Did you visit some place related to anime, manga or figures?
What was the best part, other than anime, manga or figures?
Did you attend an idol concert?


Anime related stuff is very common throughout the city of Tokyo. So it is not too hard too miss, especially when you are looking for it. The best part other than anime was the culture and the experiences I had with people. And no, no concerts I was too busy running around all day and then crashing every night

Did you let them ask questions about America; just as you are letting us ask questions about them?


Oh yes definitely, it was a learning experience for everyone we came in contact with. That was the best part, all of the interactions.

What part or parts of Japan did you visit? How long was your vacation?


One week, and everywhere in Tokyo lol. Except Akihabara sadly. Too much to explain, but it was amazing, you need to go :D



I'd like to visit Tokyo. I'd like to make multiple trips to Japan in my lifetime, if I could. First place I'd want to go is Kyoto and its surrounding area. I'd like to go to Sapporo and see parts of Hokkaido. I'd like to see rural parts and small towns of Honshu. I'd like to visit Okinawa, too. There must be so many great places to visit in Japan.

Were you being stared at for being a foreigner?


No, they keep to themselves and don't make any eye contact with people. They will only look over if you do something loud or annoying. You basically have to try really hard to get their attention. (other than children, they think Americans are the most interesting thing ever) One time I jogged through a slightly crowded shopping area at night to catch up to my group because I stopped for something. I have long enough that my jog is faster than most of their running(lol, I mean no offense short people >.<) so that attracted some attention, then I sprinted which got some more exclamations from people fun stuff

Is their food yummy?
Is anything more particularly expensive in Japan than it would be in the US?
Have you noticed any other foreigners around?
How was the weather like when you visited? (I'm not asking to be a troll, I just always hear about a typhoon going over Japan every other season)
Are the people more accepting of each other? (Compared to the racism issues of the states)
Would you consider the need of buying a vehicle to live there? If not, how convenient/clean is the transportation there?

*breathes*

And lastly.......what job are you taking on in Japan? What jobs would you recommend to foreigners to take on when moving there? I hear it's extremely hard to become a citizen...and that it takes about 13 years to be one and buy real estate. Praying these are rumors.
