I spent a lengthy amount of time in Japan this past year, 2 months in September and I just got home from another two months March-May. I spent quite a bit of time in lesser-known areas and wanted to share some of my favorite spots if you are looking to experience Japan with fewer tourists.

>Overall favorite prefectures:
-Hokkaido: so much nature, incredible skiing, not touristy.

-Aomori: there isn’t much to do in the city of Aomori, but taking a road trip an hour outside gets you to a lot of really amazing places (Takayama Inari Shrine, tsuru no maishashi bridge, Cape Tappi)

-Fukuoka: I loved this place so much because I visited during full bloom of cherry blossoms. Truly a stunning sight.

-Fukui: arguably my #1 favourite. I think I noticed one other foreigner during my entire time there, and the attractions there are so unmatched. This prefecture is dinosaur-themed, with huge statues of dinosaurs outside Fukui station, since it has the most dino bones than any other part of Japan.


>Unique indoor attractions only in Japan that are actually worth visiting:
-Art aquarium in Ginza, Tokyo

-Nebuta Museum Wa Rasse, Aomori

-Observation decks were my FAVORITE! Tokyo Skytree, JR T38 in Sapporo, and Fukuoka tower were my top 3.

>Places that you CANNOT MISS if you want to see real Japan:

-Echizen Daibutsu, Fukui: it houses the largest inside statue of Buddha in Japan, and it took my breath away. The temple grounds are beautiful and you can get a bird’s eye view of Fukui from the pagoda.

-Lake Toya, Hokkaido: renting a car for this IS WORTH IT! It is a two hour drive from Sapporo. Toya is a volcanic caldera lake and the sights were, literally, some of the best I’ve seen in Japan.

-Mount Aso, Kumamoto: I did this with public transportation from Kumamoto city, but renting a car would save both time and a headache.
-Matsushima Bay, Miyagi: Known as one of the top 3 views in all of Japan, it is 260 small islands off the coast of Miyagi..

Would I be able to stick to 100€ per day for daily accommodations and food ?
Going to restaurant once to twice per day, using private rooms (hotels, capsules, love hotels, in hostels (private rooms still)).. What do you think?
I'm aiming to stay around 30-45 days in Japan, and I'm not counting transport of course (trains and busses, no car), and not the plane tickets(already budgeted).
Thanks ^^

She was 26 and on our fourth date (really our third “official” date) she asked if I wanted to take a rest. I agreed but clarified that I didn’t want to do penetration with someone I still didn’t know very well so we agreed on sumata instead. At some point she ended up on top and just straight up slid it in.

100 euros a day would be more than enough, you're probably not staying downtown. Osaka would be much easier.

Pork ramen/beefbowls/lunch special will be about 680-1000 depending where you go
Often can get a late night Kobini meal for discount being from 500-800 yen
Drink beers before bars from 711 to reduce costs
Use day passes for the trains around town
Use your passport for discounts at some places like museums
Use bus services to get around between cities Willer offers a pass for about 10k yen and can be used for 3 cities

>>
>>2666876
Yea it's rather low, I could up to 110€ per day, if I wanna go for at least 30 days.
The heaviest weight is where to sleep, it's giving me headaches... Some say APA hotels are not worth it, but besides Toyoko and some capsule, what are the cheaper options, nation wide, anyway? My only three only needs are : Private ,clean and silent room.

>>2666881
Nice, thanks for the reply.
>Pork ramen...depending where you go
I've heard there can be some nice and cheap places, and that the choice is large (at least in big cities like Tokyo)
>Often can get a late night Konbini meal for discount being from 500-800 yen
Yes , but aren't konbinis open 24/7? So I have say from 7pm up to 12pm to grab (lowered around every hour... I guess?) to get some, then at midnight they get the meals off to the trash, or before midnight?
>Drink beers before bars from 711 to reduce costs
I'm aware you are allowed to drink alcohol outside (not moving), but is it not frowned upon, even on a bench, not close to lots of people?
>Use day passes for the trains around town
Yea that's my biggest task: I don't know how to organize my trip... yet ><" . I wanna go to the Tokyo Game Show, but I willl land about 15 days prior, so it leaves me time to do stuff in Tokyo; after the TGS, I wanna head maybe from north to south (like Sapporo 3-4 days, Aomori 3-4 days, around Kitakata 2 days, Osaka 5-10 days, Hiroshima 4-5 days, I don't know yet for the whole).
>Use your passport for discounts at some places like museums
I'm aware of duty free things to keep new and sealed, but wasn't aware that you could get discounts in some places (plus they usually are from free to around Y1000, right?)
>Use bus ....can be used for 3 cities
Since JR Pass exploded, seems the only reasonable option... but I need to ponder trains too, they can be nearly as cheap as busses (by Y1500, right?), and organize that too... So much stress to do all this ><"

>Some say APA hotels are not worth it,
I am at an APA hotel right now. The room is small and the bathroom is cramped. Your luggage will have to be shoved underneath the bed and unless requested, they only do mandatory cleaning every three days (otherwise, they hang an amenity bag in front of your room with toothbrush, slippers, etc.). However, my priority is cost and distance to a station, so it is good enough for me. However, if you're a big guy with claustrophobia, then I suggest somewhere else

Returning from my first trip to Japan has me slightly depressed.

I'm a moderately experienced traveler and I've visited countries on four continents now. Japan was the first place I've ever visited where I had a deep sense that this was somewhere much nicer than where I would be going home to. I feel like the most obvious city to compare Tokyo with is New York, and holy shit Tokyo is miles better than New York in every way that I can think of. I feel like I've acquired a mild inferiority complex at how much better everything seemed there. I just wish that people in America could be a bit more like the people in Japan. Polite, conscientious, friendly, everyone was great. Been back a few days and all I can think about is how much I miss it.

