ーCurrent status on the Miyajima Floating Torii Gateー
Under construction. Consequently, it's not worth visiting Miyajima.

ーInfo on Prositutionー
Most brothels in Japan don't allow in foreigners, and the ones that do are notoriously expensive - at least $400USD per hour. If you're mainly interested in cooming go to another country.

I just realized I can probably find a (good) job in Japan, and soon. I don't know why I was a retard about this before, thinking I had to be fluent in Japanese and that there wasn't much of a software/IT industry there. I am definitely doing this. Feels strange now thinking this may be the last year I spend living in the US.

JET brothers, we must make maximum use of the time we have before the floodgates open again. Tell every Jap women you know that tourists are infectious. Remind them of all the Jap exchange students who got murdered by gaijin (that Peruvian guy most recently). Make sure to absolutely redpill them on the dangers of the nanban barbarians.

TOKYO -- The Tokyo Medical Association proposed on May 10 that people gradually stop wearing masks outdoors as a measure against the coronavirus, especially children in the lower grades of elementary school and younger.

According to the association, there have been reports of cases of children becoming unmotivated due to their restricted lifestyles during the pandemic, or getting into fights due to communication problems because masks hide facial expressions.

Since more than 80% of the population aged 65 and older, who are considered to be at high risk of serious illness, have received the third COVID-19 booster vaccination in Tokyo, the medical group suggested that young children remove their masks when outdoors where they can practice social distancing, such as playing outside at day care, during physical education classes at school, and while taking walks, in preparation for summer, when they are more at risk of heatstroke.

So surprising, shocking, who would've thought that recognizing facial expressions was actually needed to function as normal human beings.

I'm seeing economy going for 600-800 eur ish roundtrip even in August (usually peak pricing) from my country. Used to be 450-700, so not too much difference here. Business I only take if I get offered a free or cheap upgrade so don't remember old prices.
Though I have no option for direct flights from here, maybe that makes it different?

But sky high inflation is good though, as long as salaries loosely follows, which they always do in such strong conditions. It means a reenactment of the golden conditions boomers had. Hopefully it's NOT transitory, this way interests rate will go up, thus housing will go down because no free money, I'll then contract that juicy 12% interests loan, buy the house for a cheap nominal, and over the years as inflation go down, renegotiate my loan with lower interests as they go down. Exactly what the boomers did. Zoomers these day don't yet realize how the planets are aligned in their favor.
Traveling won't be cheaper though, but oh well, in the grand scheme of things it doesn't cost much.
>>
>>2240130
>>2240133
I wonder where you guys get these prices. I‘ve never payed less than 1200€ for a roundtrip, even before the pandemic. The flights I bought for this year set me back 1300€, so there was a slight increase.
>>
>>2240130
Jesus christ. That is nearly double the price.

I might have to bite the bullet and pay up, but keep thinking I could get that sweet 1st class ticket or tons of other shit with that same money if I wait.

I bought tickets in 2019 and early 2020.
This year I bought my first tickets in January, but the flight ended up being cancelled so I refunded them. It was supposed to be a flight Berlin-Warsaw-Tokyo, because Berlin doesn‘t have direct flights to Japan. That one cost me 4600 PLN. After my flight was cancelled I booked a new connection Berlin-Vienna-Tokyo with Austrian Airlines, like I said that one cost me a little bit more than 1300€. Economy class, no special seating, or additional baggage or anything like that.
However my flights back in 2019 and 2020 were direct flights, without any legovers, as I was flying from another airport and like I said the prices were around 1200€.
They‘re all Star Alliance flights.

I used to book tickets with Finnair, for a Paris - Helsinki - Tokyo (and the wayback) for around 600-650€. With a 50min flight change in the nice HEL airport, perfect for walking a bit and taking a shit if necessary. And the flight from HEL to HND is with Japan Airlines, which is always nice.
It was my favorite route, unfortunately with closed airpsaces these days on top of doubling oil prices, it's a bit fucked up. I also had access to direct Paris-Osaka Air France flights for 690€, I intended to use that route for my next trip, but oh well.

In the car I will proceed to brag to the driver how many months of nofap I endured in order to be able to stay fully erect for the whole 3 hour session I booked. He will say something like sugoina bro, pretending to be uninterested, while deep down he is being jealous. After the session I will be told that I was one of her best sexual partners at her work. I deflect her compliment as a Japanese gentleman would, and exchange contact informations with her before leaving the establishment and head to my hotel to check in.

