    okay, i was tehre 2 months, then travelled aroun d asia a bit, and after that, returned, and spend 2 months in tokyo. now im back home in holland.

    to motivate people;

    i say go. :) its a fantastic country, unlike any other. people in tokyo arent mean, just more reserved, which is only logical, in a city of 16 million people.
    our euro is strong now, so for people from europe, japan is cheaper then living at home right now.
    spring time is the best, but allso the busiest. the nightlife in tokyo is awsome. and its not hard to find palces in japan where they still look at foreigners asif youre a martian. and outside tokyo, people are just wonderfull, very friendly and helpful. travelling around in japan is easy, just get a rail pass. and the food is fantastic.

    u sure, im pretty sure that japan is very expensive, prob one of the most expensive places to go to. then again the euro is very strong at the mo.

    We went last year in April and found it surprisingly cheaper than we expected. It's a much better experience travelling by yourself as you can really try to do what "normal japanese" do. Want to go back to Hokaido just for the food :D

    Damn! Let me tell u what...Once you have been to Tokyo, u never wanna come back. It is a paradise for shoppers and Osaka is also a place where you could have urself experience the Tech world in Japan.

    i've been to japan twice. once stayed there for a month and the 2nd tme was just few days. the country is fantastic. i like the country very much. even the people there are very nice and polite. it's a very clean place. i would like to go there again. again...this will cost a bomb. it's too too expensive to go now.

    been to Japan not long ago. originally didnt expect to go as I was only going to Hong Kong for a month, until a friend from Hong Kong asked me to go to Japan as part of a tour and i wasnt sure about the whole tour thing but meh, gave it a go, at least there is someone to direct you to certain places rather than get lost hopelessly. Loved Japan since i was a kid and always wanted to go there and I have to say, even though it was for a week, it was incredible and having to pay for less than £400 for the whole package to Japan. definiitely worth it!!!

    * got to see Mount Fuji which was incredible
    * going to a Hot Spring spa in Hakone - loved it :D green tea, coffee, sake, red wine <3 <3
    * the chance to ride on Fujiyama in Fuji-Q Highland - roller coaster ride which peaks at 79 metres high. awesome stuff :D
    * Shinjuku in Tokyo - incredible place for commercial shopping <3
    * Yokohama was nice too :D
    * Disneyland Resort - not a big fan of disney myself but i went anyway and the Japanese kids are crazy and there were too many of them as it was its 25th anniversary ^^
    * Japanese food - absolutely amazing :D <3 Japanese ramen noodles and all sorts of other stuff, cant remember names but ate them anyway :D and Sake <3 <3 got me hammered quick on those >.<

    but as a whole it was a really nice experience and I would like to go again, and if i could, it would be one of the city i would most definitely live in, but need to brush up on my japanese language skills. did try to use what i could from my one semester of Japanese there though and when speaking to them in English, it was hard for them to understand >.< they are really polite and always give you a nice welcome ^^
