It’s finally opening boys!> Prime Minister Kishida makes announcement in New York> Domestic travel discounts will be introduced at the same time> Japan will abolish a slew of Covid border controls from Oct. 11, Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said in New York, in a move that looks set to revive the tourism industry.>Individual visitors will be allowed to enter, and Japan will reinstate visa waivers, Kishida said at a news conference Thursday in New York. The cap on daily arrivals in Japan will also be ended, he said.>Japan’s move to scrap most restrictions on foreign tourists comes as the country’s deadliest wave of the pandemic recedes. It also coincides with the yen slumping to its lowest levels against the dollar in almost a quarter of a century, making the archipelago an inexpensive, attractive destination for visitors from overseas.>Discounts for domestic travel will be introduced at the same time, Kishida added. After seeing a tourism boom before the pandemic, airlines, hotels and retailers are all seeking to regain the business they lost. > Kishida’s cautious attitude to opening up after the first waves of the pandemic won him plaudits from voters still nervous about infections, while business leaders have complained about damage to the economy and urged him to fling the doors open. >Before Covid, Japan let visitors from 68 countries and regions, including the US, stay for as long as 90 days without a visa. Visitor numbers reached a record of almost 32 million in 2019, slumping to about 246,000 last year.

>>2330906I will be slinging ropes of cum all over japanese girls faces in a matter of weeks and there is NOTHING doomcucks can do about it
young based coomer reporting in. I don't care about the weeb stuff, culture, history or any other of that cringe stuff. can someone give me a quick run down on the jap pussy?
>>2330918As a monger who's travelled to Japan 30 odd times this won't be happening for you sadly. You'll be sitting in your APA hotel with a Tenga egg stretched over your cock and that's about it.
>>2330931do you have any tips for finding girls in japan anon
>>2330966Yeah just go pay 40 bucks and go to a pink salon and fill some 35 year old Japs mouth with a hot load of cum. I used to visit three times a day in kabukicho last trip. I did a soap in Ueno was like 450 bucks but she was so fucking hot...but I wouldn't do that again I'd just get my dick sucked for the price of a few beersIt's in public too kinda like being in a really old movie theatre with high back velvet chairs
>>2330994im not a fan of that unfortunately. i dont mind it as a quickie, but id be more into relationship type stuff too. I'm hoping seeking or tinder will be easy as im quite the autist when talking to foreign girls in clubs
>>2331011>Autist>Bad talking to females>Bad with women in general>Can't speak the language>Don't understand their cultureEnjoy whacking off lmao The country is filled with people just like you that can speak the language and understand the culture. Japs don't go ga ga for white cock.
>>2330927it's tight but strangely colored
>>2331043i said im autist when talking to foreign girls in clubs. yea its hard to game girls when you dont speak the language and have music blasting so you can barely understand each other . way easier over apps. doesnt mean im bad with women. doesnt mean i wont learn the culture in less than a week. doesnt mean im a poorfag like you. the country can be filled with people like me it doesnt matter as long as there are hot jap whores that outnumber them
>>2331065Enjoy being lonely in Japan incel bro
>>2331072maybe we can meet up bro so i wont be as lonely
>>2330994>I did a soap in Ueno was like 450 bucks but she was so fucking hotthat's a lot of money, how long was it? did she let you fuck without condom
This is fate, I was just looking at Japanese escorts yesterday, not that I will be seeking one but it's interesting.
>>2331072Listen larper ricecel. I'm going to date and fuck your women and there is literally nothing you can do about it. Seethe bitch
>>2331086New York has several
>>2330918already got 3 girls lined up on tinder, gonna be storing up fat nuts til then>>2330994>Yeah just go pay 40 bucks and go to a pink saloni will do this also for the novelty and to abuse the weak yen.
>>2331100Miring the triple dubs, but I have no interest in American w*men.
>>2330906Do u have to be vaxxed tho
>>2331122Triple vaxed. I am smart so I can enter.
>>2331123Japan must be great if you're risking blood clots to go there.
>>2330931>this won't be happening for youyou are an ugly cuck. i am not. i don't have your limitations
So what's the actual wall of text saying? You can go if alone? Can 4 of us "go alone"?
>>2331174You can't go because you're an idiot with no reading comprehension
>>2331134I'm x4 vxxed. No clot yet. Although I do want to die
>>2331204you can post all the wojaks you want, faggot. nothing will change the fact that you're ugly and poor.
>>2331101>i will do this also for the novelty and to abuse the weak yen.
>>2331137I've fucked more Japs than you've had hot dinners. Japs aren't obsessed with whites. This isn't 1946. Japs don't even want to fuck other Japs mostly. They certainly don't want to fuck you.
>>2331332Why would you say something like that?It's contradictory
>>2331332You've had sex with more than 11,315 japanese women?
>>2331332>Japs don't even want to fuck other Japs mostly.They're really the planets most sexless people. I feel bad for Japanese coomers though I guess they can go to soaplands.
>>2331209>you can post all the wojaks you want, faggot. nothing will change the fact that you're ugly and poor
Is this a good itinerary for 2 weeks in Japan? I’ve been waiting for it to open up for forever. Sorry for my autism
>>2331383Also is there anything I should add? Is it worth going for 3 weeks?