Please tell me that it's only because I was there as a tourist and that actually living there is shit.
>>
>>2666945
I feel the same way. Travelled all over the world most of my life and japan kind of has the top spot. Everyone says shit like "oh work culture is absolute shit" and the like, but I'd be perfectly happy to jist have my own place with no one bothering me.
I do have a question though: with the influx of foreigners, will more institutions (hospital, police, banks, ect) need more translation? I might be retiring (very) early from injury and have plenty in the bank to be comfortable for a while. Just wondering if they would even consider me with my barely passable japanese.
>>
>>2666880
heck why can’t I have this?
>>
>>2666868
>>2666861
im about to but not for an investment, its literally cheaper for me to take a loan and mortgage than pay rent. So I'm doing it just for a place to live not as an investment. It also helps to have an ADULT Japanese GF/wife (as in over 22) to help manage the nip parts of the process.
>>2666869
Okinawans, im still salty about having to leave the Oki girl I was dating, they are far superior to mainlanders in almost every way. Her dad was also hilarious and would always try to embarrass me/her in a joking way by saying something raunchy
>>
>>2666951
>>2666945
I'm here as an expat but with the DoD so its not like I'm working with/for the Japanese.

Living here as a single person is pretty awesome and if you get tired of it, you have options to escape (i.e SEA, Taiwan and South Pacific) if you get tired of Japan.
Learning Japanese imo is a must because otherwise you just fuck yourself.
>>
>>2666966
sell me on okinawans, why are they better?
>>
>>2666977
well the negative is they are generally more Americanized and wise to the usual Nampa games Japs do. But on the plus side that usually means language is not so much an issue.

They are generally way chiller and not as uptight (not sexually but like the whole Japanese work culture) as mainlanders . They actually have asses, fitte and I personally think they are better looking. From a wife POV family is a big deal and having a family support is pretty much the norm. I don't feel like walking on eggshells around them.

Tl;dr Japanese wife w/o a lot of the usual Japanese woman negatives.

>>
>>2666933
>>2666936
Yea the prices seem like a no brainer to me. I don't mind the small room, I won't do the trip only in one hotel, even in Tokyo.
By the way, I stay a minimum of 15 days in Tokyo,and always more then 2 days in other cities, and I wanted to change hotels every couple of days, to experience different wards... Is that a bad idea? This needs organization I'm aware... Do love hotels still don't accept reservation (like from months in advance to a couple of days prior) ?? Is agoda good enough to reserve rooms? And can you still reserve the old still way (in person at the counter) ??
>>
>>2666988
Okinawa is nice if you consider that is basically is Japan version of Hawaii.
Also the locals are too Americanized meaning the local women act alot like Asians stateside do.

If it's only for sleeping, APA is sufficient. Clean rooms with good amenities. Tiny, but you're not there for much of a day anyway

If you are solo traveling, a business hotel like APA is all you need even with a large suitcase. It may prevent you from opening the bathroom door all the way but just put it in the lil hallway.
How fat or introverted do you have to be to want anything else than a place to sleep + privacy.

>>2666951
I don't think the influx of foreigners is a permanent thing, it's still so hard for anyone to actually settle in Japan long-term and they aren't going to change that.
Like with the stuff about Indian students, after 2 years their visa will be up and I highly doubt they'd want to stay in Japan, just because the culture is so diametrically opposed. Also a lot of my friends who have moved to Japan have ended up returning, the feelings of isolation and language issues got to them eventually.

Yeah, it's why I just ignore racebaiting and complaints about Japanese getting 'diluted.' People will stay for a little bit but like 0.01% of all the foreigners going over there will stay, you have to be a different level of crazy to want to stay there.
My buddy was using Bumble for our entire trip in April and he only matched with Chinese girls, so I think you're right. Japanese girls care a lot about stability and actually being able to communicate with their partners, all the white guys with Japanese wives I've bet can at least speak a little bit of Japanese. The simple fact is that Japanese women will 9 out of 10 times prefer a Japanese man. And if you're a loser in your own country, you're not going to suddenly become a player in Japan unless you're truly some kind of otherworldly ikemen.
>>
>>2666854
Mount Aso might be my favorite place in Japan. I can recomend it not highly enough. Kumamoto is a nice area in general. Just be carefull the last bus down from the valcano is pretty early.
>>
>>2667120
Maybe if your fat, ugly and refuse to speak any Japanese. It was never SEA easy (no Japanese girls except mentally ill ones will EVER approach or make first move). Then again there's always a desperate 26 to 30+ Hanako or Aimichan at the local HUB or other standing/gaijin bar if you really are just a coomer that wants to get his dick wet. Also there's nothing really "magical" about Japanese women other than they are on average hotter and little more sexually open than mainland Chinese.

>>2667151
I guess it's perception, even the Japanese girls that are into Japanese guys have told me the biggest issue is Japanese guys don't really know how to show emotion or treat women like shit.

I take this with a grain of salt becuase these were the same girls addicted to host club guy fantasies and were talking to me becuase they saw a forginer as status symbol or an acceptable emotional dump.
>>
>>2667159
>becuase they saw a forginer as status symbol or an acceptable emotional dump.
Yeah this is a thing that happens definitely. The girls I've dated have openly said that it's because I'm a little more "open" (in other words, I don't know the culture fully, so I fuck up and often unwittingly ignore/just don't follow norms they're used to).
Japanese girls are alright, I just like when women speak to me in Japanese, especially something like Osaka ben. I find it very cute. It also helps that all the girls I've met have either been from the inaka originally or are just very simple, and not at all interested in just fucking. I mean there are girls like that in my home country too but I find the culture kind of lacking here, Japanese girls are a nice opportunity to have someone guide you in another culture and way of life.

yeah I've spent about half a year total and I'm realizing how much nicer America would be if it weren't for all the [redacted] and [redacted]. you can't even just go back to Europe anymore because now they're importing [redacted]. and if you're Asian whatever your home country is is probably some shithole on the verge of poverty or war. it's pretty bleak to desire a more beautiful and harmonious society that works especially well for the best and brightest instead of always stooping to the level of the lowest common denominator. the hulking blob of "humanity" who really only exists to eat fast food and reproduce haphazardly.

