Default Anyone been to Japan?

Going there on vacation in 3 weeks and trying to gather as much info as possible, I hear a lot of people speak English in Tokyo but Iíll be going to Hiroshima, Kyoto and Osaka too.

I hear cash is king, tattoos are taboo and you have to bow a lot lol

Hoping to see some sick R34ís while there haha

You will be close by to me as I live nearby Kobe. Post up more of your logistics plan with specific dates.

I may be travelling when you are here but can answer questions and point you towards some cool things to see while here. If you are here while I am in town we can go rip some shit up in the GTR.

I leave the day before you arrive and get back on the 15th. If you're up for it I am open to do something on the 16th. What airport do you fly home out of?

The week of August 13 Japan's Obon holiday and a lot of people will be out and about. Not sure what your detailed agenda is looking like but there are a lot of great places to see in Kyoto and Osaka.

You are probably not going to blend in here so I wouldn't worry too much about that. Japan people are generally very friendly - Tokyo is considered one of the more conservative places but in Osaka you might notice you feel more welcome as there's a lot of trade history due to the ports around and could be considered a bit more internationally welcoming. I doubt you will really feel unwelcome about anywhere here as long as you are polite and don't do anything stupid like getting drunk and go running around, etc.

If you want suggestions on some landmarks to see I can make some recommendations based on your itinerary. I am not sure how flexible you will be to see any events - I can check and see if there are any car shows or events like that going on.

It is very much a sensory overload here at first so be ready for that.

So I’m here lol list of cool cars I’ve seen:

R32
R33
R34
GTR’s all kinds
RX7’s
Few lambos and Ferrari’s
1 s197 Mustang
1970 Cuda 440 with a shaker hood

Spent 4 days in Tokyo holy shit what huge city it is, went to Hakone and did the little trek around the lake where you take the train/cable car/ferry and also went to nikko and checked out temples there, currently on my way to a little town called Takayama now, will post pics when I can.

I would call this an adventure more than a vacation wew it can be hard to move around the country not knowing Japanese!

Still trying to see if I can meet up with @Z28Camaro later in the trip

I have yet to see a fat young or old woman here in Japan, they are mostly all slender and their skin is super white, I have seen a handful of gorgeous ones walking around Tokyo. Most of the working age women wear very nice dresses and are walking around all dolled up, only complaint for me is I wish they had bigger hips/ass/legs but I’d definitely give them the D given a chance lol