>>2330927t. chad white guypic rel
>>2331196im actually jelly i wanna get another booster but i'm living in japan rn. will get one when i go back to america for the holidays
>>2330906Need 3 COVID shots to enter Japan? ANyone know?
>>2331383I showed you my itinerary pls respond
Back to planning an itinerary for March next year, feelsgoodman. One thing I've noticed when looking up itinerary stuff is people referring to trips to Japan as "once in a lifetime" trips. This might be highly autistic but I've never really understood this phrase, if you like somewhere why not go back? What makes something a "once in a lifetime" trip? I hate the phrase because to me it implies you have to spend your whole life doing things you hate (working) to save money to get ONE (1) singular big trip, and then that's it for you.
>>2331395Personally, if I go somewhere once, I don’t want to go back because I could be traveling somewhere new instead. When I go somewhere I try and see EVERYTHING and exhaust all the things I can do there if possible
hullo good morning sir ... n e 1 craempie japanese woman ... thank u sir ...
>>2330906So no more 2 week hotel stay?
Is Japan ready for my BWC (big western currency)
>three vaccinationsI'll pass
>>2331395Because it's a cool place but once you've seen most of the interesting places, the negatives outweigh the positives of coming back.
>just received my 4th dose todayHeeereee weeee gooo
>3 vax shots to get inholy shit.
>>2331418>3 normal human deeds which every normal person does to get inAre you afraid of needles?
>>2331422>pls kneel down and suck cocks cuz i said so many sea countries don't require covid shots to get in.
>>2331425>subhuman countries dont need a vaxThen go to a subhuman country, subhuman. Going to japan is a privilege. If you are to afraid of getting a needle than stay out
>>2331428>>2331413>he got needle gene therapy raped 3 to 4 times to go to where his gay autistic animes are from
>>2330906>3 ""vaccine"" shots requiredThey can (politely) suck my cock 3 times
>>2331429>its a gene therapy because muh internet told me soHow does it feel to be so retarded
>>2331383Your full day at Hiroshima should be at Itsukushima.You should check on a map for your Kyoto things, eg Monkey park is at Arashiyama.>>2331386Yes. Add days to go thru Takayama, Shirakawago, and Kanazawa. Maybe Hakone too. You could cut a day or 2 from Tokyo desu.>>2331393Done.
>>2331429>gene therapyconfirmed retard. opinion discarded
>>2331435I would have liked to see the floating shrine at Itsukushima, but as far as I’m aware (when I planned the trip) it was still under construction
>>2331440I forgot that was happening. Apparently it should be done for next year. You should go anyway, it's lovely there and there's more to see than just the floating gate.
I'm planning my trip to Japan in January and I will visit the following locations: Tokyo, Matsumoto,Takayama, Kanazawa, Kyoto, Hiroshima (maybe Osaka, but I've already been there). Now I still have a week left and I don't know if I should go to Kyushu or the north of Japan. Which did you like better? I've only been to Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka so far.
>>2331441So besides adding a few other cities for the extra week do all the individual things look good? Any attractions in particular I should go to? It just so happens that the October 11th opening works perfectly for me to be able to take a vacation there, but would it be worth it to go in the spring?
>>2331440Arrive afternoon. I was there in july around 11 am and the water was still so low that I only saw a shrine in the mud
>>2331443I loved the Osaka fortress especially cayse it was built by a japanese folk hero Hideyoshi Toyotomi. I loved the novels about him during my childhood he was my first superhero
>>2331383>>2331383This is all wrong. Very stupid typical tourist stuff. SKIP the robot restaurant, don’t see a shit ton of temples you’ll get sick of them, and stop wasting money at a million cafes. You are a waste of space in Japan and shouldn’t go because this is the stupidest itinerary I’ve ever seen. Go to the famous parks in Tokyo.You also are over ambitious and didn’t account for jet lag.
>>2331442See the snow festivals in Sapporo
>>2331383Teamlab borderless is permanently closed I thought.
>>2331383>>2331449I think the robot restaurant on acid is a fine choice
>>2331392>>2331407>>2331413>>2331418>>2331433stop lying and just read the article ffs. no jab needed just a negative test. pureblood chads, we won.
>>2331493Still retarded, but good news lol
>>2331493oh nice so no need for the heckin science juice, just need the negative test. i will ejaculate my unvaccinated semen all over these jap whores
>My body is ready.
>>2331526Nice 9 day vacaytion, pleb. I'm going to spend that much time getting massaged by ladyboys in Bangkok to prepare my body.
>>2331449You sound fun at parties.Post your ideal Japan itinerary then. Maybe I like temples and shrines. Also, not sure what you mean by “a million” cafes. I only listed going to a cat cafe and a maid cafe which are stereotypical weeb things. I’m not sure why that’s so offensive to you
>>2330918>>2330927the state of /trv/ i remember when people talked about actual vacations here
>>2331528You should see if you can put the cafe visits on two different days, you won't appreciate the second cafe otherwise.
>>2331381Angry gook spotted. I'll remember your repressed rage when japanese women are on their knees looking up at me longingly while I smack their faces with my cock
>>2331449>write an angry post>contribute not a nugget of useful information in returnYeah, I'm adding you to my blocklist.
>>2331388This guy is an 8.
