me means I'm going to give you any fucking money.

Speaking from my experience, Japanese women are no more or less money grubbers than western women. Though I have never tried to marry one so many they have different expectations for marriage (I hear from a very reliable source you can straight up marry any woman in Japan by giving her a Lexus).
>>
Traveling across the world the so you can pay dumb amounts of money to fuck hookers.

what's been your experience with Japan unis?
>>
>>2174995

Hate to break it to you, but people have sex. It's a part of life and a lot of people enjoy it.
It's no different than going to Japan to say... Eat Japanese food. It's not vital you do this, you're doing it because you want to and it's something you'll enjoy. Gluttony, much like lust is one of the seven deadly sins. If you're off to Japan to experience Japanese food you're also a degenerate.

I'm guessing you're either American or raised in a country that has a large Christian influence and you've been taught that sex is a naughty thing. It's not. Get over it.

didn't they have like one confirmed omicron death? actually absurd that the country is as locked down as it is, but I also heard the official protocol is still for everyone with positive tests to quarantine at a hospital. They're literally still treating it like early 2020 when we knew nothing about the virus
>>
>>2175018
Japans political system only cares about what their citizens perception is. The issue is the Japanese people go off what the government says, so they feed themselves into a loop. Japanese are not impacted for the most part since there is only a tourist travel closure (business related stuff still happens). Domestically they can do whatever. The Japanese government will open the county when the majority of other countries open up, then the Japanese people will be "if the government thinks it is the time, I am okay with that".

The "End of February omicron thing" won't actually be the end and it will extend to June. Then If other countries do not change it will extend again.
>>
>>2175077
Yeah, I don't think the end of February sounds plausible at all given how they've been throughout the whole pandemic.
Mid summer is maybe even optimistic for tourists. Early fall is more likely unless they have a change of heart/minds before.
Like I said, in Denmark where I'm from, we're almost having daily records of new infected because of Omicron, but the hospitalisation rates are going down and there's only a small handful in intensive care.
Our government and experts are saying something about they expect around half of our population to have caught covid by early spring here and something something herd immunity something something.

Put it this way,
I'm not having sex under any circumstances without paying for it (some people are just unfuckable, due to mental illness or whatever [autism in my case] and no amount of social experience or dating will ever connect me with someone or make me a viable partner). And I'm never having kids because of that, so no point saving for a house or anything.

What should I be spending my money on? Saving towards retirement, when I'll be just as alone except now also too old?
No really, I'm genuinely asking this. I just figure, while I can still get an erection I might as well get some fuck on.

>>2175135
Just to clarify, I'm a virgin.
If you're talking about the sex tourism thing, that's a whole new experience to me. On top of which, man, I don't even like alcohol- even odds I enjoy porking my first foreign escort, or (probably more likely) I can't get an erection/cum and start tearing-up because it's just another basic adult milestone I'm not capable of reaching like a normal person.
>>
>>2174977

You know you can pay a couple 100 dollars and find a literal 9/10 woman in bangkok right? Better looking than anything you will find in japan unless you pay around half a million yen for it. For 100k yen you’ll get a 5/10 whore with a weird face in japan too. The average japanese whore is not good looking. The very good looking ones cost at least half a million yen and are private.

Just cause most people pay ugly monkeys for 10$ in Thailand doesnt mean its the only option there lol. You can get world class for way lower prices there.
>>
>>2175181
I need you to show us what you consider to be a 9/10 Thai woman.
Not to be derogatory or derisive but I think the old adage, "there's no accounting for taste" applies here- and that's my loss to be honest, but the Thai women I've seen I just do not find attractive.
>>
People in this thread pay for sex instead of being paid for sex. You do not even need a 10 inch cock, you can be between 5.8-8inches. Just be able to cum multiple times and have some charisma.
>>
kind of a weird question but im really curious. im hopefully going to japan as soon as it reopens and i've seen a lot of very high rise buildings being constructed in recent videos.

what are the laws and general attitudes towards rooftopping (getting onto roofs of tall buildings). e.g. in london it's completely legal as long as you leave when asked, in new york nobody really gives a shit even though it's technically illegal. what will happen in tokyo?

