    I was in Tokyo 28th mars to 11 of april. Damn, one of the best things i've done in my life. I fucking love that country...

    anyways, all anime and manga are in japanese, NO subtitled stuff. The anime stuff you can buy (if you dont speak/read japanese...) is some videogames maybe and some miniature figures. And of course.... t-shirts! I found some cool shirts in Akihabara. There are a loooooot of cool stores in Akihabara, one of my absolute favorite places.

    Just ask if you have some questions. :) You will love that place, I'm thinking of saving some money and go there again.

    I'm going to Japan from July 13 - August 2nd

    Still not sure exactly everything I'm going to do while I'm there.. If there is anywhere in particular you suggest visiting let me know (I was there last summer, but was with a friend the whole time and didn't really get a chance to venture off by myself)

    I was in Tokyo in mid-April. Best experience of my life. I can't wait to go back and visit more places! Try not to spend SOO much time buying anime, and just enjoy the country! :)

    If you are in Tokyo go to Akihabara and hit up a maid cafe. If you are in Osaka find a chick and hit up the Love Hotels.. that is what i did the last time i was in japan :bigthumb:

    I heard American Airlines had some cheap deals if you're willing to fly coach on odd days; something like $500 round trip! I went on a business trip though and my firm footed the bill. :bigthumb:

    Definitely go!

    Where are people going in Japan. I have gone there twice for a month each. I mostly stuck to Kansai area but I did visit Tokyo for a few days. I bought a few Gundam models though, and plenty of stuff from Super Autobacs (japanese version of Napa). If you are going in August it is going to be REALLY hot/humid. Prepare to be lugging a towel around with you everywhere. You will have a blast though. Do you have a guide?

    I would love you forever :bowdown: :love:


    Unfortunately its not a matter of if I can go or the money, my family and I just started a new business in the past year and I'm pretty much unable to leave for extended periods of time. Hopefully in a year or two when everythings completely settled down I can make a trip :hs:
    Although if someone kidnaps me I can't do much about that :naughty:
