Yeah it was one of a number of alleys populated with small bars, catering for 5-20 people or so. I'm not too sure where in greater Tokyo it was, though, because I was using my 7D that night and it doesn't have GPS.

The sign wasn't all that common but it did pop up from time to time and, where it did, it was mostly at smaller places in back-alleys; sometimes we were also asked to leave, straight after walking in, when it was apparent we didn't speak Japanese (I can read kana but still don't know what most of it means). It was a little confronting initially but we just had to accept it and find somewhere else. It wasn't so much of an issue as to cause us any real problems and we still had plenty of fun and found lots of great places to drink and/or eat yakitori.

Yep, Imadegawa campus. The Ryoshinkan is only a few years old, three or four I think. The cafeteria, which is located in the basement, is nothing special (outside of the sasami cheese katsu), but the bakery above it on the first floor is fantastic.


Nope, I post here and reddit occasionally but that is it.

Most of my stuff is boring touristy shots of Kyoto. The snow one was a fluke, don’t think I could reproduce it. I was mainly going for the cool snow flurries. I don’t really have an eye for Japanese street photography, too used to it to see it I think.


Pretty much, it was only three or four months ago. The only change is out of frame. Directly to the left was a really sketchy looking cafe that was torn down, they were doing construction when I took it, but it is now a nice, new house.

If you still reside in Japan, and have a chance to visit Tokyo, make sure you visit Kotakemukaihara. There are coffee shops all around and tiny streets filled with old design shops, and some Kaikan buildings. A stroll from Kotakemukaihara towards Ekoda can be fruitful.

I'm visiting Japan for the first time soonish and currently planning it. I'm going Tokyo > Hiroshima > Kyoto > Osaka > tokyo.
A lot of the recommended places to visit are all shrines / old buildings of various descriptions - do these get samey after you've seen a few or is it worth seeing as many as possible?
What are some truly unique not to be missed sights or activities I can do?

>> No.19017761


Hiroshima: the whole nuclear memorial complex. Itsukushima Island is near Hiroshima and it's worth visiting as well.

Kyoto: Nishiki Food Market. A problem with Kyoto for me was how after seeing few shrines and temples (even if many of them are worth seeing) a lot of them started to just blend together. That's why the food market was my favorite.

Tokyo: Meiji Jingu garden was my favorite. Tokyon Metropolitan Government Building was another nice one, go there if there's no clouds so you can see Fuji from there. Akiba and Shibuya are must see as well. Go to a maid cafe.

Save a majority of your days for Tokyo, it is so unbelievably huge. I also advice you to go there last, since Osake, Hiroshima and especially Kyoto are all going to feel underwhelming after you've experienced the world's largest metropolitan area. If you can, try to time your trip to overlap with an event like Comiket, Reitaisai or Mogra. I couldn't attend any of those in my first time and my next trip will focus on getting to experience them.

It's okay unless it is an overcrowded schedule
There are two ways of accessing the jyuniko lakes
How to use a rental car and train and bus

If you are a rental car, 43 km travel time is 51 minutes
When you arrive at jyuniko Lakes, you park the car at a toll parking lot (400 yen)

For trains and buses
Take the train from Noshiro to Jodoko station (charge 840 yen, boarding time 1 hour 6 minutes)
Take the bus from jyuniko Lake Station to Wang Ponda or Oku jyuniko Lake Parking Lot (Price: 200 yen / day ride time: 15 minutes)
However, it is super local line so pay attention to the timetable
There is only one train in two hours and one bus per hour

It will be tough if you miss it
If you have money you can use a taxi or a chauffeur-driven hired car, but It will be expensive
I most recommend a rental car

For souvenirs and souvenirs in the twelve lakes (shop named Kyo Lolo)
You can apply for the guided tour at the information desk, but
I do not know if I can do a guided tour in English

Hiking plans vary from 1 hour to more than 5 hours course etc.
In the summer, there are a lot of tourists, so I do not think he will get lost
I strongly recommend using a guide if walking long distances
Price starts from 10,000 yen

Last pic worth sharing is the other half of the L/D with some weird flooring rolled up. I feel like a reform started and then was abandoned here. I had the flash off but the balcony has a lot of natural light coming in which is good. Sorry for wasting image limits, hopefully it will be interesting when I fix the place up with better photos.

Yes, considering I have lived off and on here for over a year, its at the point where this saves me money since gaijin tax on accommodation is at least double. I feel like it would be an easy resale after I fix it up if it ever came to that, especially with the olympics coming up. I doubt I could show the front without doxing, its not much to look at anyway, just an old ass brick apartment building.

I am only doing really superficial stuff myself, I do have to have a reform company come in and do about 10K of work. Still, I literally couldn't afford any half-decent property in a good location back in the states despite my efforts and now I'm a stones throw away from anything I could want to do in Tokyo.

Japan doesn't have tornadoes, what's your point?

>> No.19202826


you can insulate them with GAINA paint

>> No.19203115

I'm sure we have a few, just not regular like USA and not as large.

Even New Zealand gets tornadoes (actually it's becoming fairly regular to have a few each year now).

>> No.19203141


Bigger issue is earthquakes. Most of those ugly little houses will do fine.

A similar sized earthquake would fuck up housing in most of America.

>> No.19203282

I'm not sure but doesn't most of America not have earthquake construction standards because they mostly only affect the west coast?

>> No.19203299


Yes. The west coast actually isn’t as tough with the standards as they should be even.

Same as tornados in Japan really.

Not forcing anything (don't have to), just saying that's a fact not an opinion. Let's shut up and not derail this great thread okay?

I'll be in Japan for a full month starting on July 5th. I'm going to be in Tokyo, Saitama, Kyoto, Onomichi-shi, Ooshima-shi, Matsuyama-shi, Tokushima-shi, Osaka, and lots of little places in-between. Anything in those areas I should get pictures of?

Loved these jam packed corners in book/doujinshi stores. Very un-Western aesthetics.