You're a shady gaijin in a place you aren't supposed to be, and cops could detain you for an indefinite amount of time without any kind of court order. Go figure.
>>
>>2175236
Yes, most crimes are strict in Japan. Japan operates on guilty until proven innocent. Then they have over a 90% conviction rate. Since you are a foreigner, you would probably just get deported.
>>
>>2175241
looked it up and the punishment for climbing rainbow bridge is only 10 days in jail and a small fine so it's not that bad if being caught on a construction site or abandoned building is similar. also seems police aren't hostile at all which is nice (hong kong security literally beat me once lol)
>>2175242
punishments seem relatively lenient though
>>
>>2175220

People will definitely call the police if they see someone let alone a gaijin doing that, legal or not. Japanese call the police any time they see someone do something slightly unusual
>>
>>2175245

What those people generally say and whether they're virgins too or not, I don't really care- that dude in particular professed to have some understanding of a greater calling for people like me though, so despite him articulating his post like a troll I gave him the benefit of the doubt and replied sincerely to offer an opportunity for him to weigh in (and was totally ignored).

But you're right. And even if you weren't, nothing here matters except what I think and want to do: so to hell with it, I'm going to pencil-in a holiday in Japan for next year as a 31st birthday present to myself. I'm going to sit in an onsen, climb Mt Fuji, ride the shinkansen, and find a cute whore to fuck. Hell, I might hit up the gym between now and then since I have lost a lot of weight recently; if get a tan, learn some pidgin nihongo and download Tinder fuck knows what happens- I might not even have to pay for the privilege.

>9/10 Thai
You either have shit taste or have gaijin eye or both, because most Thai women are just fucking ugly as hell, especially the ones working in prostitution. I'm in full agreeance with >>2174977 regarding paying more for Japanese girls because of their looks than cheap whores in Thailand. If you actually like Thai facial features, then I guess you're in luck, because you don't have to spend much. But if you mainly like East Asian features, and particularly Japanese features, then you can't really settle for less.

Hong Kong wasn't bad when I was there, and it overall was cheaper than Japan and South Korea, although I think a lot of those girls are (trafficked) from mainland China. There were also some Eastern European and maybe a few SEA or Japanese girls in those big buildings that house prostitutes like the infamous Fuji building. I didn't try the more private escorts in Hong Kong, and those are probably just as pricey as Japan. The setup in those buildings and having to knock on all those locked doors and going up and down the stairs was a huge hassle, though. The setup at Tobita Shinchi in Osaka and being able to see all the girls with ease is my ideal setup.

Last time I was in Japan I fucked this girl. Not gonna lie, this photo is edited, but the real thing didn't look too different. More petite and her skin wasn't as perfect as in this picture. But it cost me 85k yen.

If I am paying for sex, I'm not going to settle for anything less than this. And honestly, Thailand doesn't have girls that look this good from what I have seen.

>>2175228
Done it in Korea

Ended up just sitting on my ass for 10months while slowly improving my Korean, found a 19 year old gf and banged her for half a year but she cheated on me so I dropped and just came home early.

If you want to spend a year just chilling out I can recommend it, but if you're out of work half way through you'll have trouble signing a long term contract for anything legit professional. So your options are usually just bar work or a hostel or something.

Japs are generally willing to do stuff that costs extra in other countries i.e. gfe, dfk, BB everything. And for 85k he probably paid for an hour of that service.

It was 2 hours actually. Not gonna lie though, I sure as shit didn't last that long but that is the major downside of being a gaijin using hookers in Japan. There is always a gaijin tax and often you got to pay for the longer courses, which are 90-120 minutes.

But I consider it money well spent. Picture related is what a "top" tier hooker in the town I live in looks like to put things into perspective, and an hour with her would cost the equivalent of 32k yen.

How are people so insecure over how others spend their money? Food, Hotels, Hookers, etc. Not everyone wants to be a minimalist never-bathes backpacker who brings one set of clothes.

I wouldn't visit a sex worker anywhere else in the world, but I tend to visit a brothel each time I am in Japan, never regretted it so far.