Perfect timing as it's cooler, which makes it more pleasant to walk around. Haven't been to Japan since late 2019, and I can take off a month from work and burn my vacation days that have been stacking up over the pandemic.
>>2331540Where do they sell junior idol model magazines?
Any tips to cure my social anxiety before I go meet Jap friends and sex friends?
>>2331671Hype up your visit. What are you gonna do, stay in your hotel all day?
>>2331667You can find them at some adult video stores in Akihabara and random video shops elsewhere. Most stores have a separate small section dedicated to just U15 Blu Rays and magazines. There's not as much new content anymore, but Chu-Boh magazines are usually stocked.
>>2331676What d you mean by "hype up" my 'visit'?
What do you need for visa free travel if American with a USA passport? Do you have to supply an schedule, bookings, return flight etc? Any other documents besides ID and passport if staying under 90 days
From what I can tell I need an onward or return ticket, passport, and negative test/vaccine info as an American with USA passport
>>2331918Visa-freeIt's exactly what it says... You need a valid passport for a free visa to visit...
Does it really matter if I arrive/leave at Haneda or Narita? My trip will start in Tokyo but I may be venturing quite far south (going for a month). Wondering if there's any airport strategy. Was just gonna arrive and depart from Haneda.
>>2331929I prefer Haneda, because it's so close to central Tokyo.Also, if you depart early in the morning, when the trains are either packed or unavailable, it's easy just to request the hotel reception to order you a cab for the morning of the departure; if you don't know any Japanese, you might encounter a language barrier with the taxi drivers, so it helps a lot when a native speaker handles it for you.
how to get girl for creampie in tokyo?...plz respond quick thanx
>>2331948go to hub and initiate sex with the first girl you see
Alright fellas, here's a question for people actually living in Japan (specifically Tokyo) or someone who has visited recently.What is the situation with masks outdoors? I understand it's not mandated but what percentage of people actually wear them outdoors?I went to Korea a few months ago and everyone was telling me before I went that EVERYONE in Korea wears a mask and if you don't wear one you'll get whispers and someone will go autismo at you - obviously this didn't happen and despite 95% of Koreans wearing a mask outdoors - I never had any issues and once again it was just an example of the internet being dramatic.So what's it actually like? Are 95% people wearing masks outside? What percentage of foreigners aren't wearing masks?Either way, I'm not going to wear a mask outside regardless.
>>2331944>I prefer Haneda, because it's so close to central Tokyo.Narita customs > HNDBesides train ride is nice on the NEX as you can just sit enjoy the scenes, make sure wifi/mobile data is good, and hotel shit in order. HND is just a clusterfuck compared to NRT
>>2331918>book flight to japan>arrive in japan>show your american passport>welcome, kingit's that easy
Which parts of Tokyo are not infested with autistic weeb incels? I don't want to see any of that 2d manchild escapism shit
>>2331954I don't live there but I have 2 friends who do long term. What they told me and what you wrote about Koreans is 1 to 1. It ain't illegal but you'll DEFINITELY get whispers, avoided in public, maybe even ushered out of shops.
>>2331987pretty much everywhere except places like akihabara, denden town, and nakano broadway.
>>2331954Really depends where you go. I was in Osaka a few weeks ago and no one gave a fuck. Other places I've seen probably around 80% masked outdoors. This goes for foreigners and natives.Granted, each passing week I'm seeing more and more people not bother with them outside.
>>2331929I believe Haneda is faster than Narita to get to Tokyo. Thats about the only diff
>Friends all down to go to japan this year if it looks like theyre opening up>They all give up hope a month or two ago and say fuck it well just go somewhere else>This happens>They said its too late well go next yearFUUUUUUUUUUCK I dont wanna be a solo traveler
>>2331987Funny enough when I was there in 2018 I saw WAY more autistic skinny Russian weeb girls and ethots than I ever did fatass manchildren. This was in Akihabara and even the Ghibli museum, just really bizarre.
>yen is weak as fuck right nowBig discounts on whores, brothers.
>>2331422He's probably afraid of the trampling of human rights, and is trying to prevent a dystopian future where airport security blood tests are normalized. Can you look more than an inch beyond your nose at the years ahead, or are you always living in a continuous state of immediacy?
>>233195499.9% of Japanese people wear masks outside right now. No one's given me shit for going around without a mask, though. I've been on Shinkansens, gone to restaurants, taken domestic flights, no one calls me out. Just last week I sat down on the train without a mask and this little old lady got in a big huff about it. Without saying anything, but being visibly upset, she got up and moved to another car. Careful grandma, I might BREATHE on you! Oh the poison air from my nostrils! It's filling up the compartment! You're gonna die for sure, obaachan!
>>2331472I don't even think the Robot Restaurant survived the shutdown.
>>2331537That's a fairly generous score
>>2332015Then why didn't you go somewhere else with your bros? Imagine having a stuck up weeb like this in your group.
>>2331929Haneda is in Tokyo, Narita is a good hour long train ride. I prefer Narita. Customs and immigration is always smooth, plus if I take the Narita Sky Access, it takes me to the area I usually stay at without needing to transfer trains.
>>2330906How's the public toilet situation? not having a toilet nearby makes me anxious. Which results in me wanting to pee.
