ーCurrent status on the Miyajima Floating Torii Gateー
Construction is wrapping up. Consequently, it's worth visiting Miyajima to see the it from up close without needing to float.

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’m gonna be in Japan from January to July, any anons got recommendations on attractions I can’t miss while I’m there? So far I’m looking at going to Disney and USJ. Related, when do tickets open for Anime Japan? I looked at their site and I can’t even go to the ticket page. Is it sold out already?

Been here a few days got some tips
-Landing in Japan it is a must to have Visit Japan Web https://www.digital.go.jp/en/services/visit_japan_web-en/ done. It took me about 2hrs, mostly waiting to verify documents. This is your immigration forms, customs forms, and vax confirmation to your PCR/vax cert. They will hold you outside the plane till you finish it and doing so may take an hour or more, seriously saw so many boomers getting pissy about it
-Getting through the airport is idiot proof, you seriously are following a guided walk way with a temp check stop and people telling you exactly what to do. Everything is basically idiot proof.
-Shops are opening later and closing earlier, not a huge ordeal but it was enough for me to take notice compared to previous times in Japan especially akihabara. Not uncommon to see many places open at 10 or even 11 close at 7 or 8pm.
-Foreigners are at an all time low even with the flood gates open
-cashless systems are way more available at shops now few places aren't accepting of at least pasmo/suica even the small mom and pop places that often were cash only
-prices for things like food increased a bit but it's still entirely possible to be well fed for 15USD/day, just add like 100-150 yen on to old pics you see of food and that's probably right
-Day passes for trains are still available(900yen) but 3 day value passes seem to be gone
-women are pretty open to hooking up especially right now

For masks, pretty much anywhere in Tokyo is going to want them. tl;dr
-Outdoors is optional but recommended in crowded areas
-essentially required on all trains+stations
-Tokyo has the strongest amount of masks dropping off the farther you get from it
-Most places to eat/drink want them on until at least seated or have a drink with you
-Comfort masks are a ripoff here order some from home
-your flight will most likely require a mask during the transit

Trying to think of anything else that might be useful so will keep threads updated

I want to visit japan but I hate all things seafood and as far as proteins are concerned I only go for chicken or beef (and no weird cuts or organ meats). I dont like pork but Im cool with ham and bacon.
What are some good options for me which are easy to find all over the country? (doesnt have to be japanese food)
>>
>>2362275
I didn't eat any sushi when I went to Japan. I ate loads of chicken katsu curry.
>>
>>2362276
so i should be able to find some form of chicken katsu in even the smaller towns? i can live with that.
i know the medium to big places i can find whatever i want just want some ideas for when im in the most homogenous of places.

Oh, right. I forgot gyudon has dashi stock. You can just stick to burgers, fried chicken/karaage, tonkotsu ramen, pork or chicken katsu, non-seafood sandwiches, non-seafood pasta, and non-seafood pizza. They are pretty much available anywhere.

what the fuck are you talking about? give me some tips because I feel like an alien here, it seems that Japanese people live in their bubble and don't want to have nothing to do with foreigners.
as for masks yeah everyone is wearing them, this is another thing that makes it hard to bond with people here.

Would you guys recommend the area right around the Higashi-Shinjuku subway station? Currently looking at the Tokyo Stay East Shinjuku, it's the dot furthest south on the map. It seems to me to be a pretty good location, want to stay there for a week. I want a place that isn't RIGHT in the middle of the action/chaos, but just outside of the area so I can walk to it. I'd like for it to at least mostly quiet for the most part, and I don't mind if that means I have to walk a couple more minutes to the station (shinjuku or otherwise)

Yeah I need a hotel that has both twin bedrooms and full/queen bedrooms for my group. I've also heard that APA hotels are a bit run down, although I think that might be reddit-tards upset about their owner.

a couple weeks ago i was staying in sumida in a 3 bedroom apt airbnb, w kitchen/dining area, bathroom, washing machine for only 40$ a day (stayed with my friend so we split it)
plenty of space for the both of us and paid 20$ each a night
a little far from tokyo center (40-50 min by train) but it was fine, its also nice to stay somewhere more quiet/rural

Interesting. Two saying yes and one saying no. Is it a short beard or stubbly? Im just a little bit below chad lite so im curious if having a beard is that last little thing to completely disqualify me. Could shave it and grow back to the same size in like 2-3 weeks but I look better with it than without.

