Fair enough! I've been to all those places myself! Akihabara is a good day trip, especially with friends. It's not too big, but the buildings are tall, so there are many floors, but many of the buildings are just clones of the others. You'll see a LOT of the same type of stuff, so it'll benefit you not trying to see everything. A maid cafe is always worth a trip too, if you don't mind being put on the spot and a little embarrassed. ha.

Harajuku does have stuff for tall people, as well as loose stuff. The 'punk teenager' style is not quite out of fashion around the younger tokyo crowd yet. But they do it like it's still the 80's. Demin, big loose shirts, suspenders, etc. You should be able to find what you're looking for. (I wanted to get a full suit made myself, their summer fabric is fantastic. you can wear a full suit in 30+ degrees C and still be comfortable)

Fuji-Q was a blast...definitely not the cheapest. I don't think it took us three hours to get there, maybe two or so (from Yokohama station) but there were 3-4 train transfers, and we got off on the wrong stop by accident, so that extended it a bit.

As for funds, depending on what you want to do, things are pretty cheap! Trains especially. As soon as you get there, head to a station and get a SUICA card. It'll be like a transit pass for swiping, instead of having to pay for a new ticket everytime. It's 5 bucks, can be loaded at many machines with cash, and costs nothing to maintain. In fact, when you're done, you can even return it for the 5 bucks! I kept mine for a momento. If you wanna know anything else about how much stuff costs, I'd be more than happy to tell you!

I've read somewhere that some maid cafes have very stuck up staff and some places don't even have english speaking staff. I'm not too sure about them, whether I'll visit one or not.

Fuji-Q has a day pass for around 5000 Yen. and then you can get in on anything. Did my research there.

I'm buying a rail pass next week, actually, the 2 week one. prices have been going down again, luckily. I'm gonna travel a lot and pretty far and pretty much every day. the only other tickets I need are the Kansai Thru twice 3 day passes for unlimited travelling with the Osaka metro and some buses in Kobe and Kyoto

Onigiri is worth a try, there are many flavours. I didn't find one I didn't like haha. Fair play on the sushi bit though, it's not for everyone.

I don't know, unfortunately I never had the chance to look into it which I regret.

Eh it depends, they are all themed too. It's fun with friends, that much I can say.

True, yeah, it's just the side shows and the food that isn't the cheapest. Plenty of world record holding rides though!

Ah that'll be worth it for sure then. I had considered one, but for three months it was NOT cheap. So there's no way it would've even paid for half of itself if I did haha.

Yokohama is a 10 minute train ride from Tokyo, I'd go to Tokyo almost daily. The Minato Mirai area is well worth a visit! The landmark tower, red brick warehouse, the cupnoodle museum, amusement park, the docked ship... would recommend! Half a day would cover all that and some if you're stayin in Tokyo. If I remember correctly, there's a train line that goes straight to M.M from Tokyo station!
#62 - trevanman (03/15/2016) [-]
don't know if I will go to Yokohama for that half day
it kinda depends on a bunch of things:
1. how fast I'm done in Akihabara, because that's where I'll be getting most of the shit I'll be bringing home
2. I'm a tall guy and I like wearing loose-fitting clothes, so Harajuku is a main problem. the problem being where I wanted to look for some clothes, but I don't think they have anything that would fit my preferences.
3. I already have another backup plan: Fuji-Q Highland, which is about 3 hours away by train from what I've read.
4. funds. I prefer not to waste too much money while in Japan. a certain amount tops for each day

Well yeah, so did I, but I quickly made friends there for sure. That'll work for sure! I highly recommend the pre wrapped sandwiches, onigiri, and sushi platters lol so good. So cheap. As for vit c, I lived off orangina XD it was delightful

I'm def going for the prewrapped sandwhiches.
not sure about onigiri and I ain't touching sushi.

I don't really like fish. or any kind of raw meats for that matter.
and I don't really like rice either.

speaking of which, I gotta make dinner.

I do like chicken

I don't know, unfortunately I never had the chance to look into it which I regret.

Eh it depends, they are all themed too. It's fun with friends, that much I can say.

True, yeah, it's just the side shows and the food that isn't the cheapest. Plenty of world record holding rides though!

Ah that'll be worth it for sure then. I had considered one, but for three months it was NOT cheap. So there's no way it would've even paid for half of itself if I did haha.

I'm not going with friends. hell, I'm not even going with a group. I'm going alone

yeah, I know. I'll be..uhh....bringing some food from convenience stores. they're open 24/7, if anything, I'll get up early, visit a convenience store and then get on the train to Fuji-Q.
I never have breakfast when getting up early. just some juice to get my vitamin C for the day

Yep. Konbini's. Open 24 hours too. Their standard for food is pretty high too, so you can actually trust it. Good quality too.

And then there are the Izakayas... kinda like a gastropub, but some have this deal where you get locked in from 7pm till 5-6am (when the trains run) and its all you can drink+eat for less than 40 bucks. Alcohol included. Unlimited orders.
#49 - trevanman (03/14/2016) [-]
Izakayas, more or less "real" Japanese pubs.
is there a way of not getting into these deals?
I mean, I made reservations at a few apartments and I don't wanna get locked into an Izakaya if I can sleep on a futon/in a bed I'm renting

Ha it's a thing you purchase, you can leave whenever you like, but its like you can't get in after 7. So I guess a lock-out? In a way.
#51 - trevanman (03/14/2016) [-]
lemme just take a real quick look at my maps, 'kay?

huh. my Tokyo map doesn't have any real restaurants. I should try and fix that.
Matsumoto....Izakaya: check. Tonkatsu and Yakitori restaurants too
Osaka....fuck it. Dotonbori is right around the corner

seriously. I'm gonna be living right around the corner from Dotonbori, you know, Japan's kitchen
an entire street filled with stalls and restaurants.

