Hey everyone, I'm going to Tokyo in about a year. What I'm wondering is has anyone here on CDC been to there and have any tips on where to go?
Also if there's anything I should avoid or things I should bring. It would also be great to here if you enjoyed yourself there!

The train route is hella confusing. Look at it beforehand.

Tokyos great much to see and do.

How long are you going for?

The transit system is second to none and the layout and maps of it are super easy to understand.

The only thing i really found frustrating is lack of wifi and no one seems to understand what it is. They all have their own "japanese" phones that run on a system totally incompatible with Na, Europe or any other country for that matter. And its not easy to buy a phobe there etc. Wish i had researched more on wifi or a solution to the lack of before i went.

It is not my intent to get in circular arguments with anybody. The reason i have avoided saying anything specific is because i know you or someone else will attempt to find an alternate explanation to my points which i intern will have to defend. I see no point in getting involved with the circular argument that is already well under way in this thread. I simply intended to voice my opinion on the subject. In the end either you accept the possibility of corruption and conspiracy or you don't.

Also i find your comments to be very childish. Does taking what i say out of context, paraphrasing and misquoting it make you feel good about yourself? Grow up.

Well with 2-3 weeks youll definitely want to see the sights outside of tokyo.

For me tokyo was basically interesting things to see everywhere, the food and the bars.

Do you have plans to go out of Tokyo?

First thing I saw when I turned on the TV in the hotel my first night in Japan (1986) was bondage porn! The Japanese are some kind of super freaks!!

I spent two weeks in the Kobe/Osaka area. One thing I definitely recommend is to get out into the countryside. It is totally different and a very beautiful country.

“When facism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”-Sinclair Lewis

A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."-Albert Einstein

The fact that you say this, makes me want to go to Tokyo even more. Just makes it seem like an anti-douchbag place.

Don't forgot to hit the killer mountains while you're there.

Some of the best powder if you're a snowboarder or skier.

Other than that enjoy the food and the nightlife, it's no where near the same as here. Don't forget the trains are never later than 3 seconds (Which is the average, also apparently its rude to talk on your phone and beware many of the subway lines don't have any english signs but there's literally a station in every spot of the city)

Maybe try out one of these capsule Hotel rooms, its super cheap and surprisingly conformable and roomy

Good idea, I'll definitely take my board with me.
I can't wait to see what the nightlife there has to offer. Should be pretty fun!

Nah I'm okay with the hotel room.
There's a reason I'm going in a year and that's so I can save up to live extravagant when I'm there lol.
Thanks for the info!

Yep, poster up there was right about not talking on your phone on the train. Be super respectful to the elderly as well, give up your seat if there aren't any.

Anything that's worth doing in Tokyo will be on the internet or in a guide book.

If you have any specific questions though, I'd be happy to answer them to the best of my ability... I went there this summer. :) Great city, though I love Japan in general!

This. Respect is pretty important there. I've also found the people there to be very friendly (though I guess it depends on where you go). I remember asking directions to the nearest payphone and the guy didn't know so he tracked down someone for me that did know.