My best encounter was pic related, a 19 years old student, paid 75k+10k gaijin tax for 110 mins. She freshly started working at a store which doesn't allow gaijins so I chatted her up months before my trip, and she asked the manager to sneak me in. They gave me a lift from my nearest station, let me in when they made sure no other guests could see me, and made me wait in a secondary waiting room.

She was tall skinnyfat with huge marshmallow-like boobas, the only flaws that I could see were her acne and the fact that her hair was too dry, I would rate her looks 8/10. If she had more money for proper skin and hair care she could be even more pretty. Because we were writing so long I asked her if she was okay with anal. She was reluctant at first, but I managed to convince her to give me her anal virginity.

We exchanged line and talk from time to time, would be nice to see her again, but she stopped working in the sex industry after a year to save up for her tuition.

I know your a weeb who feels above thailand despite being a degenerate simply because you think you can tell chinese and Japanese people apart. You cant. Just style.
A 9/10 is beautiful no matter where they are from. And plenty of the best looking thais generally have east asian features. You can get passed the ugly monkey for 10$ looks because you are ignorant and have a weeb fetish. Nobody wants to fuck those 10$ sea whores other than weirdos. You’ll get the same tier of ugly nip for $400 in Tokyo, you just cant tell.

Top tier escorts in bangkok only, and leas than half what you’ll pay in Japan for a top tier escort(like 1-2million yen). Almost identical in looks.

Obviously there are some racial differences even if the most beautiful thai women skew towards east asian looks, but you cannot defend yourself from being considered a Japan obsessed faggot if you are arguing paying 2 million for a top tier nip is “worth it” over 300,000 yen or less for a top tier 9/10 world class looking whore in thailand.

I dont like nig nog women but at those prices id even rather screw a 10/10 nigger than pay that simpy weeb proce for a nip

These retards will actually waste countless time and who knows how much money trying to get into jap only brothels, attempting to bribe, being scammed, getting ripped off and given the old switcharoo with a 40 year old hag that normally works from the street. Just because they watch censored porn 7 times a week.
>>
>>2175944

Yes I'm a weeb and no I'm not going to apologize for it. I also happen to have more money than I can spend. I'm still not going to Thailand and I'm still not going to fuck some ape. Simple as.

Are you some kind of Thailand pimp or something because man you seem awfully insistent on getting people to go to Thailand.

Nice thread about Japan, pieces of shit.

>>2175958

No investment in it. I just dislike weebs who always look down on degenerates who pay whores real value in thailand instead of being scammed in Japn. I live here in Japan and know so many people who came here to fuck around, nasty STD ridden dweebs hitting whores or ugly chicks on apps and every time i tell them to hit up thailand if its their thing when they inevitably complain about cash they get mega offended as if they are above that.
I mean honestly maybe its harder to explain a stay in Thailand as a male kn your own to senpai back home? Fair. Dont tell them then.

You get just as ugly old Japanese women or ugly ass younger ones equal to the 10-50$ thai hookers, you weebs just cant tell or judge them properly, and pay hundreds of dollars instead. Its cringe to shit on losers doing it in thailand, at least they have pride not to get scammed.

Anyway this is just my opinion. Believe it or not i dont engage in whoring, just lived in japan long enough to know about it and taken enough trips and vacations to thailand to see

You would enjoy "Beno Lifts". This reminds me, I really need to acquire a set of elevator fire service keys. You can go to all sorts of forbidden floors that way.

Damn, was the sex good at least? Do you have a pic of her?

>>2175852
in every city there are like set buildings to get onto that you know are basically always unlocked, have no alarms, etc and the 'protocol' is just to go onto those buildings and ignore the rest.

like in london the strata tower for example was seen as 'impossible', same with 22 bishopsgate but i've been at the top of both.

a guy i know actually base jumped from the strata tower.

>>2176050
>Beno Lifts
oh i know of him. i actually personally know and have done climbs with another pretty big london rooftop youtuber.

and yeah, the service keys are great but honestly just learn to pick and keep a set of cheap picks on you (including tubular ones). if you're about to be caught toss them somewhere.