>>2332112They're all over the place. Just about any combini will have one available. 7-Eleven, Lawson's, Family Mart, doesn't matter. Public parks will sometimes have toilets, but it's not a sure thing.
>>2330906Have any of you been to Tsushima? What is it like there?I want to go after playing the gameis this autistic?
>During their stay, travelers must adhere to basic infection prevention measures, such as wearing masks and disinfecting hands, and they need to be enrolled in a travel insurance plan that covers medical expenses related to the coronavirus.do i actually have to do any of this?
How much shit can you get away using your gaijin card? I don't want to wear a mask in public and would love to try groping some random girl's ass on the train if that's legal.
>>2331456it is, as is robot restaurant. Anon needs to to double check all these places, google is pretty reliable with temporary/permanently closed things. I have wishfully thought a few things would be open regardless of google's status and all have been closed when I visited Hiroshima, Tokyo, Kyoto, Nagasaki etc... over the last 2.5 years.
3 jabs to get in Japan?! Nippon needs to open so I can get my big white cock inside the tight jap pussies!
Before gook flu happened, I was reading anons were getting round trip tickets for less than $2K. How the fuck is that possible? Granted I don't know shit about traveling and all I've looked on is Expedia.
>>2332159$2k? You could fly lax-nrt for under $600 if you timed it right. It was one of the most competitive routes
>>2332170I'm in the Dallas area. So is the key to not book direct flights but hop around?
>>2331456I was there in july
>>2331526How the fuck is it so cheap? From my town its 1500 euros just to go there...
>>2331472>>2332153Robot Restaurant is also permanently closed (good riddance) and Tsukiji fish market is no longer in Tsukiji, but there are still overpriced sushi restaurants there fleecing tourists. I recommend renting a bike in Kyoto. Best way to go temple hopping. And look into the "Fire Ramen Restaurant" by the castle.
>>2332123I heard they were gearing up for a massive tourism push following the release of the game. Then covid happened and it all amounted to nothing. Visit wherever you want. I imagine anywhere will be glad for gaijin money.
>>2332179It shut in August. Beats me what kind of person puts together an itinerary without checking if the things on it are still open.
Osaka is hopping tonight! Anyone want to meet up and go drink and harass Japanese girls?
>>2332187Any info about why did they close? I am very suprised desu, there were tons of people and it was in the top 5 stuff which I saw in japan
>>2332181I live in Hawaii. I have gotten even cheaper tickets before.
>>2332262I would be ashamed to offer a member program that only let's you advertise less than 2 bucks discount.
>>2332123Tsushima is fun as a stopover between Japan and Korea.
>>2331944>Taking a cab from NRTAnon, this is awful fucking advice. That's easily going to cost you a hundred dollars. Just take an express train
>>2332185>>2332274yea but is there stuff to do there?I did a quick google map look and it looks like there isnt anything to do there but go hiking around the nature which would be nice but I am wondering how viable it is to actually get between areas there.
>>2332280They have a bus system, if staying for more than a night you could rent a bike.
>>2331134>Japan must be great if you're risking blood clots to go there.Doesn't matter to me. I have a wealthy person's doctor who fakes it.Is it at all worth it to buy camera gear in Japan? I want some decent Fuji stuff, and it'd be nice to not have to haul it there, but I don't want a Japan-only warranty on it.
>>2331449jet lag isn't real if you aren't a retarded boomer
>>2332327What the fuck are you talking about retard?
>>2332341Just take Modafinil like a real chad
>>2332345You're American aren't you?
>>2332171Yes, if I were to fly to Asia from the middle of the country I would probably take a southwest or other cheap flight to SFO or LAX and then go on one of the Asian airlines. There are (were) just so many flights between west coast cities and Asia to choose from. >>2332278That's why he suggested flying to/from Haneda.
>>2332103No I mean too late as in they arent going anywhere and saving vacay for next year.
>>2331395It's once in a lifetime cause it's so fucking expensive you can never afford to do it again.
tempted on 2.4k for tickets plus a month hotel
>>2332076An 8 in Japan that is.
>>2332226They closed because that whole area in Odaiba that they were located is being re-developed. Venus Fort/Palette Town is closed, the giant Ferris Wheel is closed, Toyota Megaweb is closed, Oedo Onsen Monogatari is closed. Odaiba is now completely pointless to visit unless you absolutely must see the giant Gundam. Fuck, even the Gundam Cafe is closed.
>>2332365Japan isn't expensive and anyone that says it is has never been and has absolutely no idea
>>2332408Japan is only expensive if you're a third world SEA monkey.
Been there two times in the pastIts not that easy to get laid if you dont speak japaneseThe second time there i didnt smash but the first time i found a girl on a dating app, cutest 21 year old who just had coming of ageSince i only had with one japanese so far i cant tell, but it seemed they are built petite even down there, didnt really work out that great cause i got a thick 7.5 inch schlong and she was more afraid than into itThey also never seem to have time besides the weekends... I imagine if you can speak japanese and are mid 20 you could easily date lots of uni students tho
Does anybody know if you will still need an ERFS form to get into Japan after Oct. 11 or does that go away?
