Haha, there is always everyone's first time. And yes, I do have thoughts of having a cup of sake or too~ x3

Btw, I am gonna set the date of confirmation to be March. By then, we need to be confirmed on the trip as booking and reserving will commence.

@Tempostorm. Japan's law is 21... being that we will be in Japan, that law applies to us regardless of what our country states.

Unless we open up a business I don't think we'll need to worry about the Yakuza LOL Japan is incredibly safe compared to just about everywhere else in the world.

I already posted this but it's worth repeating because his videos are so good. Basically watch every video this guy has on youtube, especially the How To playlist. http://www.youtube.com/user/TheJapanChannelDcom It was incredibly helpful to know ahead of time about things like Suica cards for the trains and how to avoid embarrassing yourself in public.

ok anymore of this convo and we will be labeled as spamming. Anyway, in Japan they have a lot of rules, let me list them down that I know of

When on trains or public transports, please off your phone and refrain from speaking loudly.
At certain pick hours and stations, they have Woman only carriages as due to high levels of molestation cases.
Standing on the left* of the escalator in Tokyo, walking is on the right.
Smoke at designated smoking spots or rooms only.
Payment is made on the tray, place your money there and your change will be given to you similarly

lol an I dunno,

Thank you 320x220. Haha I did have fun with some Yakuza people actually, they aren't so bad unless u are invading their turf or something like that.

All the talk of poly n Ns is making mi feel old....

Anyway...just came back from Hokkaido....
Scandal is near-nonexistent dere Mad

The drinking and smoking clearance is actually 20

Be prepared for slow internet....haben been in since it loads way too slow when i was over dere...

Yazuka is present in the entire country but they dont touch civilians...
They would be the least of your worries
unless you go around disturbing blk Mercedes wif tinted window...

I would lyk to go too...but its still too vague regrading timing now
So i guess will depends on when if they would have their next tour...

The tix would be a very biggest problem because you need a local address and they sold out pretty fast...
There is a "black" market site that you can buy from but its lyk MORE then 10 times the price

E.g Virgin hall tours
Official tix is all 4800yen and seats are given out by lottery?
(not sure on tis read from other thread)
But from the site you can actually pick your own seats
Waaaayy back cost 15000yen
Front row 50k yen++

Will keep chkin for updates...

Guys, there's so much "chat" going on in this thread... Please use PMs or start a different thread of off-topic posts. With too many off-topic posts in the thread people finding out about the trip now will never read through all the pages and they'll miss the actual information.

For those coming from the US:

- The power plugs are the same in Japan as we use, but the voltage is a little lower. Anything that has a built in adapter/wall-wart (laptop, phone charger, etc) will work fine. Things that plug in more directly, like an electric razor, will still work but will run a bit slow since the voltage is lower.

- Learning to use chopsticks is pretty much a necessity. It's not always polite (or possible) to ask for western silverware in some situations so it's best to be able to use chopsticks.