Coomer posters are the cancer of this general. Bunch of incels writing their headcanon fanfic and then not getting any Nip pussy once they arrive in Japan, because the language barrier puts most women off. The bedt bet they have at securing „tight Nip pussy“ is at Hub bars, where they can score washed up 40 year olds with baby bellies and extreme celullite.
I usually just ignore these 20 year olds travelling for the first time on daddy‘s money, because soon reality will hit them like a truck, but the cockiness in these pst few threads has been so second hand embarassing I wish to hide shabu in their luggage so they get a lifetime ban on ever enetering Japan again.

Well, I did write "used to book". That was when I went there before covid, before Russian airspace being closed, recession looming, fuel going up like it's the 1970s energy crisis 2.0, and inflation. When I look up now, it's like what you see on your side, at least double the price.

I'm thinking of pulling the trigger and buying tickets for this Summer. I know it's supposedly hot as fuck but Japanese Summer seems interesting with all the festivals and fireworks and all. Also I've already been there in Spring and Fall.
For people who've been there during the time would you recommend July or August? I guess Obon is in August, but it's supposedly the hottest and most humid time of the year. July is supposedly a bit cooler and there's the festival in Kyoto.

If they still want proof of vaccination in October, you think I can trick customs with a fake card? Not like they’re going to call the Walgreens down the street from my house.

>>2240842
I'm a britbong, my first ever trip to Tokyo was in July. Holy fucking shit. Going from averages of 3-8 degrees Celsius most months of the year to that shit was unreal, it's the humidity that fucks you up. However it was far less busy, for example I went to the Pokémon center in ikebukuro at 10am in July and there was only me and 4-5 other people there for like 30 minutes. I went back in September and there was a line that took over an hour of waiting to get through. That's just one notable example but yeah, the heat tends to filter everyone else except aussies and chinks I find. After my first trip I started using 30 minute timers in a sauna and steam room on a daily basis one month before flying to condition myself to cope with the summer there
>>
>>2240842
I'd go in July if I had to go during the summer again. I was there for a month in August a few years ago and the climate was so bad it pretty much ruined the entire trip for me.
If you're used to hot/humid weather, then it probably won't matter if you go either month. If you're like me and die in that type of weather, then absolutely pick the cooler of the two.

>>2240849
You really think it's a good idea to try and trick customs?
>>
>>2240842
I'd say go for it under regular circumstances, but for 2022 I'd say go later for two reasons:
1. masks everywhere in hot humid weather
2. events like festivals still being limited in significant ways
>>
>>2240853
>You really think it's a good idea to try and trick customs?
It's a victimless crime and thanks to the CDC you cannot really get caught.
>>
>>2240860
Hm, good point. I just worry that the coof may resurge again in Autumn.
>>
>>2240862
>the coof may resurge again in autumn.
No need to worry, it's a given that it will make a comeback, the question is if the Japanese get some new programming during summer or if they will clamp down again as soon as the curves go up again.
My bet is on the latter but I'd be glad to be proven wrong.
>>
>>2240861
Still a crime and if you get caught you can wave goodbye to the idea of ever entering again.
>>
>>2240867
Do the Japanese actually check the documents or do they outsource it to the airlines like most other countries?
>Still a crime and if you get caught you can wave goodbye to the idea of ever entering again.
Absolutely, but it's probably more likely to be caught with drugs planted in your luggage or other shit that could get you into trouble at customs.

>I was there for a month in August a few years ago and the climate was so bad it pretty much ruined the entire trip for me.
my first trip to japan i landed on the 1st of september in osaka, i could walk outside for maybe an hour before my t-shirt started getting drenched in sweat. then you have to enter buildings where the AC is set to freezing, not a good time.

october is definitely my favourite month to visit.

Nothing Japan has done over the past 30 years has held up to logical scrutiny. It's all about saving face and adhering to subhuman bugman culture.
Most Japs can't point any of these countries out on a map and just see them as Eastern European or Muslim poor shitholes. So when they see them on a list of banned countries, they see that their gov is doing something and everything can continue as usual.

Yeah, the heat + humidity is insanely brutal if you live in a dryer climate. It honestly ruins the entire trip for me that I can barely walk down a street before I'm drenched in sweat... especially because I like walking around a lot and exploring shit.
>>
>>2241002
First time I went to Japan was in June for a week. It wasn't that bad. I may have just gotten lucky. It wasn't that humid and it was pretty normal "summer temperature". It was unbearable when I went later though. Kinda like Singapore, only in Singapore they don't look at you judgingly for sweating. They kinda expect you to sweat. In Japan they look at you like you're a freak even though they walk around with towels and shit.

