Hi guys, we have got some great flights to Osaka and was wondering how difficult and expensive it was to get to Tokyo from there. How often does the train go from Osaka to Tokyo as we could save quite alot of money if we flew into to Osaka!!

Any help would be greatly appreciatedsmile

It's going to cost alot and take a long time to get to tokyo from Osaka. It's roughly about 6 hours away by car so you may be awhile before you get to tokyo. If you want someone to show you around in downtown tokyo hit me up...

Yea i know Harajuku/Aoyoma pretty well. And Shibuya for the most part can be confusing but after learning a few landmarks its easy. I'll definitely show you around though it's not that hard. Just let me know what day you wanna meet up . Weekends are probably the best time because that's when you get to see all the good stuff drop. Anyway i can take you pretty much to OriginalFake...All Bape stores including Bape cafe, Bape cuts, Busy Work Shop, Bapexclusive Store, Apee/Bapy, Bape Kids. Billionaire Boy's club. Prada, Dior, Gucci Stussy. Undefeated. Supreme. New Era store...and some shoe spots...

My wife has found a ticket that allows us to travel on all public transport for about $280 AUD return. Its the JR 7 day rail pass????
We have booked our tickets and fly into Osaka on the 25th and then train it too Tokyo on the 26th at about 3pm. So kinda scary but what an adventure, we keep watching footage of Tokyo and the place is huge. Ripped out the old F&F Tokyo drift (haha) and had a look, fuckin wild man.
Thanks heaps for all you help Bro and hope to catch ya soon.

We need to know all the good places to go, unfortunetly we are on a pretty strict budget, so knowing where we can eat some good grub at cheap prices and maybe some cheaper sneaker places would be kool. Most of our spending will be on samples for our next range but would love to find some kool Nike SB that are priced decently.
Cheers THIZZ, sounds like you should setup a Tour business???? Sounds good heysmile

Well your in luck as far as food is concerned because you can eat food fairly cheap in japan(Korean BBQ will do you real good). As for cheap sneaker places ABC Mart and the like will probably be your best bet. Most of the shoe places im gonna take you to don't sell the shoes for cheap however you can take some pic's and get a good look at all kinds of shoes/style's. Also i'll tell you about landmark's and such just incase you decide to go on your own and you don't wanna get lost. Japanese people are very humble and one thing they like is when people notice their fashion/style so feel free to ask people if you can take a pic of them and whatnot(I'll have a homegirl there to translate also)...

Yes i know where Harlem is however you need a japanese escort to get in. Which means you need a person to walk in with you after that your good. Cuz they guy at the door will tell them they take responsiblity for your actions and blah blah blah...Anway i don't mind making it a group thing. And as for harlem i can probably get us in there maybe friday night let me check back on that but more than likely i'll go there on friday night. Shibuya is not that far from Harajuku(in fact you can walk to harajuku from there)...but yea i'll show you guys around it's gonna take awhile though hahaha don't expect to be there for like an hour it's gonna probably be about 4 hours or more...

Well im going to have my homeboi Maki go with me to Shibuya on friday night. So we'll meet up with you guys there and take you to some of the clubs. We can more than likely get into the clubs for free if not for a big discount. There is alot of clubs in shibuya so it should be good. Just a warning though most clubs in Japan are kinda compact seeing as how they don't have a max compacity limit and they just let in however many people they can. Bring your ID with you to club and a good amount of yen depending on how much you drink. We usually drink for free in the club but who knows.

On saturday i will be coming to Harajuku about 11ish. I could just go to Shibuya and walk down to Harajuku if you like so just let me know. Im going to see if one of my friends(Japanese) wants to tag along for the trip because the one i was coming with has to work so she had to cancel and deeply apologize's for the inconvience. I will try and get you to any stores that you are looking for(I know most of them) however some stores are extremely hard to find because of the many alleys and streets they are located on. I'll take you around to alot of stores and alof of shoe stores. Now the most direct way to get ahold of me is to email my cellphone. My email address for that is [email]THiZZ@t.vodafone.ne.jp[/email] So you can reach me there instead of relying on this topic and PM's all the time...