>>2667061
there are tons of different little rules, it's hard to explain in one post. I recommend reading pic related, and learn as much of the language as you can. but remember this above all else: "the hammer that sticks out gets nailed down." japanese value meekness and falling in to line more than any other country I know. just follow the lead of the other japanese people and you'll be okay. Japanese people, unlike Americans, very rarely say what they are feeling directly. an American when they're tired of you will say "well you better go home now." a japanese person will, when tired of your company, make you tea and expect you to understand this is the implication for you to head back.

I spent $2k USD for one month total on housing, food, transportation and entertainment and had a fantastic time, but I'm a cheapskate and don't enjoy the "finer things in life". if you like going exploring and meeting friends and drinking especially you can do all of this very cheaply in Japan if you put in the effort. it's super cheap for Americans right now.

Osaka for hundreds of years has been known as the economic center of Japan, populated mostly by the merchant class. Do you really think that they didn't trade with outsiders, and we're open to different customs. Japan has been multicultural for a long time. Every city is different. The only people that say otherwise, are the ones that gotta zoom zoom around to another place every two days and never truly observe and learn.

like I said read the book because there are too many to count. but probably the most important one that Americans especially fuck up is to just talk quietly. you have to use what Americans call "inside" voice. I have many American friends and they just fucking scream all the god damn time at the top of their lungs. the exception to this rule is when it's late at night and everyone is drunk. getting drunk is the cultural escape hatch for the japanese.

Yes in typical nip fashion rules for me and rules for thee.

All the bitching about tourists the no.1 fuck ups and people being loud, or creepy to women are other Japanese not Tourists, with the possible exception of mainland Chinese and Russians.

I don't follow any *rules* other than talking on the phone in a crowded train otherwise idgaf. Also so many Americans have this werid thing about rules here like they are stepping on egg shells. I can assure you the average Japanese doesn't give a fuck. I haven't changed anything that I've done in the states other than eating or talking on the cellphone when walking but that's a product of my past military background.
Also since everyone hete is a coomer, the best Japanese lays are those in the alt fashion and culture sphere. The girls into that music, fashion even anime are not into stuck up conformity and you won't get to be with them if you try to emulate the typical nip bugman drone.

For the record this isn't a ticket to act like an ass but my point is you don't need to be werid about it.

It's either in absolutely shit confition OR requires renovations to update to current natural disaster standards (read: costs alot in the end) OR it's reasonably priced and in good condition, but the catch is that you have to personally live in it, all year round, for up to or at least 10 years.
They're called bad becasue for most people they are bad

>I've never known Americans to be loud
Are you yourself perhaps an American?
Have you set foot outside of America, ever?

>>2667441
Yeah I realized there's no point trying to autistically conform to every nip rule when they also fundamentally exclude you from society in the first place. I'll speak the language and be polite because I'm not a nigger but I'm never going to try to be a model minority or pretend I can be a nip.
Also I have my own personal semen demon that's coming with me so I'm not really interested in fucking, but do you have any recommendations for good gyms/yoga/pilates places in the area by chance? She likes to workout and I want to keep supporting that
Also best supermarkets for high quality meat? Price is not an issue as I'm making a lot more money than the average nip

Etiquette-anon here.

Thank you for the recommendation on the book. I'll give it a listen.

I kind of find it ironic, I expect to feel a bit more comfortable in Japan, than in my home town / country. Weirdly my anxiety and over composition for my autism might help me fit in that same sort of culture lol.

I have heard of that with the tea, or that you're supposed to refuse something three times before accepting as a sign of respect, or is it to give the impression of humility? Either way, will do my best to do as Roman's do and hope they forgive any unintentional faux pas.

Thank you again for the serious recommendation and advice.

Is it possible to turn Japan into a sort of part-time home away from home? All of the gaijin I’ve seen that end up happy in Japan long-term are all-in full-time in Japan. I’m thinking about buying a house but I don’t want to regret it because I’m not all-in.

They're making it easier. The blue collar visas are now renewable and have other perks I forgot about.
>>
>>2667490
For real? Surely there must be some language requirement though. Otherwise if there isn't, then that "dilution" might become an issue.
>>
>>2667496
Ah, one of the other perks was dropping the language requirement kek
https://www.mofa.go.jp/mofaj/ca/fna/ssw/us/overview/
>>
>>2667501
Yeah, I just read about this too. Tl;dr, it's still pretty difficult for the (i) visa, as the language requirements is still there, plus it's 5 years maximum. The (ii) visa without the Japanese language requirement is permanent but is only for two very specific industries, and the technical exams people have to do still have a very high fail rate.
I don't think this is going to have much of an impact, because there's not much that will attract people to a place like Japan unless they already have an interest in the language, place or culture to begin with. So people like that wouldn't really cause any issues.

>>2667505

Back when I was reading about this, I think I did hear very few (ii) visas were ever issued.

Holy fucking shit. I just did one of the most basic autistic things I can do with my Japan Rail Pass and got all the station stamps of all the stations on the Yamanote Line. And I only wasted four hours of my life that I couldn't do anything else with because Tokyo doesn't bother opening up shops until 11 am

>>2667630
You know they don't charge you until you exit the final station, right? you could do a complete loop in 4h, ride one station further and get charged 200 yen
>>
>>2667635
NTA but I'm pretty sure that the stamp stand are always at the hall area, past the gates, so you have to pay
4 years later, my bro still hates the sentence "sumimasen, gandamu no stampu?"
>>
>>2667635
I don't get it. I have to exit the station either way because all the JR stations have their stamps outside the station and near their ticket area (with some places like Shinjuku and Shibuya have theirs in the JR office which was annoying)

Those girls are usually the type to get hooked and addicted into host clubs and they are super androgynous.
This girl I was dating was hopelessly addicted to them and kept going to them even after I said I wasn't cool with it if she actually wanted a relationship. Also I think my shitty Japanese doesn't help either.