Ruined. I wish the Doomposters weren’t wrong. The floodgates will open and all the sweaty weebs foaming at the mouth for the past several years are going to fuck the country up so bad they’ll probably reverse the decision>Just imagine all the “new weebs” created by the pandemic and TikTok recentlySigh
>>2331065there are more yellowfevercels than got whores in that country>implying yamato girls are actually hot and anything like jav/grav stars anyway
How much should I save up for a 1-2 week trip to check out most of the islands? Probably the #1 thing I want to do is check out onsen / hot springs.
>>2332426>there are more yellowfevercels than got whores in that country>>implying yamato girls are actually hot and anything like jav/grav stars anyway
Only anons, I have 5 weeks of vacation time I can/need to use by the end of year. Hypothetically, if I can even get into Japan, where are some unique places to go to during November or December? That is assuming prices on anything else is reasonable
>>2332408Alright, if you were to stay in Japan for 60 days where would you stay with a monthly budget of 200k Yen?
>>2332409I dunno, I'm almost £1000 in the hole and that's just for the flights. Easily affordable but definitely on the higher end. God I hate spending money.
>>2331085Not that anon but I had two seperate soapland experiences in Yoshiwara in 2018. Its expensive but its worth a try for the novelty. I'd note you will get fucked by the gaijin tax if they let you in. You can haggle a tiny bit as they will try to upsell you but be polite as they can just as easily make you leave. I'd advise knowing enough japanese to communicate what you want also. Didn't get to fuck without condom but from what I've read if you have enough money or are a repeat customer you can. Girls were hot, especially the second one that spoke broken english and went full on the GFE part of it.
Is the age of consent actually 13 in Japan? Asking for a friend.
>>2332492NoIn other topics, any vaccine guidance yet?
>>2332492Technically yes. As long as you make sure her parents and herself are cool with it, it's actually not even illegal to have sex with a 13 yo kid in Japan. Unlike how it is in the West, having sex with a minor doesn't automatically count as rape there.
>>2332509>Technically yes. As long as you make sure her parents and herself are cool with it, it's actually not even illegal to have sex with a 13 yo kid in Japan. Unlike how it is in the West, having sex with a minor doesn't automatically count as rape there
>>2331954outside almost everyone wears a mask especially in the cities, even in parks.I have almost never worn a mask outside except for a couple weeks in April 2020.People may stare at you, especially if you are talking.no one has ever said anything to me, although last month an old guy saw me without a mask(outside) and started putting his hand to his mask and running away and when many kids see me they gasp on put their hands over their mask.. Also many people will pinch the nose seam on their mask when they walk by you(mostly boomers, otaku in there 20s and kids who do this)Thankfully this is not Taiwan where I have heard people will scream at you if you dont wear a mask(outdoors,indoors without a mask will probably get you arrested and deported).
>>2332444she's right though.
>>2332290There are good second hand cameras because everyone in Japan takes super good care of their stuff. No warranties, though.
>>2331383KEK. This is my first time hearing of Piss Alley. I went to Golden Gai in 2019 and found it to be pretty lame but maybe it was a slow night there.
>>2332478Airlines have jacked prices across the board. I used to get $200 AUD return from Australia to Tokyo direct flights. Japan is very cheap for eating and drinking.
>>2332581Piss alley is a tourist trap and expensive, just the same as golden gai but worse. Don't bother. It's all the little alley next to the above ground train bridge at the JR. Albatross is a popular bar there.
>>2332565>Thankfully this is not Taiwan where I have heard people will scream at you if you dont wear a maskthat happened to me a few times there, they are fucking insane, both outdoors and indoors. Outdoors one guy was riding a bike and stopped just to get off and mimic putting a mask on to me and shouting shit.another time in a store a random old lady started putting her arms up in a big X shape and following me around the store, she then went and yelled at the workers and complained like a huge bitch throwing a tantrum
>>2332492No, kid diddler.
>>2332565>>2332589I thought Asian people were supposed to be smart or something. It's 2022 and everyone should know masks don't matter at this point.
Inb4 corona "numbers" start rising again in fall/winter, open travel gets the blame, japan closes again. You heard it here first.
>>2332630No, they are not that smart. They are extremely compliant and never question things. They are good at solving and learning some shit but that’s it.
>>2332416You don't need an ERFS unless your country didn't have a visa exemption before COVID. In other words, it goes back to being like it was before COVID. No information yet on vaccine/PCR requirements but you should assume you will need one or the other. They will verify it.
Adderall and prescription stimulants are illegal in Japan, I know that. Does anyone have experience trying to bring it with as a tourist?
>>2332648I've heard that countless times in person from other people, you're not as smart or witty as you think.
My friend and I are looking to go to Japan in November and he does not have the jab, would he still be allowed to go to Japan with me?
>>2332630The government told them to stop wearing them as they don't work, and the people keep wearing them.And they also look at you weird if you don't wear them.The Japanese aren't normal.
>>2332877They didn't tell them to stop wearing them, they told them to take them off during breaks if it's hot and there aren't many people.Japan really needs a *GO TO SMAIRU 100%" campaign to get their people back to normal again.
Tell me about the gaijin hunters
october is looking to be the cheapest time to book flights for around new year, right?
>>2331043>Japs don't go ga ga for white cockholy cope
I realized I have incurable yellow fever but I don't want to assimilate with asian culture. how can I get a hot asian gf as a tall handsome young white male with money? maybe university hotspots in the west where a lot of asian girls study? anyone has intel?