You need to set a budget for rent and stuff like that first. Everybody will have a different estimate.
Remember you can only have a part time job on a student visa, so you'll have to take that into account. 2 years with a part time job? You're going to be on a very tight budget unless you have a side gig outside of the part time job or comfortable living very spartan.
>>
>>2241311
Language schools usually have some estimates including tuition and living costs.
Adapt those to whatever level you think you will need, try not to depend on your earnings from part time work, use that to finance leisure activities such as hobbies or travel while there.

$25k sounds enough unless you plan to go out and drink every second night

one of my acquaintances went clubbing nearly every day and ended up spending quite a sum of his parents money in just a year

at the language school you will have many others in your shoes so usually you can tag along with them after school, they should know places to hang out or eat at for reasonable prices
>>
>>2241360
I'd say you're pretty well set if you have $25k saved up and a remote job already if you just "live a normal life" so to say. You could always get a part time job just for the experience of working among Japanese people instead of being in the language school with other foreigners. And of course get a little more income.
Go for it anon!

Good luck finding a job like this now that the pandemic is ending. It might work if you're a code monkey, but applications for such jobs are far higher than the number of open job positions. For example Airbnb, one of the very, very few companies that has actually pledged to maintaing their work-from-anywhere policy, has currently 5 open code monkey positions (all based in the US, so you need to stay somewhere in that country or fuck around with VPNs), for which there have been more than 200k applications.

In my experience, almost no one actually allows “work from anywhere”. I’m not a code monkey but I got moved to fully remote 2 years ago. I’m not supposed to leave the US and I can barely leave my time zone because I’m still bound to all the meetings and such. It kind of sucks because I’m remote but I’m not remote. The biggest plus is that I have very little work to do and can slack off more with no one watching.

>>2241599
"Anywhere" is not exactly true in legal terms.
Some countries you automatically become a tax resident just by staying long enough within a year (even non-consecutively) and they require the company employing you to open an office there for tax purposes which many don't want to do, hence restricting remote workers to their HQ country.

Though of course it's possible to slide under the radar.
>>
>>2241570
Right, figures that Fuji would be popular enough for that to happen, hopefully I won't encounter congestion on other trails I have planned.
>>
>>2241613
yeah but I mean the startup won't care unless THEY get popped. How you handle your tax business is on you, just don't get popped
>>
>>2241599
Raising vc funding has nothing to do with allowing remote afaik and if they’re US based they probably don’t for tax reasons. That’s why no one does. As far as I can tell, “work from anywhere” jobs are contractors and not actually employees.
>>
>>2241621
raising VC especially in tech, ecommerce, etc tends to bring a certain type of exec who wants to hire certain types, so they offer fully remote at a higher rate than say, some Fortune 500 or small biz.

Yes, tax reasons blah blah, keep your residence address at your US home, and do your foreign lease in the name of an LLC or something, there are tons of ways to work around. Thailand + Vietnam are way more friendly to this type of long term arrangement

At 30 I just contacted the best people I’ve worked with and asked If they’d be interested in starting a consultancy company with me.

The first 3 years are a bitch, building rep and getting customers. Nowadays I just promote self guidance, if employee asks for something I make sure they get it. I mostly do interviews and sales meeting and run the numbers every now and then.

I honestly think Japan is overrated, and people mostly like Japan because its a homogenous country still holding on to a semblance of its centuries old culture, and people subliminally desire that even if they don't admit it for themselves. If Germany for example, shamelessly revived German culture and abandoned all else, people will want to visit & live in Germany.

To be fair the guy is a millionaire and one of the most recognised faces on the Internet, I can understand why the japs saying 'ah no prease stay away white piggu prease understand' pissed him off when he has a fucking house there, while visa holders were getting in no problem after a while.

theres a difference between the foreigners that visit to intentionally stick out and cause disturbances and adhere to no rules, and the ones that go to quietly and respect customs

Trust me though, you won't find a more bitter and self hating person than me, but not giving a fuck about things that aren't important is a good step to at least getting a little more calmness of mind.
Is it going to ruin your time there because some streamer lives there or went on a trip there and posted some dumb videos? I hope not. I sure as shit won't. Fuck I don't even follow or watch streamers or youtubers.
Just ignore that shit and focus on things you enjoy.
>>
>>2242413
True that. It's quite sad to see all this talent, all this potential amongst the Japanese youth wasted and sent down the drain because the old farts who run the country dont know better and try to cling to the power like the apparatchiks of the soviet union in the 80s. And they wonder why tf people dont have kids anymore.....