For the record Im make over 100kUSD living in Japan and own a home here. Call me a simp I was willing to let her live with me rent free. I dated her because she was cute and her friend (who is hot and of the few Japanese girls you could say was bredpilled to the bugmen culture, just was already in a relationship) trying to help break her friends addiction and get her to be social with real people. I honestly feel bad she's just a hairstylist and doesn't make alot of money and easily has spent over ¥100k a night at these fuckboy placed. The level of manipulation is real but she's also dumb as fuck.
What surprises me the most is how these places affect women more than men.

Tl;dr
Japanese girls into J Fashion can be dumb as bricks. Host clubs are just legalized romance scams.
>>
>>2667765
>but she's also dumb as fuck.
why were you even dating her?
>>
>>2667765
Do they not know that American "tough" guys are very romantic and don't want or need any money.
>>
>>2667766
Thinking with my dick honestly also her friend a mutual friend of my cowoker (unlike her has her head on her shoulders) was desperately trying to get me to date her to get her out of a bad place and knew I was a good guy.

I wasn't mad becuase I figured she only wanted sex for the novelty of a forginer and was only into Japanese guys. What got me was the fact that you pay money as a woman to dudes for "not sex" (though reality they do) when I was basically free. The more I dug into the whole industry the more I discovered how it's basically male Jigalos conning girls into becoming Hookers of if their lucky AV stars.

>>2667771
There's alot of things that don't make sense here I just live with it.
>>2667587
Japanese guys rarely seethe on White man/Japanese couples and Nampa game. Except maybe some really bitter incel otaku types. If anything at standing bars I've had Japanese guys try and help me get with Japanese girls. Likewise the whole English Teacher fantasy is real here so I try and payback in kind in introducing the typical American Fujoshi language school weeb. It definitely feels good becuase there are genuine nice single Japanese guys but they have no game and are shy especially around westerners.

Now Korean men on the other hand will go into autistic fits reeee if they see you holding hands with Korean woman. Fuck Korea only place I actually got aggro for being a forginer.
>>
>>2667740
honestly I hadn't even considered that
>>
>>2667775
Yeah at least Japanese just politely make it clear they don't want to deal with forginers. Koreans can on occasion go out of their way to be dickheads.

I think this is a terrible idea. Think about it this way, if you're going to different wards, it will be a hassle to transfer location every two-ish days or whatever you have planned. Besides, even if you're going to different wards, a few days isn't enough to give you the experience of the ward itself. Maybe a month, but a few days? Nah. Also, the time it takes you to relocate you mind as well take the train or subway to the ward itself. You waste nearly the same amount of time.
>Do love hotels still don't accept reservation (like from months in advance to a couple of days prior) ??
This I don't know.
>Is agoda good enough to reserve rooms?
I only use agoda and I have never had a bad experience with it, so it is good enough for me, I used it to quickly book a room in Kyoto the other day.
>And can you still reserve the old still way (in person at the counter) ??
I don't think so. Tokyo, Kyoto, etc. is just too popular of a destination. Maybe this is just me, but I think asking a person at the counter might only be doable if you're going to some really really out of ways places like....I don't know, Ehime or Aomori or someplace that isn't a foreigner tourist hotspot.

I got a question about the level of tourists flooding there, are they or unpredictable and if they seem negros do you need a gun or a baseball bat just to walk around the place safe? I noticed these tourist scum approve of random violence, so that means we are gonna get more security and keep it that way. Alcohol is also off the menu.

This, didn't realize how hard we are being scammed until I got a local jap friend to book hotels for me in their area. Much bigger than most biz hotels and had a dryer/washer in the room + full kitchen for 3000yen/night

If you start missing the taste of home and wish to cheaply purchase imported foreign food and drinks in Japan, I recommend shopping at Gyomu Super, wholesaler of imported food that is open to both food service professionals and general customers, and Seijo Ishii, Japan's largest import grocery chain that is owned by Lawson. I also want to mention Niku no Hanamasa, which is a wholesaler that specializes in fresh fruit, meat, and vegetables while Gyomu Super specializes in dry goods, frozen food and microwavable meals.

Man, that sucks. I've just been pre-booking places on booking.com to avoid overpaying due to surge pricing, since I'll be in Japan during Obon. I just like having that security too of knowing accommodation is taken care of, also helps budgeting to know beforehand exactly how much I'm paying. Realistically, if I don't have a jap friend to book the places for me, what are my options besides using booking.com? I'm just worried that if I don't prebook and then try to walk in to a hotel I might not be able to find a place all that easily or for cheap. The places I've booked so far range from about 2500 yen per night to just under 6000 yen per night, so overall fairly cheap in my opinion.

I got an airbnb within a 15 minute walk of the Yamanote line for $1400 USD per month. That left about $20 USD or $3k JPY per day to spend on fun. If I wanted to go on a little trip I'd spend all the money on the ticket. If I wanted to go to a nice restaurant there was plenty to eat for $3k yen, really good stuff. If I wanted to go out and drink I'd just starve myself smoking cigarettes during the day then get into a club for $1k or $2k yen and spend the rest on drinks.

Tokyo is super cheap right now. I definitely didn't gain any weight when I was on my trip and I probably lost a few brain cells but it was certainly fun, can't complain about that.

Nta but I personally don't see anything wrong with having a fetish for Japanese women or yellow fever. I just make it point that it's not just coomer antics. There pluses and minus to being in Japan and you just need to accept that as part of the deal.

