Japan

Anyone been to Japan?

Considering going to Japan in the summer and wanted to hear what you thought of it. Is it too expensive?

I am pretty sure DaGeek has. I think he actually went this past summer.

I was in Okinawa for 2.5wks this past fall. I'll give some more info when I get home and onto a real PC!

Alrighty, now that I'm on a real computer...


Japan was a really neat place to visit. I spent the entirety of my time on Okinawa, which is off the mainland a ways to the south, so, while I can't speak for the mainland, I can saw Okinawa was rather affordable and very "first world." It's more expensive than Peru, for sure, but probably comparable or a little cheaper than where you are right now. A typical meal of pretty good food would cost somewhere between $7-$10 USD. Sushi is high quality and affordable -- eat as much of it as you can if you enjoy it! There are shady places, of course, but there were so many good ones.

Transportation-wise, you won't be able to rent a car unless you go through some hoops, because it's all right-hand drive. I can't comment on prices for cabs/buses too much because my family I visited had a car, but it seemed affordable.

Any specific questions about prices or anything else? I'm not sure what else to say off the top of my head .

How easy/hard was it to communicate?

On Okinawa, there's a huge presence of US military, so most places had employees who spoke enough English to communicate about menus, prices, etc. I didn't find it difficult and never felt like I was truly helpless. Can't speak for the mainland, but there's a decent military presence there, too, so a big city like Tokyo would likely be similar.

It is because me and my brother want to travel this summer, but he doesn't want to go to Peru again this year. We both want to go somewhere new.

Most of the countries I suggested he didn't like, so I suggested Japan (airplane ticket is cheap when you consider how far it is). I suppose the biggest expense would be the stay over there. None of us have been to Asia so it feels like a good option.

Awesome! I've never been, but I'd love to go one day.
