Tip ko lang pag pupunta kayo sa Japan at stay kayo nang matagal. Wag lang kayo mag stay sa isang city. Bili kayo ng JR Pass. 14k+ per person for 7 days and pwede puntahan lahat ng Japan. Super sulit! Meron din mas mahabang duration. Aside from the bullet train may free rin iilang lines sa subway.

Madali lang apply ng visa. Sa Reli (MOA) ako nag-apply. After ilang days approved agad. May balita ako na may isang tao 30k lang laman ng bank account approved parin. Parang mas madali pa nga ngayon e hehe.

I miss Japan soooooo much. Gusto ko bumalik. Nabitin ako dati.

Good news din na meron na rin Tokyo and Nagoya flights ang Cebu Pacific. Abang kayo ng piso sale :P Kaya nakapunta rin ako dati dahil sa piso sale (Osaka) 12k pesos lang 2 persons round trip. :D Mas mahal mga surcharge ngayon ng cebu pac pero sulit parin.

I'm the exact opposite. Stay in one area. There are so many places to visit in a certain area. Nung first time pumunta ako doon, sa dami ng gusto ko puntahan. We went to Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka, one week ang trip namin. It felt rushed yung pagpunta namin sa isang lugar and we spend alot of time in traveling instead of sight seeing. I suggest to stick to one or two area. Mas sulit yung lakbay niyo. I spend 3 days in Kyoto, I was only able to visit 30% tourist destination. Kulang na kulang ang time. Though I agree a JR pass is a must. You'll be spending a ton of money if don't get one.

Malaki talaga Japan. Kahit anung trip meron don.

Nung nag Japan ako, 6 days ako, Tokyo ako araw araw, pero lumalabas 2 days papuntang Suzuka para manod ng F1, balikan sa Tokyo.

Masasabi ko bang naikot ko ang buong Tokyo? Nope. Pero masabi ko na execute ko yung plano ko to perfection. Kahit hindi ako nakadating ng Osaka, Disney Land, etc, panalo pa din yung trip ko.

Kung napagod kayo or na-stress kayo sa trip ninyo, I think it all boils down to planning and ano target. Minsan masyado tayo excited on ano pwede nating puntahan or gawin sa isang place, hindi natin naisip yung realistic na pwede nating puntahan or gawin. And realistically speaking, para sa mga 1st timer, mahirap talaga puntahan lahat lalo na kung sariling lakad at walang tour.

Another thing is yung motivation bumalik. Bitin ako obviously, pero that makes it more motivating to come back.

Yes, malaki talaga ang Japan. Maraming pwedeng puntahan. Time will never be enough to visit them all.

All I'm saying is avoid traveling too many locations. Make your trips as efficient as possible. Isipin mo, traveling to Kyoto from Tokyo take 2.5-3 hours. Kung balikan pa yun it's gonna be at most 6 hours. Ang laki na kinain ng araw sa biyahe lang. So kung gusto niyo mag Kyoto, make your trip all about Kyoto. Kung Tokyo then Tokyo lang. Sayang yung ilang oras na kakabiyahe mo sa tren.

Kaya sabi ko stay in one area if you plan your trip. You'll enjoy your vacation more. Kahit sa iisang lugar lang yan, maraming pwede gawin kahit saan ka magpunta.

Tip ng pinsan kong sanay sa travelling, applies to any country you go...

Don't be just a tourist, try to live like a local of that country. Live their lifestyle. :agree: :2thumbs: :win:
Lord, grant me the strength to be content where I am, the patience to wait on Your timing, & the faith to remember that You have Your hand always on my heart. Amen.

"Sumimasen, toire wa dokuda?"

Nako oo mga pafs, bukod sa mga japanese phrases na alam natin sa kapapanood ng anime, malaking tulong ang phrase book!!! Dun ako natututo bumili ng pagkain, ticket, tanong ng direction, etc etc.

Pero kapag sumagot na sila... Boom!!! Babagal kana sa reaction time kasi hindi mo alam kung ano sinabi nila!!! :lol:

Ah hindi pa pala sure yung visa free sa Japan, pero siguro malaki din chance na ma approve ito.

@Snake
Siguro bro budget around 250-400k

Nag uumpisa na ako mag basa ng mga Proper Etiquette, do's and dont's hehe

Baka around Tokyo lang kami mag libot kasi hindi sya katulad ng SG na halos kaya mo maikot yung mga tourist spot via train, masama pa marami daw dun mga tourist traps.

Tsaka delikado daw sa train eh, totoo pala yung mga perv sa train haha!

Nabalitaan ko dati may job opening yata isang province sa Japan, kelangan nila ng Farmers. So i think qualified din mga local farmers natin if ever.

My brother went on a business trip tokyo last month. And he told me stories. Highlight ko lang ang ilan:
- Malaking bagay ang utang na loob, pagtulong, pagpapasalamat sa kanila. Very grateful sila when you helped them no matter how small that help is
- They will not stop bowing down unless you stop. "Arigato".
- Vending machines are everywhere. Like every 100 meters or so.
- He was amazed at Japan's mass transit system. Bullet-train. 14 hours of land travel here in the Phils. will just take 2 hours in sa kanila.
- Ramen. Order, get a slip. After you eat, return your bowls. (Sanay kasi tayong mga pinoy na iniiwan ang plato sa mesa after eating)
- Cherry Blossoms are great.
- Japanese kid's hairstyle & fashion are really anime-ish. (No wonder animes look like that. Coz it's real pala)
- A building of pure clothing line.. Uni-Qlo.
- Japanese schoolgirls.
- high level of discipline
- etc.

I told my bro to have a pic with the Gundam statue. He stayed 1 week in tokyo but he said wala siyang time.
Where's that Gundam statue located? Any other Mecha statue built aside RX-78?

@Death

Thanks sa mga info. :2thumbs:

RE: Vending Machine, oo nga daw eh kahit sa kalagitnaan ng bukid meron daw, wala daw bumabasag nung glass unlike sa atin na pag nilagay mo sa kalsada, asahan mo hehe, maliit lang din pala ang crime rate sa Japan, mataas ang sexual harassment though.

RE: Groping in Jap Train
Oo kaya pala meron daw train na "Women Only" dahil dun, at kahit lalake ka, wala ka raw takas meron daw mga badingerzi, Train Gropers (chikan)

Kaya baka mag taxi na lang kami ni GF kapag may pupuntahan or siguro hindi rush hour.

Target ko kasi puntahan is Akihabara :D