I belive just like the other expats here, you need to have you shit down in your own life and use the western aspects of yourself that are desirable to Japanese women like personal affection, putting women first etc.
It's not uncommon there are alot of mix couples here, my best friend here is Hafu.

My issue with American women is they are unhealthy and have high rates of mental illness. Those that aren't are less common and unless your giga chad you won't date them. Jap girls can be the same mentally but the hardest barrier is language.

Also ffs learn Japanese it's not hard...

For Thee Michelle Gun Elephant fans, the band purchased all their tailored suits from Yofuku no Namiki

Tokyo tailoring legend Namiki Yuzo passed away on May 12, 2011. Although never a major presence in Japan’s fashion world nor well-known in the broader culture, his shop Yofuku no Namiki (洋服の並木) in Umegaoka was renowned in music and showbiz circles for being the place where young punk, mod, and rock bands and comedians could make eccentric, matching suits to wear on stage.

Yofuku no Namiki offered custom suits of virtually any historical style — tight 60s British mod three-buttons, long-coated Edwardian Teds’ get-ups, zoot-suits, 1970s monstrosities with giant lapels — starting at a mere ¥39,900. Everything about Namiki’s store was different from his contemporaries. Most suit tailors fill their windows with alluring bolts of wool but Yofuku no Namiki’s glass porch doors are plastered randomly with faded color photo copies of bands he had clothed. The store’s interior could be most charitably described as a mini-warehouse of deadstock fabrics chaotically stacked up against each other. Yellowing copies of Men’s Club sat on the ground to be picked up by customers as style guides.

At the price you paid, you put up with weird conventions in Namiki’s work: costume-grade fabrics, extreme shoulder padding, a demand to write a word of your choosing inside of the jacket. But the store offered an incredible dream: you could make anything your heart desired for less than ¥40,000.

Hello, some questions for you, sir/ma'am. In Hokkaido, is Sapporo a tourist town worth visiting, or should I not waste my time? I was planning on visiting Wakkanai, specifically on Cape Soya, but Hokkaido did not impress me with the places it has to visit, most of northern Japan did not seem impressive, if I'm being honest. I can't eat seafood, and I don't drink, so I'm considering eliminating Hokkaido entirely from my trip plans. Am I making a mistake?

> Aomori
I was planning on stopping by this city exclusively to visit the Takayama Inari Shrine. How much of a hassle is it to get there, and was it worth it? I also heard it's 80 dollars for a bus round trip to see the shrine, so I've been considering skipping Aomori for budget reasons.

As for visiting in general, what was the weather like in each month you visited, and did you notice any difference as far as crowds and prices go? I've been planning on visiting in November to try and avoid the crowdier and more tourist trap-y months, but is it even worth it? I know to avoid golden week and sakura blossoms, at the very least.

>>
>>2668685

>>2668682

>>
>>2668749
>>2668749
The northern part is very rural and full of natural sites. There's so many I can't list them all since it's everything from hiking, waterfalls/kayaking and lots of things to do.

I wouldn't knock the south, the area around white beach Naval Base is really nice (that photo I posted).

I would highly recommend you rent a car becuase the public transit is very limited
>>
>>2668117
Most people here in the US tend to just wear whatever with clothes that don't match at all. I guess it's a consequence of not giving a shit when most of the time is spent driving place to place instead of walking. Also even basic decent clothes are stupid expensive despite have shit quality (looking at you, Zara)

You already look like a Westerner by not looking Asian and not speaking Japanese, so just wear whatever looks nice. Japanese people wear a bunch of variety (including caps, beanies, jeans etc.) not just baggy shit (which they don't get from Uniqlo btw).

That's probably not enough to get hooked up with randos though idfk just be rich I guess or be born with good facial genes
>>
>>2668761
So you're supposed to dress well when you're walking everywhere, and sweating profusely.
>>
Also don't wear baggy stuff if you are over like 25. It's cringe. The western equivalent is roasties still trying to dress like teens
>>
>>2668766
You should wear more loose clothing, or lose some weight, fatso. Shorts and short sleeved shirts aren't banned in Japan, you know.

And yes, a lot of people do. When the weather was transitioning to spring, people were still wearing winter shit (at least in Tokyo) despite hitting like 80F. Was kinda ridiculous desu
>>
>>2668767
It all depends on your body size and facial features. Gotta work with what the cruel goddess gave you
>>
>>2668769
It's not that I'm fat. It's that walking slowly is bad for you. It makes you use muscles that aren't designed for propulsion. So go ahead, ruin your body for vanity.

Hey, it's not me you gotta convince. You can take this advice and shove it up your ass for all I care.

I was just there for 3 days. I think its an underrated tourist city. Perfect for 2~ days. Locals were very friendly and liked to see a white gaijin there. Things I did:
-tower
-walk park that cuts through whole city
-park behind castle
-castle
-"Central Park" underground city and go on top of the "spaceship" (look it up)
-Nagoya Dragons Baseball game (favorite thing)
-port area + ride Ferris Wheel
-miso pork tankatsu (place in bottom of Nagoya station was recommended to me by a native salary man in Tokyo and was one of the best of my trip)
-misan ramen shop for their spicy Taiwan noodles

Its not an amazing 10/10 city but its a slower mega city and a good break between Tokyo and wherever your next busy stop is

Did you guys know that Akira Toriyama's favorite pasta restaurant is Aiueo (店麺多房 あいうえお)

After receiving the news of Akira Toriyama's passing, Tatsuyoshi Nagata (72), owner of the Tenmentabo Aiueo restaurant in Nagoya and who had a friendship with Toriyama, brings a surprising revelation.

Founded 43 years ago and known for its generous pasta dishes and Japanese cuisine, Aiueo received a visit from Toriyama-san on July 8, 1984, through a mutual acquaintance. Nagata remembers the meeting well: "He was about 1.85 meters tall and looked like Antonio Inoki. I would never have imagined that he would become so famous. He seemed to really enjoy our main dish, Basil and Bacon Peperoncino."