Some girls have a beard fetish, but they're definitely a minority. If you are handsome, then a beard is fine. Some girls will tell you they want to see you without a beard. Whether you shave or not shave for them won't affect how long your short term tourist visa relationship will last.
>Interesting. Two saying yes and one saying no.

Hey guys. Has anyone been to the Fuji area? I wanted to get from Lake Motosu to Shimobe JR High (Motosu High School). But I see no bus routes going there and getting to the station near the school would require a 2hr loop around Mt Fuji. Is Uber or a taxi accessible in that area?

Taxis are available nearly everywhere if you can call a taxi service. Since you however don’t know that I’m assuming you’re a Gaijin that doesn’t speak Japanese. You will probably not be able to call one.

Why are Japanese women such sluts

My gf of 2 years cheated on me with some random tinder faggots.when I confronted her she said she did it because I "don't listen to her enough". Despite moving country and swapping job to live with her.

I broke up with her then started fucking a couple new chicks, then I inspect their social media and they both have boyfriends, one American guy who she was LDR with and the other some Swedish guy in the same city.

What the fuck
>>
>>2362396
I actually lucked out my first time staying at a hostel in Japan, some cute jap girl behind front desk asked for my IG and invited me out for drinks but I dropped my spaghetti and mumbled some shit excuse and how I'll talk to her later. The next day she had lost all interest.

Pretty much first time I ever had a jap girl openly flirt with me and I fucked it up with my autism. I did manage to fuck that trip but it was all 25+ cakes with ugly faces
>>
>>2362449
Cheating isn't considered a huge deal in Japan
Some people think it's fine as long as you don't get caught, or others as long as you don't kiss, or others as long as you don't develop an emotional connection
It's just a different culture

What's the best way to take an extended visit to Japan for around 1-2 years? Is a language school a good option? I'm looking for minimal cost and a good balance of free time and work/study.
>>
>>2362473
Language school will cost about $6000 USD a year and 3 hours on weekdays with 80% attendance minimum
Might be cheaper outside of Tokyo, but IMO you could go to university for that price probably

Something something not groveling enought for WW2. There is a history book of Japan in every room and apparently, when Trump got elected they put a photo of him in the international history few pages.
The rooms were kinda small but with padded walls with cloth, having a very comfy feeling. They give you a instantaneous tea and coffe bag and a bottle of water every day, and there is a couple of oven-microwaves and ice machines for the Family Mart food. Also, pic related is the flashlight that every bed has at it's head in case of emergency

Should have mentioned that the microwaves and ice machines are in the corridors to the rooms, in each room you get a water boiler for the coffe/tea.

