Usapang Japan

Talk about things other than video games. What are your other hobbies? What's your favorite TV show? Are you into sports. Any recommended restaurants? Do you travel?

Additional inquiry guys;

Lokks like 1 day lang pala kami sa Tokyo. We will be mostly Osaka based during our trip this July. Any good action figure stores there? I mainly collect 1/12 scale figures from S.H. Figuarts, Figma and Revoltech. :)

Wala ba kayong na experience na racism/bigotry sa Japan? May nababasa kasi ako oL na may mga establishments daw na openly hindi tumatanggap ng mga foreigners. Meron din daw mga group na galit or ayaw sa mga Chinese and Koreans. Hindi naman daw sila galit sa mga Filipinos, indonesians, indians, etc pero parang mababa daw yata ang tingin nila. :sweat:

Baka kasi pumunta kami Japan this year. Para lang ma set ko yung expectations ko. Baka pagdating ko dun puro ganito tingin nila Image or hindi ako papasukin ng establishments dahil mukha akung Chinese.

TBF sa pag google ko lang nakita yang mga yan, kaya gust ko sana yung mga firsthand experiences niyo.

Ano rin average height ng mga lalake dun? Medyo may pagka insecure kasi ako sa height ko... :lol: eh mas matatangkad pa naman mga East Asians kesa sa'ting mga SEA. :mrgreen:

Japan is still one of the most xenophobic countries so yeah. Pero you can just stick doon sa mga tourist places, magiging okay ka lang.

Ganun nga ang nabasa ko. Wala daw magiging problem pag sa mga toursit area ka dahil sanay nanaman daw mga tao dun.

-----------------
San maganda pumunta sa Tokyo? Parang puro temple, parks and mall ang nakikita ko pag nag search ako. :lol: 1st time namin kaya wala kaming alam reg sa mga tourist spots.
Akhihabara ba dun din yun? Wala silang interest sa mga anime and games kaya baka ako lang mag isa pumunta Akihabara. :mrgreen:

Sa November naman Osaka naman kami.

Ang sasabi ko lang kasi mas prefer ko ang lugar na hindi sikat...

"Get off the beaten path – London, Paris, and the temples of Kyoto are all amazing for a reason, but get off the beaten path, go away from the crowds, and explore on your own. Find something new, stick out, meet the locals, and discover. The road less traveled is usually a good one." - Matt Kepnes

Mahal ang hotel. :lol:
Hindi pala kami sa Sunshine City(sayang yung pokemon center :banghead: )... Sa Dai-ichi Hotel daw para malapit sa Ginza(?). Ano meron ngayon sa Japan? Puro fully booked daw mga hotel, pang 3 na hotel na yang DaiIchi.

Btw ok lang ba naka shorts sa Ginza area? Pag nanunuod ako mga videos sa youtube parang ang konti sobra ng mga naka shorts. :sweat: hindi ko alam kung jeans+sport coat ang susuotin ko or shorts+cotton shirts.

It is only scary if you think it is. May mga kilala ako na nasubukan na yung mga hospitality exchange lalo na yung couchsurfing and they loved it. It is free and magiging kaibigan mo yung host. Usually the host also becomes your tour guide, and again it is for free.

Planning to couchsurf next year on my South East Asia trip!

Hindi ako adventurous. :mrgreen: Wala ako lakas ng loob sa ganyan.

Mag sstreet pass sana ako sa Japan kaso hindi nga pala 220V yung mga outloet dun. :facepalm: Pero dadalhin ko narin... Hindi ko nalang gagamitin para hindi mag lowbatt. Buti pa yung PSVita autovolt.

@OnceAnAngeL
sir nung nagpunta ako Japan, dinala ko din 3ds ko..sagana sa street pass dun..kahit saang sulok ata..hindi bababa ng 10per day..

220v din dito sa SG, pero wala naman naging prob yung 3ds ko dun sa Japan nung dinala ko, kasi 110v/120v sila..mas mababa, though mabagal lang magcharge..

kung may time pa sir, i suggest na magrent ng pocket wifi..minsan kasi kahit na may mga english signages, nakakatulong parin yung may pang google on the go..

happy trip sir!
