First, i would like to say there are some things that people claim are just urban legends in japan, that i call bs on based on my 2 weeks there. first is that you won't see cool cars. i saw a lot of cool cars... several skylines, sylvias, and so on. i will post a few pictures of some i saw.
second is that the females don't really wear short skirts. i took a lot of pictures of this, and will post a few. third is that people don't really get groped on the trains. i was groped/felt up/violated twice. the first time lauren saw and got pissed about it. the train wasn't very packed, but this 20 something year old girl got on the train right next to me. the train wasn't all that packed out, there was enough room that she didn't have to touch me, but, every time there was a bump or curve, she managed touching or grinding against my pecker and legs. the second time the train was packed out. i was getting my butt and back felt up. i glanced around the best i could thinking it better not be a guy. i saw long hair with a ribbon in it, so i figured i would let it slide. people started getting off the train and i got to actually look at who was doing it, and it was like a 13 year old girl :uduhh:

anyway, on to the pics.





















hard to see, but a shigeno looking ae86

Those aren't cool cars.

They were probably inside the porn stores. One of those pics is a porn store/vintage video game store. The pic that's of the inside of the store and you can see book shelves. Your Buddhist buddies over there are like Jehovah's witnesses. They Won't Leave you the hell alone, and they beg you for money. Try to hand you anal beads and want like 50 bucks for them. The Shinto guys were cool though... They just wanted to play their Pokemon go.

I was so close.
Sorry, I'll take pics of the yellow plate cars next time. I saw 5 American cars the whole time, a gt500, 2 new mustangs, a new camaro, and a 300. A ton of German cars, especially BMW and Mercedes. Figure people didn't want to see a bunch of m4 and m5 pics.
:drool: So jelly
I had a lot of fun, I miss it already. I took 2000ish pictures, but don't feel like posting anymore :idgaf:

It made me realize how American restrooms aren't private at all. In Japanese restrooms the door has about an inch of overlap with the wall, and the walls and door go from the ceiling to the floor.

Food over here is way overdone with flavor... After being there for a couple weeks, everything here tastes too salty or sweet.

one of those guys was knocked the fuck out on the train
Probably a quarter of the people in the trains sleep. We saw one guy fall asleep standing and started dangling from the handle.

A few other things I noticed in japan:
1. Virtually nobody but Japanese and white people... More Europeans than Americans that I noticed. Probably saw about 5 black people (and the only person I saw that got asked for his ticket on a train was a black guy lol) no Hispanic people, and nobody from the Middle East. There were a few Haitians running stands in a couple of areas like harajuku though.

2. Far lower percentage of swamp donkeys running around. All the chicks aren't super models, but I'd say average for looks is higher than America. The females tend to be very feminine... Even physical characteristics. I look at people's hands (maybe because of previous leo experience) and their hands are daintier and have more feminine shaped nails. A lot of American chicks have man hands.

3. Guys don't wear jeans :dontknow:

Cool shit. Thanks for sharing.

Any DOs or DON'Ts to suggest?
Tokyo is at the top of my (short) list of distant places to travel to.

Yeah, we don't consider Skylines nor Silvias to be cool cars 'round these parts. You aint from 'round here, are ya boy?

Yeah, don't take pictures of people and car license plates without their consent. Japan has very strict laws regarding expectations of privacy and that extends into public places. Supposed to blur any identifying information in photos (i.e., faces and license plates) unless you have consent from that person to use that information. Are you going to get into trouble as a foreigner? No, but it's nice to be respectful of the laws and culture of the country you're visiting.

Also, taking pictures of school girls is a fast way to get the pleasure of trying to explain to the cops that you're not a pervert.

Did you just stay in the Tokyo area?

I've been living here for almost 8 years. Could've showed you some crazy shit during your trip
We went as far west as Hiroshima, and checked out places between, like Nagoya, Kyoto, matsuyama, but we never went north of tokyo. My wife started getting burnt out on walking so we mostly stayed close to Tokyo the second week.

I didn't bother trying to meet up with anybody this time due to my wife making what seemed to be a full schedule on top of meeting up with her 3 girls she met on Japan exchange. Holy shit they were all 3 so accommodating. I know Japanese people have a reputation for being hardworking, but they made it clear they were not going to let us down or fail us in any way.
They would pay for things for us before I even had a chance to.

Lauren wants to go back next year... Even though she was homesick after like 3 days lol... And if we do I'll let my crsx brothers in Japan know.
Cool shit. Thanks for sharing.

dont tip at restaurants.
Wear one of the facemasks if you get a cough or sneeze. They're so big on not calling in to work sick, that otc cough medicine has codeine. Pair coal, and bron were two of them I saw.
Like koopa troopa mentioned, they don't like having pictures taken of them. I did catch a few people taking pictures of us. None of them turn off their iphone shutter sound lol, and they all have iPhone... Like iPhone 4 or 5 too, which surprised me since they have a Docomo or Y! Store around every corner.
Stay on the left side of the escalator so people can walk past you on the right.
Don't talk to people on the trains, talk on your phone on the train, or strike up conversations with random people.
Do get a jr train pass. We got the national one which was something like $450 a piece. If you just plan on staying in Tokyo or somewhere else specific, you can get a jr east or west (there's like 5 different ones) and it's a lot cheaper. Just the shinkansen ride from Tokyo to Kyoto and back would have been $300 a piece. Also, it's a good idea to ask the attendants at the jr booth which platform you need to be on until you get used to it.

If you get lost in a station (Tokyo, ueno, kanda, etc. are huge) look for the green Running Man sign. The jr booth is always in that direction. It's a sign for exit.
so a good amount of white people you say?
In the tourist areas there are a lot of white people... Tokyo station, akihabara, Kyoto, etc. We stayed a night in a hotel in niihama when we went out west and saw nothing but Japanese people. Similar to the place we rented the apartment for the trip. That was kokubunji which is just a couple stations west of shinjuku.

After the first couple of days I realized taking random pics of people and things in public wasn't acceptable like in America, so I calmed my tits after that. I started asking and a lot of people were fine with it... Like the Godiva girls in the pics above, that's why they're cheesing in the pics. A lot of other people sounded reluctant but would say yes to pics. Some people would say pics are fine, just don't get my face.

They don't turn their shutter sound off because they can't unless their phones are jailbroken or they flashed it. It's illegal in Japan to have a camera phone without an audible shutter, so Japanese cell phones don't have the option to turn the sound off.