>>2332909I'll let you in on a little secret. They don't. Most japs hate foreigners.
>>2332915Anywhere in the West.
>>2332422>Ruined. I wish the Doomposters weren’t wrong. The floodgates will open and all the sweaty weebs foaming at the mouth for the past several years are going to fuck the country up so bad they’ll probably reverse the decisionR*skie fags are all dying in Ukraine, so no worry about them. Hopefully Americans have learned how to behave during the coof
>>2332444You might have gotten trips but there are still more Western white losers flooding Japan that cuties (especially willing to date foreigners) living in Japan. Retarded weeb
>>2332916It's still incredibly easy to get laid as a White guy in Japan. I should know, I've done it many times.
>>2332915Vancouver or Toronto>>2332916This>>2332930> Hopefully Americans have learned how to behave during the coofLol
>>2332940You aren’t fooling anybody. Bad troll, poor LARP, pathetic cope
>>2332915Literally any half-decent university in US, Canada, or East Asia. University is when alot of them have there initial sexual experiences so should be easy picking if you know how what to say and how to act.
>>2332409>>2332408The only people who think Japan is expensive are people who live in shitty flyovers and away from big cities.
>the yen is weak >finally openingi need a list of the best nightclubs now
so say japan opens up.what do i need to do?apply for a visa at the consulate?do a covid test? (at home?)or can i just buy a ticket and go.
>>2333083read the thread you stupid nigger
>>2333086i'm not scrolling through 200 of your attention whoring posts
>>2333087>Dumb nigger doesn't know how to googlePlease don't go to japan
So what was the consensus on the compulsory hotel isolation stay? Is that still a thing, has it been abolished already or will it go away too under these new rules?
>>2333083No one knows for sure yet.Likely:- 3 times vaxor- PCR test 72 hours before departure
>>2333087>Title says: "Japan to Restore Visa-Free Travel">Asks wherever need to apply for a visa at the consulate
>>2333083Full vaxx and both boosters, tested you don't have it or proofed you got the coof before
>>2332381only if you give him a +3 for being a foreigner which is *too* generous
Well we're going back in November.I haven't been to japan since 2016 but pretty sure it hasn't changed much, i plan on mostly enjoying the nature with some cool treks.Bought the plane ticket as it was cheap, i'm vax x2 and had covid once, really hoping i don't get fucked in the ass by their opening conditions.
>>2333276You will need PCR or get another clot shot. Japan does not care about having had covid before.
>>2333278As long as its only one i'm okay with this.Can do them for free here, even if it isn't really pleasant.What i'm fearing the most is if there's a sudden resurgence and they place us into a yellow/red country and have to possibly to a few days of quarantines.
>>2333280It seems they demand the test certificate to be a specific form though, it's a little bit difficul to find more information about this.Test centers here in Germany offer tests for Japan specifically, which are also more expensive.
>>2333282Here in Ireland the Japanese embassy has a good explanation for the tests and also lists all the test centers that will fill out the custom test certificate.
>>2333288>>2333282What the fuck.Well i guess i'll check the embassy website but jesus christ why do they have to be anal about everything.
>>2332802Just needs a negative test. PCR IIRC
>>2333233Hope it's the latter.>>2333256Fuck please no
>>2333238Yeah but I don't know if getting a visa gives you benefits or lets you stay longer or whatever
A few questions from someone traveling from the U.S. to Japan.>What's the cheapest flight I can get that allows a carry on bag and a normal suitcase (the best I saw so far was 1400)?>I was planning on taking 3k for flight, food, hotel, and fun, will that be enough or is 3k too low?>I understand that you will be fine without English in the major cities but how screwed am I if into the smaller tiny towns?>Should I get a pre loaded card or should I wait to get there and exchange us currency for Japanese currency, not sure how it all works.
>>2333395Forgot to Clarify I'm staying 7 days
>>2333395Dunno not merimutt, but flights are very expensive rn.Last time I was in Japan my trip with all expenses was 2200€. Of that, the flight was 650€.No one really understands English. In the big cities you are fine because restaurant menues, train stations, etc have everything in English. But from my experience you can make things work with their minimal understaning of English, gestures and Google. People are usually very open to accomodating you.What is a "pre loaded card"? The best way to get money in Japan is by credit card from ATMs. 711 and the Japanese post office allow you to withdraw money for free. But 711 seems to have changed their system from what I can read and you now have to manually select YEN, otherwise they will scam you with their shitty interest rate.>>2333397Whats with americans and paying thousands of dollars for a 7 day holiday???
>>2333397Hostel expense really depend on where in Japan you'll be. Even in Tokyo you can find decent stuff for 30-40 dollars a night if you are willing to take the train for about an hour to get into a popular district, but if you want to be downtown shit's gonna be expensive.>how screwed am I if into the smaller tiny towns?Not really screwed, from my experience people are comprehensive and will take it lightly / laugh.Worse case, you have a phone and access to google/apple translation it works wonder and people will be willing to type on that for conversation.>Should I get a pre loaded card or should I wait to get there and exchange us currency for Japanese currency, not sure how it all works.Just top up a suica card once you arrive, its helpful for many things, for the rest you can just apple/google/contactless and there's ATMs in like every 7/11 or family mart.>I was planning on taking 3k for flight, food, hotel, and fun, will that be enough or is 3k too low?That will be enough my friend. unless you want a fancy hotel in the middle of the city
>>2333417>Whats with americans and paying thousands of dollars for a 7 day holiday???That's the food budget.