Now foreign workers and entrepreneurs aren't going to save Japan or anything, but they'll eventually be a part of the new cultural wave which would champion individualism and creative thinking amongst the young generations by proxy.

Do you think you can save up enough money for 2 years of language school with living expenses? If so, you can go to language school and either try to leverage your language skills or go directly to a vocational school in Japan. I can’t say I’ve encountered anyone who did this but I know it happens. There’s also IT but I don’t know enough about that to say whether it thats feasible without a degree. I think most English teaching jobs will require a degree.

Hello anons next year im planning a vacation to japan just want to ask some questions:
1: When looking for places to stay I find I'm really enjoying Kawagoe. Is there Anyone here who can provide insight into what Kawagoe is like?
2: What is the goth/punk/metal scene like in and around Tokyo?
Any recs for youtubers/vids are appreciated.
>>
>>2242741
general advice for japan is also appreciated.
>>
>>2242741
>>2242743
Is there a reason you want to stay in Kawagoe as opposed to inside Tokyo? It would be incredibly inconvenient if you were wanting to do things inside the Tokyo area.

There aren't that many good Japan YT creators, but I like Only In Japan. He has some clickbait, but he's authentic. Nobeta is ok too, but he's kind of a weirdo. Sorekara Melancholy has videos without commentary that shows him doing things. I guess the NHK Japan channel is ok too.

I like Abroad in Japan, not sure how the rest of the thread feels about him but he got me into Japan in the first place

Its almost june and still nothing about the opening. I guess doombros won
>>
>>2242854
My Japanese friends keep messaging me that they are going to open from June, and if I'm going to go there soon. I guess the goal was to be ambiguous and to make the average Japanese believe that they are open just like the rest of the world, without actually opening up the borders.
>>
>>2242741
https://youtu.be/z3dN-4OyFFE
>>
>>2242898
I guess the move will be to buy at least the plane ticket before they announce open borders and everything triples in price, right?
>>
>>2242918
Higher demand might actually push airfares down a bit, because right now the planes are flying with like half capacity and netting net losses due to oil prices
If more people fly they might drop prices a bit to incentivize people to buy tickets more
Or maybe this is just wishful thinking
>>

Abroad in japan used to be based but I hate it now. It's incredibly scripted and for a passionate 'film maker' I don't understand how Chris doesn't see how cringe it is.

At least he's banging sharla and his podcast is good

If anything, the recent war going on in Ukraine should prove how much that's not happening. Basically every country in the world is supporting the cultural and political independence of Ukraine. Countries in Europe all have unique cultures and, say what you want about the US, but it has its own unique culture that it has tried to export to many foreign countries but has failed every time. Hell, even Japan was """globalized""" after WWII with US involvement, but it quickly pushed US influence out and gained one of the most unique cultural identities in the world, as you said yourself
but yeah, "muh jewz" are really taking everything over and plan to tear down every ramenya and izakaya in Tokyo, also I hear they're going to burn down all of the shindo temples too
fucking retard /pol/fag, neck yourself
>>
>>2243087
Funny enough that you bring up the Ukraine conflict because the there's a strong correlation between globohomo and supporting the Ukraine.
The majority of countries in the UN do not give a fuck about what's happening between Russia and Ukraine, it's only North America, Europe and selected countries in East Asia.
The average Tarou in Japan wouldn't even know about the conflict if it didn't get pushed by the media, actually it would be interesting to see some street quiz asking random people about where the Ukraine is why there's a conflict.

>"muh jewz" are really taking everything over and plan to tear down every ramenya and izakaya in Tokyo, also I hear they're going to burn down all of the shindo temples too

Monitor tours from June in 15 prefectures, notably excluding Tokyo/Osaka
Individual tourists can enter from September, but with significant (and unspecified) restrictions
December will see "full" border reopening—no details about what "full" means

I still don't buy the whole tours thing, it's an organisational nightmare, even (or maybe especially) for japanese autism. Thats why we haven't heard anything new since the initial announcement. I think they're just going to open fully, or find a reason to not open at all.

Sharla apparently did a livestream and was streaming her phone screen or some shit and at the start she was in her pictures and it was full of selfies of her and Chris kissing and shit. She quickly got rid of it and carried on, when the stream was complete she made the video private on YouTube and when it was back up the first 5 mins of the stream were edited out. I found it online by accident after googling why John Daub and Chris had beef

There is actual proof of it. Chris is slamming that Canadian pig every night. She's on the abroad in japan podcast a fuckload too.

