I'm gonna try and make it out there in the next year after I brush up on my Japanese (Minored in college, but I'm rusty now.) What's a good amount of time to visit? A week seems too short to really get a decent amount out of the trip but I know it's expensive so don't wanna break the bank and stay for months.

10 days is plenty if you just plan on staying inside Tokyo. For all its charms and hype, when you break it down it's just a big ass city. And unless you have local friends to show you all the hidden gems (shops, bars/clubs, restaurants etc.) you could see all the tourist shit in 2 days. There really isn't anything of real substance in this town. It's only good for 4 things: Shopping, eating, partying and fucking.
If you plan on visiting the Kansai area, Kyoto and Osaka, which I HIGHLY recommend then 2 weeks will suffice. Budget completely depends on lifestyle. Shopping, eating and partying is expensive in this town though.

SMH ya'll hype up Japan so much... Cboom pretty much sumed it up. You won't fully enjoy and appreciate japan unless you have someone to show you around. Getting all excited to eat Ramen is dumb ass hell. Like really your gonna pay that much money just to experience authentic ramen. The hype dies fast once you see how fast your money goes and how expensive it is to enjoy yourself out there. With that said if you don't experience places like Nagoya/Kyoto/Osaka you are really missing out on the nicer side of Japan. If you go to the real Tokyo not the district you'll see nothing but buisness suits... Chu Hi is pretty bomb though and i don't even like beer. I miss Coco Ichi Bana though real talk... Chicken Cutlet level 5 with double meat and 600 grams of rice yesssiiirrr...

Smokes just went up in price. 440 yen/pack. What's funny is that the Japanese made a huge stink about it but it's still have the price compared to where I'm from.

Hit me up if you're in Tokyo.

Arriving at Narita around 4PM tomorrow. Which bar do you work at cboom?

On another note ferry corsten is performing at ageha on saturday. Saw him the last time he was there and it was dope. Thinking about hitting that up. I really want to roll too but dropping 5000 yen on some exo hurts a bit.

hitting up my local ichirokuya as soon as i get settled in and i can't wait.

most shops will be closed on new years day. some maybe open.

everything should be open on the 2nd

lots of places will have a new year sale which is generally the biggest sale of the year

have a great time!

I'm interested in going to tokyo for a few months early 2012, has anyone stayed in a guest home out there? How was it? I'm trying to figure out what's the best place to stay while in town since I don't have any family out that way.

I'm flying into Osaka on the 6th of next month. Totally fucking pissing myself because I've never been overseas by myself and I know no one in Osaka. I'm spending 30 days in Japan before making my way across to LA. Gonna try to aim for Kobe, Kyoto, Tokyo and Hiroshima. Anyone in Osaka wanna show an Aussie around for a day or two?