>>2333418> Hostel expense really depend on where in Japan you'll be. Even in Tokyo you can find decent stuff for 30-40 dollars a night if you are willing to take the train for about an hour to get into a popular district, but if you want to be downtown shit's gonna be expensive.It really pays off to go with friends (if you have any), I'll be staying in a nice hotel next to Akiba station for under 30.
>>2333423While Japan in general is cool solo i would advise anyone to go with friends if possible, there's just so many silly/fun stuff around to do with them.
ok now that Japan is opening I'm planning my first trip there. Question is since I'm planning of doing it solo where the hell can I meet young japanese people? No hostels no HUB please.
>>2333476https://www.eventernote.com/Looks for events that interest you, get tickets if needed, and mingle with locals
If everything goes well I'll spend a year in Japan starting may/june 2023.What are places I should definitely check out and things I should do?Have a decent amount of money and obviously time as well, so I'd like to maybe see some less touristy stuff.
>>2333423Link? I need it for that price!
I think ill just get the 3rd shot in case I get fucked by a random pcr covid pop
>>2333487I don't have the link right now, but it really isn't hard to find something cheap. Keep in mind I am sharing the room and afaik friend gets a slight discount on booking.com. Solo for regular price it would not be that cheap obviously. Look around on booking.com/airbnb.
>>2333494Yeah our group was able to get a "shared apartment", where guests had to share 2 toilet and shower stalls, but there were individual rooms for sleeping and there were enough for each of us. The price was ridiculously low too because we split the cost between 6 people, so it ended up being like $20-$30 per night.However this was before there was that big crackdown on AirBNB and now there are more rules and restrictions to follow to rent out your place, so not sure how easy it is to find such a place now.
>>2330918Says the 32 year old obese virgin whos' never been out of his own country before. Lurk more faggot.
>>2333487He's probably thinking of AKIBA Hotel which use to be 3000/yen a night.20-30 dollars is about on par for a decent hostel in tokyo, was what I normally payed for the better hostels 2018->2020 before lockdowns. Yen is in the tank so easy to reserve now and pay with cash there. Exchange rates matter.>>2333547He probably means the rules where Japan said you can't lease your house/apartment out for more than 180 days a year
>>2333395>7 days>a carry on bag and a normal suitcasePost tits
>>2333550I'm not a woman but that's funny lol. I want to bring a carry on so I can buy copious amounts of useless weeb shit and candy to bring back to my friends and family.
>>2333619Same. I have literally flown to Japan with one carry on size suitcase and one roller suitcase. The carry on went inside the large, otherwise empty roller on the outbound trip (I checked it). On the return, I put my clothes in the carry on and stuffed the roller full of weeb shit to bring back.
Do the Japanese really hate smelling colognes and find it disrespectful or invasive?
>>2332422>fuck the country up so badIf by that you mean "save the economy," then, yes.
>>2332952Honest question, are you not White? You seem upset at something that's common knowledge. Is it as easy as the Philippines? Absolutely not. Is it even close to being as stupid as the US? Absolutely not. It's easy for White guys to date girls in Japan. Nothing you can post will ever change that fact.
>>2333497Damn before the AirBNB crackdown I stayed in some really rundown places. And the living room of some forever single Japanese catmom. I did pay 15€ a night though.
>bookmarked several properties on realestate.co.jp last week>search for available properties without any filters>can't see the ones I bookmarked last week>visit the bookmarks directly>still availableHow the fuck does this thing work?
Frens, I know I need a PCR to enter Japan but do I need one to fly out of japan?
>>2333395>Outside of the major citiesIf you don't speak Japanese lol good luck
>>2333812I swear to fucking god some of you eat crayons for breakfast.
>>2333820why tho? My country doesn't require vax or pcr to enter just curious if it will be needed at the airport
>>2333824Which color did you have for lunch today?
>>2331493covid tests are also bad, would avoid if I can help it
>>2333547>>2333549Yeah I don't remember the exact details regarding the rules and regulations, but basically the government wanted to regulate who and how someone can rent out their place which resulted in a huge drop in listings.
If my friend gets covid while we are there will I be forced to stay there for like a week?
>>2333938How will they know that you have covid unless you get tested?
>>2333968There are mandatory biweekly tests for gaijins
>>2333812>>2333824D E P A R T U R EThey check when you board the plane.
>>2331537That dude is hard 6 at best. Look at that face and those man tits. Gross
>>2332017I want an autistic weeb Russian ethot gf
>>2332784From what I read they have basically no tolerance for it, you will be turned away at the airport at best or thrown in jail and deported at worst.
>>2334075Hold on, so if I have my 3 vaccines I'm good, but if my buddy doesn't will he have to get tested before we depart the us and before we go back?
great all the weebs and soiboi will be back sooncant wait to see them all lonely and not fun
aus fag> flight booked> private accommodation booked> saving money till mid November fly outAny bros want to meet up for a drink?
