yes just went this summer and it was awesome!
Hi, I've been to Japan twice so far, planning third trip, or rather looking for someone who would like to go together, ideally someone from Czech or Japan (this time I'll be going to Hokkaido), that's why I created profile here yesterday. My profile is not filled yet, will do that soon, just one question - how is it with photos, when I upload a bunch of photos from previous visits of Japan, can I set it to be viewed only by friends or only members?
My trips are not much otaku stuff related, if I say I've met shark while scuba-diving in okinawa, went through mangrove forest on canoe or made whole day climb to a mountain it would give you some ideas what it is like to travel with me :-D But sure there will be some short stop in Akiba, visit of onsen, some historical sightseeing, and for sure I'll be staying with some locals like in previous travels.
I have no exact plan yet, it depends if I find someone to go together... my Japanese is just very basic, I know what I learned in dojo or from anime, so my time limit in Japan is 3 weeks while traveling alone, then it starts feeling like I was not talking to human being in ages :-D (and you can't really expect to find someone who speaks English, for example in whole Amami airport, there is nobody like that, I found out when my flight was cancelled :-D)
If you're interested in joining me, feel free to add me as friend. Preferably someone from Czech Republic or Japan. (Also since I'm single like most people here, I'd prefer female companion over some guy, but I guess I would be a bit too picky...)
So to summarize it - going to Japan, Looking for someone to go together, let me know how it works with uploaded pictures here, I'll fill my profile soon (maybe today evening, if I find time).
I have been to Japan twice, the first time I visited Tokyo and the second time Nagoya and Kyoto were visited. I would like to go and work there maybe one or two years later. This depending on I am able to win one of the JSPS scholarships. I can recommend every place in Japan and of course, their Izakayas are also cool. I visited lots of Otera and Jinja (Buddhist and Shintoism temples) and most of their castles. The monuments and the parks there are awesome.
no, but I'd love to go one day!