Kek, also got food poisoning with my best friend when we visited in 2018. The few restaurants were overcrowded and refused people, so we ended up in a family restaurant. Bad idea.
The temples, emperor's house and nature were beautiful, though.

My friends got food poisoning from chicken sashima.

Advice to everyone: If you really want to consume raw chicken, do it at a restaurant that specializes chicken sashima, and not a restaurant that sells chicken sashima on the side.

Why the fuck would you willingly want to eat raw chicken?
If there's one thing you mustn't eat raw, it's chicken.

How is raw chicken worse than raw fish? Honest question, I've gotten sick from cooked fish before and I consider it the riskiest food to have raw, yet I've never had a problem with fish sashimi

Mainly those bacterias : Campylobacter, Salmonella, Clostridium perfringens, who will fuck you up good.
In my country, it's the number one thing you don't eat raw, you don't even give it to animals.

>>2176278
Meat from fish for example contains fewer pathogens (bacteria and shit) that can actually infect humans. Raw fish is not even REMOTELY as dangerous to eat as raw chicken, that's just something you have concluded in your own brain because you got sick once. I can't remember the exact reason, but eating raw chicken in Japan is less risky because its bred differently for their specific dishes.. but even then it's considered more risky than raw fish or beef, and Japan's own minister of health issued a warning for restaurants to still cook the chicken enough to kill bacteria or for people to at least eat it less often
>>
>>2176282
>Are japs this fucking retarded they think Chinese can't read traditional characters?

Many Chinese think that everything in foreign lands should be in Chinese to suit their needs. I am not even memeing it's just a fact.

T. Chinese, know many mainlanders.

>>2176298

Unless the fish has been mishandled during preparation, your chance of getting bacterial infection is actually fairly low. Your main health concern is weird parasites growing in your intestine or muscle fiber.

Whereas chickens, due to the absolutely filthy way they are raised, it is impossible for the slaughterhouse to not have the meat come in contact with something (skin, shit, etc.), and you can't expect disinfection to work 100% all the time. I don't know if chicken farm in Japan is any different though.

Back to the story, one of my friends was in a hospital for about 7 days and returned to an US hospital for further treatment.

Looks like they're sticking to the autistic decision to curb infections instead of hospitalizations. They literally won't open their doors to tourists until a vaccine that can prevent infections is introduced.

Meanwhile the rest of the civilized world is accepting that COVID is endemic. Wonder how many years it'll take Japan to accept that reality as well

I always hear foreigners complaining about being carded all the time but I'm a tall bearded slightly tan white dude and I've yet to be stopped once in 2+ years in Tokyo

I've actually asked policemen help a few times when I was new and they've always been nothing but polite, going above and beyond what was asked of them
the meme of Japanese people just being fake nice is so wrong in my experience

do you have some websites to recommend?

I'm done waiting for my autistic ass to magically be able or be lucky enough to find itsel a girlfriend when I'm steps away from wizard, so I might as well do it like this

used tinder a bit and there's a lot of girls putting their twitter/line and when you message them there they give you the whole explanation. the ones I've seen average around 25k, but they all have very similar and kinda shady explanations so it's probably a scam or worse
hence I might go for a website or an establishment, leaning on the first because of the flexibility
although I'm not wealthy, so 30k max all included is my limit
an anon on gif recommended global141, there seem to be a few girls there, but no reviews

I'm just done with it, lately had one girl that seemed like it was possibly shaping into a relationship, and then got cucked while I was away from the country on winter break (strong quotes on cucked)
if this is how I'm ever getting sex then so be it, but I'm anheroing myself before I become a 30yo virgin
>>
>>2176527
I'm not, although one person who complains about it a lot isn't either, and they're white passing

although they are also the type who gives no fucks about rules, not paying any taxes or health insurance, is all fuck you authority and then complains about discrimination
So yeah I guess it's just them and the people complaining online are similar lmao

>>2176534
I guess you're right
I'm always polite and quiet, sometimes overly so
although I've never whipped out the baka gaijin, that must have been funny for them lol