Bitch was probably thinking about Chris while she was going through her divorce

Yeah, if this is the actual plan, then the doomers. were right, Japan is not opening for a looong time. It's. almost guaranteed there's. going to be an uptick. in infections come autumn. And then they're. sure as fuck not opening in December.

>>
>>2243130
it's from Le Figaro the newspaper in France, but Le Figaro doesn't specify sources and seems to be speculation without much proof. also it at very least calls the tourism ban racist and not reciprocal

one other critical thing to note - August 1 2022 is a deadline for reciprocal travel with the EU. Germany in August of 2020 filed a complaint that they are not reciprocating visa-free requirements, and this notifies Japan every 90 days of this violation.

If by 2 years reciprocation has not resumed, the entire EU will block visa-free access to Japanese people.

I am looking up flying in to Tokyo from USA (Florida to be exact) sometime in the month of February '23. $1,200~ round trip seems to be the lowest I can get, does that seem right? Is there anything I can do to bring this down?

I am unsure because I've never flown internationally and I've only ever paid like $240 tops for domestic round trips.
Of course I'm completely assuming it will be open for tourism by then, I'm just doing preliminary research. There's an event I am looking to attend.

Prostitution is illegal in Japan so on their website they say you are renting a room in a bathhouse. There you by chance happen to meet an attractive girl who you fall in love with and agree to have consensual sex.

What happens afterwards depends on the girl and the establishment. The traditional routine is that you sit on the bed, the girl kneels in front of you to introduce herself, then she undresses you, folds your clothes nicely and puts them away. Then she gets undressed and takes you to a chair with a hole on it to wash your body. After that you both get in the bath to wash the soap off. This ritual can take up to 20 minutes so customers usually want to skip it to have more time for sex, but you have to ask for it and it is considered rude.

Some places have mattresses where they wash your body with theirs, but it's getting less and less common since it's difficult to school new staff.

So what happens if you don't qualify for the 3rd injection, for example because the 2nd one is still fresh?
For me it's not a problem because I'll just modify my documents to whatever is needed, but asking for my more honest friends.

Entering Japan is a privilege, not a right.

I don't think the EU will see it that way if they aren't going to honor their valid vaccination documents.

>So what happens if you don't qualify for the 3rd injection
then you are not eligible to enter Japan as a tourist. not sure why that is difficult to understand
>>
>>2243554

i don't get it anymore, what's supposed to happen then ?? do they intend to do small scall tours, then full scale tours and finally full opening, or do they want to go from small scale tours straight to full opening ?
>>

Because under the premise that the vaccines are working a person who recently got their second injection should be as good as a person who recently got their third injection.
I'm waiting for the Japanese to create their own vaccine for whatever sugon or ligma variant is coming up next and not accepting anything else.
>>
>>2243312
Yeah. A lot of other countries had plans and criteria laid out as a road map to when and how they'd open.
It really is pathetic at this point that they refuse to do even that.

>>2243503
Sounds like you're the problem. I'm a normal looking white dude and I had more matches than I had time for whenever I was there.

Going by this article, it's probably supposed to be just a short test run (to develop guidelines and such) before fully opening in June? At least that's my cope right now.
>>
>>2243616
It's not a cope when pretty much everywhere it is said explicitly that this is a trial/demonstration run
Doomposters just post bait from headlines only
In the age of fake news you should know better than to get baited by that

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

If they require vaccines I'm not going.

Countries have no right to force vaccinations to enter
>>
>>2243640
they do have the right. you, on the other hand, have no right to enter said countries

How is Japan during late January/early February? I'm thinking of going during my birthday week or something if that's the full open.

Fuck. I was trying to stay optimistic

If you want to stay optimistic, avoid these thread.

You can read it on their faces, the impatience. These girls want their western studs back.

At this point, grow a goddamn spine and disobey. Disobey their faggoty laws.

You're asking to get Perry'd again

The current Mathew Perry is in no condition to open Japan, unfortunately.

god I'm so fucking mad I can't focus at work today

That's why the EU of all fucking entities has to act with their bureaucratic might.

Obviously they have the power to enforce any number of b.s. requirements but that's not my point.
I'm totally fine with them requiring a negative covid test but any vax prerequisite, not just for covid, is over the line with what I'm comfortable with.
>>
>>2243863
It's like the US that still denies recently recovered people, forcing them to take unnecessary medication.
At least the Europeans with their QR codes all accept recovered people as well, giving at least a bit of legitimacy to the restrictions, although testing everybody would still be the policy of choice.

kek I remember hiking last year in Chamonix and seeing a Japanese couple.
Should kick them all out of EU as well.
