I assume you got your own harem as soon as you set foot in the country.

for all of you who want bento's. You can order a bento box online and make them your self just look up how to cook the items you want in it.


But that's a secret!

P.S.: (to anyone who reads this) I advise against trying to make tamagoyaki without a non-stick pan. I tried working around not having one, but haven't succeeded.

Is the anime fan base as huge as it's made out to be?

How is the atmosphere within Japan about the Fukushima incident dealing with radiation poisoning?

Was there a limitation on fish? Did you eat any fish and if so was it only from the west coast of Japan?

Is it worth traveling to Japan even for 1-2 days just to visit Akihabara?

I'm thinking about going there for college, do you think that it will be 10x harder to study there than america? Also did you have to change your name to a Japanese name?


if you want to goto collage in japan, it's pointless unless it's a university. and if it's a university you want to come out of highschool with a near, if not 4.0 GPA. it is very often people attend universities like tokyo u from close relation nations to japan, like Australia. though people from other nations attend also. The only thing is you will probably not have much time for yourself. Unless your a genius (most of us are not) you will have to do a lot of studying and also all living expenses will not be covered so there will be a part time job. you can get lucky with one of those but a good chunk of part time jobs (non internships) are considered to be for a "freeter".

It can be difficult but also rewarding. it takes a person with strong willpower and a lot of determination if you want to study at a foreign university.

If you have the means to go there i would say yes, maybe stretch it out to a few days. and if you visit Akihabara you can go just a little south and take a tour of the Tokyo Imperial palace. it is in the Chiyoda ward of Tokyo prefecture (same as Akihabara / Akibagahara) it is a very beautiful place and i would put it as a must see if you go to the eastern part of Tokyo-shi.

I just came back from a 3 week trip abroad in Japan. All the food is super fresh and Mcdonalds isn't crap (REAL white meat chicken nuggets!) Convenience stores are huge there. I think I saw 3 family marts within a 5 block radius in Ikebukuro. I know barely any Japanese, but I learned a lot from my time there. It is a very unique and amazing place to be, thats for sure.

Do you realy have to leave the shoes at the entrance of the house when enterting in?


That applies everywhere. I always ask the person at the home which they would prefer. Some people think you are being too friendly by doing that so it just depends on the home owner.

How technologically advanced is the place because I've heard that they have the highest technology for the average person?

Is the stereotype that Japan has the best technology true?

My one and only question...why did you move back to this country of all places? lol


I was just there to study haha


Ha! Fair enough.

Though on a more serious note what was the tuition and living arrangements like? Basically just overall living conditions in general. I'm planning to study there abroad so I want a better picture of what I'm getting into rather than going in over my head.