The one I frequented was in Yokohama, I spent three months there in Hodogaya. Lovely place.
#55 - trevanman (03/14/2016) [-]
Yokohama?
I bet.

was planning on going there (this summer, hence the mentions of maps. because I can't find any good maps and I'd rather not walk blindly into an unknown country)
anyways, was planning on visiting the Kirin Beer Village, CupNoodles Museum and probably the amusement park, until I calculated a little bit and realized that it was cheaper to instead of 2 nights Yokohama, getting an additional night in Tokyo and an additional night in Osaka was gonna be cheaper.

Yokohama is a 10 minute train ride from Tokyo, I'd go to Tokyo almost daily. The Minato Mirai area is well worth a visit! The landmark tower, red brick warehouse, the cupnoodle museum, amusement park, the docked ship... would recommend! Half a day would cover all that and some if you're stayin in Tokyo. If I remember correctly, there's a train line that goes straight to M.M from Tokyo station!
#62 - trevanman (03/15/2016) [-]
don't know if I will go to Yokohama for that half day
it kinda depends on a bunch of things:
1. how fast I'm done in Akihabara, because that's where I'll be getting most of the shit I'll be bringing home
2. I'm a tall guy and I like wearing loose-fitting clothes, so Harajuku is a main problem. the problem being where I wanted to look for some clothes, but I don't think they have anything that would fit my preferences.
3. I already have another backup plan: Fuji-Q Highland, which is about 3 hours away by train from what I've read.
4. funds. I prefer not to waste too much money while in Japan. a certain amount tops for each day

Fair enough! I've been to all those places myself! Akihabara is a good day trip, especially with friends. It's not too big, but the buildings are tall, so there are many floors, but many of the buildings are just clones of the others. You'll see a LOT of the same type of stuff, so it'll benefit you not trying to see everything. A maid cafe is always worth a trip too, if you don't mind being put on the spot and a little embarrassed. ha.

Harajuku does have stuff for tall people, as well as loose stuff. The 'punk teenager' style is not quite out of fashion around the younger tokyo crowd yet. But they do it like it's still the 80's. Demin, big loose shirts, suspenders, etc. You should be able to find what you're looking for. (I wanted to get a full suit made myself, their summer fabric is fantastic. you can wear a full suit in 30+ degrees C and still be comfortable)

Fuji-Q was a blast...definitely not the cheapest. I don't think it took us three hours to get there, maybe two or so (from Yokohama station) but there were 3-4 train transfers, and we got off on the wrong stop by accident, so that extended it a bit.

As for funds, depending on what you want to do, things are pretty cheap! Trains especially. As soon as you get there, head to a station and get a SUICA card. It'll be like a transit pass for swiping, instead of having to pay for a new ticket everytime. It's 5 bucks, can be loaded at many machines with cash, and costs nothing to maintain. In fact, when you're done, you can even return it for the 5 bucks! I kept mine for a momento. If you wanna know anything else about how much stuff costs, I'd be more than happy to tell you!
#65 - trevanman (03/15/2016) [-]
wait. suits
how long would it take to have a suit made?
how much would it cost?
and where would I get one made?

That video lied to you haha unless there are machines i'm unaware of.

Fair enough! neither did I till i went there lol

#72 - themassivefail (03/16/2016) [-]
It certainly isn't good haha. I never really ventured into cheese though...

The drinking age there is 20, which is a little odd as you can buy booze and cigs from vending machines on many MANY streets without the use of an ID. They have a lot of trust in their society, which I think is fantastic.
#73 - trevanman (03/16/2016) [-]
I thought I saw this youtube vid that explained you'd need some sort of special ID or card for buying cigs from vending machines.
not like I need it, since I don't smoke.
#64 - trevanman (03/15/2016) [-]
I've read somewhere that some maid cafes have very stuck up staff and some places don't even have english speaking staff. I'm not too sure about them, whether I'll visit one or not.

Fuji-Q has a day pass for around 5000 Yen. and then you can get in on anything. Did my research there.

I'm buying a rail pass next week, actually, the 2 week one. prices have been going down again, luckily. I'm gonna travel a lot and pretty far and pretty much every day. the only other tickets I need are the Kansai Thru twice 3 day passes for unlimited travelling with the Osaka metro and some buses in Kobe and Kyoto

Onigiri is worth a try, there are many flavours. I didn't find one I didn't like haha. Fair play on the sushi bit though, it's not for everyone.

Ah good, you can get chicken there cheaper than here haha. That's what I lived off. And rice. Stay away from the bacon though...
#71 - trevanman (03/16/2016) [-]
Japanese bacon is bad?
I was told to stay away from the cheese. small quantity for a shitload of money

do you have any idea what the drinking laws are like in Japan?
I mean, I'm fairly certain I'm allowed to drink, but just to be sure