Although this was the only time Toriyama went to the restaurant, they continued to keep in touch after that. But the real surprise lies in the following statement from Nagata: “When Akira Toriyama finished Dr. Slump, there was a pause, and while he was thinking about what he would do next, he traveled to China for inspiration. When he returned, he showed me a drawing saying, "This will be the next [work]!’ He made this illustration for me before Dragon Ball was published.”

In other words, Nagata received an illustration of Dragon Ball before its official publication in Shonen Jump! As mentioned, Toriyama only visited the restaurant on July 8, 1984, but Dragon Ball was only published in November 1984. Toriyama drew Goku, now on display in the restaurant, just to show Nagata what his new work would be like! Despite this precious treasure, nothing makes up for the loss of someone so admirable. Nagata laments, "I wish he could have overwhelmed the world for a little while longer. We lost a valuable person."

Kissa Mountain ( 喫茶マウンテン ) is a coffee cafe located in Takikawacho, Showa Ward, Nagoya, an area known for being a student town with many nearby universities. Located a 10 minute walk from Irinaka Station on the Subway Tsurumai Line and an 8 minute walk from Yagoto Nika Station on the Subway Meijo Line, Kissa Mountain is a popular cafe always seen with a line full of people coming from all over the country and often featured in media like TV shows. What made this store so famous is its menu of weird food that you will never see in normal restaurants, and there are no other words to describe them than absolutely crazy! There are a number of dishes that you can not really imagine by hearing just their name, like "sweet strawberry pasta" or "squid ink shaved ice". Don't be hesitant to stop by because there are also normal dishes like curry or spaghetti with tomato sauce.

Kissa Mountain has created more than 300 kinds of impressive weird foods, including sweet spaghetti with fruits and whipped cream. People who can finish these strange dishes are supposedly rare, and in line with the name of the store "Mountain", repeating fans will refer to giving up halfway as "getting lost" and to finish the whole dish as "reaching the summit".

What is there to do in Kamakura besides going to the temple with the daibutsu and the temple/garden next to it? I already visited it and Enoshima last year and loved the big temple and garden in Kamakura but I'm considering going straight to Enoshima for a day this summer so I can have enough free time to visit it more before restaurants and cafes close down for the day. I'm considering using the escalator to climb the big hill with the garden next time, my legs were killing me when I climbed the whole thing by foot last year. Is the aquarium in Enoshima worth it too or should I skip it?

Kanazawa got several universities, so there's plenty of students. Young people from Tokyo also visit it.
People are really nice and chill there. There's two old districts, that's where the tourists are most of the time. Also some really nice temples, craftsmanship and food. There's a great market you can go to, the crab is delicious.
Night life is nice, there's tons of little bars.
The town is right next to the sea, but it's kinda hard to go there, and I don't think there's any beaches. It's also near Noto peninsula, but there was a big earthquake in january, do I guess most old cities and onsen got destroyed.
I fucking love this city.

Yes, that one.
Kyoto is okay if you avoid the overly touristy stuff. I did plenty of things there last year, and only Inari and Kiyomizudera were absolutely awful. The herds of brainless tourists can't process the rest, and never diverge from the tourists paths. This year seems to be particularly dreadful, though.
But if you want to explore Kanazawa, two nights there is good.

I was advanced open water when I dove there, the currents are pretty strong and the company I went with did make me do an intro dive first to make sure I was not a retard, your best bet is to actually reach out to one of the dive shops there and ask what they will want to take you, keeping in mind the currents and stuff can also vary seasonally. Great experience though, which I dived on the other two islands you mentioned but only so much time and decompression before flights.

An ESL teacher specifically might not be a huge downgrade. I think if you can apply to an international school, you'll escape a lot of the "dancing monkey" BS that ALTs have to do. You have the credentials to apply as a teacher on your own merits, you're not just a warm body who speaks English and has a Bachelor's like the ALT masses.
The thing about becoming an ALT specifically is you might get HS, but you could get middle or elementary school as well. That's a downgrade for you for sure. I know some people who applied to various private and international schools as an English teacher as itself, not an ALT, and they did pretty well.

Nah, take the Asanogawa Line of the Hokuriku Tetsudō to Uchinada station, and there's a great beach right there. People love surfing around that area, and if you go a little north there's also one of Japan's best driving beaches as well.

You're supposed to ride in the street in some places but people don't really mind. Basically if you're in a residential neighborhood and there's enough room go ahead and ride on the sidewalk. As always in Japan, do as the Japanese do. If you see some Japanese doing something, go ahead and do it too.

If you are already an American college lecturer, shouldn't you be taking advantage of your college's alumni network or bureaucracy to see if anybody at your college could help you land a job in Japan by writing letters of recommendation for you, calling or emailing their friends in Japan, etc. After all, it barely makes sense to ask the travel board for advice on how to become a college professor in Japan.

So is there any way to increase your chances of teaching high school? I checked some postings online and they don’t even list the grades.

>>2669154
It’s extremely difficult to get a posting at any university, let alone a Japanese one and without being fluent. I don’t see that happening unless it’s like Temple Japan or something and they currently have no good openings.


>>2669166
Economics so technically STEM but not really

>>2669169
I wasn’t able to find anyone in my network with any Japanese experience or connections, but it doesn’t really work like that anyway. I’m not a full-time lecturer. I’m basically a full-time staff member working on university operations and then I also lecture part-time. I figured you guys wouldn’t know much about working at a Japanese college, but as an ESL teacher? Sure.

>>2669176
Economics. I didn’t think it was that relevant because I think a college post is unrealistic.

>>2669184
Most universities don’t have a department specifically for Japanese and it would be weird for a random person at the university to contact them even if they did. They may or may not help but it’s no different than contacting a stranger.