My experience so far:
-Barely any white tourists and the majority have been Canadian and Spanish (wtf??)
-This is my 4th time in 15 years and I have never seen so many brown/blacks in japan before. Even had Indians speaking Japanese at me at the airport albeit with awful curry accent. Nigerians still infest Tokyo at night.
-Tokyo seems extremely quiet now. My gf was shocked at how not busy the famous crossing was
-Masks everywhere all the time even when ppl are riding bikes/exercising. Absolute lunacy. I don't wear mine outside but I cave in on trains etc coz I don't want to be abused by vaxxed bugmen in moonspeak. That being said at night they seem to loosen up and remove them. Hell I've even seen signs saying "let's get outside without masks" yet they continue to wear them. Dumb.
-kyoto much more busy with tourists (mostly asians and hideous Asian mutts... what even are they? American? Singapore?) But it depends where you go. For eg I went to golden pavilion and it was the most quiet I've ever seen it (3rd time) but then arashiyama (which I didn't think was that well known since I've never been) was more packed than Tokyo.
-breakfast/morning culture doesn't seem to exist here. very peculiar. Good coffee extremely hard to find although I found a good cafe one in kyoto. I am a coffee snob tho so you Americans will be fine with the brown slop they serve I am sure. Almost everywhere doesn't open until 10 or later. Fucking ridiculous. Obviously shitty chains are exception
-english isn't widely spoken as some of you may have been lead to believe. Pointing helps but just fuckin learn basic stuff at least. It really isn't difficult at all. If you're just here for a trip you don't need to learn everything just have a few sentences pre loaded (like ordering food).
-PRO TIP: If you are travelling to via jr pass but you got to the station using suica make sure you get your suica activated by an attendant. I forgot to do this and was confused why suica didn't work in kyoto

God I hope China goes into awful lockdown by the time I go to Kyoto in June. I've heard it's an infestation.

Also does anyone know if Golden Gai is still worth going to? I've heard it got gutted by COVID so idk
>>
More:
-i agree with other anons that apa hotels are great. Cheap cozy and good locations. Might be too small for some but how much time are you really gonna spend there?
-if you are tall chad like me protip look for accommodation that has futon. Beds in japan are small
-Youll end up with a shit ton of coins. Might be worth having a seperate pouch or wallet just for coins otherwise your main wallet will be like a boulder
-can use suica at conbini and some vending machines and some businesses might accept (i havent personally come across any) but cash is always gonna be king
-while useful, google maps isnt always the most trustworthy. Especially with walking times (unless you sperg walk everywhere). Always leave an extra bit of time just incase you fuck up on public transport. Its bound to happen just make your days a bit more flexible and roll with it. Once you learn its easy just be aware different lines/companies may vary with how they operate (eg smaller local trains/buses need exact change, pay on board etc)
-even if youre not huge into the music rock/metal bars are great way to meet people. Yes there will be mostly other gaijin but quite often the Japanese there will want to chat to you too. Also dont be afraid to chat to the other foreigners around. Covid has made everyone anti social and miserable. Life is much more enjoyable when making new friends/meeting people and just being more friendly. I know most of you struggle with social side of things but even just a smile or "where are you guys from?" can make a difference.

I'm going with family next year and was wondering how long it takes to explore Kyoto? At first glance it feels like you can see half the important stuff in like a day, but I don't know what to expect in terms of train travel in Kyoto and how much walking you actually do.
>>
>>2362667
Not much train travel. It's mostly walking/buses/taxis.
>>
>>2362667
It depends on how much you like shrines and temples and gardens. If you really like them and want to see them all, four days of nonstop temple hopping should do the trick. If that's not your thing, you can see two/three of the big tourist trap temples/shrines in one day.

Based. I like to stick to smaller venues with rock and metal shows. How's the experience there? From the live shows I've watched online, moshing doesn't seem to be a thing.
>>
>>2362707
Yeah, it really isn't. Sometimes on rare occasions it will happen, but it's nothing too aggressive. Depends on the venue though.
Small venues are very small. You will be so cramped there that there's really no space to do much of anything.
If you are sticking to smaller venues, you should be fine just going and paying up front the entry fee. No tickets necessary, they'll just stamp your hand and give you 1 free drink ticket.

all right lads reporting in from Kyoto, I walked like 15 miles. The best one was Kyomizu Dera and that famous zen garden. Golden Pavillion is a meme, super packed, a walking line from start to the end. It's my first time but imo there aren't a lot of tourists. Tried Hellotalk, no luck so far. Tomorrow I'll go to Nara and then Osaka, I hope Kansai people are more friendly. I can't believe it's been a week here and still no peepee in vagoo. I kinda lost all the hope desu.
I also tried to install Tinder and Bumble but they are unavailable.