>>233410372 hours before the flight takes off he will need a test. Look up what tests are valid. Also it's highly suggested to use the form the japanese government provides. You also need the MySOS app it seems. You will need to upload your vaxx pass there, and he his test result.
>>2332156It is open for vaxxed chads. Antivax virgin and his fantasies btfo.
>>2334378>imagine getting 3 (three) mystery injections instead of simply faking ONE simple test voucher
>>2334400I wonder, do they actually check this? It's just a freaking form that you need to fill out. I can do that shit myself.
>>2334120I'm thinking of going late Novemberhow much did accommodation cost you? Seems cheap atm
>>2330906I only got 2 jabs do I really need 3?
>>2331406>visit Albania like 3 months ago>conversion rate from Japanese Yen to Albanian Lek was basically 1:1>see >>2331406's pic and decide to check again>picrel
>>2334400>mystery injectionsNobody is taking horse paste. Antivax virgins of /pol/ do not even know that all vaccine ingredients have been public information from day one. Calling it "mystery injection" only shows that your intelligence is so low you are unable to understand the contents and you are far too dumb to understand how vaccines work, despite all this information being open and easily available.
>>2331493Pure virgins are too scared to get a vaccine, so of course they are too scared to get a COVID test.
In all honesty, how are you fags managing to afford the price of these flights? A return ticket for me (as a kiwi fag) is around the $2000 mark which, sure, I can afford but I sure as shit don't wanna spend 2k of my 10k budget on fucking flights. Might just wait a bit for prices to go down.
>>2334120If you're going to Kyushu at all, sure.
>>2335143If you aren't not eager to spend that kind of money to travel to Japan right now you will have a better experience going next year when hopefully things have normalised a bit more.>>2335113>>2335115Good morning, how's the weather in Tel Aviv today?
>>2335165True that. I think a bit of price gouging is at play at the moment since travelling to great Nihon has been in everyone's bucket list for the past 2-3 years. I'm really hoping it dies down, got some good friends I've been meaning to meet again since 2018.
>>2335143>>2335165How much were flights to Japan pre-COVID?
>>2335235When I went in 2018 my ticket was 750 NZD with return. We got lucky though but most flights were between that and 1k.
>>2335221>>2335248reckon it's worth paying a premium to go soon after re-opening? No guarantee that the flights will come down any time soon. This might just be the New Normal
>>2335255It really depends. Idk what the general attitude towards foreigners will be over there, might be grateful for the well needed boost to the economy or might straight up kick you out of stores because of your filthy gaijin rona. Me personally, i'm just gonna wait it out. Give the airlines a bit of time to sort their prices out since it 'will' come down (just look at other asian flights) and also gives the Jap people time to settle back into having tourists.
>>2335255I went to Japan during some of their peak tourist seasons so I don't think I will mind any number of tourists during my visits to Japan as much as I would mind their pandemic paranoia that they have right now.
>>2335143Book in advance and be flexible.I booked my trip 2 days ago for early November, paid 900 euros for a round trip. Worth noting that i never put in exact dates, i just use "all of november" in skyscaner or such and then pick out my dates to the cheaper dates.Sometimes even a 2 days variation will save you 300-400 eurosdollars.Also yes the current prices of a trip to japan are horseshit, last time i went there it was 600-700 euros.
thoughts on Ethiad? flying from EU to JPN (hopefully), flights are so fucking cheap (like 50% cheaper)
>>2335402I went with Etihad from Germany to Tokyo (stop in Abu Dhabi) back in 2017 and they were good. Nothing special, but nothing bad to say about them either.
>>2335402>>2335415They are one of the best airlines. More refills of drinks than many other airlines, one of the best selection of movies and music in the entertainment system and most importantly often gives out Business Class upgrades even to silver tier frequent fliers. Abu Dhabi airport is not the best neither the worst airport, better than Dubai airport for sure. Emirates is an overrated and worse in every regard version of Etihad.
>>2333478Download tinder and let the chicks show you around
>>2335415>>2335531good thanks /trv/ bros, I wasn't sure if spending more was worth it (for Lufthansa or Singapore airlines)the only thing that pisses me off is that ethiad website is shit so I'd probably book flights with an OTA.never flown with a layover though, finger crossed.
>>2335000Are you able to read?
>>2335933If your layover goes well, you'll have a good tine to stretch your legs and relax a little with good food.If it goes bad, well...>flying back from Tokyo>layover in Dubai>your connecting flight is delayed>your connecting flight is cancelled>we got you a new flight to Berlin (I was going to Frankfurt)>we will organize a flight from Berlin to Frankfurt>get to Berlin>your flight to Frankfurt is cancelled>also your luggage is in DüsseldorfIn the end it took me almost a day extra to get home. Another three days to get my luggage. This is a worst case scenario though.
>>2335954Did u fuck at qt at least?
>>2331383nice itinerary anon.also is teamlab borderless worth it or a meme? seems cool but 25 bucks seem too much for quirky visual effects.
Friends, I'm in a country that's currently in a Yellow zone (portugal). I'm unvaxxed I don't understand if I just have to do a PCR or if I'll also have to self quarantine 3 days. There is conflicting info in sites
>>2336549I think they are dropping the color system on the 11th, but unfortunately they have been a little vague about what changes on the 11th.
Does Japan still sell the Char Burger at mcdonalds.
