Was this your first time or have you been before?

I'm currently planning a trip there with my best friend, so anything you can recommend would be awesome!

Also, would you recommend carrying a Japanese-to-English phrase dictionary, or is it pretty easy to get around if you don't know much Japanese? Both of us just know a little bit, but we definitely couldn't carry on a conversation.

Thanks for sharing, those are some great photos!

I've been to Japan a couple of times but It was before I liked anime/manga so it never quite had an impact on me. (except for the food, Japanese food was my favorite since I was small) These days, though, all i want to do i go to Akiba haha

So you go to Japan to take boring pictures? Why didn't you invade the giant Gundam's perimeter and acted like a horny dog to its leg while a friend took the pics? Why didn't you buy a katana and faked seppuku on a busy street with ketchup and everything?

Meh.

It was my first time and also my first time out of the country on my own. We didn't need any sort of dictionary or translation. As long as you can point at a menu and stay at a hotel where the concierge speaks english you will be fine xD. Most everything, including the subway map have english labels so its not hard to find out where to go

I was visiting friends in korea for 5 days, then we all went to tokyo for 4. Your post scared the crap out of me because I use the exact same picture as my soundcloud avatar... http://soundcloud.com/brendan_baldwin

Lol. Darker than black is too good. Is that your music btw? If it is, that's really good. I'm a big fan of techno ^^. I went and saw Porter Robinson not too long ago.