Speaking of hotels, I only ever used booking as a last minute solution years ago so I'm not sure how it really works for that specific question : I want to profit the most from the weak JPY right fucking now. If I book from booking right now, do they charge immediately once I place the order, or only when it enters the window where you can't cancel anymore?
I have some doubts about the "charging immediately" thing, especially as many hotels allow you to cancel 24h prior.

My experience has been totally opposite. Have made plenty of connections both fellow foreigners and native Japanese every time I've gone out. We're all spergs here so I dunno what to tell you besides try being more open? Do you smile and say hello to people? I mean, I literally had two people on opposite sides of me coaching me on kanji pronunciation as I practiced anki on the train tonight, all I did was point to the screen and try and pronounce (obviously asking via body language if I was correct). They patiently helped me the whole ride. The next train, I asked the guy if I was on the correct line, because I couldnt find a sign anywhere, so I just pointed to the station letter and number on my phone and said "行く?" He asked where I was from and then we talked our favorite foods and anime.

I am not sure what you mean by "japanese people absolutely don't care about you" -- how much do you go out of your way to talk to strange tourists back home? They are living their life, too, anon.

That will be fine, but often even at the small shops there are ticket machines, and they might only be in Japanese if they are a small family shop. If you can read Japanese, you'll be in better shape, but if not you can just just order the most expensive item from the machine to get the works on your ramen.

Supreme is kind of old and played out streetwear. It depends on what kind of girls you want to fuck, although at the end of the day being an ikemen trumps all. You can be an ikemen and wear basic as Uniqlo, and girls will want to fuck you.

I've never used them. I will say this about soaplands: take the attractiveness of the pics and lower your expectations a bit. If a girl looks like an 8 there, she's probably more like a 6 or 5, but you might get lucky where the pictures are accurate and the girl looks as good or better. I use soaplands in Tokyo, but if I'm in Osaka then I'm using Tobita to not mess around with that bait and switch. Consider using a store where you can book a JAV actress so you can get a good sense of what she looks like from her films if they are recent. I did use a pink salon in Osaka that allows you 15 minutes to "sample" the girls working at the moment, and on one of the days I was there about 8 girls were working, and 1 of them was actually very pretty compared to the rest (an 8+ in a sea of 5/6s, and I was able to pick her because I had the first pick).

I've never paid for extra stuff like recording, but I have paid extra for anal because I wanted to fuck a former JAV gyary actress in the ass, and it was worth it. If I had been able to book a session with Lala Kudo while I was in Tokyo, I probably would have.
>>
>>2363554
Thanks for the insight anon, I might have to consider Osaka in future.
+ Good tip on checking jav actresses videos, I'll do that.
One concern I have is ordering a girl to my hotel, as I've read that some of them request to be met in the lobby and walked up to the hotel room. Hopefully doesn't happen, but I suppose hotel staff won't intervene in any case (even if it's obvious that she's an escort).

I've only used a delivery health once with the JAV actress (Mika from MIFD-025), and what I did was give them the hotel room over the phone, and the girl came to my door. Once you let the girl in, they usually call someone at their shop to let them know that they've arrived and that they are okay.

I'll go to Himeji today, ate takoyaki in Mamba (huge meme)
for all the anons: NEVER buy sim cards at the airport is a huge fucking scam. Went to Bic camera today and they cost 1/3 of the price I paid.
I wanted to buy a sim with a japanese phone number but they told me tourist sim don't have phone number. sounds like bullshit to me.
Tonight I'll watch Nippon football match.
still no luck with Jap qts, today I saw a girl watching slam dunk on the metro, I wanted to approach her but she got off immediately the next station.
I keep seeing mayos with qt azn gfs, where the fuck is mine then AAAAAAA

Grand Seiko were around 500k yen at Bic camera. I saw an awesome Seiko Chrono with panda dial and it was 60k. If I were you I'd buy a vintage King Seiko, great manual winding movement and way cheaper than GS.

unilimited data sim without phone number. NTT NOCOMO.