Even though you already have an economics degree from an American university, have you ever considered doing graduate school in Japan? Since you have an economics degree, why not attend a business oriented school like Waseda University in order to get another degree and further your studies in the subject of economics?

- Waseda University offers Japan’s most extensive English-based curriculum, comprising 50 programs and over 2,400 courses in undergraduate and graduate-school programs, with plans to further expand this number. Moreover, nearly half the faculty at Waseda has acquired a degree overseas.

- Waseda admits the highest number of international students (7,122 from 110 countries and territories) among Japanese universities and has the most students participating in study abroad.

- Waseda is well-known for its diversity of students (approx. 50,000 enrolled) and wide network of outstanding alumni (over 670,000) built up over 140 years of school history.

- Waseda provides over 250 different scholarships valued at over 8.1 billion yen for 13.252 students.

- Waseda has been ranked as the No. 1 business school in Japan (Eduniversal Best Masters Rankin 2022).

Would you guys quit your jobs to tour Japan for 6 months? And maybe other places in Asia. I just turned 33 and a lot of the people I knew are getting mortgages, having kids, fancy cars etc and I'm just here like, I don't want any of that shit tying me down. I daydream all day in the office of just quitting and travelling the world. Don't get me wrong, I don't think travelling is a cure to being depressed or anything. And I'm not interested in cooming. I just hate the idea of locking myself down to paying off a house for 20 years. I feel like I just want to be happy and go on an adventure. Not spend the rest of my 30s and 40s sat looking at the same 4 walls of an office, wondering what if? I know it'll knock my finances back and my career progression to quit for a year but I really hate the whole rat race shit.

tl;dr thinking about quitting comfy job to do 6 months In Japan but I wonder if I'm too old to be taking big risks like this. have about $30k savings and that's it

Truly the partrcian way of travel in Japan is to just rent a car from a base city. I don't know why the plebs think this isn't an option.

>>2669425
Jokes aside you would think Japanese would be fastidious about getting tested. I was such a pita to get the J-girl I was cooming into tested. She was so wary of it which made me pucker up thinking I caught something. It was awkward as hell and she would only go if her friend was too.

There is a Japanese bar called Little Texas (リトルテキサス) that serves Texan cuisine in Meguro, Tokyo, Japan that also features a stage and dance floor for live music performances. In recognition of his passion and love for Texas, the owner was awarded the title of Honorary Texan by the Governor of Texas back in 2011.

Use common sense when buying Japanese knives. Do you even own a whetstone in the first place?

Release your inner sperg and don't even attempt to be polite.

I was there last week, every time one of them approached me with the "bro it's your lucky day!" I just shook my head, said "nah" and kept walking. They give up immediately.

In my old age I must have a more severe autism-stare or something because on previous overseas trips touts seemed to have bothered me way more.

Kaneso (かね惣) is not located in Kyoto but many local Japanese celebrities and YouTubers purchase their Kaneso knives in Asakusa.

Founded in 1873, Kaneso (かね惣) is a long-established Asakusa knife manufacturer located on Yanagidori near Asakusa Kaminarimon and Nakamise shopping street. The products include cooking knives, scissors, and other cutlery for professional and home use. The shop is well known and respected, all of the knives are crafted and repaired by traditional smithing and polishing techniques, and many chefs use Kaneso's knives because of their high quality and sharpness.

On the other hand, Honke Kaneso (本家かね惣 or ホンケカネソウ) is ran by the younger generation of the Kaneso founding family and only located 100 meters away from Kaneso. The differences between Kaneso and Honke Kaneso is that Kaneso has a larger collection of older knives while Honke Kaneso is more tourist friendly to the extent that they opened both an Instagram and Twitter account but since the two knife shops are so close to each other, you might as well visit both locations.

I do not recommend engraving your name on your purchased Japanese knives because it makes it more difficult to resell your Japanese knives to somebody else in the distant future.

NTA, I understand this is days old and the thread is dying but I'll offer I was in northern Japan last fall.
>Sapporo a tourist town worth visiting
Yes, other than how isolated it is from the rest of Japan and with no full shinkansen route.
>Hokkaido did not impress me with the places it has to visit
Couldn't say, didn't go any any further, but plan to return and visit more.
>most of northern Japan did not seem impressive, if I'm being honest.
Totally accurate.
>How much of a hassle is it to get there, and was it worth it?
Sounds like a scam but still cheaper than a rental car unless you're hitting up a ton of stuff. The city is an easy stop if you're already going to Hokkaido by train.
>I've been planning on visiting in November to try and avoid the crowdier and more tourist trap-y months, but is it even worth it?
You can seek fall colors, but it's difficult based on the exact area and time, we were simultaneously too early or too late depending where we were, but it won't be as crowded up there in general.

Compared to Kyoto, Seki City is much better known for its knives, which is why if you are interested in buying high quality Japanese folding knives or pocket knives, you should contact Marusho Industry ( 丸章工業 ) for both a free showroom and tour of their factory. Established in Seki in 1964, Marusho Industry ( 丸章工業 ) is best known for their Mcusta folding knives, Silky scissors, and Zanmai kitchen cutlery. Unfortunately, the American websites for Marusho Industry products are often out of date, with some not having been updated since the year 2020, so if you have any concerns or questions about Marusho Industry products or tours, you should direct your questions at Marusho Industry's Japanese websites.

I'm a big procrastinator, so I attend lectures and concentrate my study time near the the exam date.

