@Raven - Lol no deal. I took Air China. The downside to the cheap price is that the flight is unnecessarily longer, so if your vacation is a short one, I recommend just forking over the extra cash to knock down the flight time to only in between 10-14 hours instead of 17-27 hours.
@Crimson - I only went to the major tourist spots like Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka and yes they were very accommodating. It was a very enlightening experience.
I've done a lot of what there is to do. Spent days in akihabara, wandered through nature, ate hundreds of sushi pieces, took classes, develoepd a crush on a girl, bought hentai, went to clubs in shibuya, ate gross food, ate DELICIOUS food, went to tokyo disney sea, stumbled onto a pokemon center in osaka, pet some cats, saw anime films in theaters and on tv as they aired
you name it
damn sounds like you had a good time, ima have to write that list down for when i go live there to make sure i do them all as well ^^
go for it!
Been with my Dad to Tokyo when he went for a business trip (I just tagged along). I was hangin' out in Akiba most of the time and my Dad thought I was weird. Whatevers... was worth it.
Yeah. even though I'm not an Otaku and just a basic anime fan, I couldn't help but get a big goofy smile on my face when I went to Akihabara :D
In two years I want to study in Japan, in the Erasmus Mundus program. I hope I can.
I lived in Japan for 2 years while I was in the Air Force. I actually was a radio DJ there. It was in a suburb in western Tokyo. Yokota Airbase. It was amazing. Spent many a weekend roaming Tokyo. Climbed Fuji twice, also.
yo HOW DID YOU GET A RADIO DJ GIG IN JAPAN
was it on the base?