Miyajima was cool for a few hours, but I enjoyed Hiroshima a bit more. Checked out the red light district there and got invited by a few of the tenchos for their soaplands, but I decide to hold off. I probably should have taken one for the team.
>>
>>2363642
I'll go tomorrow to Miyagima/Hiroshima. I didn't want to go to see the meme torii but a guy told me it was awesome and I want to eat oysters.
As for Himeji, it's just 1h from Kyoto, the castle it was ok (beautiful on the outside, totally empty on the inside), for 50¥ more you can buy a special ticket and visit Koko-en park which was worth it.

>>2363779
I go to at least 1 every visit and I've never needed to know any Japanese. Some places will upsell you on translation services (google translate) to communicate with the girls but you can just do that yourself lol. The biggest issue you'll face is trying to get Japanese prices as a gaijin, especially if you can't speak the language.
>Dress nicely
>Shave
>Don't look shady
>Wander around during non-peak times when people are working
>Have door-men bring you in
>Use google translate or deepL to negotiate
>Expect to pay at least an extra 10k ($100) on door prices
The managers will try to strongarm you into spending more and will literally take girls off the table you can't afford. Though, they do actually let you haggle (or at least have in my case). I have gotten into places for 35k yen for 120mins, though, the girl was a bit on the menhera side. There are cheaper places, but the places I went to were in Yoshiwara. There was this bunny soapland in Ikebukuro I forget what it's called, and that was only 20k yen for 90mins. Though, the ladies skewed older (and by older I mean like 25+ so not really).

Kinda wondering this as well, though I'm from EU, I honestly don't know how it works. I already had an experience, bought a not-cheap-at-all camera lens tax free, cashier added a little paper clipped on my passport, which I'm supposed to present to some guy at the airport when leaving. I did so, the guy looked at it, teared out the clipped paper, and let me go.
??? what's the point of this

>Consumption Tax Exempt for Tourist (nonresidents/Visitors)
>When you depart from Japan, please go to the Customs counter and complete the relevant procedures. You are required to submit the purchased commodities and your passport to the Customs officer. Please note that there is a document entitled “Covenant of Purchaser of Consumption Tax-Exempt of Ultimate Export” attached in your passport, do not tear off it before you submit to Customs.

Really stupid question but SEA or Japan first? Never been to Asia, want to see all of SEA, but worried that I'll visit Japan and my only thought while in SEA will be "I can't wait for another 90 day stay in Japan"
>>
>>2364264
Definitely Japan first. Japan is orderly, clean, and has rules. Most of SEA is the wild fucking west by comparison and if you got enough money you can get away with literal murder.
>>
>>2364266
My logic for Japan first is that I MIGHT get there before it re-opens to the Chinese and also there's a limited amount of time I can spend in Japan in my lifetime. My logic for SEA first is that I'll dread being in the wild west after Japan sets expectations for me. It's not the first time I've left my country, I've been to the Caribbean before, but a bunch of touristy stops in Costa Maya is not the same as roughing it in Vietnam like a pseudo-local.

ehh the third thing is only partly true. its not so much that there is dangerous stuff to do, its that the Thais expect you to not be retarded when doing something. IE, say you wanted to go to the shifter cart track (these things do upwards of 45 mph). Thats cool, you can do that. You can also get sloppy drunk before you do and they won't care. If you drunkenly crash and hurt yourself, well thats your problem.

If you are stupid enough to volunteer for an exhibition kick boxing match with a Thai dude, don't complain when you get your head caved in.

Or if you are holding a baby tiger for a selfie, be gentle and respectful of the animal instead of being a retard and trying to scratch its belly like its and actual cat because despite its small size its still a fucking tiger and can fuck you up.

you know, stuff like that.