Kind of hate the fact that every time I see a fun looking theme bar, I run the risk of it being some sort of maid Cafe or or some adjacent thing where they expect me to pay cash to have some poor girl sit next to me and pretend to talk. I just want to have drinks in a cool looking bar or have an owner that's just really into the aesthetic. Gunnie Pig I'm shinjuku was small but was perfect for this. Anything like that out here in osaka? The vampire bar was a bust (website has shit where girls 'sacrifice' you during a show or some shit). Just want cool bars to go to. If I'm paying for a girls time it's not going to be for a blowjob.
>>
>>2670080
If you have N3 or N2 already, you'd probably only manage to find work in a combini, bars are a no-go. Iirc you need to actually write out a handwritten CV and present it to places, but if random foreigners studying in language school can do it then I'm sure you can too anon.
If you have no language skills, you're kinda fucked. I guess you could just fill out your time with language school, but I'm pretty sure that's a separate visa and would make the working holiday kind of redundant.

Same thing, went last year with a friend, and even though we managed to get out several nights she always refused to go to bars with me. The last night she fell ill and refused to eat and went to sleep at 7pm, so I ended up in an indian restaurant when they were having a birthday party. Got a great meal, a free piece of birthday cake, karaoke and chatted in broken japanese/english with the owners. Great last night in Japan.
And when I think about it, I always went with either family or friends in Japan, and they always refused or were too afraid to do something else than restaurants or izakayas after 11pm.
I return this november and I'm supposed to go alone, but if a friend ends up joining me, I'll drag him to bars or finally go alone.

Be straight with my, guys. Do Japanese women make terrible wives? I'd love to marry a japanese girl so I could live in Japan on a spouse visa(also because they're cute) but I've heard so many stories online about miserable marriages to japanese wives. Dead bedrooms, control freaks, constantly nagging husbands to make more money. I've read so many horror stories compared to so few success stories. I think the only ethnicity that has a ratio nearly as bad as them are russian wives. Is it really that bad?
>>
>>2670587
You can't generalize 120 million people bucko. There's nothing too different there just have to read the room more since people won't tell you shit and rather let it fail than confront it. If you have money, it'll be fine. If you don't have money, you're screwed would be the shrimple of it. And don't start yapping about gold digging there's not a single woman who doesn't want a stable partner. You're already a liability as a foreigner due to langauge, culture & no attachement to country. If you don't have opportunities in IT I think you'll fail. Most degrees are worth less than dirt unless Ph. D. due to obvious reaosns
Eikawa/ALT is a good way to hell there's no mobility there at all and when she sees even her subhuman friend' boyfriends start earning high money she'll start to resent you.
The big issue is the foreigners are usually weirdos who think living in that shithole will save their lives. It's why you get all of these bizzare tales. the divorce rate ain't that bad compared to the native japanese or even westerners.
You're probably not going to get the cute ones I'll be frank. Don't take those videos where they say that they'd love a western man to heart it's usually bs. Most couples in interracial marraiges are about the same looks level or the western guys is really tall.

The biggest issue us language and if you can't speak Japanese it's super hard to date and have relationships with Japanese women.
If you do then it's a game changer otherwise you can't expect Japanese women to fall in your lap. Also you need to make first moves always.

Currently dating a Japanese girl. They can extremely vapid but also extremely receptive. Money is something that isn't taboo to discuss and I always have a mentality of "if I can support the needs and wants of my partner the relationship is doom to fail" but something always agreed before.

Protip, use your gaijin strengths. Alot of Japanese dudes aren't nice to women, showing non verbal affection like cooking, making her relaxed and just listening as best you can makes life so much easier her if you live in Japan.

Honestly almost everything in Shibuya, Shinjuku, and Roppongi seem like shitty gaijin bars

I'm going again to Japan this year In August but this time I'm only doing 5 days in Tokyo and then I'm going to Sapporo, are there any stops between them that has somethings nice to do or look? And any recommendations of things to do in Sapporo.

Go to Hiraizumi, Shirakami-sanchi and to the Jomon historical sites. And check out Slowboat in Sapporo it's the best jazz club in all of Japan.

Hiraizumi is shit.
>>
>>2670700
yes

Impulsively took a stroll through Namba at 10-11pm last night and found talked to the first decent 立ちんぼ I saw. The rest is history. I am indeed back.

Looks like this thread's still here, so I'll shoot – if you're looking for places in Osaka, try "Bible Club" as well. They're similarly high-concept, themed around Prohibition-era America. Pretty expensive (I felt) but the decor is spot-on.
Definitely checking out the submarine one on my next trip though for sure

Oh hey, I also play 40k and I'm going this September. Let me know what you could find or what do you recommend to buy.
>>
>>2671206
Perfect. Adding it to the list. Heading to a kinosaki ryokan for a night but I'll hit them both up when I get back.

So far found a few sprues for kit bashing and a fully intact space marine board game for like $11 despite being open in the surugaya stores. Was a good find i think. Namba warhammer store owner is super chill and loved showing off his painted emperors children, but prices are still expensive (as usual) in the actual store. He said he dosnt get much say on that sadly. If I have the packing space in the future I'd love to bring a kill team to the osaka and tokyo stores (tokyo store is huge)
>>
>>2670717
Go to social places and meet people

Nice find. And yeah, that is why I asked because at least online the prices are way more expensive than say buying directly from DGI or MM here in the states.

At least you get to say that you saw some japanese painted 40k minis and talked with fellow hobbyists.

Will definetly hit up surugaya but for other reasons, I'll keep an eye for 40k stuff.

Anyone ever join any races in Japan?

If you're going by Shinkansen to Sapporo you might want to consider checking out Matsushima Bay which is on the way if you stop at Sendai. It isn't called one of the "Three scenic views of Japan" for nothing. I was there back in 2022. It was great and free of cancerous western tourist but there's still the Chinese ones, but they're not as cancerous (although this was back in 2022)

No, but you can eat the deer in Miyajima.

Case in point. Look at this bastard and how he's just waiting in front of this restaurant just to get eaten.
>>
>>2671733
How'd he get all the way to Australia?
>>
>>2671738
Don't you know? Itsukushima Shrine have teleportation powers under certain circumstances to the native wildlife there and not because I am too lazy to get a python script to fix these orientation issues on my photos because I hate Apple. Clearly not that
